Interested in Free Entry to Creative Stitches/Hobby Crafts Show at SECC?

Anyone interested in free entry?  I have just won free entry for two to the Creative Stitches / Hobby Crafts show on at the SECC, Glasgow next week & I'm unable to attend.  It was one of those 'tick the boxes' things in a magazine & usually I avoid the ones I can't go to but this time I forgot!  I have a letter which has to be presented at the entrance of the show & it's valid for any one of the 4 days (4-7 March) & admits 2 people.  I'll need to know in plenty of time to get the letter posted off to you & will give to the first person to contact me.  If you are interested send me an email.  or if not tell your friends!  Would be a shame for someone not to benefit from them!

Moving Day Card

Here's my entry for the challenge and giveaway over on Floral Fantasies .  The theme is "Moving" to celebrate the fact that Sir Stampalot have moved to a new shop.
Sassafras Sweet Marmalade paper; Heidi Grace Rub-ons; Printworks Collection Truck Stamp; Clare Curd Papermania Clear Stamps; Imaginisce Snag'em Calendar Stanp; Copics; Kraft Card.

This card also fits in nicely with the Polka Doodles week 5 challenge of paper piecing, as the central image has all been stamped several times & cut out & layered with 3d foam.

edit: just realised that this card is actually decoupaged not paper pieced.... lol!

Craftwork Cards Flowers

Here's my card for Craftwork Cards & their flowers challenge...

It's hard to tell from the photograph, but i used some of their elegant swirly embossed card for the background.  The silver swirl is cut from some of their Grape & Grey papers.  The flower petals are folded forward & stuck together with pop-up Glue dots for dimension.


Hanna Goth Stamp; Sakura purple glitter pen; The Stamp Connection barbed-wire twill tape; Circle of Friends striped paper, card blank, chipboard speech bubble, chipboard swirl & letter stickers.
