Tammylee  You are here! 

This is a fun quick blog hop!
Hope you enjoy!


  1. Hi Tammylee! These are gorgeous!! What a fun image too! TFS and it's been a fun hop!

  2. Beautiful card! I love the utee with the image. The three difference: 1- the blue dot of liquid pearls in each of the 2 places you have them. 2- you have a beaded pin around the flower and none on the other. 3- the brad in the center of the flower is either a different color (blue). Or has a blue colored spot made from something on it.

  3. Beautiful cards, I love looking for the differences games! Looks like the differences are the 4th blue dot of liquid pearls, the blue spot in the center of the 1 flower and the stick pin added to 1 of the flowers. Looks like I am not the first to find it though, lol. Thanks for making the hop fun!

    1. Everyone that gets all the correct differences will be in the extra drawing on my blog.

  4. Great cards. Fun game. Very well done!

  5. Card #1 - 3 pink and a blue brad, pin and the flower has a little blue brad (i think it's a brad?) in the middle


  6. Let me try again...
    Great idea to have a game to tell the differences between two cards, it makes one look carefully at all the lovely details:)
    . left card has one more pearl on the top and bottom and that pearl is a different color
    .Left card has an added hat pin
    . the centers of the flowers are different

    What a great blog hop! It was great to see how differently chalk can be used. I am anxious to see your first challenge:) Good luck to all of you. Hugs

  13. Adorable!! Love that sweet image!!

    Thank you very much for joining us this week at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog!


  14. I love your spot the difference game. I found myself very absorbed at looking very closely at each card and intrigued at the technique you had used on one image and I could not decide whether you had cut it up and glued it back together or used a particularly aggressive distressing technique. It makes a very interesting card.

    Thank you for sharing your work with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.


  15. A fabulous card, great use of the technique, or image is adorable and a wonderful colour scheme.
