Make A Wish

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend. It is time for another challenge over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it is Heathers turn to choose the theme and she chose "Make Wishes Come True" - Use something on your creation that makes you think of wishes. As soon as I saw the theme I knew which stamp I had to use, Yep Blowing Dandelions HMUR1002. But all my sparkle isn't showing very well, i'm rubbish with the camera aren't I. I have made a card with a bookmark in a pocket, which I have perforated so it can be torn off from the card. Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and a $(25) gift card to Simon Says Stamp shop is up for grabs for the winner.

You had better hop on over to the challenge blog to see all the challenge details. Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration so pop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

Now to announce the winner of my surprise blog hop candy

And the winner is ............................................................. yes it's you Crafty Chris, please get in touch and I will send you your surprise package.

But before I go I would like to make a big apology as I haven't been a good blogger and haven't been visiting you all as often as I would like. Since the new year I've had a terrible cold and chesty cough, it comes and goes but is taking it's toll on my chest, back and ribs. It goes for about 4/5 days and I think YEH it's finally gone and then it's back again. I've been to the doctors and he said everythings fine, it's just taking me longer to get over it. Tell that to my body, then my Sinusis like to join in here and there too, they definately don't want to be left out. So you see after a day of coughing sniffling and taking cold remedies, i'm tired on an evening and can't keep up with my blogging. So please bear with me and hopefully things will return to normal real soon.
