Thank you for your lovely comments yesterday

I got some lovely comments the other day about leaving my DT job and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for them as they really lifted my spirits.

I also want to let you all know that I am selling both my Black Cat Cougar electric die cutter and my Big Shot Pro manual die cutter. They can be found on ebay here.

Good afternoon everyone

Hiya guys. Today I have a couple of reasons for my blog post. 
1 - who won my blog candy
2 - changes to my design team work
and 3 - a card to share

So first off I'm so sorry I'm late in picking my blog candy.  I've been recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and have been struggling with the symptoms.
The winner of my blog candy picked by my dogs Zara and Leah is .......

Sue N !!

Could you please contact me hun with your postal address for the goodies and your email address for the Teddy Bo gift voucher.

So onto reason number 2

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that I'm posting less and less. With the medication for my disc degeneration and now the fibro my body won't allow me sit at my desk for very long now so cards are getting made less and less.
Mike has also been going through the mill at work and has had to work more and more hours. You know that point when you want to say "stop the world I want to get off" well that time has come. Not the whole world but the craft world so I am on holiday from my DT responsibilities at Teddy Bo until at least January.

and finally number 3.

"Hanging" digi stamp by Doodle Dragon Studio's
Coloured with copic's for the frog and bullrushes
Glossy accents for the water droplets and waves, and pan pastel for the water.
First Edition Up up and away papers
Ribbon from stash
Circles cut with this die. Bargain set of 20 circle dies for £16.99

And I think thats all for now,

House Mouse Blog hop

Last month I was asked if I would like to be a guest designer for House Mouse during their blog hop.  Need I say I accepted???

The image we have all used is the House Mouse image of the little House Mouse Juggling leaves off the Joanna Sheen "Tumble" rubber stamp sheet and the papers we have all used are from the Summertime Designs freebie kit "Falling for fall" which you can all download for yourselves here.

The STAR prize for the blop hop is this amazing set

of all 4 Autumn House Mouse stamps

Each DT member also has a fab individual prize of pretty Autumnal ribbons/twine and a gorgeous selection of leafy charms so there are  9 – Yes….. 9 chances to win!!!

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is become 
a follower of the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog and then leave a comment on this blog hop post and on every member of 
the DT’s blogs on their blog hop post.   
On sunday 7th October each DT member will pick a winner by from their comments and announce their winner on their own blog on Monday 8th October.  

I will announce the lucky winner of the STAR prize on this challenge blog on Monday 8th October

Don't forget to check back on all the DT blogs to see if you're one of our lucky winners.

As I said before - there is a twist!  All week I will be showcasing other crafters cards who have all kindly agreed to make a creation using exactly the same stamp and papers as the rest of the DT.  

I hope you check back throughout the week to see all the different designs!  

I decided to do a photo frame with a twist and that was to have the "photo" done onto velum so that it could be used as a luminary.
I used the papers supplied (which are really lush) and die cut all my leaves from various papers from the kit.
Thank you to the lovely Brenda for lending me her leaf dies.
I hope you have fun on the blog hop and good luck with winning the amazing prizes on offer, and don't forget to click here to enter my Teddy Bo blog candy.
