2 Year Anniversary Blog Candy

Candy is now closed thank you for joining in.


Hello! Hope you are all well. My blog was 2 years old last week and to celebrate and also to say a big thank you to everyone who has visited and left such kind comments I am offering some birthday candy - 2 stamps of your choice from Lili Of the Valley. Now there are no rules, you don't need to become a follower although I would love it if you did and you don't need to link to this post but again it would be fantastic if you could, just add your name to the blue frog and on 1st February I will announce the winner.

Good Luck!

Crafty Catz Challenge #67 - Flowers & Totally Gorjuss Challenge #65 - As you like it - DT

Hello! Hope you are all well. I have my DT card for Crafty Catz and Totally Gorjuss today, I am sorry it is the same card for both challenges but I have been busy working on a magazine commission and ran out of time, I am trying hard to make more cards this year but so far it hasn't happened, too many other things that need to be done. Anyway the challenge at Crafty Catz is flowers this week and it is anything goes at Totally Gorjuss so I hope you can join us and don't forget my blog candy is still open for a little while longer so add your name to the frog to be in with a chance to win 2 Lili of the Valley stamps.

I am entering this card into the challenge over at Magical Monday which is flowers.

Totally Gorjuss Challenge 64 - Hot Colours - DT

Good morning! Today is another new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss and this week's theme is 'hot colours'. Now I just had to use one of my new Lili of the Valley stamps on this card as they have been sat looking at me and I couldn't leave them uninked any longer. The papers are a free pad that I got on a magazine and it is a good job I had it otherwise this card would have been anything but hot, it made me realise that I tend towards pastel colours and to be honest I can't see that changing any time soon lol! I hope you can join us again this week and don't forget I have blog candy on offer.

I am entering this card into the sketch challenge at Lili of the Valley.

Crafty Catz Challenge #66 - A Forgotten Stamp - DT

Good afternoon. Hope you are well and ready for the weekend, I am this has been a long week some how. Anyway today is a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and this week Aunty Sue has chosen the theme of 'use a forgotten stamp'. I had a look in my box and right at the bottom were my Miss Anya stamps, I used to use these all the time but as time has gone on and I have bought other ones they have got left so I blew off the cobwebs and made this card, hope you like it. I also have blog candy on offer at the moment and there are no rules just add your name and you never know you may win some Lili of the Valley stamps.

I am entering this card into the challenge over at Wild Orchid which is 'Let's get Sentimental' , the challenge at A Spoon Full Of Sugar which is blue and green and the challenge at Totally PaperCrafts which is 'add a heart'.

Crafty Catz Challenge #65 - Thank You - DT

Hello. Today is a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and this week the theme is 'thank you' as chosen by the lovely Suzanne. I have used one of my new Stamping Bella Ketto stamps and I love her, she is such a sweet image and was a joy to colour, I can't wait to make a card with the other one I bought too so look out for that. I coloured with Promarkers as usual and I think I got a bit carried away with the flowers but I am pleased with how it ended up. Anyway I hope you can join us this week and I look forward to seeing all your cards. I am also entering this card into the challenge over at Stamp Something which is 'anything goes' and A Spoonfull of Sugar which is 'thank you'.

This card is for sale on ebay.

Totally Gorjuss Challenge 62 - DT

Hello. I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. Yesterday was a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss and this week we have another of Net's great sketches to follow. I have used a Mo Manning image on this card and one of my new Whimsey sentiment stamps, I am hooked on them after getting the Christmas ones so no doubt I will end up buying all the sets. I have felt like my mojo has still been on it's Christmas break this week so fingers crossed it comes back to life next week as I have loads of new ideas floating around my head but can't seem to get them to come to life on the card yet.

Crafty Catz Challenge #64 - Food and Drink - DT

Hello! It is nice to be back after the Christmas break, I hope you all had a great time over the holidays we did and it seemed to go so quickly I was really sad to take down all my decorations on Monday the house seems so bare and boring now. Anyway it is the first challenge of 2011 over at Crafty Catz and this week's theme is 'Food and Drink', we are sponsored by Blackleaf Studios and they kindly gave the DT some gorgeous cupcake images to play with and they were a joy to work with. I hope you can join us this week and I look forward to visiting you all, it is one of my new year's resolutions to try and leave more comments this year.
