The Crafters Cafe "I GOT THE BLUES" Blog Hop

Happy Friday

This fortnight over at The Crafters Cafe, we are trying to brush away those January blues. All the festivities of Christmas and the New Year are now a distant memory, some of us are in the grip of a cold dark winter and some of us are in the grip of phenomenal heat waves, so the DT have decided to put a smile on some faces with a blog hop and some extra prizes.

1st prize Gina K stamp set Spoon me 
2nd prize Gina K Stamp set You make me smile
3rd prize Stampendous - Vintage Ladies
4th prize Stampendous - Charmed Art

These are extra prizes separate to the usual challenge, that is running along side as normal.

To be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is visit each blog on the hop and leave a comment that must say

"January Blues"

The commenting prizes will be shipped worldwide, so everyone can enter.

Blog list for the hop is at the end of this post, and good luck

Now for the regular challenge
The theme this time is For a Male

 We have 2 lovely sponsors

My card uses the Angie's image - Baby Eating

I am afraid I am unable to credit the sentiment to anyone, it has been in my files for a long time, long before I kept them in better order, and I apologise for this.

I have coloured the sweet image with Copic markers and used SB Standard Circles Large and Large Pinking Circles to mat and layer both the image and sentiment.
The number is from SB Victorian Numbers. 
The DP is by Trimcraft and is their 8x8 paper stack - Bella & Boo. I wanted to get away from the traditional blue for a boy and this paper stack was just so sweet.

So Now for the Blog Hop List
Don't forget you must visit each blog and leave the comment
"January Blues"
To be in with a chance to win one of the gorgeous stamp sets listed above
