Ahoy there mateys!!

Well...what a rubbish blogger I have been over the last month...although I do have some excuses lol.. We (Sam and I) are going thru the adoption process at the minute so we have been working on that...and I have taken over as co-runner (is that a word???) of the Sweet stamping challenge blog with the bestest crafter in the whole galaxy...Faye (Fluff to her friends lol)...so keep your eyes peeled as there are some fabby new changes on there way!!!!

I also wanted to let you know about this fabby digi image that is for charity. A year or so ago a wonderful crafting friend (Crafty Emma) lost her dad... As the air ambulance helped out at this very difficult time she has 3 images that remind her of her dad...this is the newest:

He is soooo cute isn't he??
Well if you fancy this wonderful digi and want to raise some money for charity pop on over to the shop where you can see all 3 images here.

Now I actually have a card lol...

I purchased some of this crackle accents (also in the CES shop!!) and thought I would have ago...so here it is..



The papers are stamping up and basic grey
