So you can imagine how we are feeling to see that when challenge #1 closed yesterday we had an amazing 105

We hope you all enjoyed playing along and will join us for challenge #2

But onto the winner of challenge#1

We used to pick the winner and the winner is.................................................................

2 versions of Fizzy Moon

That's the moaning over.  So far I have made 85 cards  for Hotshot Crafts since Friday. I thought I had finished.....silly me....of course I hadn't. I forgot I still had 20 bunting cards to do......... No housework again!

I have 2 samples to show you that I have made with one of the new Fizzy Moon stamps that are now available at Hotshot Crafts ( if you can't find them in the web shop yet just ring them and they will sort it out for you)

The first card has been coloured with Promarkers. I have also added clear glittery Atyou Spica pens on the flowers and vases. You can't see it on the photo...but it is there!.
The DP is Portobello Road

The second card has been coloured with H, B, Hb2 and HB4 pencils.   I made the flowers from a die and added  punched leaves.

Keep warm and safe
