Blog Birthday!

Yesterday it was my blog's first birthday! It was only that I was looking for an old post that I ended up all the way back at the beginning. I can't believe I've only been doing this for a year... now I can't imagine life without blogging! It really is true...your friendhip does make my heart happy!

To celebrate, how about some Blog Candy?? I've never done this before, so we'll see how we go! Leave a comment on this post, and in a week (so, Sunday 10th February), I'll get one of the kids to draw a random number out of a hat. Post #1 will be 1, and so on. The winner will get a Sale-a-Bration Set (see them here ) You can choose your favourite one...hopefully you don't have them all already! Anyone in Australia can enter, but you can only enter once.... Good luck!

Sorry those outside Australia and SU! Demos are not eligible to enter...but feel free to leave a comment anyway ;-)

Oh, almost forgot...here's a quick and simple card made using the Friendship Blooms set. The stems have been made using "All in a Row". I stamped the trio of flowers in Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise and Marigold Morning, and applied Dazzling Diamonds glitter using the 2-way glue pen. The flowers have been cut out and popped up on Dimensionals.

  3. Well I have been viewing your blogs for only a short time but they are always fun and light hearted and I learn so much from your ideas. Can't wait to try the watercolour technique. Hopefully see you at the show.

  12. Your ability to create cards thinking outside the square (or rectangular) box that the sets come in is to be commended. Putting the 2 sets together that you used for this card is genius. Many more happy years of blogging. Margaret

  22. Dear Marelle
    I am only new to stamping up and card making. Discovered your website after purchasing my first stamping & papercraft magazine. Love your blog and all off your cards. Looks like you have loads of fun doing this. I also have become very excited about stamping up materials. Love all the colours and stamps. Just wished I had more time to spend on creating things with this wonderful relaxing craft.
