Scrapbook Boutique May Challenge and Blog Hop

Hey there - Welcome to the Scrapbook Boutique May Blog Hop and Challenge. 

There are two fun things for you to do -  the Blog Hop and the Challenge - 

  • Leave a comment at each DT girl's blog and then finish with a comment on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog itself where the random winner will be drawn.

You have one week....the hop closes midday May 17 and the winner will be announced on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog soon after. Good Luck!

(Head back to the SB Blog if you lose your way - you'll find the complete Blog Hop list....hop and challenge open to Australian and New Zealand residents only.)

Next - pull out your craft supplies and get busy with this month's Inspiration Challenge - the May theme is PINK ...


I have created a Mother's Day card for my Mother-in-Law...using Spellbinders Flowers Whisper Die Set...

Challenge Card main

It's weeks since I've created so I felt a bit rusty but it was also fabulous to dabble again in my new craft room.

You see, we moved house a fortnight ago which as you will know is big enough and it takes time to get everything sorted and just as we were getting on top of that our sweet little 12 year old dog ran away and 5 days later we still do not know where she is. We are devastated as those of you who are pet lovers can well imagine.

So, my apologies for things being so quiet on my blog and YouTube Channel - hopefully, card making will one day soon give me the joy it once did as I can certainly use some of that in my life at the moment.

Here's a close up of my card...
