Techno techno techno techno!

Well we have had a rather fun few weeks with absolutely no phoneline or Internet connection in this house. Just great when you're working on your final dissertation! Never ever ever think going with Talktalk is a good idea......you would not believe the hassle we have had, it really is to long winded to go into, freakin idiots!!! However....the BT homehub is innnnnnnnn daaaaaaaaaa houuuuse so I'm happily up and running in cyber space once again. Happy days!

So, last of my assignments and dissertation handed in. Someone pass me some lighter fluid so I can burn my guide to Harvard Referencing :) Just five exams next week stand between me and becoming a teacher :D whoop!

On to pretty stuff lol...Each month the Sarah's Cards blog runs a challenge with a £10 voucher to spend online at the shop as the prize. This month Rachel Ward has come up with a fun sketch and all you have to do is use it as inspiration for your page...... the full details can be found here along with some ideas from the rest of the Design Team. Here's what I came up with.....I'm still planning to add a few machine stitched swirls in too which I haven't got around to yet! I feel like it's lacking something and that might be the finishing touch. The pics are of miss Ellie "Scootin'" as she calls it, on the scooter that Santa left here for her last year :)

Speaking of Ellie, her best school friend became a big sister in the last few weeks, so I was asked to make a couple of cards. One was a personalised version of the Bambi card I did a few weeks ago, but I changed it up a bit. I swiss-dotted the background for a bit more texture (I felt like the last one was a bit plain in some sense and I think this made the difference), and changed the buntin ever so slightly. Happier with this version anyway. May need to make one in blue too - as one of my very best friends has just found out that it is a boy they are expecting in August :)So the new big sister needed a card to congratulate her on her new role too....so I made this using scraps I had left from the Christmas kit from Sarah's Cards.
TFL as always xxx
