Isn't he a clever boy!

It Hubby's BDay today, and as i shared the card i made for him in an earlier post i thought i'd share the card our 11 year old Son made him too. I let him loose in my craft room, (i only gave him my scraps box though, i'm not that daft!) and away he went, he even dug out a greeting stamp and die cut himself a tag. I think he's gifted in the art of card making. He just loves it, and has had some cards published in the past, but he never got them returned, so that's put him off submitting again.

Look what i got! thanks Anna. xxx


I've been tagged for the first time by Patsy, (thanks for that), but i'm afraid my 7 facts won't be very interesting, as i'm quite boring.

Here we go then,

-My DH and i where together for 11 years before we finally got married in Cyprus 2005, our son who was 9 at the time was our best man.

-I had gestational diabetes when i was expecting our son, so he was a large baby weighing 9lb 1oz, and was born via C-section.

-We have been foster carers for 4 1/2 years, and have had 7 children stay with us in that time.

-I will be 40 next April., but inside i'm still in my twenties.

-I own a 7 year old Labradoodle, (Labrador/Poodle cross) named Murphy. He's a big lump and acts like a puppy.

-I have known my best friend for 35 years, we don't see each other as much as we'd like to, as she works full time, but we both know we are always there for each other.

-I once bounced down some metal steps on my bottom at a theme park and broke my coccyx, OUCH!

Told you i'm boring.

I can't think of seven people to tag, as most of the blogs i visit have already done this one, so if you read this and haven't been tagged, your it!

Some old Ribbonoasis DT projects

Just thought i'd share some of the stuff i've done for Ribbonoasis, using some gorgeous ribbons from the Summer Fun and Sunny Daze mini mixes Bea sent me.

Final challenge, Hubby's B'Day card.

The final challenge on UKS CC was to create cards using sketches along with recipes. I turned one of the sketches around and used the Knickerbocker glory recipe, (which was a bit of every thing) and made this card for DH who's B'Day is this coming Saturday, he doesn't read my blog so here it is. I will warn him about the pin, as he wouldn't want to get a little prick :).

Where does the time go?

I really can't believe how long it's been since my last post. I done a few LO's for the on-going cyber crop on UKS, this time they are spreading the classes and challenges over three weekends, so it's much more relaxed. I've only managed to do one LO this weekend, as we we're out last night at a 30th birthday party.

Here's a couple of class LO's i did last weekend,
Yesterday was crop day, i run a small crop in the local village hut, we have such a laugh, and some of the ladies even scrap, but not me, i'm there to lend a helping hand for those that need it, make the coffee and prepare and serve lunch.

Today i've been getting the last bits and pieces for our foster child's 3rd birthday tomorrow, she's so excited, and i can't wait to see her little face when she comes down for breakfast to loads of pink balloons we've put up everywhere and a couple of rather large pressies. This is the best bit of fostering, making their special day 'special' and giving them the birthday they may not ever had before.

Say it with flowers

I don't know about you, but i love to receive flowers and also love to give them, especially when someone is poorly or feeling down, they always seem to cheer me, and i hope they have the same effect on the people i send them to. So i've made another card for Patsy's challenge, and hope this bouquet makes her feel even better.

Get well soon Patsy

Patsy has not been well lately, so she's put a challenge on her blog to create a get well card for her. So here's my card for you Hun, made with love.

Monday, 1 October 2007


I've not really had much to say lately, hence the gap between now and my last post.

It's been a funny old week, i received my EBug last Tuesday, and i was so excited about getting it, then couldn't be bothered to play. I've had really bad PMT (sorry too much info) and could have easily committed murder last week, but i'm Ok again now, thank goodness. I really hate it when my hormones take over, and no matter how hard i try, i can't stop them. I really feel sorry to my loved ones, who have to take the brunt of my foul moods when that time comes.

Anyway today i've had a huge boost, i've won a prize for the card i made for the UKS Sept card challenge! I'm still shocked as there was loads of scrummy entries, far better than mine, but my card was chosen as the winner. Thank you Julie from Scrapbooking castle for picking my card. I'm over the moon!

I brought a little girls top from Next yesterday and fell in love with the little hedgehog on it, so i traced it and paper pieced it and put it on this card.
