Late Allsorts...again

I blame being able to access my emails on my mobile phone!! Now that I can get my emails and facebook on my phone I don't have to turn the pc on that often and I get behind with everything else lol

Anyway this week at Allsorts there is a fabulous bravelet with butterflies on as inspiration. I decided to go with one of my all time favourite parchment patterns :o) I am having a bit of difficulty doing parch work these days and today typing isn't so hot lol Lifting Alfie who is now weighing a whopping 16lb 30z has given me tendonitis in my left wrist so am having to wear a splint. As I mainly use my left hand I think I may be giving up parching for a while :o(
Well ladies I hope you are having a great week, don't know where the weeks are flying to here lol

Oh dear I am like a headless chicken this week and I am only just getting round to posting my card for this week's Allsorts challenge. The challenge was set by Fleur and she wants you to use stitching this week, real or faux :o) Our sponsor this week is Tracey from Fred She Said who designs some really beautiful digi images. I first found fred She Said through a craft forum about 3 years ago and have used the snowflake medallion lots of times as well as a few of the other doodle dallions. Tracey is offering a $20 gift certificate to spend in her lovely store so please join us and see if you can win it, you won't regret it :o)

One of my old cards made with the snowflake medallion, they come ready coloured and are just fabulous to work with

Race For Life

This is my gorgeous cousin, Joanne, who sadly died a few weeks ago from Ovarian Cancer. She had been fighting it for about 3 years. For years I have been saying I would do the Race for Life and this year I am putting my trainers where my mouth is and have signed up for it! I am doing the Inverness one on Sunday 9 May.

If anyone would like to sponsor me for this fabulous cause my sponsorship page is here

Wish me luck girls, to say I am not sporty is a bit of an understatement!!

Petals and Pearls for Allsorts

This week we are looking for Petals and Pearls and I made this card for hubby's youngest grand daughter who is Peppa Pig daft lol. As you can see she is turning 4 this week. Mind you she will be giving up the mantel as the youngest later this year as my step son Nicky and his wife are expecting their first child in September. We are all so excited as before they married last year they suffered two miscarriages.

Anyway enough rambling here is the card!!

Can't wait to see if you join in :o)

Hello strangers!!! I know I know I have been a terrible blogger haven't I??? I have been a busy mama with my wee man, he certainly keeps me going lol I also had a weekend in hospital a few weeks ago. Have been diagnosed with gall stones (yuk) and am now on a low fat diet to see how I get on. Thankfully it is working well and I haven't had any pain for almost 3 weeks.

We also had Alfie's christening a couple of weekends ago which was a lovely day. Here's a few pics......doesn't he look fab in his wee kilt lol

Lily Alfie and my nephew Cameron

Back tomorrow with my dt card
