Got That Friday Feeling!

Woohoo it's Friday again and the Sun is Shining! Quiet weekend for me this week, last week at the Cake and Bake Show was hectic.....but well worth it cos I got my Chocolat Book signed by Eric Lanlard (swoon swoon lol) and a pic of him handing it over.  We had a fantastic day, seeing all the lovely foods and sipping cocktails!  We tried a Vanilla Ice and a Rose Water and Champagne cocktail.  Both were lovely but I now need to find a bottle of rose water essence to replicate that one.  It will be a cheap mans version with Cava as opposed to champagne but I'm sure it will have the same effect  lol.

Anyway enough of my chatter, it's time to announce the new challenge over at

This time we're sponsored by

The challenge this time is to use your favourite stamp.  I really struggled with this one as I have so many favourites.  I tend to use my LOTV stamps more often than any other and this is one that I use frequently.  She colours up so well and gives some great results.  She is Fairy Pom Pom and she's just too cute!

Sentiment - Freebie From Internet Backed with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circle

Blue's Rule!

Well it's that day again!  April Fools Day.  How many of you got caught out already?  lol.  I've scheduled this post so time will tell if anyone manages to trick me, I'm hoping not.

I'm not joking when I say I can't believe how quick this year is going.  Seems no time at all since I joined the fab team over at CRAFTS GALORE ENCORE and yet here we are, the 1st of the month again already.....and we're on Challenge no. 4 already!  We've got the fabulous

as a sponsor.
They very generously gave the DT team some gorgeous images to work with.  I chose Bling Baby for mine, I jazzed her up with a little "bling" and as the challenge this month is to use a favourite colour I've opted for some gorgeous blues.

Pop on over to our blog (link above) and see what my other DT Sis's have done, there are some fantastic ideas amongst them.
