More winners....

Happy Monday everyone. I totally forgot to draw the winner of the Craftwork Cards bundle on Wednesday - the number that came out of the random number generator was


Congrats Sandra, email me with your details and I will get your package in the post to you

The winner of the Neutral flexmarkers (Kraftychick) has not claimed her prize, she doesn't have a blog so I have no way of getting in touch with her. If she doesn't get in touch by Wednesday evening, I will draw another winner from all those who left a comment on that post

On to today's card, I have had this stamp for ages and never used it, it cried out for a bit of paper piecing - I used the Stonewash paper stack by The Paper Studio which I got from Hobby Lobby. I added a few button brads and a bit of stitching - I like stitching on men's cards, it adds an extra touch without being flowery or glittery! 

The stamp is called Gent's waistcoat, and is by Funstamps, a UK company - I know someone will want to know the make, and I can't tell you the hassle I had - considering I only used the stamp yesterday you wouldn't think that it could vanish. Nowhere to be seen, I turned my space upside down. I eventually found it lurking behind the door. The search confirmed a few things:

I am a very messy worker
I have far too much stuff
Behind the door needs to be dusted occasionally 

We had a glorious day on Saturday, sunny and really quite warm - not warm enough to warrant shorts and flip flops, but warm enough to sit outside and enjoy it. I decided to power wash the patio, a job I love doing, it's so satisfying seeing all that winter grime lift right off. It does mean that I needed a long shower afterwards -  and managed to get every single item of clothing I was wearing both filthy and soaking wet - never mind, at least the patio was clean, even if I wasn't

See you tomorrow x


  1. Congratulations Sandra H! Nice card Enfys, and you sound just like me, things I just used vanish and cannot be found, hours of searching later and they are sitting smirking at me where I looked first!
