Cupcakes + Shopping =

a lovely day out!

My lovely Mum & I went to town yesterday for a belated birthday day out for me. We started off our day at this lovely colourful place and this is what we devoured...mmmm!!

Triple Chocolate

Deep Dark Chocolate Orange and Chilli

Although they were lovely, they were a bit on the dry side and if I do say so myself, mine are much more delicious! In fact I'm off to make some Easter Cupcakes :)

Also I couldn't resist taking a piccie of this: A Cupcake in a Teacup!

We ended the day with watching this:

I have to say that I really enjoyed watching it, loved the 3D aspect of it.

The lovely spring weather we are having today has made me have a spring clean of my blog and I made a new blog header :O)

Ok, who stole the time?

I can't believe where the last 6 months have gone!!??!! Christmas was a busy time of year for us, away for New Year then planning for my BIG 3-OH birthday party (which still hasn't happened) then just before my birthday my mum quite seriously ill in the beginning of Jan and it really has been one thing after another and it took it's tole on me, I've been off sick the last week with a horrible flu thing. Anyway the other week I set down to make this:

My FIRST Bind-it-all album!!! I've had my BIA for a couple of years but could never get to grips with it but I set down and had a play.

I remembered seeing a post years ago about a memory jar & journal on and thought this was the perfect thing to make for my Mum for Mother's Day. The reason being she had a seizure and she lost her memory for a while (fully re-gained now, thank you Lord!) You fill the jar with little questions regarding their life and they write it down in the journal, e.g. things about their wedding, their years growing up, favourite school subjects etc...
The best thing is I shall be able to look through the journal in later years and have something special!

Here's the card that went along with it, the papers used is the name of my mum :)

Thanks for popping by :)

Aaarrrrgghh where has time gone?

Sorry bloggers that I haven't been blogging, life has been very busy. I'm taking 2 photography courses as well as other things.

I have a few cards that I have made in the last month that I have been meaning to share with you.

First up is a Golden Wedding Card for friends of ours.

I had a go at stitching on card using my little sewing machine and I'm very pleased with my 1st go. I'm sooo not a sewer but think this has prompted me to have a go at making over things with it.

Next card was a birthday card for a for a lovely lady in a Birthday Club that I belong to on Crafts by Carolyn

And the last card I want to show you is an engagement card that I was commissioned to make from a friend at work.

Please note that there is a 20% discount on DewDrop Craftz Digiz until midnight this Sunday (11th).
Discount is automatically applied in the basket too, so no code to remember

I will be back to show you some examples coloured in of the Digiz that are on offer so keep an eye out.

Back from the Emerald Isle

Got back yesterday from our holiday in Ireland. Not much of a holiday as my mum was quite poorly all the time we were there, I need a holiday to get over this one but relieved to have today off from work to just chill. We did manage a couple of trips out at the very end and one trip was to Cookstown to go and visit Doodle Craft, it was so lovely and full of lovely things. I bought a couple of stamps and a new trimmer.

While I was away Cleo Crafts have launched their new card making kit, visit the shop to see what's included.

Here is one of my cards made using the kit.

You can see more cards and instructions on how to make them here.

The Kits are priced at £9.99 plus £1 postage for subscribers... and subscribers will also get 10% off any website purchases! Please email any requests for more info to Louise at
