Monday again!!

Have been a bit busy recently so have not had time to post. Been out shopping this morning and popped into WH Smith while I was out, got myself a bit of a bargain. Two sets of 3 A4 Drawers for £4.99 each, reduced from £13.99 each. They will be great for all my A4 card and papers, off in a mo to sort it all out. Then I need to make a start on a 30th Birthday card for a very special friend. Also need to finish my recipe book, my daughter has been asking me for ages to put some of my fav recipes into a book for her, have made a start but still got a way to go. Will post pics when finished!!

Forever Friends Birthday card

Its my Mum's birthday just after Mothers Day so had to make something quite different to her MD card, have just expanded my collection of promarkers, quite happy with the colouring on the bear.

Mothers Day cards

Finally got around to making my MD cards, used Tilda for them both, cannot get enough of Tilda at the moment. Still need to add a sentiment to one of them, gave me a chance to try out my new Martha Stewart punches that I have just treated myself to.

Getting there at last

Finally making sense of blogging, thanks to all the advice I have had I have managed to get going with it, trouble is I spend hours playing around with it now and visiting other blogs, going out tonight with some girls that I did my nurse training with so must go and get ready or I will be late again!!

Forever Friends new baby card

Made this Forever Friends new baby card today, one of my best friends has had her first baby, a little girl called Erin. Got lots of babies arriving this year so need to get some stamps, could'nt find one I liked in time for this card so used these decoupage stickers instead.

Sarah Kay Bookmark

Decided that I had to do something with all those strips of card that I get left with when I make a square card from A4, bookmarks I decided and here is my first. Maybe I will make matching ones to go with cards that I send people

struggling to get to grips with blogging, really trying and I'm not a technophobe but I am really finding it hard to add links, for example linking to another blog where blog candy is up for grabs is one example!!!

Janet, creater of the lovely
Pink Gem Designs is giving away 6 free stamps to celebrate her birthday later this month, so pop to her blog and see what its all about.

Sarah Kay

One of my first Sarah Key stamps, used my promarkers, slowly building my collection, I love these stamps, they remind me of a Holly Hobbie rag doll I had as a child

I have just purchased my first Tilda stamps, this is Apple Pie Tilda and I love it. Used promarkers to colour in the image, backing papers were a freebie.
