Ribbon Girl Give-Away and a Toot...Toot

Hi folks...home safe and sound after a mega clocking up the miles weekend and the old body it does protest...the only thing that seems to be working is the old memory...hang onto your galluses folks...Mrs Forgetful has actually remembered it's Monday and the first Monday of the month to boot and that means it's time for my...
MONTHLY MONDAY RIBBON GIRL GIVE-AWAY
a chance to win....
to spend over at The Ribbon Girl online store where you'll find loads and loads of gorgeous ribbons...flowers...buttons...charms and delicious new goodies to add to your crafty stash and the lucky winner will also get a copy of this month's Craft Stamper from me...check out the free cool stamps...

all you have to do is leave your name with Mr Inklinz before 8pm on Sunday 13th October and I'll announce the winner bright and early on Monday morning.  Thanks again to the lovely Mary and Andrea...the Ribbon Girls for their generosity.
Time for a little toot...toot announcement...here's your chance to win some more Fuse Creativity System goodies in a competition currently running over at the Fiskars Website...they asked me to make a card to launch the competition with a Robin theme...the most iconic of all British birds and the image that appears on more christmas cards sold in the UK than any other so I knew that this chirpy cheep cheep cheeky little chappy from the Bird Die would fit the bill (excuse the pun) perfectly...
isn't he adorable...letterpressed and die cut from felt for his head and back and then again from patterned paper with a little bit of Festive Berries distress inking to highlight that beautiful redbreast.  I embossed the birdcage plate from the Tag Die onto the plain background paper to give it a little bit of interest.
The leaves are made from the wing section of the die...letterpressed and cut from stripey paper and to give it that Christmas snowy feel...a generous sprinkling of Frantage Chunky White Embossing Enamel...
and if you're still sitting on the fence about buying a Fiskars Fuse Creativity System...there's a great deal available...a whopping 20% off...only available at Hobbycraft Demo Days (for dates and locations click HERE) or at the Art of Craft Stand (F50) at Hobbycrafts at The NEC in November and if you would like to come and have a play first...pop along and book into my Fiskars Workshops at Stand J08.
But I have a hot date this morning with the Professor over at Creative Chemistry 102..so I'll see you all tomorrow.
Hugs Kath xxx

What a jolly Robin - almost makes me think I should make an early start on my Christmas cards - almost. The sun is out today and due to be tomorrow too, so I'm painting my garden furniture instead (long overdue) before it's time to put on those winter covers. X
