Mary Tapping

Clowns, Fairy floss, sticky fingers, squeals of delight and of course complaints of sore feet near the end of the day... Where are we? THE CARNIVAL!! Welcome to Mo & Zo's Super Carnival Blog Hop!!

You should have arrived here from ZOE's,
but if you didn't you can start at JAK's where this incredible Carnival hop begins!

My card combines Mo's Mary Tapping with Zoe's Uni-Cycle which apparently were meant for each other unbeknownst the two! ;D Check it out...


Earlier this week, I also made a card using James at the Carnival with the Candy Cart. Click on the sneak peek picture below to see all the details for even more inspiration - that card was made with everything but the kitchen sink!


Zoe from Make it Crafty and Mo from Mo’s Digital Pencil, came together to share the delight and fun of The Carnival. To celebrate - the two fabulously talented teams have come together for a massive blog hop to offer you plenty of inspiration when playing with these images.

Along the way you will find balloons with a letter in them so be sure to collect them for the end. There are three grand prizes for a correct answer plus lots of hidden prizes! Here's what the Uni-Cycle looks like in it's complete form:


Now we know this is a super big hop, but we wanted to make sure you would get LOTS of inspiration! The hop will be open until the 28th of April so you will have plenty of time to come back each day with a cuppa to soak it all up!


We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors, Mo’s Digital Pencil, Make it Crafty, Stamping Bella and Quixotic Paperie for providing the fabulous prizes for this grand carnival hop! Also, don't forget to drop by Mo’s Digital Pencil and pick up "Cotton Candy" which will be available for a limited time at it's reduced price! Blinkie details are on the sidebar.


I'd like to enter into the following challenges:
Scrap-Creations Challenge (digital stamps)
Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge #24 (anything goes)
Tip Top Tuesday Challenge #30 (open theme)
Joyful Stamper Inspire Me Friday #3 (anything goes)
Woodware USA Challenge #23 (diecuts/punches)

In case you have trouble finding my balloon, my letter is “L”. Don't forget to leave comments along the way. Just a few more details here about this card below then ...

your next hop is to ANGELA!

Did you know? Bristol board is an uncoated, machine-finished paperboard and is named after the city of Bristol in the southwest of England. Bristol board may be rated by the number of plies it contains or, in Europe, by its grammage of 220 to 250. It provides two working surfaces, front and back, which separates it from illustration board that only has a front working surface. The surface texture can vary for different applications, including a smooth plate finish and a medium vellum. Artists working with friction-based media, such as crayon, chalks, or charcoal would use a rougher texture. Smooth finishes are generally more suited to other types of media, such as inks.
[Bristol Board, Wikipedia.org]
Update: I made the Top 3 at Scrap-Creations for this challenge!
