Hello and Welcome. Well, this month is my Blogaversary!! Soon Crafty Nomad will be 1. Wow, I can still remember how long it took me to pluck up the courage to start a blog. My joy at my first post, my first comment, my first follower!! Now I'm an old hand with 41 followers and better art. How can I not have improved with all the support, encouragement, inspiration and love you gals and guys have shared with me. So I'd like to show my appreciation and share back a little.
The plan is to have a few candy items available here through the month. Best laid plans and all that. To start off I decided I would like to do an ATC swap. Any takers? That's not candy I hear you say. So right you are. The thing is I have a few ATC's just sitting here waiting for new homes and have been thinking about a swap for a while. So I thought this might be a fun thing to do to kick off my blogaversary party. Also a little candy. The plan was to have a few giveaways, small candy but more than one winner, rather than one person getting the lot. I want to share the love around. To start us off I have an A5 sheet of unmounted rubber called Spring Girls from Panduro. These are cute, stamp very well and always get me nice comments when I use them.
So what to do.
1. Leave a comment below if you would like a chance at this modest candy. Please mention which of my projects from the last year is your favourite and why. If you would like to follow me that's nice but it's not a requirements. As much as I would love more followers I think it's nice if you follow because you like what I do and not just because you want a chance at the candy.
2. If you would like to participate in an ATC swap please mention that below and email me craftynomad at gmail dot com with you address details. I am in Norway and am quite happy to swap ATC's worldwide. If you like a particular ATC I have posted please mention it in your comment although I can't guarantee that it will be, or even is, still available. You can check them out my clicking on the ATC label on the RHS and it will bring up just those posts. I hope there are lots of people who would like to swap. It will make me happy if I have to make more.....
In anticipation I have made this little autumn offering using one of the stamps from the above set.
The backing paper is from the Basic Grey Serenade pad. The tiny leaves were punched using a Fiskars border punch. The Spring Girl doing autumn leaf cleanup was coloured with Sharpie pens which I recieved as a surprise gift from my lovely sister. Hello Sister.
My ATC is joining the fun at
Craft-room Challenge - ATC's
Basic Grey Challenges - Autumn Colours
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Artful Times - Autumn Colours
Thanks for dropping by. Don't forget to comment for a chance at the candy and I hope you fancy swapping ATC's with me. Stay tuned for more fun and games this month.
