Thank you for the messages people have left me, I have had a crazy fortnight. We have lost a family friend, another friend has been seriously ill in hospital and is now awaiting a transplant. I found a lump and as my mother died of breast cancer I flipped, luckily all is ok and just glandular. Due to the stupid cold getting on my chest I have just finished my 2nd course on anti biotics in three weeks and to top the lot both of the boys are still ill - argh!
So if my commenting and cards are sporadic I apologise.

"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."

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.
