MORE CARDS /AWARDs - Thank you

Can you believe its Wednesday already? where has the week gone? I am struggling to find time to craft this week, this colds really takings its toll. I generally seem to be up all night one day and then in bed by 9pm the following day - totally exhausted. I've not been the only one not sleeping i've noticed comments being left at very odd hours in the morning ladies!! Putting my cold aside i have had a good week so far, still no accidents in the car (thank goodness) , and no really traumas from my eldest son this week (he is going through adolescence and has been the child from mars - completely unrecognizable!) . If anyone has any tips on this I would be really pleased to hear them, its come as a total shock to us, and we are not handling it too well I would appreciate any input ont this?!

Two more days and Jasmine finishes for half term week, im sooo looking forward to the more relaxed mornings, although we do seem to have a busy week ahead. Last night we had Jasmines parent/teacher interview. We are thrilled to hear that she is settling in this year. Last year we were told how quiet and reserved she was and how they would like to see her being more active within the class. This year she's gained confidence and is far more active within class discussions, and I must admit i've noticed her confidence growing in various areas. I can't tell you how pleased I am. A child of mine that actually likes school - brilliant!!

So amongst the coughing I have managed to make a couple of cards, although I am not completely happy with the end result of a couple of them.

This card was using one of my new Pollycraft stamps, which I absolutely love! If you havn't been over to the site its well worth a visit, with loads of beautiful downloads and a nice selection of stamps. I must add the service is second to none, I received my stamps within 24 hours! The papers were from prima and the ribbon and glass beads are from my own stash. I used mulberry flowers to add dimension to the stamped image flowers.

The next three cards were made using the same sugar nellie stamp and the same sheet of backing paper. The paper is a design from Chloe's Closet - Afternoon Tea. Flowers, ribbons and glass baubles are from my own stash.

So hope you all have a good day, and look forward to visiting your blogs later this evening. Hugs for now Linda x

Great cards Linda :0)
The only advise I can give you towards your adolescent is count to 10 and remember this time will pass....oh and stock up on hair dye to keep covering the grey or else the kids think they have won lol :0)

Fantastic cards, Linda, I love them all!

What an inspiration to make three cards at once with the same stamp and DP and still manage to make them look so different - Great job! :)

I am so thrilled to be working with you on the "Just Christmas and Birthday Cards" DT! It's a great honour for me to be among such talented crafters.

THANK YOU for the award! Wow! I feel much too spoiled and somehow undeserving. Apologies for not noticing it sooner, I am not very active over the week :(
