winner, castle and cards

Hi Cyber buddies
I hope you're well and happy and not too soggy from this 'lovely' spring weather!!

Did you all enjoy the Banana Frog blog hop? I loved all the other froglets inspirations and am proud to work alongside such a talented bunch of girls! Thankyou for all your lovely comments and welcome to all my lovely new followers :) With that said and without further ado I am here to announce the winner of my 'I've got a brand new blog' giveaway ... drum roll please! ..... it's Mustavcoffee Please can you email me (addy on my profile) your address and your box of goodies will be winging it's way to you :)

It's been a busy week again, as I said in a previous post we were away at the weekend for 2 funerals and a 21st birthday. All very emotional and lots of travelling and Stan's first road trip!!! He was a perfect doggy though and I was so very proud of him. I will get the pictures ready to show you of his trip to the stream with his 2 new best friends Maisy and Martha ... HILARIOUS!!!

Moving on, I've been on catch up with myself and been a crafting fool ... just for a change and also trying to catch up on sleep and put the house straight after the recent mayhem! A lovely email really lifted my spirits though the other day and I must share. It came from a happy customer who has purchased some of my DIY projects recently and she sent me these fabulous pictures of her finished Princess fairy castle. I love her interpretation and it really made me smile.

Becky thanks for sharing and also for directing me to Hubby's website Craftaholicsupplies .... too many goodies to tempt me :)

Looking back over my posts I realise, not only do I use too many exclamation marks!!! but I am very good at telling you I've done this and that and promising to share pics .... then never doing it! So I am on catch up with some past projects :) For this post I will share some of my cards that I made for Creative Expressions and the lovely Sheena Douglass to take on Create and Craft. They are made with the new spellbinders borderbilities and of course lots of distress ink, cosmic shimmer paints and Sheenas fab stamps.....
These are my favourites ....

This one is done with spellbinders XL scalloped rectangles

Now I feel like I don't keep lying to you LOL!!!
I guess I better stop waffling now but before I go I have a quick

And Finally...

Stan on his first river trip, you can just see Martha making good her escape and that's Maisy smiling at the camera!

Stan was soooo exhausted after his road trip LOL

As always thanks for stopping by and I'll *see you* soon so until then Happy Crafting
