WOO HOO! It's Blog Candy time!!!

I am giving away one of the FANTASTIC Lizzie Anne Designs stamp sets and the lucky winner gets to CHOOSE which set they would like from my store! You get to pick!!!! You can have a look at what I have here.

The only 'rule' I have is when you leave your name please also leave your favourite colour co ordinations too. I have Stampin Up markers and have recently invested in the Copic Ciao sets so either leave their names or their numbers - I can't wait to see what you favourites are.

I swear I am slightly colour blind - I am NO good at coordinating colours at all! I need your help :)

Thank you in advance and GOOD LUCK!

I will be drawing the lucky name on Valentine's Day

CHA fun!

Well, we worked hard and we played hard!Here I am with Tricia (left) from Lizzie Anne Designs outside CHA. The show was much smaller this year but we still managed to find some cute new items for our stores. The Beach photo was taken the morning we were leaving to go back home. That's Meridith from Lizzie Anne Designs on the left :) It was such a nice warm day it would have been criminal NOT to walk along this beautiful beach!

There was a lot of hustle and bustle when Paris Hilton entered the convention - yes I said Paris Hilton!

I did get to see Jane Seymour and she is SO beautiful! My husband bought me her open heart necklace for Christmas.

She was a little more creative than Paris - she painted while she was at the show and it was amazing to see. She is breathlessly beautiful!

We missed you Joslyn!

All in all we got a lot done and had a lot of fun doing it. I can't think of 2 nicer ladies to spend 4 days in the sun with.

I also have the new Extra Giga punches just delivered which I am trying to get into my store before I leave! So much to do so little time!

Heartfelt Birthday

Oh how I love buttons! These are Wild Berry by Bo Bunny. They have co-ordinating brads and scrummy flowers too! I'm trying to stick with my new 'simple' theme but I won't lie - it's hard!!!

I coloured in using my Copics. The stamps are Lizzie Anne Designs L'amour and Happy Birthday and the Ink is Brilliance Graphite black - it's a shimmery FAST DRYING ink - LOVE it! The ribbon is Creative impressions. The pink card is part of a card and envelope kit - it makes things SO much easier having it to hand.

Happy Monday! HUGS!

In the Hula mood!

I apologise for not making cards sooner but I am SUCH a nice person that I lent my good friend Dawn all my Lizzie Anne stamps while I was away and with all the snow and flooding we have had I have only just got them back :)
So for Christmas we bought my 7 & 9 year old girls a Wii - and yes I am LOVING it! I especially like the Wii Fit and I am Hula Hooping ALL the time! In fact on Monday my friend Laurie came over and we played like little kids and then yesterday I had Tanya and Dawn (with my stamps ;)) come over and we all played and had fun! I'm thinking we should make this a weekly thing! My abs are going to be rock hard by next month! Who'd have thought that keeping in shape could be so much fun!
This beauty is from Lizzie Anne's Garden Isle set, the bling - me and my big ideas. My New Years resolution is to 'keep things simple' this card to me is as simple as it gets.
I hope you like it :D

After my whirlwind adventures I am now home. 3 months in Beijing was a positive experience - The Great Wall was more than Great! It was truly breathtaking. We got home at the beginning of December and then 2 weeks later we headed to Florida to meet up with family for Christmas - boy did we have fun!

I am home now and getting back into the swing of things, my store is now back online and I am working on making some cards to show on my blog :) Please keep checking back.

I hope you are having a fantastic Monday. All great weeks start with a fantastic Monday ;)
