Let's Drink To 2013 ...and a giveaway!

I hope everyone is in fine fettle after the Xmas and New Year celebrations and now hangover free.  I was quite abstemious this year as I was working most of Christmas and very early on New Year's Day.  Even so I have participated in LIM's current challenge, DRINKS, my first card of 2013. 

I used a freebie stamp that came with a craft mag, which was stamped in Vintage Sepia Versafine and heat embossed. I cut around the cup and saucer separately and mounted with silicone glue to give dimension. I added an embossed border to 'ground' the image and the dreadful pun was computer generated!

In this first post of the year I'd like to thank my faithful crafty followers for all their kind comments and support by offering a small giveaway, something I meant to do last year but never got around to. 

Up for grabs are several stamps, a packet of brads, two rolls of ribbon, one roll of raffia lace, a bag of unused embellies from my stash and a roll of double sided tape.  To be in with a chance of winning just leave me a comment below and I will announce the winner on Sat 13th January.   

Happy Crafting.
