Just had to ink up some the new c c designs stamps I got from Silly Monkeys Crafts ~ aren't they just the cutest?!
This is one of a few cards I'm sending on to Bubbly Funk as part of their Think Pink event ~ please, please, please go & have a peek here for details of what they're up to.
100% of the proceeds of the event will be donated to Breast Cancer Care.

Something different {with sparkles}...

Tilda & Friends want Something Different this week ~ take your little ATC & make something with it!
I've made a little book for the Big Horror ~ the original idea was that it would be where he wrote his spelling test words each week, but I just had a little peek & he's already filled a few pages with the sweetest little sketches of himself playing footie & fencing :)

CCT are sparkling this week ~ this was an incredibly quick & easy card, but I kinda like how it's turned out :)

There's a gorgeous Nellie stamp to be won & Andrea has given us a little tease of some of the new Christmas Magnolias too!

A big, big thank you for all the well wishes regarding the head ~ the incredibly lovely Dawny P gave me a top tip & it has eased off enough for me to feel almost normal!

Thursday morning hugs to all :)

Here's a quick card card I put together last night using sketch #17 over at the Sketch Saturday blog.

I've woken up with the most awful eye-screaming, head-splitter of a headache, which I'm really not happy about cos I had great plans for today! I was going to work my way through the huge pile of projects I need to get finished, spend an hour or so catching up on everyones blogs, tidy the Big Horrors pit of a bedroom and mow the lawn, but I'm almost crying after just 5 minutes in front of the pc screen ~ oh well, there's always tomorrow!

Hope you all have a happy Tuesday :)

Well peeps, my week has disappeared rather rapidly once again ~ it's been a happy one though so no complaints from me :)

First up to show you is my Tilda & Friends ATC

I used this incredibly sweet Alota girl for this weeks Pink, Blue & Green colour challenge ~ I seem to have
concentrated mostly on the pink element though!

CCT is all about food this week ~ make sure you have a peek at all the scrumminess the DT have created, there are some ribbony delights up for grabs this week too :)

The Kaboodle Doodles challenge for today is to use Non-Traditional Embellishments ~ for reasons I have no explanation for I chose dental floss ~ it does have a whiff of minty freshness about it though... ;)

Happy Sunday everyone, hopefully I'll be able to make a start on my blog-hop catch-up later ~ we're off to a couple of parties now, why does it feel like the Horrors have a far more exciting social life than me?

Love is in everyday moments...

The My Time to Craft challenge this week is *Bright & Bold* ~ a perfect excuse to snip into some of my scrummy Daisy Bucket papers :)
Love this little sentiment too ~ just perfect with the lovely Whiff Of Joy Willow.

Just a short post today ~ having 2 extra horrors in the house has worn me out completely! I did get to have a lovely baby snuggle this morning though ~ luckily baby started wailing before I got too broody... ;)

Baby crazy...

No CCT card from me just yet ~ no time to finish it off due to the fact I spent my night with my best friends incredibly excited kids who were eagerly awaiting a phone call to tell them whether they had a new little sister or brother :) {Must admit to being more than a little excited myself ~ it's much more fun when it's someone else in labour!}
I managed to quickly whip up this card at about 6:30 this morning ready for them to take to their new little sister. Thank goodness I coloured in two images when doing Jaqcui's card!

My ATC for Tilda & Friends is here...

We have the lovely Steph joining us this week, so do go & check out all the yummies the DT have created :)

Have a good day peeps ~ I'm off to cuddle a teeny tiny baby!

*Llongyfarchiadau Jacqui!*

**a.k.a What is the daftest Welsh word you can put on a card?

As soon as I saw the challenge over at the Scrummy Stash Cafe I giggled ~ time to dig out a stack of alphabet rub-ons & turn a card Welsh!

This is on its way to Jacqui who has just become Grandma to the very cute Charlie ~ head on over to her blog for some adorable pics :)

Cos I've used some BG Oh Baby! Boy pp I can sneakily enter this into the new BG challenge blog too ;)

Llongyfarchiadau really is Congratulations in welsh not just a word I made up to get rid of some leftover rub-ons!


Remember this card?Well I'm incredibly over-the-moon chuffed to be able to tell you that the super lovely Jayne Harvey of Stamposaurus liked it enough to ask me to make up some sample cards using other stamp sets of hers {insert big, huge, massive grin ;)}.
I honestly can't praise these stamps enough ~ they are absolute cuties! {an added bonus is the fact that the stamps are top quality & Jaynes service is fab!}

Here are the cards I made with these stamps ~ Ellie is quite possibly the most darling little elephant ever!

Happy crafting peeps!

Forever Friends...

The second challenge is up on the Kaboodle Doodles blog & this week we want to see some spottiness!
I've used papers from the {girls} Mini Card Kit for this piece of superbright madness ~ it's a bit zingy, but I likes it ;)

Thank you...

Two gorgeous bloggy faves of mine Dawny & Caz have given me this delicious looking award ~ thank you!

I'm gonna pass this on to everyone on the T&F forum cos all 5 of those words up there on that award make me think of all of you :)

Dark, wet & generally just horrid... I apologise in advance for the rather pants pictures!

My Alota stamps arrived yesterday {incredibly fantastic service} & I managed to scrape just enough mounting foam together to mount them up.
I used Mojo Mondays' sketch #51 for this little sweetie

And then made this little fella cos he's just soooo cute I couldn't not ink him up!

Happy Friday!

...seems Mr. BT is not only shockingly yummalicious, he's also good at his job. So my phone's fixed. And I don't get to stare at him {while dribbling slightly} anymore...

I'll get over it... ;)

CCT are Pretty in Pink this week ~ my stash is seriously lacking in pinkness...Hmmmm, must remedy that... ;)

The gorgeous DT examples & details of the challenge are here.

I did manage to get a few cards made during my enforced pc absence & rediscovered some long forgotten stamps. How cute is this li'l sweetie?!

I have a couple more ready to show you over the weekend too :)

I'm sooooo behind in my blog-hopping that I think it'll be easiest to just start all over again! Not right now though cos I have a new book that needs it's spine crackin' {those who know me will be well aware just how exciting this is for me ~ I feel eternal guilt to the darling who took me out to lunch & was promptly ignored while I sat & read whichever Harry Potter had been released that day...}

Right, enough I think. I really must learn when to stop cyber~nattering...

Did it work??

If you're actually, really reading this I guess it did ;)
While sneakily using boy-next-doors' laptop I set this to post right about now {yes, I know it's actually very easy to do, but this is me remember...}
So here is my ATC for Tilda & Friends this week:

See how it's a *friend* not Tilda ~ we get to use other cutie-tooties now too, all the details are here. And {I know sentences shouldn't start with and, but that one just did, OK?} one very lucky person will have a very gorgeous new Magnolia stamp dropping through their letterbox sometime next week ;)

I should have my t'internet back very soon ~ the seriously yummalicious BT man who came round today has promised it will be fixed by Thursday. Is it wrong of me to hope it won't be & he has to return many, many times?
