First of all, the winners of the metallic markers in the May challnege, thanks to all of you who took part (some of you more than once). I had such a hard time choosing a favourite this month.
Before I go on to that, those of you with Shabby Blogs backgrounds on your blogs, Google is flashing up a malaware notice, apparently Shabby blogs has been hit by a virus, so if I didn't comment on your challenge card, this is the reason - I managed to get hold of a couple of you with the message, but didn't have contact details for everyone, so this is just a heads up
The other thing is word verification. Can I made a heartfelt plea for folk to turn off this dratted thing. They have recently made it even more difficult, all the letters are now wobbly and strange, and it can take me as much as three tries to get it right. Go to your settings and click off. If you are worried about spam, turn on comment moderation instead, it means you get to vet the posts before they are published. More about that later.......
Now on to the fun stuff. The card I chose as my favourite of the month is this one by

Congrats to you both. Your prize will be sent direct from Letraset, so please go to their site to decide whether you want set 1 or set 2 of the markers, then email me with your name, address and telephone number.
On to the draw for the metallic markers that I used for my Letraset post. the name that came out on the random thingy for them was
Congrats CyndiU, email me with your address and I will get them in the mail to you
I will draw the winners of the Jubilee goodies on Saturday and post them on Sunday, so be sure to pop back then
I am turning comment moderation on again, which means that your comments won't show up straight away when you make them. All of a sudden I am having a lot of idiot messages, and although the spam filter catches most of them, I want to make sure that no suspicious stuff makes it onto the blog, and I don't think many of you are interested in adding inches to a dangly bit of anatomy that 99.9% of us don't possess! Come to that, hands up all those of you who have a relative called Okambo Mutiwashe in Kenya. I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but poor old Uncle Okambo has died, the good news is he has left us £31.5 million. Bless him, he always was my favourite uncle......... Here is a message for Sexy Suzes - thank you for the offer Suzes, I am not really interested in having a penfriend, even one who will send me photos to look at. So comment moderation it is I think
I'll be back tomorrow with the June challenge, sponsored by Letraset again (but first I have to go away and think of a challenge to set, and make a card)
