Fifth Avenue and Squiggle News

Well it's another dull, cool and rainy Saturday so the washing is in the tumble dryer. I think we had Summer in April. Noticed the Autumn clothes are starting to come into the shops. Soon be Christmas, lol!!!

I was lucky enought to win this gorgeous 5th Avenue Simply Sassy stamp and just had to ink her up and use her in blue for the Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge. The papers are Papermania Blueberry Pie. I wanted to make this a card with lots of texture so added a gold doily, lace, sparkly ribbon, Fizzy Moon flowers and buttons and used an MS border punch, one I haven't used for a while.
Challenges:
The Sugar Bowl Kiki's sketch
Allsorts Free and Easy
Sparkles Forum Elegant and lace
Paperplay Ribbon, lace and buttons

I also have some great news that Squiggle Stamps have realaunched their challenges which will now be fortnightly with a chance to win a £10 voucher and a GDT spot. The new challenge is Christmas and with so many other Christmas challenges around (including Winter Wonderland) there's no better time to be making Christmas cards. There are reductions on all Squiggle Christmas digis too and there are even a couple of fab freebies in the Squiggle store. So with freebies on offer and the chance of a great prize I hope to see many of you entering this challenge. Don't forget my candy of £10 to spend at Squiggle Stamps too, which is the top post on my blog.

I hope the weather is better where you are and you have a lovely weekend. I'm out and about visiting this weekend but will catch up with you as soon as I can.
