A Challenge and a blog hop to celebrate the new ADU release!

The blog hop is now closed, but the challenge goes on until 1st Feb! 

Our first All Dressed Up challenge and release of 2014 is here...and what a fantastic release it is. 
Both our teams have joined together for this Challenge/Release, and we are also having a blog hop ! 
We have four new releases this month, all of which can be found over on the store.
Our theme for the the challenge is "Anything Goes". A nice and easy theme to start the new year with.

OK! If you arrived here from MARY'S amazing blog you're on the right track.
 If you just dropped by, thank you, it's lovely to 'see' you.
If you want to join in the hop, might I suggest kicking things off at the beginning,
at the All Dressed Up blog.
Here's my sample card.
 Isn't she just adorable!
She's called 'Little bookworm' and you can find her HERE.
She's one of the four new images in the new release by the one and only Wendy Burns. 
She's one amazing illustrator (and a lovely lady too).
The challenge will run until 1st February and the winner will receive 3 images of their choice from the store
Please make sure you stop by the blog to check out the rest of the talented Dressy Girls creations and to get all the details for the challenges..

Just for fun, I made another card this time with 'Love To Shop'.
 Love these little ladies. Use one, two or all three images. The choice is yours!
The paper is from the Autumn collection also available in the ADU SHOP.

Here are all four new images....

 to give you all plenty of time to hop along. 
Here is the hopping list to help you keep track..
