Anyone for Cream Tea?

Oooooh yummy scrummy is just about all I can say about this ~ I actually dribbled a little bit when I opened the last envelope sent to me from the incredibly wonderful Emma... ;)

I advise all you chocolate lovin' ribbon addicts {it's not just me, surely...} to hop on over to Ribbon Mad NOW cos the new April kit is seriously lush :)

Oh & you can see more cards I made with it { & a truly beautiful LO by Angie Woolfall } here :) And just for the record, No, I was not a wee bit tipsy when taking the pics ~ they have an "artistic" angle thing going on... ;)

It's Cute Card Thursday peeps...

...& this week we're all about people.
I am SO in love with this stamp at the mo ~ what a sweetie! The pp is from an old BG pad I found lurking in a draw. There's a fabby prize up for grabs this week too, so make sure you join in here :)

Tilda & friends has a yummy Dala Tilda stamp on offer this week ~ I get the honour of picking the winner for it so make sure you're extra nice to me... ;)

AND the very lovely Sue has some candy on her blog too! Included in the stash is one of my very fave Magnolia's ~ have a peek at Sue's blog here.

Big thanks to everyone who emailed & commented wishing the li'l horror Happy Birthday ~ he had a fab day :)

Happy Birthday little horror...

Just a quick post to say I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend ~ I was working for most of it, but I did still manage to find time to eat my way through a "few" easter eggs!
Hopefully tonight I'll be able to catch up on comments, big thank yous to everyone who has been to say hello this week :)
It's the little horrors birthday tomorrow ~ if the sun keeps shining I'll take a pic of his birthday card & post it a bit later!

Mmmmmm, chocolate...

All things chocolatey is the theme for Tilda & Friends this week ~ yum!
I took inspiration from the packet of Minstrels I just happened to be munching on when I made my ATC {Heard of method acting? Well this is method crafting ~ I highly recommend it... ;)}
You can see the fantabulous creations from the rest of the DT here & there's a little treat up for grabs this week too, so if I were you I'd join in the chocolate creativeness...

busy, busy...

...but it's all DT stuff & I'm not allowed to show you yet ~ sorry!
I must say a BIG thank you to Deb for this award, I think you're rather fabby too ;)

I'm passing this on to everyone's blog that I visit, so if I've ever stopped by & said hello ~ it's yours, because I wouldn't come for a blog visit unless I thought you were great would I? ;)

Boys to men...

Here's my card for this weeks Tilda & Co challenge ~ pretty simple really cos as the big horror is constantly reminding me "boys don't like all them ribbons & stuff..."
You may have noticed that some of the DT {me included} have felt it was time to move on & let someone else have a chance to join the DT ~ there's a call-out here if you fancy it :)

Saturday, 8 March 2008

I highly reccomend you hop on over to Katharina's blog ~ this girl is beyond fantastic & just got asked to be a part of the High Hopes DT ~ Well done honey!
To celebrate, Katharina is being an absolute tease & showing us some yummy looking sneek peaks of some not yet released new High Hopes stamps & giving us a chance to win them!
You can see it all here :)

Candy winner!

A big thank you to everyone who joined in & an extra BIG thank you to those of you who understood that all I actually asked you to do was link up the blog candy post somewhere on your blog if you wanted to double your chance of winning...

So the winner, as chosen out of a rather large bucket by the big horror is......Kristine!!!

I recieved a PIF from Annie this week, so as a little extra treat the first 3 who commented on the blog candy post ~ Han, Maddie & Jules ~ will get some stamped mumsilimums & a few other bits from me :)

Email me your addresses please girls {my email addy is over on the right >>>}& I'll get your treats to you as soon as possible!

I hope all you Mummy's had a wonderful Mothers Day!
I was woken by the horrors' & presented with breakfast in bed {ever tried jam sandwiches & chocolate cake at 6:30 in the morning? Followed by a cup of tea made with water from the hot tap? Go on ~ I dare you to... ;) } Thank you darlings!
We spent the afternoon at a ceramic painting workshop and had huge amounts of messy fun! I'll post some pics of our creations as soon as I've collected them :)

So how to finish off a perfect Mothers Day? With a super-bubbly bath, as demonstrated by the lovely Lola :)
