Also, as I moderate the comments, if you put a comment on the candy, and you don't see it on the posting after a while, please don't worry, I will add it onto the candy post as soon as I have got internet. Pleaes don't duplicate your entries!

Thank you all for entering, and for all your lovely comments - and I will see you in a week(ish) time!!

Morning all!

Well it is VERY hot here in Abu Dhabi today - 42 deg c. Staying in!!

Since it was a hot day, thought I would show you a card that I made for my husband's aunty who loves doing her garden then lying in her hammock with a glass of vino when she is finished (she lives in Italy, so she has nice weather!!).


  • Flowers for Poundland (huge flowers I pulled apart)
  • Brads from Dovecraft
  • Papers from ebay
Also, just wanted to say WOW - I never expected to get so many followers after putting on my blog candy, I am seriously shocked!! Thank you so much for following me, and once my craft stuff is off the ship, I shall start making cards etc that I am really proud of to start showing you.

Hugs to all

Charisma Cardz Challenge #31 - SKETCH

Morning all!

Yep, its Thursday which means it's another fab challenge from Charisma Cardz Challenge.

This week it was down to our fabulous Sally to create the sketch. She came up with a fab one :

Our Sponser this week is:

Simon Says Stamps

They are offering the winner a $20 voucher for their shop, it's full of amazing products some of which you can't get in the UK so hop on over for a browse and choose what you'd like if you do win this week!

Here is my take on the sketch


  • Daisy & Dandylion decopage set and papers
  • Gems from stash
  • Ribbon from ebay
Never did decoupage before, and this isn't usually my kinda card, but I think it looks quite sweet!

Would love to see you over there at the challenge.

I love these Feet!

Morning all!

Well the sandstorm is still going on here in Abu Dhabi - apparently its going to be going later today hopefully! I miss my view!

Anyway, as I can't craft, I thought I would put some cards on here that I made before the move - there are quite a few so will be spreading them over the next week or so.

This one I made for my friend that wanted a card for triplets - but didn't want it 'slushy' as she put it, but it had to be modern..!!

She loved it thankfully, and I love the little feet!


  • A6 blank card from Dovecraft
  • Flatback gems from Hobbeycraft
  • Gorgeous glitter silver card from a shop in Bluewater
  • Silver ribbon from Ebay
Thanks for stopping by - hope you have a lovely day!
