Here's the last of this week's giveaways. A Martha Stewart acrylic alphabet stamp set (it's really pretty, with tiny flowers and vines all over the letters), a set of Aquarium chalk inks, some wide peach seam binding ribbon, and a pack of five ribbons. You will also get a roll of red and white bakers twine, which seems to have rolled off the table when I took the photo!
Kimberley asked if you needed to use Polkadoodles images for the challenge blog. The answer is no, use any cute image you like, as long as you follow the basic rules of the challenge - like red white and green Christmas for this week
Essentials magazine (a new one for me, I have never done work for them before). My brief was to make eight quick and easy cards using the Magical Winter CD by Polkadoodles. Four were for Christmas, and four for a winter birthday. The photo that I took of this angel is rubbish, you can hardly see that she is hanging by a silver cord from a silver star, but it is one of my favourites, so I wanted you to see it. I made these back in the summer of course, and photographed them hastily before I sent them off to the magazine - it's on sale now in the UK, next month in the USA
We are babysitting Max and Milo this weekend, I plan to bake cupcakes with them, maybe a visit to Santa, definitely a visit to Costa Coffee, where they sit like a couple of old men over a babychino (frothy milk for those of you not in the know) and an extra large muffin each.........
