Good News All Round...

Morning it really Monday already...the weekend always seems to fly...the start of another working week but before I share what I've been up to over the's time to announce the lucky winner of Monday's Monthly Give-Away....

if you e-mail me Susan with your address...
your Ribbon Girl delicious bundle of goodies will be popping through your letterbox soon

and if you weren't lucky enough to win this time....
you can pop across to THE RIBBON GIRLS and get your name in the hat for this gorgeous selection of their Favourite New Products...

After my skivving off "coffee and chat" day on might be thinking I spent Sunday catching with the crafty list but with the sunny weather set to continue...the declutter section of my brain went into over-drive so I bit the bullet...loaded the car and set off to the car boot again. I know what you're thinking "have I gone mad...I could hardly walk for a week after my last trip...damn near finished me off" but hey I think the old body is becoming acclimatised...well no after effects yet...the garage is no longer the clutter zone it was and hubby's very happy. And the best news...I took along a huge box of Design Team cards that have been taking up space in the cubbyhole...sold at £1 each with the proceeds going to a local a very productive day but in a different way.
I even managed to sneak in another play with the new boys from Hero Arts...

Don't they just stamp beautifully...I'm always banging on at demos and workshops about using top quality stamps and inks and Hero Arts deliver every time...shame about the wonky stitching.
See you all tomorrow for my second Guest Design spot over at
