DT Call

If you pop over to Funky Fairys Challenge blog they are looking for new design team members. You had better be quick though as there are only another few hours left.

Stamp Something challenge

Here's my card for the stamp somthing challenge. The theme is summer in winter. I thought this stamp with the deckchair is meant to be what summer is about, relaxing outside in the sunny weather, not that we get much of it in the country.

New awards

I would like to say a very big thank you to Rozzy for the above awards. She has given me the Kreative Award, the Lemonade Award and the One Lovely Blog award.
I am new to the world of blogs so it is great to be recognised so early on, although I am limited to blogs I have visited so will have to think who to pass them on to.

For the Kreative Award you have to nominate 5 people who inspire you and why.
I would like to nominate
Rozzy. I know she has given me the award. Although Rozzy is quite new to stamping it is partly thanks to her that I started buying Penny Black stamps. Also her albums are fabulous. It is thanks to her that I started making paper bag albums a few months ago.
Maxine. Maxine's cards are always so cute. It is thanks to some of Maxine's cards that I have bought a Lily and Milo stamp.
Andrea. Andreas cards are always so cute or sophisticated.
Claire and May. It is thanks to Claire and May that I have got some lovely ideas for the Cuttlebug(I may not have used them as yet). It is also after seeing their cards and atc's that I bought a Tilda Stamp before christmas.

For the Lemonade Award you have to nominate 5 people who have shown great attitude or grattitude within the last week.
Rozzy-Has been such a great listener to me.
Jude-Does all her crafting despite illness
Claire-Does all her crafting despite illness and always thanks me for comments on Trimcraft

Favourite project of 2008
