Bet you thought I wasn't coming back lol I've had a wonderful christmas with my family (although the flu tried to spoil it for us we didn't allow it!) Our dear Daughter and her family were here from America and we just loved having them with us, lots of cuddles from the Grandsons too.
Well its here, New Year is nearly upon us and I've been thinking of new year resolutions, one is definitely not to neglect my blog and another one I must not spend unless absolutely necessary! (wonder how long that one will last lol)
Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR and see you all again very soon.
Love & Best Wishes Teresa xx

Thankyou for any comments you may wish to leave.

Hello my dear blogging friends, just popped by to clear away the cobwebs again and upload a card, its been a while since I've been here, I'm afraid thats docrafts for you, very addictive!
This card I made using the Tim Holtz papers (again) I love this stamp and don't use it often enough, I used the Magnolia Doohicky doily die and a swirly stamp made byK&Co, lace is from quixotic. Hope you like my card.
I wil try to be a better blogger and come by here more often, I will also make an effort to visit your blogs tomorrow when I have a little more time. Have a good weekend all. Love Teresa xx
These Hanglar stamps are fab, I love colouring them but poor tilda is feeling a bit neglected so I'll post two cards lol. I've had a very enjoyable day today crafting, I made three cards in total but I need to take photos of those so here's my last couple. Hope you like them. Teresa xx
I've been a busy bee today and made 3 cards, this one is another Hanglar card, I'm loving these stamps so much and I must say I got my inspiration from 'All the things I love by Bev' I think her blog is amazing!
Just wanted to add that on my last post below I had a comment that I published but when I looked it wasn't there for some reason, it was from an anonymous person, it was a lovely comment but I've no idea what happend to it, anyway the reason I mention it is because you asked where I get the small doilies from, well I bought mine from Joanna Sheen and the heart shape ones from Hobbyhouse. Thank you to anyone who leaves a comment here. Teresa xx
Hi everyone, Just wanted to share with you my very proud day today, I recieved my Magnolia Ink Magazine this morning and being a bit rushed for time I just had a quick flick through and left it, my dear friend Sarah on dc pointed out later in the day to me that my cards were published inside, I'm still on cloud 9 thrilled to bits, its my favourite mag and I'm thrilled to have my cards in it. Just hope I can sleep tonight lol. Teresa xx
This is my second Hanglar card, I'm falling in love with these dear characters as much as I have with Tilda, they are such a joy to colour, not that I'm brilliant at colouring by any means but I enjoyed colouring them. I used Magnolia papers, lace from Craft Obsessions and flowers are magnolia and roses from Michaels, I added stickles glitter to the edges of the papers. Not forgetting my new pretty watermark of course, (I love it) Hope you like it. xx
Hiya dear blogging friends, Yes I know it was a few weeks ago I made this one but its one of my favourites and I wanted to blog it! It won't be long till Halloween is here, my two little Grandchildren will be getting some Cadburys chocolate from me as I know they miss it, (living in the U.S.)
Onto the card, its;
~Tilda & Edwin stamp 'Brotherly love'
~ Magnolia papers
~ Tim Holtz metal corner & distress ink
~ Wildorchid roses
~Magnolia Doohicky swirls & leaf
~stickles star dust
~ cobweb bits, pearls, brads & ribbons from stash
Thank you for looking and for any comments you may wish to leave, hugs Teresa xx

Hello my dear blogging friends, I wanted to add this card, because its rare for me to actually be happy with one of my cards, but I stood back and felt a bit proud of this one lol, Its the very pretty Farewell Tilda, my husband bought me this beautiful blue ribbon and I loved it so much I just felt inspired by it to make this card, I did at first use a pretty paper clip on the Tim Holtz ticket then changed my mind for a sunflower stamp instead and I think it looks better. Hope you like it. Teresa xx

Hiya folks, well I am in a happy mood today, firstly I got the job I was interviewed for on Wednesday, yippy! and I actually like the way my cards turned out today, maybe its because I'm in a happy state of mind.
