PIF - Pass it Forward/Quick Makes

PIF ... Pass it forward ... wanna play???

Well it has been my lucky week. I have received two lovely packages from two lovely ladies. Firstly Emma sent me some lovely papers, embelishments and images, and then my dear friend Jill sent me a package whiff some gorgeous new Whiff of Joy stamps and other beautiful ribbons and embelishments. I don't know what I have done to deserve such lovely friends. Thank you ladies love you loads.

Also I received a beautiful swap package from my lovely friend Simone, I had lovely prima flowers and some gorgeous papers, rubber stamps and other things too numerous to mention. Thank you Simone, you are one in a million.

I have also been really lucky to have received a 'PIFs' from the wonderful Marcea. I had never heard of these before until last week when I was bloghopping, who invents these clever treats? I think it is another lovely idea, but what is it I hear you ask. Basically you send a little something to the first 3 people that comment to your PIF post . I am sure you will agree that this is a lovely way to brighten someones day after all we love to receive crafty packages through the post! My PIF arrived Saturday look at the lovely card wallet that it came in. Thank you Marcea for such wonderful PIF goodies, which I will have fun playing with this week.

If you want to have the chance of winning my PIF (which will be a surprise!) please leave a comment under this post. The first three to comment will receive a little package from me this week. Remember when you have received your PIF package from me you have to post it on your blog, and offer PIF to the first 3 comments on your post, hope this makes sense! So what are you waiting for?

This is the lovely wallet card made by the very talented Marcea! Thank you so much x


It was my daughter Jasmines friends birthday yesterday, I made her this card using one of the adorable images by Sally-Ann. Sheis coloured in using the pro markers and some of the crystal lacquer pens. The paper is imaginese. Ribbons and gems from stash.


This is just a quick card using up pieces of paper I had left from another project. Again the adorable image is one of Sally-Anns designs. Aren't her images just the best?

I'm not feeling too good today, I think im sickening for one of those nasty sickness bugs. I'm off to have a lay down, speak to you again tomorrow. Hugs Linda x
