Kenny K Krafty Girlz challenge 42

Happy Easter everyone..... anyone feel sick yet? lol.... 
Well a brand new challenge is starting over at Kenny K's KG Challenge blog.... and this week the theme is SPRINGTIME....

I have used Dancer, who can be found HERE, at the Shop and all the papers are by Donna, at Bearly Mine Crafts, they are gorge, and fit in perfectly with the theme this week.  You also have the chance of owning some of these yourself, if you enter the challenge using a Kenny K image, as Donna is giving away 2 digi sets of winners choice!!!  (plus as usual, Kenny is giving the winner 5 digi images of choice too...) so its defo worth joining in the fun.
I have used copics... as always.. :), and the swirl is by Marianne Creatables, the binding ribbon is by SU, pearls from MeiFlower.
Sorry this is going to be short and sweet today, and still 101 things to do before the holiday and wedding.  I will now be away for about 3 weeks total..... so my poor little blog will suffer.... But no doubt I will be back with vengance, hehe.. as will probably be suffering from withdrawels from copics LOL.. (even son asked can I be parted with them for a few weeks... or do I need to take some with me for a fix !) lol
Have a Fab bank holiday all..... and make sure you pop over to the other DT's blogs and check out their wonderful cards.... (I have told all 'my' girlz to behave whilst I away   ) LOL...
Until I return............... bfn... Bali here I come ! :)   hugz Jackie xxx

Good morning peeps....

We have a brand new challenge starting today over at A Gem of A Challenge, and for this next fortnight, the challenge is...... Pearls and Swirls...  you can either use one or both, me being greedy, went for both LOL... I have used Denzil Dragon, isnt he just soooo adorable, you can find him HERE in the Pink Gem shop, he was a dream to colour up. (mind you I find all of Janet's images fabby to colour) :)

I have no idea what copics I used, sorry, as made this a little while ago, as trying to catch up on all my DT work before I jet off... not long now :)   The die I was was a Marianne Creatables, if thats any help LOL.. and all the papers were just oddments in my stash box. 

Right I really must dash now, as off shopping.... being dragged kicking and screaming by youngest daughter lol... (I hate shopping)...  much rather go and play in craft room.
Have a fabby weekend all.... and us at AGOAC all look forward to seeing your fantastic makes.

Help for Japan - Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to a very special blog hop today!  You may have been on the first hop that Whimsy put on for this special cause.  Well, there were so many who volunteered to join in that we had to do a second one!  The illustrators of Whimsy Stamps have come together to draw a special set of digi images for the purpose of raising money for the relief effort in Japan.  All proceeds from the sale of these images will be donated to that cause.   Kenny K, Raindrop Echo Designs, Meljens Designs, and Crissy Armstrong all contributed art work. 
For the whole month of April, you can purchase the images as a set or individually (your choice)  by visiting this page on the Whimsy store site.  Please consider helping this special cause by purchasing one or all of the digital images we are offering.  
If you have landed here from Vanessa's blog, you are right on track.  If you have come here randomly and would like to start hopping from the beginning, please go to Ann's blog.   She has the blog rotation order posted if you need to refer to it. 
The amazing ladies of two design teams have come together to host this blog hop for you!  Ann's team from Sentimental Sundays and the Kenny K Krafty Girlz have joined forces to design some amazing jaw dropping creations for you.  You have seven days to hop through all the blogs and enjoy all the lovely creations from these talented people. 
The hop runs from now through til Sunday April 17 at noon.  There will be several opportunities to win blog candy!  Four random commenters will get a chance to receive one of the three individual images or Ann's sentiment set.  So be sure to leave comments all along the way for your chance at a free digi!  Also, if you post the "Help for Japan" button on your blog's sidebar, you can enter into the draw for the grand prize!  The grand prize will consist of the entire digital set made just for this cause as well as a gift certificate donated by Ann of Raindrop Echo Designs worth 10$ to use at the Whimsy Stamps store! 
To enter, you must help us advertise for this cause by posting the "Help for Japan" button on your blog's side bar (just grab it from my side bar or from the top of this post) and then get your name on the Inlinkz option on Ann's post so we can be sure to find the winner.
