These are the cards I have made to go with the PIF Candy, I used papers that match each of the packs, and an Elzybells stamp ~ hope they like them.
I got my stamps from Sugarnellie today for my spot as guest designer! What a lovely package it was too! I got 3 from the soft centres collection ~ Braveheart, Pringle and Cheddar, they can be found here at funkykits, and 2 from the Sweet Ebony collection ~ Carefree and Strawberry Tea, they can be found here at funky kits. I also got some very sweet made with love charms and some coloured card stock ~ aren't I lucky!

So now its my turn and I have the three sets of PIF Candy shown below to give to the first three people to leave a comment on this post, each of you will receive one of these little packs of papers and embellishments.
The rules for PIF are that in return for my PIF Candy you must then do the same, that is arrange Candy for three lucky bloggers and then they do the same, hence the name 'Pass It Forward'

As you have seen from my other cards on my blog I love buttons and use them in the centre of flowers on a lot of my cards, this time I went button crazy and used them all down the side of this page.
* Penny Black Water Lily Skiing
* Prima Hydrangea flowers
* Buttons from various suppliers
* Papers from a download kit by A Langpap
I'm going to be busy this week as I have a short deadline for a magazine page I have to write and make items for, so sorry if I neglect my blog. I'm so nervous about doing it and still cant quite believe it!

Anyway back to the card. I have used the new Tilda with Rose (I think its called that) stamp from Magnolia, she is soooo sweet! I coloured her with whispers pens and am really pleased at how the colouring turned out, normally I have such trouble colouring in hair but I think this one looks ok. The papers are from Summertime Designs as always! Flowers are Prima Hydrangeas, swirls are from Sizzix Swirly die, sentiment is from bekahs-escape2scrapland and says 'friends are kisses blown to us by angles'.
I may have some exciting news coming up after a very surprising email from a craft magazine, but I'll let you know about that if and when something happens- watch this space!
Funky Fairy's and Juliet have some blog candy up for grabs, as does Pauline and for her challenge you have to make a card to celebrate something so this card is to celebrate friendship.

I have still not done the next two months of my calendar yet, I have made a start on March but I just cant seem to get it right, I'll have to have a think about it and come back to it.
In the mean time here is another Christmas card I've made.
The image is from Penny Black and is called Wishes For Kisses. The papers are are from Shabby Princess 2006 Seasonal Sampler, circles are cut with nestabilities dies. The base flowers I made myself and added primas and papermania ones on top. The ribbon in the corner has a pearly bead thing on top under the bow.
I got this award from Laura and Caroline today, thanks for thinking of me girls its very nice of you.
There is also some lovely blog candy on Natalie's blog so go check it out.

I have made this card for the a spoon full of sugar sketch challenge
I used papers from the nitwits Winter Wishes Collection. The image is from PCCrafter Cold Hands Warm Heart2 collection by Laurie Furnell, watercoloured with whispers pens and mounted on nesties scalloped and plain circles.
I also just want to say how impressed I am with the service from the glitter pot I ordered a papermania acrylic album yesterday lunch time and its arrived this morning! I am so surprised its here already! I'm going to use the album to make a calendar for myself, and will upload pictures when I complete each month.

The next one has been made with papers from Summertime Designs Winter Gifts Kit, snowflakes are from xcut punches and the Christmas tree button is from doodlebug.
I've been tagged again, this time by Gayle, Miranda and Erin since I was not tagged that long ago by Pauline I will direct you to the post here I'm really not that interesting honest! Sorry but I can't think of 7 more things about me, let alone interesting things!
My mum has lent me her camera so until I can convince Tristan (my fella) to let me have his one again I will commandeer hers, so I can hopefully keep my blog up to date.

I hope He doesn't take offence, and I'm pretty sure he wont. It says 'you know you're old when...' '...there are more candles than cake!'
The stamp is called Murry with cake and is from Rubberneckers. The sentiment is computer generated, card and paper are from DCWV Scrapbook kit in a stack- birthday. Letters are traced onto card from chipboard and glittered with sugar coating from doodlebug.
Once again I must say thank you to everyone who left comments on my last card, its much appreciated! x
