Sorry it's late peeps, had a really hectic day yesterday so didn't get a chance to do the draw. I've put the numbers into a hat today and the number that I pulled out was No. 10. Looking down the list of comments the 10th one to comment was WEEJULS - CONGRATULATIONS! I'll get your parcel off to you early this week. Sorry to all those that didn't get picked but hopefully I'll have some more goodies to give away soon xx

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Well, good morning!  Are you in the Festive Spirit yet?  Over at Stampin For The Weekend we're definately getting that way with this fortnights Challenge being Feeling Festive.  It's sponsored by Live and Love Crafts so why not come and join us and win some lovely goodies.

My card today is the first I've done of my Christmas Cards (only about another dozen to do!).  I used a new Lili of the Valley Image that I bought when they last had a sale and I really enjoyed colouring it up.  They switched the Christmas Lights on here in Hull last Thursday so with that and starting my cards I'm really starting to look forward to Christmas.  I've been doing a bit of Christmas Shopping throughout the year too so not so much running about nearer the time.

It's also the last day to enter my candy draw (you'll find the link in the sidebar - I'm not techie enough to have it as a stickie lol).  Good luck to all that have already entered.  I won't be at home tonight but will do the draw and announce the winner tomorrow xx

Autumn/Fall Colours @ SFTW

Well it's Friday again and time for another challenge over at  
This week the challenge is Fall Colours and it's sponsored by the lovely team over at 
I've used one of their stamps on my card, it's called Flower Bears Poppy and I thought it was a great image to use especially as this weekend is Remembrance Weekend.  I'll be sitting down on Saturday night to watch the service on BBC, it's lovely especially at the end when the poppies fall. Think we're heading out to a firework display earlier in the evening, I'm hoping it will be a lovely Autumn night, with Crisp Dry Air and a lovely clear sky so we can see the fireworks clearly.  Make sure if you're out and about that you wrap up warm....these nights are certainly cooling down!  I'll be back later to post some pics of last weekends Halloween shenanigans, we had a great time!

 I've used the sketch over at Sketch N Stash this week which is this one

Noticed that the pic isn't brilliant, had to take it last night.  Will try and get a better picture over the weekend!
