Apart from December, June is the busiest month of the year in this household, with so many occasions to celebrate. My Mum and Dads anniversary, my favourite brother-in-laws birthday, my Dad's birthday, Fathers Day, and whole host of friends birthdays, and in amongst them is my birthday.
I was out all but one evening last week, and next week isn't any different. It's always lovely to catch up with friends and family and I've had the best week ever, but there are some bad points to all this socialising.
Dining out 4 nights in a week is not at all good for the waistline and I've got a Buddha belly.
I've not been home much so no crafty stuff has been accomplished and I've hardly had a chance to even turn my laptop on all week.
Next week will be no better.
No cards to show but I do have a little celebration candy.
I couldn't think of anything new and amazing to offer as candy so how about a gift voucher?
The hardest part was deciding which shop to offer a voucher for.
I have 6 shops that are my personal favourite places to go and fill my basket but for obvious (financial) reasons, I can't give vouchers for them all...or the boy would be eating boiled/fried/roasted string for the rest of the month.
And so for this candy I've chosen two shops (in alphabetical order)
One winner chosen at random will win £25 in vouchers to spend at Dies To Die For.
Tracy has the best selection of dies to be found anywhere, and also stocks a wide variety of stamps, papers and embellies. Most definitely a fabulous shopping experience.
And one winner chosen at random will win £25 in vouchers to spend at Live And Love Crafts.
If you love vintage and shabby chic embellishments then you're in heaven here. I buy the embellies just to look at and stroke! And then Sandy has the most delicious papers to drool over :)
I'll leave the candy running a little longer than usual, in the hope I get the time to actually make something in the meantime.
If you have a preference as which voucher you would like to win then please feel free to leave that in a comment.

Thanks for looking and good luck!
