for Lyndee on Docrafts - our monthly swap

this month I concentrated on backgrounds - must keep trying out a few more techniques as my work becomes very samey - and people will get bored.

swap with Angy B England

we do a bi monthly swap - but because of all the problems in December we did a January Swap and then this February (Valentines) swap - not swapping again until April when the theme will be Daffodils/tulips.  The Daffodils will bring back a lot of memories for me but that's another story for my blogging in April when I do the ATC's for Angy.

very shiny in real life
exceptionally Blingy (my kinda thingy) in real life.  Love it.

snowman inchies sent to Holland Swap - loved making these.

Rinchies on Docrafts swap

Night and Day or Day and night.

and doing the ATC and Inchie and Twinchie Advents swaps - been looking for ATC envelopes but the only ones I have found are Tim Holtz ones - very expensive - I must admit I am not that 'into' Tim Holtz stuff - very overpriced for what you get.  So been playing and come up with a template to make ATC envelopes and a smaller version to house Twinchies - and Inchies as the inchie version was just too small - it didn't look good.  Anyway I'm pleased with them and they're so cute !

Happy Birthday to me !

Lovely Birthday ......................

Birthday meal out at the Harvester Polesworth on Friday night with the Family. 

Out with Korin in Sutton on Saturday for 4 hours !!!  She bought me a Paperchase book - really don't know what to do with it but I love it !

Meal out with Korin for lunch - only at BHS but it was nice to be with her and relaxed and feeling happy.

Takeaway Curry on the night with DH.

AND because they weren't available locally (Tamworth or Sutton or Burton upon Trent) ordered these beauties for my Pandora Bracelet online - should be with me in a couple of days.

off hubby to remind me of my beautiful dog - Gunner who died 25.7.13 (I will always remember him anyway.

And a Guardian Angel Wings from my kids - think this is kinda beautiful and I do believe in angels etc.
So all in all it was a lovely day - thanks family.
