ME Time at last

Morning guys,well firstly I lost my blog yesterday, totally disappeared. Then when I finally got it back,could not get into,it as it kept saying warning about a Malware virus,had this before,and it was due to the Shabby blogs,design I had as my background. Blogger had a message on there website,so I had to delete it,so instead of getting another one I have decided to just go with Mr blogger not too keen on there choice,but no way am I going through all that again.
So that is how I spent my day yesterday,which I could have done without,as I finished all my cards for the shop yeahhhhhhhhhh took me until 3am, Friday morning to finish them but I did it.
So I managed to finish my book I have been making,oh how great was it go get back into,inks,and mess,he he,
This is one,of the cards I made,for the shop decided to make a wedding card with my tatty teddy CD.

 Papers are Hunky dory,ribbon from my stash,then added some heart gems,and a doilie. Then added the sentiment.

Now for my book.

This I made using,8 by 8,chipboard,then used papers from Tim,Holtz,used my,dies,and Anna Griffin,stamps,the words on the back of the book I won,in some candy from dear Gerri.
The letter I found whilst looking for some,things and it was from Lisa when she was about,6,oh my talk about,tears in my eyes.
It reads,
I love your very much,and you are the best mum in the world,and I could not wish for a better mum,and you  are better than Mrs,best,that was her favourite teacher.And I am going to keep saying this,again as I mean it,and you are the best mum in the whole world.
So this is now,in this book in side one of the pockets.
So hope you like it I am off later to take a look at a puppy,so hope to have some info soon,hugs Cherylxxxxxxxx

Sorry to hear you had blog probs hun, I know the Shabby malware thing caused a lot of probs.
Love the wedding card and LOVE LOVE LOVE the book - oh wow and the letter, aahh priceless.

Happy Days said...

Sorry for your problems hun. I had a problem a while back with a link to a well known challenge site that had been hacked. No one could get onto my blog, once I removed the links to the site the problem went. I guess it's just another of the joys of blogging??

Your wedding card is beautiful, just love it. As for the book - well what can I say other than it's fantastic and I love the letter! You've inspired me to do something similar with things of the kids that I've kept.

Enjoy the long weekend.
