CHARISMA CARDS 2nd BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP AND CHALLENGE

It's Charisma Cardz 2nd Birthday this week and to celebrate we are having a blog hop along with a birthday/celebration challenge!!

If you have came here from the challenge blog then you are on the right track but if you have just stopped by my blog, you will want to hop over to the Charisma Cardz challenge blog and start the hop there, where the lovely Carlyann will tell you about all the fab prizes that are up for grabs!! :)


There are some fab prizes to be won and I think some of the design team may even have candy on their own blogs too! Unfortunately I don't have any candy to share today because I have had soooo much trouble just getting this post done because my computer has decided to switch itself off and not come back on (again!!) so I'm using Barry's computer which doesn't have my normal graphics program on it so I have no idea what I am doing with my pics lol.

The challenge as I said is Birthday or celebrations and if you add a number 2 on your creation, you will get a second entry!

So here's what I did.




 I used a sweet image from Pink Car Studio, coloured with Promarkers, then stamped a number 2 in the balloon.
I have no idea who make either of the papers I used because they were just bits I had left over from single 12x12 sheets and the names are no longer on them. Oh but the matting under the image is some spotty Bo Bunny paper.
The sentiment is digi freebie and the flowers are a mix of Wild Orchid Crafts and ones from Janlynn.com
Don't know if you can see very well in the pic, but I added some Stickles to all the flowers to make them sparkle :)




Now the next blog on the hop is Carol's,  but before you dash off to see what she has in store for you, you will need my special word which is .....2nd. you need to collect a word from every blog on the hop which will make up a phrase when you reach the end of the hop, so be sure to collect them all.

Thanks for stopping by
