It was my birthday last week and I had loads of lovely pressies from my family and friends - including some scrummy crafting goodies :)

Don't you just hate it when that happens?

How many times has it happened to you? You plan on making a set of cards, you print out the elements, you find coordinating embellishments THEN you cut your card wrong and you realise it's your LAST piece !!!
Aaaargh! Anyway, I think I got away with it - the colours seem to coordinate. What do you think?

New Challenge Blog at Little Claire's Designs

Over at Little Claire's Designs, there will be a new monthly challenge on their blog. The first challenge starts on Saturday 5th February and Little Claire is giving away some candy to celebrate!

All you need to do, for a chance to win the stamps and flowers in the pic, is add the photo and link to the candy in your sidebar and become a follower if you're not already. It would be great if you would also blog about our new challenges to help us get the word around, but it's not a requirement for the candy. Then just add a link to your blog below.

The winner will be announced on Saturday 5th February when we launch our first challenge.

Good luck everyone xx

I'm just loving these 3"x3" scalloped cards, they are so handy for little notelets. This card was made using black embossed cards stock; bow; gems (all from my stash) and the fabulous Simply Delightful download from Pink Petticoat.
I made it for someone who has greatly influenced my crafting over the years and who was kind enough to send me a gift recently. Hope she likes it :)

set of Thank You cards

So cute and sooo quick to make! I discovered the cutest set of Papermania 3x3 scalloped card blanks yesterday and they have come in so handy when making my Thank You cards. The stamp is a freebie from a magazine and I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink to stamp and watercolour the image.

I won woohooo!!!!

Over at Pink Petticoat, Liz very generously offered some candy and I'm so lucky that she picked me to win!

I'm over the moon because the candy is 3 sets of Pebbles Inc chalk pencils and they sound great for adding colour to detailed images :)

Take a look at Liz's blog

where you will find tons of inspiration for using her fabulous digital downloads.

Thanks Liz xx
