Echoes of Kindness - and your chance to win

Each month I send out an email newsletter to my customers on the Newsletter list. The information in the newsletter is separate to that here on the blog. Sometimes I run specials or competitions here on the blog and I do the same in my newsletters - but they are not necessarily the same. Each newsletter also highlights a technique or tool. I hear back from my customers that they really enjoy the newsletter, and I enjoy putting them together and offering that service. I would love to offer it to even more people.

To encourage my blog readers to join the newsletter list I would like to offer the first 5 people to sign up today a little pack of buttons and ribbons that I have made up for you. To sign up, use the sign up box over on the right-hand side of my blog - simply enter your email address. Easy huh? For those already on the email list, dont worry there are deals and specials for you too - see the April newsletter as an example, and there will of course be another newsletter coming up in May.

Please note that this "First Five" giveaway is only available to Australian residents.

I thought you would like to see a card I made up the other night - I used "Echoes of Kindness", which is my favourite of the Level 2 Hostess sets this year. I stamped the main image in Black Stazon onto Watercolour paper, and used my Inks applied with an aquapainter to colour it in. I've used Sahara Sand ink around the main image to make it "pop". The background paper is from the Urban Garden DSP - also my favourite so far. You cant see it, but the flowers are also covered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. As for the ribbon, it is one of the Striped Grosgrain ribbons - this one in Baja Breeze. If you love this ribbon, think about the ribbon swap that I currently have going. Click here for more details. It's a great way to get a selection of the ribbons for a great price.

I was really pleased with this card. What do you guys think?
