"This weeks challenge is Snow! Anything snow related - snowmen, snowflakes, snowy scenes etc! "
As you can see I like this card today, the lovely Sue gave me the stamp for my birthday "Thanks Sue xx", the image was coloured with promarkers and the papers are all papermania, hope you like it :) . I am so behind with my blog hopping I do apologise but there are so many blogs that I visit now, if I left comments on all the cards I liked I would not have chance to make any :) but I really do visit you all and love all of your cards xx

I have no idea why I have put it on, and if you can not already tell, I am having a beat Gina up day :)
I was going to put it up for secret crafter saturday challenge which this week is "Buttons and a cute image" but I think I will make another for that instead.
I have used SU papers and an image given to me and the flowers are from my stash. Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with a better card :) and in a better mood with myself too :)
The candy closes on the 26th November at 6pm
You have until 5pm on 26th November
LOL Sue has just told me I have not linked the candy, it must have been subliminal because the less people see it the more chance I have :)
I have now linked it (drat) :)

Feeling a bit sorry for myself today, the strong rain and winds we had a few nights ago have now equated to water stains in the kitchen on the ceiling and walls and in the conservatory !!! no idea how it got in. Have had a big bust up with Dave today, bless him he does try his hardest, but we have not one bit of luck since we moved in this house 5 years ago, we have had a bird stuck behind the fire, a bee's nest, wasps in the loft, rats in the garden, the neighbours had a toilet blockage which meant they had to rip up our conservatory floor to get to the manhole !!!! apparently we have the only one in the street if anyone needs unblocking, chimney breast out, tons of electric problems OK OK I here you say, but there is more :) I won't go on though, you have been put through enough, and you only came to look at a card :)
thank you though, I think I have got it off my chest..... a bit :)

I have used another new alota stamp (I am in love with these cuties) and coloured her with ProMarkers which I bought from Wendy's shop, and Wendy was kind enough to let Dave pick them up for me from her home :) "Thank you". the papers are DCWV and the sentiment is stampabilities,
Sorry about the picture but if you live in the Midlands at the moment you will know the weather has been awful all day, the rain is still pouring as we speak

I have used my new alota stamp which I have just fell in love with, aint she the cutest little thing :) the papers are K&Co, the sentiment is not showing up too well in the picture, can not understand why, hope you are all having a good weekend xx
Oh no, I have just noticed, I have not coloured her shoes in :) oh well they look quite cute in white (or that is my excuse now) xxx

The image was given to my for my birthay and the rest of the bits are from my stash apart from my new stamps from SU, they are the Circle of Friendship stamps and I have used my new punches too,
Have a great weekend everyone xxx
Anyway, as I mentioned is my earlier post, I have joined Jule's stampers 10 club and it was my turn to be hostess and if anyone is wondering if it is worth joining then let me show you what I have for free, gratis, zilch, nowt, 0, :) all of these goodies below. I have a choice of level 2 free gift which I chose cause for celebration stamps and then I had £35.00 to spend too, thank you to my other stampers 10 group for spending so much :) I bought the hodgepodge hardware set which is stunning, the brads are gorgeous, and also a scallop punch, how good is that.
New Morgan Collection - 2 Door Cupboard number 621/1817 at £44.99, they are really chunky and so deep, you fit loads of crafty bits in. The desk I have matches too.
The shelves on top are - Beech Small Extra Deep Bookcase 610/9479 at £17.99 they are deeper than normal shelves so a lot more sturdy, they do not match exactly with the colour of the base units but I am quite picky and I can put up with them :)
Now I am waiting today for my goodies from my SU order with Jules, I have joined the stampers 10 club and it was my month to be hostess so I have loads of goodies :) all I have to do now is wait for Dave to come home, I phoned Jules yesterday to organise for Dave to fetch them today so I don't have to wait ( I am not impatient at all) and I didn't make him drive 2 hours up the motorway for them, he had to visit Leeds today anyway...honest :). Well he got them this morning at 9am so I have to wait now till 5.30pm for him to get home, so pop back later and you can see my new goodies xxx Oh and not forgetting I have a card too xxx

I used an image given to my by the lovely Jill and the papers are from the lovely Han, I really like this card. I coloured the image with my ProMarkers, I still need a lot of practice but am really loving them. Hope you likey :)
Now here is a couple of pictures to be proud of because it won't stay like this for long, my clean and tidy room :) I think I confused everyone (including myself) saying I had a new unit, well I had not put it up in my last picture hence all of the mess on the floor, so here is my new unit or shelves, I did a bit of jiggery pokery and moved one unit to the middle and then put 2 shelving units either side, I need to see everything I have because if it is out of sight it is out of mind with me

I haven't even got my "thank you" cards out yet, how useless am I :(
I also received a card from Nicola last week with some images, "Thank you Nicola, I love the card and the images" I thought I had put a post on but it was in my drafts so here it is and it is so nice to see Nicola back xx
Well if I am not back later, please all have a happy and very safe Bonfire night and don't forget the firework code. We are having some pet friendly fireworks so Ellie won't be scared :)
