I Don't Like Mondays...again!

Hello friends,
Mondays must be the least liked day of the week - do you agree?
My London working days at the moment are Mondays and Tuesdays but I'm glad to say in 2 weeks' time I'm going back to working on Thursdays and Fridays.  I'm returning to a department I used to work in and I'm looking forward to going back - I'm hoping they have missed my incessant crafty and Bella chat! 
So..to make this Monday much nicer I think I should have a giveaway...
this is to commemorate my new blog makeover and well, I just feel like giving something away! 
How about.....


I have a brand new pack to send out to a lucky winner.
A little bit about Bitty Blossoms - looking back I've used them quite a lot!
On this....

and this...(my sons do crop up often don't they!)
I featured them on a Friday Die-Day....
and of course..I put them on a tag....
I think we all agree how sweet and nice they are.
Just leave me a comment telling me your favourite flower please and 
Bella will clock in for work on Saturday!
Take care friends.

Morning Christine,
Well I do hope the next two weeks fly by for you so you will enjoy your Mondays again. I don't mind Mondays anymore as it is the first day of the week that I have my grandson, so all good.
Thank you for the chance of this lovely candy, I don't have this set so it would be very welcome if I was lucky enough to win.
I hope you have a good day. Hugs Linda xx

Hi Christine, I don't have this set of dies but do love making flowers. They are so easy to make and add dimension to cards. My favourite flower must be roses, multitude of colours and types, just love them.

Hi Christne, I quite like Mondays cos it's one day closer to Friday. I love making flowers, Ido have this set but would. Give them to my friend if won. Have a good day, best wishes Lesley x

Desiree said...

Hi Christine,
Thanks for offering this candy - I have had this die on my wish list for a while, so would love to win.
I love flowers that have a strong scent as well as looking beautiful and I don't think you can beat a rose for that. However I do love fuchsias, even without a scent!

Morning Christine,

I have to agree we don't like Mondays in our house! and this is definately down to work and school, but hey ho such is life!! Thanks for giving us a chance to win, bitty blossoms are just lovely dies. My favourite flower would be Peony, I have one in a pot in our back garden, I just love the wonderful layers of the petals and how they all look scrunched up. Hence i do have the peony grand die, and it is used as often as I can.

Good luck everyone.

Carole Z said...

Hi Christine, thanks for offering this delicious candy!
They have been on my wish list for ages! Love the projects today and yes I hate Mondays too..my work days are Mondays, Tues and Thurs, so roll on Weds and Fri I say!!! Carole Z X

I love using the spiral flowers and use the poinsettia leaf with them. Have just used spiral flowers on a wedding horseshoe it turned out really well!

Kym's Crafty Cards said...

Christine, not keen on Mondays either. The week-ends just seem to fly by. I've had this die on my wish list since it came out. As I make my cards solely to sell to raise funds for different charities my funds are very limited and that's why I used dies like the blossom and the scalloped circles to make flowers. I would love to be in with a chance of winning this die. Best wishes, Kym xxx

Bea said...

Hi Christine - I am another member of yeugh Mondays! Especially as we just don't seem to be getting rid of the rain either. Still your projects remind us that summer can bring flowers and the blossom dies are lovely - the foliage dies are fab too and ones I use quite a bit. I find I am making more flowers because the garden is such a wet mess.

Lucycat said...

Hi Christine. Thank you so much for giving us a change to win this great set of dies you are so generous. I would have to say I think my favourite flower in craft would have to be the poinsettia. x.

Lydia Jordan said...

Morning Christine,
Being retired all days are very similar so Mondays are fine with me.
You are so generous to your blog fans with give aways.
My favourite flower is the rose and we have many in the garden closely followed by the sweet pea.
Have a good day everyone.

Chloe's Nan said...

Hi Christine, hope the time until you are back to your preferred working pattern goes quickly! Monday's would sure look a lot better if we had some sunshine! I have two favourite flowers and find it hard to choose between them - roses and peony, although I suppose they are very similar so perhaps its the form of the flower I like rather than the flower itself!! x

Sue Yorkshire said...

Morning Christine. I don't like Monday's either, some sunshine would make it better

I love these dies and they are on my wish list so it would be nice to cross them off

My favourite flowers are tiger and calla lilies but for scent you can't beat freesias.

Hope Monday passes quickly for you

Oksana said...

Hi Christine! I love putting flowers on my cards, whether it be stamping or making them! Lovely projects today and those dies are wonderful - would love to be in with a chance of winning them! Thank you!xx

Elaine said...

Wow another candy giveaway. Would love to be in with the chance. Hope work flies by....

Maggie J said...

Hi Christine I don't mind Mondays anymore now that I am retired, I don't really have a favourite flower as I like all flowers and make lots in card making. Yours are always brilliant. I use all my scraps to make them as well so I have various bags of different sizes. I don't have these dies so it would be lovely to win them if I was lucky.

hazel said...

morning Christine, yes mondays are always the worst day of the week as the weekend just seems so far away. A song springs to mind. I don't have the bitty blossoms die its on my extending wish list. My all time favourite flower is an orchid, but also love carnations, nigella(love in the mist) dahlia and lillies. i could go one but think i will stop myself there. lol xx hazel

AnneRD said...

Hi Christine
I agree with Chloe's Nan, Mondays would be awesome if there was a bit of summer sun; its raining yet again here in the West!
Thank you for the chance to win some very useful candy, have loved the way you have used these dies so they are on my 'wish list'. Anne x

loftylass said...

Hi there Christine - my favourite flower has to be the rose - they generally smell delicious and they flower their socks off. closely followed by the freesia - so delicate and richly perfumed. I love making flowers for my cards and I would be thrilled to win this die set. Thanks for the opportunity.
Hugs

Liz Thomson said...

Hi Christine I have to say I love all kinds of flowers but at the moment I have a beautiful orchid that I was given and keeping my fingers crossed that it does not die on me.Would love to add this set of dies to my collection as I have to borrow this set from a friend.

What a lovely give away Christine -As the weather up here in the North of England is wet, wet, wet! It would be great to brighton up this bleak Monday morning by being lucky enough to win this superb prize.

Morning Christine, first of all i just think your scrapbook page is fantastic,and the flowers really set the page off a treat.

I have no flower dies as yet ,but i have made a few flowers with the border die of the iron works.

My favourite flower must be the carnation as i had them in my wedding bouquet ,we are already planning our 50th Anniversary for next year and i am thinking of having a few on the tables .

It wont be long before you start to enjoy your Mondays again Christine.

Redanne said...

Hi Christine, I ust be in a minority of one! I don't mind Mondays. Being retired we tend not to go out at weekends but go shopping on Monday and it is usually nice and quiet. My favourite flower is Clematis, we have lots in the garden and they are so beautiful at the moment. You are so generous with your give-aways Christine, would love to win this so thanks for the chance. Thanks for showing us your beautiful layout again, lovely boys and Bella, of course. Crafty hugs, Anne x
Roll on the next 2 weeks for you.

Sue B said...

Hello Christine, what a generous lady you are, another giveaway. My favourite flowers are lillies & orchids, although I never seem to keep the latter for very long. In craft, my favourite at the moment is a set of stamps which make up different looks of flower-stunning-& I can't stop using them. I already have this set of dies but if I was lucky enough to be picked I would give them to my crafty friend who doesn't have them. Good luck to everyone.

Thank you for your daily dose of crafting inspiration! My favourite flowers are daisies - they are so bright and fresh.
Best wishes

Toni G said...

Good morning Christine,
Could I take this opportunity to say a huge thank you for the daily inspiration you provide for all of us crafters! My favourite flowers are daisies - they are just so clean, bright and fresh.
Kind regards
Toni

Cherwell Leys Alpacas said...

Hi Christine, My favourite flowers are David Austin English Roses, so full blown and highly scented. However, also love walking through a bluebell wood in bloom, a sea of blue and heady perfume. Thank you for the chance to win some great dies. Just off to bottle feed my baby alpaca in the rain.

Mrs. O said...

Hello! I love daisies and lily of the valley. Zinnias are pretty neat, too. I love to use flowers on my cards and those dies you are giving away surely would be put to good use! Happy Monday!

Bessie Segal said...

Hi Christine, Your new page is looking fresh & good.
I make flowers from Tim Holtz Tattered Florals & this is great fun but this die-set could give me a whole new look, if I were lucky enough to win it.
My favourite flowers are roses, especially dog roses; oh the perfume & the shape!
Best wishes, Bessie.

Cazann49 said...

Hi Christine, I don't have this set. At the moment I only have the anemone die and the large swirly one (That I can't think of the name of!) I always feel you can never have too many flowers!..I love them all but on a card I think the rose dies look stunning!..I would love to win these dies please..:)..You are very generous..:)..Hope ll goes to plan, so you can get your Mondays back..lol...Enjoy your day..xxxx

Craftychris said...

ooh thank for the chance to win these fabulous dies! My favorite flowers are forget-me-nots and Londons Pride which I remember from my Grandma's garden. I would love to go to work on a Monday. I lost my job six years ago cause of illness and now have M.E. It would be so fab to be well enough to work, I miss it loads (and the money!). One day I will!!! It will be cool when you go back to the department you like best and they will be happy to have you back too! xx

Elizabeth said...

Hi Christine
You are so kind in giving us all a chance of owning such a pretty set of flower dies.
I love all flowers but my absolute favourite is the lime green spikey chrysanthemum. I believe they call it the Shamrock Chrysanthemum Bloom. I think I like it because it is unusual. I also like calla lillies, they are so elegant. I like to see both of these in contemporary flowers arrangements.
Hope your Monday turned out just fine.
Good luck to everyone.

Planetsusie said...

Hi Christine - you really are a kind lady to give away such a great Candy prize. I have these dies so please don't put me in for a chance to win yours - only being fair!! I wanted to say that I love the projects you have shown, especially the tag - I'm really into tags at the moment and you have used my favourite newsprint paper. The little flowers are great and really look sweet.

Must confess that I used to hate Mondays with a passion (mostly because of a stressful job) then I took early retirement and I lurve Mondays now.

Hugs Sue P xxx

PS Any more pics of Bella please???

lritchie said...

Hi Christine, your page is beautiful and I don't have these dies either. My favorite flowers are roses. The weather in our fair city has been horrible so we haven't seen many yet.

Have a great day!

Toni said...

Christine, thank you so much for this kind offer to help cheer us all up on a monday. I just love the Bitty Blossom set and it's also on my ever growing wish list too. I love most flowers but one of my very favourites has to be the poppy. I just love all the varieties, both the giant ones and the small ones. they are all so pretty.
Thanks again,
Toni xx

Good day to you! Mondays still bring back yukky memories even if I'm now retired. I used to think up a million reasons why I shouldn't go to work that day but commitment and a guilty conscience got me going....reluctantly. Now I can sit home and smell the flowers and enjoy my day. My fav' flower....magnolia for it's beauty and fragrance. Cheers......MarilynY

Disco Queen said...

Hi Christine, Thankyou so much for the chance to win this amazing die set. I love all flowers, but roses hold a special place in my heart. My grandfather grew roses in his back garden. These were very precious to him & no-one was allowed to touch them. Yet, every year on my birthday he would cut several & present them to me as a gift. I was the only one who ever had a rose from them & Mum & Nan were very jealous. He used to say it was a gift for his gift. I was born on his birthday & when he asked Mum where his present was she answered there in that crib.

Georgina said...

Morning Christine,Thank you for the opportunity to win Bitty Blossoms. I have played with a friends die set and with her and your inspiration this set is on my wish list too. Your creations have resulted in me purchasing the poinsettia, rose and peony creations dies and the essential Donna Salazar wonderful wings. We are very lucky to have a wonderful shop Country Paper Craft owned by the lovely Marg in Bruce Rock, some 31/2 hours drive from home.Our state flower is the Red Kangaroo Paw, but my favorite 'flowers' are my beautiful daughters. Georgina in Kalgoorlie W.A.

Hi Christine

Thank you so much for the opportunity to win the Bitty Blossoms die. Your layouts, tag and card are fabulous. One of my favourite flowers has to be a daffodil. I just think they are gorgeous.

Good afternoon Christine, the new layout of your blog site is brill, looks fresh, not that I didn't like the other layout! Talking about fresh, I wish we'd get some lovely fresh sunshine days, instead of these stale wet days, it's about time we had some sun! I've always, said my favourite flowers are longifloram lilies, but I just love orchids, lots of people don't do so well with them, but I must be doing something right (don't know what!) as I have one that I have had for over six years which still repeatedly flowers. I also seem to be able to rescue ones that others throw out, because stopped flowering! Not that I'm much good with other plants, they seem to survive, but don't thrive! Sorry I've waffled on, it's lovely to see all your wonderful creations and inspiration, thank you for the chance to win such lovely dies, as I've now got my new Grand Calibur, so can once again practice more of these lovely cards and other wonderful craft projects that you do. Take care Alison :)

ChrisH said...
