Use up those numbers.......

First of all today, the blog candy winners. I entered 389 (allowing for the folks who emailed me asking to be included), and the UK winner is
SCRAPPYMAX

and from the USA
STACY (URATOON FROM THE CRICUT MESSAGE BOARD)

Congratulations to you both, enjoy your goodies. Email me with your address and I will get them in the post to you
(what a faff that random generator was, not the site itself, but the photos were a bit of a challenge, slight problems going on here getting used to my new camera, but that's another story..............)
On to the card, I use thickers, and various other alphabets quite a lot on my cards, I love the bold statement they make, but I never seem to use up the numbers, so I had this idea, mix them all up, different fonts, different textures, and here's the result. I like it, some of the letters are felt, some foam, some chipboard, so there's a lot going on here................


and I got rid of all those wasted numbers, plus a bonus, this card would do for a bloke as well. Now I have an idea for all those zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's. Watch this space



We are off to London today to babysit Max and Milo for a couple of days. Milo (9 months) is at the stage where he screams blue murder if his mum dares to leave the room, Max (2 3/4) is at the stage where he constantly asks 'what you doing' and 'WHY?' - so be prepared for an exhausted wail of a post tomorrow
