Cherry Pip Giveaway

Where did my weekend go to? I think the Fairy Time-thief pinched the days right from under my nose!

Hi ho hi ho it's back to work I go..and I do not sing that in a happy little people voice on a Monday morning. No siree! I sing it more in a funeral march style of singing...sad and bone weary.
But I am counting down the weeks until my next holiday..I LIVE for the holidays and I have my fingers crossed I can wangle a week off sometime next month.

On another note:

Remember this card from the Sugar Bowl challenge 64?
I was very lucky to receive this stamp and the other 4 Sherbet Pips off my Sweetie sister Erika for my birthday, and this lovely pad of papers off my new Sweetie sister Fi.
I do loves these Pips very much and I adore the papers, right up my colour street!
So I bought another pad of them ( First Edition Up, Up Away) and a brand new stamp (Cherry Pip) to give away to a reader. Just leave a comment after this post. I will pick a winner tomorrow's only a little giveaway so no need for the linky thingy and no need to advertise it..just leave a comment :)
Thanks for looking
Love Elaine xxx
