Whoo Hooo I won a challenge


I won a weekly challenge over on The Crafty Pad I entered my Race for Life card. As a prize the winner can pick any stamp they like from the ranges for sale on the blog, so I picked out a great stamp called Albert Snoozing who will be wonderful for a male card. He also has the sentiment stamp with him which is amusing to put on a man's card. He arrived today so thanks very much Debbie.

There are further new ranges of stamps at The Crafty Pad being revealed now and they look good. I love the sheep, the mice are cute too.


In May I attended a DoCrafts Demo at our local arts and craft shop with Mum. It was mid morning so hadn't been going for long and they had already sold out of the goody bag and the butterfly punch. I was told I could order both from the shop so I did. A few days later I saw both for sale online, but didn't order as I had ordered from the shop. Weeks went by, I went in and asked three weekends running, and finaly they rang me to say both were discontinued and they couldn't get them.

I have since managed to find the goody bag from Madaboutcards, but I paid postage for that and the black and white kit by Papermania though the latter was a very good price. Of course the day I received my order, which was very quickly, Madaboutcards announced a 10% off everything, isn't that just typical!

I cannot find the butterfly punch. I have read that although it was a limited edition DoCrafts are trying to find a new manufacturer to make more. I have been pointed towards one at Studio Cards, which is the same price but yellow in colour, and with £5 postage is £13 nearly for the punch which was £7.99 in the shop - if they had one! The Studio Cards one looks the same but is the wrong way round, the X cut one cut from the right so you could use it on the edge of a card blank, if you do this with the Studio Cards version the butterfly will be upside down. I have found one on Ebay from China that is the right way round and will cost £14. Do I go for that or wait I wonder? I have heard that people have seen the X Cut one on Ebay for £35 - no way!

Blog Candy.

I am going to go for it and draw out blog candy winners today, so check back later to see who won.
