Last competition

One last competition for you today. I don't know about you, but I have never partied so hard and for so long..... I have one heck of a hangover!
Before we get onto that, I got a new Cricut cartridge in the mail yesterday - Wrap it Up, it was my prize for being featured in the Chirp, so of course I couldn't wait to try it out.
The font for the phrases on this cartridge is very pretty, but very fine, one of those that are quite difficult to stick onto your card. I used one of the fine tip glue pens, and it worked okay. The little pink pearls on the box are pink Liquid Pearls
Mother's day is a lot earlier here in the UK than in the USA - usually the beginning of March, so I really wanted to try this very pretty shaped card and a little matching box. The card was cut at 6", and the box at 9" (I used fit to page). It makes an elegant little set doesn't it? I am giving it to a friend to give to her mum on Mother's Day

Now on to the last competition of the week. You have until saturday to enter - all the winners will be worked out on Sunday 23rd.
So what do you have to do?
Take a wild guess would be my advice.....
I want you to tell me how many Doodle Dewdrops you think there are in this little tube.
For those of you who approach these things in a scientific way, I have shown the tube against a ruler so you can see the size..........
and the diameter.........

The winner will be the person who is closest (or spot on!) if there are lots of you, I will do a random draw from those who get it right

What do you win?
A Collectors Edition of the Sugar Birdies CD by Polkadoodles, some Fru Fru ribbon, and the tube of Doodle Dewdrops (which was opened by me and the dewdrops carefully counted... I need to get a life..)
PLUS some other goodies that aren't in the photo - it will be a surprise package full of yumminess
Leave your guesses in the comments under this post

Don't forget that you can still take part in any of the contests that have been running for a week, they are all still open

I have a task for you as well, in a few days YOU will be voting for the cards you like best from the first day of the party, so if you have a bit of spare time, pull up a chair, make yourself a coffee, and click on the names below the thumbnail photos to take a close up look at the cards, and make a note of your favourite for when the voting starts

  48. Ok, I am not sure how big a dew drop is as I have never seen them before so my wild guess is 168. Thanks for all the fun this week.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Well, I measured the container mine are in. It's about 2 inches shorter and a half inch smaller in diamer to yours. So judging by what mine holds, and allowing for the size difference. I'd say 50 to 60. Of course your drops might be smaller than mine, so I would be way off. But that's my story and I'm stickin to it! lol Thanks for all the fun this week En!
