Currently on my desk and Spread the love blog hop.

Firstly can I tell you about a special blog hop that is going on. This information has been taken from Katharina's blog where the hop starts.

"On October 4th, 4 teenagers armed with knives broke into a home in a small town in New Hampshire. Alone and sleeping inside were a mother and her 11 year old daughter. These 4 boys broke into this home with the intent to rob and kill anyone inside. They stabbed the mom, Kimberly Cates, to death and left her daughter, Jaimie, for dead in their driveway. It was a completely random act, their home was chosen only due to its secluded surroundings."

There are over 60 hoppers all offering candy and in return they ask that you take the time to send a card or a gift you created to the following address -

Jaimie Cates
c/o Mont Vernon Fire Station
Main Street
Mont Vernon, NH 03057
United States

Thank you. I am sending the blue card on this post and also a small gift.

Stamp Something…for Jaimie http://spreadthelove-forjaimie.blogspot.com/

ok onto the cards!

This card has been made for the following challenges

  • just magnolia - monocrome
  • simon says - all that sparkles
  • spoonful of sugar - sketch

This card actually started of for last weeks spoonful of sugar theme of food and eating! The top part of tilda is masked and then mounted onto the ribbon and bottom half of the plate. She has been coloured in copics and the paper is basic grey lily kate. The swirls have been stamped and then I have added the gems.

I hope you like it.

This card is cute card thurdays entry for the theme drink. I have made a male card but I feel that there is something missing, a sentiment is needed but I cannot come up with one at present. I think I will wait and see whom I send the card too. The stamp is a hanglar image from heidi and papers are basic grey boxer.

These two cards are missed challenges that I thought I would show you. I am not going to say which but I bet you can guess, both seem like there is something missing but I am not sure what I am open to suggestions.

Hugs Vicky xxx
