Sarah Kay Blog Candy




Whoohoo.. I’m having a Candy Give Away.. For no other reason than that it is the first day of the month of celebrations tomorrow.. and the countdown to Christmas really begins 🙂

The lovely BRYONY from SILLY MONKEY CRAFTS has kindly and generously donated this gorgeous SARAH KAY stamp  ‘Country Girl’  that is shown in my card..

The complete range of Sarah stamps are back in stock and available at SILLY MONKEY CRAFTS right now.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this stamp is leave a message under this post and tell me what is at the top of your christmas crafting list.. [wanna know because I am so nosey!]

and that is it!! *Ü* Anyone can join in, you don’t even have to have a blog.. I will ship internationally.. so ‘Go on…’ You got to be in it, to win it 🙂

You have until Friday 5th of December to enter, I will close it at 12 Noon.



For my card I have used the lovely sketch provided by SKETCH SATURDAY 🙂

Sarah is coloured with Distress inks and the papers I’ve used are by MME 29th Street Market.

Made the pin with some spare beads, tied some organza ribbon and used the SU! tab punch a lot!

Thanks for the sketch, and thanks for looking..

    Warme groet, Renata
