This is where it all happens.....

Ok, so im not so lucky as many of you, that have your own craft rooms, i have a corner of my back room, but its MY corner and MY haven!

Good Morning Bloggypeeps, hope you are all well! It is a horrid day here, sooo rainy! Went out on a little shopping trip with my mum yesterday, to a little drapery shop not far from where I live, had never been there before but it was quite a find, brought some ribbon and loads of buttons. Am using some of the buttons on the cards i'm uploading today.....

heigh-ho, heigh ho......

its back to work i go!! Kids are back to school tomorrow, and i am back to work, shame, i've had such a lovely week off! Not sure what is worse - the early mornings or the being able to play with my new blog or do crafting whenever i fancy.

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. xx

This is my card for this weeks Penny Black challenge, over on the Docrafts site, which is being hosted by the lovely Julie, and the challenge is to make a card using a PB stamp, bright colours (well mine are bright-ish!), and spotty paper. These lush papers are a download from Zoe Pearn (thanks for the info, Pickle), also used MS border punch, the ribbon, flower and button from stash and the "Friend" wording is cut from a section of a c'bug embossing folder.

Good Afternoon Bloggypeeps!

Hope you are all having an ok Thursday, it is a cold, wet and miserable day here. Took the kids to town this morning (undies shopping, although a couple of packs of white card did fall into my basket in Tesco, hehehe) We had planned to take the dog for a good long run in the woods today, but the lousy weather knocked that one on the head, so stayed in the warm and dry to play with my new blog! Dont know what im going to do when i go back to work next week.....

Tilda Stitched Up challenge card

I am hosting this weeks Tilda challenge, over on the Docraft site, and the idea is to make a Tilda card, featuring some form of stitching. My stitching was created on the page plus program, by drawing a box, and then changing it from a solid line to look like a running stitch.
