I'd ask if you're ready for some inspiration yet, but wait... we've got yet another surprise for you!! We contacted one of Zoe's artists (S.H.) who also wanted to participate and drew us this gorgeous party girl for the occasion. Thank you!!
This is "Party Girl Zoe" and isn't she ca-ute!

I will be giving one lucky commenter this gorgeous Sweet Pea Stamp, No you dont have to be a follower, but of course love to have you if you like what you see!
So dont forget to leave me a comment before you go.
I have a couple of projects to show you, first of all I made this card using some inspiration from the Whiff of Joy Tutorial blog.
That naughty little elf has only gone and lit the fuse.
My next project was inspired by Jo at Ally Pally on sunday, where she reminded me of a technique 'caught in crystal' (which many moons ago we did with Klear floor Varnish - just a little bit sticky and smelly lol. Clear Laquer works soo much better. Thanks Jo.
I made my Caught in Crystal into a cracker and added one of the not soo naughty elves from the new Make It Crafty Christmas range.
Now you need to pop on over to Carole
We hope you've enjoyed the hop and make sure you head on over to Zoe's personal blog and wish her a Happy Birthday!
