The Squirrel and The Fox Birthday Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to my part in the Squirrel and the Fox blog hop!



If you have come here from Mags B's blog, then you’re in the right place. If you just happened to stumble upon my blog, head to The Squirrel and The Fox to start at the beginning and read how the hop works. You can also see all the amazing prizes up for grabs.

To celebrate one whole year of The Squirrel and The Fox, the team are giving away some wonderful prizes. There’s even an individual prize for just landing here on this page.
To showcase their work, each DT member is also showing off some of their favourite creations. I have chosen this card, made by me in July this year.

I love this card for a few reasons. This card uses my first Tiddly Inks image and I made it for my Mum and Dad's 40th wedding anniversary. 
 


 I love the antique lace that was from my grandmother and the little birdcage charm from Scrap Matrix.





The prize that is being given away from my blog has been generously donated by Designed to Color and it is a one year subscription to their digital magazine - how awesome is that??
 
If you haven't heard of this magazine, you have to check it out. It's the magazine completely devoted to stampers and paper crafters that love to colour. After seeing it, I am going to subscribe to it myself!
To win this prize, simply leave your comment below (which you are doing anyway as part of the hop), become a follower of my blog and at the end of the hop I will randomly draw one winner.  It's that easy! Remember, to be eligible for any prizes, you must complete the entire hop.
Thank you for visiting. Now you’re off to visit my fabulous teammate Vanessa . Happy Hopping!”
