Goodmorning and happy Friday to you all!! It's hard to believe we are 4 weeks in to the summer hols and all we have manged to do is attend 2 childrens parties, chicken pox has a lot to answer for.
It was hubby's and I anniversary on Wednesday and today is A's birthdays so it's not been all that bad.

Today I want to share with you my dt card for Stampin Up For The Weekend. Gunn is our host this week and we have an amazing theme


Animals...cats...dogs...anything with 4 legs really.

We have one of our fabulous SFTW candy boxes up for grabs so what you waiting for get crafting and see you over here soon.

I dug out my wonderful Sugar Nellie stamps and decided to have a wee colouring session. Not only was it great fun but I was so relaxed afterwards , it was just what the doctor ordered. For my card I used 'Foxy' and as usual it was coloured using my blue promarkers.

what do you think??

I'll look out for some challenges when I get some more time. And if your on the look out for a couple of great challenges please check out Charisma and Sarah Hurley challenges.

Ta ta for now

Christie Angel

Good evening all, how are you? I have had a very busy day today so this is me just sitting down. I've had my two nieces staying with me so having 4 children to look after or 5 if you include hubby has been pretty hectic but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Tonight I have my dt card for Sarah Hurley Challenges. Our theme this week is


For me blue is my favourite colour when it comes to colouring with my promarkers and my latest addiction is gingham so out came Sarah's OZ collection papers. These are so lush and the best thing is you never run out lol


MAWTT-favourite things (gingham paper,nesties,ms punch,gems,punched flowers)
PAPERPLAY CHALLENGES- things with wings

Well better get off to bed as I seem to be getting to there later and later these days. It's amazing how much I can get done once the children are in bed lol

I have all my dt cards up to date so I might actually have time just to play.So take care and hope you pop by real soon.

Catch a Star

Good morning all, how are we all today? I'm sorry I haven't been around much but I do have a very good reason for that. My eldest son caught the chicken pox virus a couple of weeks ago and just when we had a normal day again it seems my youngest son lewis has caught it aswell. Yesterday only a couple of spots made an appearance but I'm sure more have appeared today. The only upside to it all it's the school holidays so the children are not missing school or nursery and I'm not having to take time out from work.

So today is the start of a new challenge at Charisma and it's my challenge week

our theme is


We have 3 great sponsors this week

Crafty Emma Store, Pink Cat Studio and The Stamping Boutique.
