This is a sticky, please scroll down for latest post

Welcome to our first every By The Cute and Girly blog hop!! It's our 2nd birthday and we are celebrating in style with a special challenge and blog hop!
As well as loads of prizes on the challenge blog, each design team member also has a prize on their blog from their featured sponsor, so lots of chances to win some great prizes!! :)

If you have came from TAMMYS blog, then you are on the right track, if not, you need to start at Lora's blog.

Ok so here's what you have to do for a chance to win these prizes-

1. Enter the challenge at By The Cute and Girly as you normally would. The theme this month is "Anything Goes" and remember our challenge is for any type of crafts from papercrafts to baking, so you really can enter with anything you like. This month we are limiting the entries to 1 per person since it's anything goes.
2. Do the hop, leave a comment on each of the dt blogs for a chance to win the prize on their blog.
3. Each design team member has a letter of the alphabet on their blog that you need to collect. When you are finished the hop and have collected all the letters, email Lora with the word you have made (you will find her email address and instructions on the challenge blog). Please DO NOT leave a comment with the word you have made, you must email Lora with it.
4. HAVE FUN!! :)

My sponsor is Spesch Designer Stamps and they have gave me $15 of Digi Stamps to give away to one lucky winner.
Leave a comment on this post for a chance to win.
My project today uses Forest Elf from Spesch Designer Stamps

Coloured with Promarkers

I have made three samples  using her, which I will show throughout the next three weeks. This one I have made her a Christmas Forest Elf.

Papers - Basic Grey "Jovial"
TH Flourish
Marianne Designs Pionsettia Die
Roses, Velvet Lace, Pearls from stash

The letter you need from me is B, you now have all your letters, rearrange them to make your word, pop over to our blog   By The Cute And Girly. Leave a comment and then email Lora with your answer. Good Luck everyone

Here's a list of the hop order in case you get lost along the way.
