Guest DT call at Diestodiefor

How are you all today...as you can see i've been messing with my blog again :), Deb's has made some fabulous backgrounds and headers, if you click on the link on my righthand sidebar it will take you straight there..thank you Debs x

I noticed Tracey at Diestodiefor is looking for a Guest Designer so i thought i'd try my luck with this little creation..i cant remember the last time i made something to keep all for myself, i bought the 7Gypsies rubberband book last week from The Stampman,they have 20% off at the mo and delivery is free over £10, and had in mind to make a 'Wish' book to write down all the lovely goodies/stamps that i see on my travels in Blogland and when browsing through Mags...i've a terrible memory !

I painted the book with an Adirondack paint dabber..Juniper, then covered in BasicGrey 'Fruitcake' paper, added Doodlebug rub ons and Hearts, Angel Anya stamp which i paper pieced...Tracey stocks The Greetings Farm stamps now :)...i've not quite finished the book, still have the back of it to complete, but the front is pretty much finished i think... :)

I'd like to thank Caryn, Michelle and Clare for thinking of me with these awards...these ladies are so talented, if you haven't come across their blogs yet please do visit, they are a great source of inspiration !
and i'm truely honoured to recieve them ...thank you :)Shall have a think about who to pass them on to.....

Well i've had a busy day today, i took Chester to the vets this morning to be neutered...no more babies for her now :( and poor love is struggling with the horrible plastic funnel around her head...that has to stay for 10 days until she has her stitches removed. The kittens are driving me bonkers now...as cute as they are i'm looking forward to returning to normality...they are into EVERYTHING...so naughty !

I also had my blood taken this morning for more tests for the Anthony Nolan trust and it was posted out to them today so should'nt be too long before i hear whether i can go any further towards helping someone..as promised i'll keep you posted :)

Right off to put my feet up now and watch the box for a while....byeeee xx
