A Gorjuss Stranger

Hi there, thought I would share a card a made a couple of days ago ..... I have been selling some of my old stash on ebay and I came across this little gem ....I had to stamp her up and play, it has just been too long. I had forgotten how pretty the Gorjuss Girls from Sugar Nellie (Funky Kits) are .... she is just adorable!

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley - their sentiments always fit so many occassions - I love this one. The wonderful roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts ... where else ... need to get me some new flowers soon :o)

I haven't used purple and aqua for so long - I really like this combo ... the papers are some of my all time faves!

A little peek at the matching inside ... I am getting good in my old age, lol.

This card will be on my Ebay in a little while

Happy Thursday everyone, ooh it is almost the weekend :o)
I am ever so happy today because at my weigh in last night I managed to lose another 2 lbs so I have now got a total of 1 stone off .... wow, I am amazed!!!! Needless to say I have had a big cheesy grin on my face ever since!

Another reason to smile is the brand new challenge on Lili of the Valley this week ..... another great theme ....


I am just loving pink and brown .... such a pretty combination.

I have used the very adorable 'Dandelion Clock' which you can buy HERE .... these fairies are all so sweet, I cannot chose a favourite at all ..... good job I don't have to! Pop over to Lili of the Valley's online store to look at the gorgeous selection (such a steal too .... they really are so very cheap ..... that means you can treat yourself to another one ... or two, lol)

Lili of the Valley - Sketch by lovely Dawny P

 Good morning my lovelies ..... I just love Thursdays!!!! Firstly because I can share my weight loss for the week with you all ... managed 1.5lbs this week so now at 12lbs off in 5 weeks - I am really happy and enjoying trying lots of new recipes.

The other reason, and main one of course is that it is my favourite challenge of the week ..... yep, another time to play with us all at Lili of the Valley. Oh my, these images just make me want to make cards all night long! We have an amazing sketch by our gorgeous Dawny P and it is one of my faves ever!!! To be honest, I almost didn't add any flowers at ll, it really does not need any embellies - you will see for yourself if you play along.

I swear I am in love with this .... is she just not too cute for words!!!! I am sure many of you have already bought 'Birthday Fairy' from LOTV's online store .... if you haven't then you can buy her HERE. Don't forget aout the fab sentiments too from LOTV .... all of them are just so lovely. I have used some scrummy new papers I picked up this week at The Papermill Shop - I had no idea it was closing all their stores in the next few weeks- shock horror!

A little close up of the gorgeous blooms from Wild Orchid Crafts.

.... and a little closer look at the star of the card ...... too sweet!

I have just got an ebay account so that means you can now bid for this card HERE

S.W.A.L.K. sneak peek

Hiya, ooh I am a bit later than planned. Been an eventful evening here tonight. First of all Ryan took his first drive without any of us so I felt as sick as a dog watching him drive off, what a mum I am, lol. Will feel better when he gets home soon. Then hubby and I popped out only to discover smoke billowing out the back of the localpetrol station. They hadn't even phoned the fire brigade so we had to tell them to get out and dial 999 - I am not kidding!!!!

So here is my next card from the new S.W.A.L.K. release from Crafter's Companion. Remember to tune into Create & Craft on Saturday (more news about that on Friday!!!!)

Music Saves My Soul

Morning on what is still a blustery day - where has all this windy weather come from??? Think it will be gone soon though because it doesn't seem as strong. I forgot to tell you all that my son passed his driving test on Monday - this will mean no more band runs for me but instead I can stay home and worry instead!

So as we all know it is Saturday so time to get searching for some music to share with each other, My song this week is by a band who strangely I didn't like as a teen however now I just adore their music. They are amazing musicians and Mark Knopfler is such a gifted guitarist - hope you enjoy my choice, sit back, close your eyes and feel the goosebumps it gives you

A little Romance with LOTV

Morning ..... how is your week so far??? I am not liking these cloudy days ... give me the frosty, sunny days any time instead!! I was so relieved last night when I went to Slimming World, I was very naughty after my night out on Saturday and scoffed a pizza, half a kebab and some profiteroles .... eek. Anyway, somehow I managed ot still get a loss so I am thrilled - only 1/2 lb but total is now 10 1/2 lbs in 4 weeks - woop woop.

We have a popular theme this week on Lili of the Valley..... Romance

I have used Together Forever which is available from the online shop - a popular image with the DT this week, lol. We are sponsored by the fabulous Wild Orchid Crafts - ooh I wish I could enter!
