it's been a while

Hi everyone sorry i have not been around for a while it's been a bit manic around here what with school holidays and my best friends wedding fast approaching we have 9 weeks but as i keep telling her that it will fly by.
so back to crafting first i was again very honoured to receive 2 awards and they are:

The instructions for each award are as follows:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind 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" It also says: "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."

and:Nominate 5 to 10 blogs you feel show great attitude and gratitude. Link to your nominees within your blog post.- Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award. Link back to the person who gave you the award to show your appreciation.

(Lemonade Stand)
so this is the bit i find really hard there are so many blogs to inspire and show need skills and ideas so i nominate:


Becki & Alan




so i do know that most of my nominees have in fact already had the awards but with both thought and consideration i get both inspiration and knowledge from my top 5.
you can catch up with all their blogs on the links on my side bar.
so now for the crafting so every were i look at the moment the in thing is to use lots of different papers of different sizes and patters on 1 card!! and i seem to struggle with this as every time i do something around this style it seems unfinished.

but i had another go with my papers from Sweet shoppe designs and my little lovin's stamp this is my finished project.

my image is coloured with my whisper pens and stamped with walnut distress ink with the papers distressed around the edge.
hope you like it and i will try to update this a bit more.
