My Boy and a chance to win

I've been out all day today, shopping, lunch and booking my holiday. We booked the flights last week but couldn't book the hotels but that was all sorted today so I will be off to New England for the fall again. I just love it there as it is so beautiful and I will be celebrating a special Birthday there.

I'm bringing you another sneak peek of the gorgeous new Strawberry Kisses which will be available from Friday from Crafter's Companion. This is one of my fave images from the 12 stamp set.  This would be a great image to use for those difficult teen boy cards. The sentiment is also from the stamp set. I've used Spectrum Noirs to colour. The paper is from the CD. I used a new Sizzix embossing folder from Crafter's Companion and Core'dinations. A punched star, star gem and ribbon to finish. I would like to enter this into the anything goes challenge at Papertakeand favourite things at Dutch Dare. My favourite things are the colour scheme, stars, ribbon and making male cards which unlike a lot of people I love.
Would you like the chance to win a pad of Core'dinations? Then hop over to Leann's blog and leave her a comment.  Don't forget to enter my candy too by clicking on my candy page.

Two lovely surprises today. I am featured on the Crafter's Companion news, views and inspirations blog and I won 2 Saturated Canary digis in the Christmas mega challenge at Passion for Promarkers. I bought 2 of these recently and had a hard job choosing which to buy so am so pleased I will be able to get 2 more.
