And the winner is....

First of all I want to thank all the entrants for your fabulous cards and stories/jokes! I really enjoyed looking at all your work and laughing about your jokes.
Sorry I am a little late with the announcement but the weather here was just too good to miss and we spent most of the weekend on the beach, chilling! As for the winner...

... well, I just couldn't choose as all the entries were great so I decided to have a draw and the lucky winner is




..... Ann from Annies place! I am really pleased as I know she needs some cheering up at the moment! So Ann, congratulations!!

But, wait for it! I also decided that I am giving away a little surprise for someone else. As the winner has done a card I did another draw for the ones that did jokes and anecdotes only.
And the winner for this is: Sweetdesigninc! Well done you!

Could the winners please contact me so I can send your prizes out to you!

My Blog Candy with a twist!

Hello there!
As promised earlier, here is my new blog candy with a twist! I wanted to do one for a while and couldn't think of anything special as a reason, so now it's just like that. But to make it a bit more interesting for me I want you to do something to win my candy!
You can either make a card following my sketch underneath and link to it in your comment.
Or if you don't want to do that, make me laugh. Out loud! Tell me a really funny joke or an anecdode (spelling?), it doesn't matter what it is, but it has to be really funny!

Please let others know about my candy, too, by posting on your blog about it!

Here is my sketch then if you decide for the card :

Well and this is the price:

- A set of Nestabilities large plain Octagons
- A paket of designer Gromlets from We are Memorykeepers

Some quick cards and a box

Hello everyone,
no I haven't vanished from the face of this earth... We are in the last stages of planing for our loft extension and due to start building in 2 weeks time, so life is hectic in our household.
So I keep this short an sweet... I have a few cards to share that were made with the new Papermania kit in black and teal .

Also a card made for the Magnolia challenge over on DC which was to use yellow and pinks and a bit of sparkle.

The box is inspired by Lauren Meader who designs for PTI and I love her work.

I saw her new template and as it will only be available from tomorrow (15th May) and I thought it looked pretty easy to put together I had a fiddle on the computer and made my own template. Lo and behold, it works perfectly. Happy bunny :-) I made the pretty floral paper with a PTI stamp set as well. I stamped in 2 colours onto pearlized blueish paper and edged with the same ink and a sponge.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed the visit!
