A Little Gift

I made this little box for 4 little Teelight candles i bought form IKEA, they are rose fragrance so thought i would use my SU' A Rose Is A Rose' set of stamps, shamefully this is their first inking up tut tut. I made my bow with the bow easy which makes life so much easier when it comes to doing pretty bows.

Well whats happened to the weather? Its blinking cold here today and very wet and windy, at least we have no snow.

I had a lovely time at the weekend at the NEC, spent far to much money lol...I met up with my lovely friends from Cuddly Buddly and we shopped until we dropped :) It was lovely to meet Jacqui and Marlene, both lovely lovely ladies. Thanks to Dawny P for her company on the train down to Birmingham, it made the journey a pleasureable one.
Oh well best get going as have promised Dawny i will make my card for the Anya Challenge this week.

Phew i struggled this week to come up with an image for this challenge, but then remember about my PC crafter images i have stored in my archives lol... This bear is from the Bear for all seasons set, so you may well be seeing some more of these. I printed the image out onto linen card then cut out with my nesties. The papers are digi papers from Cuddly Buddly , the Miss Daisy set again, just love the colours.

A Funny Card

This card is for my friends husband, its his birthday tomorrow and i just knew this image was the right one for him when i saw it lol..... I hope he finds it funny, I'm sure he will.
The image was stamped for my by a friend, some time ago so i have no idea whose it is (sorry)

Just Cute Bears #9 'A Sketch'

A Sketch By Jane
This week is a sketch by Jane, its a great sketch to follow.

This week at Just Cute Bears we have a sketch by Jane. I have done something completely different this week and used a download from Cuddly Buddly, Bath time Bear in blue its also available in pink for the girls. The card isn't my usual 6x6 square, instead i have used a 5x7, defo out of my comfort zone lol... The bubbles have had glamour dust added to them to give them a little bit of a shimmer.
I have a whole week off next week so hope to participate in a few challenges, mind i said that last time i was off! I'm excited as am off to the NEC next weekend with some of my Cuddly Buddly pals, we will have so much fun :)
