Tagged again.... my good friend Deb - I have to share 5 facts about me and then pass this on....ok...

10 years ago, I was just coming to the end of my time at University. I loved every second of it (I went to Edge Hill University) and made some wonderful friends there, whom I am still in touch with today. Fantastic time, but I am very happy to be here now...married and settled with lovely hubby and 2 adorable cats.

Easy!..Clean the fishtank, make some more bags (for a stall I am hopefully doing with them in a couple of weeks), go to m-i-l and f-i-l for tea, go on wii fit, and have a sunday-night bath (always have done this since being a having a long mooch and read in the bath on a sun night!)

Chocolate, a cuppa and a biccie, chocolate, warm bread, and chocolate! :)

Buy a larger house where I could have a craft room and hubby could have a games room and we could have a garage each for our car. Have lots of lovely holidays. Have a holiday with all our friends and family...somwhere abroad.

Warrington (Cheshire), Ormskirk (Lancashire), (in halls of residence, shared house with friends and with a family in their home...they had 7 children all living there aswell as us two was mayhem!) back to Warrington, Slough (hmmm......), and now St Helens in Merseyside.

I have to pass this on now to 5 others.... hopefully you won't mind this tag as its an easy one! :) I'm passing to: Kath , Cass , Zoe, Barbara , and Donna . xxx

I have sold some bags!!!

I have been altering some more bags, and have sold some!!!! I have even had some people make nice comments about them while I have been out shopping! I made Mum one for her birthday yesterday and she took it in the village with her this morning - she had two people ask her where she got it from! I gave her the top bag...called Heart of the garden. I also sold the beach one and the garden fairies one to a lovely teacher I work with at school. I love making them!! xx

My Mums Birthday

...was yesterday and I gave her this card I made. She likes the embssed look, so I used the cuttlebug divine swirls, with a pink petticoat image from the blooming doodles collection. I printed the image twice, and decoupaged all the flowers. I used glittery stickles in the flower centres and liquid pearls at the end of each swirl. The word "mum" is Sue Dreamer stickers, aand I wrote the sentiment myself. xx

Thankyou Gina....and P.I.F CANDY!!!!!

The lovely Gina sent me some stamped image P.I.F (pass it forward) candy , which arrived on my door mat this morning. I had completely forgotten it was coming, so was another lovely surpise! Thanks Gina!!! Now, my job is to pass some onto 3 others... all you have to do, is leave a comment on here, and 3 people will be picked. I will get in touch with you and you send me your address, then I send you some stamped images, you mention it on your blog and keep the game going...passing it onto 3 others. I don't know if there will be many takers, but I will get hubby to pick out 3 names on sunday night next week... about 7pm. (29th June) xx

A surprise for me!!!

A very lovely friend sent me a lovely surprise this week.... Deb made me this wallet card - and even popped some stamped images inside for me!!!! I love it!! Thankyou Deb!

Christenings, last weekend...

I was putting off making these cards for a few weeks.... but was quite pleased once I finished them. For both cards, I used the cuttlebug divine swirls embossing folder. On the first card, i chalked all around the edges, used a matt and layered image in the middle of baby feet and used a heart I embossed and then cut out from the cuttlebug hearts embossing folder. I drew a little cross on it, added blue organza ribbon, and I hand-wrote the sentiment on the bottom. The second card was made in a similar way, but this time, I used a baby-feet locket and covered it with glossy accents, to give a glossy finish. They were well recieved. :)
