Animal Magic... the theme this week for CCT & the perfect excuse for me to ink up Mark & Milo ~ aren't they just the cutest-patootiest?!

You can check out the challenge & DT loveliness here ~ there's a fab stamp to be won this week too :)

Happy Birthday... Tilda & Friends!!!! I really, truly can't believe the blog is a year old today, where has the past year gone???

Anyways, we want you all to cxelebrate along with us & the more of you that do the more pressies there are to share ~ so head on over here & party with us!


Why do we spend sooooo much on toys when a giant box of washing powder is all that's needed for several hours play? Yes, it made a terrible mess & I could've screamed when the li'l monster trod it all through the house & up the stairs, but hey, the carpet smells Persil-tastic... ;)

Another one of those weeks...

...but I did manage to whip these two up...

More scruumy October Afternoon & an oh-so-adorable Mary Hall Nellie ~ lubs 'em!

And this is probably the simplest card I've made in a long time, but I kinda like it!

Just a piece of MME pp, a li'l embellie & the rather gorge Scattering Love stamp :)

Party Parade...

It's been a week of illness & injury here, but aside from my still blistered lip {don't even ask!!!} all seems OK again :)

I had the most gorgeous little parcel full of Nellies arrive last week & surprised myself by falling utterly in love with the Mary Hall stamps ~ they're sooooo cute! I just had to ink this one up & thought I'd have a go at the challenge over at the SugarBowl ~ my one piece of {double-sided!} pp is from the October Afternoon NightLight range, I'm lovin' this at the mo, it's such happy, smiley paper!

Inside's pretty simple ~ I stamped out just the littlest of the cuties :)

Happy Monday peeps!

It's snowing again :)
I know I moan constantly about being cold, but I do love a bit of snow!

CCT are rockin' this week with "Metallica" as the theme ~ not as scary as it sounds, we just want to see something metal somewhere!

This is one of those cards I'm just not sure about, somethings not right about it! Lots of fabbiness from the rest of the DT though & we have the Piggish Pink One joining us this week ~ check out their yumminess here :)

Right, I'm off to do a snow dance...

Anyone else absolutely flippin' freezin'? Luckily we're "Warmin' it up" over on Tilda & Friends this week ~ anything goes as long as it makes you feel all cozy :)

I've been having a good ole rummage through my stamps earlier ~ I can't believe how many I have that just don't get a chance to see ink anymore :( It actually makes me really sad, so you may see a few popping up on here for sale very soon! Mostly older Magnolia's, I just don't have the time to use them at the mo.

Anyways, happy crafting all & stay warm!

Cottage pie for tea tonight ~ "I like the pie, but the cottage is a bit nasty" piped up the little Horror. Okaaaaaay...

This week I have mostly been...

...avoiding my craft room as much as possible because it's sooooo flippin' cold in there! The radiator in there has never worked properly & I think it's given up completely now. I went in this morning & the windows were frozen up on the inside...

I've been rather slack at blogging too {nothin' unusual there} & thought I'd better post my latest CCT card. The theme this week is Valentines & being me I avoided any hints of tradish valentiney colours & used some scrummy Sassafras pp's.

I did a bit of inside decorating on this one too...

Right I'm off to brave the craft room ~ must find my woolly hat first though...

I've had lots of lovely awards & tags passed on to me recently ~ a big, big thank you for them, I'll try & get them all loaded later!
