I am sailing!


Come on, hands in the air and swing side to side, you know you want to! I am sailing, I AM SAILING! Across the Ocean... too early? Ok.

Morning Cupcake Lovers! Look lively, coz I've got three posts coming up today! And there's a chance to win a prize in one of them, so pay attention! ;)

First up, Rachel has chosen our new Challenge over at Cupcake and I don't mind telling you it gave me butterflies in my tummy!

Single Layer Cards.

Oh. Yep, stamping directly onto a card. Gulp. This is my fourth attempt and when I finally finished it, I celebrated with some choklit. Well, why not?

This is another of the new Nautical Range of Stamps coming soon from Rainbow Studios. Keep an eye on the Rainbow Shop, as it's currently having a makeover. These stamps, along with some prizes will all be revealed with the new look. Fab news, huh? Who doesn't like a chance to win stash? Talking of which, this is not the prize I mentioned earlier in this post. Keep watching!

Anyway, back to Cupcake, we're sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week and the beginning of the month brings a new Icing on the Cupcake sponsor. This month, we're chuffed to be joined by Polka Doodles again. Pop over to Cupcake for all the details and to see the fabby cards from The Cupcakes.

I'll be back in a few hours...
