Anyone for candy.......

To celebrate reaching 20,000 hits and with my 38th birthday fast approaching....gosh am I really that old!!! I thought it would be nice to offer some candy to you lovely lot by way of saying a big thank you for taking the time to visit my 'lil oasis and leaving such lovely comments etc.

Pins & Needles challenge

Up for grabs are:-

Basic Grey 'Eva' pad
Sugar Nellie 'Jingle Bells' stamp
Doodlebug rub-ons
Craftwork Cards sentiments
1 Copic Ciao 'skin white' marker
Alphabet stamp set
2 bottles Stickles
2 Versacolour ink pads
selection of flowers and ribbons
box of buttons, brads and safety pins
So what do you have to do I hear you ask?????
Well the title of my challenge is called Pins & Needles. I would like to see cards made using some decorative pins and some sewing. This challenge is open to anyone who would like to take part that has a blog. I shall have one of my little scallywags pick the winner out of a 'hat' on 28 September, which just so happens to be my birthday.

Above is a card I made using pins and beads. The papers are from Basic Grey 'Eva' pad, Sugar Nellie 'pen pal' image, flowers are from Sarahs Cards Ltd, buttons have been sewn on and added a saftey pin and beads, ribbon from my stash. There is also another example if you scroll down a little.
I shall keep this post on top until the 28 September. For all other posts please scroll down.
Have fun and I look forward to seeing some lovely creations
