D is for Die Cuts

Hi Everyone,
Its my turn (Samantha) to to host the next challenge.
I have had a little break from the challenge due to my Mum
being very poorly and passing away.
I want to say a HUGE thank you to my teamies for all their
support and keeping the challenge running so smoothly!
I am not feeling like any crafting yet but I wanted to say Hi and thank you to you all for playing along at ABC and making this challenge blog so brilliant!

 So to the challenge

The theme - D - Die Cuts
Nice and easy!



Our fabulous Sponsor


All Dressed Up.
Winner will receive two free digis of their choice
from Wendy’s Etsy shop

Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Bettina and Anne Lise along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies. The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis. We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.



The Girls have been super busy
Its a tricky time of year with some of the teamies in the grips
of deep winter, Bettina's little girls Birthday
and other teamies knee deep in work!

Here are the teamies creations
and a couple coming soon!
