Exciting News!

Oh dear it appears to have been a really long time since I blogged - oops.  To be fair I have had an excuse!!  My exciting news is that Nikky Hall from Polka Doodles asked me to be a sample maker for her new templates!  And very pleased I was too.  So that was all a bit of a whirlwind as she sent me eight templates to make cards for her upcoming show at Harrogate on 11th and 12th September (some of which are currently on display at  I have had so much fun playing with the templates and coming up with alternative desgins - so thanks to Nikky for giving me the opportunity :)

My other exciting news is that I got offered a job at my local Paper Mill Shop.  Not sure if its a good idea as I think I will have my money spent before I earn it.  I think I am going to be in heaven working in a craft shop :) I start there soon and really am very excited about it.

 I have two apologies to make.  One to Debbie and the other to Teri Louise.  These 2 lovely ladies were kind enough to award me lovely blog awards and as yet I have done nothing with them.  Sorry!!  I am currently perusing other blogs to pass on the compliment you kindly gave me and hope to post soon.  The school holidays have also curtailed my blogging and crafting acitvities, but now that the schools are back I hope to rectify this.

On the card front the only one I have made (other than the 10 cards for Polka Doodles) is this one:

The stamps are from PaperArtsy and have been sitting in my cupboard waiting to be used!  Quite pleased with the results but maybe over did the background slightly!  I really love the flowers and they come with a handy die to match!! :)

Well that's about it for now.  Hope to get back into the swing of things soon and get those blog awards sorted.  Take care Vxx
