Sweet and Sassy

Hello Friends
I'm on a roll at the mo I never blog this much! I did say I was going to enter some blog challenges while I was off from work, and today is no exception. The following card is for the Sketch-n-stash challenge. I've used one of my favourite stamps by Elisabeth Bell 'Sweet and Sassy' which I purchased from Sugar Nellie before they stopped selling them. So hear she is!

Less is More week 3

Hello, Well what a miserable day it is here in Southend. I'm still on holiday until Friday so I've been making loads of cards for my card box. I've made a card for the 'Less is More' challenge week 3 which is Spring. I found this really difficult this week. Anyhow I've managed to put this card together. I hope it fits the challenge.

Coffee and Cream

Hello Friends,

Well what a dreary day it is today, me thinks it's a day for making cards and staying at home drinking loads of coffee.

I've decided while I'm on holiday to have a go at a few challenges this week. So I'm entering my latest card into the Passion for Promarkers challenge which is coffee and cream and set by a blogging buddy, the lovely Coops.

So I'm off to check out some more challenges.

Less is More!


What a beautiful morning we have here in Southend, I got up early this morning and went for a brisk walk along the sea front. Time for a large cup of coffee now!

I would like to say a big thank you for all your lovely comments left on my last card, they were so lovely to read.  So on to my card, I thought I would give the 'Less is More' challenge a go, this is so out of my comfort zone, which I'm sure a lot of bloggers have found. I found that I actually enjoyed doing this card. Even though I missed week 1 of the challenge I emailed the girls and Chrissie said I can add a card, but it won't be showcased.

Friendship Card for Kay aka Incy!

That's it no more work for a couple of weeks, I'm on holiday and on Thursday I'm off to Stoke on Trent for a couple of days. Me and the boyfriend are going to a dinner and dance on Friday night at Port Vale FC, what are the chances that Robbie Williams will be there? One lives in hope! Once back I have a couple of weeks of card making woohoo, I'm so behind at the moment.

Back with my First Card Since October!

Hello to all my loyal followers!

Apologies for not blogging since last October, but I decided to take a break from blogging. This was due to starting a new job and I wanted to concentrate on that. I had been unemployed for 18 months so getting in to a routine again was a struggle, but I am back!

It's been lovely to see many of my blogging friends have done so well for themselves, by becoming design team members. Well done to you all!

I would also like to thank all my loyal followers for staying with me. So on to my card, it's using a stamp from LOTV, I so love these stamps.
