A touch of Pink xx


Happy Sunday lovelies

I do hope this finds you all well? I'm on the mend after that flu just wouldn't shift! Been a busy week work and personal life, non-stop and lots of baking!

It was the SWI's (Scottish Women's Institute) 100th Birthday last year and this year was our Institutes 90th. We had a fab wee meal on Wednesday with some fab speeches, games and lots of stories from over the years. I made lots of cupcakes instead of one big cake so the ladies could take their individual one home and enjoy when they weren't so full after the yummy meal!


A fab night, lots of laughs and I was stuffed!!
Also this week was my mum's friend Diane's 50th Birthday! Sadly we couldn't make it to the party with Hubby still being ill but I did enjoy making her wee card!


I made a wee easel card using the stunning new digital stamp Happy New Year, Raise a Glass Girl from the fab Time for Tea Designs




I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noirs and the papers are First Edition Sweet Nothings and lots of glitter to make it all sparkle

I also baked again for Craft Club on Saturday where we made some paper bunting, had a good gossip and they enjoyed some yummy Lemon and Lime gooey Cupcakes

Well I'm off to finish some crochet and heat up by the fire, its so cold tonight and can see us getting the snow soon!

Take care and have a great week you lovely lot

I've been PUBLISHED woohoo xx

Good morning lovelies

Sorry its been a wee while since I posted but been hectic with work and then last week was just so SUPER exciting!

As you can see from the title, yes little me has been published!! Woohooooooo
After winning the contest this is my first publication in Papercraft Essentials! It has been amazing to see and it still doesn't feel real! 



Ekkk its just so exciting and as you can see I had some fun making some Easter makes, perfect for those who have family and friends over or just want to create a special gift for someone

Not only did the magazine come out last week it was my Birthday and we spent the day in Edinburgh, enjoying food and wandering around, having more food and then Dairy-free Fudge! Was a great wee day with hubby and I was spoiled rotten. 

Then, yes my fab week wasn't over, we enjoyed a wee over night on Friday at Glenskirlie Castle! Before going we went to Callander for a wee visit, got some lunch, dodged the rain and picked up some Birthday presents for my brother before driving to the castle.
Its a beautiful place and so easy to miss because of its location! If you ever looking for a special overnight its perfect! Princess style all the way! 







Back home Saturday, relaxing and walking the dog (don't worry our nephew puppy sat for us) then trying not to move too much with all the food we ate on Friday night lol! I'm so not used to 3 courses!!

Yesterday was spent gutting my craft room and slowly "playing" I mean moving my new bits in and rearranging it again to work for me! Why is it you always find new bits you've forgotten about or sat aside to hide from Hubby

Well, its back to work for me this week. A few more orders and allocations to finish, Mother's Cards and Gifts to make and even a Congratulations Exploding box! Ohhhh its busy busy again!

Before I go, here's a wee card I just loved making
