Where is the time going? I just seem so busy at the moment with hardly any time for crafting or blogging and I can't work out why......the kids are back at school so I should have more time to myself but it all seems to be taken up with housework and appointments.....BORING!!! I'm way behind with my challenges and with visiting everyone's blogs, so thought I would say b****** to the housework and start by saying thank you to all you lovely ladies out there who have been sending me things in one form or another.
Firstly to my RAKs I have received over the last couple of days......The following is from my SBS-13 Sister Heather. We did a card swap and she sent me two beautiful cards and some scrummy stamped images of Bella!!

Thank you Heather, the cards are great and the Bellas are fab!
Another really generous blogging buddy of mine is Dawn who sent me a package filled with the new Billy images from Pink Cat Studio and some lovely embellishments. I wasn't having a very good day until I opened her package.....needless to say, it really brought a big smile to my face!

And finally, I received this card and stickers from Vanessa and her Son, Lewis. When we were talking on the phone the other day, Lewis decided that I deserved a sticker and wanted to send me some....bless him!! Thanks Lewis (and Vanessa, of course!)
Now to the Awards Ceremony!!! I received the "You Make My Day Award" from my friend Denise.......

...the "You Cheer Me Up" award from my partner in crime, Vanessa

and finally, this award from my blogging buddy Jackie

Thank you all ladies....I feel honoured that you think of me when you have these awards :) I'm afraid I'm not going to stick to the rules yet again! Instead I'm going to give the "Eye" Award to Denise and Vanessa and the "You Cheer Me Up" Award to Jackie, Dawn and Heather and last but by no means least, I am awarding the "You Make My Day" award to all of you who visit my blog. It's really nice to know that you like to come and see my work and even when there isn't any (like today!!) you still come back to leave a comment. Thank you, it is so appreciated and I just can't believe how many hits I have had in the four months I have been's wonderful!!

Housework, what's that?! Get your priorities right woman, can't have stash sitting unused :). What fab RAKS, lucky you.

Fab awards too, you can add another eye award now as I've just awarded the tilda forum and that would definitely include you :)

Card Requests

Been quite busy recently trying to juggle work, home life and the card requests I have received.  This type of card has proved very popular so here are the ones I have made so far...still have a few more projects and cards to complete before I am able to start on my own!

The two 50 cards do look almost identical however, they are for twins!


Here's the last of my Christmas makes...

Birthday Wreath Card

Saw this design on one of AMD TV shows and fell in love with it immediately so set about making two different projects with the same design.
This is the first...

...a birthday card for a friend of mine.  I haven't quite finished the other project so I will show that another day.
