Some More News & a Blog Hop

Hello everyone how are you all enjoying your weekend....a long weekend for the UK!! This is a longish post as I have quite a bit to tell you but its worth staying til the end if you will, so pull up a comfy chair, relax, have a cuppa on the ready!! 2 weeks ago tomorrow I had such a fabulous Monday, in the evening I had a fantastic e-mail off Crafty Emma offering me a DT position & in the morning of that Monday I received an e-mail from Rachael aka Cowgirl Up Designs offering me a position to be on their posse......I was not feeling good that day but by the end of the day I was running around waving my arms in the air like some lunatic who has just escpaed from some asylum lmao. I was grinning all day long....actually all week long if I'm being honest I never EVER thought I was good enough to be on any DT yet alone 2, there are such a lot of talented crafters out there I am in awe of them every single day.
Anyway I'm done with my exciting news now I will get on with my post. Finally I can shout that I'm on the Posse over Cowgirl Up & today is my first posting & whats more they have a Blog-Hop over on  Cowgirl Up Designs there is candy on offer for the blog-hop. Also Crafty Ribbons is the sponsor of the challenge this week & they are giving away these fab ribbons......
Arn't they gorgeous!! The winner of the challenge will win these AND they get to choose 3 images from Cowgirl Up Ranch & a winners badge for their blog. There will also be a Top3 & they get to choose 2 images from the ranch & they get the Top 3 winners badge to display on their blogs.

Right now onto the 'Hop' there is candy to win in the hop I will post pics as soon as I receive them. If you have hopped here from Tina's then you are on the right track if not then you need to go here & start from the beginning Cowgirl Up.
The blog-hop is to kick off the new images that are being released today, also there is a 25% sale on the flower range for this week only. So why not get yourself over to the ranch & check it out, all of the images are fab!!
To win the candy for the blog hop you have to hop along the list in order & look for a letter, once you have collected all the letters they will spell out a sentence, when you have the answer e-mail it to 
So can you see my letter??? The letter is repeated in a few places but you only need to write it down the once lol. When you hop on to each posse's blog leave a comment so we know you have been there & finish off by returning back to Cowgirl Up & leaving a comment there. Your next hop is over to the lovely Alison

Here is my 1st card for the challenge.....the Challenge this week is 'Make your own flowers'

I decided that the image would suit a tent card fabulously so here is my 1st tent card. I really enjoyed making this so you could be seeing more of these as well as my beloved easel cards lol. The papers are from Basic Grey but I cant remember the name of the pad....oops sorry!!! The ribbon is of course from Crafty Ribbons which I brought a while ago. The flowers I made by using my retro flower punch & adding a gem to the middle. The hanging bracket at the top was made using my Tim Holtz Hanging Sign & running it through my Cuttlebug. The leaves & butterfly were also made with punches & the image is from Cowgirl Up & was coloured in using Promarkers. The middle I cut out using 1 of my nestabilities through my cuttlebug, I then added gems every so often around the edge.
Did you make it too the end??? If you did then 'Well Done' you get yourself another cuppa as a reward he he hee. Well thats if for me I will be back later with another card,  see ya soonies, thank you for visiting me....I luuurrrrvvvveeee visitors!!!

Also I would like to welcome my new followers & send them thanks. I would also like to thank all of you that have left comments they really do cheer me up so thankyou, thankyou, THANKYOU!! lol
Bye-D-Bye for now
Hugs to all
