oh to kiss frogs to find a Prince.....

Hi all.,

Now ladies don't be shy how many frogs did you have to kiss before you found a Prince? lol  I was inspired to make this card because of my love of Disney rather then by dating history (haha, I'm telling the truth)

Over at Try Stampin' or not we have a brand new challenge starting today.

Just follow the sketch and/or use the theme Emboss.

Here's the card I made.

Have fun

Hi all

I had so much fun today searching through over 1000 images over at Rick St Dennis's Zibbet shop.

The great thing about it is every time you look you see something new.

I wanted to make something girly and cute and that when I spotted Isabella Dance Recital

Hope you like her

Good Luck.

Morning everyone

Over at http://sparkleandglitterwithrick.blogspot.co.uk/ join Rick St Dennis and the team in part one of our progressive challenge.

Theme: Anything Goes

How does it work?

Team A is starting off this next Progressive Challenge and it's another "Anything Goes", as long you use an image from the vast collection that is available. TheZibbet shop has well over 1200 images now and the savings made by using this shop are passed onto you by Rick. If you prefer to use Etsy then that's your choice but the range is not nearly as extensive.
Mr Linky, as usual is on his own page - take a look up top - so no one will have to go searching through loads of posts and there's a whole month for you to dream up and create something. Those that enter this month will get the next month's compulsory image free. What are you waiting for?

Have fun and goodluck

Lynda xx
