Happy 9th Anniversary to us!

Today is mine and hubby's 9th wedding anniversary, yes 9 years ago we were at Gretna Green and got married at 2.02pm on the 20.02.2002.  It was funny seeing Richard Madeley (Richard and Judy) on Something for the Weekend this morning as 9years and 1 day ago I was speaking to him via the telephone for the Richard and Judy show on channel 4!!!
We didn't have anything too exciting planned just nipped into town to do a few bits and then on to the Pizza Hut for lunch.  How romantic lol!!!  We did have the children with us and children still eat for free, so that was a big factor in the decisions!!
We started off the day with a bacon sarnie and would you believe that lying on the table beside hubby's plate layed this heart shaped bread crumb!  I couldn't believe my eyes, and honestly this wasn't cut to shape!
We don't really do presents, but I did treat him to a mug and coaster set with the most awful moggie's (morris minors) on them, urghh he has one of these cars which he is itching to bring home from work and 'do up' but I've managed to keep it away for 10years lol!!!  He gave me a pack of rechargeable batteries for my camera!!!  I really did want them though, I've got holidays coming up!!!

Chairsma Cardz - Spring has Sprung

Good morning, we have a lovely new challenge at Charisma Cardz and this weeks theme is 'spring has sprung'.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to use our sponsors image for my card as my printer has been playing up, then I worked out my ink had run out but it wasn't showing me so, I know I have some new inks but for the life of me can't find them.  Typical heh!?!  So I used an image that I already had printed off, this is a cute little girlie from Anne Bodil.
For all prize info and to see the gorgeous spring creations the girls have made nip on over to the blog.

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 139

Morning everyone.  New challenge time at A Spoon Full of Sugar and this week we would like to see 'anything but a card'.
So I certainly did that lol!!!  Here are the Valentine's cupcakes that I made!  Red velvet (chocolate) with soft pink icing and various edible and non-edible hearts.

hubby and the girls all had one in their pack ups, and I must admit that I had one this afternoon after work and it tasted pretty alright to!!!
Lillie had a sleepover at Nannie and Grandad's on Saturday so when Hollie and I went to pick her up Hollie gave them both a gift wrapped cupcake as a little surprise! 
To see sponsor and prize details please check out the blog where you will find the amazing 'non' cards from the rest of the team.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone

This morning my eldest nipped downstairs to get something before getting ready for school, she came back up whinging that she couldn't go to the toilet because Daddy had stuck something all over the doorway and she couldn't get through!!!!
I headed downstairs to find, starting on the stairs a newspaper heart trail, which led down the hallway
to the kitchen, where the first garland hung (Lillie posing in the background!) 
there were hearts all over the floor! 
the offending garland (which Lillie couldn't get through!) 
a message on the worktop! 
along with another heart! 
there were also a few more in the downstairs loo and on the doors!!
Hadn't Daddy been a busy boy!?!

He's gone to work with the usual 'hidden' chocolate hearts and love bugs in his lunch box, along with a card and Valentine's cupcake which I made yesterday afternoon!

We've bought each other token gifts which we'll open later, we are also going out for a meal.

Hope you are being spoilt to!

Chairsma Cardz - Mythical/Fantasy

Good morning, Thursday already wow it'll soon be the weekend!
We have a new challenge over at Charisma Cardz and the theme is 'mythical/fantasy'.
I literally left my card until the last minute, I really didn't know what to do!  Still think it turned out okay in the end.  I used an image from Pollycraft, not sure if it was a freebie or one that I won!
We have 2 fab sponsors offering great prizes and the girls have made wonderful examples, so please check out the blog to see these.

Must dash, gotta get my sausage rolls out of the oven!  Sadly none for us, I'm making them for someone else.  Mind you, that's good for the waistline!

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 138

Good morning, new challenge time at A Spoon Full of Sugar, this week as we are so close to Valentine's day we would like to 'See some LOVE', this can be a love theme, add some hearts, have a loving sentiment etc.
I'm still lacking in creative flare, don't know where it's gone but it's been a while now!  I didn't know what to do so in the end I googled 'love' images and came accross the one I used.  I love these pictures that are predominantly black and white with 1 highlighted bit (umberella), I simply matched the colours with my papers, added a couple of gems and stamped the sentiment.  To be honest I really do like this one!!!
We have a fab sponsor, to see details and the girls examples please check out the blog.

Chairsma Cardz - What? No embellies?!

Good morning, time for a new Charisma Cardz challenge and this week was Leah's turn to set the theme, she chose for us to use : Image/Sentiment and Papers only!  Now this certainly was a challenge because although a lot of my cards are basic I still add flowers or buttons or gems or ribbon etc but once I had found my image and then the sentiment it all fell into place.
The image that I have used is from Pink Cat Studio, the sentiment is a past freebie from the Sentimental Sundays blog, I just printed it out onto pink paper.
We have 2 wonderful sponsors this week, for all details of prizes and to see the girls fabby examples, remember with no embellies, check out the blog.
