For Mum With Art Deco

A really quick post today, I have so many cards to make this week.

But first I would like to apologise to my fellow blogging buddies for not getting round to your blogs, over the last couple of days "MR BLOGGER" has been playing silly games with me, he won't let me leave comments on blogs, I do hope this is just a temporary thing and will amend itself. He's also playing about with my posts, he won't let me publish my posts with any line spacing in them, so I then have to go back in and edit in HTML. I do know some of my blogging friends have had some similar problems so at least he isn't just doing it to me LOL!

This is for the following challenges:_
1. Paperplay challenge - week 12 - Distressing
2. Stampin' For The Weekend - challenge # 6 - For Mum
3. Allsorts - week 96 - For A Special Lady
4. 2 Sisters Challenge - challenge 32 - Make Your Own Embellishments
5. Fab 'N' Funky - challenge # 66 - Shabby Chic
6. Ladybug Crafts Ink - challenge # 21 - Handmade Flowers

Have A good day

For A Baby

Hello everyone,
Today see's a new challenge over at Oldie But A Goodie, it is the lovely Annie's turn to pick the theme and she's chosen "For A baby".
And the prizes sponsored by Bron are:-

So please pop on over and take a look at the teams gorgeous creations, and join in. All you need to do is follow the theme, use a stamp (no digi's please), that is older than 6 months old.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. Totally Papercrafts - challenge # 56 - Pearls And Lace
2. Stamp With Fun - challenge # 101 - Monochrome Blue
3. Incy Wincy - challenge 84 - Pastel Colours
4. Dream Valley - challenge 2 - New Beginnings ( I have just found this challenge)

Now I would like to thank all you lovely bloggers that sent well wishes for my eldest Son Scott, who had his operation yesterday and is now at home.
The operation went well although the surgery was more than we originally anticipated, it actually looks like something out of a horror movie, not that I watch them. There is a lot of exposed flesh, and we have to follow quite a few rules, but i'm sure it will all be worth it in the end. And Scott was a star, he did really well and coped brilliantly.

Thank you for stopping by my blog, I hope you have a good week.
