Found Art Friday!

Hello everyone, it's Found Art Friday today and here is my mixed media painting inspired by the words "Everything Blooming". I really experimented with this piece and used paint, pencil, collage and my own drawn flowers and bunny. I just kept adding layers until I felt I should stop- really good fun! :) I'm calling this painting Tokyo Bunny.

If any ones new to the Found Art Friday concept you can click here for more info. or click here to see Cathy Nichols's shop (her work is amazing)!

Have a great weekend everyone, Pip and I are going to see some wedding venues- very exciting!! :)

Its A Boy!

Just had some lovely news that one of my friends has had a little baby boy. Congratulations Mummy and Daddy! :)

Hope you like the design- I can't quite believe it but I designed this 5 years ago! Doesn't time go by so quickly?

I also had another fantastic surprise recently and that was to find out that I had received another Sunshine Blog award from the lovely lady behind Dots & Spots! Thank you Becky- it made my day :)

Flowers and Thank yous

Happy Friday everyone! I was sitting having my lunch today and enjoying my Birthday flowers as the sunshine poured through the window and I thought they were too beautiful not to share with you. They remind me of warmer days :)

Thank you so much for all my lovely Birthday wishes and congratulations messages- reading all your comments made my Birthday even more special :)

Have a great weekend everyone. x

Hello! It's a triple celebration here at my blog today :D

Firstly it's my Birthday today, (hip, hip, hooray!), so there will be lots of laziness and cake eating going on! I haven't opened any pressies as yet as I'm waiting for Pip to get home- so getting rather excited about that and I got a surprise knock at the door this morning as Pip had sent me some beautiful flowers!

My second celebration is that I finally managed to get to London to take some photos of my cards in Fenwicks and Libertys! Excuse the quality of the photos! This was such a buzz for me I can't really explain it in words- I was so excited in fact, that I forgot to ask permission to take the pictures and I was approached by a very nice lady who told me to stop. Once I explained why I was there and proved who I was she let me carry on!! lol!



And my third celebration is that I received a blog award from my good friend Anna. Such a lovely surprise!

The sunshine blog award is given to other bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspires others in the blogging world. :)

The rules for accepting this award are:

*Put the logo on your blog or within your post
*Pass the award onto 12 bloggers
*Link the nominees within your post
*Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog
*Link the person from who you received this award from.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to cheat a bit here because I've been pondering for a while now trying to decide who to pass this award onto and I've come to the conclusion that I just can't pick only 12 blogs that I love and that inspire me- I visit tons more than that and they all inspire me! So I've decided that I'm giving this award to all the lovely blogs I visit (I always comment so you know who you are!) Please accept this award and share it with other bloggers who inspire you too :)

Right I'm off to scoff some cake, drink a cup of tea and perhaps have an afternoon Birthday snooze............ :)

Bye bye for now xx
