Amazing Giveaway

I'm so excited about today's post.  The fabulous people at CSN Stores have contacted me to offer a give-away for one of my lovely readers, for a £30 gift certificate to use in any of their UK websites.

CSN Stores have amazing online stores where you can find anything from wardrobes and lighting, through to my favourite site where they sell cookware and baking products.  Although I don't bake often, as I'd eat everything, I am rather partial to this glorious cake stand, any cakes would look beautiful on it.

To be in with a chance of winning the £30 voucher just leave a comment below.  I'd love to know what you'd be looking to spend your voucher on if you were the winner.  The winner will be drawn at random on Monday 27th September.
Please feel free to tell your friends about the draw, anyone can enter.
With all that excitement it's got my creative juices flowing and here's a couple of cards.  This one was inspired by challenges at:
Daring Cardmakers - All up in the air
Crazy 4 Challenges - sketch challenge
Sweet stampin' challenge - stitching - you may have to look very closely but I promise you it's there around the edge of dotted paper
A Spoonful of sugar - anything goes
Pink Elephant - recipe, aqua, designer paper, embellishment

Supplies used on this card include:
Balloons & buttons - Kaisercraft chipboard
Patterned paper - PTI
Stamp - PTI

Next up this simple card but I'm loving the texture on it.  It was inspired by challenges at:
Clean & Simple - FTL 108
Cardvaarks - clean and simple
The Crafty Pad - embossing

For this card I've used
Nestabilities - circles
Cuttlebug embossing folders
Ink - ocean tides PTI
Buttons - Kaisercraft chipboard

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to leave a comment enter the prize draw for a gift voucher at CSN stores.  Good luck.

Great cards, found your blog through Debbie (Country Heart and Home)and Im so glad to have found you - a girl can never have too much inspiration.

Great giveaway too - if I won it'd be a struggle between that cakestand or some storage containers

citaborca said...

Am new to blogging, and have only just found your blog. Love it. If I were to win the voucher, I would have to buy a cupcake stand. I am totally addicted to cupcakes.........and one day I might even be brave enough to bake some to go on a stand!

patriziawithaz said...

Came to your fab blog from Country Heart and Home and the lovely Debbie. I have been searching web land for a reliable UK based store of all things shabby chic - in particular painted furniture (big and small) and this looks just like the place I wanted !! If I was lucking enough to win I'd put towards the Alterton Montpellier Lovebird Wall Mirror - I love it x

Love the Cuttlebug card - and it's made me realise it's almost two weeks since I did any crafting. Must get my backside off this computer chair and go and dust off my 'bug.

I think i would have to get my husband a proper casserole dish - ideally a Le creuset one, but we'll have to see! He is cooking up a storm lately, so i think it would be silly not to encourage him:)
