Sneak Peak No. 3

So here's the final set of sneak peeks.  Sorry it's so late but I'm cutting it close tonight.  Tomorrow we launch our new challenge and since it's nearly Christmas the prize will be a goodie so make sure you check us out.

Well on with the peeks...

Donna (that's me)

and I also have a card from my Mother-in-law who doesn't keep a blog but who has kindly done a card for us.


So there we have it, no more teasing, tomorrow it's all for real.  Bye for now.

Sneak Peek No. 2

So here's the second of our sneak peeks.  Have you guessed the theme yet?



Hope your all gonna join us on Tuesday.

Back tomorrow with the last of the sneak peeks.

Popcorn Bear Candy Winner

I am so sorry for the delay in drawing the winner but I'really have been snowed under lately.  Without further ado,  I checked all the entries and used to generate the winner.

As you can see the winner is Jackie.  Well done, Jackie, send me your address on and I'll get your prize out to you straight away.

Don't forget, the challenges start on Tuesday 1st December.  Keep on looking.

Back tomorrow with a couple more and the winner of the candy.

Candy Time!

I noticed my visitors passed 1,000 recently so I thought I'd run a candy giveaway.

The prize up for grabs is a Popcorn Bear CDRom (the Mens one of course) and I'm going to keep the candy open until my middle son's birthday which is 26th November. I'm currently working on my card for him and here's a sneak preview of my practice colouring....

It's a Mo Manning image ( I just love her work) and if the winning entry correctly names the image I've used, I'll throw in a surprise.

So what do you have to do:
1. Leave a comment on this post.
2. Post about my candy on your blog or in your sidebar.
3. Become a follower if you're not already.

Good luck everyone, I'll draw the winner on 27th November 2009 and post it here.

Birthday Card for Matthew

Here is my finished card for my son who will be 4 on Thursday.  You'll have to excuse the timestamp in the photograph.  I didn't realise it was there until I uploaded the pic and it's not even the right date!

So I've used a piece of Red A4 card folded in half.  The papers used are from Dovecraft's Kids papers.  I won't mention the name of the image as it's part of the candy above but it is from the wonderful Mo Manning.  I've coloured it using my Prismacolours which I think I'm starting to get the hang of.  The photo doesn't do it justice.

Anyway, hope he likes it.  I'm sure he'll just toss it aside for the pressies.  After all, he's only four!

UPDATE:  I've just found a challenge to enter for boys cards over at Cute Card Thursday so have entered this card.  Pop over and give it a try.

Have you seen my blinkie?

In anticipation of my new challenge starting up at the beginning of December, I asked my husband (sorry web developer) to make me a blinkie. 

Donnas Den

What do you think? To add the blinkie to your sidebar, just copy the HTML code from my sidebar and paste it into a 'HTML gadget' on your own blog.

Bye for now. Back tomorrow with some candy, yeah!

Drum roll please......

I said I'd announce my DT team today and here I am, better late than never!  I was really pleased and impressed with all the entries and had a jolly hard time deciding, but decide I did.  So without further ado ....

I'd really like to thank everybody who sent me their work or best wishes and to welcome all my new followers.  Our first challenge will be on 1st December so please come back and join in with us.
