Toodle pip, cheerio and i'll see you all soonxx

We are finally on the move on Saturday, which is a massive relief, just cant wait to get in and get settled now. My internet should be back on by Wednesday, so i'll catch up with you all later. Thank you all so, so much for all the good wishes xx

We're feeling Funny at Aud Sentiments!

Some of you may know that I do have a bit of a mad sense of humour, so the new Aud Sentiments challenge, is right up my street - MAKE A FUNNY CARD!!!
This is my DT card, and I have used the wonderful GUS from Bugaboo, who are also sponsoring this challenge. This is also my birthday card for my hubby, who is a few years older than I am, and I do give him a bit of stick about his age!!!
As you will all know, its been a stressful time for me with the move and everything - so come on, join in and make me laugh! CLICK HERE

Good Morning blog friends xx

Woke up this morning feeling all warm and cosy, and straight away thought "Yay, its not as cold as it has been for the last few days", then I got into my kitchen and realised the heating had been left on overnight - ooops!

No card from me today, and in fact for a wee while now. Although, we still dont have a definate moving date, it should be fairly soon now, so this afternoon I will be packing up my stash and despatching it at my parents house (for safe keeping!!), spare a thought for me during this sad time.

Just wanted to remind you all also, that there is still a week to go to join in with our fab recipe challenge at THE CUTIE PIE CHALLENGE BLOG. The "ingredients" would lend themselves nicely to a Christmas card too, so if that was what you had on your agenda for the day, then its gotta be worth a look.

Have a great weekend all, keep warm xx

A recipe for a Cutie Pie!!!!

Couldn't resist that for a title, but it is what it is.........its Recipe time for the next Cutie Pie challenge.
The ingredients are:
Lilac/Silver Tones
Fairy Image (digi or stamp)
3 buttons or flowers

For my DT card, i've used another fabby image from Di's digi downloads, and when I found out that one of my other teamies had used glitter on her fairy's tights, I couldn't resist doing the same thing!

Once again we have some amazing sponsors:
Its been wonderful to see so many of you joining in, we would love to have your company this time, so CLICK HERE to join in.

I would also like to enter my card into these challenges:
The Squirrel and the Fox one for the girls

Still no news on the moving day yet, but will keep you posted on that one - have a lovely day xx

Life is full of challenges!

It certainly is for me at the moment anyway! For those of you that didn't know, we are currently in the process of packing up everything to move house, hopefully at the end of the month, although we are still waiting for a definate date....grrrrrr! I am slowing getting the hump with cardboard boxes everywhere at home.
Cameron's 11+ results came through last weekend, and sadly he was 12 points short of the pass mark, we have been encouraged by his school to appeal, so this has been a whole bunch more of forms to fill in! And somewhere in the middle of all this madness, we are really busy at work!
Usually when life gets stressful, I make a hasty retreat to my beloved craft desk, but I cant even do that at the moment - cos there are blummin' cardboard boxes on it!!!
Ho hum and rant over, I do have one lovely challenge related thing to share with you all - and that is my card for this weeks AUD SENTIMENTS CHALLENGE.
This time its a card/project with a winter theme, and the challenge is sponsored by the wonderful and super cute, Lili of the Valley.
As you can see, it is an adorable LOTV image that I have used on my DT card.

Hope to get back to normal blogging as soon as possible
hugs to you all
