Give aways galore!

It's a happy first birthday to the UK dares blog. Previously known as The Speshals, to celebrate our first year and move into our second year, we have moved to a new blog, given ourselves a bit of a makeover and a new name too.

Plus we have not one but TWO wonderful prizes but you need to be quick to take part! The very talented Cheryl Johnson is running an online creative photography course and we have one subscription for that course as well as a one month subscription to The Design Collective online scrapbooking classes. The winner will be chosen by random draw from all the comments that are left on the relevant post over at our new home.

We have gone for a circles theme for our inspiration this week and a sneak peek of my page is here. We always love to see how our theme has inspired you, so please remember to let us know if you have played along. Even better if you can link to your own creation, after all that is why we have given ourselves the new name Collectively Yours, because we want everyone to feel that they can join in the fun with us!

As well as this giveaway on the dares blog, we are also running one on our Design Collective blog to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day. For the chance to win a one month subscription to The Design Collective AND a goody box of stash, just leave your comment on our blog over there (again the winner will be by a random draw). And if you are a subscriber for the current month, don't forget to log into the forums and check out all the prize challenges we have got running for the weekend!

I've had to come back and edit in cos I have just realised this is my 100th post on my blog SO cos I am in that sort of mood, I will run my own random draw from all people that leave a comment on here too. But not any old comment, nope I want you to tell me a joke and note that the cheesier the better (I love school boy humour btw!) It will be a goody box of stash (and not any old junk that I have lying around either, I will include some luvverly stuff that will probably pain me to parcel up :D) So, jokes on this post by midnight Monday British Summer Time :) But please remember to keep them publishable and also include a way for me to get back in touch with you if your name is drawn as the winner.

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning.

The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee".

The husband said, " You are in charge of the cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."

Wife replies, "No you should do it, and besides it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee."

Husband replies, " I can't believe that, show me."

So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and shows him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says:

Ok, I admit - I couldn't think of ANY jokes AT ALL - so I did what any resourceful girl would and looked one up on the internet. This one is publishable - I THINK - and it made me laugh - I hope it makes you laugh too.

A kilted Scotsman was walking down a country path after finishing off a considerable amount of whisky at a local pub. As he staggered down the road, he felt quite sleepy and decided to take a nap, with his back against a tree.

As he slept, two young lasses walked down the road and heard the Scotsman snoring loudly. They saw him, and one said, "I've always wondered what a Scotsman wears under his kilt."

She boldly walked over to the sleeping man, raised his kilt, and saw what nature had provided him at his birth.

Her friend said, "Well, he has solved a great mystery for us, now! He must be rewarded!" So, she took a blue ribbon from her hair, and gently tied it around what nature had provided the Scotsman, and the two walked away.

Several minutes later, the Scotsman was awakened by the call of nature, and walked around to the other side of the tree to relieve himself. He raised his kilt...and saw where the blue ribbon was tied. After several moments of bewilderment, the Scotsman said...

"I dinna know where y'been lad...but it's nice ta'know y'won first prize!"

Bex said...
