Challenge #34: HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Hi Chicks

Are you all on vacation? Enjoy!

We are ready for another challenge with the theme


Our wonderful sponsor is Wendy from All Dressed UP (ADU)
Wendy draws the most wonderful images of all times and we all just loooove playing with them. In fact, I am a bit an addict *lol*! Thank you Wendy for sponsoring us again! Very much appreciated.

Here you can read a little something about the desinger, Wendy:

Hi, I am Wendy Burns and 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 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 Marilyn and Tracy 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.

oookay and now join in the fun! The theme is so easy, everyone needs a birthday card once in a while ;)

xoxo, Ally and the Inky chicks
