I'm 1 today!! Come and help me celebrate....

For my TBBM2 Blogaversary Giveaway click Here

Hi....okay not strictly me but my blog is 1 years old today! I would just like to welcome all my followers new and old and thank you for your kind comments and visits. I do appreciate each and everyone of you.

I know in previous posts I have told you how nervous I was of blogging and I won't bore you with those details again,but if you asked me in the beginning if I would still be here 1 year later,I would  have thought not.

My post is a bit wordy,but bear with me as I do have a project and candy to share.

I LOVE 3d! So the new TBBM2 is already a confirmed favourite and the scoring tool makes it all so easy. I made a playing card box and although for it to be lucky it should be a four leaf clover and not a shamrock.. I exercised creative!!

TBBM2 - playing card box cut at 6"
This fits a standard deck of playing cards really neatly
PDDU - Shamrock  cut at 2" real dial
K & Co paper
Sentiment - My Creative Time
Kraft card candi
Button & Lace
ink + 3d foam
Crackle glaze

I am entering this over at BBTB2 - use a Shamrock and the colour green
FCCB - use a Shamrock or the colour green
Little Scrap Pieces - use a button and a bow
I Came,I saw,I created - colour challenge - green,mustard,chocolate

I have 2 lots of candy to giveaway today and for 2 very different reasons.

I am the least technological person you will probably encounter and initially started my blog to show some of my designs for classes I was about to run.

When I got really brave I started entering challenges, and the encouragement I received from the DT of those challenges really helped my confidence. We all wonder at times if certain things we make are worth sharing?! TreeFrog you made my day!

I am lucky enough to be on an amazing Design Team at My Craft Spot and have been on 2 other wonderful DT's at Celebrate the Occasion and Cindy's Scraptastic Designs.

My first blog candy is open to everyone,you don't have to be a follower of my blog I just want to offer  a little something  to someone who takes the time to leave me a comment on this post!  Certain DT members from certain challenge sites always take the time to comment and I really appreciate that too.                   
 Card candi is attached with  3d foam and you can stamp on it  too. Let me know if you prefer kraft or iced gems(pastel). A random winner will be announced Saturday and you will have a week to claim your prize.

My next blog candy is especially for one of my lovely followers.

Trendy Twine Chocolate Duo from My Craft Spot.

For a chance to win just leave me a comment on this post,tell me you are a follower and you have until midnight Friday GMT to enter.
I will announce the winner Saturday and you will have a week to claim your prize.

Thanks for all your support.
