Imagine and wish

Happy easter everyone. Hope you're having a great holiday. I've been crafting a lot although I've been quite tired from all medication I'm taking. I've been shifting from sewing a bag (almost done) to cards and a cross stitch while I'm watching whole seasons of a show from the very beginning. Very nice :)

I've been trying to catch up and make some more projects using my sweet pea stamps (that haven't seen ink yet poor things) This one is called Moonlight whispering. I really like the stamps so I try to leave the layout quite simple.

Speaking of sweetpea stamps there are a bunch of things going on during april that you won't want to miss. This is because sweetpea will be one year at the end of april. Hooray!

First, everyone that will be signing up as a follower during this saturday and sunday will be in a chance to win a free 5 count grab bag. You have to sign up as a follower on the sweetpea blog and check back to see if you've won. See the post HERE for all the info.

Second, as a part of the celebration YOU can vote for which image you would like to see as a stamp. Go HERE to find the links.

Third: Elaine Cox's newest Alice stamps are out and they are on sale through april 3:rd. These images are so wonderful. HERE you can see the whole sheet and you can order them HERE.
There is also a wonderful new sheet just in time for mother's day. You can see them HERE and order them HERE. These are on sale through april 5:th.

And finally, I hope you haven't missed that there are monthly challenges going on on the blog? This month the rules are:

April Customer Card Challenge:
1. Using ONLY Sweet Pea Stamps,
2. Create an ATC (2.5" x 3.5") Card.
3. Use Purple and Pink.
4. Include an 'Odd' Embellishment.
Upload and add the link to your blog here during the week of April 11-17.

For this card I used a sketch and a bunch of challenges:

Crafts and me - fairies or wings. Use a sweetpea image for a second chance.
Lili of the valley - blue and silver (the frame is mirror silver, hard to photograph though)
Papertake weekly  - open theme
Simon says stamp - it's so distressing (I distressed the edges of the image and the background paper has a distressed look)
Sketch and stash - sketch
Stampin for the weekend - ribbons and bows

And at last a little tip for you: It's a little candy that Lorraine has to offer for all supporters of her blog. This time she has this adorable stamp as her candy:
Hop over to her blog to sign up. You have until Wed 7th April 9am CET to enter.

Ok, I think that was it for now. I'm off to crosstitch some more. I'm planning to use it for a sewingproject so it will be a while before I can show it to you, but I'm so excited about it. I'm also planning on making my own designed bag and a tutorial if all goes well. Keep your fingers crossed.
