Saturday 16th February

I was chuffed to little mint balls to see some nice comments on the blog so a HUGE thank you to you lovely ladies xx. It is nice to know that other people like what you do, especially when their own stuff is just fab!!

I have had another cardy day today. I got some new stamps last week from Pink Cat (see link) and I have been dying to have a go but with one thing and another just haven't got around to it. So today I decided that as I had spent hours last night doing work on my other half's blog for him, that I would have a bit of 'me' time today and get stuck into them. Well that was the plan, but then I saw that Liz at Pink Petticoat had got another fab download - Dad's Taxis - and of course, I had to have it. Then I saw Michelle's 3-2-1 comp. So that was it - I was torn between the 3.

So I did them all - naughty naughty!!! The house is like a tip now but hey, who cares!!! So here are the fruits of my labour today. Please excuse the photography :-( I don't think David Bailey has much to worry about ........

What a fab download Dad Taxis is. Check it out peeps!! I used the leopardy one for this card and I happened to have a bit of black and white doodle stripes paper from the PP Rainbow Doodles kit and thought it looked a bit like a road for the little car to go along. So I made a little slider and the black strips push and pull it along the 'road'. A friend of mine (Annie xx) gave me some gold paper and it is really nice - lovely texture - so I used that and some gold brads to finish it off.

This one is for Michelle's comp. 3 blooms, 2 brads and 1 piece of ribbon. PP Minis big dots in pink matted onto some acid green card - I really love those colours together - and then I covered some PP monograms with some bits of other PP paper and edged them with lime green glitter. I finished it off with 3 punched flowers and 2 little green brads I got from Michelle. The ribbon was from Hobbycraft and there is a bit of bling in the centre of the flowers. It is on it's way to you Michelle xx

I am not really into stamping but I could not resist these stamps from Pink Cat - Crafty Kitty Plate 1. They are such good value, and they arrived from America within a week - awesome - and a big thanks to Melissa for fantastic service!!! I put them with the leopard print paper from PP Sweet Cupcakes and a bit of the gold paper I got from Annie. Out came the ribbons, Glamour Dust and brads to finish. I am dedicating this card to all you lovely craft queens out there.

So after all the self indulgence today, I had better go and get Richard some dinner. Bless him - he never once complains.

Have a great Saturday night folks xx
