Saturday, 3 January 2009


Its Saturday again girls, can you beleive that. I wanted to thank all my lovely blogging friends who took the time to email me so that i could add their names back into my contact list. I appreciate you taking the time, and i look forward to keeping in touch with you this year. I havn't managed to do much crafting still, only this Bella card that i have made for a special someone on the big swap blog. I am really loving these Bellas at the moment. I have had several ladies asking where they can get them from. These were actually just images sent to me, i do however have a small selection of Bellas, that i would happily ink up for anyone who would like them. If you would like me to do this please drop me an email to with your name and address and ill get on to it just as soon as time allows.

The papers for this card were from the DCWV bittersweet stack, there are some absolutely stunning papers in there, it was very hard to cut them up, but my new years resolution was to use as much as my stash as i can before buying more!! The flowers were a free gift in one of the latest craft magazines, im sorry the name has blanked from my mind just now. The image was coloured with my SU brush markers.

Well another busy day ahead, we have to take down the tree and decorations today, its a job i absolutely hate, especially as a massive clear up has to follow!! i need to clean all the conservatory windows (hate it!!!) and then wash all the curtains and nets, as if i don't have enough washing already!! Of course i will have the satisfaction of it all being done, eventually, whenever that might be!!! So no crafting for me today, or blog hopping, sorry ladies, i will get round to visit you just as soon as i can.

Thank you for taking the time to pass by, enjoy your weekend. Hugs Linda x
