Let's Party ~ Make It Crafty Turns One!

Happy Saturday everyone and thanks for popping by to visit.  The party's begun at Make it Crafty to celebrate turning one!  You don't want to miss all the fun and loads of prizes too!!!

Rather than a blog hop to celebrate, there's a SPECIAL CHALLENGE going on using Make it Crafty products!!  Hop on over to the Make it Colourful challenge blog for inspiration and to see all the amazing creations the fabulous DT have created for this event! PLUS find out all the details on how you can play along and WIN WIN WIN some outstanding prizes too!

My card falls into the category of Merge as many Make It Crafty images into one scene.  Yup, a first for me cause there's 8 digis and after duplicating a few, a grand total of 11!!!!   Zoe Extraordinaire kindly created the scene for me and then challenged me to get creative with my colouring!!!!  Wooohoo, talk about a challenge BUT I had so much fun.  This is for my hubby for our anniversary later this summer so shhhhhh.  I sure hope he loves it!!
The scene was printed on Make It Crafty Blending Card and then coloured with Copics.   The fabulous Filigree Border is of course a lasercut chipboard embellishment from Make It Crafty and was coloured with Moonlight Smooch ~ I loooooove these!!!  The card was kept very clean and simple so the scene remained the focus.  Here's a list of all the Make It Crafty digital images Zoe merged for me to create this scene:
Zoe, the owner of Make it Crafty has a super duper HUGE Candy give away – choc-a-block FULL of Make it Crafty goodies!! AND I have heard a whisper that she is planning on having random giveaways on her blog throughout the month of July! All you need to do is leave her some love as she’ll randomly be choosing people who have commented on her posts throughout the last year!!
For THREE DAYS ONLY until June 28th, you’ll be able to get 40% off Make it Crafty Digi Stamps when you enter the coupon code: CELEBRATE
We're celebrating with Quixotic Paperie who's turned TWO and they have something for you too!  Make sure to pop over HERE to enter your name for a chance at MORE Make it Crafty Goodies!!  Quixotic Paperie was the very first company to take on the Make It Crafty line of stamps, laser cut embellishments and now Make It Crafty blending card.

So I do hope you will celebrate with us this month and get into the Make it Crafty spirit of FUN!!
