Anyone else In UK or Ireland having post problems?

Heya everyone!!

Hope you are all well :)
I was lucky enough to win 2 seperate prize last November and December that were from lovely people in America.....however neither of these packages arrived. Both of the ladies were very kind and re-sent the packages....but they have both gone missing again!! So in all that in 4 deliveries from U.S.A that have never arrived, which is really annoying and sad :(
I was just wondering is anyone else having problems with mail from U.S.A going missing? I don't think any of the items were tracked so I think I will just have to give up on them now. Please let me know if anyone else has had similiar problems?

Thanks a million and Happy Crafting,
Fiona x

Exciting News.....My First Ever Karen's Doodles DT Card!!!

Hey Everyone!
 
A few weeks ago I applied for a position on the Karen's Doodles DT, and a few days later I recieved an email to offer me a position :) I have been dying to let everyone know but I decided to leave it until I had my first card ready to go and was officially up and running on the design team :) I have been a massive fan of Karen's Doodles stamps ever since I started using digi stamps so I am 100% over the moon delighted :)

So onto the challenge then.... Karen's Doodles Challenge # 98

This time around our theme is "Celebrate" so a nice and easy one!! Anyone can enter our challenges but remember only entries using Karen's Doodles images will be eligible for the first place prize and Card of the Week. You can find lots of amazing digi stamps in the Karen's Doodles store, so come on and join us! 

Here is my card....


I have used this adorable digi stamp called "Dragon Birthday" (available HERE) which I have coloured with my Promarkers. Now as for the papers, I can't be 100% sure but I think the bunting paper is from Crate Paper and the polka dot and blue papers are from First Edition. I have used my Martha Stewart zig zag edge punch along the bottom of the card and added a few mini buttons and a Craftwork Cards sentiment to finish it off.
