Just to say hello xx

 Just wanted to pop on and say hello!!!!

I am still here and looking at all your amazing work which is totally beautiful.

My house move is getting me down now as I just don't know what to do first I already have a fabulous headache today and its only lunch time!! lol

Tomorrow is Halloween and my birthday so Rochelle has booked for me to go with her and Summer to Gulliver's Kingdom as they have a special Halloween themed day and Summer is getting dressed up so I will at least have a packing free day just have to worry about it all when we get back!

I also would like to ask if anyone has the Halloween stamps from Hanglar and Stanglar that they would like to sell I saw them a few years ago on eBay and now can't get hold of them I would really appreciated it if anyone would like to part with them!

Also need to apologise as I have not done my DT cards for a while but I hope to be back up and running soon as this is the only thing I have that keeps me occupied

Oh and don't forget I have goodies on eBay if any one is interested.

Love and Hugs Chanelle xxxx

What a task!!!

Just a quick post because I am busy packing up to move and OMG what a mess I am in there is stuff all over my house I just don't know where to start!!!!

The main room is my beloved Craft Room I have already packed five boxes and you can not tell I have been there!! lol

I have sat once again adding goodies to my eBay account as I have so much stuff you should see my mum's face when I get more craft stuff out!!!

Anyway I have so much to do and of course I am still off work and I am finding this so hard as I just have no interest at all, well apart from my crafts!!

I'm also very sorry that I can't get around to leave comments but my head is a bigger mess than before I just hope that once this is all over I can try to sort myself out properly and try to move on with my life!!

Fingers crossed xxx

I am posting a card I did for my nephew's birthday as always I was in a rush to take them down and the light wasn't good at all so the pictures really don't do these gorgeous papers any favour's at all!!!

D'Arcy's Diaries perfect image xx

Well AWOL again I'm just so bad!!! lol

Here is my card that I made for my friend Kerry who lost her mum a week last Wednesday after a short battle with Cancer. Back in July I made a a get well card and a just because card for Kerry to give her Mum the second one was because she had just been diagnosed and Kerry loved giving her my cards because they always cheered her up.

I thought this image from D'Arcy was just perfect she is called "Time to Think" and can be found here.  Coloured as always with my pro markers and added some stickles.
I actually made a 6 x 6 Topper but when I went to stick it to the card is was too big!!!
Papers are First Addition and can be found here at Natalie and Amy's.  Beautiful pearls added to the corners.
The sentiments are from Kaisercraft and the border punch is from EK Success.
Added Retro punched flowers in the same papers and a beautiful punched leaf with a soft blue pearl center.
A side view.

Well I actually started this post yesterday but then Summer came to stay and she's at that age now where she requires all your attention!!! lol

Need to pop off now to try and sort out my DT creations then hopefully can call back later to leave some comments!!

Before you go please pop over to Live and Love Crafts where Sandy has this candy!!

Because October is Breast Cancer Month "Think Pink" Sandy has put together this must have "Pink" Candy.  

It affects old as well as young, women as well as men, rich as well as poor…
Cancer. The dreaded C word. 
Most of us probably personally know someone who has been affected.
In my case it was a very close relative who 9 years ago was diagnosed with breast cancer. She went through chemo and radiation and she also had the mastectomy. She fought hard and she won.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and here on the LLC Blog we wanted to do our part to increase awareness of the disease by creating in PINK. As most of you know, the Pink Ribbon is the international symbol of breast cancer awareness.

I have just lost three people one was Kerry's Mum and the other two family members (Man and Wife) who lost their lives less then three weeks apart and know the devastating effect it has on the family left behind!!!  

This is such an amazing cause which everyone should always get behind as we never know when it may effect us. 

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend and thanks for popping by!

Love and Hugs Chanelle xxxx

P.S:  Check out my listing on eBay you may find a bargain.
