Who Fancies A Freebie?????

Yes???

Well who wouldn't eh??

After all the doom and gloom that I have had to work in lately, this is something to smile about so I just had to share this xxx

Pop over here and check it out peeps xx

There is a free subscription to the Making Hand Made Cards e-newsletter which is fairly new, plus there is a freebie floral doodles printable kit as well which is available for a few more days.

What you need to do is susbcribe to the newsletter and then you'll get a confirmation email just double checking that you really want the newsletter. Once you click the confirmation link in there, you'll receive the freebies email within minutes. That e-mail has the free floral doodle kit plus other freebies.

This is all the work of the lovely Claire, and one of the reasons I've been a bit quiet here this last week (apart from the dreaded 'W' word lol xx) is that she e-mailed me recently and asked me if I would be interested in doing some samples for her using her new downloadable kits that are soon to be released.

Well I had to have a look of course, and I was amazed. There are shed loads of papers and images and sentiments and the colours are fab. But what I really love about these is that each kit comes with contact sheets so you get a snapshot of everything in that kit along with the relevant file number. It saves hours of trawling through files to find the paper etc that you want, so a fabbytastic idea me thinks.

So here's a bit of a sneeky peekie!!
Everything on the cards, apart from the ribbons and brads is included in the kits.
Ribbon is Raspberry Ribbons (Wintery White), brad is Poppicrafts and it's coloured with PMs and highlighted with Glamour Dust.

Where oh where has my MSBP gone? Usurped by the interloper from Fiskars (Threading Water) lol xx. But fear not, it's just having a well earned rest!!! The image is self coloured btw so the PMs had a bit of a rest as well :)

Ribbon is Poppicrafts and the PMs rest was very short lived, poor things, cos I used them here to colour the tree and the holly.

I was ever so pleased to have been asked, so thank you Claire xx
And I'm sure when the kits are released, you'll just love them - I had to give them a toot cos they are pretty fab I have to say.


If you subscribe to the e-newsletter, you'll get a free sample of each kit in the next few days, plus you'll also get access to a videos with lots of Chrizzy cards (mine are on it - woo hoo - plus there are other fave bloglies cards in it as well but I cant say whose - mainly cos I dont know, but I bet they'll be fab lol xxx). Also, in a few days time we'll be told the launch date for the kits and Claire tells me that the first first few people to get it will get extra goodies.

So all in all, it sort of feels like Christmas. Which is jolly holly nice :)



Sorry about the loooong post and at the risk of sounding like cook-a-long-a-Gordon (Ramsey) I hope you 'stayed with me' lol xx


Hope you are all having a fantabulous weekend and see you tomorra with a challenge card or maybe even 2, but for now, it's X Factor and a glass of something white and ever so lightly chilled for me


Hugs xxxx
