Another Little Sneak

Ooh, have a look at these cute little car buttons! Just like the other car buttons we had, but with a PINK background this time! I love these, and I can't wait to use them. And here's a bit of a look at what I'm getting together for the kit...

Pink cars, and campervans with pink suitcases on top. Perfect for girly roadtrips! Pink, orange and black are the main colours in this one, and I think it is one of my favourite kits so far.

I've got these with a blue background too, and a more boyish Roadtrip Kit. Be back tomorrow with some more sneaks...!

A Little Sneak Peek...

Well, I've taken quite a few photos this afternoon, but because the sky has gone all overcast they haven't turned out so well, so I'll just show you a few little sneaks for now. I might have to retake these photos because these are soooo much cuter in real life!

This is something new I thought I'd try...some felt flowers topped with a Spotty Fabric Covered Button. What do you think?

I've still got a few things to add to this one, but the pack these will be in is starting to look a bit like this...

And here are a few of the new buttons that will be available on Friday. Cute little Teddy Bear Buttons...

Babushka Buttons...

And seeing as the Spotty Mix Buttons were soooo popular last time, I thought I would offer button packs for different colours. Here's a peek at the Blue Mix Buttons I've got made up so far...

And our blog hopping giveaway has now ended and we have a winner. There were 77 entries, so I printed them out and let Em draw a "ticket" out of the bowl. And the winner is.....

Amanda73!! Congrats Amanda, I'll get your prize out to you asap.

Stay tuned over the next few days for lots of sneak peeks of all the new goodies.

Grab Our Button!

So, I have to tell you that I'm the most technologically challenged person I know, so I am very surprised that I actually managed to make a button for the blog!! There is a code underneath the Purple Pumpkin on our sidebar so you can put it onto your blog too. I know most of you probably know how to do it, but if you're technologically challenged like me, here's how to do it....

Copy the code (highlight it and hit Control C)
Then go to "Design" at the top of your own blog
Go to "Add a Gadget"
Select "HTML/Java Script"
Paste the code where it says "content"

And voila! You will have a little Purple Pumpkin on your sidebar, that will take you straight over here when you click on it :)

I'll be back soon with some sneak peeks of some new kits!
