A Catch Up & A Card (& Long Over Due Winners!!)

We're back!!!!  I can't tell you how good it felt to make this card after 3 weeks away from my craft table...

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Fabulous Fuchsias' / Tools - Clearly Besotted Dies 'Fabulous Fuchsias Die Collection', 'Fabulous Fuchsias Branch & Leaves Die' & 'Trellis Die'

It was so wonderful having three weeks with the family away from 'work' that for a fleeting second I actually considered giving it all up but needless to say that passed very quickly as I reminded myself how (ungrateful and spolied I am for a start LOL) incredibly lucky I am to have such a fantastic job where I get to engage with such fantastic people (yes, you!) :D

HUGE apologies for the unacceptable delay in announcing the winners for the June (yes, June!!) Challenge and July Giveaway.  I am aware of the time, effort and goodwill put into entering challenges and leaving comments and therefore have no excuse for my shameful disregard!  Instead, I have increased the prize from £30 to £40 e-giftcard:


Before I go, I must say a big thank you to my baby sister (she's 15 years younger than me!) Jenny, who held the fort marvelously while I was away!  For those of you who don't know, Jenny also designs all of our stamp sets (unless otherwise specified) so without her there would be no Clearly Besotted Stamps!


Thank you for still dropping by even though I have been slacking - you really are the best!  Enjoy the rest of your week :) xoxo

So glad you didn't decide to quit. What would we do without Clearly Besotted Stamps!
And isn't it great to have a baby sister. Mine is 18 years younger than me (same parents) and she is fantastic.
