A Dressy blog hop

Hello lovely people,

Our first All Dressed Up challenge & release of 2014 is here...and what a fantastic release it is. 

Both our teams have joined together for this Challenge/Release, and we are also having a blog hop...more details of this below! 

We have four new releases this month, all of which can be found over on the store 
Our theme for the the challenge is "Anything Goes". A nice and easy theme to start the new year with. 
Here is my design team card for this challenge; 

I have used 'Little Bookworm' which you will find  here.  I took my cue from the gorgeous retro hat she is wearing and used vintage DP and colour palette.  Isn't she so cute?!

I also learnt to tie a beautiful double bow; something I have been meaning to do for a while.  I know some of you already have this skill but if not, I checked out a few different tutorials and found the video tutorial here the easiest to follow and it made the nicest bow :-)

Card recipe;

DP: Vintage Autumn Basics - Maja Designs

Now as I said earlier we are also having a blog hop for this challenge, two lucky winners will receive 2 images of their choice from the store, in order to be in with a chance of winning you have to visit every blog on the hop list and leave a comment by the date shown below. Two winners will be picked at Random by two of the Dressy Girls on Wednesday 22nd January . We know we have quite a few Dressy girls, so we have spread the hop over a week to give you all plenty of time to hop along.

Here is the hopping list so you don't get lost along the way;

Good luck on the hop and make sure you check out the blog for the winners & all the challenge details.
