Eyes Down, Look In!!!!

Hi peeps and hope that you are all OK and having a nice week :)

Hugest of thanks to everybody who joined in last week – and what beautiful blooms you made :)

So who was our winner then?


This week it’s YOU Mary D

Well done chick and if you e-mail me I’ll pass your details onto Katharina at Whiff of Joy and hugest of thanks to them for their wonderful sponsorship xxx

And check out what Mary did peeps …..

… this is so simple but so very stylish – and I love the colours :)

So onto this week and it’s time for a game of bingo – Papertake’s first. 

Here’s the ‘card’  for you ….


This one has a bit of a twist cos there are free spaces for you so if your line includes one of them you can use whatever you want for that square. But you obviously must use the other 2 items that are on the grid

I am so pleased to welcome back our very own Andrea and her lovely Mam Mary who make up the one and only …..

So that’s what we did and now it’s over to you, and if you get a sec, don’t forget if you get a sec to check out our individual blogs and see what else we have been up to.

As always, could we ask a huge favour peeps please.

Could you help to make our job at leaving comments easier by turning off comment verification and enabling comment moderation instead please pretty please xxxx. It’s ever so easy to do – see our sidebar – and you won’t get spam comments as you can easily reject the comments that you don't want to appear. And also, can we remind you nicely that’s it’s fine to combine challenges but please, no back linking. We hope you understand that it’s only fair to those who make a new card xxx

And also, can I just give you a nice gentle reminder to ask if you could make sure that you link your card and not your blog when using good old Mr Linky please my lovelies. It makes life so much easier for our DT if they don’t have to go searching for your cards.

Thanks ever so muchly – we really do appreciate it xxx

Also just to let you know that sometimes it is not possible for the Design Team to leave a comments on every entry, with these Blogger issues that some of us are having at the mo – grrrrrr what a nightmare. But please be assured that we do stop by and we are doing our best and every single eligible entry goes into the draw for our prizes even if we don’t manage to leave you a comment.

Thanks peeps for bearing with us and hugs from all of us to all of you xxx<
