Dream Valley Challenge 8 - Stamp Something xxx

Good afternoon my lovelies

Hope all is well in blogland this wet and wild morning?? Did you all have a lovely weekend?? Do anything nice?? I did, I did heee!

I went to the Ideal Home Show at the SECC and meet the lovely Greg Wallace! He is a wee sweetie! Was too awe struck I couldn't get me phone out my bag quick enough for a quick wee picture! Sad?? Yes I am! The show its self was rather rubbish! Was full of people trying to sell Gas and Electricity(cant remember seeing that many stalls last time) plus a whole section full of make-up, jewellery and ladies stuff! Weird I thought for a Home Show!
After the show we came home, took the dog out and decided to go to the cinema to see The Hangover 2! It was so funny!! I loved the 1st and couldn't wait to see this and wasn't disappointed! The 1st was still the better but well worth a viewing!

Ok enough of me, I have sad news too!!
My lovely lil Dt Fi is leaving us, sob, sob, sob! She is going to be running a wee Challenge blog herself now and I wish her all the LUCK with it! Going miss you sweetie!

Over on Dream Valley Challenges we're also having a wee Dt call, so if you can make a creation every 2 weeks and spare time to comment, check out the details here!

Now on to the Challenge! Another easy one!


That simple! No digi's allowed only the inky stamps in this fortnights challenge! As usual you can enter any type of creation you like form Altered art to a Card, Scrap page to a piece of jewellery! As long as its stamped it can enter!

We have TWO yes 2 amazing sponsors this time!


Papermaze is a small, family mail order business based on a farm in rural Suffolk.
I have been making cards for years, cross-stitched ones at first until a friend introduced me to rubber stamping. Paper has always been my passion and would be the first thing I looked for in craft shops in my continuing search for something different. This led me to discover scrapbooking, so now I'm hooked on that too!

The idea for the website was born after the birth of our third child, and a desire to do something different from teaching, that would enable me to work from home. After months of research, we went live in October 2003.

We pride ourselves on our fast and friendly service. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, suggestions or comments about our site.

You can win your self a wee £10 voucher for their amazing shop!

And secondly

We are a small Scottish company dedicated to bringing you the cutest of stamps for all your card making needs! We are the sole online retailers for Sugar Nellie Stamps - with new designs being premiered regularly!
We are also adding many more brands of stamps to our catalogue for all you stamp addicts!
We can be contacted Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning's on 01343 548864 or by e-mailing
