Yes unfortunately I'm still not feeling good :( getting better but not feeling like doing anything yet. Anyway, don't want to bore you. 

Here is my card for the new challenge which started yesterday ay Sweet Stampin.
The theme for this week is

For my card I used a clear stamp that was free in a magazine. There are two polar bears. The centre die is Marianne Creatables, the border punch is Martha Stewart, while the snowflakes are Spellbinders.

The prize for this week is a pack of promarkers from our sponsor Letraset and a Joanna Sheen voucher for our month prize.

Anything But Square

Good morning everyone. Sorry for the lack of posts and visits lately. Hubby returned from UK last Friday and so we were out and about all weekend long but now I am unwell again!! It seems the cold I had last week hadn't completely gone and now it's back with a vengeance because this time I'm much worse having a temperature as well. Don't really like being like this at this time of the year. I feel I'm going to miss the office Christmas dinner on Friday as well...  and I was so looking forward to wear a dress which I bought just for the occasion!

Anyway, I did this DT card for the new challenge starting today at I ♥ Promarkers. Not one of my best cards unfortunately, the theme and me feeling like this not being on my side!!

The sentiment and image that I used this time are both from Crafty Sentiments

Look what you can win this week from our sponsor Marianne Design.

Well I think I'm going off to cuddle up in front of the TV now. 
Don't feel like doing anything else :(

Thanks for looking

One for the boys

Another very busy day at the office yesterday and all afternoon as well. First I had taxi driving and then I also went to try to buy me a dress to wear for tomorrow's cocktail party, which unfortunately was unsuccessful. The only one that I really liked was about Eur200, so I didn't even try it on, in case I liked it a real lot. I didn't want to spend that much money on a dress, which I would probably wear only once!
So that means that I still don't know what to wear for tomorrow!!!

Anyway, I have another Christmas card today and this time it's my DT Card for the new challenge starting today at I ♥ Promarkers. The theme for this week is
so you can make anything you like, just as long as it is for the boys and coloured with Promarkers, Acquamarkers, Flexmarkers or Triamarkers.

I have of course decided to make me another Christmas card and used this gorgeous Forever Friends stamp that was a freebie in a magazine.

Kept my card very clean, and just added three gems, peel off sentiment and the gorgeous star that I recycled from an old Christmas card.
Even the background scene I have recycled. It was on the inside of an old Christmas card which I was going to chuck away. I really love how my card turned out today.

Our sponsor for the lucky winner this week is a £10 gift voucher from

I'm feeling so much better today, thanks for all your well wishes yesterday. ... It's not that I am 100% fit again, but good enough to go back to work to have such a busy day that I didn't see the day go by!!

Well it's Tuesday today, so it's time for another challenge at Crafty Sentiments

This week the theme is SNOWFLAKES
For my card this week I decided to use one of the older rubber stamps at Crafty Sentiments, Warm Wishes, and coloured her with my promarkers. Papers are digi ones, and for the circle border I again used Debby's idea with my Martha Stewart punch. I am really loving this and quite easy to do too.

A Clean and Simple Christmas Card

So here I am again. This time I have a Christmas card which isn't a DT card and I am using one of my favourite Christmas stamps, Eira from CC Designs. I've had this stamp for quite some time now but always use it year after year as I just love it.

For my card this time I decided to make a clean and simple one and so stamped my imaged directly on the main white card. I coloured Eira with my new Letraset FlexMarkers which, lucky me, I had won last week :) and then inked up the edges with blue distress ink. In my mind I had intended to stop there but I'm not good with the inking so I stamped up lots of snowflakes to hide my boo boos. I then finished it off with the sentiment from my MSE Stamp set and three gems and randomly glitter stickles all around.
I really loved how it turned out.

These are my challenges for my card.

More than one fold

Good morning everyone, and a happy Sunday to all. It is so windy here at the moment, and just awful weather with rain as well. If I were well, it wouldn't have liked it, but as it is, with hubby abroad and me unwell, I am not bothered at all! 

Anyway, I have two cards today and here I am with my first one which is for the new challenge starting today at One Stitch At A Time. The theme for this challenge is MORE THAN ONE FOLD and so I decided to do a circle easel card.

This week I got to choose my image from one of Leesa's digi stamps and this is Oingo Octopus. I coloured him with my promarkers and then cut him out to mount him on my card. A very quick card today, just added some of those fun bubbly dots and doodling all around my card.
Our sponsor this week is
with $9 to spend at the store.

Thank you for looking.

Will be back with my second card for the day.

Dies / Punches

Good morning everyone. How's your week going? ... hope not like mine. Yes me am not too good unfortunately as got a bad cold :(  I didn't go to work these last two days too and with hubby abroad till  the end of next week, it's not that fun at all! I am now really hoping that I will be fine by next Wednesday as we have our annual cocktail party on that day and I love going. Still don't know what to wear though as was going to find me a dress today, and not yet fit to go out!

Anyway, here is my card for today and it's my DT card for the new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. This week our theme is DIES AND/OR PUNCHES.

For my card this week I decided to use this fun digi image from Bugaboo Stamps which was one of the stamps I had chosen when I had won some time ago. I thought it was perfect for a card that I had to do. I coloured her with my promarkers, the background paper was in a magazine freebie, and the dies I used are the Spellbinders circle, Die-Namics stars and numbers and the skyline border from Memory Box.

We are this week sponsored by Die Cut Dreams and monthly by Joanna Sheen.

Some photos

It was Wednesday when I last posted anything on my blog! As I said, I was going to be very busy as I needed to sew me a costume to wear for a Boogie Nights party that we were going to yesterday. Thought I would share some photos since I don't have any cards to share still :)

So here I am enjoying my new afro wig before the party ha ha

And at the party dancing the night away!!!

With my friend

and with lots of nice people at the party

We really enjoyed it. Great night out !

And two last photos now to finish it off... totally different.. no wig or costume!
This was this morning and I'm here with my friend doing the President's Annual Walk for Charity. Lot's of people participating, over 13,000. It's always a lovely day out. Couldn't miss it even though we went home after 3.00a.m. after yesterday's party.

Thank you for looking and hope you had a nice weekend too.
