Life is a journey.............

Hi all
My post today starts with some very exciting news about an event by Brenda over at Floral Fantasies.

On the 1st February there will be a very special ‘One Off Challenge’………with some rather special candy as the main prize. No ordinary candy, but a really serious piece of equipment that all of us would love to have in our craft rooms.

There will be some sneak peeks of the prizes on offer over the next three weeks........yes ‘prizes’ because as well as the main challenge prize, there will be runners up prizes and a Blog Hop with prizes to be won at each stopping point.

They need help to spread the word and make this as much fun as possible for everyone ........and there is even a prize for doing that. Does this all sound fun or what ? I'm sure you will all want to get involved and join in so head off to Brenda's blog now and get your name down for the first draw. All the information you will need to join in will be found there.

Back to reality now and my card today uses some of the papers that leapt into my basket yesterday when I was at Cardcraft Plus. They seemed to fit perfectly with the theme over at Simon Says Stamp which is Shabby Chic. I also used the great sketch over at Papertake Weekly.

The stamp is one I have not used for a while called Gretel from CC Designs. I have coloured her with copics and this time I have shown the ones I used underneath. I am always amazed at how many different colours I use just for a pretty simple stamp and I have just noticed I missed two out!!

Recipe: Stamps: CC Designs - Swiss Pixies - Gretel. Papers: Bobunny - Flutter butter breeze, Flutter butter cutouts. Cardcraft Plus - Brown Pearl card. Butterfly embossing plate from Bringing Crafts-Too you. Stardust stickles everywhere!!

Thanks for looking
