Happy & Sad xxx

Good morning to everyone I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and looking forward to a Happy New Year just hope 2012 is a much better year!!!

Last Tuesday the 27th December my Daughter got married it was luckily a beautiful day even though it turned cold after lunch there was no rain and we had a beautiful day up at Whitley Hall in Sheffield.

Here is the card I made for them and yes its a Magnolia with Magnolia papers lots of gold going on as well!

Coloured the image with Pro Markers and added some Glamour dust the shoes are red because if you look down the photos you will see Rochelle's wedding shoes!! lol

Found this beautiful sentiment stamp at The Craft Box and I just stamped and embossed it around the edges with gold.

Lots of flowers, beads and a gold corner from my stash.

Also used some of my new dies for some different texture and effects.

Rochelle's Dorothy Shoe's which are just fab!

A picture of my youngest daughter Danielle with Summer, Dusty and Bernard the house rabbit on Christmas day!


Now for the sad news I have decided to step down from my DT positions on the Crafty Purple Frog & Sweet Pea Stampers challenge blogs as at the moment I cannot give them 100% and feel that its only fair to let someone else have a chance. I would like to thank them for all there love and support to me over the last few months I have so appreciated everything you have done for me and will miss working with such wonderful ladies!!!

You will have noticed that my blog is very quiet at the moment and that is because I have very personal things going on at home at the moment and even though I have been off work for the last couple of months not much crafting has taken place as most of the time I can't face it or just sit looking at my stuff with no idea what to do!! lol I even contemplated buying my Christmas cards but eventually managed to do them.

Hope to sort myself out soon and start to comment on all your beautiful work again! I have been having a nosy from time to time just not leaving you much deserved comments!!!

Any way think that's long enough hope you all have a fab evening and Happy New Year to everyone lets hope that 2012 is going to be a better year!!!!


Love & Hugs Chanelle xxxxx

Hi my sweetie thought I would pop by again to leave you another comment seeing as the last one dissapeared.
You know how much I love this card its amazing & I sooooo love all the gold. Loving the posh red shoes & the photo is priceless shug. Thought this time I would leave you with a poem so I'm sorry for the long post shug.

At the sound of the tolling midnight bell,
a brand new year will begin.
Lets raise our hopes in a confident toast,
to the promise it ushers in.
May your battles be few, your pleasures many,
your wishes & dreams fulfilled.
May your confidence stand in the face of loss,
and give you the strength to rebuild.
May peace of heart fill all your days,
may serenity grace your soul.
May tranquil moments bless your life,
and keep your spirit whole.

I hope you are surrounded with love, peace & happiness all of 2012.

Sending you great big hugs hunni mmwah.

Happy Happy New Year to you Chanelle!!! I have decided this year is our year in crafts and the secret is to remain positive! Your work is simply beautiful and you are an inspiration to me and so many others :)
With lots of love and encouragement you will get back to crafting soon, just take it one day at a time:)
The Dorothy shoes are heaven sent, and to think I used to wear heels like that..now I'd probably break my neck wearing them.
If there is anything you ever need please ask, you know where I am:)
Huggs and love

Congratulations on your daughters wedding, how proud you must be. The red shoes are fantastic, wish I could wear them. I'm really sorry to hear that you've been off work, I hadn't realised, hope you're starting to feel better now and have a better 2012 health wise. The card is, as usual, stunning. You make such wonderful cards and put so much in to them to make them special. Hope to see you doing more blogging this year. Love & hugs Ann xx
