Charisma Cardz -Love

Good morning, it's team Carly's week this week over at Charisma Cardz and the theme is 'Love' I thought that as I had got a card made I would share it with you, not very lovey but at least the sentiment has some love!!
I have used an image that I printed from a freebie disc that came with one of my mags, these ones are really quite sweet, ready coloured and perfect for quickie cards!  I have sliced the front off of the card diagonally from corner to corner and edged it with snowflakes, I think I like it!
for all prize details and to see the 'lovely' examples from the rest of the team please nip on over to the blog and share the love lol!!!

Charisma Cardz - Gift bag/box and card

Good morning, new challenge time at Charisma Cardz and this week our challenge is to make a 'Gift bag/box and card'
I had fun making these, my mojo seemed to come back for a weeks visit last week (gone again now!).  The image is one from Digi Stamp Boutique, I love her big happy smile, she's so happy to be on her way to give the lucky person her gifts and card!
I've used the same image for the gift bag which started out as a plain white paper bag.  I've used the same papers but added a couple more as it was a bigger area to decorate. 
We have 2 fabby sponsors this week who have donated great prizes, for details of what these are and to see the wonderful examples from the rest of the girls please pop on over to the blog.

Charisma Cardz - Inspired by a song

Good morning, new challenge time over at Charisma Cardz and our theme this week is 'inspired by a song' any song you like!!
I've made a scrapbook page using pictures I took of my eldest nephew on a day out at the seaside right at the beginning of the school summer holidays.  I had bought a bubble wand from a cheapie shop and took it onto the beach with us, they loved it!  Nephew got hold of it and started blowing bubbles, hence my song inspiration being 'I'm forever blowing bubbles' perfect heh!?!

I'm planning on making a page for my youngest nephew, with pictures of him rollerskating entitled 'Skater Boy' I would've made this as a 2nd example for the challenge but just haven't had the time!
I'll then let the boys have them to put on the wall of their new bedroom!

We have some fabby prizes up for grabs and the girls have made some gorgeous examples, so please nip over to the blog for a look.

As for me, I should've gone back to work yesterday but couldn't.  I'm still unwell, I'm now into week no.5 and getting somewhat fed up with it now.  Survived a weeks holiday at the Isle of Wight last week (JUST) was ill but just had to get on with it for the kids!  Bless them I start couging and then it's as if my throat closes up and I fight to catch that first breath, they rush over saying "breath mum, breath" and come armed with tissues etc caus I'm bringing up yuckness and my eyes water every time.  It's great when I have an attack when I'm out as it looks like I've been crying!!!  I actually think these 2nd lot of stronger antibiotics might be working, although the doctor doesn't know what's wrong as when he checked my chest was clear and the oxygen in my blood re breathing is really good!?
