Happy Birthday to The Octopode Factory Friday challenge!

Big birthday congrats to TOFF today -  1 year's worth of fabulous and fun challenges!!  If you havn't yet seen these cute and quirky designs from Lily Chilvers, then head on over to her etsy shop (after you've finished reading this!).

I made this card wih the bee digis and kept it simple with the black and yellow colour scheme and a computer printed sentiment.  That's what I love about these digis - they're so versatile as they fit right in with the current hot trend for mixed media art and journalling and also work brilliantly with CAS designs :)  Keep reading for news of a great giveaway from TOFF!

I would like to enter this into the following -

Now for that Giveaway challenge that I mentioned earlier - for all the details head on over to TOFF but I can tell you that Lily will be giving away some digis and that the DT members have come up with a little something each as a bonus!

I wanted to help out with getting ready for the Xmas season as we all know how quickly that comes around so I made a selection of gift tags - 3 wine bottle tags and 3 present tags (the wine is not included, sorry!!)

Head on over to TOFF and join in the birthday theme :)
