I know I've not been the best blogger of late, but things are really busy and on top of it all and very close friend's daughter died unexpectedly and I just can't bring myself to craft at the moment.

I feel helpless and useless as I know there is nothing I can do for them except be there.

When I found out I shot back 20 years to when my brother died and I am so numb, so excuse me for not being around for a while but I need to get my head together.

Take care all and see you soon!!!

a colourful blog hop continued.........

Good Morning, WOW What a response to the Blog Hop testerday, well hold on because it is continuing today!!!!

We have a second image to share with you all.

Have you arrived from the Lovely Mina, then you are on track

Here is "HOLD ONTO MY HEART" from Sugar Nellie and available from Funky Kits

Aren't they sweet, such a lovely versatile image for young and old alike.

I also like it cos I don't have to colour the faces!!

Today's project isn't a card or a box its a front or plague. I haven't decided what to do with it really, but I like that as I can please myself when I'm ready and if an ocassion that suits pops up!!

Its so sweet.

I have embossed and die cut some Tim Holtz Hardward findings and then inked in white.

I also added a heart!!

Love this embossing folder, I have never seen these but will be searching, the embossing is deep and looks amazing.

Thanks for all your lovely comments they are always appreciated and read!!
Hope you like today's project now hop to Maya to continue the hop.

A Carnival Of Colour Blog Hop

Well its final here a Monster Blog Hop for the new Sugar Nellie releases, available from Funky Kits

If you have popped along to see me today and are wondering what's going on, go to Sugar Nellie for all to be revealed about the Carnival of Colour.

I have used Cajun Craze and Lime Green

If you are on the trial of the Blog Hop you should have arrived here from the Lovely Mina
Here is my creation using the new image Jelly Pip isn't she adorable, I can't wait to get my hands on the rest!! I wanted to create something special for a special blog hop so I had to make a box and card

I have kept the layout simple but jazzed it up with the colour and flowers. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, the paper and ribbons are are from my stash The box was made with a Bigshot Pro Die - love it!!! And some gorgeous blooms.

I hope you like, make sure you come back tomorrow to see my second image.

Now you need to hop to Maya to continue the hop

Have fun!!
