I've been given 2 awards and tagged today

Well I've come onto my blog tonight to find I've been given 2 lovely awards and I've been tagged too. Thank you to Jan, Debs and Caro for both the awards for tagging me. I need to think who I can tag so I will be back later to let you know.

Now for the tag. I have to go to the 6th file and show you the 6th picture in it

Here goes: The photo is of my 3 at Twycross zoo. It was taken last year so Michaela (in the black) was 9, Kayleigh was 8 and Joshua was 7 when the photo was taken

Cards by my 2 daughters

On CMPC forum Sarah Bostock form Quick Cards Made Easy asked people to send in tips for saving money so Kayleigh my 9 year old wrote in saying she uses leftover gift tags from one year to make the following years Christmas cards and Michaela my 10 year old saves junk mail envelopes to use for Iris folding cards. I hope you like their cards

Green challenge

On one of the many forums I belong to this months challenge is to make a green card. As long as most of the card/ design was green we were ok. Here is what I came up with. Both cards are a green base card embossed with my cuttlebug embossing folder. I then added the relevent ribbons, brads and picture. All I have to do now is decide what occassion the cards are for before adding the greeting

I'm Back

Well it's been a while since I was last here. My mum was rushed into hospital a week before Christmas and came out just before the big day. As you can imagine everything was a little hectic but we did have a lot of fun as It was my Birthday and then my daughters 9th Birthday on Boxing Day too.

I think I'm finally sorted and back to all the forums and hopefully soon the challenges that I regulary enter too. I will endeavour to show you all my cards ATCs etc that I make this year for the challenges.

Happy New Year to you all and thank you for dropping by to read my blog
