My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

Sunday Sketch & Stamp 52 - Happy 2nd Birthday Challenge! - DT Card

Well good morning everyone - sorry I haven't been around much this week, although it has been the school holidays I have found it really hard to get into the craft room and blog, hence the lack of posts and this gorgeous weather hasn't helped either.  Also we have started major works on the front of the house, so all free time has been diverted elsewhere.  I hope to be back to some normality soon!

Anyways, prepare yourself as this post is a long one! LOL. Firstly I would like to say a BIG welcome to my new followers, thank you for joining me and secondly it's Sunday and time for our challenge at Sunday Sketch & Stamp and this week is a very special challenge as it is our 2nd Birthday!  There are two big surprises, the first is that we are becoming a weekly challenge and the second we are announcing our new DT members and on top of this, we have a fabulous prize for the winning card and we are also having a blog hop!

Firstly I would like to welcome onboard our 7 new DT members:-

Please pop on over to their blogs and give them a warm welcome.  They will be joining us officially with effect from 1st May 2011.

So onto the Birthday challenge - Maggie has produced our fabulous Birthday sketch this week with the added theme of "Birthday".

 And here is my take on it

Card Ingredients:

LOTV Rosie With Cake Stamp
Dovecraft Back to Basics Papers & Buttons
Crystal Stickles
DCWV Cardstock
Rub-on Greeting

We have some fabulous sponsors this week too!

For those of you taking part in the blog hop, my Birthday is 17th November.  Make sure you visit everyone's blogs, in no particular order and collect the Birthdays and send the full list to the challenge email address with the title "2nd Birthday Blog Hop".

As well as the new DT members listed above, here are the existing DT members blogs you should be hopping to (16 of us in total). And don't forget, some of the girls are offering their own special Birthday candy too!

And finally some sad news! Arianne is leaving us and this will be her last challenge, she is really busy with life and work.  We will miss you hun and hope you will pop back and visit us regularly.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

I Love Promarkers 62 Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion 54 You've Been Spotted
Stamp With Fun 107 Birthday
delicious Doodles 22 Anything Goes

Well I think thats about it (hope you are still with me LOL) - phew that was a long one!  So I do hope you will join in with us this week for our Birthday challenge and I look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing your fabby creations.
