I won!!!

thank you so much to tracey for my fab blog candy win.

For those of you that know me you will know that i am fairly new to blogging and don't really get much time to blog hop. But...this week i have been off for a few days due to a problem with my leg so i have been practising linking things to my blog and obviously i have eventually got the hang of it. I am over the moon today and it has been a perfect end to a miserable week.

See you soon

Where have i been ????

What sort of blogger am i ??? I have completely neglected my blog and the reason....

my niece's wedding which is this Saturday.

She asked me to make her the order of service cards which i did....then she asked me to make her a guest book which i did....and then she asked me to help with the table plan board..

Well here they are the reason for my absense...I am so pleased with myself but have to say i have treasured all the fantastic comments i have received from my wonderful trimmie friends.. thanks girls...xxxx

spa weekend...oooooooohh

I am off for a lovely long spa break with one of my best friends "Wendy" the men are going to silverstone for the weekend and so my friend and i have booked ourselves into a rather swanky hotel in oxfordshire for 4 days of pampering!!!!

thought i would show you the 2 wedding cards i have made in the last week. Between now and December we have 6 weddings to go of them being my niece's. She has asked me to make the order of service cards and also a guest book!!! So once i get back from the pampering i need to get my finger out and make a start on the cards and the book.

Have a fab weekend xxx

creative craft challenges

As you may know i am a member of the DT for creative craft challenges and the theme this week was "summer loving" using a digi stamp provided most graciously by stichy bear.

this is my little mermaid card i made...she is soooooooooo cute. I used some glossy accents for her shell top and head-dress, coloured her with promarkers and used DCWV backing papers from "pocket full of posies" If you get chance pop over to this challenge blog and have a look at the superb sponsors we have and enter one of our challenges. Just click on the link banner on the right of my blog.

Have a great evening xx

July 4th 2010

Good Evening and welcome back to my blog.

Back to work this week..reality has now returned after my lovely what have i been doing craftwise. Over at trimcraft Eiglas organised an un-loved stamp swop and this is the stamp that i received...a lovely peter rabbit stamp. Also over at trimcraft there is a colour challenge running so i decided to enter this with the new stamped image.

I worked from a sketch that was in a mag a while ago

Cards i made at craft club on Tuesday evening

These are 2 of the cards i made at craft club on Tuesday evening. We meet up every week from 6 til 8 and have a wonderful time.

this week the theme was "goody bags"

one of the club members has to provide everyone with a goody bag and the contents then have to be used to make a project.

my super duper friend Sandra provided the goody bags this week and this is what i made
