Thankyou to everyone who entered my DT call and those of you who left good wishes or posted about it.  I'm going to deliberate for the next few days and aim to announce my decision here on Monday.

I have a tough decision to make!

Great Blog Candy! You won't want to miss this....

This wonderful blog candy is up for grabs over on Crafter's Kitchen.  I stumbled across it when following a blog hop for Digital Pencil which is one of my favourite sites/shops.  Go and check them both out, you won't be disappointed.

Paper Inspirations

I found this great card whilst blog-hopping this morning.  It's from Danielle over at Paper Inspirations and she has some more great cards for you to see.  I think she is absolutely right about this style of card being very suitable for men which is why I decided to show it here.

This gives you another view....

Have a look over on Danielle's blog for some more examples and a link to the card-fold instructions.

Have a great Sunday, everyone.

I bet you thought I'd gotten lost, didn't you. I've had such a hard time keeping up with things these last few months. But hey, hopefully, we'll be better this time.

I've done this card for Challenge 4 - 3D Elements over at Crafty Cardmakers Blog which is a new blog (to me) that is excellent. It's ideal for novice and experienced crafters alike, the prizes are great and there are super tutorials to boot. I really recommend hopping on over for a look.

So, onto my card. the base is from a box of textured cards from DCWV that I stock over in my shop. The decoupage was a digi-download from Pollycrafts and the "Boo!" Brad is from a set of HOTP Brad Buddies which I love.

These Brads are great and I stock lots of them in my shop. Each pack has six large brads (two of each design) and you can see from my card they're a good size. Why not pop over now and take a look here?

Well, that's me done for now. See you soon. Why not take a look at my other blog to keep up to date with the goings on in my shop.
