Button Time... and Belle!!!

Hi Everyone,

Its time for another challenge with us on MAWTT. This week Debs is our Fabby Hostess with the theme of Button it. So we want to see buttons on your creations.  

Ive gone for this easy card with a Hunky Dorey Set that Ive used almost all of now!!! Sorry about the lighting the picture. Im trying to get to grips with a new camera and light box, As you can see I still need a lot of work to get my pics up to scratch!!!

Mind you heres one I took the other day. Love My Mrs Woofy Chops!!! 
Getting the hang of it, just!!!

Dies and Punches...

Good Morning

Its me back again!!! I hope you are having a great week and aren't too cold with this bad weather we seem to be getting. Theres been lots of snow here but as soon as it falls it seems to melt again. 

Im here today with my MAWTT card for this week. The theme is Dies and Punches and we would like them to be central to your creation. 
Ive gone for dies that I bought on ebay. I dont know who makes them though sorry.
I used a Thomas Kinkade stamp too as my window view. 

Im hoping that my yucky week is now over!! I have a terrible dental phobia (so bad I cant go!!!) I have a broken tooth that has got infected so needed to see a Dentist! Now any normal person would manage to go to a surgery but I get stuck at the door due to the fear!! ARGH!!! So im gonna end up going to the hospital for a wee sleep to get the tooth out. (another issue with my agoraphobia!!!) The lovely Dentist came to the house to see me on Monday. Its been a very difficult and stressful week.  Lots of tears and facing massive fears!!! 
Fingers crossed that its done soon and I don't need to worry for too long!!

Colouring in Time...

Hi Everyone,

SO the last few days haven't quite gone to plan so I have been colouring in lots to take away all my woes.

Over on the Kit and Clowder Facebook page I spotted a wee colouring competition and the best bit was you got the Fabby Image free!!!  
My photos dont quite do the card justice. New camera and new light tent still need lots of practice!!!
