10,000 Hits - The Return!

Well I approach this number again!! My first counter went it's merry way and I had to start this new one so as I have been a very bad Blogger recently I have decided to give away 10,000 hits candy to you my lovely friends again by way of an apology.

Right now - there are so many stamps out there and so many of us buying - sooooo what I propose is that YOU choose which stamp you want for the candy and if you win I will get it! Sound okay? That way you get one you've not got (current stamps that are readily available please)!!

To be in with a chance of winning this candy just leave a comment 'fessing up to your biggest crafty splurge and let me know which stamp you want. I will randomly draw a winner next Saturday, 13th December.

Cute Card Thursday #40 - Punches

First of all - WOW I can't believe we are at challenge 40 on Cute Card Thursday! Congratulations to Andrea and to Deb too who was there at the beginning!

This week we are asking you to dust off your punches (not die cuts!). Well - as restraint is NOT usually my middle name I didn't see any reason to change and think I may have gone a little bit punch-drunk with this one (get it??!!).

Anyhow I used one of the new Sugar Nellie stamps "Luvvie" and coloured her with Promarkers and Ranger white pen for accents here and there. The paper is from Papermania creams pad and I have used a Fiskars border punch on just about every edge! The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and I have coloured it with ink and triple embossed over the top with clear EP. Some Hobbycraft ribbon and punches embellished with peel-offs and cystal lacquer finish it off.

After bragging constantly for months about how I have made all my Christmas cards I now find myself in the embarrassing position of not having actually written or posted any!! Think I'd better be off ..............

Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges - Frosty Nights

Brrrr it's getting chilly out of doors and over on Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges we have a theme of "Frosty nights"! This week, in addition to the Frosty theme, we are also looking for someone to join the team as a Guest Designer for the month of January. So if you would like to be considered, please add GD to your comment on the blog along with a link to your ATC.

This Tilda image was sent to me by Annie and I have coloured her with Promarkers and a Ranger white pen. I rang some vellum through the Cuttlebug and used blue and pink Brilliance to add some colour. Six punched out snowflakes and a snowflake shrink plastic charm with some craft wire attached to a Dovecraft brad finishes it off.
