This was the card I entered. The stamps are Marvels of Nature II. The brad that is holding the ribbon onto the card was the wrong colour so I rubbed stazon all over it then dipped it immediately into some embossing powder.

Last week I won a little card competition on the Fiskarettes website which I was so thrilled about as I never usually win anything. The prize was a Fiskars Drill (which I have been hankering after for months), a couple of squeeze hand punches, a scissor sharpener and a multi tool. Well today my prize arrived and I have to say that Fiskars have outdone themselves with these products. The drill is fabulous. Anyone who knows me will know that I am cack handed and accident prone so am lethal with an electric drill. I have tried drilling a domino before with an electric drill but the results left a lot to be desired. I broke a drill bit, the drill made an awful whinny noise and I nearly drilled through the kitchen worktop (sshhh.... don't tell my husband). The Fiskars drill however is fool proof - heck if I can use it anyone can! I drilled a nice neat hole in a triangle domino and a bottle cap with no effort at all (and more importantly the worktop escaped harm and so did my fingers!) The squeeze punches are great too - really easy to use and the medium circle is a perfect size for the centre of the flattened bottle cap.
