Hopefully as you read this I will be plugging in my new Fridge Freezer at my new house having moved in yesterday. I don't know when we will have Broadband reconnected but am sure I will find something to keep me busy having spent last week packing and cleaning.

Our new challenge at Teddy Bo starting today is Red White & Blue and add bling
Polka dot paper: Making Memories
Union Jack: Little Musings from HERE
Sentiment: Hero Arts Stamp

Unpacked Hugs

New Baby & Blog Candy Reminder

One of my friends became a nanna for the first time a couple of weeks ago to an ikkle baby girl called Summer.
At least we know where Summer here has gone now lol!

I got out my needles and made the little shoes from a free pattern that I found through Tip Nut there are loads of things to sort through on there and not just crafty but cooking and gardening and allsorts - be prepared to lose some time if you've not been there before.........

Don;t forget you have until midnight to enter my blog candy - link on the left - unfortunately we still haven't moved but should be next Monday fingers still crossed



A day late and a bit blurry but here's my TUSAL jar update this time. Not sure how much will be going in it this month as we are supposed to be moving next Monday - nothing like a bit of notice and that is really nothing like a bit of notice LOL!

Hey Ho better to get it over with. If you want to join in hop over to Daffy Cat's blog for all the details.

New Baby at Fussy and Fancy Friday

Whoo Hoo! It's my first DT post for Fussy and Fancy Friday - seems ages since I announced I was joining the team! Anyhoo our theme for the next fortnight is New Baby.

I love blue so I've used Humphrey to make a gift set of card, gift box and tag

I so loved colouring this cute little guy from Crafter's Companion and teamed him with Papermania paper and Die cut stars using Cuttlebug dies and a star embossing folder.
Please pop over to the challenge blog and see what my teamies have created this time.

Fairytale friday

It's Friday again and I still have no idea where my life is disappearing to.
Have you entered our sketch challenge and DT call at Teddy Bo yet? If not why not as we need some more victims for our weekly exploits at the Towers

I've kind of cannibalised the sketch but it's just about there - Boo is my tall child's nickname so expect she'll snaffle this.

Paper: DCVW not sure which one
Kraft Card: Little Claire.

Tilda with Winter Flowers

Last week I technically swapped one of my Tildas for this one with Winter Flowers that I had seen on Nicole's blog - here and fell in love with. I'm still being kind of good with my crafty nil budget and have so far financed myself from eBay and Facebook sales this year - bonus!

I found these papers while I had no internet connection so couldn't buy any new ones and love them as they're a lovely shade of my favourite colour blue and it seems that blue papers are a tad difficult to find.....

Papers: Clipart Fairy grunged up here's a big hug
Flowers: EK Success punches
Sentiment: Whimsy Stamps and Ticket Die

I would like to enter:

Noseless hugs

I'm back sort of!

Arrrrgghhhhhh that kind of sums up the last week and a half - basically the wire that connects our phone line to our house bust and it took BT a week to get out to fix it once it finally died altogether.

Although they say it's fixed we have a really slow connection speed which is driving me barmy although it's better than squinting at my phone lol! Please accept my apologies for not having commented in the last week and I hope to catch up a bit but we should finally exchange contracts on our house this week so I might be living in cardboard city for a while.


PS you might see a few posts over the next couple of days as I've been kind of busy plus I am a blogoholic and it's been 9 days since my last post :c)

Another Heart

I can't get the colours right in this picture - it's the same colour palette as the other 2 - an ace photographer I'm not - obviously. There is a 4th one partially stitched but as I have the attention span of a mentally challenged gnat at the moment I don't know when I will finish it.

I'm constantly finding half drunk cups of coffee round the house that I've forgotten about - at least the microwave is getting some use :c)

Something beginning with H................. I forget

Buttons and Bows with D'Arcy

It's a new batch of D'Arcy's for a new challenge today - this time it's buttons AND bows - yes both I had to go back and add a bow after I forgot to read the theme properly.

I still haven't made a card this week as I have a huge pile of cards that are sat doing nothing so am making tags and toppers for now

Paper & Sentiment: Create with TLC
Ribbon: Crafty Ribbbons

I really don't know what's happening her at the mo I can't get a scheduled post to schedule for love nor money and our phone line has been playing up ever since the sun came out! So am gonna post and run off to pay my credit card bill while I still have a connection

Tea Bag Cards

 I made these ages ago but never got round to posting them. The tea bags were freebies courtesy of various Holiday Inns round the country and the stamps have been free sets with Cardmaking and Papercrafting when I had a subscription.

A Cup of Hugs

Barcelona Bag

My Mother-in-law had a bit of a disappointment last week when her fave team Barcelona were beaten in the Champions League - grin, smile, smirk - by Chelsea :c)
So as a consolation I made her a fold up shopping bag in their team colours.

It's very loud but she likes it and it's already in her handbag

Favourite Book

We have a regular challenge on MSE which is set by the previous winner.
The current one is your favourite book or film set by Margaret who is also celebrating her birthday today.

Can you guess what my favourite book that is also a film could be????
Not really difficult is it even for a bear of little brain......
The stamp is the first one I ever bought and actually came from "the" Pooh Corner in Hartfield nearly 15 years ago the first of just a few :c)

Hunny Filled Hugs

PS the word art was a freebie from Create with TLC notebook 9 for £1 from Poundworld

Sewing Mends the Soul on Teddy Bo Tuesday

We have a new challenge starting today over at Teddy Bo and the theme is Button It! It's a phrase that's used lots in our house as tall child suffers appallingly from verbal diarrhoea lol!
The sentiment is definitely true for me and this tag will be on the wall in my new craft room if we ever get to move.
I've used one of this week's new Oliphant images on my tag as well as:
Embossing: Boofle Folder
Sentiment: Create with TLC
Paper: My Minds Eye offcut
The sewing items are from my sewing box I think the safety pins were my gran's so a vintage touch too!
