I can't believe I forgot!!

But I did!! I should have added into my post that Beverley is offering some RAK's over on her blog!! So get over and check it out, the fun part is the question! "If you had £200 that MUST be spent on craft goodies - what would you buy & why?"
Certainly made me think!! But in the end I said "Can I cheat and say I'd spend £200 on a boys weekend away for my DH so I could scrap in peace!!
Seriously though, I would probably go for that pink crop-a-dile set you are selling!! And whatevers left on whatever catches my eye!"
But you only have til 7am tomorrow morning to get on over there so get a move on!!!

Playing catch up!!

I'm a bit behind on the HS:MS prompts, I'm not too worried about the weekend but here's todays and yesterdays.

Todays prompt is MOONLIGHT, and this pic is a bit of a cheat, I took this during October, at a local lake of the moon just starting to come up!!

Yesterdays prompt, was FROST, and try as I might, I could not get the picture I wanted, this was the best of a bad lot, I wanted to show the top of my car (now written off!!) with all those beautiful frost patterns on it, but frost and silver cars do not make for the best photo!!

Better late than never!! CELEBRATE!!!!

OK, quick pic, I hate being late and what with one thing and another I haven't been able to get online all day!!! So her's my cause to celebrate, I won £3!! On the downside I paid £3, but hey I didn't lose money!!! I think my best win on these stoopid things was £50, I've had 2 £48's and a few £20's, but I do better on these that the actual lottery! And it's a bit harmless fun!!

Cards in your space today!!

I am such a donut!! I completed my LO in the acetate album, packaged it up and posted it without taking one picture!!! DOH!
Anyway, here's card in my space today!I just love all the decorated envelopes, although I have to confess the plain envelope in this pic was actually a bill! GRRR! DH thought I was nuts taking pictures of the post as it stuck in the letterbox!!

And, I had to add this picture in as well, I got it in my advent swap last night, and its gorgeous, it's a piece of cardstock by DCWV "Fairy Print", it is so pretty, only prob is I'm going to be too scared to use it, and I just know it's going to end up in my stroking pile!! But I promise I will try and use it!!

And finally for today, another CJ entry, which this time I have remembered to take pictures of!! This one is "All About You" and belongs to Paddy on UKS, it's lovely and very pretty. I did my LO last night and I love it, for once I am looking at what I've done and I am 100% happy with it! Now that is an achievement!!
Apologies for the dodgy pics, but I just popped them on the floor and snapped them while the light was good, it's miserable and grey outside and pouring with rain!! The perfect day to get some scrapping done but I'll probably end up doing housework!!

It's Christmas in my space!!!

Remember "Stash Bear" from Monday?? Well here he is again in his Christmas attire!! Aaaahh! I did consider putting him in for every pic this week but he didn't fancy climbing in the fridge in the name of art!! LOL!
I recieved the most fabulous CJ today it's an acetate album, and its absolutely amazing, already started on my entry so will upload it when I am finished! I now HAVE to make one of these.
Anyhow, got to go, my fridge is looking empty enough to fit a bear in!! And at some point in the day we will need to eat!

Back again, and as promised a LO that has taken me hours!! Literally!! Well not the LO but the parchment frame, all the paper piercing and embossing is so time consuming but so worth the effort! This is a pic of my Mum and Dad's wedding back in 1975, so definately a day to celebrate!

I must make a point of uploading more of my parchments onto my blog!

Also a quickie card make, while I was waiting for the glue to dry on another project the other day, very simple!

And lastly, the best joke I have heard in ages!!
Two Indians and an Irishman were walking through the woods. All of a sudden one of the Indians ran up a hill to the mouth of a small cave.

"Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!" he called into the cave and listened closely until he heard an answering, Woooo! Wooooo! Woooooo! He then tore off his clothes and ran into the cave.

The Irishman was puzzled and asked the remaining Indian what it was all about, "Was the other Indian crazy or what?"
The Indian replied "No, It is our custom during mating season when Indian men see cave, they holler 'Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!' into the opening. If they get an answer back, it means there's a beautiful squaw in there waiting for us."

Just then they came upon another cave. The second Indian ran up to the cave, stopped, and hollered, Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!"
Immediately, there was the answer. "Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!" from deep inside. He also tore off his clothes and ran into the opening.

The Irishman wandered around in the woods alone for a while, and then spied a third large cave. As he looked in amazement at the size of the huge opening, he was thinking, "Hoo, man! Look at the size of this cave! It is bigger than those the Indians found. There must be some really big fine women in this cave!"

He stood in front of the opening and hollered with all his might, Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!"
Like the others, he then heard an answering call, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOOO!" With a gleam in his eye and a smile on his face, he raced into the cave, tearing off his clothes as he ran.

The following day, the headline of the local newspaper read.....

Get ready, (its good),

Show us CHILLY in your space today!

Now this IS chilly, especially when you have sensitive teeth!! But this ice-cream is gorgeous my favourite!! Got some crafty bits to upload later day!!! So watch this space!

Nice and Cosy in my space today!!!

Stash Bear (don't know what made me call him that but I did and it stuck!! If I'm snuggled up to him at night I am guaranteed to feel cosy!! Glad I didn't post him up last week, I was going to use him for SOFT!! Keep an eye out for him later in the week, he's going to make another appearance!!
Will pop back later and do a proper post!!

Bless his little heart!!!

For showing off today, a picture of an old friend of mine!
This is "Scruff"!! He spent all summer visiting our garden for his raisins every morning, we put up a blackbird box for him in the hope he might move in, he was such a little character, I would love to know why he was so scruffy. Anyway during some cold weather and rain he disappeared. :( BUT there is another blackbird out there now with a couple of feathers sticking up the wrong way, is it son of "Scruff"???

Self-Portrait Saturday

Well following last weeks LOVELY (a-hem) self portrait pic, I thought I would put up a nicer one, so here I am, I wish I looked like this everyday but the truth of the matter is, I just can't be bothered, I'm generally a no make-up girl, plain and simple so when I do dress up I feel really special!!
Today I am posting up the next challenge over on the CTYD Blog, so pop on over after 6pm and check it out, and don't forget there's monthly prizes for the best entries to the challenges!!
