A Dotcomgiftshop Festive Offering....

Hello friends
I hope you all had a good weekend, your comments yesterday were
so lovely - thank you.  As I'm preparing this blog post the total followers
stands at 497...so nearly there!  Again, big thanks to you all.  

STOP PRESS!!! 500 followers!
If you haven't done so already, please leave a comment on yesterday's post and
I will ask Elliott to pick out a winner for the Christmas goodies!

A little while ago I mentioned that my blog had been picked
out by Dotcomgiftshop as one of their favourite blogs.


Well, I couldn't resist ordering some of their items and over the weekend I managed to
sit down and make something...the first bit of card crafting I have 
done in ages! 

This what I ordered.....all very modest purchases!
I've linked back to their website for each product.



(these are in a handy dispenser box - you do not remove them,
just pull on whichever tape you need - very nifty!)
 



and this is what I made...
 It will not surprise you that it is festive and it also features Layered Poinsettia!
I just added some extra pieces of paper, wood grain and green dotty and a piece of cream lace.
I am really impressed by the quality of their products and especially liked the washi tape,
so much so - I ran a strip across the bottom of the envelope to match the card
and dress up the plain white envelope.
What I also like about their website is that they have a 'deal of the day' -
every day a product from their website is drastically reduced! 
Their postage and packing is really reasonable too.  It is worth stopping by each day to 
see what the deal is - perfect for Christmas shopping.

Take care friends, 
I will be back very soon.
