Mel is being crafty and is going to share her talents and she is inviting her readers to do the same.
The deal is that I am meant to follow these rules:
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations
1. I make no guarentees that you will like what I make
2. What I create will be just for you
3. It will be done by next month
4. You will have no clue what it will be (actually neither do I yet lol)
5. The catch? Oh the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and offer it to the first 3 people that do the same thing on your blog. The first 3 people to do so and leave a comment telling me that they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift from me!
So who's in?
Check out this lady Bev's blog she has this amazing blog candy for give away - wow I SO want to win this one! Please I asked ever so nicely! Go check it out and leave a comment you never know it could be you! (ps then you can share with me lol)
I also received this award from Beck, thanks so much, my very first award how exciting is that!
Wonder if I should scrap that lol! I am meant to forward this on so if I stalk - opps mean watch your blog I will be picking someone soon!
I also made this card that I "lifted" the idea from the above "Bev's" blogg man this lady is so talented, but thought I did a pretty good job if I have to say so myself! Problem is how do you give them away they are so cute! I used one of the new Images that Embellish It now brings in "Whiff of Joy" they are just so nice to work with!
Well I think that's about it from me, have a great weekend - stay safe and hug your loved ones!

On Sunday I flew to Auckland to attend a day with Stacey from Spellbinders in the USA, what an amazing woman with a very supportive husband - this business has only been going for 4 years and what an amazing journey they have had so far!
We had some fantastic freebies on our desks and the desk was so nicely done compete with a gorgeous box done up with Easter eggs in - they had my attention right from then!
So off we started, learning some new techniques with the spellbinders dies and got to play with some that I never even knew existed. We made a lyout and some cards as well as just doing some of the techniques. This is the sample board of some of the cards and invites that were up for us to look at - hard to see from the photo but some of these were truley amazing!
We also got to see the new CHA release's wow i can tell you that I am really excited about these and will have my order in as soon as possible!
The day was over way to fast and onto a shuttle back to the airport were we had tea with some wonderful ladies from Nelson and a lady that I used to know back in my "crafty kid" days. We had a good look around the airport at what was on offer for tea first before we decided and can you believe it I brought a SALAD - and this was the MOST delicious salad EVER!! Roast Pumpkin, pine nuts and feta with a yummy most probably full of fat (like I care lol) dressing - seriously this was SO YUMMY!
I have some new dies that I brought back that people can have a bit of a play with, I can't wait to find some time to have a bit of a freestyle play myself!
So at the next crop I will demo some of these for you ladies.
Whiff Of Joy Stamps - Have landed!
Yay on Thursday I had our first shipment of Whiff of Joy Stamps arrive and boy are they flying out the door - already I have sold out of many of the designs, but never fear I will be re-ordering them again early this week here are a sample of some of the cute designs - I just love the dragon and boy stamps there are as well as the cute girlie ones and again I can't wait to have a bit of a play. Check out our web site for all of the images that we got in plus a link to the Whiff of Joy web site so if there is anything you would like ordered in let me know and I will get it on it's way with the next order.
Well that's about it from me, wishing you all a Happy Easter with LOADS of chocolate, and a safe break from work!
