You really don't want to miss.....

...this! Over on the Sugar Nellie blog Karen will soon be holding a competition. The prize is a Spellbinder Grand Caliber and a position on the Simply Sassy DT. Go and take a look  HERE and keep your eyes peeled for the competition rules of entry, after all who wouldn't want a prize like that! I know I certainly would but apparently I'm NOT allowed to enter - humph! I'm a-sulking now!

Also, on Saturday 4th December starting at 9am UK time, the Sugar Nellie DT will be having a blog hop.
I love blog hops, they're such a fun way to while away a little time. The hop is to showcase the Simply Sassy set 3 stamps so I hope you'll stop by and join in the fun. These stamps are amazing and I know you're going to love them as much as I do.

Another card I made a while ago and haven't posted duh!

This stamp is called 'Circle of Love' and available to buy HERE. This is such a cute image and can easily be used for a baby girl or boy. Donalda made a gorgeous birthday card for a boy with this image which you can see HERE. Papers are Memory Box, I love these papers but they look so wishy washy in the photo, much nicer in real life.

I'm still full of this blasted cold! I feel like it's never going to end, it's been almost 4 weeks now, and if anyone else says 'pig-flu' to me then I shall be forced to grunt and squeal at them!
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xx


  1. Oh hunny I'm sorry you are still poorly, that flipping cold is awful, just when you think it's going it's back with a vengance, I had it for 3-4 weeks too.
