Two Years Old Today!!!

Oh my goodness I have only just realised that it was 2 years ago today that my blog was born, where has the time gone?  
I've been looking back at some of my very early blog posts and had to chuckle at my cards, I like to think I have come a very long way since then, and hardly ever use peel-offs any

Here are the 2 cards I showed on my very first blog post...

Check out all those peel-offs hehehe!!

Joining the blogging world has been an amazing journey, where I have learnt so much and more importantly made some truly wonderful friends.  To date I have 258 followers and there has been 45,300 hits to my blog...WOW, never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would get that many visits to my blog in a lifetime.  I myself have been a terrible blogger of late I need so many more hours in a day to be able to go visit all the blogs I enjoy to visit, but despite this there are so many of you who regulary pop by and leave such wonderful comments, so thank you to everyone who visits and follows my crafting journey, you make it all so worthwhile.  Hugs xxx

Before you go I also have a card for today....


Digi Iamge - Pollycraft 'Crystal Fairies 1' (*toot-toot* There's a cool summer sale now happening over at the Pollycraft Store!!)

Papers - Basic Grey 'Sugar Rush' (my new papers from Crafty Emma's Store)

Colouring Mediums - Copics & Promarkers (and a touch of Sakura Stardust Clear)

Ebellishments - Ribbon & Flower from stash. Pin from Crafty Emma's Store

Sentiment Butterfly - Craftwork Cards

I am entering this card into the following challenges....

Sketch & Stash - Sketch (my new items are the papers and pin)

The Crazy Challenge - Happy Birthday

Digital Tuesday - Dazzle Me (glittery ribbon and stardust detail on image)

Flutterby Wednesday - Open Theme

Paperplay - Anything Goes

And one last thing....

Just ONE more week to go before the launch of the brand new challenge blog 'Craft Your Days Away'

We still have a fab blog candy going on so please do check it out!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
