Exciting News & Blog Candy!!!!!

I've had some really exciting news today!! I've been asked by Helene from Alota stamps to be on her Design Team. How chuffed was I???? I've only just recently found these stamps from blog hopping but I love them already. So......
to celebrate I'm offering in the way of blog candy a brand new Alota stamp called Springtime Bugs , which Helene kindly gave me a duplicate of to do this. I'll also throw in some more images too. To give you an idea of what the stamp looks like coloured in I have made a card with my own Springtime Bugs stamp.

For the background I used Basic Grey papers and yellow cardstock that I embossed with a cuttlebug folder. The little sentiment is from Stampin Up and I used a Stampin Up punch to make the opening.




Papers:- Basic Grey, Oh Baby
Cuttlebug embossing folder:- Floral Fantasy
Punch:- Stampin Up word window punch
Sentiment:- Stampin Up warm words

So to have a chance of winning this stamp all you have to do is put up a post on your blog letting people know about the candy and then leave me a comment under this post. I will pick a winner randomly next Friday, 18th July.


Good luck!
