A Spoonfull of Sugar - Party Time!

It's a sad day for us all at A Spoonfull of Sugar as although it's new challenge time it's also our last challenge boo...hoo...  Yes after this challenge A Spoonfull of Sugar will be no more, our lovely Nikki and Debbie who have run the blog for over 3 years now have made the very difficult decision to end the challenge blog.  We back them fully, both are very busy with other things and as I say 'real life' must take priority!!  I've been with the girls from the very start back in May 2008 and have only just recently missed a couple of challenges, it's been an absolute honor to be a part of this wonderful blog with such lovely ladies.
Anyhow now I've explained the situation, the challenge theme is 'Party time' as it's bank holiday this means the Nottinghill Carnival and who needs an excuse to party heh!?!
I used a forever friends topper for my card, it's so sweet, the party poppers, you've got to love a party popper!!! and sentiment (I think) were all part of the same set, I just added a couple of little gems to the sentiment!
For all prize details please nip on over to the blog and take part one last time, sent the blog out in style!!!

As for me I've have this annoying cough for the past 3 weeks, it's exhausting me, I've burst the blood vessels in my right eye which looks a real state, obviously due to all the coughing!  I just can't catch my breath when I start.  I've had a weeks worth of antibiotics and they haven't touched it, so what next I ask myself?! 

Have a fun day!

Laptop has gone of to laptop hospital!

I have a very poorly laptop!!
Anyone that knows me will know that not being able to access the wonderful worldwide web is devestating!!!  My laptop decided not to co-operate with me last Monday, my sis-in-law who's a bit of a whizz with the old computers had a look and it took her 2 hours to try to get it to switch on!!!!!
Luckily I never cancelled the cover they talked me into taking out when I bought it, so I gave them a ring and with no success trying to fix things over the phone, my poorly laptop was picked up on Saturday and taken off to laptop hospital!!!  I should hopefully get it back in good health on Saturday.  They seem to think it's the hard drive that has gone and will need replacing!
Which means I have LOST everything I had on there, all my photo's (thankfully saved them to usb stick/cd up til March '11), favourites and worst of all, ALL OF MY CARDMAKING IMAGES which I had saved up and used some of quite regularly.  This is soooooo gutting because a lot of them were free downloads which will no longer be available boo...hoo......  serves me right for not saving them........
Anyhow hope to be back soon.
Apologies to the girls at A Spoon Full of Sugar and Charisma Cardz whom I have let down by not being able to send in my DT cards.

A new look to Charisma Cardz challenges

Hiya, just thought I'd nip by and let you know that Charisma Cardz challenge blog has got a brand new look and a couple of changes! 
We have lots of new DT members and our main change (other than the blog design) is that we are now split into 2 teams!  Team Carly and Team Gem, I'm on Team Gem!  We will be doing alternate weeks with the challenges which gives us all longer to work on our pieces and a bit of a break!
This week is Team Carly's turn and the challenge is 'Bingo' where you pick a row on the grid given (it's self explanitary if you take a look!)
