Over on Bubbly Scrumptious Caroline has put up for grabs some amazing challenge candy HERE You really must have a go at this months challenge and you get a double chance of winning if you enter next months too.

I have made a stand up recipe holder for my niece. She wants to write her recipes on record cards so I've made up a holder for them so she can just flip to the recipe she wants. The whole thing stands up so she can follow her instructions with ease.

Hopefully more creative stuff soon.....I have some thank you cards to make!!!

Welcome to Bacary

It was very exciting in my household yesterday as we had another new arrival. Let me present to you.....Bacary. A massive thank you to Kaz I have always wanted one of her monkees and this little fella is just the best.

Well he leapt up out of the box when I opened it and just look at his gorgeous face.

He was hungry when he arrived and he spotted my pineapple straight away.

Still peckish.....the melon wasn't safe either!

But I had to draw the line at Sanya training treats.

Then the big introduction to the other little fella in our lives. At first Sanya wasn't too interested.

Then he did actually sit up and take notice.

The first touch......awwwwww.

Soon they were best buddies and Bacary got to sit on Sanya's back.

Sanya even let him play with his toys.

And swing in his crate.

Before Bacary went out to play in the tree house.

Birthday card for a dear friend

Not blogged in an age....I have been so busy since FIL passed away and the arrival of our puppy Sanya that I've hardly done any crafting.

All to change soonish hopefully *wink*

Anyway, I did make a card for Gez, a dear friend on the Bubbly Funk forum.

Here it is:

Hopefully more soonish.

Bits and Bobs

As usual, lots of stuff going on and no time to blog. My posts seem to get shorter and shorter and fewer between LOL but hey ho. I haven't even had time to blog hop myself this week and I love seeing what everyone else has been up to.....tut tut.

Anyways, here's a selection of stuff I've been up to over the last few weeks:

A birthday card for my mum:

My Bubbly's retreat book.....not long now lovelies.

A present for my mum - a hanging notepad holder.

That's it for now....I think....more when I get the energy to do it ha ha!!

Birthday Card

Been busy doing.....well.....not sure really but too busy to blog obviously!! It was Tony's birthday recently and, as always, male cards are a bit of a challenge.

I could have easily have added a great big flower on the top corner of this card but I somehow don't think it would have made it very masculine ha ha!

Use of corregated card and blues and browns compensated for the rather slushy heart that I just had to add!!

More soon hopefully x

HOME wall hanging

Another instalment for the gorgeous Bubbly Funk April kit (available 1st April)....don't miss it, it's going to fly off the shelves.

I decided to make this wall hanging and I'm actually really pleased with it. It's hanging on my living room wall at the mo.

I've actually done a layout!!

Totally inspired by Irene Tan and the super gorgeous Bubbly Funk April kit (due out on sale on 1st April so don't miss it) I just had to do a layout. This will also double up as my Bubbly Funk retreat class thingy if we get time to do it. Personally I think I will be too busy chattering to do any crafting.

More soon peeps xx

Ella's book

Well I've finished Ella's little book and box ready for my sister Sue to give to her daughter Vicki for Mothers Day next weekend. It's been dispatched off to our joint contact....our mum ha ha so I didn't have to risk posting it.

The photos have been blurred as we don't want Ella's photos pinched for any awful sites that frequent the internet but you get the idea of the book anyway.

I have to say HUGE thank you to Janice as she did an amazing job of doing the little monthly tags you can see on the pages.....thanks so much hun.
