MAWTT Reminder... Some Exciting News... and a Thank You!

Hello! Well I feel a bit like the White Rabbit this week... I am behind with so many things... I had a hospital appointment on Monday... it went fine... but it has made me SO tired.... can't describe how much it has put me back with doing just routine things....

Anyway... enough wittering else I will never catch up will I!! ... I am here to say a few things... Firstly a reminder... I am hosting this fortnight's challenge over at


the theme is .....'Summer'- it doesn't have to be a card.. and you can enter up to 3 times! and closing date is 8pm Wednesday 15th August 2012... so you still have plenty of time to enter.. the entries so far have been fantastic!! 

My exciting news... well it is for me!! the Editor of Papercraft Inspirations contacted me a  few weeks ago and asked if she could feature one of my cards in their magazine!! Well of course I said yes I would be delighted!!! the card is this one.... and you can see more details about it on my original post here...


and here is the card in this months Papercraft Inspirations magazine... the little one top left! It's in the September Issue - I've just bought a copy and it's got a nice free gift of decoupage kit and scissors! Also a Masterclass on Pan Pastels.. something I've wanted to look into...


My blog was also mentioned on their website... Issue 103's Beautiful Blogs...

So would like to say Big Thank You! to Papercraft Inspirations for featuring me!! 

I would also like to say Thank You to Gloria who nominated me for the Leibster Award!! 


Thank you hun!! so kind of you to honour me with this award... I would like to pass it on to all my wonderful followers... !!! I must organise a little candy soon... it is getting near my 2nd BlogAversary! I really can't believe it will be two whole years at end of September!!! so I will have to do some candy to celebrate next month! 

I'm really sorry that I haven't got around to visit everybody this week... I will try and catch up in the next few days.. and I will be back very soon with a new card.... !!!
Love and Hugs
