Wow I have Reached 10,000 Hits. How About Some Blog Candy....

Wow, cannot believe I have reached 10,000 hits on my blog, and as that is a huge amount I thought I would give away some blog candy, but as that is a huge number, I thought I would make it a bit different this time. I have decided to launch a Card Challenge and everyone who enters a card for the challenge (or scrapbook layout if you are a scrapbooker, you will just have to be a bit imaginative on the sketch).... will be included in the draw. So.... get making girls as this is what the prize is....

Yep, it is a Stampin' Up! Saleabration Stamp Set.... you will not be able to buy these from Stampin' Up!, you would normally have to spend £45 to get it free, but all you need to do is enter a card into my challenge and place a link on your blog (if you have one) letting everyone know about this great competition.... and as for the Sketch, this is my first attempt at drawing one, so be kind to me....

And you have until 24th January to enter (as this is my little boys birthday).... so I look forward to seeing what you have made, please leave a comment and put a link to your card in with your comments so that I can take a look and leave you a comment back... if you dont have a blog no problem, send me an e-mail of your card instead at LindaLloyd@gmx.net. Sorry but this prize can only be shipped to UK residents...
I thought I would also show you a card I have made....

I'm not sure who makes the papers, they were just scraps I had left, the Image and Sentiment are from Stampin' Up! US and are called Refuge and Strength, the flowers are Prima and so are the Leaves, the Stamping was stamped in Old Olive Stampin' Up! ink.
Off to check on my little boy at the moment, he is running a temperature and is fine until the medicine starts wearing off, and he has a dentist appointment this afternoon, so hoping if I give him his Calpol just before then he will feel up to going as he has been complaining of a toothache recently, and if you miss an appointment with our Dentist it can take up to 2 months to make another one. Unfortunately I was unable to do our weekly shop this morning as I didn't want to drag him round the shops, so Daddy will have to do it this evening.... terrible shame!!! lol Unfortunately is was supposed to be my litle boys first night at Beavers this evening and it now looks like he wont be able to make it, and he has been waiting so long to join his brother there... lets hope all these bugs, colds and virus' retreat soon and everyone gets over their ailments.
Have a great day everyone, take care xx
