CANDY WINNER, + .....

Hello All

I recently posted details of a nice package of goodies which you could win for yourself by leaving a comment at the bottom of the blog post.  This is the nice package -


We received a whole stack of cool comments - thanks all!

Connor (my son) chose a number (number 57), I counted down, and if I counted correctly (checked twice!), number 57 is Netty!!!!!  And as Netty can often be found kindly leaving comments, it is fitting that she should win the prize this time methinks.  If you email us at: info@craftyindividuals.co.uk Netty and enclose your address, we will be delighted to send you your gift.  Congratulations!  Keep a look out for more blog candy in further posts - as your winning turn might well be next!

I'm now going to quickly rattle on with more images on the theme of the September Challenge.  Sue sent over some images recently and I will pop them below.  I love this one where she used some 'waste' chipboard from an earlier project, to create this little beauty:


Sue has used a sheet of our Shades of Summer paper behind the chip, and bundled up some 'distressed' postcards with the help of a stamped section from CI-307 (such a useful collection of bits and pieces).

She has also decorated a double slide mailer - we still have these in stock HERE - and always such fun to alter and embellish!



I received a whole batch of lovely projects from Helen on the 'Last Days of Summer' Challenge theme.  As Helen is a teacher in her 'day' job, the last days of Summer mean a return to the classroom for her - hence the two fun crafty creations below :


Nice idea using the solemn little girl from CI-277.  Not sure she's too keen on the whole back to school thing though!

Helen thought she had better sort out a new pencil case before going back to school as well -


Hope the children like it Miss Chilton?!

More from Helen soon.

Paula has decorated a notebook/journal in a very summery way - lots of CI stuff going on here - and so very pretty as well!



Paula has also sent over an image of a bookmark card featuring CI-357, and I reckon this fits the Challenge bill without a doubt  -



- Paula used TAP for her stamp transfer onto fabric, such amazing stuff, particularly on fabric.

Lynne has had a play with this stamp too - such a different look using a different colour scheme - nice and restful......


On a totally different theme, well removed from the restful image above, I'm going to call it a day now by waking you up again with a bit of 'Halloween'?! inspiration.  I have just received these images today from Sylvie, and I love this spooky delight!  Sylvie has used elements from CI-360 in her dark and mysterious project ....





Definitely a 'must have' Halloween stamp this!  I have something in mind for this set soon myself.

More to come - and check out the Challenge entries so far HERE, and take yourself on a nice little blog hop at the same time.  Looking forward to seeing YOUR entry too, and you will be able to grab yourself a nice little 25% discount at our shop as a reward.
