Lucky, lucky Me!

Hello there my crafty friends,

I've followed the blog over at 'Crafty Individuals' for a long while now as I love their stamp range and art work.  A couple of weeks ago, I was just browsing through their latest blog posts when I noticed that they had a new stamp release and a blog candy give away. All you had to do was to leave a comment about the new stamps and then two very lucky winners would be selected at random. Much to my surprise, I turned out to be one of the winners and Dora was the other.  I have to say a really big 'Thank you' to Dora, as I had actually missed the post saying that I'd won and it was Dora who so very kindly let me know so that I wouldn't miss out on the prize, what a lovely lady! If you get a chance, then pop over and take a look at Dora's blog as she make some fabulous cards and has her own range of Digi stamps.

Right then, here's what we both won:

I'm absolutely thrilled to bits with these fabulous stamps and I want to say another really big thank you to Jean Hardy and Malcolm Noble over at Crafty Individuals so being so kind and generous as to give away two sets of their very latest stamps. It's hard to pick a favourite but I'm definitely in love with 'Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses'.  That's the one that you can see with the little boy on, all ready with his bucket and spade for a day at the seaside. Here's the card that I've made with that stamp set:

Here's another card that I've made using the Typewriter stamp.

Due to unexpected family commitments, I haven't had as much time as I would have like to play with these new stamps so I'm only posting a couple for now.  I thought it would be best to do this and to thank all of the people involved before too much time had passed but I'll be back with cards that I make with the other stamps very shortly, hopefully on Darnell's NUBUS challenge which starts on the 27th of August.

I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:

Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 243
Country View Challenges - Hot Summer Days

Thank you for visiting today :) x
