**Blog Candy** & Blog Hop - Crafty Gals Corner Challenge - Maiden Voyage :)

OOooooo-weeeeeee.... :) This is some exciting times... New challenge blog... First challenge... Some great sponsors... All happening at Crafty Gals Corner Challenge Blog!!! Check it out...

Plus, a blog hop and some lovely little candy right here too!!

The sponsor of this image is All Dressed Up and the theme for this week with us at Crafty Gals Corner is Anything Goes, to break us in gently, hehe :)


Here is my inspiration piece for the week:

This image can be found on Etsy here

I went for a Gorjuss-esq style background using a paper from My Mind's Eye 6x6 book, and took the words from this image and styled them in an art journal fashion on the card. I love art journal style!!

I coloured the girl and the dog with Copics. This was the first time I have ever coloured an animal too, so I kept it simple by going white - I think ;)

Our wonderful sponsors and prizes this week:

Prize: 4 digital images

AND

 Prize: 2 digital images


Please pop across and see what the other Design Team Members have done, we have some great talent in the team and they are a very friendly bunch. To make this meet and greet easier we're incorporating a blog hop, so please go and say 'hi' to my teamies who are also offering candy!!

Agnieszka
Becca Mixed Media Prize Pack

Judy
Kathryn 
Lena Blog Candy Offer
Lisa $30 Gift Certificate to Pretty Pink Posh shop

Lynne

Samantha Variety of embossing folders, ribbon and embellishments

Also, as promised... I have candeeeee*.... :)


*Although yours will look a little (or a lot) different to this ;)

I have been very blessed in my first ten months of blogging, so I would like to give something back to the crafting community!! Kind of as a way of saying thank you but also to celebrate being on my first Design Team - woo hoo (can ya tell I'm happy - I'll come down soon) ;)

I am going to be a little different with my approach to candy as I would like to potentially offer this prize draw chance to everyone, wherever they are in the world.

So... it is going to be for a voucher for a crafty place of your choice!! It will be for the equivalent to £20!! So if you are in America it will be the equivalent in dollars, or Euros for Europe, etc...

I figured doing it this way, you get more bang for your buck as by the time I would have paid postage costs, in all it would cost me about £20 and that's just the UK nowadays, so the prize would have to be a lot smaller in value. This way you can get something you want or need, from the company of your choice, provided they do electronic vouchers/gift certificates. Deadline is two weeks time from the date of this post (2015) :) The winner will be randomly selected.

All you have to do for a chance to win is become a follower, easy! I'd also love it if you could put the sweetie picture in your side bar too and link back to here, but this isn't a requirement. So please tell your friends, wherever they may live in the world about these little gems of goodness that teamies and myself are offering.


Spread the word, we gals at Crafty Gals Corner have gone candy-crazy!! And have a lovely, lovely day :)

Warm Hugs
Georgie xx
