Simon Says Stamp Saturday Surprise winner

This weeks winner of the  Magnolia Tilda with Gift rubber stamp is .....

Yolanda - congratulations sweetie, please email me your address details with the stamp name Magnolia Tilda with Gift rubber stamp in the subject line of the email.

Thanks for stopping by,

Come take a ride with us

Today is Whimsy Stamps Blog hop day to celebrate the launch of their new stamps by Crissy Armstrong.  And what stunners they are – I was drooling when the postie delivered these babies lol.
I have used the Untamed Love and accessories.  I just LOVE this stamp – I have always loved carousel horses so really went to town on this one.  I’ve coloured the image with Copics (I used so many I didn’t get to list all the colours but probably used most of what I have rofl).  The usual Stickles were applied.
I decided to cut the horse out so I could make use of the roses Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The paper is Imaginisce.  I used one of the accessory stamps in the set to stamp along the pink punched border (though you can’t see it very well under the ribbon).
The gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts – where else lol.  They have quite a lot of new stock in as well as restocks of the always popular favourites.  I’ve spritzed them with Snow Angel and Pearl Glimmer Mists for a bit of extra bling.
Right, if you’re still with me then here’s the details of the blog hop.  Denise has put up a fab prize to one lucky person, so if you have landed here from Deb’s blog you’re in the right place, if not you need to start at Crissy’s blog and work your way through.  The hop runs from today through to January 9th.

The next blog in the hop is Denise
Here’s a pic of the prize – have fun!

Create4Fun Challenge

It’s my turn to provide the sketch for Create4Fun Challenge blog this week.  Another simple one I’m afraid – at the mo I can’t be doing with fussy sketches although now that I have almost caught up with my behind the scenes DT work I can get back into lots of layers again.


And it’s another Magnolia card from me today – I’m just loving their new Tildas, this one is from the new Wedding collection that I picked up at the NEC last November.  I don’t think they are available to buy in the shops yet but should hopefully be out soon.


I’m back in my pink phase again lol – these papers were still on my desk from last week when I was working on some other DT work so I’m afraid you will be seeing a lot of similar cards soon once I can upload those cards on my blog (mid January I think).


The BEEEEAUTIFUL gardenias and roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have spritzed them with pearl and snow angel Glimmer Mists – loving the bling lol.  The pearl pins are from The Hobby House as is the Melissa Francis paper.  I don’t know who the dotty paper is by, there was no name on it and it’s another I have had for ages – typical hey.  The little fern leaf punch is a Woodware one.


The sentiment is from a Hot off the Press kit from QVC a long time ago.  The pretty organza ribbon is from Craft Fairy – it is really shimmery IRL.  I have added Stickles to her petticoat and wings although it’s not showing in the photo’s.

Simon Says Stamp Saturday Surprise

Our first blog candy of 2010!  Once again it's Saturday Surprise time again. This week Simon Says Stamp is going to supply a Magnolia Tilda with Gift rubber stamp from the So Jolly collection.  I think quite a few of the latest collection can be used all year round, not only for Christmas cards.  This little cute could be used for winter birthdays I think.
Entry is by Mr Linky only. All you need to do to enter the draw is leave a link to your blog in Mr Linky so I can find you and if you fancy, mention it on your blog (that would be great, but not necessary to be in the draw). The winner will be announced on Sunday evening.

And if you don't have a blog you can still enter - enter your full name in the name box and in the URL box underneath just link back to my blog and keep a note of your Linky number in case you're the winner.

If Mr Linky is not showing he's probably playing up .. AGAIN!!  Please pop back later to enter.

That was 2009

Happy New Year - I hope this year is going to be good to us all.

I've seen quite a few of my blogging friends have showcased their favourite cards from 2009 - choosing one card from each month, and me hating feeling left out decided to join in lol.  And it turned out to be quite a marathon, there were quite a few cards that I battled to choose between, and a lot I had forgotten all about too.
