BLOG CANDY - 2000 hits! - CLOSED

The winner is Renata.

Congratulations, please contact me with your address details. Thank you to everyone for taking part in my candy.


I asked my Mum if I could have some blog candy to celebrate reaching 2000 hits in 3 months. I love my blog and am so happy that my Mum said I could start one. I have made lots of friends.

I will draw the winner on Monday 1st September at 3pm GMT. You will receive the above image folder (made by Mum) and you can choose what images you would like stamped. I will also raid my Mum's blooms too ;-) I will be sending you a special card made by me but this will be a surprise.

To enter my candy please leave your details in the comment post below and help spread the word by posting on your blog. If you also tell everyone about my Challenge blog "Crafty Monkey's" I will enter your name in twice. If you do not have a blog I will be happy to receive your entry by email. I am happy to send the prize worldwide.

Good Luck.

Crafty Monkey's Challenge 5 - Christmas

Here is my card for this weeks challenge over at Crafty Monkey's. Our theme for this challenge is Christmas. If you do not have the appropriate stamp we look forward to seeing your hand drawn work.

We have a great prize this week (see picture below) that has been very kindly donated by Bernie. We also have some stamped images of some Alota kids which have been stamped by my Mum included in this prize.
We would also like to welcome Hollie and Lauren as our guest designers for our challenge. Thank you both for your gorgeous cards.

The layout of my card was inspired by a sketch by Mumur. Do you like my new stamp as this is from a set which my Mum bought for me at The Range this week. The set is called "Christmas Cute 'n' Cuddly. I have coloured my image using my whisper pens and added a little sparkle using Stickles. The paper and fibres are from Mum's stash.

Me and Hannah received this great award from Barb earlier in the week for our blog Crafty Monkey's. Thank you Barb.

I hope you will join in our challenge... please tell your friends and family.

Thank you

I made this card today to send to someone who has been very kind to me. I won't spoil the surprise and will tell you who when she receives it.

Today I received some fabulous mail from my friend Hannah. She has made me a gorgeous scrapbook and Notebook. The Scrapbook tells me all about her and her family. I love it and such a great idea too. Thanks again Hannah.

On Friday I also received this beautiful card from my friend Holly with some stamped images. I love the cute kitty. Thank you Holly it so nice to receive this from you. I love the pictures of your kitty on your blog. Me and my sister have lots of happy land too.

We are off to see Wall-E tomorrow and my sister and I cannot wait.

Dressing up fun

We have just been to town and our Mum treated us to some dressing up outfits. I love HSM and my little sister loves Giselle from Enchanted. She thinks she is a little princess in her costume. As you can see we are having lots of fun on our trampoline.

Hope you like our pictures,

Even my cat Gemma loved my HSM Pom Pom's!

Crafty Monkey's Challenge 4 - Summer Holiday

Here is my card for our challenge over at Crafty Monkey's. The theme for our new challenge is Summer Holiday.

I am so pleased to say that my friend Sanne has joined us for this challenge as our Guest Designer. You can see her beautiful card over at our challenge blog.

We have a great prize of a Magnolia Tilda stamp which has very kindly been donated by Jane.

We had a great time in Cornwall visiting our Nanny. Even though the weather wasn't very good we still had lots of fun and played on the beach in the rain with Nanny. We have collected some shells which we have bought home to put in our garden. This picture was taken of us in my Nanny's garden.
Hope you like my card and I love this cute Maggie and Hamish stamp.
