Good morning peeps how are you all today? It's a sceduled post today as I have nursery drop off this morning then gymnastics. Arran received his award last week at gymnastics so we are hoping he gets his certificate today. I am so proud of my wee scone!!

You should know by now that Thursday means the start of a new challenge over at Charisma. This week the very talented Vee has chosen the theme
boy oh boy

This week we have two prizes up for grabs from Digi stamp boutique and Stamping boutique.

Now I now some of you would avoid them like the plague but we do need them so why not have a go. I chose a baby boy card and used one of my favourite LOTV images, I don't know why I said favourite cause I love them all hee hee.I also used my favourite promarker combo, denim blue and pastel blue. I did however accidently pick up ice grey one for the shading but think I got away with it this time lol

Thankyou for stopping by today and don't forget to check out Sarah Hurley Challenges and SFTW.

Charisma Cardz Challenges- Pink

Goodmorning peeps, how are you all today? I'm hoping the freak rain showers we have had this week will pass so the children can get on the trampoline and me too :-).

As usual I'm frantically trying to cram as much in as possible while Arran is at nursery this morning. I'm hoping I don't get a phone call from the school to collect him early as he got his pre school booster jags and is feeling a bit poorly.

Lewis he is busy painting in the kitchen and I might just live to regret not supervising him. Sophie our pussy cat is sunbathing on the kitchen table right next to his paints. I have this feeling Sophie may not be a black and white cat for much longer and I dont't have time to bath a cat and child!!

Below is my DT card for Charisma this week and i have used a Robyns Fetish digi image.Carol has chosen the theme of

Wedding Favours

Good morning peeps and how are you all today? I'm catching up with a very good friend of mine this morning between nursery pickup, so i'm afraid it's a scheduled post from me.

Another has flown by and because it's Thursday it's time for a new challenge over at Charisma.

It's the amazing Carly's turn to set the challenge theme and she has chosen


This week we have 3 amazing prizes up for grabs so please pop on over here to find out more

This bag was made for the boys at my cousins wedding last week and I can't emphasise enough that it was just genius. It was full of the most amazing toys and sweets which was much to the delight of the wee ones and the big kids too. It kept them amused for hours and it's the perfect keep sake.

In able for me to get an upright picture I had to insert a loo roll, which can I just say resulted in 'the' most horrified expression from Arran. I was quickly reminded that toilet roll was just for wiping bums and winkies lol that was me told then!

It's 11.45pm and my bed is calling me, no I haven't been on the wine hee hee.... just very tired
so take care for now and I'll be back with an update from Sarah and the rest of my teamies from Sarah Hurley Challenges.
