Good,week,time for WOYWW,and Pixie Cottage,time

Morning everyone I have been up since 6am again,was going to post this then,but thought if I got all Housework done then I have the complete day to myself at last.
So its all done have the slow cooker on for the meal tonight so today is just for me,still had not better talk too soon,encase the phone goes and its one of the kids,again.
Right first its time for the PIXIE COTTAGE the theme this week is embossing plus the sketch so once again its choose whichever one you would like to do. Or maybe you want to do both I will leave that up to you. I have used,the flower,this time let the girls down this week,as not happy with this card at all just could not get it right but hey nothing I can do about it now and just had no time to get another one done so here it is.
The satin heart,and flowers are from Jazzlins,online shop which is on my side bar,just click onto the shop and off you go. I also want to welcome the new DT members,wow they are all so super talented and have all made stunning cards this week. So welcome aboard guys.
Now for whats been happening,well as you all know yesterday my blog was featured on the top blog site which is in post below,then dear Cindy posted about little old me on her blog which you can see HERE. Then a lovely lady Sherry also asked if she could feature my work on her blog which is also HERE. Now how brilliant is that well it is too me anyway,just so amazed that they like my work,and then found out yesterday that I also won Judes,xmas candy wow now that is amazing,as I have no xmas things yet as still not replaced them from the fire we had last year so this is going to me a massive help to me. So Jude hun thank dear Chloe for me as she picked my name,bless her heart.
So yeah not a bad week,at all as it was one awful weekend with lots of family drama's which I really do not want to go through all that again.
Right WOYWW I did not get round to many last week,but today I am here all day so hope to get around too seeing most of you,I bought this cupboard from a charity shop £15 as soon as I saw it knew it would be perfect for all my papers,and stamps so here it it.

So what you reckon good buy or what i have varnished it again as there were some marks on it but I have gone over it and they are all gone now. I have also made this tag and atc,I saw one of these chunky atcs last week on the simon says blog. I did not have any chunky ones,so made my own template from cardboard,then stuck it all toghether to produce this.

I also made this tag just leaving it black,and white,items,Tim holtz,fruit pixie,the button was from Jude. Stamps I bought from the show,paperartsy. Right so if you would like to know why on earth I am posting my craft area on my blog just pop over to see the lovely Julia HERE to see what its all about.
Oh if anyone is having problems with uploading,and other issues it worth poping over to Susies,blog to read all about how to post,and also set your privacy settings,Susie has done a brilliant tutorial so pop over HERE to take a look.

I had intended to stop by and visit anyone who left a comment, then I got confused, so decided to go through the list instead. So you see how well my strategy worked (grin). You got a real bargain on that storage unit. I don't even have to use the money converter to know that! And you already have it all filled. Love the tag, too. Love that style of art, as I'm sure you can tell.

Julia Dunnit said...

Score! with the cupboard. It looks like you have a serious amount of stash there! Love the chunky ATC - I must have my head in a bucket - never knew of such things!

Lynne Phelps said...

What a great bargain, more storage is always a good thing! I love your projects, especially that B&W tag, it's fabulous!

Claire said...

What a great bargain at just £15! Love your work, especially that tag - the black and white looks great,
