Aud Sentiments Challenge #26 and Birthday Blog Hop


Warning!!!! Long post, you may want to get a cup of tea/coffee and get yourself comfortable for this one!!
We have a lot of exciting things for you during this challenge! It is our 1 year anniversary and we are going to celebrate all during this challenge and we are having a DT call - check out the Aud Sentiments for all the details.

OK, now onto the challenge... We are so lucky to have Sassy Cheryls as our sponsor this week!

She has the most adorable images. If you haven't been to her store you should pop over and take a look.
Here is a little bit about them...
"Hi everyone! Sassy Cheryl here and I’m so happy to be sponsoring the Aud Sentiments challenge this week. I have been creating graphics and have licensed my work to companies such as Kohl's, Hobby Lobby and Shopko, among others, for over six years. I started creating digital images about ten ago. I absolutely LOVE to draw and always carry a small sketchbook for those times when a bit of inspiration hits. It's been a lifelong dream to become a working artist, and besides deadlines, I LOVE everything about what I do! It really helps that I have a very supportive husband and son (they also can be my biggest critics!) Through the digis I create, I’ve met so many wonderful, talented ladies. The projects they make using my images makes it all worth it. ‘Can’t wait to see what you will create with my Sassy images. " "

The theme for this challenge is ANYTHING GOES! This is perfect for all you trying out for the team to really show us what you love to make!
Here is my card using Bunny Chit Chat from our sponsor

(Just click on the image for a larger version)
Here is a closup of the button - very fiddly but hope you like it!


I am entering this card in the following challenges:-

Fussy and Fancy Friday"> - Card for a girl,

Totally Stampalicious - Anything Goes,

Digital Tuesday - Little women,

Creative Belli - Eggs or bunnies (old stash is the fibre in my button), and,

Now for some more fun......
