Welcome to the 1st Funky Fairy's Blog Hop to celebrate the merging of the Shop & Challenge Design Teams.

We thought that we had to mark this occasion & celebrate with a "Funky Fairy" party . . . or a blog hop in this instance! Now the theme this week over on the Challenge Blog is "Case It". This simply means that we have been looking at each others fab projects and choosing one to "CASE" (case is an acronym for Copy And Share Everything) so you create a project using someone else's work as your inspiration but do not need to copy it exactly.

Well as you can imagine all the DT members got involved & have pulled "a blinder" this week and if you follow the blog hop you will see all their brilliant projects. Please do leave a comment on every blog you visit to be eligible for the fab prize being offered by Funky Fairy's Papercrafts (via the Inspiration Blog) . . . we will check you know! Here is my project . . .


Now you have just left Ria's blog & already got her letter but please don't forget to collect my letter which is " G ". At this point you should have FIVE letters. The next blog you need to pop over & visit is Anne. If you have not collected all the previous letters, please pop back to the beginning of our blog hop over on the Inspiration Blog.

I cased the card by Lulu for THIS challenge. I loved the colors and the ribbons with the centerpiece. I tried to use the brown and pinks she used. I chose to use papers from the Cupcake Crazy kit, and an image I colored from the same kit. (I colored with copics and "iced" with some stickles.) I didn't have the awesome curlicue thing that Lou used, so I did my sentiment differently and added two hearts (though hers were hanging). I'm afraid my card is a poor CASE, but it turned out ok.
Anyhow, do the hoppy thing, do the shoppy thing, and have a lovely day.
(ps - I'm going to attempt to turn on comment moderation... for hop purposes)
