It's our Birthday - come help us celebrate - Happy Birthday !

This week over on I ♥ ProMarkers we’re having a Blog Hop to celebrate our 1st Birthday which will also be our weekly challenge #52.

I hope you will all join us in our first ever Blog Hop by creating a Birthday themed card and posting a link to it on the challenge blog here.

We have prizes from Whiff of Joy and Letraset and some gorgeous beaded pins created by our very own Karen for the lucky winner.  In addition each of the DT members will  have a mini prize to give away to one lucky visitor to their blog who leaves a comment.

The Blog Hop will end at 6 pm on Tuesday 15th February and names of the winners will be placed on the challenge blog, along with our next challenge, on Wednesday 16th February.

I'm giving away a mini Candy to celebrate - here's what you can win :

Papers, assorted ribbons and lace, toppers, stamp and a wee box which I created and decorated to hold some small choccie bars especially for you.

I may add some extras in too, maybe some diecuts, flowers etc - in fact if you tell me in our comment what you would like me to add, I'll see what I can do!  I will add in a stamp from Faerie Art Song Stamps if I get more than 30 comments too.

For a chance to win, just leave me a comment under this post and complete the hop by visiting all the DT blogs.  If you decide to become a Follower on my blog, that would be totally Awesome, but don't feel you have to. 

You should have arrived here after visiting Lorraine's blog but if you just came straight here, start back at the beginning on the I ♥ Promarkers Challenge blog and visit all the DT blogs in order.  Don't forget to enter a link to your project on the challenge blog to be in with a chance of winning the fabulous main birthday prize.  Here’s the order of the DT blog hop:

Karen
Kate
Julie
Lorraine
Wynneth - you are here
Ruth
Tine
Kathleen

Then go back to I ♥ ProMarkers and leave a link to your project on Mr Linky.

Now for the details of my DT card.  The images and sentiment are from the January Myka Jelina monthly kit from Queen Kat Designs.  I coloured them with my ProMarkers, background patterned papers were magazine freebies and layers were cut from SU! So Saffron and Pretty in Pink cardstock.  Martha Stewart heart border punch, Nellie's Choice heart die set and Cuttlebug tiny hearts embossing folder were used for the various elements of the card. 

I'm so looking forward to seeing your entries for this special Birthday Challenge and to visiting your blogs to check out your work.  Now head on over to Ruth's blog and check out her creation and leave her a comment to be in with a chance to win her prize.


Note added:  Welcome to my new Followers - Allison and Donna - it's so great to have you on board girls!
