My Favourites

Hi everyone. Well I'm getting to grips with my new laptop. Hubby has put the Photoshop Elements 10 trial on for me and has promised to get me the full version in the new year. I would love to make some sketches if I could fathom out how.
As many bloggers have been doing, heres a selection of my favourites from the past year. 
I still have alot of these cards so will have to think about passing them on to a charity to sell on for fundraising.
Think I've made too many lol













Well thats it from me for this year. Back for 2012 with many more cards and I may even get to ink                        up the many new stamps that are still in wrappers. I'm a nawty girl aren't I...Would put myself on a ban but a total waste of time coz I cant say no- hehe

Thanks for looking and wishing you all a
Happy New Year!!

I'm a Lilis Little Fairy!

Firstly apologies for this weird post, different text, sizes, layout and all the added extra, not me. Blogger must be having an off day!
Hello everyone, I'm here with happy news and cant wait to share. I was on the  LOTV DT for quite a long time and was so saddened when I heard that the challenge blog would be closing. But good ole' Jacqui came to the rescue and has saved the challenge blog under the new name of "Lilis Little Fairies" and yep, I'm on the DT along with lots of other talented crafters. The challenge blog will be the same as before, just for LOTV products and we start again on the 5th January 2012. In the meantime there are lots of fab goodies up for grabs over at Lilis Little Fairies so pop on over and take a look. Thanks Jacqui and cant wait to work along with my new teamies.
Now sorry for my lack of blogging. Tis the time of year where my hands are busy shopping instead of crafting. Hubbys birthday the other day and last night we went and saw Daniel in his school production of Joseph. Lots of wrapping and the kids all break up today so will cram as much in as I can, although the weather here in Kent is pretty pants even a little snow flurry.
 I doubt I'll have anytime to post anything before the new year but am gonna be back with some of my favourites.

So will love you and leave you for now and dont forget to change your old lotv banner to this gorgeous new design.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and hope all your christmas preparations are all going well.
Back soon!

CES DT Card & Challenges!

Happy Saturday everyone.Well its the first weekend in December and its not nice out there. Today our christmas tree goes up and we will decorate the outside with lights to.  Zoes so looking forward to help me decorating it. I think I'm finally in christmas mode. Presents are building up and am making a very late start on my cards. 
This weeks challenge over at the CES Challenge Blog is "Bear Necessities". I just had to use "James Bear" from LOTV, he's one of my favourite crimbo stamps. Coloured with Copics & Flexmarkers, papers are Bo Bunny Father Christmas Collection, distressed with my new Zutter Distrezz It All and for a first have backed with Kraft instead of Bazzill. The tiles are the Papermania S/A Wooden Tiles that must be discontinued as I can find them anywhere. Think I'm going to cry when I run out of letters. If any of you stamp companys want to manufacture something similar, I will be your first customer and buy in bulk!!!
