Hello there!

I can't believe that it is a week since I last posted!! I have been so swamped at work - lots of marking and planning! The joys of being a teacher, particularly at the start of a new term. Anyway, enough of my moaning! I hope to be able to get some cards and perhaps a scrapbook page or two done over the weekend - that may just be wishful thinking. Tonight I decided to have a wee break from work and do some blog hopping to catch up with my sistahs and their great creations and also to visit some new ones. This is more addictive at the moment than actually crafting!

I have discovered that I have won some more PIF candy! This is a great idea and it is such a lovely surprise when the postie arrives at your door with the package that someone has very kindly sent to you, just for visiting their blog and leaving a comment. If you haven't taken part, you really must try it! I have been lucky enough to win some candy from Kath who was the very first person to visit my blog and is a very talented fellow Scot. You should go and check out her work as she has just been selected for the Funky Hand Design Team so huge congratulations to her. I have also won some candy from Sharon and Richelle, two other great ladies with brilliant blogs. I am in the midst of preparing my own PIF candy for the six lucky ladies who won on my own blog. Don't worry ....... I haven't forgotten about you and it should be with you soon. I will be doing some more PIF candy soon as a result of winning this new candy so keep checking back!

I have also discovered some great giveaways on other blogs I have visited tonight and thought I'd let you know about them so you can visit and enter yourself. That is, if you haven't done it already! You can win the complete set of the very latest studio G stamps, 15 in total, and a rather nice set of Rhona Farrer flower and butterfly to celebrate 15,000 hits on Enfys' blog, just by leaving a comment on her blog by the 23rd April.

Tracie-Jane is offering some Pink Cat Studio stamps to celebrate her birthday. All you have to do is visit her blog and leave a comment and then provide a link from your blog to hers. You have until the 30th April to enter.

Katharina is offering an original Hänglar and Stänglar stamp as well as some other stamped images to celebrate her 30th birthday which is today. These stamps are so cute and very hard to come by! You'll no doubt have seen some wonderful creations on other people's blogs who are so lucky to own these! All you have to do to enter is to subscribe to Katharina's newsletter, link her blog to your blogroll, leave her a comment on her blog and write a post about her blog candy on your own blog. So don't delay, go and visit and wish her a very happy birthday! You have until 25th April to enter.
