Before we get to the hop, there’s more details and a surprise in order… Everyone in this blog hop is giving away Blog Candy!! Whoohoo!!

I’d ask if you’re ready for some inspiration yet, but wait… we’ve got yet another surprise for you!!We contacted one of Zoe’s artists (S.H.) who also wanted to participate and drew us this gorgeous party girl for the occasion. Thank you!!
This is “Party Girl Zoe” and isn’t she ca-ute?!! We wanted to make sure everyone was included in our celebration so we’re giving away Party Girl Zoe as a freebie to everyone who wants to join in and spread some birthday cheer!! All youneed to do is create a new project using a Make it Crafty image or chippies and upload it into the gallery HERE by October 12th. Then email Barbara, at ForgottenScraps@gmail.com with a link to your project to claim her!
Now are you ready for some Christmas inspiration? Grab a cuppa, sit back and relax, and get ready to enjoy a plethora of inspiration from the design team.
On my card I have used the most adorable little Christmas angel – Sweet Angel. She’s available as a digital image in today’s release over at Make it Crafty.
I coloured her with ShinHan Touch Twin brush markers on Make it Colour Blending Card. The designer papers and the word sticker are from the Echo Park Season’s Greetings 12×12 collection kit (also available as a 6×6 paper pad) and I layered a couple of chipboard snowflakes from a Make it Crafty Lasercut Chipboard pack, and popped a gem in the middle. I also coloured some white ribbon with a ShinHan Touch Twin Marker (R5) to match the bow on the image.
Here’s a colour map to show the marker colours I used on the image:
Now, time for a little candy! I’m giving away a pack of yummy Make it Colour Blending Card! Yep, 25 sheets of my favourite cardstock for use with alcohol based markers (and it’s great for pencils too). To win, all you need to do is enter your details in the Mr Linky form below! I will draw a winner and announce them on October 14th.
We hope you’ve enjoyed the hop and make sure you head on over to Zoe’s personal blog and wish her a Happy Birthday! Grab the badge above and display iton your sidebar to spread the word about Zoe’s Birthday and Blog Hop! Until then, happy stamping!
