Hello there! Well, I have had all the babes with me today ,as the older two had inset day. I went to see the teachers and boy did the kids do well!!! The eldest especially ,she is excelling all expectations. The teacher put her in the top maths set to see if she could meet the challenge and apparently she did more than meet it. So Proud!!! She also did wonderfully in her writing test I am just brimming with pride. The teacher was mesmerised by her perfectly written story. My boy is doing well too just needs to perfect his writing ,still plenty of time as the teacher pointed out. I am going to treat them to Super Mario cart as a treat for making me the proudest mummy!!!!
Here is my card for the sketch and stash challenge . I used my new pretty hat Anya and one of the accessories is a rabbit, so handy at this time of the year. I used a new fold to me the diamond pop up fold. I think that the sketch is beautiful, simple and versatile. I had lots of ideas floating around on seeing it. I slightly rotated the sketch to make the card so I hope this counts.

Here is my card for this lovely sketch at Sketch Saturday . I love this sketch! I used my rockstar Anya, I used K & co papers and I used musical notes for all the circles/embellies. I paper pieced her dress. The picture is not the greatest but the daylight had gone apologies for that.
A bit of peace and quiet after the bowling, they all ate really well!!!!!
I liked this one as they are laughing about who is winning. Dexter on the left won just beating Harry on the right, after getting a strike.
This one is my eldest and I love that she is crossing her fingers as she is watching the ball. In the background is Enrique and Liam.
This is my youngest daughter had to put one of her in!
6 already feels like yesterday he was born!!! I am wishing my Handsome Harry a very happy birthday!!! We are just getting ready to go bowling and pizza with 5 of his friends will try and post some piccies later. Gonna try and make a card for at least one challenge today if I am really ambitious 2.

Hi I have made this card for for the arty girlz final challenge :( , which is stamping and the crafty pad challenge which is making a card for a female. I would love a card like this to pop through my letterbox so I this is my entry. I stamped Faith and then paperpieced the jacket and added some gems as buttons. I coloured her with copics. I stamped with red ink and my new penny black stamp around the edges of her to frame her. I added the same stamp in black this time to the backing paper. I added a layer of card some ribbon and more gems. No sentiment for this one.

I have received this award from two of my lovely blogging friends Joey and Sue , who I hope to meet up with in September as I can't meet them in April. I am passing it right back to these two and Lorraine A , Kim and all my followers. I love all the comments you leave on my blog each and everyone makes my day! I have had a lovely day, i got flowers, body shop goodies, and a lovely pizza by the river with a large glass of red wine!!! I am feeling a little sad as where we park the car is outside Jade's mum's block of flats as we were walking back to the car it dawned on me, not only have the boys lost their mum on mothers day, a mother has lost her daughter and a grandmother her grandaughter, how will they ever be able to enjoy mothers day again. My youngest daughter was born on mothers day and it was so joyous and so I can only imagine how they will view this day with pain. A new light is in heaven peace be with you JADE! I hope that her family will find some peace in the fact she will save millions of lives in the future through her raising awareness of this awful disease. My mum collapsed when I was 3 weeks old with womb cancer and she really thought she was going to die, I was raised until I was 9 months old by another family. I still have my mum she is 67 and strong.

Hi a late one for me. I have made a card for the club anya challenge which is to make a rockin rebel out of all your greeting farm stamps. I made the most current British rockin rebel Amy Winehouse. I used Angel Anya and Ian from Rock the farm. I used the hair from Ian and Angel Anya for Amy's famous beehive and Angel anya for the rest of her. I made her into the cover of Rolling stone Magazine as she has been on the front cover. I took inspiration from her album title "Back to black" and used just black and white. If you have some Anya or Greeting farm stamps check out the challenge as it is real fun and the other entrants and the Design teams are all fab!
Hello again I know I wasn't supposed to be about today but I still have a couple of hours spare so I made this. I coloured in the image last night so don't think I am supersonic or anything. I used a high hopes well and sugar nellie stamp for the image. I used K and Co papers. The sketch is from sketch saturday .

Hello I had to make a card for a friend who gave me a lift home from the hospital on Monday following my son's little trip there. He is slowly getting better thanks to you all for your lovely messages! I really appreciate your words. I have brought a bottle of Rose and I made this using the Cute card Thursday recipe.
*4 ( only ) embellishments
I tore my blue hotp papers to make the river. I added a dragonfly, saftey pin, handmade hook and line and an extra fish as my embellishments. I used my K and co scrap paper to make some reeds. I doodled a frame and coloured it in to make it look like rope. I used my yummy greeting farm stamp Ian (rock the farm set). I know Katie ,who is Julians husband ,loves to reuse my cards so I just added the sentiment Just a note to say, this means it remains a versitile card.

I have made this card for two challenges one is the sketch from sketch saturday and the other is Basic grey challenge. The challenge at basic grey is to have all round edges not an angle in sight.
The image is crafters companion I wanted to be non cutsie for this one. I love cutsie at the moment though so I am certainly not knocking it. I am looking forward to a lovely hot and sour soup and crispy duck takeaway this evening!!!!! I have not decided yet if I am going to try one more card or not.
Well so much for a crafty day!!!!! I have been having a good clear out of the kids room. I have had to take down the curtains and pull out a lot of stuff. The balcony above is leaking and causing a lot of mould. No wonder we are all poorly! I will stop moaning. It just helps to vent it when you are getting angry ,I promise I am not seeking sympathy. This is my entry for the Penny Black challenge. I used recess papers by Basic Grey and I coloured with copics and a white gelly pen. I used buttons to embellish. I am on my third load of washing too!!! Grrrr!!!!!
