Gosh it has been ages since I last blogged, time just seems to run away from you.
I haven't been doing a whole lot of crafting, but I recently made this folder for a friend to send her some stamped images in. I love these Sugar Nellie stamps so much.

I won some Sugar

Just popped over to the Sugar Nellie blog and was amazed to see I had been chosen to receive some candy.
