A challenge

Most of you know that nicks mom is ill with terninal cancer and is in hospital and she is pretty high on morphine, Its not looking good as to get her out of hospital at the moment.

is there any possibility i could ask a big favour and get some people from pcu and the craft blogs to make her some cards to cheer her up

i know everyone is busy with Christmas etc but she is really down and I would like to cheer her up somehow

with this in mind, if anyone can do this i am prepared to get a craft goodie bag onto my blog to say thanks to all who can help me with this

I know i am asking alot but some cheering up would be great x

hanging Atc project

had a challenge from the Pcu / Crafters Corner for a atc hanging decoration
I messured a die which was roughly the width but not the height and thought stuff it im gonna send it on and see what happens as thats me

The finished article

one of the snowflakes and the connector used

How to fasten it onto the tree

Cuttle-bug cut and emboss die ( no item number but can get the link if required)
didn't use the emboss bit as needed to use glitter card

Silver chain from an old necklace and the beads use to make the fastener also on the same necklace ( thrifty or what)

charm was an stocking at the bottom which nick seems to think was an old boot ( bar humbug to him)

This looks really good hanging up i might make a few more

atcs for nov 09

Most people know that the last few months have been a little trying on anyone's patience with my job issues and other friends that enjoy using me and me being stupid let them!!!!

As we run a airsoft club which most of the management team are people who help out alot on game days with the hiring of the air soft guns or the shop and the likes. i have been running the shop now for little over a year which i have to admit some times i like and some times i dont!!!

but lately we have had a fuck wit who hasn't been at the club for ages and we know is ill which is ok as he is ill and cant attend a meeting or a game day cant be bothered to log on to the club website and make apoloigies then we find out he has been working and when i asked him about working etc he said yep and he cant be bothered to log onto the club website. this is the person who we spent 100.00 on a 1st aid course and the silly man cant be arsed t come back and when he was skint it was the club who gave him the money to go to away game. so i said something and he ignored me again and again....

2 weeks ago most of you know nick smom was diagnosed with cancer we was told that it was terninal and she will die. not good at all and then i asked everyone not to send jokes and stuff which could offend me or upset and he didn't listen once he just carried it on and on to the point that i had a go and now it seems the management team want to keep him. I feel like we are justa running joke and feel like cancelling helping out the shop, i make a bit of money but for a 12 houir day and 3 hours teh night before making food i dont think its worth it now

sorry for the eant as you can see im pissed off and pretty angry x

Matchbox challenge PCU

The theme was a matchbox challenge. to alter it decorate it and fill as many cards in as you could,
when i painted the matchbox i wasn't happy with the colour it came out nor when i papered it so me being me decided that i would make my own boxes. Below shows you the photo of many boxes i tried to get the design right and finally after about 6 boxes i decided on it.
but they make great storage containers lol

the finished box and the bells are tiny little jingle bells they are so cute and dainty
