I am really honoured to have been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award and would like to thank Wendy for thinking of me, thanks for all the lovely comments you leave on my blog too.

The Liebster Blog Award is used to show appreciation of smaller blogs (under 200 followers) and to help spread readership and joy.

As part of the tradition the award is to be passed along to five other blogs that have motivated and inspired me.

The name comes from the German meaning Dearest or Beloved, but can also mean Favourite.

To accept this Award you must:

1.  Link back to the person's blog who gave it to you, and thank them.

2.  Post on your blog.

3.  Give to five other Bloggers who you appreciate and value.

4. Leave a comment on the five blogs you choose and let them know.

It is so nice to have received this award and it is one of the hardest things I have done recently (apart from the Frist Aid Course last Monday!) choosing just five, but here they are in no particular order:

I love visiting your blogs to see what you have all been up to and really appreciate all your comments on mine.  I hope you will accept this award.

Hubby's Valentine Card

Well I got through the First Aid course today, don't know how but all I can say is I'm glad it is over with and hope I will never have to use any of it, because I don't think I would remember what to do!

I made this card for my Hubby for Valentines Day.  I used Pink Petticoat Gingham papers.  Digi image and sentiment from Digi Stamp Boutique. MS punch for hearts and coloured with Copics.

Have a lovely evening and thanks for looking.

Remembering my Nan

Good Evening, I just wanted to share with you a card I made to remember my Nan who passed away 14 years ago today.  We visited the Crem this morning and left flowers and a card.  There is a lovely room where we have a plaque on the wall and can leave flowers and view the Memorial Book.

Thanks for looking. Tinaxx

New Baby

I have made this card for one of my neighbours.  Baby isn't born yet, but she knows she is having a little girl, so I thought I would make it in advance for a change!

I have used Nitwit papers, Digi image from Digi Stamp Boutique, flowers made with punches, sentiment created on computer.

Thanks for looking. I really do appreciate any comments  you leave.


Birthday Card

This  card was made for the daughter of one of my crafting buddies at Bristol. I used Stamping Up  card and papers and coloured the image with copics.. Sentiment was created on the computer.
Good afternoon everyone, hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far.

I have had a lovely week off but it has gone way too quick. I'm back to school on Monday and I'm really not looking forward to it as we have a staff training day and I have to attend a first aid course yuk!  I don't do blood and guts and really don't know how I am going to get through the day.

I had a fab time at the Bristol Playday last weekend, lots of fun and noise!  Everyone makes you feel so welcome, so if  you are ever in the area on the 2nd Sunday of the month (details are always posted on Do Crafts chat) then please sign up.  

I have three cards to post today, so here is the first one. This was for one of my crafting Buddies at Acorns Craft Club.

Thanks for looking and all comments are very much appreciated.

Good Evening, it's Friday and I have a week off as it is half term!

Welcome to my new followers and thank you to everyone who left comments on my last card.

I'm off to Bristol tomorrow ready for the Bristol Playday on Sunday, really looking forward to seeing everyone again as I haven't been able to go since November. If I don't get round to visiting your blog this weekend I will catch up early next week.

Now for my cards....

I have used Nitwit Papers for both of these cards. Sentiments were printed on the computer.  The image is from the Cupcake Collection at Digi Stamp Boutique and coloured with copics.

Thanks for looking, have a fab weekend and I'll catch up with you soon.

Afternoon everyone on this cold snowy day.  I'm so glad I decided to go to the Bluewater Show yesterday, as I am not sure I would have made it today. One downside though, I had to miss a crafting day with my buddies. I have the Bristol Playday to look forward to next weekend though, so please, please, please no more snow!

Something very strange has happened to my blog this weekend, I have lots of links appeared on a couple of my posts.  They all link to "Crafty C's" blog.  Not sure who this is or why they are there.  I spent ages deleting them all last night, but they are all back again today.  Not sure if I have a setting wrong somewhere or Blogger has gone mad!  If anyone does know the answer to this, I would love to know.

On to my card now, I made this card for one of my DC Buddies, hope you like it. I used an LOTV stamp and coloured it with copics.

Thanks for looking and any comments you leave are very much appreciated.

Just Snoozing.......

Only 2 more days at work until the weekend!  It's so cold here, I hope it doesn't snow.  I'm really looking forward to a crafting day at Acorns Craft Club in Meopham on Saturday and then Bluewater Show on Sunday.

This card is for a friend who celebrated their Birthday yesterday.  I think the image is from Digi Stamp Boutique which I coloured with Copics.  Papers and coloured card are from Stampin Up.

Thanks for looking and any comments you leave me are very much appreciated..
