Your Favourite Stamp/Image at In the Pink

Good morning my lovely crafty friends
Long time no see!!!

I seem to have lost my Blogging Mojo but luckily not my Crafty Mojo as I am stacked out with Craft Fayre makes, magazine commissions and my own personal cards for friends and family - maybe there just isn't anymore time left for me to blog as well - over and beyond my DT makes and requirements - thank goodness I still have those to get me on here :o)

I am sure things will settle down very soon - I have a Christmas Craft Fayre this evening and then my last one a week on Saturday - I had to say no to 3 others as I know I just couldn't do them justice with so little time available - but nice to know they wanted me hahaha!!!

Anyway I have my DT make for the new challenge over at

IN THE PINK 

to share with you today. I can't tell you how much time I spent trying to decide what image to use as the theme is

YOUR FAVOURITE STAMP/IMAGE

I have sooooooo many favourites - depending on the mood and who the card/project is for so I really struggled to pinpoint a specific favourite. However, I totally love the Gorjuss Girls and they were one of my very first purchases many moons ago when I began on this road of creativity so I decided to choose one of those and here's what I  did:

Fancy Fold or Shaped Cards at In the Pink

Good morning crafty peeps. 
Don't fall over but I'm back again with another post - twice in one week must be on a roll lol!!!

Well maybe not on a roll but thank goodness for DT commitments or I might not get on here at all!!!

I'm feeling a little lost this morning as Jack spent the night at his girlfriend's house - first time I have allowed him to stay on a school night - a sign he is growing up and I am trying to embrace it - but it's not easy :o(

So today I have a rather pathetic effort for my DT make to share with you for the new challenge over at 


and this time we would like to see your 

FANCY FOLDS or SHAPED CARDS

I took the easy route of a fancy shaped card using one of my favourite but not often used Go Kreate dies
So trying to keep with 'flatter' style Christmas cards for lower postage costs I haven't added to many heavy embellishments or too many layers.

We have the fabulous Jill from 
as our sponsor this time - offering 1 lucky winner:


Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the far more fabulous  inspiration from my lovely Pink Lady DT buddies - you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.

Christmas Critters

Good evening my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are all well and those not I wish well soon.
Once again I find myself starting my post with an apology for being absent and a bad blogger but this time it's because I have been a little bit poorly :o(
Nothing serious just a stonking headache and nausea - I think Jack kindly passed on a bug that he had the week before. 
Happy to report that although I still have a headache I am not feeling sick anymore - thank goodness!!!!

Unfortunately though it did mean I had to cancel my trip to the NEC on Thursday which meant I didn't get the chance to meet up with some lovely blogging buddies - in particular Marianne and Lynsey - so sorry I didn't make it - will have to try again next year :o)

As you can imagine I felt rather sorry for myself for a few days but a day spent with all the girls - including Jack's girlfriend - and all the boys on Sunday soon cheered me up :o)

So today I'm here to share my DT project for the new challenge over at

PAPERTAKE WEEKLY

and this week the lovely Dawny has picked the theme

CHRISTMAS CRITTERS

I decided to make another piece of Festive Home Decor - hope you're not getting bored with them!!

The last one of these I shared with you was decorated with Traditional colours so I thought this would be an alternative Contemporary theme to offer on my Craft table - my first Christmas Craft Fayre is this Sunday - eek!!!!

Hope to catch up with you soon.
Have a fab evening.
