My 1000th Post!

When I first started my blog about two and a half years ago, I didn't realise just how addicted I'd become to it...I post a card most days now, and this is my 1000th post!!!


So, to celebrate, I'm going to put a few bits and pieces together for a mini candy...but I've not been organised enought to have done that yet, so the lucky winner will receive a 'mystery' parcel...but who doesn't like surprises??? So, if you'd like to be included in the draw, please pop the photo above in your sidebar, along with a link back to me, and add your name to the linky widget at the bottom of this post. I'll use choose the random winner on Friday April 8th.

Ok, so on to my card...I've used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps...'Dream a Dream'. which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are all from the 'Marjolaine' pad by BasicGrey, and I disressed all of the edges using my distressing tool. The embossing was done using my Cuttlebug 'Kassie's Brocade' folder, and the blue & white string is recycled from my flatmate's weekly veg box!
