I'm wondering if you would help me solve a bit of a mystery? I brought myself a beautiful table runner in the sales with gorgeous burgundy tassels on the end. I came down the next morning and the tassel was missing.......................... Who do you think may have done it? Olive seems to think if she doesn't look at it then it couldn't possibly have been her! LOL Naughty pusskin.....I have snipped the other one off now so at least they match!

Just a quicky from me today as I have had my first venture out and about today and I am exhausted!!!!! I just wanted to show you a card that I made for little Oliver who was 1 on Christmas day. I have used the "Party this way" SU stamp set and teamed it with "Celebration" designer papers. I am wishing I had used some nice real red ribbon along the bottom instead of the card strip but it's too late now! I am off for a lay down now. I'll be back soon......honest!

Oh my goodness, where is the time going......I can't believe it is the 21st Jan already!!!! You will be pleased to know that this Thank you card was sent out a couple of weeks ago, I'm not that behind! I have used the "Just Believe" stamp set and teamed it with some "Crumb cake" & "Certainly Celery" card and some "Elegant Soiree" designer papers. I have embellished it with the SU adhesive pearls, that I have fallen head over in love with. (If you stand still long enough I will embellish you with one!) I hope that you all have a lovely Friday and an even lovelier weekend! See you soon xxx

Morning bloggers, now don't fall over with shock, this is a card that doesn't use an SU or PB stamp!!!!! This stamp was a gift from a very special friend and I had big plans for it over Christmas........you guessed it.....this is the only card I made with it LOL.I have the best Mum & Dad in the world (yes that is a fact, although I may be biased......lol) and always like to make them a special card. I wish the glitter function worked on my camera as this really sparkled and the picture doesn't seem to show you that all the baubles were raised as well. I hope that you liked the little blast back to Christmas, you will be pleased to know that I am all done and dusted with the Christmas show and tell. I will be back with a "Thank You" card tomorrow. Take care! XXX

Good morning, good morning, how the devil are you?, good morning, good morning to you! (My mum used to sing that to be every morning when I lived at home) Here is the card I made for Nat for Christmas using SU "All in the Family" stamp set: I have remembered all the family and am really pleased at how it has come out. I made four of these cards in total and they took me a whole day so as much as I love the effect I don't think I will do them for Christmas again! Nearly up to date with the show and tells, I will pop back tomorrow with Mummy & Daddy Wonkas cards. XXX

Morning bloggers, as promised here is the card that I made for Mr Wonka. Using the now retired SU stamp set "Loads of Love" I was gutted when this retired as it is one of my faves!I have used "Jolly Holiday" papers again teamed with some satin ribbon and a sprinkling of "Dazzlin Diamonds" glitter. I have just been signed off work for another couple of weeks and hope to be up to some crafty projects soon. Only a few more Christmas projects to show you, I will be back tomorrow with by a card I made for my SU partner in crime! See you then xxx

Morning bloggers, thank you all so much for your lovely comments, they really do mean a lot to me. I often wonder if I am talking to myself in blogland so it is so lovely to know that people do actually read my blog and that I was missed. Before I was missing in action I was going to show and tell my Christmas Penny Black class cards but I sent the cards out for Christmas without taking a picture.....DOH so I will show you the PB cards that I made for the ladies that came along, this is Maggies card: I have used the "Jolly Holiday" papers from SU and teamed it with the PB bauble cat stamp and a Paula Pascual Christmas greeting stamp. I run the classes from home (about 5 mins from Gatwick in Crawley) and up until this year I have had them once a month on a Thursday evening. As from Jan I will now be repeating the class on the Friday morning for my lovely ladies who don't have work commitments. All the Thu evening classes are now fully booked but I do have availability on the morning classes if you would like to come along. Here are the details of the next 3 classes: Fri 28th January - Miss Mimi Class - Using the new Miss Mimi stamps to make cards suitable for Valentine, Easter or Birthday Fri 25th February - Men's cards - Using new PB stamps to create FAB cards for men or boys. Fri 25th March - Very Mice - All occasion cards using PB mouse stamps. All Friday am start at 10.30 am and we finish when we finish................dependent on the amount of time taken up with laughing and tom foolery!!!! LOL (Allow two to two and a half hours) Classes are £10 per person and include refreshments and all materials. Please bring your basic tool kit, adhesives and trimmer with you also. So if you would like to come along then get in touch! We are a friendly bunch and won't bite (unless you have chocolate and aren't sharing! ) lol I'll be back soon with Mr Wonkas Christmas card. Thanks again for all your lovely comments. XXX

Hiya, where do I start, Happy Christmas & Happy new year! I can't believe that it has been nearly 3 weeks since I have blogged and by golly they have been a busy few weeks! I had a lovely Christmas with Mr Wonka and family and was thoroughly spoilt, I am the proud owner of a new I Phone and it has taken over my life! LOL Christmas was rather cram packed as I had to see everyone as I had to go into hospital for an operation on New Years Eve.
The operation was the ninth (yes ninth!!!) for an existing condition and went as well as can be expected, although it took five hours in recovery to get the pain under control!!!! So I spent new year in a morphine haze surrounded by oxygen, drips and drains! After a few days I was home under the care of a wonderful Mr Wonka and I am now feeling much better, although I will be out of action for a few weeks! So although 2011 didn't start fantastically but I have a feeling it could be the start of something great!!!! So here's hoping for a healthier 2011!!!!
Here are a couple of the flowers I received, along with so many beautiful cards and balloons, thank you so much, I am sooooo fortunate to have such a wonderful family and so many thoughtful friends!
My dad has just dropped me off a new chair for my craft room as the other one was too hard for me after the op so I can finally go and have a little play. Hopefully I will have something to show you soon. In the mean time I will show you my final Chrristmas makes and a couple of other bits over the next few days.
Sorry that this turned into a bit of an essay, I just thought you would all like to know why I had been missing in action. I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and wish you all a happy, healthy and crafty 2011!!!!
Bee back soon xxx
