A quick catch up

Well that's another 4 weeks flitted by, who turned on the fast forward button? I'd be grateful if you turned it off now please.

There's lots happening over at Polka Doodles at the mo.  They've just hit 1000 followers on the challenge blog, and to celebrate they are giving away blog candy this week.  They've also started up the Diddydoodles challenge blog for children, so if you have a budding crafting son/grandson or daughter/granddaughter then why not steer them in that direction for a little fun and inspiration.

The challenge over at PD is a sketch this week.  We know how you all love sketches so why not have a go, you never know!

This was my card for last weeks challenge, all the papers are from the Pretty Sweet CD and I used several spellbinder dies  to make this pretty card.  The gorgeous ribbon is from the Polka Doodles shop, I think it's one of my favourite ones to date.
And now some Making Cards Magazine news.  They have another special issue 'Say it with flowers' on the way, and you can now pre-order it here.  I've made some of the projects and you'll definitely find plenty of inspiration in it.  In Feb's edition there is also an extra free gift in the form of a sheet of peeloffs to match the free papers, which are now perforated for easier removal.  And I've saved the best till last, the Making Cards Lucky numbers.  Each month one reader can win a £50 spending spree at their local craft shop. Such a shame I can't entre, I wouldn't mind a bit of a spending spree myself.
