A Mother's Work - My Besties Challenge and Blog Hop - Mothers Day

THIS POST IS STICKY! It will stay at the top until May 19th so please scroll down for all new posts, thank you!




It's a super exciting day at the Besties Challenge today as we are announcing the first half of our new Design Team!



I was posting on Sherri's blog, along with some of the others, but some of us have switched around and we have also added a great group of other wonderful artists!

Some of us will be posting each week (me!), some of us every other week, and we are sure to have a superb selection of projects to show you.
We are starting off this new team with an awesome Blog Hop with prizes that you won't want to miss.
Each blog has Candy on it so be sure to visit all and leave comments on all and there will also be a Grand Prize at the Besties Blog of $30 of Digi Stamps and 3 Bestie clear stamps!


You should have come to me from Wendy but if you didn't here is a list so you don't miss any of the fun (or Candy!!!)
Be sure to comment on all and become a follower of the challenge blog to be in with a chance of winning.

Paper - Fabulous Girl by Recollections
Banner Die - Party Banner by Little Miss Muffet
Ribbon - Michaels
Doily - Wilton
Flowers - Prima
Fabric Brad - Heidi Grace





I decoupaged parts of Daisy to give her a little more depth, gosh you need sharp scissors for her thin arms and fingers I cam close to chopping her hand off! Ha Ha!
She is such a cutie and if I looked this cute when I was cleaning I think I may do it more often, well in my dreams maybe!
Now you have seen Daisy be sure HOP HOP HOP ALONG to Colette for the next stop and don't forget to link up below and then leave me a comment mentioning you've linked to be in with a chance of winning my Candy. Although not required for this hop I would love it if you would be a follower too if you aren't already, I'd love to get to 1000 followers and have already started another Candy selection for when that happens so you don't want to miss it ;)
Katie

PS - I see that some of you are struggling to enter via Inlinkz, all you need to do is add your name and email address, I have disabled the need for your blog address but if you do have a blog please link as I love to see everyones work.

This is so cute and you have used some of my fave colours too...The blog candi looks like a fantastic prize to win too ..thanks so much for this xxx

Paula said...

Love your cute card, Katie! She's adorable the way you've colored her. And I am a follower of your blog now:)

I'm not entering a card for the "additional chance" to win, that Sherri mentioned on the Challenge Blog, just leaving a comment on all the blogs in the hop. So I'm confused about your request asking us to "link below"... I'm not sure what that means. But if lack of doing a link leaves me out of the running for your blog candy, that's OK. I've enjoyed seeing your post for this hop and look forward to more posts as a follower :)
