Sarah Hurley Challenge - Bling and Sparkle xxx

Good morning all

I'm still on my happy holiday so another wee scheduled post today!

This time at Sarah Hurley Challenges we have a fab little challenge for you all

"Bling and Sparkle!!"

We want to see all your creation all sparkley and glittery and with that touch of bling to it!! And remember you don't need to use any of Sarah's products tho she would love it if you did!!

We have been lucky enough to be Sponsored my My Mum's Craft Shop this time and the winner can get a wee voucher to spend in the utterly fabulous shop!!

Sorry the quote is a bit blurry, couldn't get a perfect picture of it! It says 

"What if Christmas he thought
doesn't come from a store?
What if Christmas, perhaps
means a little bit more?"
Dr. Seuss - The Grinch

I adore the movie The Grinch and loved and just had to have this wee quote when I seen it!!

Remember you have two weeks to play along with Sarah Hurley Challenges and don't forget to check out all the Dt's amazing creations for some fab inspiration!

Afternoon my lovelies

This is a wee scheduled post as I'm just getting ready to go off on my wee holidays! Mexico here I come heee

This fortnight at Dream Valley Challenges we have a wee twist of a challenge for you, sorta fruity in a way heee

Very in your face isnt it??
Yip, its a lil colour challenge for you to get your teeth into


As usual you can enter anything into the Challenge as long as it follows the colour theme! We have another fab sponsor and prize up for grabs for one LUCKY winner!!

"Hi my name is Stitchy and I am Co-Owner of Stitchy Bear Stamps...we started this store April 1st, No Fooling haha..I live in upstate New York with my husband and two TEENAGE adults haha, I do say that loosely as they think they run the show here, NOT...
I been creating stamps for a little less than a year now and I am totally addicted to the craft..I started about 4 years ago making digital scraps and I knew there was much more out there, so a friend of mine introduced me to digital stamps...and the rest they say is history...I look forward to seeing all the beautiful creations come through...good luck everyone..stitchy xoxox"

And the fab Prize for the wee winner is a $10.00 voucher for their store

The team were lucky enough to be given some of the fab images from Stitchy's HUGE range of images and I used the wee Flight of Fantasy on my wee card

I loved using this wee image against the colours! The black just pops right out!

I hope you will join us this fortnight and try your hand at our bright "zingy" colour challenge and maybe win a wee prize too!
