Here is a little card made for a friend whose Dad passed away, just to let her know we are thinking of her.I have used a LOTV die cut, always great for a nice quick easy card. I haven't a clue what the papers are called as have had them for so long, but thought they would go with the image perfectly. I have used my Magnolia swirly die which I have to say I can see me using quite a bit lol... these dies cut beautifully.

The sentiment is Curly Sentiments from SU! stamped in chocolate chip ink.
I am getting quite excited as its nearly March , that means only a few more weeks until NEC time :) I will be meeting up with my lovely friend Linda, we are having a two night stay at the Holiday Inn in Birmingham, so looking forward to it.

SCSC ~ White On White

This week Secret Crafters Challenge is 'White On White' 
I have used a Vellum topper and greeting by Sue Smith that I have had for many many moons, just some of my neglected stash that I am sure we all have.

I have embossed a piece of white card with a SU! embossing folder then edged it with peel off! Gosh been a whiles since I have used any of them lol... used to use them all the time when I first started crafting. The rectangle frame is a Marianne Creatables die, ribbon and pearls from stash.

This week we are sponsored by 'Heather's Hobbie Haven' where you can win $15 Voucher.
I am looking forward to seeing what your create for this weeks challenge.

Time Goes Oh So Quickly

No cards from me this week as have been feeling under the weather! I have had a horrible sore throat  and cough, its drove me mad of a night not being able to sleep for coughing.

Anyway I thought I would share a recent photo with you of our little Granddaughter Sara who is now 12 weeks old! as the saying goes "They are not babies for long" This is her standing on Nanna's knee, as you can see she has a double chin just like mine lol...

I have been a very lucky girl this week and won the amazing prize from Teddy Bo , I am so looking forward to playing with ALL my goodies when I have decided what I would like from the amazing collection of digi's.
The best bit is I get 3 framed hand drawn images of my choosing, which will take print of place in my craft room.
