Hi all, I am having a 'chill' day today, well sort of, so I have been playing a little catch up and decided to post a card that I made not long ago.
I have gone mono with just a touch of red, I have used one of my beloved Tilda stamps this one is called Tilda with tulips, all my Tilda stamps are my favourites but there are one or two that stand out and this is one of them.
I coloured her with markers, the papers are Bo Bunny and I added 2 doilies one black and one white, I added a bow and some pearl drops finally I stamped a 'with love' sentiment.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

An update on my move is that the carpet was fitted yesterday and I cleaned the windows it looks so much fresher, brighter and bigger.
I have ordered my cooker and fridge which should be delivered on Friday, there are still things for me to do and hopefully I can get my main furnishings in at the weekend.

I may be off line for a little while as I will not be connected to the internet until 6th March

I am in limbo land at the moment as this is such a big step for me to take and my brain is in overdrive, but I hope that things will work out for us.

Thank you all once again for being so kind and understanding

Scheduled Post
Hi all, Today is the start of our new challenge at

the theme for the next 2 weeks is 
( please use a stamp somewhere on our project)

Our lovely team mate Danoesja has donated this wonderful prize for the winner

and here us my card 
I have used one of my Gorjuss girl set of stamps that have never been used before, I stamped and coloured her then cut her out, the die cut frame is a Tattered Lace one, the papers and numbers come from the set of papers and die cuts that I bought some time ago, the simply gorjuss is a stamp that also came from a Gorjuss special set, I added a die cut Rosette, fabric flower and some pearls.

Thank you all so very much for popping by and leaving me such lovely comments on my previous posts, 

I think we are all experiencing sleepless nights at the moment although the baby is doing so well he is a perfect darling.

I myself am in the process of moving, I decided some time ago to sell my house and move into a studio flat.  

I have quite a lot to do to get it ready but I am so very lucky to have so many wonderful people willing to help

I am hoping that the move will be completed within the next 10 days, it will then give the new parents and baby time to bond as a family and to settle into a life of their own as they will be staying in the house until it is sold.

This is a major change for us all especially James and myself as we have been together for 26 years,  

Many thanks to you all for your friendship, support and understanding

Hi all, I want to thank you all for your wonderful comments on my previous posts, I do apologise for not being around but we are trying to adjust to our beautiful new baby bundle, lol.  
I thought I would share this card with you that I made before the birth of my Grandson, this is the first time I have been able to really sit down to do work on my computer.
I have a little graphic at the end of this post that hopefully you will have ago with, I was asked if I would share this on my blog to generate some fun and an awareness that February is not only the month of Love but on February 20th it is 
how awesome is that, although everyday is love my pet day for me and many of you I am sure, but please try join in the fun.
Here are a couple of sites that you can visit
My card features a digital image from CHING-CHOU KUIK called Key to my Heart, I have coloured her with markers, the papers are Bearly Mine, I have added a SU stamped sentiment and used my SU punch for the butterflies, I also used my label punch for the gold strips, I then added red beads in a bottle and some flowers.

 I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Now on to the fun part, I was asked by Rachel at Puppyspot if I would share this chart with you.

How would you go about choosing a new puppy to join your family?  Well here is a Breed Compatibility chart that could give you some idea of what breed to opt for,  it let's you know their traits and what other breeds they are best to team with,  try it out and see what you come up with, leave your answer in a comment and as an added bonus I will choose 1 or maybe 2 of you to win a prize that is craft related.

Love & hugs
