My friend Kim was absolutely thrilled when i gave this to her Tuesday night ... she even took it into work with her Wednesday so that she could show the girls there ... bless her! I most definately have a couple of people in mind for one of these, but i wont be saying who cos i know they have a nosey on her periodically!

I was really pleased that we were back to using 2 colours for the Colour Create challenge ... 4 is a bit extreme in my opinion .... not that, that counts for anything these days pmsl! Anyhow, I did thoroughly enjoy making this card and am dead pleased with the results.

Now the photo below is my injury that i acquired this morning ... being a woman and super organised and multi-tasking, i was getting all Rylee's birthday presents, cards and letters that we needed to post together to take with us. I had my handbag full of stuff on my shoulder and some of Rylee's presents in my left hand. With my right hand i picked up the letters to put in my handbag so used my left hand with a carrier bag full of pressies in to open my bag on my shoulder ..... big mistake .... Rylee's pressie containing his goal posts ended up poking in my eye .... ouch!

Why is it that a fab evening always has to end with some sort of drama? Last night we went out to our local pub for a meal and drink to celebrate Vicki's (my VBF) upcoming 40th birthday. It was a lovely evening .... my sis came with us, i thought it'd be nice for her to get out and have a little fun what with recent Beth events. Although since her return earlier in the week, progess had been made. It couldn't last though could it? My sis got home to find that Beth hadn't been and watered my Dad's greenhouse and taken the shopping down there as she'd promised to do! Chris phoned Beth 13 times and text her 6 times asking her to come home and bring my parents key back so that she could go and do it herself .... nothing! Well nothing until 11.40pm when the keys were posted through the letterbox! My sis went outside to have a word with Beth, but she was just going into the neighbours house across the road and either didn't hear my sis shout her or chose to ignore her. Beth had parked her car across the road at the bottom of my street. There were 4 lads in the car, the doors were open on it and music bellowing out of it. My sis did no more than run across the road and get in the drivers seat .... she refused to move when Beth came to the car and eventually got the keys off her again! The lads were turfed out of the car and the car is now parked in the yard with the gate padlocked with a heavy duty lock and all 3 keys in Chris's possession! Beth went off in a strop with the boys and at 1.15am was still not home! So yet again it looks like we're in for another eventful weekend .... its Rylee's birthday party on Sunday and at some point i need to make a balloon arch ... i'm hoping that Fae has forgotten about it to be honest lol! Wish me luck pmsl!

Well that's what weeks challenge is all about ...
You can really indulge yourselves here - use anything you want as long as there is something favourite of yours on there. So it could be a stamp, or your fave colour combi or papers. Or all of them put together.

BUTTONS AND BOWS
That is it - you can be as creative as you like, make anything you like, but it must have BUTTONS AND BOWS on it - the more the merrier!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was looking through my image box and found this gorgeous Sarah Kay that one of you lovely ladies sent me (as usual i can't remember who), but i think she's absolutely adorable and the only one i have!
I'm sat here listening to Rylee and Andy playing on the PS1 lol .... Rylee desperately wanted to play on his Pop's Wii this morning and no matter how cute he looked or how much fuss he kicked up, it wasn't happening! I suggested Andy set up the PS1 on our telly in the bedroom cos its surplus to requirements and it doesn't really matter if it gets broken. Rylee thinks its fab and i'm sure Andy does too, cos he snook upstairs with Rylee, saying they needed the loo lol ... in all fairness Rylee has started potty training last Wednesday and we've only had a few accidents ... just the one today! All i can hear is a police siren and lots of shouting and screaming. At least it gives me chance to have a little crafting time.
Ellie phoned today and has text on numerous occasions lol ... her and Tilda got up at 9 this morning and sat on the balcony and had tea and toast! When she rang she was sat in a bar, wearing a bikini, drinking Sangria! She had to rub it in and say how hot it was and that they couldn't bare to walk on the sand it was sooo hot!
Beth came home last night, after her 3 nights away ... she still brought her attitude home with her and promptly told her Mum as she left this morning for work, that she would be home tonight, but not until she was ready! What do you say to that? I'd really appreciate it if some of you could make a card for my sis ... she feel rather alone on this one and i'm sure they'd cheer her up no end!
