Oh my gosh it's 2009!

Happy New Year everyone!

Sorry, was that too loud?  Well I hope you’re not too hungover because I have news of an exciting new stamp themeplate from Elusive Images.

Launching on January 14th, this is the Harlequin Rose A4 themeplate:


Isn’t it gorgeous?!  Well I’m busy playing with it at the moment for a Create and Craft TV show that I’m filming in a couple of weeks and it’s just a joy to work with.  Graphicus Guild members were given an early Christmas present when this was their featured offer of the month in December and I’ve already seen one or two samples on blogs – if you have this set and you’ve already done something with it, please leave a comment with a link to your blog and let others see what you’ve done.

Over on the Elusive Images blog, we’re giving you the chance to win this themeplate, so why not pop over there and leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning.

And while you’re blog hopping, you might want to take a look at the Graphicus blog too – we’ve changed our old monthly website winners contest and turned it into a monthly challenge instead.  We’re looking for suggestions for future themes and colour schemes and there’s a prize to be won each month.

The TV show I’m working on also features Damask Hearts which goes very well with the Harlequin Rose and makes a great themeplate for scrapping a wedding or anniversary.  Adrian and I will actually be able to celebrate our wedding anniversary this year for the first time in about five years.  It always seems to fall within the dates of the trade show that we exhibit at and this year the show finishes the day before!  I’m planning a little surprise for him, but obviously I can’t reveal that here because he does actually read the blog!


With family commitments, today is my last full day to myself in my craft room, so I’m off to make the most of it – it’s a nice way to start the New Year.

All the very best for 2009 to you all!
