Thank You

Here's a card I've made for a lovely lady, who always gives me a lift to a regular craft day I go to. Tomorrow is another one of these days and again Sue is giving me a lift. She's a sweetheart and I've make this card (yes card!) for her to say 'ta'

I'm entering it into the 'try it on tuesday' challenge blog.

A Hat for All

Here's my piece for The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge. I love this hat that I got from Creavil, it's so fab and very handy for the large size rubberstamps from The Octopode Factory.

Girls Girls Girls

whether it's Elvis, Motley Crue or Cyndi Lauper, girls love to have fun. Don't know about fun but I've been very naughty this week and I haven't had a chance to make anything for SPA but I have had time to make a b.i.g tag for THe Octopode Factory challenge blog. It features one of the Nowhere Girls, Grace ~ with her pet bunny rabbit. (Used my new distress stains on this! loving em!)
