Tilda with Ruffled dress

Morning everyone. I'm off work today as feeling really poorly. Again! Trying to keep some liquid down as the moment so thought I'd pop on here to distract me a bit. It's safe now to post this card that I made from my SBS sister Sammi's birthday as she received it yesterday. PP was downloaded for free here. I'll definitely be using these papers again as I really love the bright colours. The Tilda stamp is a new one I bought recently as I thought it would be perfect for paper piecing (which I haven't tried yet!), the prima flowers are from my stash, the Happy Birthday tile was a freebie with a magazine I bought (can't remember which one!) and the Happy Birthday embossed card is from someone who sent me a PIF gift a while back (sorry, can't remember who!) I absolutely want a Cuttlebug and I'm hoping desperately that Santa might bring me one. In the meantime, I think I'm going to have to buy some embossed bits and pieces from someone on Ebay to keep me going until then as I really would like some of the snowflake and swiss dots for making Christmas cards.

On another note, I'm wondering if any bloggers out there have ever held a Creative Memories party? I've agreed to have a party, but don't really know too much about what to expect other than it's a bit like having a scrapbooking session and you can spend lots of money (if you wish) buying some lovely scrapbooking materials. I'd be interested in anything you know about it.

My lovely blogging friend Nikki is celebrating reaching 20,000 hits on her blog and is offering a Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper pad, High Hopes stamp "Snow Sweet Snowlady" (s0 cute!) with "Glorious Day" sentiment stamp. Nikki is such a talented lady who constantly inspires me when I visit her blog and she leaves the loveliest comments on my blog too which I really appreciate. Go and visit her today and add her to your blogroll if she isn't already on there! Leave her a comment on her her blog candy post before 17th September to be in with a chance of winning!

Suzanne who is part of Katharina's Whiff of Joy design team and is celebrating almost reaching 20,000 hits is offering the opportunity to win some fantastic blog candy which includes a gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamp, some basic grey paper, stickles, ribbon, jewels and prima flowers. For the chance to win, visit Suzanne's blog and tell her what your favourite film is before tomorrow evening. She is such a talented lady, you'll want to keep visiting her!

Have a great day wherever you are!

Thanks Lainy!! I LOVE this card! It's gorgeous and even better in real life!

Sorry you are feeling poorly! Hope you are better soon!!

I want the Swiss Dots folder - If I find it I will send you some embossed card! :)

I was a Creative memories Consultant a few years back... great products :) ...LOTS of yummy stuff to buy!! ... consumables and tools!! They are really about preserving your memories - so they should teach you (and try to sell to you products) to keep your photos "safe" ... I can go on more if you want... Do you have any specific questions?
