another award

This is another I forgot to post from one of my closest friends Jo
yes she's the one you've to blame for setting me loose on blogland lol thank you hunny for being there with the boot when I need a kick up the butt whether its college work or crafting I know I can rely on you to be there and kick me hard! :-)

I'm supposed to pass this on to 8 people but its really hard to choose so I'm going to pass it to EVERYONE who visits my blog - so feel free to post it, each and every one of you deserves it :-)
I am going to pass it directly though to one person who I think really deserves this and that's Amy Jo's daughter. Anyone who hasn't done should have a look at her blog - even though she's only 11 her cards are fab - a lot better than some I've seen made by people who've been crafting for years. Amy I love your cards sweetie and every time you send me one I'm thrilled - keep pinching mum's stash lololol xxxx

blog award :-)

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award"

I actually got this a couple of weeks back from Clare, but sort of got bogged down with all the college work and completely forgot to upload it. thank you so much hun, it means a lot when there's so many fab blogs around, you made my day by choosing my blog for an award :-) xxxx

I'm passing this on to

More dimensional flowers

These are the other two cards for the England Stampers dimensional mingle. Both sets of flowers and papers are downloads from Fred She Said Ribbons on both are from my stash - yes, there is ribbon on the sides of the blue one lol but its a sheer very pale blue so doesn't show too clearly, buttons, paper flowers & brads all from stash, wording is a scrapbook download from Jo

Dimensional Flower Cards

Over on the England Stampers group Kathy set this month's mingle as 'dimensional flowers' we had to make 3 cards to send to our swap partners. This is the first one which I made using backing papers from Milly's Garden over on Tinker & Co combined with a printable fold back kit from Crafty Designz used as a topper and fastened with ribbon.
Anyone interested in joining the group just let me know, its a great little group and Kathy's looking for new members - and its not only for people in the UK or stampers lol

I absolutely love the milly downloads from Tinker & Co and when I saw the new Milly Gothica collection I just couldn't resist it, so much so I had to take it through to the inside too :-)
Papers are from Milly Gothica & Milly's cake, the ribbon doesn't show too well but its sheer black with silver sparkles, flowers on the front and black hearts from stash, flowers on the inside cut from the milly cake backing paper
I love this card it has to be one of my favourites in a long time :-)

Watercoloured the image with the felt tips again, backing papers are free downloads, ribbon and gems were in my stash.
