We have some exciting and sad news...The sad news is Tilda & Co / Sarah Kay Challenges are no more, unfortunately there has had to be some changes. I have needed to merge both the blogs together to free some time up for herself. The good news is we have a brand new challenge blog Magnolia Vs Stampavie.We hope you will join in the challenge each Sunday (as before) The blog is now partnered with Stampaive so you can use Magnolia Stamps, Sarah Kay Stamps and any other stamp made by Stampaive including the ever so lovely Rachelle Anne Miller Designs (these must be the ones made for Stampavie – check out the list on the challenge blog if you're not sure which stamps can be used). The blog live now with the first challenge on Sunday.
There is candy on 7 DT members blogs up for grabs - I have choosen Christa's blog to enter on as I don't think I have the stamp. I ccan't quite make it out but if it is a kiss for chloe please let me know so I can change my vote. thanks x

Sitting here with hot lemon and no motivation. I have done cards for challenges and will try and get them loaded but I think I will probably miss the deadlines now.
I am sorry all ABC entrants that I have not commented on all your cards, I apologise, i will try and look at them all even if I do not post a comment.
Right back to bed, hope everyone else is ok and does not get this flu/cold.
hugs Vicky x

My darling boys have just ordered me 3 of the new Tilda's for my birthday, Tilda with Rose, Ice Tilda and Tilda with stripped tights. Paul threw in the basket a packet of Basic Grey Eva papers which I love doff Cathy's blog and set 1256 of twinkling H2O's to try. He has also promised me the new Elizabeth Bell Sugar Nellies, of the girl and teddy and the christmas scene. I wonder if I can push my luck and get the WOJ Matilda washing up. I am hoping that I get enough money of my relatives to get a Clutterbug? Unfortunately the machine was out of stock at Glitter Pot otherwise it may have fallen in the basket too!
I am putting together my birthday Candy - lots of papers and ribbon so far and a few stamped images, not sure whatelse to add - any suggestions?
Right back to the boys, hope to blog more later. Hope everyone is ok x

I want to do something special for my blogoversary and 30,000 hits BLOG CANDYThe October "Think Pink" campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness is very close to my heart and I am sure it is the same for many of you too.So when the new "Tilda Think Pink" stamps were released on Saturday I was straight on the site to order 2 Tilda's and a couple of sentiments.I have decided as you girls have been so kind and supportive over the past year I am going give one of each... a BCA Tilda and sentiment along with lots of pink goodies to make your cards with.No picture at the moment but as soon as the stamps arrive I will post one. I am going to keep this open for the whole month of October and I will get my Mum to choose a winner on Friday 31st October at 20.00 hrs.Here is what I would like you to do.. if you have time can you make a pink card and send it to someone who could do with a little tender loving care.It would be lovely if it was someone who's life has been touched by this terrible disease but it can be anyone who could do with a kind word and a beautiful card to cheer them up.. I am sure we all know someone.Post a picture of your card on your blog and link it back to me here so I can come and have a look, if you don't have a blog you can still play just email me your entry.So come on girls get out your pink stash and MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY!
This is another card I will definately be doing so watch out little sister you will have a pink creation landing on your doorstep in the next week!

The theme is sparkle and most of this card is sparkle. It forms part of a RAK to be sent to a friend who is feeling a bit down - I hope she likes it.
There is sparkly jewels, glitter on the paper and I have added purple glitter glue to the flowers that Tilda is holding. The sketch is inspired by the one Katharina has done for the ABC Challenge this week. I hope you like it.
