This picture makes me happy....

Not long now till Captain Jack is back and look he's got Spike with him LOL

And just to prove that I do still actually scrap sometimes here is my first LO of the year.

I just grabbed a random photo (which happened to be from 1998!) and some handy paper/embellishments. Whole thing took less than half an hour. Have decided this is the way to go as I have accumulated a ridiculous amount of scrapping stash over the last couple of years and I really need to use it up.

Then I was a good girl and used my scraps to make some cards. I love this Li'l Cowboy from Sugar Nellie stamps

This one uses a Magnolia stamp (Edwin fishing) that I got from Silly Monkey Crafts

And another Magnolia one this time using papers from Pink Petticoat
This one was done for a challenge over on the new Tilda & Co inspiration blog.

"For our First Challenge this will be FLOWERS, would like to see any type of flowers on your work, be it Die Cuts, Blooms, Primas, or even Flower Printed papers etc. Anything goes as long as it involves having flowers on your work."

Well I've got some flowery paper and a couple of prima flowers so I think that counts :D

Finally some thank you cards again using some Pink Petticoat papers. I love their designs so much and I have succumbed and ordered the doodled set (well it was especially good value as the Christmas set comes free with any CD order at the moment :D )

And this one made for a challenge on Michelle's blog

{Happy New Year}

Happy New Year's to 2008.

I made this card for my friend who was hosting the annual Hogmany party this year! Papers are from the gorgeous lola's Boutique range by Pink Petticoat

We had a great Christmas followed by a couple of days over in Edinburgh when we went to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Playhouse. Kenneth & Kirsten got the tickets as a Christmas present so it was really good to be able to surprise them. Especially Kirsten as Craig was her favourite when we watched "Joseph" on TV. She was just so thrilled to see him and he signed her poster and CD for her after the show (and she got to give him the picture she drew for him! ....first crush anyone LOL ).

We also made it to the Castle in time for the one o'clock gun which then took us all unawares as we got distracted by a pipe band!
Unfortunately I forgot to charge the camera battery before we went out so no photos...but the one above I found on the internet is taken from where we were standing :D

Another couple of cards made using Pink Petticoat papers

And this one is for a friend (wonder which one! LOL ) who has a big birthday coming up soon.

Anyway better go and quickly tidy up (again!) before mum & dad arrive for their New Year's day meal...traditional Lentil soup followed by steak pie and all the trimmings... mmmm!
