Hi everyone!

A late one from me, not only tonight but this should've been posted on Friday!  My shoulders have been playing up something serious and I didn't have my project finished on time.

Thanks to everyone who entered my blog candy, I'm astounded by the number of entries and by how many new followers I've got - big hello to you all and welcome!  It has now closed and I meant to be organised enough to draw my winners today, but I'm running a bit behind so I'll draw them in the next day or two.  Sorry for the delay!

So we have a new (ish!) challenge up on the Alphabet Challenge Blog and Shaz has been lovely and let me add my project a bit late, but Tammy has chosen a fab challenge for the next fortnight...

O for One Word Sentiment!

I decided to make this into a little project and made a box set of cards like this one...

I used a large "Thanks" stamp on white card with versamark and I used clear embossing powder over the word.  I then used some distress inks and blended the colour from the corner up over the word.  To make the word stand out a little more I used the same ink pad and a paint brush to give a shadow to the letters.

I then used a flower and swirl doohickey to make up the flowers in contrasting colours and added some tiny beads to the centres of the flowers.  Matching ribbon was also attached.  I added the ribbon to the inside as well.

I made a set using 4 different colours.

And I made a box to put them all in!

So please take a look at the Alphabet Challenge Blog to see the gorgeousness from the rest of the ladies (who were on time!) and have a go yourself!

I'd like to enter these cards in the following challenges:

All Sorts Challenge Blog; It's all about the sentiment
Charisma Cardz Challenges: One
Delightful Challenges: Make the cut
Less Is More: Use a rubber stamp

Thanks for looking!
