Marie Antionette, candy winner and some exciting news

I treated myself to a new Kraftin' Kimmie stamp from Quixotic Paperie and couldn't wait to use her. I just love these quirky images and this one is Marie Antionette. I used my fave colour on this one. I cut the Sizzix corner swirl twice and cut one up to use under the Wild Orchid flowers and pins.
Creative Craft Glamour puss
Passion for Promarkers Vintage/shabby chic (Marie Antionette is pretty vintage, isn't she)
I love Promarkers Pearls and swirls
Everybody Art Friends
Stamp, scrap and doodle Saturday Open
Stamptacular At least 5 layers

And my exciting news is that I have been invited to join the DT at Crafter's Companion. This means not only the monthly challenge but also making samples for their television launches. Fame at last, lol! The invitation came completely out of the blue and I still can't quite believe it.

Thanks to all of you who entered my candy and welcome to my new followers. I hope you enjoy visiting my blog and continue to follow me. And the moment you have all been waiting for is the candy winner. This proves that it doesn't matter whether you are one of the first or last to enter as random org chose, drum roll, please,

Congratulations dear, please e-mail me your address. If you have any spare crafting stash Leigh will put it to good use for charity.
