1st hAnglar Challenge & Blog Candy!!!!


Hi everyone and welcome to our very first hAnglar Challenge!
Yes the wait is over today starts the first hAnglar challenge on our 'lovely hAnglar only' challenge blog! Woohooo! I'm so excited! And because this is a reason to celebrate I'm offering some blog candy today as well :-)  But it's a candy with a little twist ;-). But before I go on with my candy here is the theme of our first hAnglar challenge: 

Blog Colors  
pink & green

That means we want you to create your card/project using the colors of our blog which are pink and green. And remember this is a hAnglar only challenge, therefore only hAnglar images are eligible! For all the challenge rules, details of our first challenge and to see the wonderful inspirational creations of my DT sisters please click HERE.

I decided to make a bookmark for our first challenge. I used this little hAnglar cutie which is called ' Flicka med flätor'. I colored her using my Copics. For decorating I used some Prima flowers, a ladybug charm, ribbon, rhinestones and lots of glitter. For glittering I used my brand new (arrived today woohoo, Susana you rock ;-) ) Viva Glitter Liner, Holo Iridescent which I got from SCACD. Dies used are from Spellbinders and Marianne Design.


Blog Candy

Lets talk Candy ;-) I got a few things to celebrate with my candy. Almost 300 followers-woohooo, you are awesome!-, close to 40.000 hits-wow can't believe it :-)- and of course our new 'lovely hAnglar only' challenbge blog! :-) And here it comes, that's what's up for grabs:

  • DP from Prima's 'The Second Wind' collection - 14 different designs, 4 of each, size 6x6
  • 16 A2 sized patterned cards incl. envelope, 8 different designs
  • 2 bookmarks plus cord
  • 1 spool Offray ribbon 'leaf green', satin
  • 1 spool Offray lace, white
  • 3 Stickles - Crystal, Burgundy, Starry Night
  • 1 House Mouse Stamp (wood mounted) 'Surprise Party'
  • 3 matching flower stamps from Outline Rubberstamps (wood mounted), different sizes
  • 1 cardboard mini booklet 'Daisy' from Creative Imaginations
  • 1 box with 12 Faber Castell Polychromos pencils plus 3 different sized blending stumps
  • 5 sheets of crocodile paper (various colors)
  • 2 sheets golden outline stickers from Starform (sealife and beach themes)
  • Mix of various flowers
  • Mix of embellies (e.g. rhinestones, brads, buttons etc.)
  • a little surprise :-D
And if you like what I'm offering then I would be very delighted if you enter my candy! And in order to be eligible you have to do a few things ;-) Not much just a few little rules.
