You know crafters are their own worst critics don’t you? we spot all the little flaws when actually it makes the card unique.
Well I can honestly say that I love this card.
I love the Memory Box die cut corners, I love the Bo Bunny paper.
I love the black striped satin ribbon from Ribbon Carousel
I just love this card.

I think this could be the next big thing in crafting, spreading the beauty and customisable at it’s best.
So what is this?

Well seeming at though we have had a massive downpour all day I needed something to cheer me up, I even stooped so low to put on the heating, well that was until Chris informed me that I was melting his skin with the heat.
Grandson Jack has just had another holiday and Granda Chris gave him some pennies to buy an inflatable for the pool.
I could seriously kiss his face off. This is him was his Mam Lauren (daughter)

When my two were little we always made a big thing of a bedtime story, they used to get quite excited about it. My Mam when babysitting would spend hours reading a bedtime story and sometimes stories to the girls and we were never quite sure who out of the three of them enjoyed it most, I expect it was my Mam.
However my husband Chris did scar the girls for life when a kind Auntie bought them the Teddy Bears Picnic, it was a book that the song was made into the story with matching pictures to the song verse, he soon realised that he could sing it to them quicker than reading the story so whenever he had to put them to bed that was the book he reached for, whether they liked it or not. They still t this day cringe if they hear the song.
Isn’t she a sweetie?
My Nanna told me the most amazing stories, all made up but the way she told them had you imagining that you were there right in the middle of it all, I think she should have wrote a book and I reckon it would have been on the best sellers shelf.

Some things in life just tickle you don’t they? I love the way my eldest daughter can make me laugh so much, we laugh so much together that at times I feel that I can’t breath.
What tickles you?
Coloured with Copic markers and prisma pencils and the frame is made up with the Memory Box Border Die Catalina Border. The edges have been blended with a brilliance ink pad and a Tim Holtz Blending tool.
Hope it tickles you.

This Months theme for the Blog Hop is SCHOOL and I am our host and this is where the blog hop begins.
I couldn’t resist using To School from Mo’s Digital Pencil for my card as they totally make me giggle there is a few in the range and I used one of the girls and one of the boys and merged them together.
They look such happy souls don’t they?
Next up is the very talented Gretha and she will have something amazing to show you.

I know, I know it’s cringable but it’s on it’s way, Christmas, the big C word, it should be a time to rejoice and instead we run around like headless chickens trying to buy as many gifts as possible for our loved ones.
Well this year I’m ahead, I already have the two main gifts for both Daughters.
Such a sweet character to colour, I printed 1 extra Henry so that I could layer him up to make him pop.
I’m back from seeing the consultant and the MRI scan has been ordered and more paid meds advised and he said it is likely that an operation is needed eeeek!
When I heard that a crafty friend was to shave all of her hair off to help cancer victims because her own Mum was loosing hers through her cancer treatment my thought was just how brave she is.
Dawn Lancaster has a Just Giving Charity page where you can donate and make a difference no matter how large or small the donation.
Here are the pictures from Dawn on her head shaving day.
It doesn’t stop here though, Dawn is also running two challenges at the moment to try to raise funds the first is on her blog Dawn's Crafting the second is on The Crafty Pad Challenge blog both challenges have the same theme Breast Cancer Awareness/Think pink.
Although they have the same theme, they are separate challenges with great sponsor prizes up for grabs.
If you think you could help her raise awareness or give a little something please visit her Just Giving page here

Well as may have guessed I’m still having good days and bad with this wreck of a back of mine. Chris has been wonderful, I get a massage each morning with Voltarol which helps immensely.
I seem to be getting lots of pain down the fronts of my legs too like a constant ache, but rubbing seems to help.
Good news is I see my Rheumatologist tomorrow so hopefully I will get a light at the end of a very dark tunnel.
La Pashe has a new release coming which will blow you away, stunning is the word that comes to mind so I’ll get all of the girls to do some sneak peeks real soon.

Tonight we had a Chinese meal - beef chow mien
I had a nectarine
3 Ryvita with seeds
Halved plum tomatoes
Fat free cottage cheese
Wafer thin chicken
Home made chilli con carne
Use the best steak mince and dry fry or use vegetarian mince
Do not add any fat to the pan, there is no need.
I have to admit a cheat here as I use a homepride jar as well as tinned chopped tomatoes, onion and mushrooms to fill it out.
It serves 3 or 4 but I freeze what's left for the following week.
Boiled rice to finish.
No snacks today.
