I just can't believe it!

I have just been onto and this card has won the late January competition.

Kate said:- very simple and elegant, and suits the picture perfectly - anyone would be delighted to receive it on a special anniversary.

I am so chuffed to bits - its not often that I enter competitions, so it was a bolt from the blue. The other entries were amazing and it must have been a hard decision for kate to choose a winner.


Just had a little play about this morning with these two cards. I know they arent the best in the world. But as I say, I was having a little play.

The ADORE bit and flourish were printed off on my computer - and the paper is from Papermania???

This one I used the same coloured card to make up all the bits, but somehow the blue is darker than the actual card base (its the same card as I cut up another one to do the bits). Scratching my head over this one!!!

Used my quickutz dies and sizzix, for the bits.

I better get going as I have the table (my crafty space) to clear up and get started on dinner. Catch you all later x


It has been a looooooong weekend here.

My youngest has not been right since she came home from school on Friday. She has been running a high temp all weekend and she has had one of those really tickly coughs that nothing will shift. The little soul was so determined to go school this morning that I let her go. I did let her teacher know and to ring me if she started again with the temperature.
