Charisma Cardz Birthday Blog Hop

**ENDS TONIGHT 8pm GMT**


Happy Birthday Charisma Cardz

We're celebrating over at Charisma - it's our first birthday and we're having a blog hop to celebrate, with lots of lovely pressies (for you lot) along the way!

First things first though - this week's challenge, which is all about celebrations, it doesn't have to be birthday, any celebration is fine and here's my card for the challenge:

Birthday Cupcake

I had some koh-i-noor pencils for Christmas, so I've had a go at colouring my image in using them. Here's the rest of the details:

Image & sentiment - Penny Black
Papers - freebies from magazine
Cardstock - Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip & Whisper White
Other - SU! Word Window punch, die-cut flourishes from stash

And now on to the blog hop! If you've come here from Carly, you're in the right place, if not, go back to the Charisma blog and start from there

If you get lost along the way, here's the order you need to go in:

Jan (me)

You need to collect a word from each of us to make up a sentence and mine is "First"

Now for the goodies, there are some amazing prizes up for grabs on the blog, also each DT member is giving away a small candy and this is mine:

I'm offering:
a selection of stamped images (there'll be more in the actual prize)
a flower stamp from In My Mind's Eye
a small reel of black & white spotty ribbon
garden themed card toppers
handmade butterfly embellishments which are sparkly in real life
also a pad of papers (not shown)

To enter into my draw, just leave me a comment below, and I'll make the draw on the 6th January at 8.00 p.m. (GMT)

Don't forget to visit the rest of the teams blogs, and have fun with the challenge!
