Hop along with me!

For all other new posts, please scroll down :)

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to our first every By The Cute and Girly blog hop!! It's our 2nd birthday and we are celebrating in style with a special challenge and blog hop!

As well as loads of prizes on the challenge blog, each design team member also has a prize on their blog from their featured sponsor, so lots of chances to win some great prizes!! :)If you have came from Geraldine`s blog, then you are on the right track, if not, you need to start at Lora's blog. Ok so here's what you have to do for a chance to win these prizes-

1. Enter the challenge at By The Cute and Girly as you normally would. The theme this month is "Anything Goes" and remember our challenge is for any type of crafts from paper crafts to baking, so you really can enter with anything you like.

This month we are limiting the entries to 1 per person since it's anything goes.

2. Do the hop, leave a comment on each of the dt blogs for a chance to win the prize on their blog.
3. Each design team member has a letter of the alphabet on their blog that you need to collect. When you are finished the hop and have collected all the letters, email Lora with the word you have made (you will find her email address and instructions on the challenge blog). Please DO NOT leave a comment with the word you have made, you must email Lora with it.

4. HAVE FUN!! :)My sponsor is Whimsey Stamps

and they have gave me 5 (!) Digital stamps ! to give away to one lucky winner.

Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win.My project today uses Whimsy Hippo from Whimsy Stamps

You all know that I have a thing about Hippos since last Xmas when my DD fell inlove with `I want a hippopotamus for Christmas ` song that we found on `you tube`. So the second I saw the stamp I knew I had to have it! lol
The card was given a few hours after it was made to my DH niece for her birthday with a small body shop gift.
I miss it already! hee hee JK

The letter you need from me is I and the next stop on the hop is Lisa

Here's a list of the hop order in case you get lost along the way.








Challenge Blog- You will find the email address here that you need to send the word you have made to, and of course you have to link your entry here too :)

Thank you for playing with us this month!
Looking forward to see your projects!

Tag Your It!

Hello everyone!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend:)
I`m trying to schedule this post to be published when we are out tomorrow.
As you all know DD has a swimming lesson in the morning (She passed her stage 2 ducklings and will be starting a stage 3! whoop whoop! She swims so well now I am actually amazed how a 4yld dives to get her diving sticks and swims on her front and back with no fear! lol I`m really proud of her! When we met the Israeli Olympic tem she said she wanted to be an Olympic swimer, I think I can say that she might have a point there! lol).

I am hosting the new challenge on PAM over at the `Outlawz` this week and, I choose `Tag Your It`. Making tags is such a fun thing to do, there are no rules you just flow with your materials!
So this week, I am not at work, my craft room is really really tidy! (And that, my friends, is really really unusual! lol) So I took my time and made a new paper bag mini album with lots and lots of tags!

This week was also the week Gilad Shalit was freed from captivity in the Gaza strip by Hamas. He had been there for long 5 and a half years and to see him free was very emotional for me and for my country. His family had fought for his release every single day and it was just amazing to be able to see it happening!

I used mariposa papers, because they had the birds and butterflies as a theme and all I had in my head was `Freedom` and that what comes to my mind thinking of being free :)

I have to worn you it is a photo heavy post...

Can`t wait to see what you guys will come up with!
Thank you for stopping by!

Halloween at the `Outlawz`

Hello Everyone!
Hope you are having a fantastic Saturday! I scheduled this post to go while we are at DD swimming lesson, fingers crossed that the new editor is doing as it is told! lol

So this week over at PAM Challenge, - Halloween party favours or decorations
Surprisingly, I found some spare time today and made a new card. While I was making it, I had intended to give it to my DH as his birthday is on Halloween. However he was in, and when he saw the card, he asked who was it for! lol so I will be making him a new one next week (Providing I will find time of course).

I used my Tilda bat stamp and really enjoyed colouring it with my pro markers.Oh and I used my spider web embossing folder and run over it with a staz on ink pad. with the left over purple card stock I had made the tag that is tucked inside the black doily.

I need to find a tutorial on  how to make a box for this card as it a bit heavy and won`t fit in a standard envelope.


please join us this week, we would love to see what you guys will come up with. We know you all like winning craft goodies, and this week isn`t any different come over and check out all the prizes!

Thank you for stopping by!
