LOVELY FOLLOWERS' CANDY...

As mentioned in my last post I now have 400+ lovely followers, and I would like to give a little reward to 4 of you.  Actually I'd like to reward you all, but as that would probably bankrupt us, I'd better stick to 4 this time around.  So if you would like to be in with a chance of being able to choose a particular CI stamp, and also have a few other little goodies enclosed with your stamp when we send it out, and you are a Follower of this Blog (you still have time to become a Follower if you are quick!), then leave a comment at the end of this post.  We will then pick 4 random Follower Comments to win the prizes before I write my next post.

Now I will get on with giving you a little visual stimulation!

Decorated purses seem to be right on trend at the moment and I spotted this little beauty on Ephemera's Attic Blog.   Paula is one very talented lady!



Lucy Edmondson has also been decorating little purses too - so check out her blog for other delights.  Here is one of them ..


Very pretty!

Isabelle Norris has also been busy lately using our stamps in a very creative way involving matchboxes.  How adorable is this little set of drawers?!

And a close up ..


Just loving all that lovely detail.  Check out her BLOG for more pics and projects.

.....

There are six days left to get your 'Winter Wonderland' NOVEMBER CHALLENGE entries linked in folks, so you have still got enough time to make that wintery project sparkle, and I still have a few more projects left to show you made by the team.

Firstly three more adorable cards made by Sue Abbott - love them!




How particularly stunning is that last card?!

You will find most of the stamps used in the above projects on our website at  www.craftyindividuals.co.uk either in the Individuals or Elements Section.

To close tonight thought I would just show you my little notebook on a tag gift idea again - this time with the addition of a miniature ball point pen - found in packs of ten recently in Aldi.  Just makes the gift complete I reckon.


So don't forget to leave a comment.  FOLLOWERS ONLY this time please.  Much appreciated!
