Double Thanks

I have to say a BIG thank you to Erum ( ) for making me the new blog header. Erum had read my earlier post saying that I wish I could make one to go with my new background, and made one for me, how great is that? Check out her blog, her cards are fabulous and she knows I just love the gift box with the shell on top!! Erum if you are reading this 'thanks' again!
My 2nd BIG thank you is for Kay (Lazykay -link on the right) for giving me the following award

The rules are :

1. The winner can put the logo on her blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the girls you’ve nominated

Once again I apologize to Kay that I don't have time at the moment to choose (too hard) people to pass this award on to, so if you are reading this consider yourself awarded!

I made this card a few days ago, but as I had other cards to show saved it until now. This is for Friday Sketchers using this weeks lovely sketch made by Mumur from France. The design team cards are gorgeous and great for inspiration (link on the right) This is the first time I had used this particular Sugar Nellie stamp, I just think she is sooo... cute especially wearing that crochet'd hat! I've seen so many wonderful card using charms recently so decided to add 1 to my card and I will be using a lot more in future cards!!
I went shopping in Norwich with my mum yesterday, she 'had' to go to the M&S sale, she works in a smaller store so thought she would find a lot more bargains and more choice if we went to a bigger 1!! She actually didn't end up with very much, we got several things for the girls though, I got Lillie a long nearly to the ground turquoise dress with halter neck to wear for parties, she tried it on when we got home and looked so sweet, she absolutely loved it!!! I HAD to go in the Range before we headed home and picked up some goodies, thanks to Becky I am going monochrome with my family christmas cards this year hence the black ribbons, gems, paperpack!
and finally after a long 6 week wait my photo's finally came from the photo shoot I went to London to have, it's lovely to see them A4 sized, I think the following photo is my favourite, I'm wearing my 'guest at a wedding' dress Lol.!! I've worn it to 2 weddings and already lined it up to wear at my cousin's wedding next June!! Got to wear it really as a few weeks ago I went shopping with my parents (mum wanted a cardigan to wear for my aunties funeral) I came home with a huge, gorgeous, big red hat that was an absolute bargain in the sales!!!!!
