We have another Bank Holiday here in the UK this weekend (Hooray!) but it is almost the last of the year, which seems to be flying by so quickly!

I'm finally getting back into the swing of things after a few days off, and I just couldn't resist the charms of the new TGF Roll Call kit.

Flirty Edward was screaming "Use Me" and hey, it would have been rude to refuse! :)

I have coloured him with Grey Tone Promarkers and embellished my card with Prima E Crystals.

Next week we have lots of fun in store with some special announcements, Previews and maybe some wonderful blog candy too. Be sure to join us for the fun.

Myself and Colette are out for our good friends Hen Party this Saturday (afternoon tea followed by a Cocktail making class) and it's sure to be a truly wicked weekend.

Thanks for stopping by, Katie x

Today I have another girly card to share and some exciting news to reveal!

First my card. I have used TGF Olivia and her adorable cat (who I've decided to call Chester) from the OA Buddies set.
The flourishes today are courtesy of my Sizzix big shot and Die, and the super cute pink polka dot flower is from Prima 'Love Story' collection.

I have coloured Olivia with Promarkers and finished my card with a Friends tag charm.

Stamp, Promarkers, flowers and Charms available HERE from Nutcrafters.

Now onto some extra special News. You may have noticed our Blog Hop button up in our side bar for the past few days. Well Monday 24th May sees a very exciting new release over at, but hopefully you can join us for a day of fun hopping and Prizes on Sunday for our 'Here Comes the Bride' Blog Hop! Tomorrow we will have a early sneak peak at the new release, and you can get all the details for how to win some stamping goodies.

See you tomorrow, Colette x

So my favourite type of cards to make are definitely Girly cards. Maybe because they always look so pretty, or is it because they are so much easier than boys cards? I don't know, but with all the great fun embellishment there are at the moment Swirly Girly card just got a whole lot more exciting!
My first card is super 'swirly' with a Prima E crystal Flourish and very 'Girly' with this uber cute Madelyn stamp from TGF and these adorable Prima flowers. And for an extra bit of girly chic, I have added a couple of Fancy pins to the mix! All available here.

So here we are again, hopefully fresh and ready for a new crafting week! Katie has left me in charge of the blog while she is away for a few days and I thought we would kick things off with a card that I have made.

I haven't found as much time as I would have liked to craft lately, what with planning my wedding and working non stop, but here is one I made earlier...
This mini card was made using The Greeting Farm's Chelsea, she just makes me wanna dance!

I have coloured her with Promarkers and decorated with Sizzix cut letters and a Musical note charm.

Do you ever get that feeling that when it rains it really does pour!

My good friend Cathy is having a bit of a bad time at the moment, and without going into detail it really does seem to be pouring on her!
So here in an effort to send cheery thoughts her way is Rain, Snow, Shine Anya and her umbrella, hopefully to shelter from a little of the rain.

Big Hugs going your way Cathy, :) xxx

P.S our sketch challenge is still open, and the winner will be drawn Friday, so get yours in while you can!
