WOYWW... It's Giveaway Time!

... cor blimey, is it really a whole week since last Wednesday huh? Where did that go!!! Firstly... thank you all for the lovely comments on last weeks WOYWW post... I had added up the comments and there were 76 - so I fed this into Mr. Random.Org... and he said #73 which is the comment from KEZZY. Please can you email me your addy and I will pop the tag into the post for you :O))



On with today's post... desk.. still neat(ish) and tidy(ish) and clean(ish) although the photo was taken just as I finished the tag I am giving away this week.. but more of that later. So, Distress Stains... I am in Distress heaven with the new Stains you know... I lurve them... loads... more than I love Cheesy Chester Cheeto's! It is TRUE. If I had to give one of them up... well, it would be goodbye Mr Cheesy Cheeto... although I am not saying that I AM actually going to give those up either... oh no, I really am addicted to those little orange sticks of loveliness! Ooops, I very nearly forgot to explain why I am wittering on about my desk too... it is Wednesday, meaning it is time for the Desk Hoppers of the World to unite and follow our esteemed leader, Mrs Dunnit, in a marathon hopperoony about the Crafty Blogasphere... to see what I am on about HERE are all the deets....



Anyways... enough waffle about the desk and crisps I can only get from America. Oh yesh, it is time for my monthly giveaway over on The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog... and this month it is a tag that I have made using some of the brand new release stamps from The Artistic Stamper... cool huh! To see the deets on how to join in, please CLICK HERE... Oh and... if you leave a comment for me here your name will be entered twice! Jennie also has a giveaway today, all the deets for her giveaway are HERE. Cor blimey... that was a mouthful lol



Right... tis time for my bed... busy day ahead of me and I really am needing my beauty sleep at the moment... that little critter with the sink plunger and super strength hairgel is lurking under my pillow every night... so I wake up with a face that only a mother could love and hair... well, the least said about that the better eh? That's all for now... thanks for looking... TTFN

Very cool Hels! I'm a regular lurker on your blog but I just had to pop in and tell you how cool your tag was...not only the large dotty stamp but I love the mini polka dots too! TFS

StampDancer said...

OOOh the sneak peek of the tag on your desk is lookin' mighty nice. I have to try to win it and get over to the Artistic Stamper blog.

I'm jealous of your tidiness - will you please trip on your halo just once, pretty please? I'm debating whether to join WOYWW this week or not because I've got a bigger mess than when I last posted and partly because I just do NOT want to put my distress stains away either!
Hugs,
Deb M

Congrats to Kezzy. And your desk is still looking good. I'm impressed. That's a lovely tag. I also like that stamp of dots. It would save me from grabbing my stencil/punchinella.

scrappystickyinkymess said...

voodoo vixen said...

Well, Hel's bells... still tidy eh?? and with tag loveliness on it too! I am with you on the cheeso's... first tasted them as kid in Libya and when I got here and did a trip to the supermarket Dh couldn't figure out why I was jumpin' up and down in the crisp ailse like a demented woman... I bought bags of them and ate the lot... I have had to restrict myself to a box a week now or I will rolling down the crisp aisle... ;)

butlersabroad said...

I'd be giving up those Cheesy Cheetos if I were you, probably a chemical overload making you sleep badly, lol! Lovely tag, as always. Hope you caught up on your sleep.

Hugs

Doone said...

I think a women reaches a certain age where her face should be given due notice before being required to make a public appearance, after any event, but especially after sleeping,

mothers and husbands included,

after all,

you can only stretch love so far,

that said I heard a lovely quote the other day, given as a retort to the adage 'beauty is only skin deep'.

'beauty should go down to your bones and be felt, not just sit on your skin waiting to be seen'

ShazInOzCardsCalligraphy said...

Hi there Hels, running late and probably will be too late but wanted to say I received a craft stamper this week the April one via Neil and I really loved the wall-hanging you did with the free monthly stamps (like inchies) and stamp board I think it was amazing - thanks for sharing and God bless,Shaz in oz.

Jen said...

Love this tag, and that stamp is perfect for backgrounds!!!

suzieq23 said...

Just love the tag and Artistic Stamper and Hels has done it again! Love all the background stamps - they are great for tags and journaling.
