Meet the ABNH DT blog hop!


I'm so happy to be here today to announe the new 2013 DT for ABNH. Some of the same faces as last year are still with us, which is so wonderful, but we also have some newbies joining the team!

We thought rather than just do an announcement over at ABNH, we would do a blog hop to celebrate the new members.

Here is a full list of the hop participants:
Mary Dawn Quirindongo

And here is my card, welcoming the new members, and happily welcoming BACK the girls who are staying on from last year :)

ack, this photo is terrible! I'll try re-shooting first thing in the morning with better light. I swear this card is really lovely in real life!

Welcome new DT ladies, I can't wait to see what amazing creations you'll be brinnin us this year!

Now hop on over to Cheiron's blog  to see what she's made!

Thanks for stopping by!

Long time no see!

Hi there! Remember me?!

Wow sorry it's been so long since I've posted, first there was the flu, then the girls got sick, now I've got a ridiculous cough keeping me awake all night! ACK! Be gone plague!

OK so today I'm going to share a couple of cards I've made recently.

The first three were for my post over at Neat and Tangled--you can see the entire post HERE

and this next one is a nice, quiet card. (If a card can be quiet. I felt quiet when I made it so...)

This one is for the ABNH challenge that's just started. \

Hope you can join in on the challenge! Don't forget a

is up for grabs!

See you again soon!

SOS Challenge 84 BUTTONS

Hi friends!!

Sorry I've been mostly AWOL for the past few weeks, a lot going on and I'm a bit fluey I think! No energy :( I'll be back to normal soon.

It's that time again!

 Challenge 84 January 8: Buttons- Use some of your oldest buttons in your stash

 easy peasy!!

Here's what I made, using some cute colourful string my friend used to wrap my christmas present with, one of my oldest HA stamps, and some old old buttons :)

I put the string on with Multi Matte Medium, which dries clear and matte, so it's practically invisible!! The buttons are adhered on with the same thing, as well as some dimensional foam dots :)

Now it's your turn!!

Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the DT's creations--they're fab!
