Blog Candy Alert!!!!!!!

As some of you may know I have been guest designing for  and others of you will know I celebrate my birthday this month.  The lovely lady, Gill James, who owns and runs Foilplay has kindly agreed to sponsor a blog candy giveaway and I thought I would do this so 5 lucky people can also have some birthday joy with me this month.

Here is a selection of the sheets you will receive (the bundles will vary, but there will be 20 sheets of mixed toppers, borders and embellishments).

The bundle laid out on the floor as that was the only surface big enough to show it ALL

The Christmas selection (10 sheets in total)

The Everyday Selection (10 sheets in total)

Over the coming days I will post various cards I have made from each set and link back to this post.

All I ask is that you leave a comment on this post letting me know what you're favourite occasion is to make a card for.

Good luck!  Winner announced on 22 November (not my birthday btw).

Dragon's Dream TIO - DT Post, "Undead"

This time is Gabby's turn at the helm and she chose U and a quote.  Well it was recently halloween and my OH loves zombies, do I have to say anymore?

I started by making a zombie-ish skin tone background by smearing Distress Inks on to a tag, I then scoured the internet for undead quotes and found one from the Zombie Survival guide relating to schools so a zombie teacher had to be order of the day.  Found a pic - printed it, and stuck it on.  I printed the quote and stained the paper with Distress Ink, and stamped the spiders web from and Indigoblu plate then added the yarn/fibres in contrasting colours.

Hope you like
