It's a great friendly group even if I say so myself.

Ally Birthday Card

Well today I started to feel a little brighter so thought I would take myself out to the cabin and have an hour or two me time. Kids just wanted a bit of time on computer/xbox. We've had some lovely family time playing board games over the last few days. Yeah Mum is still the champ at Blokus (well I was today anyway)!!!
Well don't know what January is like for you guys but I have loads of family and friends with Birthdays so thought I would make a start. I can't believe where the years have gone my little (well not so little ) boy will be ten. Oh dear that only means one thing I will get a year old as well !! Quickly moving on.
For Christmas he got a electric guitar and some headphones but to be fair it's great to hear him playing (well sometimes) even if the dog hates it. So of course the card had to be done on the guitar theme. I used my Funky Hands Happy Happy Birthday CD (which is on offer right now so pop over and have a look, grab yourself a bargain) for the papers. I added a super guitar digi image from Stitchy Bear which was the lovely prize I won on the a challenge over at Allsorts blog. I just sized it down and duplicated it to make a super backing paper. The letters have been covered in glossy accents for a 3D effect and little ruffled ribbon. The image is a Rock Star from sugar nellie range which I purchased some time ago from Cloudnine at Horncastle, I just love this stamp. Coloured up with my promakers.
I'm entering it in the challenge over on:-

WOW Well after a busy day out with Ally (my little boy) at his school Christmas fair.
I have been a parent helper today and after feeling very rough this week so was pleased that I was able to make it. I'm sure all of us have had the moments in life when your heart melts, well that was me he was playing in the band and a great job they all did.
He started playing the guitar in July and wow he is doing so well
(I know I'm a little bias as he's mine but I love how far he had come).
What a perfect end to a fab day and a not so great week.
I was lucky enough to be selected in the allsorts challenge WK 132 and won a super prize, big thanks can't wait to indulge in my fab prize. Those of you who know me will understand I don't have much confidence in doing many challenges and always love feedback from anyone good or bad, so please pop in even if it's only a little line.
( I have to say a great BIG thanks to LOU as she is always they with comments of support)
Thanks Fi x

Going round in Circle-Week132 Allsorts Challenge

Well I guess you have all wondered where I've been lately, or not as the case may be.
I have been super busy making things for a little craft fair
I did the other week with Lou.
We had a lovely night and sold a few things
but so nervous about doing it.
I unfortunately I have been struck down by a bug
so have been (still am) feeling very under the weather.
Right on with what I'm here for today.
Today's creations is for the Allsorts Challenge - Going round in circles
I have used some Christmas papers from my little stash I have.
Out came the Cricut to cut the circles to create a gap for my spinning snowflakes to travel around,(it's a little hard to show you but the spin around the circle).
I used my gel pens to draw the sentiment (snow is all around)
on some pearl white paper (sorry but that is difficult to see).
I have added glitter to the snowflakes
and a bit of distressing with peeled paint and worn lipstick.
Well thanks for popping in nice to see you.
