I've been a really bad blogger recently, but have found I've had alot less time than I thought I would once the children broke up from school. I've hardly made any cards & in fact have done very little of anything crafty!!
So I was absolutely delighted to get this award from Karen especially when I saw the company I was in.
The rules are:
1. The winner can put the logo on her blog
2. Link the person you received your award from
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Put links of those blogs on yours
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the girls you’ve nominated
I've had a quick scout about & a few of the people I was going to nominate have already got this award so that shortened my list. I have loads of blogs set up on Google Reader but don't always get to read everything but there are some that I MUST visit when I see they've posted a new comment. They are
Katharina - I know I won't be the only one to nominate her blog as it's fab.
Nessy - She makes some fab cards & ATC's & always makes me smile when I visit her blog.
Marlene - I know she's aready been nominated but wanted to pass this on from me as well. Her cards are awesome & she's such a lovely person.
Emma - Emma doesn't only make lovely cards she also takes time to visit & leave lovely comments on my blog, I really appreciate it Emma & it's lovely having you as a friend.
Han - Again great cards & I love visiting her blog.
Natalie - More great cards & a lovely blog to spend some time.
Jules - My new friend Jules. For being a great hostess the other night & I'll be visiting her blog for lots of Stampin Up inspiration when my goodies arrive.
Diane - Who makes gorgeous cards & is such a kind person & I look forward to meeting her one day.

Challenge 21In The HouseThe challenge this week is to make a card with the theme of 'In The House', anything which can be found in the home is fine and we are looking forward to seeing what you come up with.We have a fabulous prize of 2 stamps this week to give to 1 randomly chosen winner. The stamps have been kindly donated by Katharina from Whiff of Joy Stamps.Whiff of Joy is a new online store and they have gorgeous stamps, so don't forget to pop over and have a look here.
I've used a Sarah Kay colouring book image coloured with Whispers pens. This is mounted on a tag cut from pink Bassill & run through the cuttlebug. I've used Retro Floral DP & Bassill Bling green cardstock. The flower is from Poppicraft & the beads & charm are once again from Marlene's bead shop. The bling in the middle of the flower is a Papermania jewel brad.
Tilda & Co are taking a summer holiday this week so the 'Bugs' challenge has been extended by a week. This gave me a chance to catch up with some challenges. I've found I have alot less time for card making with the children off school so used a Tilda image I had already coloured & decided to make the card using the yellow & green colour scheme. I've used Retro Floral DP & Bassill yellow & Bassill Bling green cardstock. The flower, ribbon & best wishes brad are from Poppicraft & the beads & dragon fly (the bugs part!!) charm I bought from Marlene's bead shop.
