A card, candy and the wonderful Tina...

I was thrilled today to find that Tina of Yummy , Scrummy, Create blog had chosen me as one of the people to receive a trinket box to decorate: I can't wait to get it and make something (hopefully) nice. Tina has also made some gorgeous boxes to give plant gifts in so if you don't know her blog I really recommend it. I get the email updates so I don't miss a thing!

Well, if you've read the post below, you'll appreciate that I haven't felt very sociable lately although I have been keeping busy doing lots of decoupage cards. I also made this one for a friend's 40th (you'd never have guessed!) using the new Papermania 'The Big One' paper pack, Colorbox chalk ink, adhesive gems and some ribbon pieces. Hope you can see it's 3-fold and I wrote the greeting on the fold back part.There seems to be a lot of candy on offer at the moment: I haven't been hopping much but I subscribe to Claudia's blog, Pretty Pressings, and Magnolia have given her an incredible candy to offer which will be split for 6 lucky winners.
One of the blogs I follow is Jennifer's Sweet Treats for the wonderful things she does with Cuttlebug embossing. She has reached 200000 hits so is celebrating with 3 prizes!
Another I follow is Donalda who is also celebrating with candy.
And I've discovered Zoe's blog which is lovely - like her style - and celebrating its blogoversary.
