*This is an international card exchange - you send a handmade card to the person above you on the list, and you receive one from the person below you on the list. If that's not enough of a win-win, I also randomly draw a prize winner each month. I do a reveal of all the cards with links to the challenge participants' blogs or online photo galleries - which is a great way to increase exposure to your blog or photo gallery!. Please read the Rules and FAQ's if you want to play along. :~D
Total cards exchanged as of April 1, 2016: 2,007
And we're off! Jo x

Hi Deborah, did you notice there's a spelling mistake on that stamp? How curious. First one to write Z in this comment stream gets a really dodgy crafty candy parcel from me. Hugz

Well, I didn't notice, and after perusing it a bit, I still don't know which thing is misspelled. (My wine knowledge is scant, I'm afraid.) Do you think most people will notice it? Or is it small/obscure enough that it'll go unnoticed? DO you think I need to buy another stamp?

Don't buy another stamp. It's fine. I think it's a lovely background. Just have another glass and no one will notice anyway. You obviously have seen my candy prizes cos you didn't include a Z. It's still up for grabs ladies. Hugz

I see you want a Z for your candy--yah! I agree--don't buy another stamp, Deborah!

Okay, I'm gonna keep it!

Deborah, you can't keep it. You are giving it away. It's lovely. Greta, send me your snail mail address to craftynomad at gmail dot com and I'll send you a little something something. Hugz
