MY TOP 5 and A Happy New Year!


I've never done this before so I thought I'd join in with the Top 5 cards of the year 2011
as shown on Debby's blog here
First card has to be Tilda because as you all know I'm addicted to colouring these little beauties!
This one got me in the top 5 at TOMIC so made me feel very proud, she's also the very first Tilda I bought...bet you already knew that :o)
2nd card I'm afraid is another Tilda, I just loved the way this one turned out

This was the first card I made for the Joanna Sheen blog and it bought in a few Christmas orders, I loved the vintage Santa and the red cardinal bird. 

Choosing a Sugar Nellie was extremely difficult I love them all.
but there was something about this one...probably the colours
Last but by no means least is this Whiff of Joy 'Coffee to go'
I love this stamp and the way the card turned out.


Well that's my Top 5 for 2011, I hope you like them.
Wishing you a Healthy & Happy 
Lots of Luv & hugs

Not cards but...my Sons artwork

Good evening all,
 I've been busy making DT cards but can't upload them until the appropriate dates, so I thought I'd share some of my Sons artwork with you, his name is Kieran and he's 18yrs old, I think he's very clever but then I'm a very proud mum lol
this first one he did a couple of years back for GCSE Art

and this one

This one he did in acrylics this year for A level Art
They are all so much better in the flesh (so to speak) I don't think photos do them justice but needless to say he passed his exams and we are proud...
...sshhhh! don't tell him I'm showing off his artwork!
See you tomorrow with one of those DT cards,
Luv, hugs & Merry Christmas
