1st prize Teje
2nd prize Susan
Well done ladies. I shall be in touch. Teje wins my special Olympic Badge and I decided to make a bag charm too for her ;0) She chose blue with sewing charms.
These are a couple I sold in the past so I can make something similar for her.
Susan was happy with any colours/theme but I am sure she will probably like something knitting related!
I am sorry there can only be 2 lucky winners but you know me there is always a future giveaway to look forward to.
I woke up to some winning news myself that I have won none less than a £25 gift voucher from the Lili of the Valley Idea to Inspire blog.....I was doing a happy dance when I saw my name there. As you know they were my first love when I started stamping and they still are. Their sweet images just rock. I recently bought just a few things from the new release and now I can really splash out. Terrific, thanks girls.
I also wanted to share in this post my recent delivery of Mini Moo cards. I am not sure if they are a UK only company? This is most certainly not a commissioned advert from me as sadly I can't share in the discount code, but with my recent delivery they are offering a 15% off by entering this code at the checkout.
to any 1st time customer. I was delighted with my newest order as I decided to try using photos of some of my cards as well as my jewellery, which is what I have done in the past. This is what arrived recently in the post.
Etsy Shop Orders.
These are some of my jewellery photos
I also decided for the 1st time to try one of their Sticker Books and I was so glad I did as they really are sweet and look fab stuck on the outside of my envelopes.
I think I am hooked...my next order will definitely include more of these sweet little stickers.
I can hardly believe that today is the first of September; how did that happen? I noticed yesterday morning when I got up for work that there is a definite autumnal feel in the air and the mornings (and evenings) are getting much darker. I therefore decided that I can start to safely use Christmas cards for some of my card challenges. As every card maker knows the time between now and Christmas gets so busy that it makes great sense to try to get some made now. I have actually sold several already in my Etsy shop so it is obviously not just me who likes to get organised ;0) Here is today's card. Of course after my winnings today from Lili of the Valley it just had to be one of their images.She is called Moonlight Wishes.
This was one of my favourite stamps from their release last year. I have used a sheet of paper from the gorgeous new paper pads they have released (I can now buy another ;0)
I coloured her with my Promarkers and highlighted her with my Prismacolor pencils. I had fun using my new Viva pearl pen and added lots of snow. I also added lots of snowy die cuts and punched snow flakes. The final touches of course how to be plenty of glitter!
I really want to thank LOTV for their generosity!
