A Brick Wall

Have you ever hit a brick wall ?
I have - metaphorically speaking that is !

No crafting.
No nothing.
No worry.
I'll be back after a good rest.

In the meantime my Blogaversary Candy Giveaway Deadline is fast approaching.Just a couple of days to go and then I will pick a winner.
Hugs to you all xxx

An Apology and a Bit of News

An apology from me today because I don't have a card to show you. The little light at the end of the long tunnel I wrote about last week went out  : (
I did manage to get to the workshop last Thursday at The Scrapbook Shop and it was good but I haven't  managed to finish the project yet so I can't show you what I made.Sorry.
Also, I have reluctantly stepped down from the Design Team at My Time To Craft Challenge . Too much is taking up my time at home and something had to 'give'. It wasn't fair on the rest of the team so with great regret and sadness I reluctantly stepped down. I am really sorry about it because I loved working with the rest of the DT and I will miss them.
Finally,I may not be crafting much but when I do, I promise to show you what I make. I will also try to visit you when I can.
Lastly,I still have my Candy up for grabs until the 30th June so if you would like to win it please click on the link in the side bar and follow the rules.( PLUS If I get 50 followers I will add more goodies to the Candy)
That's it folks but I hope to see you again soon. Hugs x

Hearts for Daddy

Good Morning Peeps xxx  How are you today ? I think I am feeling a little less stressed.I might be actually seeing a light,albeit a tiny light,at the end of a very long tunnel. Hubby is getting better,I have had a bit of time with my sister and she is going back to Italy tomorrow and I have booked myself a place on a workshop at my favourite craft shop (The Scrapbook Shop) for a bit of 'me time'. Hopefully I will be able to show you what I make later.

As for today, it is time for another Challenge at My Time To Craft Challenge and this week we would love to see your creations that include an EXTRA IMAGE (use more than one image). Here is my little effort which you may think looks familiar.

Some of you will remember the Heart Bunting I made for my Hubby's Birthday,well I used the same papers to make this little card and the hanging mobile hearts with the addition of some Craft card.

Now it is your turn to show us your gorgeous creations at My Time To Craft Challenge and what about joining us on the Design Team - you have until 20th June to put your name down on Mr Linky Thingy - go on you know you want to join the BESTEST DT EVER !
PS.Sorry about the poor quality photos

A boost

Stunned and gob-smacked to have been picked by Ann on the DT at The Paper Players
with this little offering as one of their A Cut Above :
Ann said this about my card :
Who can resist a cute, scruffy face? Not I! And for this reason I selected this adorable card by Maria. Maria used a perfect color palette and executed a simple design to place the focus where it should be...right smack dab on what has to be one of the cutest doggy stamps I have ever seen! To further accent the image, she printed off a customized sentiment and designed and cut out the bones! This is a perfect example of whimsy done right! And now I am off to the cupboard to fetch those Boxer Twins a treat or two! Congrats, Maria, for being my choice for A Cut Above!

It is so uplifting  when something like this happens x Thank you Ann and everyone who came and visited me because of this little card. x

Panic is setting in !!

Morning All xxx
I think everything has caught up with me and I need to step back and review what is going on in my life, so with that in mind I am going to take a bit of a break. I am NOT going to stop crafting,nor am I going to stop visiting your blogs to see your wonderful work but I am going to step back a bit before panic sets in.
As well as coping with my Hubby's illness and all that that entailed,he has many appointments including a twice a week/8 week Rehab Programme at the hospital which starts today and on top of that my sister is coming to stay with us this week. She lives in Italy with her Italian husband and I haven't seen her for 4 years so we are very excited about her coming over and we have lots of visits to do as well as lots of catching up.
I will be back tomorrow to tell you about the challenge at My Time to Craft Challenge and I may get the chance to show the odd card I made a while ago but for now I just wanted to say I'm here and you are not forgotten !
See ya later alligator xxx 

PS.Don't forget I have Candy on offer x
