Early Mothers Day!!!

Hi Everyone,

Today Im sharing my wee card thats just been published in Cardmaking and Papercraft. 

I saw a thing on Facebook a while back asking if your Mum was extra special and for what reasons and of course I said YES!!!!! I didnt think they would pick me but low and behold I got an email asking all about my situation. 

My parents are both fantastic as I really struggle at times with my illness and they are always there for me. So what  better way to show my gratitude than by sharing my thanks with the world!!! 
Here is a more recent piccy of Mum and I.  
 I used a ever so cute Tiddly Inks Digi Stamp and coloured her with my promarkers and specrtum Noirs. 
 Now Mums card isnt going to be a surprise this year but Im sure she loves the wee article in the mag :)   Thanks to Kirstie Sleigh for picking me for it,

Love and Sparkles,

Pink/ Purple or Butterflies...

 Good Morning and Happy Thursday to you all.

This week Wendy is our Hostess on MAWTT, shes picked the theme of Pink and or Purple and or ~Butterflies. I went for purple as Mum wanted a card for my Aunty Fee who loves everything purple!!! 
Its like a burst of Lili of the Valley on this card, Both the pre coloured image and the papers are both from the store there.  The sentiment is computer generated using a font called Cupid De Locke.

This week Ive been having a huge clearout of my drawers and wardrobe.  By heck I seem to accumulate loads of stuff from goodness knows where!!!   Im sure its avoidance though as I really really really need to sort out the crafty area but im so good at finding other things to do!!!

Hope you have a super week,

Love and Sparkles

Fav Telly Programme...

 Hi Everyone,

Its me who is Hostessing again on MAWTT this week, Ive picked the theme of Favourite Telly Programme. I decided to go for something not Doctor Who this time. (SHOCK HORROR) I have a HUGE amount of things I love to watch on tv and went for Sherlock!!! 

Card Recipe
6 x 6 Kraft CArd
Sherlock Mouse - 2 Cute Ink 
Coloured with Promarkers.
Papers Halloween from Stash
Font I am Sherlocked
My Fabby Mug from the BBC Store. 

Im a tad tired this week but I managed to pull up my big girl pants and go for my pre op assessment on Monday. Which then ended up as a 24 hour BP monitoring too!!! Haa put the scardy cat out of her comfort zone (home) and her BP goes a bit wonky!!! Ive not got a date for the wee op yet, I do know it will be in the next 12 weeks though as once you have had the assessment then its got to be within that timescale or I will need another one!! So the tooth will be out before summer!!! Mind you Ive been hoping the the tooth fairy who has had to visit twice this last week to see Tom would just accidentally take mine too!! No such luck though !!!

I would like to give as big wave to my newest followers, Thanks for joining in with the Mad world of Me!!! 

Thats all for today,

Sending Big Hugs to all,

Hazel xx

Hi Everyone,

WOW i cant believe its February already!!! Where is the year going too??? 

Im here this morning with the new challenge on MAWTT. This week we have a theme picked by me of Pastels.  

Ive gone for a fabby wee stamped image Ive had for ages. 

The card stock comes from a wee box of ready to make card things I bought about 7 years ago from QVC. Ive just been using wee bits at a time and not using all the elements. Its scary how much stuff I seem to have accumulated over the years!!! 

Card Recipe
A6 Card
Saturated Canary Stamp
Coloured with Promarkers.
Card and embellishments from QVC ( Kit Called Essential Card and Gift Set)  
Peel Off from stash
Stardust Stickles for highlights.

Oh My Goodness Ive done something really silly this week and Ive signed up to do a sponsored Dechox next month!!! Thats no chocolate for all of March!!!! 

So Im giving you all fair warning to stay away from the Grumpy Withdrawing Chocoholic who doesnt go a day without the stuff!!! LOL  
Its all going to be in a worthy cause for The British Heart Foundation.  Feel Free to sponsor me HERE.

Thats all from me today. 

Love and Sparkles

Dies and Punches...

Good Morning

Its me back again!!! I hope you are having a great week and aren't too cold with this bad weather we seem to be getting. Theres been lots of snow here but as soon as it falls it seems to melt again. 

Im here today with my MAWTT card for this week. The theme is Dies and Punches and we would like them to be central to your creation. 
Ive gone for dies that I bought on ebay. I dont know who makes them though sorry.
I used a Thomas Kinkade stamp too as my window view. 

Im hoping that my yucky week is now over!! I have a terrible dental phobia (so bad I cant go!!!) I have a broken tooth that has got infected so needed to see a Dentist! Now any normal person would manage to go to a surgery but I get stuck at the door due to the fear!! ARGH!!! So im gonna end up going to the hospital for a wee sleep to get the tooth out. (another issue with my agoraphobia!!!) The lovely Dentist came to the house to see me on Monday. Its been a very difficult and stressful week.  Lots of tears and facing massive fears!!! 
Fingers crossed that its done soon and I don't need to worry for too long!! 

Love and Sparkles
Hazel xx
