Secret Sister

I've been taking part in a secret sister swap since June where every month we send a card anonymously (sp?) to the same person. As my "sister" now knows who I am LOL, I think it's okay to show the cards I sent.

I tried to change my card making style so she wouldn't guess it was me and I think it worked LOL

This froggy one went missing in the post - blooming Royal Mail!!!

Friends birthday card

A really good friend at work has just left the company to follow his (and his girlfriends) dream of moving to Scotland. Before he left, I promised that I'd send him a birthday card - couldn't forget the date as he put in my work diary for the 1st December "someone's birthday!".

He's into chickens (oooo err missus) - watch this space for his Christmas card ;o) but is an animal person so the Penny Black frog stickers came in really handy. Did intend to use a stamp but ran out of time.

Tag time

I’ve been tagged by my very good friend Kerrie (((hugs)))

1 - If you could have $100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
Oh no, I'm stuck on the first question! Paper or embellies??? At the moment, I'd have to go for the paper as it can make or break a card/scrapbook page. Also, after going to the US last year, I know how much paper you can get for $100 !!!

2 -If you had to choose between using only stamps or ribbons, which would you choose?
Stamps, stamps, stamps :o) Never thought I'd be this addicted but after a few words of encouragement from the same crafty friends I've never looked back. That's not to say that I'm not addicted to ribbons as well ;o)

3 - If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year…which would you do?
It would have to be layouts as I really need to get a surprise scrapbook started for my sisters 40th and I haven’t started it yet. D’day, or as I like to call it “the chance to wind up my sister big time” is in January 2009 so doing fab layouts during 2008 would be ideal !!!

4 - Would you rather own a scrap booking store or have your own scrapping room at home?
I’ve kind of got my own craft room. Although it is a bit small and is also the guest room but I’d love a craft shop. Ooooh the chance to go to the trade shows would be great.

5 - What is your CURRENT card making or scrapping style?
In both cards and scrapbook pages, it has to be pink and girly all the time for me.

Now I have to tag another 5 people. Ooooooh who do I pick. Right, I've decided to choose my UK Scrapper teamies - the Pink Glitter Girls :o)


Please answer the questions on your blog and tag 5 more people to answer the same questions……….make sure you list on your blog who you are tagging

C'mon the Spurs

They're playing in the UEFA cup tonight and, after the last European performance at White Hart Lane, they need all the help they can get LOL

Think Pink

Despite an emotional week, I had some fab news on Wednesday.

A friend organised a competition for Breast Cancer Awarenewss. We all paid £1 for every card we entered and raised a brilliant £135. All the cards were then sent to Kerrie so she could send them onto the charity to raise even more money for such a worthwhile cause.

Here's piccies of the cards that I sent. I was very happy as I unexpectedly won the Christmas and Thinking of You categories.

Sad news

Another 2 weeks have passed since I blogged - sorry!!!

I haven't done much crafting as life has been a bit hectic with work and family. Seems like I've just been coming home to sleep - the things I do for work. On the family side, my uncle sadly passed away on Wednesday night. He had been very ill in hospital. Wasn't going to mention it but it felt weird not to.

Last but not least

No posts for 2 weeks and then 2 in a day :o)

I've just done this card for my Brother-in-law. His birthday's on Sunday and Beerafella was perfect for it. It's the first time I've ever made a card for my BIL. I felt a bit mean that I've done cards for every other member of the family but never him.

The fab thing is that this is the last of the family birthday/anniversary cards until the end of December. Next on the list - Christmas cards

Busy busy busy

Haven't blogged for a couple of weeks as I've been really busy at work.

Just about managed to keep up with the cards.

This one's for my mum and dads 44th wedding anniversary on Friday. Mum collects Paintbox Poppets collectible ornaments and dad buys them for her so this decoupage image was perfect :)

This one was for my cousins little boy.
