Todays person is a lady called Sparkle and thats her real name ;0) How lovely eh? She is from Washington, USA and I think I found her from the Bella Forum on Splitcoast Stampers. Here is her blog link http://sparklecreations.blogspot.com/ She uses her copics beautifully and from the look of her blog header she got lots for Christmas ;0) I LOVE her card on 25th Decembers post with all those bellas and I love the little Scrap-lings on 20th December too... Maybe I ought to try one of these... I need to research a little more into what these are. So take a trip on over to Sparkles blog and take a moment to say how much you love her work (assuming you will too)
I have 2 cards made that I can share and I will get those done lately. Thats all for the plans so far, Mondays = Blogs that inspire me..... I might think of something else for other days... not sure right now. You may have noticed over on the right hand column I have added a section which will display news about specials, new stock and other shop related stuff from all the places I love so keep your eyes on this side part as it will change often.

Christmas this year will be a whole lot nicer than last. Of course I miss my Dad terribly still and always will. Mum is coming round for Christmas Day to enjoy the lunch and time with the boys and then round to my brothers for Boxing Day (a new traditional as usually it would have been Mum and Dads) and we are taking turns with this year being their turn.
Today we went to the local pet store to buy Milo a new harness and then we all went for a walk around the local lake and fed the ducks and swans, the boys and Milo had a blast! Then to Macdonalds for lunch and then back here home. Hubby was working today, he has just called to say he is on his way home. They finished at lunch time and have been in the pub for a few hours and then walked down to the town with my list of last minute must buys... we'll see how well he did with the list shortly. Glue for Harveys stocking is on the list as he has feathers, pom poms, pipe cleaners and all sorts of crafty kids bits and will need a tonne of glue! No doubt I will be made to share his creations with you all.
Right had better get on doing something. Take care and have a lovely one wont you?
I might get a card made today, I want to... I have 2 lovely stamps from www.pinkgemdesigns.blogspot.com

I am deciding wether to brave Sainsburys today... Darren is still in bed, he got in at 1am rather worse for wear and I left him in the chair downstairs with the dog and a quilt! He had is christmas do yesterday. I think I will wake him at lunch time and I'll will leave him with hangover and boys so I can brave the shops, I really just want to get it all done with now and then I can say its all done. Got the meat ect its just the veg and I am going for frozen, the question is do I have room in the freezer!?! I even started wrapping pressies last night... and I have all pressies apart from a little something I need for my nephew.

Aww look! Too cute eh?
I made these today... very simply, nothing special as I am sure the pots will be thrown once dogs have eaten treats. The one with blue paper is for Milo... then there is my brothers dog and then Poppy and Peaches next doors rotweilers... Poppy and Peaches sent Milo a card with a bone inside last week so we decided to return the favour ;0)
Had I been able to cover the pots nicer, ie they were pots that were the same size all round then I might have made more of an effort but the way these pots are you cant cover the whole of them as they go wonky. Also the lids were blue and this wasnt working with the three girly dogs! Pots are filled with layers of gravy bones, dog rolls (dont know what they are called) and doggy choc drops and topped with more gravy bones.

Another cute photo of him a teddy that he keeps taking off the table where the christmas tree is and it put it where it was to hide his "bits"... where the heck did those "Bits" come from? Almost over night LOL Bless him... you all know what those "Bits" also bring and as well as the boys throwing the cushions on the floor all day I now have the dog dragging his "girlfriends" LOL onto the floor.... a trip to the vets is in order for the new year to reduce those urges..
SU Points.... did you know I operate a points scheme. Reccomend a friend who orders from me and tells me it was YOU that sent her my way and you will earn 1 point, 1 point equals to £1 ;0) Not bad eh? My friend Julie has already earnt £6! Did you know that Julie??

Images are Magnolia, Whiff of joy and Penny Black
I do wish the cards were all the same as the top lot, I do prefer this one.
Photos are bad as the flash doesnt like the glossy cards. but they are cute eh? Not only saving me time but money too... 16 cards £2.49, I couldnt have made them for less and also I am really short on white cardstock so its saved me valuable resources.
End of school is near and I have made a cute book for Harveys teacher... here it is, also a small box of after dinner mints.
Cant shake off my cough, have had a cold for 2-3 weeks and it has left me with an annoyingly dry throat and at night it makes me cough and gasp, its like a tightening feeling in my throat, not fun. Poor Harvey seems to have it too and he is always coughing. Caiden is all chesty and rattly, a house of germs!

Friday 12th will be a hard day. Hard to believe it will be one year since I lost my wonderful Dad. I miss him so much. We have decided to put our decorations up on 12th for Dad, the kids will like the decorations and Mum and I can remember all the fun Christmasses we had together, all those turkeys, sprouts and pairs of slippers! Yes Dad asked for them every year from me, I used to protest "But its a boring present", he replied "maybe but I need them" LOL (Mum got slippers too... how very practical) talking slippers though I desperately need a pair too!!
Today I am working at The Glitter Pot, demoing with pencils.... oh what a hard life I have? having to sit and colour all day!! I never take things like this for granted, I know how lucky I am and you never do know how long it will last. already see the magazine work dropping off as they pick up new talents forgetting us that started with them with the magazines, but things change and grow and you have to accept that.
Harvey has just woken up so I had better go... speak later and I will be back with some cards (hopefully)

A simple card... not sure BIL is really into handmade cards... anyway here it is.
There are 6 dinosaurs in all, along with a Happy Birthday wording, the one used above, presents and cakes on their own and the dino greenery stamp too. It really is a great set to add to your collection.

This image is Matthieu & Arthur - drawn as a cat, but mistaken as a squirrel/skunk - you decide.. I think now I have coloured the cat in its looking more and more like a cat ;0) cute whatever it is.... I really love this design, totally different from anything out there and I love the SU sentiment with it. So glad we're friends is quiet fitting eh?
I've been spoiling you all lately with lots of cards, long may it continue.
Right for chatter..... SPIRAL WHISPER have some FAB new designs for January! I wish I could share them with you... tooooooo cute. Cant wait to get my mitts on them.
SUGAR NELLIE have just released some fab new and VERY different stamps, I cant wait to play with these and I cant wait to see other people using them too.
I will be sorting a few stamps out to sell later today... need to raise a few pennies for a few things off my stamp wish list ;0)
