I've coloured an image that I had in my collection from our sponsor, Di's Digi Stamps, with my markers and added a little glitter to the icing on the cake - this is pink in real life but the light from the camera is turning it lilac.

Hi Crafters,

I recently won a blog candy from Pauline, check out her blog, she makes some fabulous projects. It was a magazine with dies and stamps attached and I couldn't wait to get started.
Here are the post-it note holders that I made and a card.

The die cuts the outline and a filigree centre, it's very pretty and versatile. Then there's the matching stamp too and some useful sentiments.

I love this wavy sentiment stamp, I can see me using this one a lot.


Well this post is rather late in the day, I've been busy getting some orders finished, poor hubby hasn't seen me all evening :o/ Now I'm done in and ready for bed so I'll toddle off now and see you soon.

An hour later

Our Zoe has chosen a theme of 


This made me scratch my head a little but eventually I came up with a card that was somewhat quirky for Christmas.

Although it still has a Christmas tree the colours are not usual for Christmas. I bought this Britannia Christmas Tree die a long time ago with great expectations from it but each time I use it I find I don't like the result, but maybe that's just me.
