Hot off the Press!

Here I am again at silly o'clock in the morning, while the light is coming up, typing away .Do you ever get those flash in the pan moments when you think of a title for your blog post.  Well today's title sums up everything about May that I feel right now!
I am soooo excited as I have designed this month's free stamp in Craft Stamper (a UK publication) and my copy dropped through the postbox yesterday! Wooohooo!

I also made a couple of pieces for the magazine too, and I can show you a sneak peek of one of them.... this is the back of the book :)

This weekend is May Day holiday here in the UK, and to celebrate the magazine and the fact that there is a day off , I have got specials on the swirl stamps from The Artistic Stamper here with 25% off!
Now I know you love a giveaway, so I have one for you....a set of the Swirl stamp of your choice AND a copy of the magazine!! Double bubble!... can you tell I am excited? LOL I will choose the winner of the blog candy Monday 14th, which gives you lots of time to comment!
I am away today doing an altered book workshop on Saturday at It's Crafting Time ( there is one one space left if you fancy playing!), so must get on as have lots to do before we leave. Today I have a chauffeur in the handsome form of my hubbie.... means I can sleep on the way home!!
Good luck in the blog candy, and if you put it on your sidebar, and let me know you will get an extra go!
P.S. check out the new stamps on the website :))) bunting AND new Journaling words!! ... loving them!

Have a very Creative day

How exciting for you - that stamp looks great, and I love how you have used it. I will look out for the magazine but they do take a while to get here.

I got my copy of CS a couple of days ago and the stamp is great. I've only had time to skim the article so far but I immediately fell in love with that book cover. The texture is gorgeous. Looking forward to visiting the stand at HSNW next weekend!

Congrats on designing the freebie stamp for the mag, that's wonderful! Wish I could buy it here in the states, I always here raves about it!!

Love the stamp, but the sample is simply gorgeous. I've already read that bit of the magazine and just wanted to thank you for giving me the courage to stamp into gesso and paste with all my stamps, not just foam ones.

So pleased to see your free stamp! It will be a much used one. Sorry I missed you at AP, I did come by looking for you a few times but you were skiving (your colleagues said you were working hard though!),
