Pop up!...

Hi lovelies, well its saturday so its time for a new challenge over at Magnolia down under, and this week the theme is to create a pop up card, or pop up on your card. Now this challenge well and truly had me stressing as its something I have never made and believe me when I say there were a few tears and tantrums while making it, but I got there in the end.
My lovely teamie Camilla has made a wonderful tutorial to help you to make one of these fabby cards, and her own card is just stunning!
So anyway here is my card, get a cuppa and get settled as its a bit picture heavy!

Autumn Scene at tildas Town

Afternoon lovelies, hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend? Hope its dry, I am seriously getting fed up with rain! 

My plan of getting myself back into a routine after Alex started at school hasn't gone quite to plan....

Maya is now my only child at home and is now demanding I play with her all the time! she is missing her brother it seems and I haven't been able to do as much as I would like, I cant even go to the loo without her!! I hope this is just a temporary thing and she settles down soon. I don't mind playing with her, in fact I love it being just me and her but when I have other things to do its not so great.

Wish me luck....

Ok let's get onto this weeks challenge over at Tilda's Town, which is for AUTUMN SCENE.

I have chosen to mask two stamps together to make my scene, Tilda with carrots from the turning leaves collection and an older stamp Old Oak from the summer and sea collection.

Something Old, Something new...

Hi lovelies, back again, this post is scheduled as by now I should be on my way to Glasgow with Meghan to do some shopping for hubbies birthday, which is on Wednesday.
It is time for a new challenge over at Dream Valley, and its a bit of a sad day for me as this is my last DT card for the team as I have decided to leave the team. I have loved every minute of being a part of this great DT they are all such lovely ladies and I am going to miss them all. I want to say a huge thank you to Melly, my dt leader, she is one of the loveliest and sweetest people I have 'met', so thank you sweetie xxx

The new challenge is something old, something new.
I have used a new image from Mo Manning called  Odette, she is soooo cute, and my something old is the pale pink tulle fabric that is around the image. Its kinda hard to see in the photos but you can just make it out.
