Cat in a Hammock Pt II, An Award, Lots of Blog Candy and the Missing Card!!

Had a lovely relaxing morning......I actually had a lie in for the first time in over a year and it was heaven!! The sun is out this morning after all the rain we had yesterday but it's very windy, however, should be OK for Sam's School Fete this afternoon.

I mentioned last week that when I make a card, I am trying to do a second one using the same stamp and papers so thought I would show the card I had made when I did the Stamp Something challenge. This one doesn't have so much bling on it......just some glitter and mirricard and must admit, I like this one better.

The image is Penny Black, coloured in the same way - Brushables and plenty of glitter, layered onto mirricard and Pink Petticoat papers. Sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly, flower is Prima Sprite and sticky gems are from Papermania.

My blogging buddy Jackie, has also given me this award...., can't believe it as that's the sixth time I have been awarded this.....what an honour and thanks so much Jackie for thinking of me!!

As you will see by some of my previous posts, there is some wonderful blog candy up for grabs at the moment and I've got four more for you! Steph is celebrating 20,000 hits on her blog, Kari is celebrating 5,000 hits, Karen is celebrating starting up her own crafting business and Katharina is celebrating the launch of the new High Hopes stamps. I really recommend visiting these ladies' blogs as their work is outstanding!

Finally, a message to Lewis, Vanessa's youngest, - Sam has at long last, let me have the card you sent him so I could photograph it and here it is!

Isn't it great! and Lewis, your handwriting is fabulous!! Look out Mum....he'll be pinching all your stash!!

Well, that's it for today.......hope you all have a great weekend.

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.

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!

Small Reindeer Bauble

I've been busy making a mess all weekend trying out different types of Christmas cards and other projects so thought I would share a quick project.

This bauble is smaller than the ones I made a little while ago - it will fit on a Christmas Tree whereas the other ones were for room decorations.
Hoping to have a few more projects to share with you very soon.
