My birthday

I would like to say thankyou to all my buddies who sent me birthday presents last week, it was like christmas come early and you were all so generous.I will try and get some thankyou cards made and sent out as soon as I can.

I would also like to say thankyou to Emma for the great Candy I won the other week, it's fab.

Well bye bye for now my wee spare half hour is up, off to do the boring stuff like ironing, emptying dishwasher etc I will stop there as its' depressing me just thinking about it.

Happy blogging

Yes, thought I would apologise for being a bad blogger since last week.Hubby has been sent out to Romania with work and since last Wednesday it's been bedlam.I have entered no blog challenges, left few comments, no blog hopping and the worst of all no crafting and to be honest I feel like my limb has been cut off.

I have arranged a craft night with my friend and buddy Susie this Wednesday and hopefully I will get some crafting done tomorrrow.I am in the middle of making a box card for my sister in-law, who is bridesmaid to a friend of hers.The weddings not until the middle of October so still got a wee while to go.

I will try and keep in touch the best I can and please visit me and leave a wee comment, even just to say hi.

Missing you all

MAWTT Challenge 11-Clare C's Sketch

It's time to get the Kleenex tissues out, no I haven't still got the flu but my final week as guest DT member over at MAWTT.You have probably heard this a million times now but I really did have a fab time.I got a buzz knowing that I had the sketch on the Friday before the challenge started and then had to wait til the thursday before I could upload my card.Your probably thinking she's mad but it made me happy and you can't put a price on that.So for the final time thankyou to all the DT members on MAWTT and I would like to wish them every success in all they do.


This weeks prize up for grabs is a set of stamps from Julie their resident sponser so pop over to MAWTT where you will find the link to her shop.


If you are up for the challenge below is Clare C's sketch and yet again its a good one.The theme this week is stitching whether it be real or faux.

This is my interpretation on Clare's sketch.To be honest when I first received this sketch my mind went utterly and completely blank, not that there's much in there at the best of times.So after a night of no inspiration whatsoever and worrying that I have lost my mojo, I decided that perhaps a good nights sleep is in order.Well it worked, the following day my mum mentioned she loved my maggie stamp and as it's her birthday the day after mine I just had to dedicate this card to my mum.

Here's the recipe

backing papers -NME bloom and grow
buttons ,sentiment and felt border-NME bloom and grow
circle-friskers template
scalloped circle- scissors
gem stone- value Papermania
stamp- Maggie with Flowers from Funky Kits
cardstock-The Papermill
Stitching-Whisper markers

Please leave a wee comment or become a follower that way I can pop over to your blog
