So onto this week and it is of course a special week for us as we are 4 today :)

So we are having a bit of  a celebration and we hope you’ll join us for a blog hop.

We have prizes along the way and there are also giveaways on some of the DT blogs as well so be sure to check out each and every blog peeps cos you never know what you might find :)))oooo.

and there is a ….

to spend in the shop.

I think you’ll have to agree that these are pretty darn fab prizes and you’ll find them somewhere on the DT blogs and hugest of thanks to all of our lovely sponsors.

Before we get to the cards we have to introduce our new GDT for October and they are Andie and Annette. Welcome girlies and we hope you enjoy your stay with us :)

So without further ado, let’s check out what the PTW crew did this week.

Annette GDT


Andie – GDT

So that’s what we did and now it’s over to you, and if you get a sec, don’t forget if you get a sec to check out our individual blogs and see what else we have been up to.

As always, could we ask a huge favour peeps please.

Could you help to make our job at leaving comments easier by turning off comment verification and enabling comment moderation instead please pretty please xxxx. It’s ever so easy to do – see our sidebar – and you won’t get spam comments as you can easily reject the comments that you don't want to appear. And also, can we remind you nicely that’s it’s fine to combine challenges but please, no back linking. We hope you understand that it’s only fair to those who make a new card xxx

And also, can I just give you a nice gentle reminder to ask if you could make sure that you link your card and not your blog when using good old Mr Linky please my lovelies. It makes life so much easier for our DT if they don’t have to go searching for your cards.

Thanks ever so muchly – we really do appreciate it xxx

And now on with the hop.

From here you need to go to Angie’s Blog  so have fun and keep looking our for the prizes and giveaways :) If you get lost, the order of the hop is -

Annette - GDT
Andrea - GDT

Hugs from all of us to all of you xxx
