I've been having an annoying week with my internet connection this week as it's been playing me up so I've not been able to stay on line long enough to post anything.

It seems a little better today so I'm going to strike while the iron's hot and the first thing I have to do is post about This Thursday's challenge this week which should have been up last week.

Here are my entries - we received some lovely ribbons from Ribbon Oasis and mine were all in purple colours.

This is going to be my last Design Team submission for This Thursday challenge as I have had to withdraw due to other committments. I wish Tracey and Suzy and whoever joins up lots of success and I've had great fun over the last few weeks creating my samples and trying new things.

I haven't done many challenges lately so here are a few for today.

My Time to Craft and ATC

The challenge over at My Time to Craft this week is to use Red Black and White on your projects.

Here's mine - I used SU's Mixed Bouquet two step stampin set.

My ATC for Think Monday Think ATC is these fabulous Tiger Eyes. I just adore this stamp and love to use it whenever I get the chance. Its perfect for this challenge.

Wylde Woman Award

I've been awarded this fabulous award. This was started by Tammy with the purpose of sending love and acknowledgement to women who brighten your day, teach you new things and live their lives fully with generosity and joy.

Most of the ladies I would like to give this award to have already received it - Julie, Rosie, Tracey. So ladies just know that you've received it twice! LOL

I would also love to give this award to Carol - you'll find her blog HERE - I find her blog a source of inspiration, not only in the crafting sense, but I find going there soothes me - she has introduced me to new music I would not have discovered otherwise, and I love seeing her nature photographs. Thanks Carol!


I'm back after the Newbury show where I and four of my fellow Stampin Up demonstrators got together to promote Stampin Up. We met lots of you lovely stampers and I hope you've all been enjoying playing with the goodies you got at the show. I, unfortunately, did not have time to go around any of the exhibitors - so I couldn't spend any more money!! LOL!!!

If you check out my Stampin Up blog HERE you'll find I'm doing a special offer for August and Stampin Up have a special on their gorgeous designer papers. Here's a sample of the papers - I cut them up into inchies and put them on the card - these are the green colours but check out my blog for the total range.

Now, what else - oh yes - This Thursday Challenge - we have a new one up and running this week which is Wings. We received some gorgeous rubber stamps from Jenny at The Stamp Connection and if you are this week's lucky winner you can win them together with Kling On.

Here are my projects for this week:
