THE CARNIVAL

Clowns, Fairy floss, sticky fingers, squeals of delight and of course complaints of sore feet near the end of the day... Where are we?

THE CARNIVAL!!
If you just popped on by to say Hello and want to join us on the super carnival hop then you’ll want to ‘START HERE’ with me.
Zoe from
Make it Crafty and Mo from Mo’s Digital Pencil, came together to share the delight and fun of The Carnival. To celebrate - the two fabulously talented teams have come together for a massive blog hop to offer you plenty of inspiration when playing with these images.

Along the way you will find balloons with a letter in them.





Print





Write down the letters as you go because at the very end we want you to guess what the saying is!
There will be THREE grand prizes randomly drawn from the correct answers PLUS there will be hidden prizes along the way so make sure you leave some love as you hop along!
Now we know this is a super big hop, but we wanted to make sure you would get LOTS of inspiration! The hop will be open until the 28thApril so you will have plenty of time to come back each day with a cuppa to soak it all up! (Just don’t lose the letters you have been collecting!)



I have one carnival Themed Card and one Fun Card to show you



Below is JoJo from Mo’s Digital Pencil and Ticket Booth by Make it Crafty
Jojo ticket tent




Next up is a Card that I just couldn’t resist making.



Images used are Little Smooch by Mo’s Digital Pencil and Uni Cycle by Make it Crafty



and I think the sentiment is just perfect for the images



little smooch unicycle_jak heath




Make sure you leave a comment for a ‘possible’ chance at winning some hidden treasure
and then your next stop on the hop is Bea



We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors, Mo’s Digital Pencil, Make it Crafty, Stamping Bella and Quixotic Paperie for providing the fabulous prizes for this grand carnival hop!




...........................

No for Something Close to all of our hearts "Helping Children" Mo and Zoe are doing a fund raiser image along side the hop it will only cost $1 and all proceeds will go to the Make a Wish Foundation for the UK and the US.

I just discovered your blog and am a subscriber and admirer immediately! I came because of Helping Katie from another blog. I bought the awesome digi package being sold to help her and have a question- I know several designers works are in this package #1- and I know the shoe and paper is yours- what about the hot air balloon and firetruck and whale stamps? Are they yours? I want to give proper credit when I blog with them.
