Just swingin' by to say...

Jeg er med i en gruppe på facebook som heter 'Hero Art Kits Fanatics', og vi har hatt en såkalt 'birthday card exchange' der vi sendte et bursdagskort til hverandre, uten tekst inni ~ for gjenbruk! Dette var kortet mitt til Rosie ~ med tre morsomme apekatter ♥

Creative Fingers utfordring #200. feirer vi med en Bloggcandy, sponset av meg selv ~ som du kan finne her: Creative Fingers BlogCandy! Eller klikk på det rosa candy bildet til høyre. Og det er enda en mulighet til å vinne det søte Gorjuss stemplet i en bloggcandy her på min egen blogg også! Klikk her eller på det blå candy bildet til høyre i bloggen.

Vi blir sponset av vår egen DT Angelique, med et flott Flag banner die-sett! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)


I'm in a facebook group called 'Hero Arts Kit Fanatics' where we made a birthdaycard (no message inside, just a removable personal note, to allow for paying it forward ~ which is a great idea!) for another person. I made this one with three cute little monkeys for Rosie ♥ 

We are celebrating reaching our challenge #200. over at Creative Fingers, with a seperate BlogCandy post which you can find here, or click on the pink candy image on my sidebar. I have a BlogCandy on my blog too for a second chance to win that sweet gorjuss rubberstamp! Click here or on the sidebar blue candy image to go there to enter.
