Absolutely love this image which is from Stampavie - it's a Gillian Roberts image and stamps perfectly every single time. Papers are again k and co peppermint twist - think I may now have used up most of my pad.
Again have used liberal quantities of crushed glass glitter for that frosty look.

Image was coloured with promarkers.

and the person leaving tonight is......

I am the recipient of this Kreativ Blogger award from
I feel like someone from I'm a celebrity, get me out of the X factor.
... and I have to pass this award on and
- copy this award to my blog
- link to the person who sent it
- identify 7 facts about myself
- choose 7 other bloggers
- link to their blogs and
- leave a comment
well here goes...
first up is - Tracy Gough a very talented lady! - love Kath's blog as she makes just the kind of cards that I aspire to!

http:/ - if you haven't visited Jak's blog - where the heck have you been??- still number one on this is the lady who started me making cards, I now have a house full of crafty stash because of this! - this lady is the queen of spellbinders dies - you have to vist and take a look! - in my opinion queen of the copics!

and this one which definately has the best blog name (apart from mine ofcourse!) - 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.


Well this was a pleasure to do - love doing sketches as it takes most of the decisions away from you and you can just enjoy chosing the colours/papers and image.

Image is new 2009 stamp called 'Make Believe' - 4007K - coloured with promarkers - papers are K and Co 'Peppermint Twist'and bazzil doodlebug pink - embellished with spellbinders snowflake 1, bell and ribbon from stash. Paper embossed with new kars cuttlebug folder (snow dots)
