Happy Thoughts

Helloooo, well it's Friday again and that means a new Challenge over at
This week it's Anything But A Card.  There will be a prize at the end of the challenge but for this one it's a Surprise!

I had seen some jars/tins over the internet designed to add your thoughts to them so that at the end of the year you could look through them and remember some of the good things from the year.  So...I took an old Kenco Millicano tin and gave it a makeover.  I haven't added any thoughts to it sister did tell me that as I'm usually so miserable it wouldn't be very full at the end of the year but she was joking......she was joking right?!! 

Anyway hope you'll come on over and join us as we all love to see the things you make!

Happy Birthday!

Hello again! The new challenge over at

We had free range to use whichever stamp we wanted this time and for this card I chose the lovely Jules by Krista at Saturated Canary.  The birthday girl loved it and we had a fab cake to help her celebrate (it would have been rude not to lol).
