ooh la la!

Hello,  here is a card I've just made for my eldest niece, she's mad and always has a giggle so I'm hoping she will have like this!  I used a Pink Petticoat image and I saw a similar card on their site but this is my version of it; it's the first time I have done lacing and Im quite pleased with how it has turned out.  Sorry that the colour look's quite flat on the photo, IRL it's a really lovely RAF blue which actually is the result of my printing black and white papers but the black running out mid print!  Hence, a new shade for the lovely PP papers of RAF blue! lol

Today Mr Postie brought me the surprise candy from Fiona all the way from Austria!  It was such a welcome surprise and I cannot wait to have a play with it asap!  Thank You very much Fiona!  

I received 6 gorgeous double sided thick patterned papers, 2 PM's (Cinnamon & Satin), 2 sets of beautiful pink button brads, a great set of Sakura Glaze pens, A Lily of the Valley 'Birds & Branches' stamp, a hot pink Happy Birthday organza ribbon and lots of beautiful pink blooms plus a lovely card made for me by Fiona!  There is just nothing nicer than receiving a beautiful hand made card by another cardmaker!

Next is a photo of my mad girls taken on Saturday night!  Laura - wearing the witch mask opened the door to all of the 'trick or treaters' with this mask on and all of the little kiddies were dressed up and had their Mums waiting for them at the end of the drive.  One little boy, who must have been only 3 was just about to put his hand in the sweetie dish when he looked up and saw Laura's mask!  Well, he froze and shrieked 'whats that?'  I quickly had to pull her mask up to show him that she wasn't really a witch but he never took his eyes off her even when he walked backwards down the drive!  He did manage to grab a sweetie though so that was ok but I nearly needed my inhaler after shutting the door and laughing so much!  That poor little mite!

Just to add, the cobwebs and rats weren't as a result of my lack of housework!

Steve has his operation Thursday so I doubt that I will be able to flit between blogs as much as I'd like so I must excuse myself in advance.  In truth Ive not been feeling like myself of late and havent been online much but hopefully things will soon improve and I will be back to 'normal' soon.  Meanwhile, happy crafting everyone and I look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations even if Im not adding any of my own!

Thanks for looking in
