Spread a little love mini candy


Hello my gorgeous blog buddies, can you believe how much snow we have at the moment!! More to come too so the best place for us all is inside staying nice and warm. I braved the elements today for a bit of a crafty shop and I decided to buy these sweet little stamps to pass on to one of you lovely people. I love the Forever Friends images but hardly ever use them these days. I bought myself a little FF stamp too whilst I was there (and a few other things too, lol) :o)

I have added a few other little bits and pieces to go with the stamps and all you have to do is pop your name on Mr Linky (if it works .... first time I have used it) and spread the word on your blog. You do not need to follow me or anything like that and I am happy to post world wide so you can all play along. I will draw a winner at 9pm on Sunday 31st January. Just a little thankyou from me to you for being such wonderful friends xxx

Young Love

Hi there, isn't it sunny today ... fab but freezing!! So happy it is the weekend at last. We went out last night with a load from Glen's work to a gorgeous indian restaurant which used to be an old windmill (Here if you want a nosey) and we had such a great time. I haven't laughed so much in ages. Slight fiasco before going out though cos I decided to go all glam and opted for some false nails - however I glued my fingers to the nails and got in a right mess so had to cut the 2 nails I managed to get stuck on to the same length as my little stubbies. Only just managed to get the little b*ggers off, lol .... what am I like! I am going out tonight with some friends that I did my training with tonight for a few drinks so I shan't be attempting the nails again!

Thought I would show you a card my darling son asked me to make for his girlfriend (been going out a year now). Shocked he wanted one of my cards - not usually a cool thing apparently but think his girlfriend likes them so looks like he has no choice, lol.

Have some fun with colours x

Good morning to you all. I hope you are all having a lovely relaxing weekend. I went out last night and still feel a bit tipsy so you must excuse any typos, lol. Well, as promised I am back with another beautiful Sweet Pea stamp that I bought from the lovely Teresa at Crafts & Me. I can feel a major addiction coming on. You know when you just love colouring an image so much that you are sad when you have finished, well that is how these beauties make you feel. Either that or I am a little bit strange (no comments please about that, rofl).

Simon says I am truly scrumptious .... and then a little bit more!

Happy Saturday everyone and looks like a miserable day outside so I am going to stay in this morning and then maybe nip out later with hubby to the Designer Outlet for a look round the shops and reward ourselves with a Starbucks, mmmmmm. I couldn't make my mind up which card to post today (yes, I have a few made up, shock horror) so I opted for this gorgeous stamp by The Greeting Farm. The wonderful Tracy from Dies To Die For sent me her last week .... thankyou so much hun! If you would like your own Madelynn you can buy her here

Now as you know by now this is where I usually give you al ist of the copics Iused to colour my image but can I find my list .... nope. If it turns up I promise to come back and add them here. I am gutted cos I am quite pleased with the shade of her hair but hey ho, that will teach me for having my desk in such a state.

Foxy fairy

Please don't faint .... yes I am back again in the same day. I just had to show you one of my gorgeous new stamps that arrived this morning. From the first second I saw these beautiful stamps I fell in love with them and just had to order some for myself. This little beauty is called 'Love is Gone' and I doubt she will be alone for long - what a foxy fairy! The images are all so 'grown up' if you know what I mean and I think that my purse is going to be a whole lot lighter because I just need more of these fabulous Sweet Pea Stamps.

Hi there, where is this week going! It seems to be flying past. Before I get started with my post can I just say thankyou to all the lovely messages you sent me about my stolen phone - you are all so sweet. I am now back in the land of the text message etc cos I picked up my new phone today and my sim card was activated - how on earth did we manage before I wonder!!

So, onto this weeks challenge on Lili of the Valley . I have some really exciting to news to tell you .... well 2 bits actually but first you need to know our challenge ......... A SKETCH BY DOMI

Yes, I am delighted to tell you that the fabulous Bev has agreed to join us a member of our DT - we are all delighted to have her with us!! So, do you want more news?????? I am chuffed to bits to let you all know that the new range of LOTV stamps will be available to buy on 25th January from the LOTV website. The diecuts are already available to purchase HERE ad they are seriously cute. A word of advice - if you are planning on buying some of the new stamps (and who wouldn't) you better be quick.

Sometimes things are poo!

Good evening folks and what a mixed weekend I have had. Went out for a meal with BIL and his wife and their friends and had a great time. They went home quite early cause poor Becky had a lousy cold and felt rotten. Anyway, hubby and I stayed out for a few drinks and can you believe someone stole my handbag containing my mobile phone from right under my nose. I am absolutely gutted. My bag was found a little later minus the phone - I just can't believe it. It was within 2 minutes of getting our drink - some people! Anyway - you don't want to listen to me moaning on but just had to have a vent - you know what it's like.

I am here to show you my last card as GD for Pink Gem Designs . Don't forget to check out their website because the 15% sale is still going on til the end of the month!
