Blog Candy Entries

Good morning everyone and what a day!! It's blowing a gale and raining! I'm sat in the conservatory at the moment and it feels like the roof is gonna come off...I suppose that is the downside of living with the sea right behind your house!!
Well, today is the final day of my blog candy contest so you've still got time to enter if you would like to win a Magnolia stamp. I can't believe how many people have been such good sports and entered!! Also, I can't believe how much my counter has jumped in the last couple of weeks - it's now up to 3,600!!!

I thought I would show you all the entries I've had 'cause I've also had a couple by e-mail. They are all wonderful!! One thing I have learned from looking at them is that I definitely need to buy more stash!!!!

I've Been Awarded....

I was given this award by Han - what a sweetie!! I don't know about me inspiring you Han, I think it's the other way around!!!Thought I'd pass this on to Fran and Jackie for all their help and Tara, because she makes me feel less guilty about all the stash I buy!!!

Heart's Desire!

The PTW challenge this week is:
"....please can we see some hearts (or a heart lol!) on your cards this week? Already done your Valentines cards? How about doing a wedding/anniversary/engagement or birthday card? We don't mind which - as long as there's a heart or two....or three....!!!......"
I've used a Rubadubadoo stamp coloured with Marvy pens and some glamour dust added to the large heart. This has been layered with my Nestabilities rectangles and two tiny Papermania sticky hearts added to the image. Paper is from Pink Petticoat and sentiment is Doodlebug (I think!) Ribbon and hearts are from my stash.

I've Been Tagged!

Denise has tagged me with the Middle Name Game! These are the rules:-
You must post the rules before you give your answers.You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name. After you've been tagged, you need to up-date your blog with your middle name and answers. At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and need to read your blog for details. I hate my middle name so try not to giggle too much when you read it! It's Maxine!!Married for eleven years to Tony.A born worrier (my Mum used to be just the same!)Xtremely(!) chatty! I'm very reserved when you first meet me but when I get to know someone, you can't shut me up!!Internet Junkie......can't get enough of it and I spend too much time online!Number 7. I'm the younges…


The challenge on Tilda & Co., this week is:
"...for this week's challenge I would like to see you all make something "baby" related. Be it a card for a newborn baby, be it an album for baby photos? What about a scrapbook page about a baby? Anything goes once again so let your imagination take over on this one......"

Kept this one simple. Papers are Pink Petticoat Little Fleurs and "girl" is from PP Hot Gossip. I used this cute Magnolia stamp and coloured her with Brushables with some glamour dust on her wings. Both the image and the word "girl" have been attached with foam pads. Sentiment at the top is a rubber stamp, ribbon is from Dovecraft, and button brads and flowers are from my craft box.I would like to say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dear friend Jose. She's on holiday at the moment but still has internet access, so Jose, if you're reading this, hope you're having a great holiday and will see you soon. Will post her birthd…
