New Little Claire Challenge and Blog Hop

Great news this week on the Little Claire blog - we've got a challenge for you and a blog hop too!!

For our challenge we've got an 'open theme' so plenty of scope for everyone to get creative.  And here's the prize on offer for the winner of the challenge:

The winner receive two sets of stamps and a die cut sheet.

And the prize for the winner of the blog hop is:

The prize includes stamps, die cut sheets and ribbons.

To enter our challenge, all you need to do is make a card and leave a link in the normal way on the challenge blog.  If you also want to enter the blog hop, visit all of the Design Team members' blogs and look for the letter highlighted in their posts.  Collect all the letters (8 in total) and rearrange them to form the name of a popular Little Claire stamp.  Once you've got the name, e-mail your answer to: and make sure you put 'Blog Hop' as the title of your e-mail.

Both winners will be announced here in the July challenge post.

The letter that you need to take part in the blog hop is I and from here you need to go to Helen R's blog here.

If you lose your way at any time, this is the order for the blog hop:


For all the details about the challenge and to see the cards from the rest of the Design Team, have a look here.

For my card I've used one of my favourite Little Claire stamp sets the wonderful 'Oh Man' stamp set which you can find here on the Little Claire website.  I paper pieced the armchair on the image of the chair.

Here's another view of the card:
