ABC Blog Hop !!

Over on the ABC Challenge blog we're having a blog hop ! Check out the main blog for details of all of the fantastic prizes on offer ! If you've followed the right path you should have arrived here from Clare (Distressed Miss).

You have until 6PM (GMT) Monday 18 July to complete the blog hop. Comments must be left on all of the blogs and the winners will be chosen at random and announced on the ABC Challenge blog.

So onto the challenge for the blog hop which 'Y' is for Yesterday, we want to see your favourite images from the past.


I got myself in a muddle as I only read part of what I should be doing so thought the challenge was 'Y' is for Yesteryear !

I started by using the Polka Dot stamp by Stampin' Up which I stamped with black Archival ink onto card that I'd blended Antique Linen, Scattered Straw and Tea Dye DI over. The vertical panel was made using a Wendy Vecchi text stamp, the words are from a Dark Room Door set and I've stamped them with black Archival ink.


The main image and the text stamp are both from the same Dark Room Door set of stamps. The ribbon is from my stash as are the buttons.

So, the next place you need to 'hop' to is Hanna. Enjoy the rest of the hop and good luck !
