Exciting News from Little Claire and a Special Offer!

I've got some exciting news to share with you today about Little Claire!

First of all, the Little Claire stamp 'Swirly Whirlies Owl Family' was runner up in the Best Stamp category of The British Craft Awards!!  You can find the stamp here on the Little Claire website and there's a gorgeous gallery of cards there too.

This is a card I made recently with the stamp.  I've coloured the image with Promarkers and then edged it with Cool Peri Adirondack ink leaving a white border.  I've also used my Fiskars Threading Water punch to create the border.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - 'punch it out'
Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog - 'layer it up'
Sparkles Forum Challenges - 'birds'
Rhedd and Rosie Challenges - 'one for the birds'
Ladybug Crafts - 'the colour blue'

And the next piece of exciting news - one of the latest Little Claire new releases 'Tulip Cat' is featured in this month's Card Making and Papercraft magazine as their 'pick of the month'.  You can see the piece from the magazine underneath my tag and the stamp is here on the website.  I made the tag for a recent swap and decided to go for a lilac theme for a change!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More - 'make your mark'
Through the Craftroom Door - 'anything goes'
I Love Promarkers - 'anything goes'
2 Sisters Blog Challenge - 'flowers for spring'
Inky Impressions Challenges - 'flowers'
LEJ Designs Challenge Blog - 'add a flower/s'
Craft Your Passion Challenges - 'ribbon or lace'
Charisma Cardz - 'die cuts'
Paper Crafting Journey - 'ribbon or lace'
