Early Mothers Day!!!

Hi Everyone,

Today Im sharing my wee card thats just been published in Cardmaking and Papercraft. 

I saw a thing on Facebook a while back asking if your Mum was extra special and for what reasons and of course I said YES!!!!! I didnt think they would pick me but low and behold I got an email asking all about my situation. 

My parents are both fantastic as I really struggle at times with my illness and they are always there for me. So what  better way to show my gratitude than by sharing my thanks with the world!!! 
Here is a more recent piccy of Mum and I.  
 I used a ever so cute Tiddly Inks Digi Stamp and coloured her with my promarkers and specrtum Noirs. 
 Now Mums card isnt going to be a surprise this year but Im sure she loves the wee article in the mag :)   Thanks to Kirstie Sleigh for picking me for it,

Love and Sparkles,

Pink/ Purple or Butterflies...

 Good Morning and Happy Thursday to you all.

This week Wendy is our Hostess on MAWTT, shes picked the theme of Pink and or Purple and or ~Butterflies. I went for purple as Mum wanted a card for my Aunty Fee who loves everything purple!!! 
Its like a burst of Lili of the Valley on this card, Both the pre coloured image and the papers are both from the store there.  The sentiment is computer generated using a font called Cupid De Locke.

This week Ive been having a huge clearout of my drawers and wardrobe.  By heck I seem to accumulate loads of stuff from goodness knows where!!!   Im sure its avoidance though as I really really really need to sort out the crafty area but im so good at finding other things to do!!!

Hope you have a super week,

Love and Sparkles

Fav Telly Programme...

 Hi Everyone,

Its me who is Hostessing again on MAWTT this week, Ive picked the theme of Favourite Telly Programme. I decided to go for something not Doctor Who this time. (SHOCK HORROR) I have a HUGE amount of things I love to watch on tv and went for Sherlock!!! 

Card Recipe
6 x 6 Kraft CArd
Sherlock Mouse - 2 Cute Ink 
Coloured with Promarkers.
Papers Halloween from Stash
Font I am Sherlocked
My Fabby Mug from the BBC Store. 

Im a tad tired this week but I managed to pull up my big girl pants and go for my pre op assessment on Monday. Which then ended up as a 24 hour BP monitoring too!!! Haa put the scardy cat out of her comfort zone (home) and her BP goes a bit wonky!!! Ive not got a date for the wee op yet, I do know it will be in the next 12 weeks though as once you have had the assessment then its got to be within that timescale or I will need another one!! So the tooth will be out before summer!!! Mind you Ive been hoping the the tooth fairy who has had to visit twice this last week to see Tom would just accidentally take mine too!! No such luck though !!!

I would like to give as big wave to my newest followers, Thanks for joining in with the Mad world of Me!!! 

Thats all for today,

Sending Big Hugs to all,

Hazel xx
