Thanks to all of you who joined in with the ProMarker giveaway last week. I wish I could send some to ALL of you, especially those who haven't tried them yet, you have a treat in store. Perhaps Santa may drop some down the chimney if you are very, very good... see names of stockists on an earlier post this week, and don't forget that these alcohol markers are very affordable in comparison with others on the market, you can start a collection very reasonably, and build upon it.
Don't despair if your names didn't come up this time, Letraset are sponsoring my blog, and there will be more prizes of ProMarkers, you may be lucky next time
The winners were drawn by a random husband (Mike) - all the comments for the week were printed out, cut up, and shaken but not stirred. The first two names he pulled out are
Tabitha - On Eagle's Wings blog
dj1952 - Designs by dj blog
big congrats to you both, email me with your address and your choice of 10 Promarker colours (use the chart on the sidebar to make your choice, click on it to enlarge and print out)
Your markers will be sent direct from Letraset

Thanks to Paul and the rest of the team there for their continuing support of Going-Buggy
Whilst you are in the mood for winning stuff, be sure to keep coming back here for news on the big blog party I am having sometime in January, to celebrate all you 2,000+ followers, and over 500,000 visitors to the blog. There will be prizes galore (a lot of them will really get you buzzing.. , lots of fun stuff to do, and I am planning to make it a really fun week for us all. You don't need a blog to join in, everyone is welcome.
Here's a couple more quick cards that I made just before packing up my stuff. I found these cute Christmas decoupage creatures from Papermania UK, and quickly popped the layers out and decoupaged them using Pinflair glue I buy this online from the UK, it isn't actually silicone but a clear glue that dries raised to keep the layers of your projects apart.
I used the cuttlebug music embossing folder for the first one, and added some pompoms on their hats
the next two were made with base cards cut with the Wildcard cricut cartridge (the doily card cut), a bit of embossing, some glitter and a pom pom or two, easy
and here's a photo of just some of the unpacked craft stuff that has been toted across the atlantic -now all I have to do is put the stuff away. The note in the foreground was put in the case by the Department of Homeland Security, who very kindly left it for me to tell me that because of the 'large number of unidentifiable objects' in the case, it had been opened and examined by the security people. I wonder if they tested all the martha punches I had in there.
The journey home was fine, a few dreary delays because of bad weather in various places, but you expect that in December. Apparently I was very irritating on the plane, fidgeting a lot so I was told by my dearly beloved - he can drop off to sleep, and slumber peacefully until the plane is about to land, (or until I wake him with my fidgeting). It was a long day, and it's lovely to be home. Cold, but lovely.
See you tomorrow
