Another SWALK sneak peek

Here is another card using the brand new SWALK images from Crafter's Companion. They are available to buy RIGHT NOW and they are also Pick of the Week on Create and Craft so get switched onto sky channel 671 to view lots of the samples and demos.

I just adore all the sentiments that come with the images but the image could be used for lots of occassions. Not sure if you can see her blingy ring on this pic but I made sure she had a nice sized rock onher finger lol.
Have a great weekend xxx

Music Saves My Soul Saturday #6

Morning, I am so happy it is the weekend. Tonight a big group of us are going out to celebrate my friend's birthday. I can't wait because it is fancy dress!!!!!!!! Lots of pics will be up on my facebook tomorrow lol.

I can't believe it is week 6 already on Music Saves my Soul! I really wanted to share a Queen song with you but had no idea which one to choose. I heard this last night and that helped me make my mind up ..... what a song! I am so sad I never got the chance to see them live, it would have been amazing. How sad to think that if Freddie had been alive now and diagnosed with his illness he would probably have been alive for many years to come .... medicine has come such a long way since the early days of HIV and AIDs.

To play along please post the picture of 'Music Saves My Soul' to your sidebar and link it to my blog to help spread the word. If you could then share your video on your blog and link it to the blue frog below that would be fabulous. I will draw this months winner on the first Saturday of next month ... good luck!!!!!
I hope you enjoy my song this week .... have a wonderful weekend xxx

Just Magnolia - Think Pink

Hi all, well it is almost the weekend at last and boy am I shattered! Looking forward to seeing my good friend Heidi this evening after her graduation - Congrats sweetie :o)

This week on Just Magnolia is a very special theme ... THINK PINK!!!!
Many of you will already know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We all really wanted to help raise awareness especially because one of our teamies was diagnosed with breast cancer. Jacque has been so strong with her fight to beat this disease with such dignity (and humour). She is a real inspiration to me and I am amazed at the courage she as shown this year.We all love you sweetie!

I am really behind with my crafting this week after being poorly but I was not going to miss this challenge - no way!!! So I have managed to get the front of my card complete. I will finish off the rest of my easel over the weekend and post the finished card then.

We are sponsored again by the wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts - oh boy I just adore their flowers and embellies ..... yum yum I could just sit and drool at the screen all day. Make sure you check out the prize - I am so jealous of who ever wins it!


Pixie Dust - Sketch & Think Pink

Off to work for me now ...... have a great day and please please try to join in this week:o)

Winter Fun

You can interpret this how you like .... I have chosen christmas plays .... I used to love watching these when Ryan was a little boy ... happy memories. These nativity stamps are so adorable .... I love them all. Not sure I would have approved of someone dangling Ryan from a rope in the name of christmas but they are just so cute I LOVE THEM!!!

I have gone with more of last years papers - loving the gorgeous blue shades in this Dovecraft pack - saw them again at The Range recently so looks like they are still as popular.

Don't you love the look on the little lamb's face, hahahaha poor thing looks rather worried :o)
The scrumptious ribbon is from Dunelm Mills and a real bargain .... gonna go grab me some more I think!

Just realised I haven't added my stickles - duh .... will fix that later today when I get chance - what a dimwit I am!

There is a huge selection to choose from online at Simon Says Stamp Superstore.

The papers are so pretty and I felt the colours had quite a vintage feel to them. They are from the Cosmo Cricket 'Mini Love' deck .... love, love, love these papers.

Excuse my rubbish colouring this week, I am afraid my nose and eyes were streaming so much it is a wonder I managed to get it done at all ...... promise to do better tomorrow, lol.


Penny Black Saturday - A Sketch

Just Magnolia - a sketch

Hey there, how are you all doing?? It's Friday woop woop!!! I have a busy weekend coming up though with DT work so I am going to be locking myself away and being a busy, busy girl. I will still manage a night out tomorrow with my darling Glen .... love you hun xxxx

So onto this weeks challenge on Just Magnolia - we have a great sketch by our lovely teamie Dawny.

Thought I would let Edwin come out to play for a change .... another of last years stamps that has never seen ink ... tut tut 

Soz for the poor pictures today, struggled for some reason last night, but you get the general idea. Lots of traditional colours today - I don't think Edwin would have been too happy in pinks and lilacs lol.

And that's your lot ..... not fussy at all for a change from me and a really fabby sketch to use. Hope you all get chance to join is this week. xxx
