I'm not usually very lucky with competitions and giveaways, but this year I have entered lots, and have been a winner on three separate occasions!
Here is my third free gift which arrived yesterday. Isn't it lovely? It's called Beachcomber and was made and sent to me by Vikki of Giddystuff. Please take a look at her other work, click here for her Folksy shop, here for her MISI shop and here for her blog
Just when I thought I'd have a little rest from photography after nine fairly intensive weeks of the OU course, I found that another of my online colleagues, Tracy of Madaboutbags, has issued a nine week summer photographic challenge on Facebook, this weeks theme is reflections. if you would like to view my entries I am Joy Shallcross on Facebook.
