Launching a New Challenge- YOU CAN CREATE IT !!

Hello there,
How are you my lovely reader? I am back to let you know about a fabulous new monthly challenge I am starting here in the UK with my lovely downline Teri, to say we are both very excited is an understatement, we cannot wait !!!
 You might remember that in December I took part (as a guest) in an International challenge run by Heike and Anja from Germany. Soon after that myself and Teri were asked if we would like to partner together and offer the same subscription based program here in the UK. We jumped at the chance and we have been busy getting ready for the launch. The program is also being run in the Netherlands, France with USA and AUS hopefully joining in soon :)

So here it is in a nutshell

WHAT:  Each month (for a small fee) you will receive a mystery kit by post. The kits are the same internationally and you will be asked to create a project using the months ingredients before posting to your blogs and linking to back so that everyone can visit, see and comment.
You are allowed to supplement the kit from your own stash but you will have to use the elements provided when creating your project.

WHEN: Closing date for ordering March kit ...... Tues 10th March
Kits will be posted ..... Monday 16th March
Closing date to send us a photo of your project .... Saturday 28th March

HOW MUCH:  £2.50 for a single month subscription weave in and out as you wish OR £2.00 per month if you subscribe to a 6 months period ????

Fancy joining us and finding out more?  drop us an email at


Much love Monica xx

How are you? So having raised pups before I was under a false sense that it would be not only fun but somewhat easier as I've already done it before. Well yeah feel free to have a good laugh at that one :) its all coming back to me really quickly. It takes up so much of my time and I don't mind it as I love spending time with him but it stops you getting things done :). In all fairness he is a very good boy and so very smart, loves to learn and it does that with ease ( I expect that's the poodle in him). I am just obsessed with him and himself with me which is nice, he definitely sees me as his mum and if he's a little scared or unsure he quickly runs and sits next to me.
And he is funny, very very funny and of course handsome :), love that cheeky face :)
In his first week he has mastered sleep through night, long car journeys, we spent the weekend in London and he slept through the three hours journey there and back (Luca adores him), no messing in the house at all ( I can count of both hands the number of accidents we had), he can sit, he can down, he can give and fetch the ball. 
And then I had to leave him behind yesterday as I am on my way to Orlando for Stampin'Up!'s last leadership event. 
He went back to the breeder until next Monday and I miss him so much already :(. I cannot wait until I see him again.
But anyway you are here to see some crafty makes and I have a New Home card to show made with a fabulous FREE stamp set.

 This stamp set is called You brighten my day and it has a few different images that are cute and perfect for a few occasions.

I chose the houses stamped in black and coloured using the blender pens and ink pads. Oh and did you spot the fun filter paper ruffle? Add a bit of something without being inner face. 
This post is short as I am off to board a plane in a minute but as always if you fancy anything my online store is open 24/7. And if I can help you in any way please get in touch :)
Much love and many thanks for your visit
