Win an original Card by Valscraftroom!

I saw this on Oma's blog
and was able to get in the first five! I thought it looked like fun so I thought that I would do it too! The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you!

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make --- but I hope you do!
2- What I create will be just for you --- one of a kind!
3- It'll be done sometime this year (most likely it will be in the next month.).
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. Well, a pretty good bet it will be made of paper!
5-The catch?
Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog!The first 5 people to leave a comment win a handmade card or gift (or both! - can we say Candy?) by me!

Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!

So....who will be the first 5 people????? Please??? 5????Ready, set GO!

who will the first five be?

C'mon now, don't be shy!

I have a new award

I have been given this award by Chris (wellnifty) it's for giving lovely comments to people's blogs. I must admit I don't leave as many as I ought, but I do like to see other people's work and see the lovely ideas they put into practice.I have to choose 5 people........ I don't get many people leave me comments but to the one's that do here is your award.

The first one is Oma, I don't know how you found my blog but thank you so much for your lovely comments. Your cards are great too, I've added yours to the blogs I follow.

Next is Joolse, she has been really helpful of late and her cards are well worth a look.

Next is Budge (Sylv) another of the ladies from the imag-e-nation forum, pay a visit, you wont be disappointed

I know the next two have had this award but how can I leave them out when they are the two that leave the most comments? And lovely they always are.......if that makes sense

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbon of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.I would like to pass this onto the following people for their friendship and Inspiration.
I would like to pass this award to... A lady I love to follow, her cards are absolutely magic. aka Chris, She has made a couple of beautiful art deco cards recently that are well worth a look, lots and lots of inspiration here. This lady cheers me up no end when I read her blog, she is never down and her cards suit her personality too. Karen's blog.........What can I say, this lady is so talented. I never tire of looking at her creations. They are always so perfect..........the colouring........accessories.......ribbons and original ideas.

All the above ladies I class as internet friends and I know for a fact if I needed anything to do with crafting these ladies would do their best to help me out. Thanks you so much for being there.

I've received an award

Just received this award from Karen. Thank you, very much appreciated. The only rules are you must send this to five other people, but as they more than likelyhave all got one by now, I'll award to anyone who visits my blog

Last two I hope!!

One for hubby and the other is a late order. I wanted to edge them with lace and as I didn't have any, I thought I would try with paper lace................cut with a Fiskars lace punch. It shows up better on the pink heart!

A couple more Valentines and a Wedding Card

One Valentines Card for a male and another for a 17 yr old which I think needed a younger image. This one is A4.

The Wedding card's background image is printed onto vellum and stuck to the card at each corner. The small pieces of dst is then hidden by the gems.
