Birthday Blog Hop & new challenge at Annabelle Stamps

Morning everyone. Welcome back to my blog, lots of fun things happening here today, so I am going to be busy busy busy!!!

Firstly....we are celebrating 1 year since we opened our AnnaBelle Stamps store and we have a little surprise for someone, a $20.00 gift voucher to spend in store! So if you'd like to join in our blog hop for your chance to win you'll need to start at the AnnaBelle Blog and follow the link to your next blog. Simply leave a comment as you go :)There are so many wonderful goodies in the Annabelle Shop, so this is a wonderful prize.

****The next person you need to visit is JERUSHA, go and leave a comment on her blog :)****

On a personal note, it has been an absolute pleasure to have been involved with Andrea and Annabelle Stamps. Andrea has the biggest kindest heart, and is amazingly generous. The stamp sets that she has produced are of the highest quality, and are just wonderful to work with. So Andrea, from me to you...a HUGE thank-you for all that you have done for me and the other DT girls in the time we have been working for you :)

We also have a new challenge for you this week, and that is to create a GREY & YELLOW card. I don't think I have ever used this color combo on a card before, but when I put this card together I was pleasantly surprised, it really works!!

Here is my card:



I used the gorgeous "Branch Out" stamp set for this card. I love this set because I find it is super easy to use to make a more masculine type card. I also added some yummy Pineapple Sprinkles, also by Annabelle Stamps. Here is just a look at the rest of the stamps included in the "Branch Out" set.


I really hope you will Blog Hop with us!!! As far as the challenge goes, you have 2 weeks to make your card, and link it to the Annabelle Blog. You also have 1 week left to take part in the Sketch Challenge to stand a chance to win the "Diva" stamp set.

Please stop back here later today. I am participating in another Hop, this time for Scrapbook Challenges, and there are some SPECTACULAR (I mean really SPECTACULAR) prizes up for grabs :)
