Scrappymom's Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Nifty Fifties!

Hi sweet blog it's Terrific Tuesday Challenge over at Scrappymom's Stamps and the challenge is to use Camping Critters or Nifties Cricut Cartridges or similar cuts from other carts if you don't have those ones! I did a sweet card for my Mum, she's a photographer by day and a singer/guitarist by night....her guitar kinda looks like this one the Nifty Fifties cart! My Mom has been through so much lately with her health and family stuff so I just wanted to let her know I'm thinking of her. She lives a couple of hours away from me so I don't get to see her as often as I would like. :) Have a great day! Hugs x

Sweet Cupcake & My Grafico Sale!

Hey guys...what a week I've had, I hurt my back last Thursday I don't even know how but I woke up and couldn't move...I seem to suffer from sciatica and every now and then this happens, anyway all is ok now and each day it's been getting better and now I'm fine just a little sore sometimes.  We've had builders and people around everyday doing stuff for our extension and last night we lost the electric...I was just sitting down to my desk and poof...gone!  Luckily I had already showered and had a cup of tea! It turned out to be just our house and we had to empty our fridges and freezer....then this morning a team of people got to work digging up our driveway!  Thankfully the fault was found and fixed and we now have electricity...yay! So I made a sweet card! :) Hugs x

Happy, Happy Birthday Card!

Hello sweet blog friends...gorgeous day here, it's my girls Summer school fete today so we were banking on some nice weather.  It's crazy chaos here with all the building work going on, still doing the groundwork for our extension at the moment and we need 10 metre piles this week as we are on soft soil so that's £20,000 going in the ground before we even start!  Anyway onto some crafting time I managed to squeeze in, this was made for a male friend....doesn't look very manly to me but it's bright and fun...right?  What do ya think?  This was so super fast as I already had the banner and the doily shape lying around on my desk so I put it to good use. :) Have a great weekend! Hugs x
