Quixotic Paperie's First Birthday Blog Hop!!!


Hello, I'm back again!!






Today is the 1st Anniversary of the Quixotic Paperie online store, and we're having a celebratory blog hop! I was cordially invited to the Blog Hop as a Friend of Quixotic Paperie, having been a past guest designer. Thank you Elaine for inviting me, I am very honoured to be considered a friend of your lovely Store.


If you're already following the hop, you should have hopped over here from the super talented Kim Piggott's Blog If not, then hop back to the beginning at the Quixotic Paperie Store Blog. You won't want to miss a stop, as in addition to lots of fantastic inspiration, there are some prizes on offer (full details on the Quixotic Paperie Blog).

Quixotic Paperie was started on June 1st 2009 by Elaine Hughes. Having been an avid crafter (and craft shopper!) for a number of years, Elaine wanted to share her passion and see where it might take her - so, Quixotic Paperie was born! Since then, the store has grown, and now stocks a fabulous range of rubber stamps from around the world: The Greeting Farm, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, SCACD Stamps, Paper Makeup Stamps, Belles 'n Whistles, the Mo Manning for Stamping Bella range, Stempelglede and more! In addition, the store carries a large range of charms and embellishments, and a host of gorgeous papers for all your crafty projects! If Elaine loves it, you will probably find it at Quixotic Paperie!

In November 2009 the Quixotic Challenges blog was started, where you can find weekly inspiration from the wonderful Quixotic Paperie Design Team, and join in for the chance to win a monthly prize.

It has been a fabulous and wonderfully crafty year and here's to another one and hopefully many more to follow!







For today's occasion, I decided to use this digi stamp from Mo Manning's lovely Store. Both me and Elaine are DT members in Mo's Dream Team, and Elaine is one of the lucky girls that has Mo Manning's gorgeous and whimsical images in her Store as stamps. You can purchase this cute stamp in Quixotic Paperie HERE





It is quite a wanted image. In fact I am noticing that it is already Sold out!!! But if you drop a line to Elaine, she will let you know when this stamp will be available again at her Store.







I coloured my image with Copics, and added a gorgeous sentiment, that came with its frame. I added some brads, flowers and tha raffia lace ribbon that can be found also in Quixotic Paperie, here. I based my card on the sketch found at Fab 'n Funky Challenge blog.


I finally added a couple of self adhesive pearls, and finished by decorating the inside. I hope you like it, and let me know what you think of this cutie-pie :)








Thank you for joining us on the hop! Your next stop is at the fantastic Emma Lockley's blog. I'm sure you will find something fantastic there waiting for you, as you have found, and will be finding at all the Quixotic DT and friends blgs today. Have fun, and smile!!


Copics used.
