Happy Birthday Sir Stampalot!


Good Morning ,crafters! Let me tell you all about a rather special month at Stampalot Challenge. It might be April Fools day,  the surprises are all good ones and you are going to be spoilt rotten this month. There are a total of fourteen prizes to be won because it's our Second Birthday, so the theme this month is:

Happy Birthday
You can make anything you want as long as it's to celebrate a Birthday and this is the prize from Sir Stampalot for this months challenge winner:

But it does not stop there, as we are having a Blog Hop and what great prizes Sir Stampalot are offering in addition the the challenge prize above, one at each of the DT's blogs and another for the winner of the correct blog hop answer. I know lots of you are familiar with what you need to do, but as we are seeing so many new crafters joining our challenge, I had better briefly explain:
 Visit eAch of the DT's blogs listed below And collect the letter - mine should be fAirly obvious!
LeAve eAch one A comment to be sure you Are in the drAw for the prizes on eAch of the DT's blogs
Assemble those letters into two words - both hAve four letters and send your Answers to brenda@ibas.co.uk by noon GMT on 30th April
All correct answers will go into the draw for this super prize of HERO ARTS goodies
Here's the list of names you need to follow, each one will tell you where you should have arrived from and where you need to go next, and don't forget you need to leave a comment at each blog, otherwise you won't be in the draw for all those prizes.

Sally - That's me!
Pinky

To get here you should have come from the challenge blog, and your next port of call will be Pinky.
This is the prize you can win on my blog:

And there are yet more prizes, because as this is a special month for us, this month Top 3 challenge entrants will also receive a little prize rather like this which Brenda has put together...........

Now there was something else I had to remember...

Oh yes, my card!
The background paper is from Pink Petticoat, and the Honeysuckle stamp is from Lavinia, coloured with promarkers. The frame is a Waltzing Mouse stamp cut out with a Nestie and the pink border is a tonic studios punch. The sentiment is also a Waltzing Mouse stamp.
Anyway, I don't want you snoozing off so I'd better shut up. Don't forget to go and have a look at the DT's gorgeous samples on the Challenge Blog, where you will also find all the details of the challenge and blog hop, and I look forward to visiting you soon.
