The theme at Crafty Boots Challenges this fortnight is ‘Anything Goes’.  You can join in the challenge as normal but there are 12 extra chances for you to win a prize by joining the first ever Crafty Boots blog hop!

If you are joining in the hop you should have got here from Dionne’s blog .  If you haven’t blog hopped before it is really simple, just start at the Crafty Boots Challenge blog and hop through the design team blogs in the order set out on that page.  Each of the design team members has a word or two for you to collect which will reveal a message at the end.  Once you have collected that message email it to to be entered into the draw to win the prize of three digis of your choice from Hope Jacare Doodles.  You must also become a follower of all the design team’s blogs (and Claire’s) to be eligible to win the prizes.

Hello and welcome I would like to wish you all good luck with the blog hop
and thank you for joining in,my choice of image is called Mouse House and I coloured it in using promarker

Don’t forget that myself and each of the design team members has a prize of candy up for grabs, this will include a sample pack of the fantastic new Crafty Boots Deluxe card along with a few other goodies.  Be sure to leave a comment on each of our blogs and follow us to be in with a chance of winning our candy!

My words for the secret message are:

Your next stop is Emma T’s blog .
The deadline for both the Anything Goes challenge, and the blog hop (and candy) is Sunday 11 th December at 12 Noon (UK time).

Christmas cards

some christmas cards I have made over the last few week
the first one is Stampavie holly jolly coloured in using
copic the second card is Stampavie polar present
coloured in using promarkers,the third card is Stampavie
purrfect christmas coloured in using promarkers and last
but not least is Magnolia sweet christmas dreams ,I really enjoyed
making the holly jolly card as the colours are quite bright
and different from the colours we tend to use this time of year
I have been picking my papers first and then taking the colours
from there which I used to do the other way around,but I'm finding
this way better as I am now using colours I would not normally use
