Joanna Sheen Challenge starts today!!!!!!!

Hiya everyone,

I am so pleased to share that the new Official Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog has now started.  The first challenge is "Christmas Wishes" so I'd love to see you all take part.  You can use any image but you will get an extra dip into the randomly picked prize draw if you do use a Joanna Sheen image.   There is a £30 gift voucher up for grabs for the one lucky winner as well as a DT picked Top 3.  Everyone who enters will also get chance to apply for a coveted Guest DT spot for March's Challenge.  For full details see the challenge blog.

My card has been made with one of my favourite House Mouse stamps that I got last year and never used as I'd just had Tayla.  This image is from a set called "opening presents".  I have coloured in my image with my promarkers and added some glossy accents to the eyes and nose.

The papers are from an 8x8 Deck the halls papermania set that I bought a wee while ago and had never used.  The MS holly border punch and the normal holly punch are both crafty bargains that I bought off crafty facebook friends.  Please forgive the not so good piccies.  My camera died so I've been using my mums and I've not quite got the hang of it Lol.

I would also like to wish my gorgeous little girl a very happy 1st birthday today - I love you sweetie!!!!

My Blog Hop Winner!!!!

As you may or may not know we held a week long blog hop last week to celebrate the launch so I can now annouce the winner of my ribbon prize is........drum roll please.......No 42 Lindyloo - AKA Linda.

  12. A fab card Paula - I don't normally go round commenting on all the DT entries in challenges I participate in, but on this occasion I really wanted to show my support.
    You are doing a great job - be careful not to take on too much though as the commenting etc involved in running a challenge can get out of hand. I was on the Pink Elephant team for a year or so and now do Bah! Humbug! You can end up on the computer more than anything else.
    Good luck and thanks for starting this.
