This picture was taken by Alex Holt ( thanks Alex - top picture) at my friend Dianne's 50th Birthday party, Alex is one of Dianne and Phil's two sons, the other being Matthew. I have yet to meet two nicer young men then Matthew and Alex and I hope that when Connor becomes a man he turns out as lovely as them.

Wow that was deep..Alex has a fabby camera and took some brilliant pics of Connor - this is just one of them.

1st Birthday Invitations


Well I have now finished all the invitations for Mia-ann's 1st Birthday Party which is going to be held at our house.  It will be four days before Christmas so it will give me carte-blanche to razz up the house in Pink and white...Ohhhhh I can't wait.  I used to put my tree up about the 15th December, but since knowing the Erri's, itnow goes up on the 1st of December so I get to drool over it all month.

Here is a sneaky peek at the image that has gone on the invites....

New Stamp...Milly

I went to the Craft Obsessions crop on Saturday and instead of Scrapbooking I made some cards as I seem to have lost my Scrapping MoJo...I have used "Milly on a yule log" from Spiral Whispers and I love her..

We spent today in Bath and had a lovely time just mooching around the shops and I finally got to go and have Coffee at the Pump Rooms, which I have been trying to do since 1993 !!!!!

I just stumbled across an amazing blog by a lady who makes wonderful cards....she has had over 12000 hits on her blog..makes my 350 seem pretty pathetic really...the site is go check it out she is really talented.

My latest effort in the cardmaking stakes is this one...sorry about the background..I should have cropped it !!!

A Blue Christmas....

I managed to get this Magnolia stamp from the glitter was out of stock on "tinternet" but i was so desperate for it that I rang the shop and begged them to look and see if they had it on the shelf...she did...and they did and here she is. I LOVE this space as she will be appearing in many incarnations.

A Pink Christmas

Here is a card I made thinking that I might give it to Mia-ann for Christmas but it's so not good enough for her and I'm not really that happy with it, I don't know why, In fact I might just take it to bits and start again, watch this space you MAY see it in a new incarnation!!!


I have used the Home Grown Snowman from Sugar Nellie and they dont show up but all the snowflakes have a half pearl in the centre. The papers are DCWV from the Rose Tinted Christmas Stack...

Here is a close up of her, I used Daisy Bucket Papers in the Playful Petals Range, a bit of Bazzil, pearls, swarovski crystals, a bit of ribbon and I used the Stampin Up circle stamps which I think are great.

Connor's Birthday Party.....

Well we took 10 young men to the Millstream Raceway Slot Car Track today in Ringwood for his birthday party.  They all had the best time and guess who won.....Connor of course, Tony says it';s a fix but I like to think that he won because he was the best on the day rather than the slot people sucking up to the people going to pay the bill !


He has been well and truly spoilt for his birthday, but after the year he has had with his health, I think he deserves it.
