Sock Cat..



Sock Cat!

The most effectual Sock Cat!
Who's intellectual close friends get to call him S.C.
Providing it's with dignity.

Sock Cat!
The indisputable leader of the gang.
He's the boss, he's a pip, he's the championship.
He's the most tip top,
Sock Cat.

Yes he's a chief, he's a king,
But above everything,
He's the most tip top,
Sock Cat.

Sock Cat!

My new addiction - Bookmarks!



I have made these using up some of my scraps!

The challenge over at Polka Doodles is Books, and I thought I would have a go at these bookmarks. They are so easy to make, and look quite cute!

I printed the polka dot paper from the Paper Boutique Vol 1 (Funky Flowers template!) and picked some matching cardstock from my HUGE box of scraps!

I then found a suitable image on my new Forever Friends CD Rom (Which I must say is lovely!) and cut around the bears using nesties. Stuck it all together and TAH DAH! :)

Polka Doodles - Books
Saturday Challenge - Anything BUT a card
Forever Friends - Monochrome

Cooey! Have you missed me?!

I am back in the land of blogging!

I have had quite a lot on in the past few weeks, what with becoming an aunty again to my beautiful baby niece, Erin Faye...



Then Christmas in March with the family...

Gracie Rae


April Michelle


Then Mum and Harry came to visit me in Nottingham...





And I have finally spent the morning in my craft room, and been creative {Photos to follow!}. In the past few weeks, I have been sorting the house out, working, just generally a busy bee! But I am now back for good!
