Oh deer!

I could get myself in a right mess here! Especially as I've had some bad news this afternoon but I might not be around much this next week. My Dad is very poorly. :-(

I very much would like to pass on some awards & apologise for not getting round to it sooner.

I wanted to share this little picture I made last night. I am soooooo sooooo pleased with it. :-D Can you tell! It's probably no big deal to others but I haven't been getting along with my cut&dry foam & Distress Inks but with the help of two special people I think I've sussed it!!

I have used some fabulous stamps from Creative Expressions & given some wonderful advice from both Sheena Douglass on how to hold the cut&dry foam & Lindsay Mason whose work I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. I must remember I have an ATC in my bag for the next time I see Lindsay!

Without further a do! I will pass on these awards.

The first award is from Leigh & I think I've to name 5 facts about myself you might not know about!

1.) I love bacon subs from Subway on cheese & herby bread with lettuce, red onion, tomatoes, green peppers & southwest sauce!

2.) I'm planning to do Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas 2009.

3.) I love to eat raw sprouts

4.) I have a character on Animal Crossing WII game called Boo! & I find her money rock everyday!

5.) I'm knitting a red (his favourite colour!) cardigan for Tom & have made the right front wrong!


I'd like to pass this award on to......

Carolyn at Love Stitching Red. Carolyn's work is simply stunning. I love everything about Carolyn's work & her blog is just awesome. I am very lucky indeed to call Carolyn my friend. Please call on Carolyn's blog I am sure you will come away with a wonderful feeling of calm. I know I feel much more at peace with the world after stopping by. :-)
