A haul from the Make-it show!

So here is the little haul I came back with today, managed to spend over £60 believe it or not on this little bit of stash! I got some yummy K&Co 6x6 pads for card making, some craftwork cards scalloped edge cards, burgandy ribbons in preparation for my baby bro's wedding invites, lots of stick it roller refills.

Some more stickles in stardust, cinnamon, gold, cany floss and baby blue for making lots of sparkly flowers and some punches!

Ok so these are some of my new punches, Im in love with these woodware punches, especially when I cant be bothered with my cuttlebug, there are so easy to use and just look at the results from them!

Fab arent they, I cannot decided which one I love the most but have this feeling that they are going to look gorg!

Thank you soooooo much Karen it worked, I dont feel like a total internet freek now, I can link!!!!!


Linky things!

Well just to prove how rubbish I am I have had to ask for a helping hand in sorting out how to link so here goes, Karen on UKS has given me step by steps to link to another page so here goes, pray it works for me!

So here is a link to Karens blog

Lets hope it has worked!

A blog award!

This lovely award was given to me from one of my Docrafting buddies Alma, thank you Alma. As Im no good at doing those linky things here is her blog address check out her work!

So the conditions of this award are:that I need to pass this on to 3 more blogs, so here are my 3

1. Karen - - and trust me she really is a supermum!
2. Helen - - one of my fellow UKS teamies
3. Tracy - - both she and bubba can
enjoy this one!

I also have to give three things that I would never do!

1. I would never let Charley loose with the pink paint again!
2. I would never stop buying my crafting stuff, there will always be space for something somewhere!
3. I would never intentionally hurt someone, physically or emotionally.

By the way if anyone wants to give me a crash course in how to put proper links in please feel free to leave me a message about how to!!!!!lol!

Anyway, thank you again Alma!

I will be back later with some crafty makes that I have busy with!

cake anyone.....?

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, forgive me whilst I tuck in to some yummy treats I made for the family yesterday. My victoria sponge packed with strawberry jam and buttercream, mmmmmmmmm.
And here is the yummiest, gooeist, most delicious chocolate brownie, packed with dark, white and milk chocolate and walnuts (oh and I have another of these without nuts for those of you who are allergy sufferers!)
so if your passing pop in for a cuppa and a piece of cake, your more than welcome!

Cricut serenade

Ok so this was my naughtyness the other day, I saw this over on Karens blog and fell in love, well who wouldnt, cutesy little birdie cages, flutterby's and pretty things...

so I had to have it, I scoured the net looking for it, and believe me it took hous, no one had it in stock, then I found it cute and crafty had it £44.99, so it whipped itself into my cart and paypal did its thing! So off I went surfing some more looking for the sweet treats cart - yes am into anything sweet at the mo. When alas I went to cutting edge crafts to find this little baby £10.00 cheaper, so I rang cute and crafty - thank you so much nice man - and cancelled my order and purchased from cutting egde, which left me with a handy £10 extra to spend on other bits!!!!!

So here it is in all its glory, had to hide it from hubby though, pain in the neck that they sent it recorded, couldnt really hide that, I am however a little miffed with QVC Im still waiting for my Martha Stewart punches, if they arrive sometime in the next hour I will be laughing, if not then Im in trouble as hubby will be home! please, please please let them arrive while he is out!

Gramps is still in hopsital so I made him a card to send to nan for valentines day, hope you like it.
We have found out that the hospital wants to release him but that he will have to go into some form of care home, not a problem you would think, but of course there is my nan too, she really needs more care than she gets, so we are ready to fight, we want them to go into the same home, we arent convinced though that they both need the same type of care, let battle commence - us against HCC!!!!!

Thanks for reading!

Are you ready for valentines day????

I am finally, I was blog hopping earlier and saw a similar card, but Im sorry I can't remember the blog I was on!!! Anyway I love using buttons so thought that this was perfect, I used some Jillibeans cold raspberry paper - fresh mint as the background as Im loving kraft papers at the moment and some glittery black thickers for the' be mine'. Buttons are from my stash!

I hope that he likes it, we have decided that we arent buying any pressies etc as we need to conserve our cash incase he doesnt find a job soon, however I decided to treat myself and am now awaiting my martha stewart punch set that was this weeks tsv and a rather scrummy new cricut cart, oh and some new dies for my cuttlebug, but shhhhhhhhhh dont tell him that!

A fantastic week...

well in the life of a trainee teacher anyhow, have had the most amazing lessons and the kids have been fantastic this week! Which makes a change as after last week I was beginning to think that I should change career completely!

Last week wasnt a good week anyway, Steve was made redundant and that in itself has been a shock! Who know what he will do until he finds something, we shall see!

Anyhow here is a little card I made for a colleague at work who turns 50 on monday, she has seen it so its ok to post it on here! Happy Birthday Helen!
