Stamp Something ,,,,,,,,Celebration Hop and Anything Goes !!! :-)

Hi all and this week we have a very special 3rd Birthday blog hop on the Stamp Something Challenge :-) Lots of sooper dooper prizes on offer this week from lots of sponsors, you can see the whole list on the challenge blog :-)

If you arrived here from the super talented Lisa N’s blog then you are going in the right direction. If not then you will need to start from the Stamp Something Challenge blog :-)

The theme this week is ANYTHING GOES !!

For my card I used a Hero Arts Eggshell Note card for the base some very cute new Hero Arts stamps using images from the Life of the Party Cutouts and Life of the Party Birthday stamp sets. What little colouring there is was done with copics and I added star dust stickles for sparkle :-) The papers are Jillibean Blossom Soup ( my current faves !! ) and I just added a few Hero Arts black pearls to finish Smile

Now I know this looks simple but it took me AGES to make ,,, lol ,, lots of faffing about ummin and arrin !!

This is not my usual style and I wasn’t very sure whether I liked it or not but Amy ( my 17 yr old arty daughter) thought it was ‘HIP’ so I am using it instead of starting again Smile

My candy for the hop is sponsored by my lovely Boss Heidi from Simon Says Stamp :-)

This is the candy on offer !! These fabulous exclusive Hero Arts stamps are not available to the general public in a set like this !! so they are extra special :-)

The papers are Prima, Sparkling Spring papers and I used my new Spellbinders Large Inverted Scalloped and Beaded Circle dies. I also used a Martha Stewart Scalloped Heart and border punch.
