Sending you my love

Hello my friends.. first Happy New Year to all of you :-) Have a fantastic 2011, stay healthy and mostly happy!

Today i have a bunch of interesting info's for you you to share… first off…

At “Just Magnolia” my friend Bev made some great changes… the challenge site has been changed to Just Magnolia and Just Hanglar. Since Hanglars are now for all of us available on Ebay Uk the group thought it would be a great idea to offer the option to join the weekly challenge with a Magnolia card OR a Hanglar card. This weeks challenge is “Anything goes” and is sponsored by “The Ribbon Girl” Thanks Mary and Andrea!!!

I was able to combine both challenges for today using Inges’ great sketch over on the Friday Sketcher blog. I used some My Minds Eye paper, which i got from my friend Tammi as a present. I do not know the name of the papers.

Hopefully you find time to play along and post your own creation on the Friday Sketcher blog. This week “7 Kids College Fund” is sponsoring our blog with some REALLY nice candy :-) The fabulous Sassy Sketcher girls who made a card for this week are: Aud, Bea, Inge, Jacque, Janneke, Jeanette, Jorunn & Tanja

Claudia_Rosa_Sending You My Love 
colors used: Bordering Blue, Pretty in Pink, Going Grey, Blush Blossom, So Saffron, Vintage photo, Ruby Red, Mellow Moss and River Rock

As for the other news…
Some of my crafting friends and i have decided to open a blog where we are going to update with some of our crafting things we do not need anymore.
As of for me… aim going to add some of my Stampin up stuff later on and my friends will be adding some Thomas Kinkade stamps and many other brands  meaning you are going to find lots of different things all at one spot.
For now you can find at

Cute Stamps for Less

great gently used stamps from the following companies:
Whiff Of Joy
Magnolia Tilda
Motivet Dexter/Doraline
Motivet Hilda/Lucy

well below retail price (20% – 34/35% off)
We are going to post internationally.
Since this is a blog hosted by several girls we have one email address you want to get in contact with us.

Now as for the winner of the Lilli of the Valley Blog candy.. kindly sponsored by Lili of the Valley…. Remember the store re-opens January 4. that’s when you will be able to order all the new images you have seen on the LOTV Inspiration blog.

Thank you for the absolutely amazing response and all your help spreading the word for me xoxoxo

the lucky winner is Astrid Burkh. please contact me within 2 days at to claim your prize.

Tomorrow iam going to offer something else as candy. You are going to be surprised :-) it not related to stamping but i think most of us are using those things and are going to enjoy it :-) you will see. It is something fun.
