I have made this card this afternoon after I sat & went through old chrissy cards to see which ones I could use. I have made this card using my card stock, SU holly stamp to decorate the red card. Recycled FF cards & SU punches. I am entering it into Susie & Vikki's Christmas club challenge - Holly
I have had "Holly" good fun today with paper instead of wool!!
.....OMG you have no idea how much I have missed paper...lol!! Knitting is fun but time consuming & so far I have made 4 characters & 2 to go!!
I have made this card this morning. A request from my mum. I have been loving looking at everyones fabby cards in this style & decided I needed to have a go!! I am entering this into the Kaboodle Doodle Challenge - Fancy folds
Don't forget to watch or set up your sky plus for this Monday. The Gadget Show 8pm 1st March to see the first of my knitting!!
Hello ladies! I hope you are all well? I have been busy knitting still. Not long now till I can reveal what I have been doing!! Make sure you watch The Gadget Show this Monday (its changed date) 1st March @ 8pm to see the first of my knitting.
I am having a knitting free day today so I thought I'd join in with WOYWDW & also make a card. If you fancy joining in with the snoop fest why not pop over to Julia's blog & post a comment.
WOYWDW I missed last weeks so I thought I'd share this week....not much to share on the card making/crafting side other than a desk I currently can't get to for stuff!!! I've been so busy with my knitting for channel 5 & resting when not knitting, so I've just kinda lost my desk!!
As you can see I have my wool out, my stuffing & on the arm of the chair is the leaflet to remind to do the warranty for our new combi micro wave!!
Susie have you spotted the chocolate yet???!!! There are some mini eggs hiding for me to do my easter gifts.
If you would like to join in with WOYWDW pop over & leave a comment on Julia's blog
Award A huge thank you to the lovely Wipso for this giving me this award. I am truly chuffed to bits that she has thought of me yet again for another lovely award. As I have already received this award I will just say my huge thank yous & tell you my most favourite thing of all right now is My blogging friends
Apologies I would like to apologise for the lack of blog hopping, comments, crafting & joining in with challenges. Truthfully I am having a really tough time with a lot of things & to add insult to injury having some major weird side effects from the tablets I'm taking. Doc has said they should go in a few days so I have to just take it easy for abit.
Updates Well...channel 5 currently have one of my toys & the 2nd is about ready to post to them. They have now asked me to make a 3rd so I'll be resting & knitting again whilst taking it easy so I'm afraid probably no cards from me for a few more days yet. (I seem to have to have either my knitting head on or my cards!!)
Keep crafting & hopefully I'll get some blog hopping down a bit later
Both cards I made last night & they are for an order off my mum. The one above is also for Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge The one below was going to be for Crafty Catz but I am too late so I thought I'd share it with you anyway. Its the first time I've inked up these cute dog stamps. They are Whipper Snapper stamps & came in my candy from Bev that I won last year.
This picture is the front of my cupcake gift box I made a while ago which Ali very kindly sent me as mine got corrupted or something when loading. The cupcakes are from Susie's shop Die Cut Dreams & the paper is from my stash. Don't you think they go well together though? I hope you all have a good weekend. I am off to catch some Z's as I have a stinking head ache & I want to get on with my knitting!! Thats reminds me I need to go see if I've got a pattern for Linda...do that next then Z's!!
Ok here it is: The other day CH5 contacted me after seeing my shop (website) & asked me if I would make them some commissioned knitted dolls. Its to do with the competition Harry Hill's doing The K Factor. My knitted doll is now on its way to FIVE & will be on The Gadget Show on Monday 8th March probably going to appear on the Harry Hill show but I don't know when & now I've been told The Sun paper might also want to cover it.
OMG!!! I have to stop thinking & keep telling myself its just some knitting or I might stop breathing!!
I've got another doll to make for someone on TV who has requested one. Not sure if or when that will be on TV but I'll keep you posted when I find out more.
Exciting or what?!
Can't show you pictures till its been on TV so for now you'll have to be patient!!!
Thank you soooo much to Wipso for giving me this award. I am totally over the moon & as she was grinning from ear to ear.

Morning all. I just want to apologise for being a bit absent the last week I have been having a tough time. Yesterday I went to see the "Head" Doc about my headaches & he doesn't think they are anything "Sinister" (his words!) but is going to send me for a scan to check my neck & head. He is also referring me onto the head clinic where they do physio therapy & accupuncture to help instead of tablets. Which I am looking forward to as I hate taking pills all the time.
Sorry I missed out on some challenges I want to join in this week but I'll have to see how I get on as my neck is very sore today after the Doc wiggled it about yesterday!!
