Crafty Hos Hop!

Good morning and welcome to the Crafty Ho's Challenge Blog Hop! After holding these challenges for over a year, we unfortunately have decided to close down the Crafty Ho's Challenge Blog, but we are Hos, and Hos love to party! So, we are going to party today with a big Ho Hop and a handful of sponsor giveaways! If you arrived here from Sandye's Blog, then you are in the right place if not head on over to the Crafty Ho's Challenge Blog so you don't miss out on any of the fun!

This week our challenge theme is 'Anything Goes' or the recipe of: Ribbon, 2 images, and 3 layers! We want you to enjoy this challenge and maybe get the chance to win a fabulous prize!

For my card today I used this adorable image from Whimsy and Stars Studio called Baby's Teddy! I simply love this sweet and cuddly image and I thought that it would make the perfect warm card. These Hos are some of my closest friends and while I am saddened about the end of this challenge, they are still like that teddy that is always near by when I need them! I love you gals!

Now here is the full hop list, so you don't miss one ounce of Ho fun!

What a bummer the Ho's are no more!!
The DT is SO talented and it's one of my favorite "follows", just for inspiration, even when I didn't enter the challenges! (and I did enter a few times, but never won...)

I love this card style and your papers are awesome!

Very nice last hurrah!
