Pretty in Pink.....

Can't believe I actually put my heating on today - it was 13 degrees here....so cold.

Organised Lewis and Eleanor's school uniforms - washed everything including the new as they both like new things washed, shoes bought, everything ironed and labelled I feel like a weight has been lifted from me !

Just check these out though if you still have school age children - absolutely fantastic.....attach-a-tags

I also managed to make a baby girl's christening card - easily made with my Big Shot Express, Spellbinders and my printer.

I do, I do, I do.......

I made the cards in different colours which complimented
the brides chosen colours.....

Here's Bride Nikki in navy and cream

Black, cream with a bit of bling......

I hope you like Nikki as much as I do !!!

Christmas is coming.....

I decided I was going to start my Christmas cards early this year but ho hum with life as it is at the moment I haven't........until today I had a couple of hours to spare - had a couple of cards to make for someone and then twiddled my thumbs for a moment and 'ching' .....Christmas cards......so here goes....

I absolutely love this stamp and I completely glittered the snowman - and flocked the 'fur' trims on the hat, coat and boots....

I hope you like it.....

'Summer' Holidays...??

Am I the only one who remembers sunny summer holidays - when you used to play out until dark - was never wet and cold ??

Unfortunately we won't be taking a summer holiday this year because we will be spending the time with my MIL and FIL and boy am I craving for that yellow circle in the sky....instead of grey dreary skies....

My MIL isn't too well and the cancer is spreading - it's so so sad - she is so courageous and still manages to smile....

I have made quite a few cards over the past few weeks but have had very little time to sit and blog.

Here is one of my favourite stamps which I have only just recently bought - have been asked to make three wedding cards and knew I wanted to use Bride Nikki from LCI....

I would like to enter this into Ladybugcrafts 'My Favourite Stamp' challenge.
