Take care all you gorgeous girlies, hope you're all enjoying the weekend................oh and btw I'm not telling anyone when Tina is coming next time so there can't be any jinxing lol

I am hoping that Tina can find her and bring her tomorrow as she is coming for the day (hmmmm a crafty day with a friend woohooo) Tina is bringing her stamps and bits and bobs for the cuttlebug so I am hoping playing with someone else's stash will help inspire me.
I got a lovely package this morning with the new ribbons for the Crafty Ribbons challenge, they are lush I have been stroking them all morning lol Gorgeous colours too, yummy springy green and orange and yellow :o)
Well girlies I better go and at least make a pass at tidying up (can't let Tina see what a terrible housekeeper I am lol) Have a happy day all, halfway to the weekend now girlies :o)

Lily was delighted to have had a family cycle, it was lovely to see her so happy! We are very lucky to have a cycle path next to the road between our village and the next one, so we will be building up to that (3 miles each way!!!)
Of course it was lovely at the time but sadly now my backside is wishing it had never been born and OMG the pain in my thighs!!! shows how unfit I am of course (oh the shame lol) Now it's Tuesday I can say I have finally recovered lmao
I am soooo behind this week, I haven't even had time to make my dt cards (naughty Amanda!!) there's just so much going on just now............stuff on every night, kids keeping me busy....yada yada yada! I will catch up I hope either that or meet myself coming back lol Hope all you gorgeous girlies in bloggy land are enjoying St Paddy's day :o)

so without further adoooooo....................the winner is.....................................Enfys!!!!!
Now onto a card!! I think I am just squeezing in at the death to enter this card for the Sugar Bowl Challenge, the challenge this fortnight was to make a Christmas card, now I don't actually have any Xmas Sugar Nellies but I thought that Luvvie could be Christmassy with some festive colour :o) The papers are by Papermania, Luvvie is coloured with the PMs and paper pieced, ribbons from stash, sentiment is an old one and I have no idea where its from. And yep you've guessed it there's that border punch again!! And OMG surely not........is that a white space on the card?? it was hard but the papers stand out better against the white rather than another layer!
Well nighty night girlies, think I am heading off to bed with my book :o)

The papers are from the new packs I got yesterday by Dovecraft, and lo and behold the border punch again (get used to it I think it's here to stay lmao). Setiment stamp is Lili of the Valley cut with new label nestie.

This card uses the sketch from Truly Scrumptious, the papers were free in a magazine, as before the ribbons are all from Crafty Ribbons. The doily was in my drawer and the cupcake is made with cardstock, the pink icing piece has beads sewn on.
And this last card was just one that came to me in the middle of the night lol I remembered that had the pattern for a stitched cupcake, so I did the icing on its own and cut it out. There is a patterned paper which doesn't really show up in the pic, it was free in a magazine as well lol
I am of to the SECC tomorrow to the craft fair and I am sooo looking forward to it!! I rarely get any time to myself so a whole day is like a holiday to me :o) Also the prospect of buying lots of craft stash is very welcome!!! The Crafty Ribbons people are at the show so I'm taking my cards to hand in to them there :o)

The letters were drawn freehand and edged with black pen to make them stand out against each other, the greeting is a peel off.
