Final Reminder for Blogversary Challenge

This is my final Reminder for my Blogversary Challenge!

 I offered the chance to win  a die from 
Craftstash - Stained Glass Rose Window,
 promising to post anywhere in the world.

I have made a few examples with my copy of this die: these two cards involved placing pink/gold card behind the die cuts.

This card used various coloured cards to paper-piece the die cuts.

Here are a couple of cards using the die as a stencil. 

My final examples using this die are a set of ATCs where the die has been used as a stencil or to make a die cut. I have also used Tonic ATC Collection dies, Craftstash number stamps and dies and a selection of embellishments.
The ATCs represent special anniversaries:

5 = Wood

25 = Silver

30 = Pearl

40 = Ruby

50 = Gold 

To be in with a chance to win this die I would love you to do the following:

  • Become a Follower of my blog (or already Follow)

  • Post a picture of my Candy on your Sidebar with a link to this post

  • Add your make to the linky below - with the theme "Thinking of You"

This Winner will be chosen by Random Org from those of you that have linked

 on Wednesday 28th February.

If you do not have a blog - email me ( and I will make sure you are also in the running for the prize...

Good luck!

Happy Crafting!
