It's fun time!!!!!

Well...I thought I would celebrate my "2 week anniversary" in blogland with some blog candy for a little challenge!

The challenge is open to everyone - I hope you all decide to "play"!

To clarify what's being offered:

"Word Art" acrylic stamp set by Autumn Leaves
A 6x6 "Mellow" paper pad by Basic Grey
1metre of each of the 5 colours of raffia lace (lilac, light pink, dark pink, lemon and natural)

Now for the challenge! I'd like you to make a "bernie" card (a new creation please!)! That means:

(1) it has to have red on it

(2) it has to have a "cute" image

...that's it...easy!!

You all know better than me how this works, but just in case, post your card on your blog and then leave a comment here to let me know about it! My hubby wants to pick the winner (it's like having a big kid here at times!!) but I'm also going to ask my mum to help him!! We'll keep this open until wednesday 5th March (that'll be my one month anniversary!!) - I'm looking forward to some fun! bx
