Some Awards!

As usual I am always so flattered and honoured to receive awards, its a great boost and just lets me know that my work is helping to inspire others just as others inspire me!

These awards are the friendship and Lemonade stand awards which i have received from Gloria. So Gloria a great BIG THANK YOU to you!

The instructions for each award are as follows:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated" It also says: "Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award." (Friendship)
Nominate 5 to 10 blogs you feel show great attitude and gratitude. Link to your nominees within your blog post.- Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award. Link back to the person who gave you the award to show your appreciation. (Lemonade Stand)

So here is my list of those I'd like to pass this award onto, these are people whom through them and their blogs help inspire and motivate me:


Messy Rabbits & More Candy!!!

I know, I know......Ive been absent again......BUT I do have some projects to share with you. I have been asked to do some demos and some workshops at a new craft shop that has just opened local to me and I have been given Joanna Sheen's Messy Rabbits to play with...

My first project is a gift bag and card set using DIY Messy Rabbit, dp papers are from stash. Images have been embossed, coloured with CS watercolour paints (which gives them a lovely sheen) and then layered. Video instructions for this gift bag (which is easy peasy!!!) can be found here.

In my second project using DIY messy rabbit I have made a gift box and card. The backing papers are from a new digital download website that my friend Lynsay told me about called NitWits (what a great wacky name!) Again the image had been stamped and embossed and coloured with CS watercolours.

In this picture is a view of the gift box open, which is exactly the perfect size for those pocket tissues!......I have a template for this gift box which for the life of me I can't remember where I got it from, but I shall try to have a look and get instructions to link.....its a great little box!

And FINALLY.....just to let you know that some extra goodies have been added to my anniversary blog candy I dont have piccies, but can give u a clue: cuttlebug, dp, and more stamps!!!!!!!!......its a biggy!!!.....and the only way to get your hands on it is to enter here.

Back soon with more Messy rabbit projects. lol x

There's gotta be a little rain sometimes!!!........

Well, we certainly had rain/clouds and not alot of sun this long weekend, but then no surprise there!!!!!

However, along with the bad weather I have been tearing my hair out with our computers here at home, up until today we have been without!!! (thats 3.5 days without!!).....and its been a nightmare. Its not until you go without that you suddenly realise how much use and how much you rely on it!!......

So to everyone who has been waiting for me to send you replies etc., "Im sorry" but it really was out of my control! and Im getting back as quick as I can. Thanks xx

Anyway, I have managed to make another project for you, despite the weather we still had a really busy weekend, but I got to escape for a couple of hours.......

The stamped image is a 'little lovins' from Rubbernecker the background fence is a Magnolia stamp. I have doodled around the frame and the sentiment was printed on the pc. The dp is from my scrap stash.
