Ching-Chou Kuik Birthday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Today is Ching-Chou Kuik's birthday and as a birthday tribute the design team have decided to have a Blog Hop in her honour. I am lucky enough to be on the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog Design Team and get to work with her amazing images.

To take part in the Blog Hop you need to visit the blogs in the list below and you will see somewhere in the post a letter/letters of the alphabet, which you need to make a note of. When you arrive at the end of the Blog Hop at the Challenge Blog, you need to work out what words the letters you have collected make and write a message in the comments box. Don’t forget to leave a message on each blog you visit as there will be some extra prizes along the way.

The order for the Blog Hop is as follows:

Ann-Marie
Bonnie
Dianne
Kym
Linda
Lozzy
Samantha
Sylvia
Vannessa
Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog.

You should have arrived at my blog from Sylvia's blog, but if you haven't, you can use the list above to go back to Ann-Marie's blog to start the blog hop from the beginning.

Here is the card that I have made to celebrate Ching-Chou Kuik’s birthday using the gorgeous Red Poppies. I went with a vintage-ish/country-ish style for this one and love how it came out. 


Now that you have visited my blog, the next blog for you to visit is the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge Blog. The special letter that you will collect from my blog is the letter:
