Oyster Stamps Blog Hop - The Winners are....

Morning all, I have the names of The Oyster Stamp Blog Hop ....
Neet, another DT member, went through all the blog comments!
Well done Neet... This is what she posted on her blog;
"Oyster Stamps Blog Hop - Winners
Well, it took me ages to go through the blogs and work out who had entered every single one of them. Almost 30 of you had achieved this so I spoke to Graham just now, who is at a show in Doncaster, and asked him for two numbers.
The list I had was then searched for names corresponding to those numbers and
Yvonne (Life's Too Short for Working) and
Anita    (itsamistry Design Studio)
Were the winners.
Congratulations girls you can arrange for your prizes to be sent to you by contacting Tracey on Monday or through the week."
Now for some information regarding the card I'm sharing with you today.
Penny Black Stamps, Distress Inks and a full moon..... from an idea that was posted on the Penny Black FB page and linked to this fantastic blog!
I just had to have a go as I loved the moon! The 'Delicate Florals' are available from Oyster Stamps.
Thank you for looking today and for all the lovely comments you leave for me X.

Journal Cover... Finnabair Style!

Hello everyone. Second post of the day!  I went to a Workshop last weekend and met the fabulous Finnabair, who shared some of her superb skills and techniques with us. It was the most amazing time. I loved every minute. Thank you, to all my crafty friends for helping me enjoy the day and to Sue Tucker who organised everything for us.

I was so inspired by the class, that I created the Journal Cover you see here, when I went home. It took me a whole day but that included a 'raid' on the charity shops in the local town to buy broken jewellery, old brooches and other bits and bobs!

Thank you for 'popping' back again to look at my Blog and many thanks for your emails and comments.
Very much appreciated
