CLP Birthday Blog Hop - Yippee!!!

It's finally here, CLP's first Blog Hop.
I'm so excited about this hop and even more excited to be in it with my amazing fellow Designers.
Not only do they make beautiful and inspiring projects, they are an amazing group of girls around...not to mention the sweetest!
Bonnie, Dunja, Elise, Eulanda, Hege, Lori, Maria, Randi, Stephanne, Tanja, and Yvonne...
THANK YOU for being a part of this team, I look forward to a wonderful year of crafting with you all.

Our cards were made following the CLP May's Sketch for this hop
There is a hidden $30 Gurlee Girl Craft Store gift voucher along this hop.
For your best chance at winning, make sure to leave a comment on each blog.
You will be delighted with all the wonderful cards the DT made with this sketch.

Also, our May sponsor is Belles 'n Whistles.
If you would like a chance to win a BnW stamp, please enter CLP-36 challenge.
Here is the Sketch for us to play with...

On my card, I have used "Fairy Wishes"...my favorite from this newest collection from Belles 'n Whistles.
She is just the cutest thing, I want to ink-her- up again!
The layout and position of this sketch works for me, so I worked on it as-is.

Belles 'n Whistles Stamp: Fairy Wishes
Coloring Medium: Distress Inks& Watercolors
Paper: K&Company

I'm the last on the hop, I hope you've enjoyed the hop.
Thank you for taking part, and Good Luck.
Please join us with your take on this sketch, we'd love to see you your take!
