Candy Winner

Hi everyone, hope you've all had a great weekend. Sorry I'm a bit late posting the candy winner but I'm still trying to get my brain working properly and I'm losing all track of the days especially with it being a bank holiday here in the UK.

I put all the names in a paper bag and got hubby to pull one out and this is the winner


If you can contact me at (at) with your email addy I'll get the voucher sorted.

Thank you all for your get well wishes and after hubby had to call the paramedics again last week and having to be taken to A&E I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that I'm finally on the road to normality!! 
On the plus side I've lost rather a lot of weight and rediscovered my waistline so will need to treat myself to some new clothes.... but on the downside I've gone completely off chocolate and still can't find Mr Mojo.

Take care and I hope you have a good week.

AWOL and a Candy Giveaway

This is a sticky post - please scroll down for newer posts 

Hi everyone. Some of you may have noticed I've been missing from blogland for a few weeks - the reason is I've been rather poorly and also had a bad reaction to some medicines. It really has drained me of all energy but I did manage a walk around the green in front of our home today.

As for crafting - well my mojo made a hasty exit at the first sign of illness and I'm not sure when it's going to reappear. I will start catching up with visiting your blogs but I hope you'll understand if it takes me a little while.

In the meantime I have a little candy giveaway of a $15 voucher for The Paper Shelter

I'll leave it open for a couple of weeks and all you have to do to be in with a chance to win is leave me a comment on this post with your name. I have comment moderator set but I will check and publish regularly.

Thanks for popping by and I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend

Hanging In There and Candy

First a reminder that there's a few days left before my candy ends so if you'd like a chance to win a $15 voucher from The Paper Shelter please read this post here

Second, I'm so sorry I'm not getting round to visit you but I'm not getting better as quickly as I thought I would, so not spending too much time on the laptop.

I have managed to make a CAS card although it did take me 3 days to put together. The sweet stamp (coloured with Promarkers) is Sylvia Zet 'Fluffy hanging in there' which is a bit how I'm feeling at the moment.

I shall enter this in the following challenges -

Passion For Promarkers challenge 'milestone birthdays'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
My Craft Creations challenge 'anything goes'
That's Crafty challenge 'stamping ground

That's it from me tonight, thanks for dropping by and for all your lovely comments. Hopefully I'll be back blogging soon and getting round to visit you.

Penguin Christmas

Hi everyone, hope your week has gone well. My inspiration and motivation is still on sick leave and I can't find Mr Mojo anywhere.... so I decided that I should try and make a card to incorporate a few challenges.

Following a sketch and themes of christmas, penguins, embossing, twine and CAS design this is what I came up with. The image is one of my (many) LOTV toppers, the card is embossed with a Die'sire petite dots folder, twine and sentiment are from my stash. You wouldn't believe how long I sat with a vacant expression on my face before I actually began to make this card !!

I shall enter it in the following challenges
Lili of the Valley Monthly challenge 'christmas in August'
Sketch Saturday challenge 'sketch'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'anything goes  for christmas'
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 'animal +/or bird'
ABC Christmas challenge 'P for penguins'
Creative Card Crew challenge 'embossing'
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'clean and simple'
Let's Craft and Create challenge 'ribbon or twine'

Thanks for popping by and if you'd like a chance to win my candy please check out the post at the top of my blog here

Mousey Frolics and a Candy Reminder

Firstly a reminder I have some candy posted at the top of my blog - just leave your name in the comments on that post - and secondly thank you for your best wishes. I really do appreciate you taking the time to leave a message and I will try and get around to you all soon.

I made a card just before I got poorly that was for the House Mouse challenge but didn't get around to posting it. This card is the total opposite of the theme for their current challenges but they also have the option of 'anything goes' so I shall enter with the option. I've also missed playing in the Snippets Playground and as I've used a snippet of pearlescent card for the die-cut swirl I shall head over for a quick visit.

I shall enter this in the following challenges ~
House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge 'theme or anything goes'
Pixie's Snippets Playground 'use snippets'
Crafty Catz challenge 'lazy days of summer'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'anything goes'
A Creative Romance challenge 'fun in the sun'
Bearly Mine challenge 'anything goes'

Right that's all from me for now, thanks for taking the time to drop by and for all your much appreciated comments. Hope you have a super week.
