And the winner is.......

Sorry about the delay in letting you know the winner of the Promarkers, but I'm afraid I am still far from well, this flu has knocked me right off my feet. Thanks to everyone who entered, the name that came up from random.org is

Craftyhugs (Sharon)

Congrats Sharon. Email me and I will get your markers in the mail

Go over to the Letraset blog this week, they have a competition going with lots of chances to win some markers.......

and go HERE to pick up some half price markers - don't forget the free shipping! 

Because of the interruption to normal crafting, I haven't been at my desk for weeks now, but found this card that I haven't shared with you before, or can't remember sharing anyway - I  love this little guy, a Nellie Snellen stamp coloured with ProMarkers. The base card is by Kanban, and the brads are Card Candi from Craftwork Cards

So apart from being ill, I haven't really got anything to report at all - I did make a brief dash into town on a grey January day, to pick up the essentials of life - three extra large boxes of tissues, pain killers, cough medicine....fun things like that. I was struck by the people scurrying by, shoulders hunched against the cold, and all wearing black or grey coats. It looked like a mass funeral service. Why is it that when the sky is blue and the sun is shining, we wear vivid bright colours that look quite harsh in the sunlight, when cool looking neutrals and white linen please the eye........and when the sky is grey and dark, out we trot in our black and grey. Honestly, I think the brightest thing in Solihull that day was my nose!
