Penny Black at All Sorts - BLOG HOP

This post will stay on top until January 22nd. Please scroll down for newer posts.

I'm so excited!! It is time for our very first blog hop at Penny Black @ All sorts with lots of prizes sponsored by the Penny Black company!

If you arrived here from Maarit's amazing blog you are on the right track, if not you will want to go back to the beginning, the Penny Black @ All Sorts Challenge blog to start. There are awesome prizes on every DT members blog, so be sure to leave comments along the way for a chance to win.

Also be sure to look closely on each blog as there are letter clues for you to find. After you find all letters you should be able spell out the two words below and be entered in another drawing at another amazing prize from Brenda herself.

Of course I wanted to make a card to go along with the blog hop. I just love this cute stamp. It's called "Guess what".


It's been colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil. The papers are from my ever growing stash, I think it's bo bunny but I am not sure.

I embellished with some prima flowers and brads, and then applied some stickles glitter and sewed around the edges with my janome mini sewing machine.
The sketch is from a Mojo Monday sketch from a couple of weeks ago.

And here are the challenges I am combining:

My blog is actually the last stop. You should now have collected all letters. After you figure out your answer you need to send an email to Brenda at brenda@ibas.co.uk with your answer for a chance at another great prize from the lovely Brenda.

To make it a little bit easier for you, we are providing you with this little help.

---A- -----S

----------------------------------------------------

And here is the prize that is up for grabs here at my blog, sponsored by the Penny Black company.


In order to win these 2 great stamps above, all you have to do is leave a comment and then add your name and blog link with mr linky below. I will choose a winner the day after the blog hop ends and Brenda will be sending them out to the lucky winner.

This blog hop starts
8am BST on 15th January and will close at midnight BST on 22nd January. So you have a whole week to hop along!

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the blog hop and don't forget to send Brenda an email with the words you came up with to be entered in the other drawing.

Please add your name and blog link with mr linky and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win the 2 cute stamps above!

Blog hop ended, please do not add link!

Ellie,
the stamps you are giving away are just in time for Valentine's day! I don't have a blog so I couldn't figure out the linky thingie. Your coloring with the coloursoft pencils and baby oil look just like copic coloring. The mouse and hedge hog stamps are so precious. I enjoy coloring them with an aqua painter and reinkers from SU. =D
