Winner & A Card...

Hey & Happy Monday!

I do hope your week has got off to a good start? Mine started a little wobbly with a sleepless night and snotty beans, but all turned out to be an OK kinda day - phew! Anyway, someone's week is going to be improved considerably (I hope) as I am here to announce the winner of the January 2017 Design Team Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY! 

Thank you to everyone who hopped along and left such lovely comments. has helped me pick the winner from all the comments left...

And the lucky comment was left by...

Beautiful card :) love the flower design and colors used. Thanks for sharing!

Congratulations Preety! Please send me an email to by Monday 30th January 2017 along with your postal address. I can then get your prize on its way to you.

How about a card before I go...

This card was inspired by a challenge I came across by joining in on the current TIME OUT Challenge HERE. The current Guest Designer at TO and person they are CASEing is Ksenija from Sweet Kobylkin. Ksenija happens to be running a Chasing Mojo challenge HERE, which is to CASE a card in the gallery on the post or someone else in blogland. 

I chose THIS card by Victoria Shipunova. I was first drawn to the swirly floral stamped image framing the sentiment. I was inspired to recreate this using Uniko clear stamps Originally Organic in particular and then the vibrancy of the colours.

Way back in October at the Happy Stampers Festival, I did a little retail therapy as well as running the Uniko stand, its got to be done, right...? ;) I purchased a few more Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens to go with the little quartet I already owned. Shamefully (hangs head), I've not got round to opening them, let alone using them. So, with the lovely Darnell inspiring blogland to use their NBUS, I am joining with NBUS #9

This time I used new stuff on my card and one of the optional themes CASEing. I do plan on having a go at the other optional theme of the NBUS challenge which Deborah also inspired me to have a go at HERE, the hidden message. So, all being well I will have more to share later in the week :)

Until then, thank you for stopping by.

Uniko Clear Stamps: Originally Organic
Card: Stampin' Up! Whisper White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers, MISTI & Stampin' Up! Enamel Dots

  7. Where to start?! Your card is an amazing CASE, Bev, and I love that you broke out your NBUS!! The movement and colors make a cheerful card! And then I was intrigued by your reference to the optional theme and to Deborah, so I followed the link and was astounded that we both did the hidden word technique and posted on practically the same day! How cool is that? I love that she did the how-to! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #9! And thank you for joining in the CASEing option! I look forward to seeing your hidden word card, if you get a change, depending on those snotty but adorable beans! Hugs, Darnell
