Crafter's Companion blog hop

Good morning everyone. Here I am back safe and sound from my holiday in Washington DC. We had a lovely time there, great weather apart from the day we left when it poured with rain. It was so amazing to see the White House and the Lincoln Memorial IRL. There are some fabulous museums, most of which are free and a wonderful conservation zoo which is also free. We felt very privileged to see 2 Giant Pandas, the most endangered species in the world.

As my first post after my holiday I am very pleased to be part of the Crafter's Companion Blog Hop to Celebrate the Release of the SWALK 2 collection.

If you have landed here from Claire's blog then you are hopping in the right direction. If not then you need to pop over to Jacqui's blog to begin.

Our DT have had a great time creating with the New SWALK Collection from Crafter's Companion and to celebrate the launch of this stunning new collection on Friday 22nd October we have decided to give you a chance to see some Sneak Peeks and also have the chance of winning a fabulous prize:

A £50 GIFT VOUCHER TO BE SPENT ON THE CRAFTER'S COMPANION WEBSITE

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning this great prize is visit each blog in order and leave your link on Mr Linky on the Crafter's Companion News Views and Inspiration Blog which is your last stop on the HOP. Along the way you will notice that each Blog will give you a letter so make a note of these as they will make a word which we will ask you for if your number is drawn by Random.Org on Friday 22nd October . DO NOT TELL US WHAT THE WORD IS ON THE CC NEWS VIEWS AND INSPIRATION BLOG , WE WILL E-MAIL YOU FOR THE ANSWER IF YOUR MR LINKY NUMBER IS DRAWN.

I loved playing with these new stamps and CD which contains a great range of digi papers, borders, inserts, flowers and more. So this is a sneak peek of the new collection. I love this fun image of granny impersonating the famous Marilyn Monroe picture. I punched some flowers from the digi papers to keep the co-ordinated look. The DT were also lucky enough to be given some new card to use, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 216gsm, which works so well with Promarkers and Copics. It is available now from Crafter's Companion and costs just £3.99 for 20 sheets or 3 packs for £10. There are lots of special offers this week too whilst we are celebrating.

My letter is Y and your next port of call is the last one which is The Crafter's Companion News Views and Inspiration Blog

Thanks very much for hopping by and enjoy the rest of the inspiration. Check back tomorrow for another sneak peek.
