evening we went over to Vicki's for a takeaway as it was Molly's 14th
birthday on Wednesday - this has become a bit of a traditional over the
As it was the first day of the month, I prepared everything so I
could ask Molly if she'd pick the winners for last month's Prize Draws!
I'm really pleased to announce the winner of the customer's Prize Draw
is Dawn Gould. Congratulations, Dawn! ☺
The prize that will soon be
winging it's way to Dawn is a set of the Large Letters Framelits Dies
and Letters for You Stamp Set.
also asked Molly to draw the winner for the second part of the Prize
Draw, which was open to everybody who couldn't shop with me, because
Stampin' Up! rules don't allow cross-border sales.
All they had to do was to leave a message on my blog.
The prize for this draw is a box of my handmade
cards plus a surprise of something that's very English!
pleased to announce the winner is Daisychain! Congratulations,
Please email me your address Daisychain -
email@example.com - so I can send you your prize!

Molly is having her hair cut for charity, and all the
sponsor money she receives, she's giving to her teacher who's running in
the London marathon in April.
Molly's teacher is raising money for a
charity which provides holidays for disabled children, whose parents
can't afford holidays.
So far Molly has raised £300!
card I'm sharing today is another swap from Team Training recently.
dragon is a complete card and has been made exquisitely - it's
It was made by Sue Hookins from
card base is Whisper White Cardstock (CS), with a layer of Old Olive
CS, then Pumpkin Pie CS, and the dragon has been stamped on a layer of
Shimmery White CS!
I think one of the first things that makes
Sue's card stand out is that she has left a wider than normal gap
between the Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie layers.
Sue stamped the dragon, which is from the Magical Day Stamp Set, using
Basic Black Archival Ink.
We are advised to use Memento Ink when we're
using Stampin' Blends, but this is the second time I've seen our Basic Black Archival
ink being used successfully!
Sue has used Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and
Smokey Slate Blends to colour the dragon, as well as grounding him.
the sentiment, which is from the same stamp set, Sue stamped it in Old
Olive Ink on a piece of Whisper White CS, and then die cut it using an
oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies!
This was then adhered
to a larger straight die cut oval made from the Layering Ovals
This was then adhered to a larger Old Olive scalloped
oval die cut.
A truly beautiful card - I wish I could say I'd made it!
That's about it from me today! Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
