Blogging Buddies

Saturday, 15 January 2011


Hiya everyone. Very blustery today here in East Yorkshire.  Won't be going far today, maybe a walk to the shops for some bits and bobs.  I am missing not having a motor!  Am saving hard as plan to get a new one end March, unless I start going crazy beforehand, then I'll be getting one in February lol.  I'm determined to buy one outright, don't want to give in and get a loan as you pay loads more back in interest.  I'll be wrapping up warm and taking the dogs out for a walk, they're missing not having a car as can't get to our full variety of walks we do.  Dylans doing really well and managing well with just the one eye.  The vets really pleased with his progress so far and hopefully the lampshade can be removed for good next Friday.  He's getting his little spark and personality back which is lovely to see.

Today we have another challenge for you over at the Secret Crafter.  This week our theme is.......

With Love

It could be love images or papers or just "with love" sentiment - it's up to you.  I had in mind my mum for this card and here's what I came up with.......

I used one of my rather neglected PB images here and some HOTP papers I found in my stash.  I coloured with copics and promarkers available from the Secret Crafter Store.  The nestie and gems are also from the store.  Ribbon and cardstock is from my stash.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges.......

PaperPlay - Cutie Patootie
Totally Gorjuss - Cuddly
Penny Black at Allsorts - All You Need is Love

We do hope you can join in the fun.  Can't wait to see what your fabulous creations for this.
