I've been tagged

Hi there. I've been tagged by my blogging friends Glenda (Aardvarkpest) and Louise (Craftylou). Thanks girls.

The rules are:

1. Navigate to where you keep your pictures; select the 6th folder and the 6th picture in that folder.
2. Post the picture on your blog with an explanation of your picture.
3. Tag 6 others to do the same and let them know that they have been tagged.

So here is my picture:

It's of my dog, Holly. 'Chops' is here nickname. In this photo she was taking a nap on one of her favourite toys, her squeaky duck. She looked so cute I just had to have a picture and as I took it, she opened her eyes. 'Please do not disturb' is the look she gave me, so I didn't and apologised to her (like you do!)... lol.

I would now like to pass it on to:






I have only tagged 5 people as this tag has done it's rounds. Looking forward to seeing your photos girls.

Friday Sketchers and Penny Black

Hi everyone, I am combining the Friday Sketchers with the Penny Black 'Lets Get Dotty' Saturday challenge today so here is my entry.

I also thought I would share with you a card I made recently. I was asked by my friend Stacy to make a card for friends of hers who have just had identical baby boys. The romper suit and cap stamp is one I purchased many years ago when Pulling on the Glitz was at their old premises. It's by Stampendous and is one of my favourites to use for baby cards.

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for looking.

Cute card Thursday

Hi there, I would just like to say a big thank-you to everyone who visited my blog last year and to wish a Happy, Healthy and Creative New Year to all.

Well I am busy at the moment with an assignment from Stamp Addicts so look out for a new show on Create and Craft in late February. In the meantime, I have managed to fit in a challenge, and Cute Card Thursday had the perfect theme, 'use something you got or bought around Christmas. Well, between Christmas and New Year, I took myself off to The Glitter Pot, near Haywards Heath, West Sussex, and bought this stamp by Sugarnellie, which was in the sale, perfect. If it is possible for anyone to visit The Glitter Pot, it really is well worth a trip.

I must also say a big thank you to Sue who has given me this award, I am honoured. Check out Sue's blog she has made some wonderful cards. Now the rules in accepting this award is for me to pass it onto 5 others, with links to their blogs as well as Sue's, and letting them know. The other rule is that I must write down 5 things that I am addicted to, at that's easy, so:

1. Obviously my Crafting Goodies.
2. Diet Cherry Cola
3. Strictly Come Dancing (when it's on)
4. Blogging
5. Chocolate

I would like to pass this award onto, Glenda, Louise, Karen, Michele and Rosie.

Happy Crafting and thanks for looking.
