Blog Candy Giveaway and some Hobby House Inspiration

Hello fellow bloggers! Still raining where you are?.....on the plus side it is a good excuse for some crafting:)...not that we need any excuse do we? :)
Before I share my card today I would like to launch another 'Blog Candy'....maybe this will cheer you up:)
The winner will receive a Heartfelt Creations stamp of your choice and also some Hobby House goodies:) As always just leave a comment on this post and you will be included in the giveaway which will be chosen by random org:)
So onto my card today...not wanting to rub it in, but I thought this card is perfect for today:
  • The image on this card is an Elizabeth Bell pre coloured topper which you may  have seen on Create and Craft today on the Hobby House show.
  • All of the embellishments that you see are also included in the April Showers kit.
  • The only things not included are the leaf flourishes , Stickles and the Spellbinder Scalloped die that I used to cut out the frame on the main card.

Update on Album Kit and New Website

I thought I should just update you all on the album kit.  Everything is coming together nicely however I forgot that it is half term and my house is rather hectic so the video will not be finished until Monday so unfortunately I will have to delay the launch date until next Friday 6th June. This will hopefully also be the launch of my new Website where you will be able to purchase the kits and also Heartfelt Creations products including a selection of Stamps, dies and paper pads. Of course my new website will not replace my blog....you will still be able to visit me here for lot's of inspiration:)

A very quick post from me today:(
I will of course be back tomorrow (Wednesday) to share my Heartfelt Creations DT card...this will probably be later on in the day though!
Take care everyone and good luck in the blog candy giveaway:)
