Aren't I A Lucky Girl!!


Sorry I couldn't do my posting yesterday but I did try! I sat down to edit the photos to load them on and my PSP wouldn't load properly for some bizarre reason. Anyway, it's all sorted now so here we go.....got lots to show - not from me but from all you kind people out there!


I'll start with the card I made recently for yet another kids birthday party lol! Wasn't that pleased with this one as it was VERY rushed and usually, when I'm not happy with a card, I will throw it to one side and start again but I really didn't have time with this one so had to settle for this.






The image is Stampendous (just love those cheeky monkies!) and I've coloured it with Brushables, c.s. is Bazzill, DP is Doodlebug, sentiment is from High Hopes and brads and ribbon are from my stash. Crikey, that was quick!!!



Look what I won recently!



Jenny at Stamping Moments held a blog candy competition recently and I couldn't believe it when I won! It felt like Christmas opening up the package and seeing all these lovely goodies. Thanks so much Jenny! I would strongly recommend visiting Jen's blog as she is a super talented lady who does absolute wonders with SU supplies.....well worth a visit.

I'm a Member of the Tilda and Friends Forum and took part in the ATC swap this month and would like to share the gorgeous ATCs I received in return.

Next up are two RAKs I received from Jo.......

and from Vanessa......



Look at all those scrummy images!! However, I do owe an apology to Lewis, Vanessa's Son. He made a gorgeous card for my Sam, which Sam loved. However, he loved it so much, he wouldn't give it back to me to photograph and insists on keeping it in his bedroom!! so sorry there's not a photo of it here Lewis!!!

I have also been tagged recently by my SBS-13 Sister, Debi. Thanks for thinking of me Debi, however, going to cheat a bit on this one as I noticed it's one I've done quite recently so if you take a look here, you will see my answers!!
Last, but by no means least I have received an award - not once, not twice, not three or even four times but FIVE TIMES!!!! How chuffed am I!!!!




I received it from the following fabulous ladies - Ila, Vicki May, Debbie, Kes and Vanessa. I take this as a huge compliment and thank you so much. Please take a look at these ladies' blogs as their work is fantastic.


The rules of this award is that I have to pass this on to seven people which is a hard job because there are so many fantastic blogs out there but here's my choice - Jilli, Sue, Jose, Denise, Erin, Dawn and Jenny.

Phew! that was a posting and a half! Teach me not to get so far behind which reminds me, I'm so far behind with my blogging but will be getting round to you all very soon. Hope you all have a great day!

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.







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.
