Beary has a cold and been sleeping in the spare room with me most of the week and now I have the stinking cold too! So am feeling sorry for myself.
It was my GTP interview on wednesday which went well (according to my head) I dont think itwent that well but heyho! She is convinced that i have a place and I can only hope and keep my fingers crossed until I get the official response from the uni themselves, which could be any time in the next three weeks, so fingers crossed everyone!
Im going to make a card later for my mum to take down to my nanna as whenever she is released from hospital they will be sending her to a rehab centre for a few weeks as she cant walk at the moment.
Life just seems to be whizzing by me at the moment, but I seem to be watching it in slow motion, Im lookig forward to the long weekend, believe me after this week I need it!
Ohhhhhhh nearly forgot, at school we have baby chicks, here is the website address

So here is the card that I made for mum and dad for the annversary, once again its a CCSR card. The card was lifted from the CCSR blog and is one of Tab's cards from Sketch Challenge #3 which I thought would be perfect, only problem is I dont seem to have a greetings stamp for 'happy anniversary' so I used an autumn leaves love stamp instead, all the papers are CCSR barring, copics used to grey the edges of the butterflies, ribbon from stash, pm black gems and core'dinations black cardstock.
I even decorated the insides! This is something I never do for cards, bu today I thought I would, Im quite pleased with it actually, now just need to get my nan and grandads card for tomorrow sorted and Im away!!!!
Anyhows, it has been a bit of a strange week with me babysitting (quite literally) my grandparents one evening so my folks could go out so crafting has taken a back seat but Ive woken up this morning almost swearing because I havent made my parents an anniversary card and its their anniversary today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ooooooooooooooppppppppppppsssssssss! So am off to do that now, will post it later and also that wedding journak jar too as Im giving that to Emma today when she comes over!

Hey steve hasnt even noticed the large set of green drawers on my craft desk that hold the 'Summer Suprise' DCWV summer kit I bought last week on QVC, he is sooooo stupid sometimes! I just loved the papers and thought that they would be fabby for my holiday album when we get back from Florida, along with all the bits Ill buy there as well!!!! Would take a pic but my desk is in creative chaos where I was busy trying out my Clare Curd papers and stamps tonight, will show the fruits of my labour tomorrow, one card all evening and Im chuffed, easily pleased arent i?????????lol!
So tomorrow we ARE feeding ducks as I have enough stale bread to feed about 6 ponds worth and then off out for a curry in the evening, not sure what Charlotte is going to make of it she hasnt been to the curryhouse since she was about 6 months and ate anything and everything in sight! me thinks that may be different this time though!!!!!!!!!!!
Sunday we will be swimming again, maybe I will start shedding those pounds, who knows, we went this evening then I went home a cooked a humungous macaroni cheese, - well planned that was wasnt it!!!! Lol!

Last night Em's came over, more wedding stuff and I made her guest book to her specifications, that bind it all comes in handy sometimes, will post a pic later as I havent got my camera ready yet! So we have now done the table names, guest book and Ive given her the directions on making her table plan, its all coming together now!! Must get some black card today to make her journal for her journalling har I have started, any ideas for wedding/love based questions to go in the jar would be gratefully recieved!!!!!
Fancy a little visit to the craft shop for some of Clare Curds stamps so thats where I will be pootling off to soon, I also want her yummy paper pack for card making but might have to give that a miss at £14.99 Id never use it all! Have ordered some more promarkers too, I soooooo need them!!!

This is the card I made for gramps for his birthday last month I used flock for the first time on this card and love the texture, the papers are from a cheap shop I visited a while back and the cardstock is core'dinations. The little froggy image is a pink petticoat, hoppy wishes for him.
This is the tag book that I made for Mother in Law for one of Gina's xmas challenges over on docrafts. Its made from K&Co poppy papers and Papermania collossall stack. Ribbons and flowers from stash and used my trusty cropodile!
Made a 70 card for a commission last night so just need to put the word MUM on it and its done, will post pics of it later, Im quite pleased with it. My style has changed quite a lot over the last 6 months and Im enjoying card making much more than I used to. If I had more time Id re-open my online shop, but there is a dream isnt there! Especially seeing as Im going for an interview for a new training post in a couple of weeks time! I have my fingers crossed that I get it too!
As for today, Ive nothing planned, as little as possible I hope, might get on with chucking out again, Ive made a rule thai have to chuck out 3 items from each room each day from the kitchen, lounge, charleys room, the study and the spare room! I seriously need to declutter!

So Im off to shine my sink! How lovely to want to do h****w**k!
No crafting for me again today as we went swimming today, my all time hate and for the second time this weekend too! Oh I forogt to say the kids pool is only 0.9m deep so I dont have to worry about getting out of my depth and its very warm in there too! You never know I may even start to enjoy it soon.
Right shine my sink and then Im going to make myself a few cards with all those images that I have promarkered this weekend I deserve it!!!

So that has meant no crafting, I did some on thursday night as a pressie for a pre school teacher then forgot to photograph it so I cant even show you that! My Scrappydo's order arrived on thursday and I havent even had time to play with that, its a shame that they are now closed, but I was pleased with my bargains, some scenic route papers and chipboard (sonama) which will be perfect for my spain album, that I really should get on with and some fabby manhatten papers to that are gorgeous and i dont want to cut at the minute.
Im going to make steve a photocube for easter for his desk at work, I will finally get around to using some the cosmo cricket kit that I am still paying for!!!!! Ive made my easter cards so just need to think what i can get charley to make for everyone as a pressie.
I was well made up this week at work, all term long I have been acting as a teacher rather than a nursery nurse, well they have finally agreed to pay me as an unqualified teacher for the rest of this term, I have an interview for my GTP at the end of the month and hopefully will get on the course then I can have my own class in a year and a bits time, after lots of hard work!!!!!! Still it should be fun.
This is the book that I will be reviewing in my interview its so cool, check it out on amazon!
