I met up with the two most adoreable, friendly and thoughtful ladies today for coffee. I was flabbergasted with the generou gifts from Max which she gave myself, Ava and Josh a gift each....mine of course was thsi lovely massive bar of choclate! Far too kind of you Max! She gave Ava the most adoreable clothes set and Josh a wicked digger/tractor, Thanku so very much max this was far too generous of you!
Maggie so very kindly gave me the most beautiful papers using her cuttlebug and a lovely bunch of bargain flowers! Thanku very very very much for those darlin'!
I came home fter having a spontaneous morning coffee/tea with cake/bacon roll, walk around some shops then us ladies did Lunch too! Both maggie and max though were far too naughty for treating me to my tea and muffin and my lunc too but, I managed to squeeze in a few £ coins into maggies' purse! Was not having No! for an answer. So, as you can see we had a magnificent timeand Ithank them both so very much for their lovely company and friendship too!

I created this card for one of my many craft pen pals using the papers frm my recent order at the Craft Superstore. Really pleased with the results and look frward to hearing what she thinks of this card! I make all my cards for when I write to my pen pals you see as, it is something hat little bit different to just lined paper letters! I get so much enjoyment out of producing cards for no particular reason and to surprise the recipitant! The piccie abovethe bttom one is not so good but, you can just see! I had a bit of an accident though......As I was punching out a flower shape on the back of the card I got my punch stuck so, I cut off what I could, leaving about 5/6cm let to use on the double fold card I used. So, I punched out two small hearts on the two side panels and pulled and tied together with cerise satin ribbon. To my lovely surprsie this created a sunning curved edge to the card and created something unusual! Hope you like this card! x x x

After reading one of my recent magazine purchases, "Cardmaking & Papercrafts" I found an advertisement of Amy Butler Mini Book papers of her Belle and Sultry Collections and once I saw them and the £ of it I just had to go and purchase them both touse for my cardmaking. I was absolutely delighted to find that the postman delivered my Craft Superstore order to me this afternoon......the only let down is, Mr.Postman woke Ava up! I was not a happy bunny as you can well imagine! Anyway......Here and below are piccies of sme of the mouth watering papers.

Through the post, just 2 weeks ago, I received this surprising delightfull RAK (Random Act of Kindness) from the lovely friendly Maggie, whom just lives in the next town down from me and Max!
I honestly couldn't believe how lucky I was to receive suh a wonderful RAK. I look forward to getting my hand stuck into this cross stitch - which i'll do Avas' nursery room. Ava received a gorgeous ATC (below) and so did Josh too! Maggie! My two jewells send their thanx & cuddles....oh! & xxxxxs too!
Thanx for such a generous RAK!

Many of you CB Members were so very generous in creating the most wonderful and beautiful baby cards for the birth of my jewell of a daughter, Ava Brooke! This was soooo very touching of you all who sent a card, ATC and 3d gifts! We are all very much thankfull for these delightful creations and, now it is time to store them all to keep protected and safe. Ava will really appreciate these when she is older.
One of the baby cards we received from this cb forum is from the delightful fairyprincess! Don't you just love the embellishment???? I really like all the Pink and the overall design.
Thanku very much Sara!
I have made this RAK of an ATC for my good friend, Katy Jane! as a "Get Well" card. Yesterday, she text me to say that she had been rushed to a & e. I was panicking and ever so worried when I read her message so, thought it would be a lovely gesture to make her something! This ATC with two fairies is what I cm up with. The paper I got yesterday from The Works 80% sale and the felt letters I got in my Readers Gallery Prize . Very simple and cute I think. Love the finished look! I believe ktj shall like his as it is very much her colours and it is girly!
