dont you just love a bargain...


Good morning everyone I hope your all well and having a fantastic week...thank you all so so much for all your birthday wishes and sympathy...it wasn't fair though was it lol...omg before anything else did all you people from the UK see Corrie last night?, ok hands up who blubbed like a baby...yep me too...what a soppy lot we are aren't we, it was so so sad and my tears were for poor little Roy aaaaaahhhhhh bless him...I had a lovely dinner with all my family last night and got loads of lovely little presents, our Daughter is the best at buying little bits and pieces you had forgotten you even wanted...I mentioned before Christmas I needed  a new purse and yep there is was alongside, face goodies, jewellery and chocolates...I always look forward to any goodies from her...right now at long last a card, I know shock horror a real live card...not the best colouring but at least I managed to make one...this beautiful stamp is one of my prizes for my mega candy and there's a few other Sugar Nellie stamps too...I will put a photo on of the Sugar Nellie prize and if you haven't joined in my candy yet just click on the picture in the sidebar theres a load of lush prizes...this beauty is from Sugar Nellies Leanne Ellis range and is called If Only...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and the fantastically coloured papers are from the Basic Grey Fresh Cut 6" x 6" Paper Pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...it has such lovely fresh spring colours in it...now don't we all love a bargain or two this huge flower on my card is actually a hair ornament from a pack of two I bought from Sainsbury's for the vast amount of £1 in their sale...Phil's well used to me by now and knew exactly what I wanted them for so didn't even ask lol...I finished my card with a few pearls, a lush white organza ribbon and a key hole from Tim Holtz...I made the sketch up as I went along and am entering it for the Addicted to Stamps Challenge, Brown Sugar Challenge and Craftitude challenge too...I'm going to spend today trying to get my colouring mojo back so fingers crossed a lot of hours locked in my craft room will do the trick or I might have to start taking lessons lol...whatever your up to today have a good one and don't forget to join in my candy and spread the word so everyone gets a chance
