I am really busy at the moment. I have beavers tonight and also to prep for a class which I have no product for which is tomorrow! GULP. Also I have a large comission I am working on for magazine with deadline looming I need to get a wiggle on with this... so I might not be stamping much for fun this week for sure. Also need to make some cards for Sir Stampalot with the new Butterfly Magnolias for a show in Port Sunlight they are going to.. of course its all the same deadline!! We have no food in the house and no time to shop so I think for once I might actually do a online shop and let them deliver.
I wanted to say "Happy Anniversary" to my wonderful hubby Darren. We have been married for 9 years. We got married on our 11th year anniversary of going out, so thats 20 years we have been together!! We married in St Lucia in 2000. it was a lovely way to do it. What a wonderful way (Not) to spend our anniversary evening with 20 odd little boys and fires in the beaver leaders garden! trying to make sure no-one sets themselves alite! OH and I mean 20 odd.... not odd boys! LOL
I'll be back later with a card I made for one of Harveys friends. I made so lovely cards last night but they are all for the mag so I can't share.. Still you'll have a few months to wait and you can see all 20 cards and 8 tags!

Here is a real mixed card... Stamp from Stampavie - Rachelle Ann Miller
Papers are Stampin' Up!, baubles are from stampingbella.com, flower from The Glitter pot. Promarkers from Silly Monkey.... a real mixed than when tumbled up together make for a really cute card if I dont say so myself!
This piggy image was my fav from the start with this range. I got this one and the two monkeys, both of which the pigs and monkies reminded me of two people not too far from me now!
SO now I have made you run to Sir Stampalot for the new Magnolia, Crafts U Love for the Rachelle Stamp, Stampin' Up! for the papers I need to tell you to run to The Glitter Pot for an exclusive stamp set.... I wont tell you what... just go and look.

Last night was a nightmare, not only did I have this pain to try and see if I could sort, but I literally BLEW UP! my cuttlebug... trying to guess the plates for embossing nesties, put too much in and tried to squeeze it through and BANG! the end of the cuttlebug flew off and now despite Darren putting it back together its not working... Booo Hooo! My little bug has served me well. I am going to miss my lil green guy. Lucky for me Clare came to the rescue with letting me borrow hers and I can finish my prep work. And Saturday I hope I will be coming home with a spanking new pink and black sizzix machine to replace my bug as I have new XL dies I need to use.
Both boys at school today, caiden just for a few hours. I just hope I can shake off this sick feeling, I am feeling very blurgh today. And before anyone asks NO I AM NOT!! LOL
No cards to share today I dont think, I need to prep first and then maybe I will get to show off something.

This one is made with Tilda holding bee, the lovely flower from a past collection and the small bees. The paper and cardstock is SU.

I thought I would enter this card for the second challenge, it being "birthday". I feel this card would be suitable for this occasion or many others! I know I only posted it the other week but I was really pleased with how it turned out and this set has fast become and favourite from the mini catallogue. I have used Petal Pizzaz stamp set with the wording from Occassional Greeting, chocolate chip ribbon, jewelled brads and Sweet Always Paper
The link for Stamp with us is on the right ----->
Todays proper card is the Easter/Spring card I made my Mum, not the normal Eatster card but I really had the urge to get a House Mouse stamp out and tulips are out everywhere right now so the image was fitting for the season.
Paper, Cardstock, Punched Flowers and ribbon are all Stampin'Up!
Image is House Mouse, coloured with Pro Markers
I hope you all have a lovely Easter Sunday.

I coloured this in with watercolour pencils. Beary Cute!!
Have had a very uneventful day today. I have been sorting out some of my storage boxes. A friend owns a shop and she has been giving me her Haribo and other sweet boxes, they are fantastic and stack and just the right size, so I have been labelling them Huggabuggs, Kettos, Leanne Ellis, Cuttlebug folders, Tulle, Anya and more. Its hard to do anything that requires "thinking" with the kids about! so this was the ideal time for this type of job.
I hope you all have a lovely Easter, I am sure I will be back before then, I am planning to try and make a card tonight, but we're see... I am not sure what to use.. Hmm I think maybe an Anya card as I need to use my on the farm set and also another "twilight" idea.

In the words of Bella, "I lovey them all"... here is a picture to drool over! and a little one that I started today.

Today is Kiera my nieces 12th Birthday and this is the card I made for her. I used Wild Rose Designs for the main image.
Not sure what it happening tomorrow, think the rain may well come in, I think I will go for drive and see what happens.
I got a lovely package today from Canada... who can guess what?!

I needed a bookmark for my Twilight books so I thought I would make one! I used the digital Ian baseball from http://www.thegreetingfarm.com/ and coloured him in "Cullen" colours. Those that have read the book will have recognised the fonts as fonts of the handwriting of Bella, Edward and Jacob as well as the title for the book!! which I found online today. I made two, one for me, one for a friend.
Bit cheesed off as I had ordered the DVD but it hasnt come today and I should have just got it from the shops. Oh well maybe tomorrow!
