Pauline is celebrating her year of blogging with a fabulous candy, one of the ways to enter it is to link it on your blog otherwise I wouldn't be telling anyone but keeping it a secret so I can win it.
Talking about candy don't think my counter will wait till the weekend to hit 100,000 but look out next week after I've been to Newbury I'm sure I can find some goodies there.
There's a little chap who first birthday is coming up and the challenge on Stamp with fun is for Turquoise and brown colours and I found these papers not sure who by. I thought I would have a go at distressing with distress ink like Kim's tutorial but it looks like I overdid it a bit. I use the cricut to cut out the number and letters.
I've award from Clare which asked for 10 honest things about yourself will sort this out tomorrow.

My first problem was the shuttlecock, I had to mask it out then I couldn't find a tennis ball stamp so I had to make one. Then I wanted to use acetate for the inside of the rackets and thought maybe it would be too fiddly but it wasn't too bad. I had no problem choosing the papers the DCWV Latte pack have the perfect wimbledon colours.
Good Luck to Andy Murray and hope my son takes a hat with him to Wimbledon today. I've already made him he's birthday card so I will give this to my DD to give to him.
This is how I made the photo corner which are really easier to make and you can vary the size to whatever you want. For the pic above the square is 4cm and I measured a cm in from the edge all the way round then, a diagonal line across the middle which I then cut. I cut out the shaded areas too.
It leaves you a pair of these and if like me, you ink the edges then stick onto a piece or c0-dinating card in the corner then use a ruler to measure, make a border.
You then cut out the middle leaving a border. I have to thank Ellie at Mod Scraps who showed me how to do this when I first started Scrapbooking.
Many thanks to Spyder for the fabulous award.
So in January I hit 50 000 hits which was brilliant but I've noticed my hits have nearly reached 100 000 mark another 50 000 in less than six months so it looks like I will be buying some blog candy at Newbury.
We are having a bit of heatwave and all the fans have had a dusting a working to full capacity very different summer from last year.

This is one of the new DT stamps I got from dream2stamp and the card almost made itself, I know I wanted to cut out the inside of the window and to use acetate for the windows. I also knew I wanted the shape to be an oval the trick was to find one that would fit. The papers is papermania Blueberry Hill and rest is out of my stash.
I have some DT work to do that I won't be able show yet but there's something happening on Sunday on the Simon Says Challenge.

I'm still catching up and although I'm bit late with thanks this award was given me from Fern who is a fabulous cardmaker and I can't believe how young she is.
Jackie has also sent it to me too, she just received some rescue battery hens you can read about them one her blog.
So while on holiday DD and I got out our books and popped the bookmark on the cover of the book for safe keeping while we read and hubby says where's mine, this is the man that reads one book a year. So I kept my promise and made him one using scraps, I used Simon Says Stamps, Deer with Forest Family set,
I did manage to do my CJ entry which took a bit longer than I planned too, but it worked out brilliantly but can't show it yet.
