Hello my lovelies I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Well 2015 is nearly here I hope you all have a great start to the year, are any of you making any new year resolutions? 

Sorry my blog has been slow I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that stops by and especially my lovely followers I haven't been blogging much as my second baby is due in a week and my craft bits are all in the loft, I have managed to get up there a few times but not as much as I would of liked.

So thank you for being patient and still visiting me your all wonderful :) and I really appreciate you all.





I used some paper smooches stamps for this card and coloured them with my spectrum noir pencils. 


The grid paper is by prima and I kept this card simple by adding a ribbon :)

Let's party!!!


Hello my lovely friends I hope you all had a great weekend, I'm sorry I haven't posted all week, as it's been boiling hot and I have my craft bits in the loft it's been difficult to craft up there without sweating and feeling very hot. I've tried most nights but had to give up but it's cooler tonight so I was able to pop up there and make this card.

I used my cameo to cut the cloud background by hero arts and I thought it would look better if I used some monster stamps. I coloured them in with my derwent pencils and then stamped the greeting. 


I will be visiting your fab blogs over the next few days to see what you have been up to, I hope you all have a lovely evening and thank you all so much for stopping by.
