Busy Day and Award

Hello to you all.  Hope you are enjoying your Bank Holiday Weekend so far.
I spent a few hours baking yesterday so no cards to share with you again.
My brother and nephew are visiting for the weekend so I thought I would do some baking for them.  Its ages since they came to stay. I saw them very briefly in April when I visited them while I was working down in Devon.
So the treats I made are Cheese Scones, Chocolate Chip Cookies & Flapjack.  Lets hope they are feeling hungry!!

So onto my Award and the seven people I am passing this onto are

Ann- Marie

It is incredibly hard just to pick out 7 but these are the ones I have picked but there are so many fantastic and inspiring blogs that think everyone should have an award :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

My Very First Award

I can't believe it the lovely  Elaine has left me an award.  This is such a great thing for me to receive as my week has started off being pretty rubbish really so a huge Thank You to Elaine for cheering me up with this.
As its the first one you will have to bear with me but promise I will be back to pass on to 7 people.

Penny Black Challenge Week 115

Well Hello everyone, it has been a while since I have managed to come and join in the fun.
Work is absolutely crazy at the moment, working stupidly long hours with not much time for me.  I think if I write another list of things to do "today" I might just go mad!!   So I hear you cry why are you making cards if you have so much to do?..........I just had to have a break and so I thought entering a challenge or two could just be what I need.
So I have put together very quickly I hasten to add a card for the challenge over at Penny Black which this week is a sketch.

For my card I used

A white card blank (I even used a pre made card blank to speed up the proces!!!) 5" square.
Betsy Blue image from Penny Black coloured with Promarkers and Copics.  The balloons have been glazed with Glossy Accents.
The background paper is My Minds Eye and the corners punched with MS punch.
Flowers are from my stash with someflower brads for the centres.
The buttons are also from my stash.

I am entering this card into the Penny Black Challenge and the Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge

Thanks for looking.
Hope you are all ok and I will try and catch up with what you have all been creating soon.

Just Because......

I haven't got any creations to share with you but I have got some news........
We (Mike and I) are trying to get a business started selling jewellery and gifts.  
We have both decided that we want to spend our time doing something other than our current jobs although it won't be too much different for Mike except all his hard work and effort will be for us rather than someone elses benefit.   We have a plan that we are working towards and one of the first steps is to get some items on a blog to give people the opportunity to see what we have on offer.
Mike has put the first range of jewellery on there today so please feel free to pop over and have a look.   Any comments would be appreciated too.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
