New stampin' year - new look

I've been wanting to change my blog look for months & had saved this template on one of "my play blogs" so when I saw the new catalogue & Trendy Trees stamp set - I said yes I've got to do it.

One of my fellow team mates Debbie has started up her blog this weekend so do pop in & say hi she'll be thrilled as a newbie blogger and she has inspired me to be brave & finally do it! And I only lost one blog link list this time so I must be learning!

So to celebrate the new catalogue & the new look for kareN stampZ I'll be giving away some goodies so leave a comment & we'll have a draw next Monday 2000 hours NZT.

To all that do visit & leave such lovely comments many, many thanks.

UPDATE: here's the goodies

  • hand decorated by me notebook
  • wee bag of clear buttons & brads
  • Color Cutter - Sky Blue
  • 3 sheets of metallic stickers
  • bag of paper flowers
  • 1 sheet of SU dimensionals
  • 9 crimson heart chipboard shapes
  • small pack of clear stamps - birthday themed
  • 1 pack of paper flowers
Good luck

Woo hoo Karen it looks fabulous!! OK I'm REALLY far behind now, when are we going to do that blogger training?!

BTW, you don't need to include me in the blog candy draw. I've got enough stuff here to sink a battleship. I have finally talked myself into letting go of nearly 2 fish bins full of retired stamp sets! Sigh...
