Got a bug!

Right it's been another whirlwind of a day and I just have time to pop this on whilst James finishes off the dinner I've started. We're having Spanish tonight! Anyway, this is based on Jill's sketch from Secret Crafters:

Alota stamps, Doodlebug papers, nestabilities, Copics

I saw this image on Natalies blog and had to rush and own it for myself. It's an Alota stamps Ladybug image and I got the set from Dies to Die For. Shaded with Copics and layered on plain and patterned Doodlebug papers.

And now I must thank Chrissie properly for the three blog awards she has given me recently. Thanks Chrissie, really value your friendship. Before I pass them on, the circle of friends award means I have to divulge 5 pieces of information about myself and ask the recipients to do the same - keep going to find out my five things and the girls I'm passing these awards on to.

Right then, five things about me I haven't already blogged about!
  1. I don't think it was all baby weight!
  2. When my boys are asleep, instead of resting or doing any housework I prefer to sneak off to my craft room
  3. I really want to paint a wall in my kitchen bright pink (everything else is white)
  4. I'm always too hot!
  5. I'd like a champagne lifestyle on lemonade pockets
So now I'm passing these awards to some lovely friends:
