Pollycraft Challenge #82...

Good Morning...
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.  We had a relaxing one apart from a night out on Saturday for my mum's birthday so I've managed to get caught up a few things.

It's time for a new challenge over at Pollycraft and the theme chosen by our lovely Joanne is:-
''Three Circles''
The sponsor this week is Quixotic Paperie and one lucky winner will receive a gorgeous 6x6 Prima Pad

I have used 'Kiki Hunny Bunny' & 'Some Bunny Special' Sentiment from Pollycraft together with 'Animal Antics' 8x8 papers which are available in my store together with the mini heart and Colour Me buttons.  The seam binding was from a lovely friend for my birthday.

CES Challenges #25 - Flowers & Flutterby's... POST HI-JACKED!!!!

It's Tyson here....I've had to hi-jack this post as it seems my mummy has forgotten me this week and not shared my antics with my furry pals over at Crafting Buddies.  I know she has been busy with hospital visits to adorable little Zach so I thought I would save her a few minutes. 
So you ask what have I been up to this week...well I continue to try and get the kitties to play but they have none of it....sit around all day near the radiator and sleep, they miss out on loads of fun!!
I've been working hard this week too so it's not all play....I work as security in the Wood-Britton household and make sure no aliens come to get us in the night.  I sit half in and half out at the window and do scheduled patrols.  Here I am at work...I do have a uniform but it's in the wash so I will have to share that with you another time!!
Luv Tyson xxx

Good Morning...
Yeh it's the weekend but looks like a miserable one weather wise, wet through here and don't think the rain stopped all night.  It's my mum's birthday today so I think we will venture out on a little shopping trip for some retail therapy.
My great nephew Zach who was born on Tuesday is still in hospital, poor little man had a few troubles with his breathing and wouldn't feed...he's now got an infection.  Fingers crossed his results come back clear after the antibiotics and he may be able to come home tomorrow.  I've not even seen him yet...well apart from a photo.

Right onto the new challenge over at CES Challenges which is:-

''Flowers & Flutterby's''

One lucky winner has the choice of 5 packs of charms from Crafty Emma's Store.

I have used a Helz Cuppleditch stamp...Parker together with Dovecraft Sugar & Spice papers.  They are available in my store along with Promarkers, various flowers and Prima gems.
1 - Little Red Wagon / Animals
2 - The Pixie Cottage / Sketch and-or Something Cute

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Teddies, Flowers & My Crafting Buddy....

Good Morning...
I hope you all had a lovely valentines day.  Me and my OH exchanged cards but don't tend to bother with all the hype of it.  The card was typical of Steve's humour, the sentiment nuts are yours & I don't just say that to anyone!!! Lol
 It's my oldest nieces 21st birthday today so we''ll be celebrating over the weekend and I''ll be having a belated birthday drink.  I was full of cold last weekend so didn't fancy much celebrating when it was mine last week. 

Anyway onto my cards which I made for an order....first up is one using an image from Teddy Bo and Kaisercraft papers.  The buttons, Tea House brads and pearls are all available in my store.
1 - Crafty Sentiment / Valentines, Love
2 - Crafty Ann / Love Is All Around
3 - Crafty Catz / Valentines, Love
4 - One Stop Crafts / Love
5 - Totally Gorjuss / Love


And a very different style of image for me from Imag-e-nation and again Kaisercraft papers.  Again the pearls and ribbon are from my store.
1 - Secret Crafter / A Stamper Flower
2 - One Stitch At A Time / Make It Pretty


And have you seen the new blog ''Crafting Buddies''....this is what Joanne who has set the blog up wrote:-

''Having been an avid fan of What's on your Workdesk Wednesday for some time, I have noticed how many crafters have little helpers around. With that in mind, I though it may just be nice if we were able to show these 'buddies' off on a blog designed just for

So here is my crafting buddy...well I call him my partner in crime as you can see on my sidebar.  Tyson is an 11 month old staffie which we acquired from my niece, she is always out and about so didn't get the time to give him the attention he needed.  Staffie's get so much bad press but I have to say he is the most adorable and loving dog I have ever known. 
I had him sat at the computer doing some commenting for me....I think this look says ''That's enough blogging for one day mummy now lets go play'' He, he ;-)
He had his first pooch pampering session yesterday...poor little fella was sat in a cage with heaters around him when I went to collect him from the dog groomers, he doesn't like dryers.  Wonder if that has something to do with me chasing him with the hairdryer when I do mine!! Lol
