I've been tagged! Twice!!!

OK, I've now been tagged twice, so had better do it now!!! Once by Vicky and again by Heather!!!

I have to answer the same 5 questions that she had to answer and then tag 3 people myself, right? So here goes...
1. Ten years ago... I was young, free and single, enjoying life, changed my ZZR250 to a CBR600, and had lots of fun riding around being reckless!!!
2. 5 things in today's to do list... finish cutting the grass - I've done half, just the other half to do!!! (It started raining). Re-build Isaac's train set that I spent ages making, only for him to pull apart and now nag me to rebuild. Make tea. Put the kids to bed. Wait for hubby to get home, and then sit and watch mindless tv with a drink!!
3. Snacks I enjoy... Kettle chips, veg crisps, marmite on toast, star bars, parma violets!!! To name but a few!
4. Things I would do if I were a millionaire... umm, buy my friend Emma a little house of her own, get my parents that car they are after, go on holiday, too many things to write!!
5. Places I have lived... Bromley, Kent, Crediton, Devon, Exeter & Exmouth.
So now I have to tag 3 people, who are: ummm, (sorry if you've been tagged before), Deena (Necessary Creativity), Jacquie (After Hours Stamper) and Kes (Keskards Kreations).

Cute Card Thursday Challenge 12

I missed last week, but liked the sketch, so I used last weeks sketch with some patterned paper!! Hope you like it!

Kids having fun ...

So here I am, all excited to receive a parcel of goodies from Stampin' Up, and so I go into the den, closely followed by my two intrepid explorers, and the results... they got hold of some paint, did some nice handprints!!!

SBS18 Challenge #3 & Paper Take Weekly Challenge

Thought I'd make this card for both challenges, and I'm going to give it to my dad for father's day.

~*~ 21 ~*~ That Torn it....

Another rushed job - I just don't seem to be able to spend any proper time cardmaking at the moment !! :-(

Tilda & Co beaded card

this is a very quick and simple card, after a vodka (should I admit to that!!??), I received my very first batch of magnolia stamps through the post yesterday and am loving using them, so are my two children (good for them, not for me!!!). Hope you like it ...

Simply Elegant 40th Card

Another card made using Simply Elegant products. It's for a friend's 40th birthday this weekend. Is it looking elegant enough!!???
Oh, I forgot to mention - the greeting has been embossed with chocolate scented embossing powder so it also smells rather nice!!!

Papertake Weekly Challenge

This is my first attempt at a sketch challenge, made while trying to amuse my 3 yr old, so not as much time put into it as I would have liked.

Cardmaking on a Budget!!

I went to my local shop today and spent a whole £12.50 on the products in the photo!! Wowee!
I got the Simply Elegant papers which I really like the colours, vellum, ribbon, stamps and a magazine with free matching stickers. I was quite pleased with my lot!
I'm always a bit frugal, and don't like spending all that much on products, so check back in a few days and see what I've managed to come up with!!! If anyone has any ideas, then please let me know!!

Wallpaper card !!!

This is another quick (and cheap) card. It is made using wallpaper, some punched flowers, a tag, brad and ribbon. I think it's really effective, and am very pleased with it. What do you think??

Tag card with eyelets, brads and flowers

This is a card made using lots of little tags, doodlebug rub-ons and other bits and pieces that I've had lying around not doing anything - flower eyelets, bug brads, silver cord, little flowers etc. I'm really pleased with the result!!

Cheer's Dad

A father's day card made using beer stamp, hippie chick die cut alphabets and Woodware Clear Magic Tiny Greetings stamps with "manly" (!!) paper!

Penny Black Hedgehog in Bag Card

Just a quick card I made using Penny Black hedgehog stamp, pink paper, ribbon and Stampin' Up greeting stamp.
