Ribbon, button and mulberry paper flowers from stash and Prima Painterly Petals flower, Doodlebug jewells. Papers are Imaginisce and greeting is Craftwork Cards. Hope you like.......

I've been tagged by the lovely Michelle

Thanks for including me in the fun Michelle! You can see her fab blog here.

The "rules" of the game: Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

Ten years ago: I was a stay at home Mum.

Five things in todays 'to do list':
1. I am at work, so mostly boring works tasks today.
2. Try not to eat any chocolate.
3. Watch Big Brother whilst doing some ironing.
4. Make a card for my friends' birthday
5. I bought one of those K&Co Pads that have press out gift boxes, so will have a play with those if I get time.

Snacks I enjoy: Splendips - Sweet Chilli one and anything with Chocolate of course!!!

Things I would do if I was a millionaire:

I would make sure that my Mum & Dad were financially secure and see that the rest of my family were ok too. By a bigger house, go back to the Maldives, I haven't been there since the Tsunami on Boxing Day a few years ago, we were there for Christmas! I would love to go to the USA also, I have never been there!! Would love to have a place in France and be self sufficient.

Places I have lived: I have lived all my life in Surrey, England.

I will now tag Nikki, Kim Fee, Kim Pearce, Han and Dawn. Please take a look at these great blogs! there is some great inspiration there!

Rachel-Anne Miller stamp

I'm not too sure about this card......... I thought I'd try and colour this lovely stamp using different colours to the packaging suggestion but I think it would have probably looked better in reds and oranges, oh well, card base is Bazzill scallop and bg paper is from a DCWV glitter stack, ribbon, flower & button from stash.

circle card

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a great weekend! I had a little play with my new copics. this circle base card was chalked with pink and yellow pearlescent chalks then I stamped the lovely little dancer straight on to it and coloured her with the copics. I then edged the circle with a paper pricker and dots in between with a stardust sakura pen. Finshed with one of the new Prima flowers called Painterly I think from the Glitterpot with a Doodlebug jewel in the centre and a foiled greeting from Craftwork Cards.
