It's Blog Candy Time!

I'VE EDITED THIS MESSAGE SO (HOPEFULLY!) IT WILL REMAIN AT THE TOP OF MY BLOG UNTIL THE COMPETITION IS OVER.



PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS!



WILL ALSO BE ADDING PHOTOS OF ENTRIES AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST FOR PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE A BLOG.



As promised, it's blog candy time. There are three reasons for me doing this. (1) My counter has passed 16,000 hits - wow! can't believe that! and I would like to say thank you to everyone who visits my blog.....would never have dreamed I would have so many visitors since I began blogging at the beginning of December last year! (2) It's my birthday in just over a week and (3) had some fantastic news - Tony (my husband) is coming home for good!! For those of you who don't know, Tony has been working in Australia for the past 15 months and we have only seen him twice in that time.....the last time being at the beginning of October last year! He should be home within a matter of weeks - he's given me the date of 10 June but that is only provisional at the moment but I don't care! He's given his notice in (no job here as yet - yikes!) but I haven't told the boys and don't plan to....I want it to be a total surprise for them!!! Can't wait to see their faces when they see him at the door!!


Right, on to the candy. Here's what's up for grabs....



I've decided to give away some of my favourite things! The winner will receive:-

  • Set of pink ribbons from Ribbon Mad in their own organza bag
  • 1 pot of Glamour Dust
  • 1 Quickie Glue Pen
  • A selection of flowers (Bazzill, Prima, etc)

  • 1 Pack of Blonde Moments Sugar Dumpling DP
  • 1 Spool of pink stitched ribbon
  • 1 Pack of Fabric Brads from Poppicrafts
  • 1 Pack of Lilac Adhesive Stones from Papermania
  • 1 Set of Acrylic Stamps from Studio G
  • 2 Cute Penguin Stamps from Snag'em Stamps.

I think that's it! Now, all you have to do is make a birthday card which is pretty and pink! That's it! I'd like it to be a new card and just for this challenge please. I will ship internationally and you've got until Midnight (GMT) on 04 June to submit your cards when I will get my two boys to pick a winner out of the hat! Just leave a comment with a link to your card and if you don't have a blog, e-mail me with a photo of it and I will put it on my blog. My e-mail address is in my Profile.

Hope you'll join in and help me celebrate!

Great news on your hubby. Hope he finds a job soon. I'm sure he will want to spend some time with his family and get adjusted to the different time zone. If we don't hear from you for a little bit, we understand, but don't be gone too long, we want to hear the great stories.

Jo I had just popped on to say many thanks for your lovely words of support on my blog but having read that your hubby is coming home I want to say....YIPEE!!!
My hubby served in Iraq last year and our time apart was heartbreaking so I am over the moon for you!!!!
(I am also completely jealous of the Clive Owen situation but my hubby hasn't stopped grinning about it...all I can say is lucky you for being so close!!!)
I have stopped by your blog before but am going to add it to mine as I think its fab!!!
Have a lovely evening, Emma,x

My First Christmas Card!

I saw this card demonstrated by Sue Wilson last year and have only just got around to having a go!

I'm not completely happy with the colour of the holly as I feel it is a little too bright.

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.
