Time for some Fancy Folds and news xxx

Good morning my lovelies

Ohhhh where has the sun gone?
Mr Sunshine has disappeared from my wee part of Scotland but its still warm so not complaining! Well much heeee! How is it where you are? Still warm and sunny?

I meant to post this yesterday but the day just got away from me and before I knew it, was nearly 11pm! Do you have days like that?? Tho I did achieve lots and I even had some AMAZING NEWS, more on that later tho heee! Not that I like to tease you 

Now this fortnight at Dream Valley Challenge we have a great wee Challenge for you all, something for those who like a good "old Challenge" and one for people to "go on" and try some thing different


I made this wee Hot Air Balloon as a "card" for my Mother-in-laws Birthday! I like to make something different for her and this year was totally stumped, but came across this while browsing the good old "tinternet" and knew I had to give it a try!

The papers are Amy Tangerine and everything else is form my stash
I would like to enter the following Challenges

Now remember please follow our rules and you can be the lucky winner over at Dream Valley Challenges, check out the teams creations for some great inspiration!

Now did I mention good news??
Do you wanna know my lil secret?? Ok here it is


heeeeee Yes lil me is part of this!!

I couldn't believe it when I got the email as, I only put my name in at the last min and knew that Clare would receive 100s or even 1000s of amazing people applying! So when hubby shouted for me to check the emails, I almost fainted ekkkk!
I can't wait to get started and get my teeth into something, I've missed doing my DT stuff and now is the time for me to get back into it! Fingers crossed I do here and the team proud!

Speak soon, off for another happy dance lol

    BY the way, have you had a blog makeover since I last dropped by? I love the title at the top, but pray you don't have glitter in your jammies cos that could be scratchy!

    You go girl!!!
    Is there a tutorial you can steer me to? I would love to try my hand at this.
    Also that ferris wheel is amazing too!
    If you could add the tutorials (if it's someone elses)in your posts that would be awesome, or your own blurb on how you made it.
