Steph's Candy a must if you like PINK and Penny Black, awesome!!. Go on have a look. You've got till Feb 3rd......

Two fab awards....

Wow!! I'm really thrilled to get these two awards from my friend Elaine. Thanks very much Elaine I'm really chuffed. Pop over and see her cards they are amazing she is a really talented lady!!

I've been tagged!!!

Ive been tagged 5 times this week by Elaine, Lynsey, Carly, Leanne and Sharon. The rules are to go to the folder on your computer where you keep your pics, and pick the 6th folder then the 6th pic in that folder. Well here it is, my two Grandsons at Halloween last year. Daniel (3) is holding the pumkin that his Uncle Matt made for them. He was pointing out to me that it didn't have a nose..... so to keep him happy I had to carve a nose in Christopher was too busy enjoying CBeebies. We had a great time after that dooking for apples and getting soaked.....later on Daniel dressed up as a pumkin an Christopher was a Pirate.

I have to pass this on to six people but as it's really late I'll do it tomorrow. Take care.
UPDATE-----I'm passing this on to, Diane,Debbie, Maria, Susan, Gina and Jane


Hi everyone just thought I'd let you all know that Carly has put out a DT call for her challenge blog Charisma Cardz. Pop over and see her post. It's a great team to be on. I've had loads of fun since we started and everyone is so nice.

Hello again, a couple of cards I did for orders yesterday.
The engagement card...BP is from an album I bought ages ago and the paper was inside.The embossed paper is from the Works, and the lilac paper from papermania. I used a Fiskars border punch, and the image I was very kindly given by my friend Carly in a swap. I love it so much...I coloured it with my Copics.I added a piece of printed Vellum and the flower and ribbons are from my stash.
The Guy card.
This card was made with a gift bag...yep good old gift bag. I bought it a few weeks ago 'cause I loved the bold silver and black stripes and knew it would be good for male cards. The image is Cuddly Buddly Techie Teens and I added fibres and brads to finish. The sentiment on both cards is done on my computer.Hope you like them and thanks for popping in.

40th guys card...

This card is also an order for a girl in Hubby's work. She gives me all her Christmas cards to do every year and now started with her Birthdays too, she calls me her nice card I've never met her but she sounds a good laugh. Anyway back to the card. I used HOTP BP and Papermania papers, the ribbon is also Papermania. The decoupage is from Craft Creations and the froth on the pint is done with liquid pearls, if you zoom in you will see it a bit clearer it gives quite a good effect. I'm still doing cards for orders so will catch up with my blogging in a few days. Thanks a lot for looking I really appreciate it.

I'm really busy this weekend with card orders and haven't had time to do any challenges :-( but hopefuly I'll catch up with them tomorrow or Monday. Thanks for popping in.

Green and Purple...

Not a common combination but I thought the colours looked okay. This card is for an order. Not one of my best I have to say so I hope she likes it. ....
I used Dovecraft papers, fiskars border punch, silk flower coloured with Copics and CB Swiss Dots emb. folder. champagne flutes Sizzix dye, and the sentiment was done on my computer. The camera hasn't picked up the purple very well it looks too blue in the picture, the ribbon and the flower are really a lovely shade of purple as are the bps. Thanks for looking
