Hello just a quickie from me this evening, this is just a little card for the lovely Faye over at http://stampinfluffnstuff.blogspot.com/ who so kindly helped with my blinkie nightmare on Saturday. If it hadn't been for Faye I would have eaten my own weight in chocolate digestives and then probably started on the wine (that is a joke about the wine if my parents or Mr Kitty cat are reading this - a bottle of wine can last me at least a week these days in fact it has virtually turned to vinegar by the time I get to the end of a bottle).
Anyway the wonderful Faye sorted out my problem and now I can display everyone's blinkies to my hearts content.
Happy Sunday Everyone
PS I forgot to say the card is made from Polka Doodles paper and tag sentiment and the ladybird ribbon was a freebie from http://www.craftyribbons.com/ recently when I bought some beautiful dotty ribbons, In fact I got the ribbons in 32 different colours and they look so nice I dont want to use them !!!!!!

Hello I hope everyone is having a fabulous Easter and that as well as having lots of fun and eating plenty of chocolate everyone is having time to put their feet up.
Here is my creation for the Willow Sketchie Challenge of which all the details can be found here http://willowsketchiechallenge.blogspot.com/.
To make this card I used the sketch above which can be found on the blog (although I did turn mine around) and an image from the new Polka Doodles Double Sprinkles CD which I coloured in using my Pro-Markers. I can't praise the CD enough as Sharon gives fabulous tutorials on how to colour all the characters in. I then used some papers that I had free in creative cardmaking, many moons ago. Using the cocktail sticks I then did a little bit of knitting and stuck a bead on the end of my sticks.
I have a bit of time off work now so hopefully I will be able to make a few cards this week.
Thanks for Reading
I am entering this card into:

Hello, Just a quick post to share with you a few of the pictures TC has drawn this evening, I knows he's my boy and therefore I am bias but I just think they are so cute. The one of the couple at the top is his interpretation of William and Kate - standing in a crown !
Next post will be a card I promise.
Have a lovely evening

Hello - April is a month when I have so many birthdays so it's a good excuse to start using all those crafty supplies I have bought recently, although don't tell Mr Kitty Cat as he thinks I have had them for ages (in fact since before we were married) and I didn't see the point in correcting him. I love the set of stamps Mice are Nice from Lili Of The Valley, they are just so cute - when I saw them I thought I am just going to have to have them and I was barely able to think of anything else until they arrived at Kitty Quarters. Then of course when they did arrive I didn't want to get them inky ! Anyway I am finally over that now and this is my first creation ! Hopefully Little Anne is off baking cakes and isn't reading my blog or she will have seen her birthday card.
TC came home from school today (very excited) and announced that he has been Jesus for the day and they have been learning all about the Easter Story - I can't quite make out what he has been doing but he has certainly had lots of fun, learnt a lot and that makes me a happy Mummy.
Anyhow as well as the LOTV stamp I also used Pink Petticoat Paper, a Marianne Designs Die (for the flower) and my Promarkers to colour in.
Better go it is Milk, Story and bedtime for my little Man.

Hello - it's been such a beautiful day, thought I would share with you the card I have created today using the new CD from Polka Doodles. The CD is fab and provides tutorials to help you colour the images in and gives tips on how to use your pro markers if you are new to them like me. The backing paper is a pink petticoat one and the flower is made using one of the dies from Marianne Design. The card is for a friend who will be celebrating her birthday on Tuesday.
Poor TC has been up half the night coughing - hence I to have been up half the night as well. Bless he's been in bed all afternoon - not even an M&S hot cross bun (they are his fav's and he can tell if they have come from any where else other than M&S - he's 4 !!!!!) would tempt him to eat anything - so it's an early night for me. Feet up and an episode of Rosemary and Thyme - to be honest the amount of crime dramas I watch it's a wonder I sleep at night at all.
Thanks for stopping by.
PS have a good weekend

Hello, out of all the cards I make a favourite of everyones are still the long cards with peoples names on them, an idea I originally got from the Clip Art Fairy, although these alphabets are from the Nitwits collection. Only a quick post as I am off out this evening at 7.15 and it is now 6.45 and I still need to have a shower, wash my hair, get ready, sort out the stuff I am taking
with me, check TC knows his keywords and put him to bed.
Thanks for looking
