Thats right peeps we are having a Birthday Celebration this week over at Sweet Stampin' Challenges & we are having a Birthday blog hop so come along & join in the fun..............So grab a pot of tea this is a long post.....ppssssttt bring the choccy bikkies as well....oh & the cake mmmm
Here is what they have to say over at the challenge blog.....
'Welcome to the Sweet Stampin First Birthday Blog Hop! If you've just come from the lovely Vals Blog then you are in the right place! While you're here, please leave me a comment, enter my Candy and then hop over to Sweet Stampin for your final hop. Don't forget you need to enter this weeks Sketch Challenge at Sweet Stampin to be eligible to win any Design Team Candy! If you think you've lost your way, head back to Sweet Stampin and start from there!'

Did you get that peeps? Basically each of us girls have a wee bit of candy & in order to win the fab candy you need to leave a message on every DT hop along the way & leave a message on the Sweet Stampin blog & enter the sketch......really easy when you think about it lol.....
Here is my interpretation of the sketch....dont forget you can flip & rotate the sketch we dont mind.....

This is a new stamp I got about 2 weeks ago but our household has had its drama's this last 2 weeks so its bin hectic so to speak lol. Anyway this is from Crafts & Me she is called 'The Gift' & she is by Molly Harrison, you can find this stamp here. She has been coloured with Promarkers, Prismacolour pencils & Diamond Dust stickles & Baby Blue stickles. This is 1 of those images that doesn't need much colour she is pretty enough as it is....

The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs the 'Christmas Delight' digi set here. The snowflake I made free-hand with acetate, stickles & a button for the middle & left to dry of course. The sentiment is by WOJ but its not showing up too good, it was stamped with 'Tumbled Glass' distress ink as too were all the papers. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons & gems from my stash.

The netting stuff behind the image I found in my stash, its white with blobs of white stuff on to look like snow....its so pretty IRL. The blue card is from Papermill & the edges have been embossing with snowflake embossing powder. There is lots of sparkle on this card.
Right onto my little bit of candy.....I couldn't actually decide what to give away but I have had this stamp for months & its never been undone which I just think should be illegal to neglect stamps like this.....ssshhh I do so many times I should be ashamed.........

Crafter's Companion Flower Fairies stamp 'Zinnia'.....I have had this in my drawer kept new for about 4 months so I am offering it as candy to 1 lucky person who I'm sure will not neglect it like I have.....
Well thats it for those who stayed to the end WELL DONE!!! WOOO HOOOO, for those who fell asleep get some coffee lol.
Pop on over to the blog to look at what my fab teamies have made & also what candy is being offered.
Above all else don't forget the most important thing in all this.......
Have Fun!!!!! Its what crafting is about.........

Thankyou for stopping by & leaving your wonderful messages huge hugs to every1 of you
