Papertake Weekly Challenge

Look at me 2 posts in 2 days, good eh!!!! and so late too, well it was either make a card or watch Dave on Tiger Woods golf {{{AGAIN}}} :)
I have had a go at this weeks papertake challenge which is a great sketch by Dawny, I have used another image given to me by Lynsey {thank you :)} and coloured with proMarkers the papers are all HOTP and the flowers are from my stash, sorry for the wonky picture :)

Tagged and Candy

I have been tagged by Vee and Jeannette, also Jeannette has some gorgeous SU candy on offer look below :)
You have to go to the 6th folder where you keeps your pics and then pick the 6th photo, well here is mine, this is me (in the middle) with Dave's Mam, sister and niece. It was last year when they came down to visit from Leeds and it was bloomin cold, even though it looks like a nice sunny day, Bethany (niece) was sulking a bit because she couldn't have an icecream :)

I now have to pass it to 6 people, but everyone I have looked at so far has already done it so I may need to come back to that one :)

Right, now for some yummy candy from Jeannette, you have a choice of 2 sets of stamps in the pic below, all you need to do is leave a comment on her blog with which 2 you would like and leave a link on your blog, it closes on the 7th and is only open to the UK, don't forget to take a look at her gorgeous cards too :)

New Years Resolution

I have quite a few resolutions for this year and my main one is to be more organised, so I was very happy to see this on one of the blogs I follow {capture the moment}, you can find it here, it is a birthday organisation book, I have altered mine slightly because I didn't have any envelopes the right size, I also binding mine with my bind it all and added tabs so I can get to the months quickly, the flourish is from my new toy The slice, which I think you will be seeing quite a bit of this year :)

Here is the inside of the book, you can see I have used A5 envelopes, I will add all the addresses on the front of the A5 envelope so I birthdays and addresses all in the same place, all I need to do now is add the birthdays in and make some cards :)

Oh it is nice to be back, thank you for looking :)

Happy New Year and Award :)

I know I am a bit late but I think by now you are getting used to me :) well we had a lovely christmas and new year but the time has just flown :( could do with another week or two.

So I would like to wish everyone a belated Happy New Year, I can see from all of your blogs you have all had a good time and have been very busy making cards over the festive period, I still dont know how you fit it all in :) anyway my new years resolution is to blog more consistantly, so keep popping by to say "Hi"

Now I have received an award from Vicki and Denise {Thanks girls :) }

The rules are to give it to five others, who shall give it to five others.. You shall link the one you got it from, and also the ones you give it to & let them know.You also have to write down five things you are addicted to

So here goes. the 5 things I am addicted to are

  • Chocolate, I have put on a stone last year to prove it :(
  • my new toy The Slice from Making memories, you will see quite a bit of that in the new year :)
  • blog hopping and then forgetting if I have left comments
  • coke zero, it is the only thing I drink, don't like tea or coffee
  • reality TV, I know I am sad but I can not help it :)

Now I have to pass it to on, so sorry if you already have it but here goes
