Crafts & Me Blog Hop

Good evening all my lovely friends here I am with my 2nd post today.
Crafts and Me Challenges recently celebrated their 1st Anniversary and we have also taken on some new teamies which now includes a Digital Design Team plus new faces also on the Rockin Rubbah team so we thought we'd celebrate with a little blog hop!


We have goodies hidden on various teamies blogs so I hope you'll leave them all a nice comment along the way :)

If you've arrived from the lovely Mina you're on the right track!  If not, you need to start at the Crafts and Me Challenge blog, click HERE to go to the start!

We're running the hop from 1st April to Midnight (GMT) 15th April so a whole 2 weeks to play along. You need to collect the letters to form a phrase and leave comments on each individual stop to be eligible for the individual prizes plus the grand prize. Once you have collected all the letters leave a comment on the Crafts & Me shop Blog. Hop post.

My letter for you is T & I am hiding 'Rubber' so you could win one of Crafts & Me fabulous rubber stamps.

Here is my creation using Petal Melody which of course you can get here.
Finally got round
to decorating one of these brown gift bags I've had them since last November lol.

This is the back where you can write a message. I got the inspiration from a few blogs a couple months ago but cant remember which ones sorry.....





Coloured with Copics.


Thank you so much for coming to visit, don't forget to leave me a comment and hop on over to the lovely Sylvia Big hugs to all that come & leave a comment mmwah.

Tatty bye my lovelies.
Hugs Vicky xoxoxoxo

So much so that you made me want to learn more about it. Your blog is my stepping stone, my friend. Thanks for the heads up on this subject.
