A birthday hop

Hello lovely people,

We have a new challenge at All Dressed Up combined with a special surprise birthday blog hop!
Today is the very talented Wendy’s birthday; for those who don’t know Wendy is the owner and artist behind All Dressed Up.
All the team would like to wish Wendy a very happy birthday and thank her for her amazing images, and for everything she does.
We normally have our new challenge on the 15th, but as today is Wendy’s birthday we wanted to do a surprise birthday blog hop, along with our challenge.

Firstly the challenge, where the theme is 'Anything Goes' as long as it features one of our images or digital papers. Here is my card for the challenge;

This was a card that just came together so easily; it helps when you have such gorgeous artwork to play with!

Card recipe;

This is such an easy theme and we cannot wait to see all your fantastic entries, the winner will receive 3 images of their choice from the Store :-)

Onto the blog hop and below is a list of the Dressy Girls for you to hop around….we have a very big team here so you have until  1stJuly midnight GMT to hop round them all.
At the end of the hop two random Dressy Girls will pick someone who has visited and commented on their hop card to receive 2 images of their choice from the Store.

Happy hopping!

Kat (you are here!)
The challenge and hop will run until Midnight GMT 1st July and the winners of the hop and challenge will be announced on 3rd July on the All Dressed Up blog.
