3rd Blogoversary

It was 3 years ago today that I started blogging.... inspired by my googling to find out how to use ribbon creatively and falling in love with stamps particularly that sweet Tilda ... well that time has gone fairly quickly and yet looking back lots has happened... I have met so many wonderful people in this land of blog and count many GREAT friends!! I now have a huge amount of "must-read" blogs in my google reader and LOVE looking at what people have been up to! I read every day I don't always make it out of google to comment though!! I think I have grown heaps since I first started blogging my cards and it's a bit embarrasing but I went back to some of those firsts in my blogging ... PLEASE don't laugh too hard!!

one of the first cards I blogged...

The first challenge I entered with my first stamped/ coloured image... tiny I know and :P
My first digi I printed and coloured ... still have a soft spot for Dottie.. think I'll have to find her in my computer and wake her up!!

My first go colouring a Magnolia image..
My first attempt with Copics...

I dabbled in designing digis for a bit with my shop blog - Crafty Muse

My first Anya card... also my first DT card for The Stamp Spot :D
So I have progressed I think in my cardmaking + colouring skills... I've learnt lots, met lots of great people, bought lots of lovely stamps etc etc etc ... and to celebrate 3 years of blogging I am going to have a little candy competition... LEAVE me a comment for your chance to win:
Both Unicorn stamps from Spesch stamps... some PP ... some embellishments and a couple of other things I might throw in for fun! I'm not going to post a picture or get you to do anything except leave a comment here :)

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments and friendships over the last 3 years!!
