Its my Birthday shouts the blog!!!!

Hi everyone, how are we all? well I hope. I am freezing!!! just cannot seem to get those toes warmed, grrrr. Who gave the teachers an increased homework pill???? my gosh it has been coming out of my ears!!! and still my daughter has more this morning from her communion lesson. My nan is continuing to improve thank goodness, thankyou all so much for your kind words and wishes this week it really helped me :O)

So due to everything else thats been happening I have struggled to keep up and make many cards this week, I am trying to have another catch up day which is helped by my blog candy wins so many pretty papers I dont know what to do with myself lol Thankyou so much Karen I am over the moon with all my candy :O), and hopefully normal blog updates will now resume.

This week the theme is "Frame it", I could feel myself breathing a sigh of relief, I have frames lol, the dt cards are absolutely STUNNING!!! Heres mine:-
This has to be my fave pb stamp, I coloured it with promarkers and framed it using the sizzix scalloped frame. The patterened papers are k&co, the ribbon stampin up I have tried in vain to get my ribbon bows like this and at last it worked! and the are flowers prima, I love this colour combo not sure if I have done it before but the brown and red together really suited my mood for this card.Heres the Inside:-yep I am still doing them, this is the longest new years resolution I have ever had! lol. Thanks for

Just Christmas and Birthday Challenge

This week there is a fabulous sketch from Simone to follow, Here is mine:-I coloured the image with promarkers, and again the patterened paper is k&co, I used the sizzix frame and cut the scallops from it, the ribbon is stampin up, and the sentiment sugar nellie. Heres the inside:-Thanks for

Now for the LONG bit of my post, sorry I am trying not to ramble on......... BUT I have awards to give out........I recieved this award from Maggie Bob, now how chuffed am I to have this one as its one Maggie Bob has created and it is to be given to 3 others, Maggie Bob thankyou so much I feel honoured to have been one of the first people to recieve an award you have created :O) so I am passing this one on to Rach, Kath, and Debbie.I recieved this award from Michele, thankyou so much Hunny I am chuffed that you thought of me, this award is to be passed on to 5 others so heres my 5:- Pascale, Viv, Donna, Emma, and Alex. sorry if you already have it.and this award I recieved from Pascale, thankyou so much hun I am so chuffed to recieve this from you :O) I think you are the only person who likes my ramblings lol :O) This award is for people who show attitude or gratitude and I am honoured to be recognised for that, so I am passing this on to 5 others who have touched me one way or another, not to say anyone I havent given this to hasnt but the rules state 5, now that was a ramble lol:- Sue, Mandi, Karen, Heidi, Linda.

As My title says its my Blogs birthday today yippee, happy birthday my friend :O) I tell you I never thought I would become so addicted, and meet so many friendly and talented people through a blog, I was far to shy to join any challenges until I had my blog for about 8 months lol, and I was far to nervous to go and comment on anyones cards how time changes! I really do value and appreciate every single comment. I will have some candy its just delayed for a little while :O) but from me and my blog, Thankyou so very much for taking the time to visit, comment and accept us in blogland :O) xxxxxx
