Hello to a new challenge blog.

Today is launch day for a brand new exciting challenge blog.  Digi Sketch Challenge blog goes live today, and I am honoured to be on the DT for it.  The theme this week is "Love is in the air", rather appropriate with Valentine's Day this Thursday.  And our fabulous sponsor Scrapiness Designs are offering the winner a digi kit of their choice.
I used the "Oh My Love" mini kit and made a love themed card.

The challenge is open for two weeks, and you can either use the sketch on the page, the theme or both. Why not pop over and join in with us?
We also have a page on FB, Digi Sketch Challenge, we would love it if you could "like" us x

It's launch day for Hurley HQ.

Hello and welcome to my wee crafty corner in cyberspace, if you are following the Sarah Hurley Blog Hop you have arrived here from the blog of the lovely Elaine. If you have just stumbled across my page then hello, and why not pop over to the first blog on the hop? which belongs to the lady behind the beautiful pretties we get to play, I mean create with - Sarah Hurley.
Todays hop is all about the launch of Sarah's brand new website. Now you can see all of Sarah's gorgeous products in one place.  To celebrate the launch we are all showcasing items we have made using kits and embellishments that are available from the online store.  I used the very versatile and pretty Kissing Booth digi kit to create my card.
I used the papers from the kit to create bunting with dies and put that onto bakers twine to create a line of bunting.  I die cut two pretty birdies from the papers and popped them ontop of the bunting.  I die cute the love using papers from the kit too.

I took lots of different shots to show the dimension that I have created on the card.

You may have noticed some very pretty crochet flowers and pegs in my pictures and these are also available from Sarah and are part of the "A Few of My Favourite Things" monthly kit.

I also had to pop on some of my favourite items from the store which is of course these delicious chipboard stars.  I have used gilding flakes on these ones, but the options are endless.

I have told you my favourite thing, so why not tell me your favourite product from the shop in the comments below or on Sarah's FB Page and you have a chance to win it plus a £10 voucher to use in Sarah's shop.  There are THREE chances to win, so the more comments you leave, the more chances you have of winning - good luck.

Your next stop on the hop is the lovely Lisa. Have fun and thanks for popping by.
