Popcorn set – Anything goes over at PFP


I made this card and little bag filled with notelets from a Crafter’s Companion Popcorn Floral CD. I love Popcorn! I made this for my friend Jacqui.

The image on the front of the card was stamped using the Popcorn Thinking of You rubber stamp set. Coloured with ProMarkers. (I really must write down the colours I use, even though they don’t match the printed image, lol)

Head on over to Passion for ProMarkers for this weeks Anything Goes challenge.

Possibility by Lykke Li (New Moon Soundtrack) - lyrics (PL)

I have gone Twilight MENTAL!! I started reading Twilight a couple of weeks ago, put the book down when I was about a quarter of the way through, then picked it up again. I finished the book in about 4 days, then read New Moon in just 24 hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm now reading Eclipse. I can't get enough of it!!! I didn't think it would be my kind of thing... vampires, lol, but it's a love story, and they don't have fangs, so it's not your normal vampire type of thing. I'm addicted!!!
The song above is a gorgeous song from New Moon where Edward has left Bella and she's suffering from depression. Love it! Not that Bella has depression, the song!!!

ATC’s for Swap-Bot

The Hedgehog ATC is for a swap about Hedgehogs, lol… a Hedgemog as they’re now called since Jacqui sent me a text with a spelling mistake. I’m into making ATC’s again now, not made any for ages!!

Click here to join in with swapping at Swapbot.

Hedgemog ATC for SwapBot

My little girlie ATC's for SwapBot  The ATC’s above are for a swap with a free theme. Two cards are to be sent to 3 people. I had a lot of fun making these. I used chalks for the backgrounds, and ProMarkers for the little girls, and lots of glitter! I also dug out my old lacquer glossy tube things as well.

Just in case you’re wondering about the diet… I lost another 2 and a half pounds last week, so new total is 1 stone and 2.5lbs, woohooooooooo! I weigh again in the morning, but I’ve got a feeling there won’t be much of a loss this week.

Little Elijah, a little ted, and a little bit creepy!

Here’s little Elijah from a couple of weeks ago playing with his Hungry Caterpillar. He’s always such a happy little thing. I shall have to take a photo of him on the odd occasion when he’s grizzly… but that’s difficult, he only ever seems to grumble a little bit when he’s tired, and that’s it!

Yesterday afternoon sometime, I was lying on the bed waiting for Matthew to finish doing something and I was thinking about the heavy portable telly that’s in our room sitting on a wall bracket. It’s been there for about a year and a half quite happily. I was wondering where it would fall should the bracket snap or something.

Matthew went to bed after Darryl & Co left at 9.30pm. I started to watch Ladies of Letters on Catch up TV about 10pm. All of a sudden there was an almighty bang upstairs and Matthew started yelling. We ran upstairs and at first couldn’t find what would have caused such a racket. Matthew went into our bedroom and our telly was lodged between the bed and the wall… there was my answer, that’s where it would fall!!! Blimey! The whole bracket had come out of the wall complete with it’s little plug thingies that the screws go into inside the wall.
