Is it Spring?

The new challenge at THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE is {Spring inspired}. Think flowers, pastels, baby animals...

You're the Best!

Thanks for the Music!!

 Today I posted the very last challenge for A SONG IN YOUR HE{ART} challenge blog. I've had difficulty finding DT for it and have been busy with work as well.So I made the decision to close this blog down. Now, I do have 2 others that I'm running (for now, but sadly I'm losing a lot of sponsors due to the new EU laws that come into effect in January). They are {PIN}SPIRATIONAL and IF YOU GIVE A CRAFTER A COOKIE... .

The final challenge song is by ABBA.

The sponsor is Bugaboo.

I've used a Bugaboo digi on my card.
