Grab-a-Doodle downloads and more Awards/Katy's blog candy

Finally an update on my blog. Its been a busy few days. We spent the weekend turning my old craft room into a bedroom for my son. Then we turned his old bedroom into a bedroom for Ben who had been sharing a room with his sister! Finally last night everyone was in their own room, and we can give a sigh of relief. I can now do some serious cleaning, although i am leaving the real blitzing until the weekend! As you all know im not the most domesticated person in the world, can always think of better things to do , like doing ten rounds with Frank Bruno!!! Domestic goddess im not, so if there are any volunteers out there, please feel free to blitz my house at your convenience!!

Its a gorgeous sunny day, and doesn't it make you feel so good??! I have been out and about this morning and now desperate to get down to some crafting. This morning i visited the craft shop i used to work in, oh my goodness, Anna has some more fabulous templates coming out soon, and they are going to be aired on QVC, not sure of the dates yet, but will keep you updated on that.

These cards i made over the weekend, using the fabulous Grab-a-doodle downloads, from the ever talented Sally-Ann. I think these images are just gorgeous and even better, i didn't even have to colour them in.

This little kitty is so cute, and with a few papers, a quick and easy card!

The cupcakes are definitely one of my favourite downloads. I have stickled the heart and icing although its not clear from this photo.

and finally this gorgeous image for any little boy in your life!

I can not thank you all enough for the wonderful awards you have passed on to me. Unfortunately i have not had time to pick them all up. I will get round to it later this week.

This award was passed on to me, by the ever talented Bev over at All Things I love. I am sure you are all familiar with Bevs gorgeous work, and if you're not, go take a look for yourself. You are sure to find lots of inspiration there. Thank you Bev, I can not believe you would think to pass this on to little old me!

Then this award is from the lovely Ann if you havnt seen her work please go over and take a look her work is truly stunning and i love visiting her blog.

Finally the gorgeous Katy has some fabulous blog candy up for grabs take a look at this. For a chance to win follow this link here .

Well ladies thats it from me for now, will be back later in the week with more quick cards. Hugs Linda x
