Blog Candy Winner

Hi Everyone

It's been a lovely, sunny week in Swanage, just a shame it's damp and cloudy today. Mum and I have been very lucky and got down to the beach hut nearly every day, I even took her paddling yesterday.
I have enjoyed having my first blog candy and it's been a great blog hop at MAWTT. The winning person who will receive the Daisy and Dandelion goodies was chosen by my Mum and so without further ado it is - dah dah dah dah  ..................................................................

JOYCE  of Gram's treasures - congratulations Joyce over in Canada. Thankyou for taking part and if you email me your address I will get the candy in the post to you as soon as possible next week.

I haven't been able to post any cards or projects this week being away in Swanage with Mum, BUT I brought a couple of small tubs of crafting bits with me and I have made 6 cards in the evenings, so look out for them appearing over the next few weeks in between DT challenge cards.

I tell you it's amazing how inventive and creative you can be when you have limited stash, for instance I didn't bring my heat resistant mat with me that I use to distress edges with TH distress inks - instead I used a cellophane magazine bag and it was just the job. I had also found some gorgeous little pink and cream ribbon roses in a local craft shop the day before I left home and I packed them in the tub to bring with me. I have used them a couple of times - but the card I finished today needed slightly different colours to what I had got - so I painted these cute roses with white acrylic paint and added cosmic shimmer glitter glue and they are just brilliant - talk about altering your embellishments. You're just gonna have to wait to see them.

I will be back with my first DT card for OSAAT on Sunday, so I will see you then.

In the meantime enjoy the end of the week and have a good weekend.

Luv Bxxxx
