Welcome to the Carnival

Good morning everyone and welcome to the hugest biggest blog hop to celebrate a wonderful range of cordinating digi stamps...heres the hop info
Clowns, Fairy floss, sticky fingers, squeals of delight and of course complaints of sore feet near the end of the day... Where are we?
THE CARNIVAL!!
Hopefully you have just hopped on over from DEBBIE but If you just popped on by to say hello and want to join us on the super carnival hop then you’ll want to go to JAK'S to start at the beginning
Zoe from Make it Crafty and Mo from Mo’s Digital Pencil, came together to share the delight and fun of The Carnival. To celebrate - the two fabulously talented teams have come together for a massive blog hop to offer you plenty of inspiration when playing with these images.
Along the way you will find balloons with a letter in them. Write down the letters as you go because at the very end we want you to guess what the saying is!
There will be THREE grand prizes randomly drawn from the correct answers PLUS there will be hidden prizes along the way so make sure you leave some love as you hop along!
Now we know this is a super big hop, but we wanted to make sure you would get LOTS of inspiration! The hop will be open until the 28thApril so you will have plenty of time to come back each day with a cuppa to soak it all up! (Just don’t lose the letters you have been collecting!)...heres my N
We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors, Mo’s Digital Pencil, Make it Crafty, Stamping Bella and Quixotic Paperie for providing the fabulous prizes for this grand carnival hop!
I used the amazing Jojo for my card and teamed her up with Fair Carousel, how perfect do these go together, they are coloured with distress inks, the amazingly coloured paper are from Echo Park and I bought them from Crafters & Co, who now have an online shop, they are a mixture of A Walk in the Park collection Picnic Fun and Tree Tops and Springtime Collection Seasonal Stripe, lush arent they...I finished with some buttons and Thickers...I also covered a coffee cup with the same paper (I used the wrap as a template), thickers and buttons to make a popcorn cup... the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday...
dont forget to leave a comment for a possible chance at winning some hidden treasure
and then your next stop on the hop is KERTTU...Im off out shopping today so never know what I will buy, have a wonderful day everyone and enjoy the rest of the hop
Mina xxx



p.s. before you hop off I just wanted to tell you about a new charity digi from Mo's Digital Pencil...its only $1 and all the proceeds will be shared between the Make a Wish foundations in the US and UK...click on the image to buy
