A 2 challenge card and my blog candy news

First - the candy news. I will be having 3 lots of candy giveaways over the next few weeks.
  • The first will be for my blogoversary (I missed that on 7 Sept) but I need one more item to add to that candy before I take a picture, so I'll probably post it some time tomorrow.
  • Next weekend I'll post some more candy because I've just noticed I've reached 10,000 unique hits on this blog.
  • Then, the weekend after that I'll post some more candy because it will be fast approaching my 50th birthday. For some perverse reason I'm looking forward to this one, so I'm going to celebrate with you all.

Right, on to my 2 challenge card. This one is for
Inspirational Card Sketches No 33 (the sketch layout)
Lili of the Valley - Colour challenge - Orange, Green and Brown.
I adore this Whimsy Princess Coach stamp because I think it is so pretty. It was the perfect image to use for the colours picked by LOTV this week. The papers are from bearly mine again(Sorry, I just can't get enough of these).

Well, my first, almost normal weekend day for a few months is nearly over now. I've been busy trying to get round to all your blogs (spent 5 hours commenting today!). If I haven't reached you yet, please be patient because I have 4 months worth of catching up to do...and I will get around to visiting you soon.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
