Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin . . .

This is going to be a long post, lots of stuff to tell you about and three craft pieces, each with their own challenges.

Remember when I told you about the amazing candy giveaway at Stamp It Crazy? I know a few of my buddies signed up to be followers, and if you were one of the first 50 sign-ups, you now have another chance to win! Yup, the lovely Barb is giving away another lot of 50 stamps. Get over there and check it out!

And Prima are having another giant giveaway! Still no word on what the news is going to be though :P
That's Right! Prima is giving away two more AMAZING prize packages in conjunction with our BIG SECRET!

We want EVERYONE to have a chance to win so we are changing the rules a bit.

* Please copy this write-up and link us on your blog, Facebook, or any other site that you frequent (please follow their TOU).
* Then post here with a link to your blog, Facebook or site post for your chance to win BIG with Prima!
* One US and one International winner will be chosen on Thursday, March 4th, 2010.

And, there's new store in town! Stitchy Bear Stamps is now open for business. I think you'll recognise some of the names in there, and several of my craft pieces use stamps from these lovely ladies, so pop along and see what loveliness is available. They're still stocking the shelves, but there's lots more to come :D

And now on to my makes.

This first piece is an ATC that uses an image from the DezinaWorld Accessories sheet and papers I did in PSP.
I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Midnight Madness Sketch 43
House Mouse - Anything but a card
Spoon Full of Sugar - beads
Papertake Weekly - Buttons bows brads and bling. You can use any combination of the ingredients, so I went for buttons bows beads and bling instead, just couldn't get any brads in there :P

This cute puppy tag was made for these challenges:
Tuesday Tagger - Curls and swirls
Cupcake Craft challenge - Round and round. As well as the spotty dog and the circle frame, two of the backing papers and the ribbon all have circles as well.
Paper Jewels challenge - Cute and girly
Quirky Crafts challenge - cute
And I followed the sketch over at Incy Wincy Designs.

And this last card uses the Gem digi stamp from Beary Dust and you can buy it here.
This one is for the following challenges:
Diva Coffee Break Desings #166. This one's a colour challenge, but I've just noticed they now have a new challenge up, so I guess this is too late. No rest for the blogging crafter :P
Lexi's Creations Challenge #8 - Anything goes
The Pink Elephant - Use green
Inky Impressions - use green
Our Creative Corner - sketch

Phew! Thanks for staying 'til the end :P
