Candy winners and a Day Trip to Paris



Morning Peeps, hope all your Christmas plans are coming together. I did a mad rush to Tesco and M&S earlier this week and if that's anything to go by it's going to be manic come next Monday, anyone would think the shops were closing for a month instead of a couple of days at most.

It's our mid way posts at Penny Black and Stamping Sensations today and I have my PB share above using one of my current favourites Penny Black 40-217 Venetian Summer........yes I know she's in Paris. I stamped, cut out and coloured just the lady from the Venetian scene and placed her against a masked Parisian stenciled background using Pan Pastels..........you see she is on a trip to Paris. The sentiment is the bottom line of PB 3851E Blessings.

Now for the winner of my candy and I am so pleased to say that the name out of the draw is..................

Rachel in the post

I think it must have been fate, because those of you that know her will be aware she and her family have been going through a pretty torrid time of it since early September, so I hope this little win will give her something to take her mind off her worries for an hour or so. If you could mail me your postal details I will get your goodies in the post Rachel.

And as it's Christmas I have drawn another name and will be sending some pretty ribbons to........

Kitty in Croatia - in the post

Please mail me with your full name and postal addy so I can post your ribbons Kitty.

Have a good Thursday.
