Sneak Peeks Day2 and Colour Create Challenge Blogaversary

Good morning everyone

Well... I have a fun packed and rather long post for you all today!!

First of all we are celebrating the 1 year blogaversary at the Colour Create Challenge.

There is some fabulous candy on the Colour Create Challenge Blog and my teamies and I each have some candy of our own. So make sure you stop by and check out each of their blogs too!!

Today's Colour Create Challenge #38 is brought to us by the very talented "Di" and she has chosen.....Red, White or Off-White, Chocolate, Pink and the extra option is "Hearts and Silver"

The adorable image I have used on my card is " Best Friends Forever" from Wag's N' Whiskers "Wee Ones Collection".

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows.
I used my nesties ovals for the frame and used a piercing tool to pierce the holes.I used my MS heart punch for the border. The flowers were made with my MS hydrangea punch and I added a metal spacer and a flat backed pearl to each flower. The DP is from Basic Grey.

Thanks to the lovely Lacey, this is the stamp I am giving away for my blog candy today.... as well as my card. All you have to do to qualify for your chance to win this beautiful stamp and the card is leave a comment here on this post. Easy peasy...Eh!!

I hope you will have time to play along with us.......and don't forget to stop by the Colour Create Blog to see the beautiful creations my teamies have to share with you.... as well as all the details for our blogaversary candy celebration.

Wags N' Whiskers Sneak Peek Day 2

I hope you enjoyed yesterdays sneak peeks. The Diva's did an amazing job of bring them all to life with their beautiful creations.

Tomorrow we will be celebrating the new spring release with a Blog Hop....with lots of prizes along the way....

Today for the Wags N' Whiskers new release peeks I am using the image "Just For You". Isn't he just so handsome!!

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows.
I cut out another set of flowers and layered them. I did the border with my MS flower border punch. I also added some tiny flat backed pearls. The Dp is from a Basic Grey paper pad.
I cut out the sentiment from the DP.

I hope you like it....

Now be sure to pop by the Wags N' Whiskers Blog to find the links for the Diva's blogs and check out today's fabulous creations. All the details for tomorrows blog hop are there too.

Have a wonderful day and Thanks so much for stopping by...
