Big Hug …and some news

 

 

Good morning crafters, thanks for stopping by  …and I hope you all have some nice things planned for the weekend

***

I have some news for you today, you will notice a few changes to our blog over the coming weeks. There is going to be more to look at when you do visit us and you will see additional pages popping up along the top  …more about those shortly!

 

The first big change is going to be the commenters candy. We get lots of lovely comments left on the cards that we share and to show you that we do appreciate all the feedback that you leave for us the prize will change from a £25 voucher at the end of the month to a £10 voucher every week. We will continue to feature a new card every single day and now you will have a chance to win a £10 voucher each week just for leaving us a comment!

Lucy does a theme day on our Facebook page most Thursdays and it is very popular  …so, we will be having something similar on the blog once a week, lots more lovely card inspiration for you AND there will be random giveaways

Finally (for now!) we are planning to have a monthly challenge. Some of you may remember that we used to have a weekly challenge which is now run independently as a fan site. We will have a new one here on the blog once a month and you will have the full month to make and enter a card. Again there will be some great prizes up for grabs so watch out for our first one on May 1st

How does all that sound for starters, lots of freebies I can hear you shouting  …got to be good right??

Onto todays card and this is featuring two of our new characters Patch and Jack …

 

 

JPP Big Hug - Lou

 

 

This stamp is called Big Hug

Our Lou made this lovely card and she’s used a little sentiment from one of our older (but still very popular) stamp sets called Calendars

The little ‘hugs’ embellishment is made from the Grunge Tickets and Words For Tickets stamps

Have a great weekend all
