A couple for today...

...First up is my ATC for this weeks Tilda & Friends "Punch It!" challenge. How typical that with all the punches I have, I manage to use a grand total of one on this!!!! This was even speedier than ATC's usually are to make cos I used up some leftover bits from the Edward card I made last week.

Next is my card for
Annie's K.I.S.S challenge...

I love that Annie has started this - blogland needs a bit more simplicity. Well, I reckon it does anyways ;)

Another speedy 'un...

...card and post that is!

Some CC Earth Love paper, a Gorjuss Nellie, a coupl'a roses {I still think flowers are weird...} and a pearly pin...and that's pretty much all I have to say 'bout it!

Thanks to a heads up from super-fab Jo - I'm entering this li'l sweetie into the Simon Says "It's a Stitch-Up" Challenge. Fingers crossed for you all that you get your 200 entries!

Crafty hugs,

"Mum," said the li'l Horror. "I been thinkin' I quite fancy a rocket." No problem sweetheart, I'll just go get my purse and keys and we'll pop out and get one...

A bright & cheery, kinda speedy, li'l Edward card...

...not much else to say 'bout it really - apart from the papers are all Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend & the Edward stamp can be found here at Dies to Die For.

If only all my posts were so non-waffley, eh? ;)

Crafty Hugs,

Like my ride?

Another li'l spooky card - this one uses the cutie-tootie witch from the Sugarplums Halloween set, the tiny spider is in there too :)

I was having soooooooo much fun making this {Mr Mojo has returned, although I'm not sure how long for}, that I then made a trick or treat bag too. I had seriously grand plans to go to town with the decoration on the bag, but after trimming the pp to size, I just couldn't bring myself to cover up those gorgeous spiders! Aren't they cute?!

So I left it plain and just added a vampy li'l tag - this fella can be found in the Spooky, Spooky, Spooky set {it's still on sale!!!!!}. Make sure to check out the offers over at Dies to Die For - there are still some fabby ones to be had :)

I used the new Halloween Card Kit from CleoCrafts to make both of these - it's a bargain-packed kit, you can see the details for it here. I received my DT pack for next months Cardmaking kit today too - it's super scrummy - email Louise if you'd like details on subscribing to their card kits :)
If you'd prefer to just buy a few sheets of this fabby MME paper, Dies to Die For have them here.

Thanks everyone for all the comments re. my lost mojo - you did make me giggle!

Don't forget to check out Tilda & Friends and CCT this week - useless me didn't play along this week, but that doesn't mean you can't... ;)

MISSING: One Mojo...

...did ya see it anywhere? I have my suspicions that it went sneaking out the back door last Friday while I was distracted by Johnny Depps' face {easily done}...I kinda expected it to sneak back in when it got hungry, but it's either found itself a new home or didn't get back here in time and starved to death already...

I kinda miss it...if you do see it could you please supply some nourishment {it thrives on Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon and anything Pixie} and then point it in the right direction?

A great big thank you... Emma & Riet for these gorgeous cards - aren't they both just stunning?

A million thank you's to you both, I really, truly treasure them :)

A day of decadence... what I have planned - there's a cup of Fortnums tea, maybe a chocolate or two and the fantastically trashy new Dan Brown** waiting for me, so only a quickie post today!

Here's the gorgeous li'l Pumpkin Emma all autumned up for this weeks SpoonFull of Sugar challenge - Thanks girls for giving me the perfect excuse to ink her up and break into some of the new Pink Paislee Amber Road pp I've been stroking for the past week! This card was a real feat of masking patience for me and I'm still amazed that I stuck with all the cutting that goes along with masking! Along with Emma I've also used an old magnolia fence and some bits from the Sugarplum Halloween set.

Have a good Friday peeps!

**I must point out, to those of you who don't know, I will read anything. For all my dumb blond persona, I can actually quote Shakespeare, Chaucer, Shelley, Austen et al until you beg me to shush. I adore books - the cracking open of a new one, the smell of the pages, the way all those tiny letters have the ability to take the reader away from reality - and love nothing more than seeing people sat in a park, on a train, anywhere, utterly engrossed in a book. Mr. Brown may not be up there with the greats, but his fantastic brand of shock-trash has resulted in people missing their bus stop because they're lost in his words. That's genius.

...I've gotta warn you peeps, there may be a fair bit of Halloweeniness coming up in the not too distant future...{and yeah, it's entirely probable it'll be CC Designs Halloweeniness!}.

There's a fab selection over at Dies to Die For {todays offer is 10% off everything - whoo-hoo!}, for my CCT card this week I've used a mix of old & new releases. The not-at-all-scary Mummy Trevor is a new release, which I've used with the older {on sale & discounted!} Spooky Scenery set. The Happy Halloween greeting is from this Sugarplum Halloween set.

All the scrummy MME BOO! to You! paper is here :)

Tomorrow I have a card that drove me insane, to show you - looking at it now I'm not even sure it was worth all the tears!

A hedgehog has taken up residence under our shed. Upon hearing this the li'l Horror declared "That's so cool, 'cos I was thinking 'bout getting one anyway". Oh really? Why didn't you say? I would've picked one up from the hedgehog shop for you...

...another super-speedy where-does-the-time-just-vanish-to? post from me - I have a few bits to show this week & thought I'd start with this li'l notebook I altered for the big Horror. I'm hoping that having a funky little book to write in will stop him moaning so much about practising his spellings...I can always hope ;)

I must tell you about the offer Tracy has going on over at Dies to Die For - to celebrate her upcoming birthday, there's a special offer every day this week. Each day is different and finishes at 9pm - hop on over, cos there are some fabby bargains to be had!

I'll be catching up with everyone as soon as I possibly can - if you're waiting on an email from me, please accept my apologies, I'll get back to you really, really soon!

...I'm suffering from a complete lack of time at the mo peeps, I could do with an extra 24 hours in a day, never mind one or two...I'm still having trouble with blogger, so all my apologies for not visiting - I am trying!...I have some mega-fabby, super-duper exciting news to share, but it's gonna have to wait awhile I'm afraid...I promise I'll tell you as soon as I can!

In the meantime here's my CCT card for this week:

Yeah, I know, but I couldn't help myself - it's a Pixie! It's new Cosmo Cricket! C'mon, what d'ya expect from me?! And anyways, Tracy's just had restocks, so I actually, really had to make something Pixie...

We'd love to see you come play along with us :)

...Blogger's not playing fair with me...we have family staying so I can't sit down & try to unearth the problem...I'll leave you with my CCT/Tilda & Friends "Back to School" creations for this week, until I get the chance to sort it :)

Sorry for the delay peeps - we've been having some massive storms which resulted in no Digi TV, no phone & {worstest of all} no broadband...eeeeeeek!

I did another li'l Randomn org draw which decided the li'l bundle of goodies were destined for the super-fabby
Emma - **Llongyfarchiadau cariad!

Let me know your addy hun - & I'll get them on their way to you :)

Thanks to all who played along - there'll be another one soonest :)
