Knew it was too good to be true! Just as I was getting organised and back into the swing of things again I end up with cracked ribs and wonderful multicoloured bruising and grazes ( must have a word with Tim Holtz, there are some LOVELY colour combinations going on there that would make some fabulous distress inks!).
Fingers crossed I will get some crafting done this week, Ive bought so many gorgeous things lately that I am so desperate to play with its just not fair! - Right thats my rant over, hope to catch up soon.

Going to keep this fairly brief!
This week over at Polkadoodles our challenge was to make our own flowers and use them on a card or project, we could use any of the fantastic cd's from Nikky's range ( oh and you really MUST check out her new stamp range too - shes just too talented). The idea I had was so easy - in my head - getting it down on card and paper was just another matter, so I changed it entirely and made a bouquet of flowers for all my lovely team mates instead of a card! I used the Candy Doodles cd, wooden skewers, a ribbon some crystal drops and one of Nikkys sentiments,
Havent had the best of weeks, seem to have been running from one appointment or meeting to the next with hardly a moment to catch my breath. Was told this week that I needed to take medication for diabetes and other things and Im struggling to deal with it. Ive also had quite a nasty fall in the car park at school this afternoon and have possibly broken a rib or two along with skinned knees, hands and elbow and my dented pride I guess it was the perfect ending to a perfect week - just dont make me laugh IT HURTS!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and hope to see some of your takes on our latest challenge.

As the challenge over at Polkadoodles this week was to make Anything But A Card I tied it in with what I was making for some pupils at school - sticker reward books for achieving specific goals.
The hardest part of this challenge for me was actually deciding just WHICH papers etc to use from the Candy Doodles cd which is packed full of gorgeousness! So, a few ribbons, some distress ink and some crystal drops later - one book!
You really do have to check out the Polkadoodles blog in order to see what the rest of the design team came up with, you will be amazed.
Also, check out Create and Craft at 9.00am on September 15th when Nikky will be showcasing her brand new rubber stamps which complement the Jingle Jangle cd, I have seen them and you most definitely will not be disappointed.
Ive not blogged for a while, Ive had a lot of things happening in my personal life that have been difficult to deal with and blogging had to take a back seat. Ive also acquired another two retail outlets that wish to stock my cards so Ive been trying to make over 150 to add to the stock Ive given them - Im now just waiting for the cleaning fairies to come along and make sense of my craft room, they seem to have had problems with their sat nav as they havent turned up yet, hmmm.
