Hi guys, how y'all doing, hope you're all enjoying the extra day off this week with it being a Bank holiday. I've had a surprise day to myself and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Unfortunately I don't have a craft room (yet!!!) so I have to craft at the kitchen table so today I haven't left it except for the necessary coffee and choccy (sshhh!) shouldn't be having any of that but hey there is no-one here to find out. My mum came over last night and asked if she could take the kiddiewinkles back for a sleepover and then an outing today with grandad and hubby is actually working so I'm having a fab time crafting away to my hearts content.

Anyway, I'll make this short as its now 5.30 p.m. and 'The Hunter' will be wanting his food when he comes in shortly, so I'll quickly show you my card for today. Its another wedding one which I was asked to make and I've challenged myself to make a card with all white paper/card just to see if I could do it.

I'm fairly happy with it I suppose, its a little simple compared to those I normally do and theres not a flower in sight!!!I've used pearl paper I've had in my stash for ages and embossed it with the cuttlebug. The Greetings farm 'Cake topper' stamp has been coloured with copics and decoupaged and everything else is from stash. I used the fab sketch from over at Papertake Weekly, just love this one will be using it again. Honestly I don't know what I would do without sketches I don't really class myself as a creative person and without them I think I would be well and truly stumped so thanks to all those folks out there who come up with these wonderful sketches all the time they really do help.
Right I'm going to love you and leave you guys enjoy the rest of the day and hopefully I'll see you soon.
Take care

Cor blimey that was a struggle!!

Hey folks, how ya all doing making the most of the mini bout of sunshine I hope. Unfortunately, the good weather has finally broken down here on the south coast I woke up to rain this morning just in time for May Bank holiday and half term!!!!

Firstly I want to apologise for not being around much recently and I have been such a bad blogger leaving comments as well. As the title suggests the project I have just completed I seem to having been working on for an age I struggled with this one I'm afraid mr mojo packed his bags and headed off for a jolly leaving me trying to finish it. Add to that that my little girl woke up one morning extremely spotty with a bout of 'chicken spots' as she calls it I've found it hard to get going on anything. Anyway I was asked to make something for a 25th wedding anniversary which is Silver so obviously I was asked to use lots of silver. I don't seem to have in my possession many stamps suitable so I went with the Greetings Farm couple again. I was asked to make a four drawer box again and just in case anybody hasn't picked up the link from earlier posts I got the tutorial for this over on Kirsten's blog HERE.

Well I'll cut it short and leave you with some pics and a recipe.

Well I've gotta dash as its time to get the gruesome twosome from school. I am going to make a big effort to be a better blogger, so I'll catch up with you later folks.
Take care and enjoy your day.
