RAK from Riane

My blogging friend Riane very kindly sent me a RAK of Penny Black, Magnolia,Rachelle Miller, Hanglar and House Mouse images. I commented on some of Diane's stunning creations and said that I was thinking of buying some Magnolia stamps and she very kindly sent me all of these little beauties. I can't wait until I can get colouring with my prismas. I have used one of the Penny black images on my anniversary card for Steven below. Thank you so much Diane. You are a star! If you haven't stopped by Diane's blog before, go and pay a visit now.

Happy Holidays!

Haven't had any time recently to either craft or blog although that will change now as I am now on holiday for 7 weeks! YIPEE! I'm off to Tenerife tomorrow for 2 weeks for a much needed rest and to visit my brother who lives there. Lucky thing he is! He celebrated his 40th birthday yesterday much to his disgust. I have quickly made a very simple card for him this morning which I will hopefully give to him on Wednesday with his pressie. His birthday cards greeted on time for once! While we are away, Steven and I will celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary so I have also made him a card this morning. I'm now off to get the rest of my packing done as I'm not yet finished! Ta ta for now! Speak soon.

AND THE WINNER IS................

Sorry for the delay everyone. We have been away for the weekend visiting our parents and so didn't get back until quite late this evening. This is why I am so late in posting the winner of my Father's Day challenge. Sorry without further ado ...... Steven has just drawn the winner ...........

Congratuations go to ...........

Well done! Your goodies will be in the post very soon! I still haven't posted a picture of the candy but never mind, it'll be a nice surprise when it gets to you hopefully!

A huge thank you to everyone who took part. I really appreciate it and loved seeing all of your wonderful creations.

Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend.

Speak soon x

Happy Father's Day!

Just a quick post to share with you what I made for my husband Steven for Father's Day from our wee boy Lewis. Made him a card and was really pleased with how it turned out for once! I also made a little book for him using pictures of him and Lewis together doing a range of things and used some Papermania stickers. I used a Flip book that I bought ages ago and haven't gotten around using it till now. He was really delighted with them this morning. Some of the photos aren't so good as we're just back from being away for the weekend so not the best time to be taking photos!

A very happy birthday to my SBS sister Joana! Hope you have a lovely day. Here is the card I made her. Hope it arrived in time! Has been another manic week - still lots of loose ends to tie up at work before the end of term, so no slowing down yet! I'll get around to having some me time to craft soon I hope! Wishful thinking!

I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted! It has been so frustrating not being able to have the time to post or to create anything as I have been knee deep writing reports for my kids - burning the midnight oil a fair bit! There just aren't enough hours in the day. Grrrrr! Anyway, I have a few folks birthdays coming up and so I'll need to get a move on in the creating department. Whilst I have been missing in action, both Sue and Louise have awarded me this award which was very sweet of them. Thank you ladies, I'm very honoured as I like to think that I can be Kreativ when I have the time! Go and check out their blogs, they are both so talented.

I'd like to award this to Kerryn, Maddie, Jenny and Tracy.

Have been trying to catch up with all of my SBS sisters tonight by visiting their sites and seeing what they have been getting up to! Hello to all of you, sorry I have been neglecting you recently. As usual on my travels I have gotten a bit sidetracked and found the following blog candy up for grabs.
