Secondly, Sheetload Shortcuts have a 'Frosty Giveaway' candy of 20 frosted card blanks and I can tell you from experience these are great quality! Another place to hop too!
Finally, I am long overdue in following up a PIF I was lucky enough to receive: The first 3 people who leave a comment on this post will receive some stamped images from me: I shall contact those whose comments are received first for their snail mail address so please make there's a contact from your blog/profile or some way to get in touch. I'm not sure how quickly I will get them out to you but I will do it. In turn you have to Pass It Forward (PIF) by posting and doing the same for 3 other people: A nice fun way to share some stash.

I know I am years behind everyone else with this but I finally got to try shrink plastic: What fun!
I used my Whiff of Joy Charlotte Angel stamp with black Stazon and then wasn't sure what to use for colour so used Whispers permanent markers except for the skin where I used a peach watercolour pencil (dry). Used a heat tool for the magical part and then added it to this bookmark. Need to buy more: It's such fun! This was frosted so I want to get some clear too.

This card follows the Friday Sketchers layout with a Penny Black stamp coloured with H2Os and using a felt and paper flower with button from Making Memories Blossoms & Buttons: 'Lemonade' with some silver thread. The image was shaped with my new Nestabilities rounded rectangles. Love them! Yes, I know they were supposed to be for Christmas but....

I shall be back soon with some stamping: I have received some bought and won stamps that I am itching to use and not getting a chance at the moment so I shall be back soon, and with a long overdue PIF too! Hope you are enjoying the holiday preparations :)

Given that the Téléthon charity event, which I sold 100++ cards at last year, starts on Friday, and that this year I’m doing 2 workshops as well: Conversation between my husband and I after he returned a few moments ago from the chocolate shop that is going to take some of my cards ...
DH: Just been to see Sylvie...
Me: Oh Yes. What did she say?
DH: She’d like a basket of Joyaux Noël, Bonne Année, Meilleurs Vœux, and Joyeux Anniversaire cards.
Me : Oh, Christmas as well. (More unusual in France). Did you say when we’d take them?
DH(looks sheepish): Yes, tomorrow.
