5 years of blogging

Good morning! I can't believe really that this blog has been going for 5 years now! WOW!

I have had a lot of fun along the way as I've met many beautiful people from all over the world and made some amazing friends! I have (I believe) grown in my crafting/ colouring along the way and yet still have lots to learn!! :D I want to say a HUGE THANKS to all of you who've followed along or passed in and out over that time and especially to those who keep coming back!!

NEW LOOK I thought it was time for a newish blog look so have updated my blog style and am still working on what will be on the main page, ie. sidebar ... and might still edit some of the tabs.. but would love to know your thoughts .. what else does it need? What things should I or shouldn't I clutter the sidebar with this time??

CELEBRATING  with Party Hardy  - I made this card using Party Hardy... a sweet Saturated Canary stamp :) Isn't she scrummy!!! :D I normally don't go for so many colours at once but I  thought something different would be fun! :)

HERE is a piccy of the candy I've got together to celebrate 5 years of blogging .. some of my FAVOURITE stamps/ companies, a set of B91,B93,B95, B97 sketch markers AND a little texturising pack (blender and different rags) and the card pictured above!!

To enter read the terms in the Linky below and link yourself up :) I will draw a winner on the last night of this month ... Jan 31.
