New Challenge - Flower Power

Hiya Everyone,

Well, today's the day for a new challenge over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog.  The theme this time is Flower Power and is open to your own interpretation.  Up for grabs is a £15 Joanna Sheen gift voucher for a lucky winner as well as a Guest Designer spot.

My card has been made with "from the gang" House Mouse feathered friends stamp set.  I have coloured the image in with my promarkers and layered up the image for a bit of depth.  The papers are from a MME paperstach that was a freebie from a magazine ages ago.  It's a sample I made a while ago which luckily fits the theme so I thought I'd use it as I'm still not really making much right now.

I hope to see you all join us in with the new challenge!!!

Thanks for looking!

My latest creation!

Hiya everyone,

I'm afraid it isn't anything crafty as I've not really made much at all over the last few months but it is definately one of the best things I ever made.  We have been given a due date of the 2nd November based on the scan so we're all really excited about having a little brother or sister for Tayla in time for Christmas!

It is so much more tiring the 2nd time round especially as I have Tayla to keep amused but luckily she's a delight to be with (most of the time!).

This is her last week when I decided to buy a load of painting gear for her from the Early Learning Centre.  I think we have a little Van Gogh in the making! :D

There is a new challenge starting at the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog starting on Sunday 29th April so be sure to pop by and check out all the fab DT inspiration!

Thanks for looking!

My exciting news!!!!

Hiya Everyone,

I have a BIG announcement to make - Tayla is going to be getting a baby brother or sister in the not to distant future.  I am sooooo excited by this new addition to our family I just can't tell you.  I was wanting to wait till I've had my 12 week scan but there are certain people who are so excited that they just can't be trusted to keep the news to themselves!!! Lol

I have been really out of sorts for the last several weeks and haven't been crafting or blogging anywhere near as much as normal.  I have been so tired that after I get in from work I haven't really been up to doing anything much at all - crafty or otherwise.

I'm hoping that I get back to normal and get back into my craft room soon!!!

We're not finding out if it's going to be pink or blue so any guesses? Lol

Thanks for looking!

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge - So Sweet!


It's that time again for a fresh new challenge over at the House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge.  The theme this time has been picked by DT member Jennifer Woodward which is

So sweet

My card has been made with one of the new (ish) Happy Hopper stamps from Joanna Sheen called "Hoppy Birthday" and a fab DCWV adhesive fabric paperstack which is soooo lush!

I have coloured the image with my promarkers and the sentiment I think is another car boot bargain.  I really love the teal and chocolate combo - it's one I've not used for a while but works well with the chocolate box image.
