Christmas in July!!

Yes I am one of those that thinks about Christmas in fact I always think about Christmas....I love's my most favourite of all the holidays and I try to make it special and magical for my little girls!!!

As soon as I saw one of Regina's new files over at The Cutting Cafe' called Line Paper Note Pad, I knew what I wanted to do with it....I created a sweet little set of Thank you Notes to send after Christmas!!! I used some old K&Co papers from the Peppermint Twist cute and I seem to have loads of it so you'll be seeing lots of creations using it all up!!!
My plan this year is to have everything done and organised by December 1st!!! It's my daughter Molly's birthday on Christmas Day so I have that to organise on top of Christmas which is already hectic!!
I hope you're all enjoying the girls are better now so the fun is just beginning!
Have a great evening!
Sweet hugs to you all,

Summer Spring/Cleaning!!

Hey sweeties! My little girls have both been sick :( Megan my 3 year old caught something on the last couple of days of nursery last week, some kind of sickness bug and last night Molly had it!! So today I have been cleaning/scrubbing disinfecting the house making it all sparkly, I wish I had a wand like on Wizards of Waverly girls love that program!!! While I was at it, I had a big clearout of Molly's bedroom, she is a hoarder so we got ruthless!! I bought her a lovely new duvet cover with cupcakes on...she loves cupcakes like her mama! I still have a ton to do but I am getting there and even though I'm knackered, it feels good to clean!

I made this sweet friends card last night...I'm lovin the colours...the sweet papers are by one of my absolute favourite designers ZOE PEARN and this paper is from Alphabet Soup line....soooo adorably cute!!
Have a great day lovelies, I'm off to do more cleaning!

Sweet hugs and thank you to everyone for all the sweet comments you leave me...they mean so very much!

Hello's such a beautiful day today, I hope it's nice where you are!

I've been wanted to make a card with this gorgeous template designed by Regina over at the Cutting Cafe'...this was a pdf file that I cut out by hand or you can convert the file and use your cutting machine if you have the software. This was super easy to cut with a craft knife and I used Regina's Got Coffee file for the cute sentiment.

Sweet hugs to you all!

Busy as can beeee!

Hello sweet friends....I've had a busy week sorting out house stuff..we finally got planning to have our extension so lots of organising was to be done and then end of school stuff going on as school is out here in the UK on Friday!!! WOOHOO!!!

My sweet friend and one of the mums at school lost her dear husband 10 days ago...she is widowed at age 32 and they have 2 sweet little girls aged 3 and 6 in the same classes as my girls. I am so sad and my heart goes out to this sweet little family whose world has come crashing down. He was diagnosed with cancer 3 months ago. I wanted to make a card and I really struggled....I've never made this type of card before and it was so tough. Please excuse the pictures....I took it first thing this morning before dashing out to Sports Day at school where I gave it to my sweet friend.
On the same day I gave this card, I gave another card to another mum who has just had a little baby Girl....please excuse the blurry pic!!

Have a great day!

Home Sweet Home

Hello lovelies....hope you all had a great weekend! I had a quiet one with some friends over Friday evening for Chinese Takeaway then pottering around at home on Saturday getting some bike items of my husbands ready to sell on eBay and then on Sunday, we went to the in-laws for roast beef...yum!!

In between I made this sweet new home card for my Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law who live in Brisbane's horrible being so far away and we only get to go every 3 years or so :( but I absolutely love Australia!! We did try to emigrate a few years ago but some things got in the way so we're still in the UK for the time being...I think we will stay here now.
Have a lovely week!

Sweet hugs,

We have friends over this evening and it's one of their birthday's on Sunday so I made him this little guy!Our friend is a cancarian so I thought this cute little crab would be a fun, cute card to make. The card is a salmon pink in colour...although you can't tell in the pic for some reason! I think it needs abit of doodling or something...I may do that before I give it out!

Have a fab weekend everyone!

Hootie Patootie!

I had a little play with Create a Critter today...this is definately one of my favourite carts....soooo cute!!!I love the colour scheme I chose for this little one!
I also had to make 3 quick cards too the other week but forgot to show you, I used my Hello Kitty cart for 2 of them and Create a Critter for the little Dino!! I quickly photographed them before dashing out the door but didn't get chance to photograph them individually.

Today my little Megan went back to nursery after her burn....she still has her dressing on but I have put leggings under her dress to keep it all in place.

Well it's been raining this morning after we were issued a hosepipe ban!!! We've not had rain for so long and our grass in the garden is brown instead of!!

Well i'm off to do some chores....oh what fun!!!

Have a great day!

Big hugs, Bonnie xx

Just Because

Hello everyone...I hope you are all having fun and those of you in the US enjoyed the 4th July celebrations!!

We had a fairly quiet daughter went for a sleepover at Nanna & Grandads. My 3 year old Megan burnt the back of her thigh. She climbed up onto the side where I had just had a hot pan....ouch and it was partly on the metal drainer which holds the heat...I felt so bad! We had a couple of trips to the hospital for dressings but thankfully she is all ok and recovering well. I couldn't bath her but tonight I can...wish me luck!
Today I finished off a little box I started yesterday...this cute little box template can be found over at The Cutting Cafe' and is so easy to assemble, I just printed out on cardstock, cut and assembled adding the embellishments. Inside the box I put paper wraps on some little Love Hearts sweets (same as conversation hearts).
Well I'm off to get my girls bathed and to bed....then some crafting time i think!
Enjoy you day wherever you maybe ;)
Sweet hugs, Bonnie xoxox
