I've Won Some Blog Candy!!


Can't believe it - it's the first time I've won some blog candy and doesn't it put you in a good mood! even after the night I had (will explain more in a mo). There's a site I visit, Beauty Lies Within (link on the left of my blog) and I find it really good....very inspiring. Anyway, Mary Jo was holding a little blog candy competition so thought I would have a go! Think my luck is changing for 2008 cause I also won £35 on the Lottery!!!!! Better than a kick up the backside!

Anyway, back to last night.......I was having my best pal, Adele, over for a curry and drinks cause, with Tony away, have trouble finding babysitters, etc., and it all started well until the kids started playing me up. They're usually really well behaved but they kept coming downstairs, which is understandable for the first couple of times but NOT after six or seven! Then they were running into each others rooms and generally misbehaving. They were still awake at 1.00 am this morning. However, horrible Mummy got her own back.....I got them up early this morning! They won't win with me! Got another mate coming round tonight so I dare them to misbehave!!

Back to the card....I did say you would probably see this paper again! I'm using up the rest of the sheets I printed off the computer. It's Pink Petticoat Blueberry (just in case you didn't know!) and the image is a PB Stickeroo. The sentiment is a sticker from MAMBI and I added three Papermania sticky jewels to the image to finish. Hope you like!
Kids are off to a late Christmas party this afternoon so sneaky Mummy will be able to get a couple of hours shut eye then, hopefully, the boys will be so exhausted after their early start and party, that they will go to sleep on time! I live in hope!!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
