Die Cut Dreams 1st Birthday Blog Hop

Can you believe its been a whole year since the Die Cut Dreams challenge started .... hasn't it been fun !!

To celebrate our birthday we are having a Blog Hop and all you have to do to be in with a chance to win is enter this weeks challenge first ... then do the Blog Hop.
We are joined this week by our old friend Vikki as Guest Designer and all the Dream Team girls including me have a little blog hop candy on our blogs so you need to hop round all our blogs, collect the letters and leave a comment. My candy will be a Surprise package for one lucky commenter.

If you have arrived here from Vikki´s Blog you are in the right place, if not please head back to Die Cut Dreams to retrace your steps and you will also find out what the fabulous prize on offer is there too.

This weeks Challenge theme is

1st Birthday so let´s see a No "1"

For my 1st card I have used a Kizzy Dizzy decoupage, it is ages since I did any decoupage considering this was my first love in carding. I have kept it simple and only added touches of gold glamour dust and gems. This card also fits the challenge at The Crafty Pad who have set the theme of Animal Fun.

The image for my 2nd card was a RAK , coloured with copics and prismas. I have cut him out and sat him upon the nesties. Sentiment is a See D, stars and brads are Papermania - paper and ribbons from my stash.

I have followed the sketch at Sketch and Stash, Paper Play want to see a card for a Child or Teenager, Charisma have set the theme of Metal Mickey and Everybody Art Challenge have a theme of Birthday´s.

Your next stop is Victoria´s Blog but you will need my letter before you leave so here it is.
