Have fun!

Hello everyone, I hope you're OK! I'm real sorry for being such a 
bad blogger, I've just been sooooo busy with school! My SATS
are all over and done with now so I hope I  have done well! 
I had a lovely Birthday and got some lovely cards through the
 post so I want to say a big THANK YOU to Julie, Rachel and Liz. 
I have done a collage of photos of the cards and there's
a pic of my yummy cake too! 
I made a card this week as well, I used one of my favourite
Anya images and some lovely bright summery coloured
paper and ribbon. I coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens and
tried to make it look like she's outside on the beach! I used 2 
different sizes of punch for the flowers.
I've been reading a lot this week, I'm reading the Mallory Towers
books by Enid Blyton. My Mum used to read these books when she
was my age too! Do you read?  I got a new blog background
 too. Hope you like it!
Thank you for visiting my blog today.
love from Rebecca xx

A new challenge at Sparkles!

 Hello everyone, I have scheduled this to post on time as I'm
busy at school this week so I hope it works! There is a new
challenge at Sparkles today and the theme is
Monochrome. I love this theme cos I can use all different
shade of black and grey. My Mum and me coloured some
images the other day and I used this one to make a
 bookmark. I tried real hard with the shading on
this one and I really like it but I think I need to practice a
bit more! I used a scrap of paper and a die cut doily, some
punched flowers and some pearls and some peel offs 
for the words. If you want to join us at Sparkles you can make
anything you like and you have a month to join in. We are
sponsored by Crafty Ribbon - here is something about them:
    Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none.

Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel?  Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft.  Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all!  Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths.
Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects on our blog,or visit our Inspiration blog,or maybe join in with us at our Challenge blog.  Go on, have a look... It's worth it !

I hope you will join in the fun and look forward to
visiting you all. Thanks for visiting my blog today.

What's your favourite song?

Hi everyone are you all ok?
If this image was me i'd be listening to Avril Lavigne's song 
"Complicated"! What would you be listening to?
I have had a nice relaxed weekend crafting because 
I have my SATS exams this week......I'm so nervous but I have 
done lots of revision so keep your fingers crossed for me!
At least there's something to look forward to because it's
my birthday on Thursday and i'm going to be 11. I can't wait!
I made this card with one of my favourite images called Chelsea and
 i tried to do some shading on the hair, using different 
yellows to make it just right. Well, i'm off to watch "The Voice"
finally the "auditions" are over and it's now the "battles"
i wonder who will win?
I hope you all have a really nice week and the weather 
stays nice!
Love From Rebecca xx
