Good Morning,

There are a few different things today, so I will get right to them.  I have drawn a Winner of my Shape EZ personal Candy today . . . and the winner is, Deonna from For the Love of Cardmaking ,  Congratulations girl!  Have a ton of fun with the goodies and thank you for all your support!

I wanted to post this for a great crafter friend Tabby from Tabby Craft designs, sometimes it's all about where to look when it comes to a great DEAL!  This is the Holiday week too so . . . no better time for a sale right?  She says this:

BIG STAMP SALE......and a Favour!

Hi my lovlies!
I posted yesterday about the Brand New Stamps that I have For Sale, and I want to say a massive massive thank you to everyone who have bought them so far :oD.......I still have tons left, and I really really want to get rid of them and get some space back in my beloved craft room..........So here comes the favour....if possible could anyone that wants to, spread the word on your blogs etc and let your lovely followers know that I have all these stamps for sale. I would be eternally gratefully to you all.  I should have done this ages ago but I got a bit sentimental about it all.....I know what a silly moo, but better late than never, I suppose!

Thanks so much are all superstars :o)

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check back here tomorrow for more new release creations!  So, I made my first ribbed cardboard project, not sure if it should be a tag or use it as the top of a card, I guess it will come to me eventually, till then, it was inspired by the fabulously talented Kylie Kueter from Kylie's Craft Room.  I tried a few new thing on this too, I created a Sentiment ornament from Tim Holtz that I distressed then stamped on and applied it with a brad that enables it to swivel.  And the corrigated board was distressed with crackle paing and Acrylic Paint.  It was very simple and fun, everyone should try it at least once!  Most important, have fun!
