A bit of this and that!

Gosh how this week has flown by.

My baby started Pre-school on Monday and she absolutely loved it!! We normally stay to do puzzles at school for ten minutes in the morning before we leave them. But Miss Emily was pushing me out the door very quickly. Her teacher tells me it shows confidence, but I was a little sad that she was so happy to let me go lol.

The house was so quiet without my little buddy with me. However it was nice to be able to clean the house, and not have it look like a tornado hit it within five minutes of finishing lol.

I have been so busy this past week that I haven't had a great deal of time at home in the quiet though. There was something to do each day of the week.

The image can be found on Sheet #2, Plate #87, which can be found at Lime Tart.

Speaking of Lime Tart, I was at ACTSA yesterday and I had a great time meeting a lot of wonderful ladies. I had so much fun demonstrating how to make some paper flowers and having a chat. I also received my kit for March and can I tell you, this is one beautiful kit. So make sure you keep an eye out for that one next month.

Well I had better get going. So many things to get done today.

Have a great weekend everyone.
Take care

Hang In There

If you have stopped by the Sweet Pea Stamp blog lately, you would have noticed the design team putting up cards using some new Sweet Pea images.

This is one of the gorgeous images I got to play with.

The stamp is Hang in There from Karen Middleton's Sheet 1, Plate #112.
I am more of a dog person than a cat person, but this image is so darn cute!!

I pulled out some left overs from my June '10 Limited Edition Gourmet Tart from Lime Tart. I still love digging into this kit, especially when I need something pretty.

My blog candy for this week is still open. So make sure you leave a comment in my previous post to go into the draw.

Thank you for stopping by.
I will be back really soon.

The secret is out......

The secret is out....

I am now officially a Design Team Member for Sweet Pea Stamps!!
I can't tell you how excited I am to be joining this amazingly talented team. It was a Sweet Pea stamp that was the first image I coloured about six months ago, remember this little guy...

I am still quite fond of him being my very first image and all. The stamp is Lisa Victoria's Dragon Luck. Maybe he was my lucky charm!!

I am thrilled to be on this wonderful team and look forward to sharing all my Sweet Pea creations with you!

Thank you so much for stopping by
