March challenge

Time for our March challenge over at
and this month its
********Close to Nature********

Nature covers so many elements in our everyday lives and it is so often taken for granted what Mother Nature provides: flowers, plants, wild animals, breathtaking scenery and landscapes, the ocean, wildlife and so the list goes on. We are sure you will all have your own takes on this lovely theme and what better time of the year than Spring. And if you get really stuck then lets see lots of blossoms and flowers.

This month we have an absolutely brilliant prize!

Definitely a reason to get those stamps out and join in the fun!!

For my card I used
Stamps - Came with Crafters Inspiration magazine
Papers - lilac vellum from my stash
Embellishments - pearls, ribbon, spellbinders die, doodling,
Medium - coloured with promarkers

I am entering this into

I haven't been blogging much at all this past few weeks. There's been so much going on at home I just had to put it on the bottom of my ever growing list. But hopefully I will be around this week and catch up on my favourite blogs.
Thanks for dropping by and be sure and enter for a chance to win that fab prize!

Sooooooo cold here! Dry thankfully but cold!
I have had an old bug on me this week, top and bottom lol. But not very pleasant.
Beginning to recover now hopefully.
My daughter and her partner and my son and his partner are all heading to Latvia on Monday where I believe it is even colder lol. But I am sure it will be a lovely experience for them. 
My hubby is off next week but we are going to  be stuck at home as we have no dog minder but at least it will be quiet!
Anyone any nice plans for mid term break?

Our first challenge of 2017 over at STAMPING SENSATIONS is

********Coffee and Cream********

Hopefully you will all be getting back into the swing of things again and have time to enter!!

It was a real challenge this time. 1. using similar tone pencils 2. a CAS design into the bargain lol. But this is my finished card and I am happy enough for a first attempt with the pencils.

Well how did you put in your New Year's Eve. Ours was pretty quiet besides the constant ping from phones lol. We got some snacks out, watched a film and tried our very best to see in the new year but failed at 11:30! But by the time we got into bed, the fireworks were blasting away outside so we did actually see it in lol. Lets hope its a healthy and happy new year for us all.

Well Christmas has passed peacefully in the O'Hagan residence. It was lovely but very exhausting. Myself and hubby seemed to spend most of Christmas day feeding people and doing dishes, from breakfast through to tea time! Glad of the rest on boxing day lol.
I got a lovely box of pencils for one of my Christmas presents so will hopefully be practicing with them soon.
Did you get anything craft related this year? Let me know!!
Will be dropping round to see everyone shortly.

Money bags!

Dropping in to share one of the little money gift bags I created for my family for their Christmas money. I got the bags at the works. This one has been stamped using a Penny Black Jolly critters stamp. I coloured it using Edding Textile Pens. The name was handwritten ( like you couldn't guess lol). I bought some chocolate coins to go in there along with their money.

I have the food shopping done and everything is ready to go. I cleaned the house today with the help of my lovely daughter Charlie, Grandkids are going to be round soon so RELAX!!
We are having a get together with all the kids and grandkids round in my son's house on Christmas Eve, with have 2 extra visitors for dinner on Christmas day and then its on the treadmill to get rid of the excess lol.

Well I am dosed with the cold yet again! I don't know why it keeps coming back, third time now from October and I'm pretty peeved off! I have way to much to get done to be bothered with it.
I'm about half way through my Christmas shopping but plan to get some done this weekend, well hopefully it all then its just the dinner to shop for. We will be having just six of us this year as grandkids are off to their other grandparents for Christmas. So probably a quiet one lol.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you are getting on better than me!
