Candy Winner, and Let it Shine

It's Sunday afternoon and the weekend is slipping away, can someone rewind please! Not been a great weekend here in London weatherwise, wouldn't think it was the height of summer. Hope it's better where you are. Funny how we (OK, me) moan if it's wet, hot, humid, whatever, out there LOL

Here's something to cheer at least one of you up: the result of our latest little candy, a Gorjuss Rubber stamp. The winner was chosen at

That is DENISE G. Congratulations Denise. Can you drop me a line and let me know your address and which stamp you would like please. Contact details can be found in the tab at the top. Thank you to everyone who entered. Stand by for a FABULOUS candy v-e-r-y soon! You definitely DO NOT want to miss that one!


I had a little play with the new Let it Shine downloads. I used one of my favourite images on both my cards here. I realised it would have been good if we had included a celebrate and a plain birthday sentiment in the bundle and decided to create a couple around this image. If you have purchased the Let it Shine bundle you can get the image with the sentiments as shown (including the circle behind the ladies, but of course without my friend, Tee's, name on there. LOL Just send us an email with your order number and I shall give you the extra bits.

I used Copics to colour in both of the images here (did I tell you the next Candy includes lots of Copics??). This image is so versatile, and can be used for so many occasions.

Everything here is of course available from Charmed Cards & Crafts:
Image from Let it Shine Digi Collection. The sentiments were created for these cards, but you can get the image with these two sentiments if you have purchased the Let it Shine bundle. Just drop us an email with the order number.
Papers: Prima Sweet Fairy Pad
Pink Pearls
The Lilac pearls were created with Liquid Pearls
Prima Butterfly Pebble
White sparkling Lace
Metal Corner (will get this on site as soon as poss)
Pink Roses

This one uses:
Again image from Let is Shine, and again you can get the sentiment behind it (minus my friend Tee's name on it of course).
Papers are Basic Grey Hello Lucious
Trim is Bo Bunny Olivia
Flower is Petaloo with a Prima centre.

    Pinky I have changed the badges now. jpg is still available, but so is gif and png. The one in the column here is gif now, and this one is smaller than the JPG - but if you want it even smaller just change the extension from .gif to .png - GIF and PNG are both transparent for coloured backgrounds xx
