Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Hello friends,
A few things today - firstly another card featured in this month's edition of 
Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.
I created my own spiral flowers and used Foliage, love stencilling those leaves.
These are the Pink Paislee - Prairie Hill papers, very much autumnal colours and very nice.
Secondly, remember the Home' Kit
Lynn has been super speedy and finished hers.  She kindly sent a picture across and I asked if I could feature it.  As you can see Lynn has made some clever tweaks including pastel chalk to the edges of the letters.  I think it's lovely and so interesting to see Lynn's take on the design. 
There are a couple of kits still available - just email if you are interested. 

Next up...look what I found!!!
Not quite in a bag but instead giant ones!
 I decided they should go in a special jar and told the boys "hands off!"
 But I don't think it is the boys I need to worry about!! 
No chance Bella - no chocolate for dogs!
And - before I go, today's Photo A Day subject is 'One'
I decided to go with Chapter One.
I'm enjoying this photo thing already, oh dear another addiction!
Take care friends.

WOW a very busy blog today Christine you are always so busy.
Your card is beautiful such nice colours and the flowers really give it that special touch

Now lets get serious , CHOCOLATE glad you found what you were looking for { on a bigger scale as well } ,i think looking at Bella nearly dribbling you were wise to put it in a safe jar
but looking at her little face i do feel sorry for her .

Take Care

Hi Christine, Lynn has certainly made a lovely job of her plaque (have not started mine - Olympics got in the way). Your card is a beauty and one of my favs even without a butterfly!. Those sweets - oh my goodness, they are huge, no wonder Bella is interested.....hope you enjoy them. Crafty hugs, Anne x

Such a pretty card Christine - really up my street.

So glad you found a form of the chocolate with hundreds and thousands on top. Bella looks toooo interested, bet some doggy chocs would taste better though!

I love the pictures of the HOME kit. Really really good.

Hugs Sue P xx

Lynn said...

HI Christine, had a bit of a surprise seeing my plaque.... it's good to hear that your followers like it too ! Those Jazzie's are HUGE, they wouldn't have got to the jar in our house !

Lynn xx

Hi Christine

Hi Christine,
I have seen your card and it's lovely. The papers that were free in the mag this month are really lovely and I look forward to making something nice with them too.
OOOOOHHHHHH I love Jazzies (that's what we all call those white choc drops with hundreds & thousands). I must get someone to look for these in Asda for me, they are my downfall I am sorry to say. When I get to the cinema, this is one of the sweets I have to put in my pick n mix!!
As to your ONE picture, what a Chapter 'ONE' to choose. Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett are two of my all time favourite characters. However, even though the batty Mrs Bennett of 'Pride and Prejudice' is a nag and a neurotic swooner, you cannot help but love her can you!!
Fabulous, fun post Christine.
Lovely plaque Lynn.
Big hugs Linda x

LisaK said... out, watch out, there's a Bella about! LOL. Bless her soo cute.
