http://kath-allthatglitter.blogspot.com/ - love Kath's blog as she makes just the kind of cards that I aspire to!
http:/crafterskitchen.blogspot.com/ - if you haven't visited Jak's blog - where the heck have you been??- still number one on http://www.craftyblogs.co.uk/- this is the lady who started me making cards, I now have a house full of crafty stash because of this!
http://www.amazingpapergrace.com/ - this lady is the queen of spellbinders dies - you have to vist and take a look!
http://jacqui47.blogspot.com/ - in my opinion queen of the copics!
and this one http://itsallfiddlefart.blogspot.com/ which definately has the best blog name (apart from mine ofcourse!)
http://www.going-buggy.blogspot.com/ - this lady spends some of her year living in Florida and I am sooooooo envious!
and the lowdown on me
1. In the 80's my husband and I lived in Sandbach in Cheshire for 4 years where my dd 1 was born.
2. My body tells me each day that I am all of my 48 years, however in my head it is still 1976 and I am 15. (remember the fabulous hot summer that year?)
3. I love yankee candles and my favourite is vanilla cookie.
4. I am the slowest eater in the world and my family say this is due to my talking during meals (me no!!)
5. My favourite restaurant/cafe is in Florida and is called 'Panera' - they do the most fantastic sarnies and salads and it just happens to be next door to Michaels store.
6. I hate football with a vengance!
7. Music has played a huge part of my life and both my daughters play instruments.

sorry about the photo being slightly blurred but light in my house is very poor this time of year and think its also something to do with the dimensions of the snowflake causing autofocus out of kilter.

First up is one of my favourite Penny Black images 'Cheesecake Party'. This time the papers used are Basic Grey 'Cupcake', buttons from the same collection and ticket tag is an old sizzix die. Sentiment created with 'all mixed up' rubons from doodlebug and basic grey 'wholy cow'. Image coloured with promarkers.
Second card is so simple - created using die from sizzix and 'Pretty Please' papers from M.M.E. and matching bazzill cardstock. Button and fibers from stash.
The third card was made with rubber stampede stamp no 2867h - gerbera daisy and is stamped and layered. Papers used are the same as previous. Gave the old sewing machine an outing to create a funky border.

- she was ofcourse thrilled with it. I had a chance to use my new kids dymo machine - £1.99 from ebay - a bargain and I intend to use if often for adding text and sentiments.
The shirt was cut from the football cartridge on my cricut - cut two shirts on shadow and cut and pieced to create the stripes.

The inside of the card had a boot on a spring.
Had this backing paper forever and haven't got a clue who the manufacturer is.
Circles cut with nestabilities, corners are cuttlebug accents, musical notes are a sizzix sizlit.
