Been away but I am coming back!!!

I know I havent been on this past week, I have been having a week off from crafting apart from buying craft goodies of course as you can never have a break from that lol

As well as a little week off I have been sorting out the Fundraising Auction on the guinea forum I run with a friend.  I have just today finished making some mini wheekers out of Fimo for the auction.  We also had a few people to email and then all the other bits and bobs that need doing whilst I am online.

I will be back this week with some cards I promise I just need some motivation and a clear desk as its a bit of a mess, tut tut!!

Been Poorly and a challenge

Well last week was my birthday week and it was brilliant, what with being spoilt by hubby and the kids all the  fab cards and gifts from my buddies I woke up on Saturday morning with a very poorly eye.  I have eye drops which have to be done every 2 hours but I have such a headache behind the eye I have been miserable these past few days.  But today it has cleared up a lot so I can see better, but the head ache is still there :(

The theme over at one stitch at a time is; colour combo - Purple and Pink
I have used:
Forever Friends papers which are off cuts in my stash
Flower is Paper Mania 
Sentiment - Feebie stamp from Creativity mag
Image from one of my lovely blogging buddies
Coloured with Pro markers and water colour pencils

Thats it for now Will hopefully be back again tomorrow with another card.

Early Birthday present (tut tut I couldnt wait)

I know I know its my birthday tomorrow but I just couldnt wait I want to show you what my lovely friend sent me  today and whilst we were chatting on MSN we decided that there and then would be a good time to open it.

Here it is my cross stitched chinchilla mounted in a beautiful frame.

I am over the moon with him and never expected a chinny cross stitch!  My friend Anne is brilliant at cross stitch, the detail is fantastic!

little update

Hi all nothing to show you as yet, I know I have been a bit quiet but I am filling out a massive form at the moment and its taking forever as they want to know sooooo much information.

I have received the new creativity mag today from CUTTING EDGE CRAFTS there are some lovely freebie stamps on the front and some great designs using them inside the mag.  The new do crafts goody bag looks nice too, lots of things for men and some fabby stamps.

Might not get on much tomorrow as its my Birthday, 32 eeeeekkkk!!!  Hubby has taken the day off so hopefully we will get out and do some things maybe passing a craft shop or too lol

Right off to the dreaded forms.  I hope you all have a fab day!
