Simply Sassy Blog Hop Stamp Winner

A big thank you to everyone that came hopping along with us over the weekend. I guess you must love these Sassy stamps as much as I do since the special offer set was a total sell out!
But you can still purchase the individual stamps at Funky Kits.

So...the winner of the beautiful Cinderella stamp is....drumroll please....Aunty Sue.

Congratulations chick..please EMAIL me with your full postal address then I can pass this through to Maria to arrange for your stamp to be posted.

I've been in hibernation this weekend..full of a horrible snotty cold kindly donated to me by my lovely son. He is always so generous with his bugs, but I really wish he wouldn't! I've not slept much since Thursday as I can't stop coughing for long enough to be able to get to sleep. So I spent the weekend snuggled up in my PJ's watching soppy Christmas films dosed up on decongestants but I will be back soon with some more candy...think Winter...think Maja...think gorgeous!

Simply Sassy Blog Hop ~ set 11.

Good Morning Sassy fans!

I was thrilled and delighted when Maria asked me if I would like to join in with the Simply Sassy blog hop, to showcase the new release of stamps from set 11. Well, I could hardly say no now could I??
I love a blog hop but I love the Sassy range of stamps even more!

If you've arrived here from the lovely and talented Anita's blog then you are on the right path. If not please start at the beginning at the Simply Sassy blog.

For my card I was given the most gorgeous stamp to use Cinderella. Isn't she just sooo beautiful?

As always she's coloured with DI's and SU inks. These pretty papers are Maja design Crea Diem available to buy HERE from my lovely friends at Crea Duymelot.

All the new stamps are available to buy now at Funky Kits.
There is a very special offer on these stamps HERE, for the launch weekend only, you can buy the whole set of 6 stamps for the price of 5 AND with the set you will also get free a limited edition stamp called Seasons Greetings. That means 7 stamps for the price of 5!!

This offer is only for the launch weekend while stocks last, and the limited edition stamp is only available with this offer.

The next blog for you to visit is the lovely Erica and I know she has something awesome waiting for you :)
Don't forget to leave a comment on each of the blogs...for there is rubber to be won!
If you would like to win the stamp I used for my card ( Cinderella ) but a new stamp of course, then leave a comment and a winner will be drawn at random at noon on Monday 21st November.

Thanks for looking.

Blog Candy...think PINK!

This post will stay at the top...please scroll down for any newer posts, thank you.
I got a lovely parcel in the mail today from my new friends over at Crea Shop Duymelot in Holland.
My addiction to all things papery has been satisfied...for now! I also bought some stamps for gifts and one for a blog candy.
Do you remember me telling you about Magnolia producing a special Tilda stamp, only to be sold HERE?
Magnolia are donating 500 euros to the Swedish Cancer Fund, and for every one of these stamps sold 2 euros is donated to the Pink Ribbon Cancer Fund and so a very good way to raise funds and awareness.
This charity is also very close to Astrid's heart (the owner of the Dutch shop) as she has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer herself and went into hospital last Tuesday for an operation.

There was good news and not so good news. The tumour was small and the surgeons removed it all, and it had not spread. But the bad news is that the biopsy showed this to be the most aggressive type of breast cancer, so Astrid will now have radiation treatment and chemotherapy, as a precaution, to be extra safe.
It was very fortunate that this tumour was caught so early...keep checking your boobies ladies!!
My very best wishes go to Astrid, her husband Kees, and family.
So on that note I have a little candy.

And in keeping with the Pink theme I have added a couple of extra bits and pieces.

A 6x6 pad of MME Love Me papers.

A pack of Prima flowers.

And a Pink mini ribbon kit.

The rules are a little different this please read below.
As usual, candy is for my followers and is open worldwide but I am not liable for any customs/duties that some countries impose.
But this time in order to enter I want you to post the top photo of the Tilda stamp on your sidebar, or in a post and link it back to this post...just to spread the message around again to keep on checking your boobs!
Candy will stay open until Friday November 18th 6pm GMT.
Please click on the blue froggy to enter.
Thanks for looking.

Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 72

There is a new challenge over on the Sugar Bowl today. We have a fab sketch from our very own Sugar Mama Gayle with the optional theme of "Ice and Snow". A perfect theme for this time of year when we are all trying to make some extra Christmas cards..or even a card for a Winter birthday.

I am sorry the photograph is so's dark by the time I get in from work and I am really struggling to take a good photo. This doesn't show the colours of these gorgeous papers off at all well.
I thought I would ink up an older stamp seeing as they have been sadly neglected lately! So out came the beautiful Miss Claus and she was coloured with the usual DI's, SU's and Nick Bantock inks.
The papers are Poppy design and are so beautiful in real life..thank you very much Maria xxx
If you click on her name it will take you straight to Maria's candy on her blog, which includes some of these papers too :) Not much else on here except a couple of MS snowflakes, pearls and lashings of glamour dust on her trim.

The prize for one lucky winner is a choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie  stamps, but if there are 100+ entries then the prize will increase to any 6 Sugar Nellie stamps. 
You can see all the awesome cards from all the other sweeties over at the Sugar Bowl blog.

One last thing before I go...

Ain't she just the sweetest darling you ever did see?
There is a blog hop this coming Saturday, starting over on the Simply Sassy blog for a new release of lovely yummy rubber, and you can see sneak peaks this week on the Sassy blog.
So I know what I'll be doing Saturday morning..I'll be a-hopping...hope you'll come and join me.

Thanks for looking

Sugar Bowl Challenge - 71

Today sees a new challenge over at the Sugar Bowl. We have another fab sketch from the multi-talented and very sweet Sweetie Erika for you to follow, and the optional theme this time is 'Patchwork'.
I didn't do so well with the theme this time!

I guess I also need some photography lessons...for reasons I can't fathom she looks like she's been using fake orange tanning lotion on this photo!
I do so LOVE this little lady Pippi Longsocks. And as usual, she's been coloured with Distress inks and SU inkers.
This yummy paper is one of my recent purchases Maja Design Fika from MY Dutch shop Crea Duymelot. I love it so much that I had to go and buy some more..just to put away in my cupboard and stroke..not to cut!
(Janette, yes they do post to America...and Hawaii, Russia, Norway, Indonesia, Canada, Germany, Slovenia, and even to the UK and Holland hee hee! If you don't speak Dutch as well as I do *cough* then at the top right hand corner of the page click the EN button and ta-da English!)
What else did I use...a die cut flower and leaves, SU sentiment and punches, a couple of pearls and plenty of Glamour Dust on her wings...well, all fairies need some sparkle.

The prize for one lucky winner is a choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie  stamps, but if there are 100+ entries then the prize will increase to any 6 Sugar Nellie stamps. 

Please visit the Sugar Bowl blog to see all the awesome cards from the other sweeties.

Thanks for looking today.
