CCT21 - In the house: It's your day

theme close to my heart this week over on CCT, 'In the house' - my favourite place to be! First thought was to do another of my magnolia home scenes as I've got the fab new table but being dictated by time this week I chose the quicker alternative, a PB bathtub stamp (could have gone for a bella bathtub or a rubber romance bath stamp too - hmmm, do you think I like my bubble baths? LOL)


  • Image: 'its your day' Penny Black stamp. sentiment from a PB clear set
  • Colouring: distress inks and cosmic shimmer paints (the bubbles sparkle IRL) the bathtub is a lovely soft lavender colour but looks grey in photo :(
  • Paper: BG 'Euphoria' pad got over just looking at it now and finally using it! blue & burgandy cardstock from stash - closest match I could find
  • Others: quickcutz revolution flourish die (REV-0024), cuttlebug bubbles folder, oval petite scallop nestabilities, SU word window punch, pink gems from stash

If you take part this week you will be entered into draw for a prize which this week is 2 fab new stamps donated by Katharina from her new range of stamps.

Which ties in neatly with my other bit of news/info. If you've not already been, 'Whiff of Joy' is now taking pre-orders for the Charlie & Charlotte range of stamps. So go on over and have a look, I'm sure you'll not be able to resist, especially as it's FREE shipping if you pre-order now.

It's so exciting seeing myself on the DT page of the website; I'm not sure what's given Katharina the idea that I have that much craft supplies - she must have been talking to my hubby, I'm sure I don't have THAT much, honest! Love how she's made all our photos black & white - it looks really professional, just hope I can come up with the goods now :/, should be soon!

Hopefully I will have a Wii console and Wii fit to play with later today. I'm not much for going to the gym etc but have really started to put weight back on since I've gone 'part-time' (some of my clothes are starting to feel a bit 'snug'!) so need to do some excercise but knowing me it has to be something which I will actually do and at home. So being the big kid that I am we thought we'd get the Wii as it looks fun. I'll let you know how I get on! Anyone else tried it?

Another stunning card and I adore this image! You have made some fantastic cards etc while I've been away Fran...I've looked at your blog a few times but had to click off quickly because your music kicked in and I didn't want it to wake everyone up! I am on a laptop and wasn't too sure where the volume was!!!
