Summer is almost here, really it is !!!!!  I here a rumour that the British strawberries are ripe, juicy and sweet.  I've not had any yet but my little dragon friend has.

I created this card using the Dragon Dayz CD from my website

This is my entry into the CD Sunday Challenge Blog.

Created using the Rainbow Rose Collection CD, a wee bit of silver mirri card and some gems.


Feathered Friends

It may be very cold and very very wet outside today but the garden has been a hive of activity.  I've spent the last hour watching 4 or 5 little blue tits weaving in and out of the trees and bushes.  They were then joined by a little blackbird and then big black crow had to swoop in and spoil the party!!!!

I always get a sense of doom when I discover the date is Friday 13th!!!!  No idea why, I've just sat here minding my own business just waiting for it to go away, so far so good nothing major has happened.

Been a busy week here keeping the kids occupied during the coldest and wettest holidays ever!!!!  I pretty much guarantee that the sun will shine first thing Monday morning!!!

Normal service shall resume shortly with some samples and demos and babbling and blethering.

Have a great weekend.

Right on trend ............ not.
Once upon a time I was young and slender and incredibly unfashionable!!!!!  Why were shell suits so fashionable, they were once upon a time werent they?????

When was it ever ok to wear glasses that covered your entire face????  And the curly hair well lets not even comment on that!!!

But the leggings .................... at long last fashion has finally caught up with me, albeit 18 years later but I was a trendsetter I just didnt know it!!!!!  Funky leggings are all the rage right now, not quite sure how long the the trend will last (hopefully not long, cant imagine my butt in a pair of them now!!!)

I've showed you mine now you have to show me yours, come on my little trendsetting bloggers we all want to see your fashion faux pas!!!!!

A crafty prize for the best(worst) one.

Sorry for the delay in picking a winner, the orders have come in thick and fast and we wanted to get them out pronto.  Name in the hat and the winner is (insert drum roll here) .........


Congratulations Janet if you can send me your address using the Contact Form on my website  I will get your card and CD off to you asap.

Thank you to everyone for your wonderful comments, stay tuned for more fun and giveaways coming soon.  The CD is now available on the website and if you find the bouncy little Easter Eggs on the website you can get 10% off.  Gotta find those little eggs though.



Yesterday the little blue tit had custody of the tree, today its Mr Squirrels turn.  We have a fairly small garden but its amazing the amount of visitors we get to it on a daily basis, I love it, I wonder who will be joining us tomorrow, a big bear, an eagle, oooh the mind boggles!!!!.  Before I stayed here I was in a city flat so only saw seagulls and pigeons!

So thrilled that the Nouveau Rose CD is finally launched which means its time for the winner of the card and CD to be drawn.  I will put all the names into a hat and I will get hubby to blindly draw one out the winner be announced at 2pm today.  Good luck to you all.

Did it really snow yesterday or was it just a figment of my creative imagination.  I have been having some pretty weird dreams lately!!!  Its positively tropical today like yesterday never happened!!!

Because of the bad weather it meant I could stay inside and get creative, work on the Nouveau Rose CD is almost complete but I took some time out to make a card.

Last push today to get the cd finalised, tested and ready for production then its craft room here I come.

Have a great day

I so hate being wrong, the weather men threatened snow and I didnt believe them one tiny little bit!!!  Woke up and 5.30 this morning and thought I was dreaming, went back to bed and got up again at 6.30 and nope it was true this is what the back garden looked like!!!  Its now 9am and still falling!

One week ago we were down the beach in the evening.  Children were paddling, students were having a bbq, surfers were surfing and we were having a great time playing with the dog!

Life really is throwing us some curve balls lately, I cant help thinking we are just one big big brother experiment and on another planet far away some little alien beings are having a real blast at our expense!!!!

Who knows what tomorrow has in store!!!!!

Woooo hooooo (ok I'm faking it).  Its Monday, its the first day of the childrens holidays and guess what??? 
ITS RAINING!!!  Its like some kind of law that it must rain at Easter!!!

The kids are all very creative so we'll just have to have a rummage in the craft room and make stuff, probably a mess but so long as they are happy then its ok.  In fact we brought down a huge box of photos from the loft last week so I think scrapbooking should keep them entertained for a while.  That way I can get on with some designing and creating!!

First of all its cuppa tea time.

Have a great week
