Share it on a Sunday...

Hello blogging fans...well time has run away with me today and I haven't seen much sun...only when I walked to Tesco and back!!

Well as it's Sunday that means another SOS over on the Sugar Nellie my share this week is...wedges and platforms!! I just love my wedges and platforms...whether they are in boot form or them, maybe it's because I am a midget and they make me feel 10 feet!! So I spied with my little eye on Pinterest some lovely big sandals and after checking them out I felt the urge to buy a new pair too....what do you think...

these are the ones I bought go with my new size 10 dress!!

Share it on a Sunday...

Good morning Sunday bloggers. What a lovely day in bonny Scotland, so I am making the most of it as it won't last I'm sure. I have all the washing almost done and hung out, but that means I will have a huge ironing pile...but never mind I hate having washing hanging around the house, it's so messy looking!!

Anyway today we have another Share it on a Sunday over on the Sugar Nellie blog. Karen had a little rest last week but she is back with her share from Pinterest today. So for me SOS I have spotted these little trinket boxes...they are lovely and take me back to when I was little and my granny had a collection of trinket boxes...

This one looks like the kind that my granny would have had...

This one is a bit more modern but I'm sure if my granny was here today she would have this in her collection..


Pop back later for my birthday candy(running late with that)

Sugar Bowl Challenge #84

Good morning sugar fans and my scheduled post....I am still trying to get used to my new Monday to Friday shift. Being off at the weekend is good though as my friend and I had a wee unexpected visit to the House of Sugar last Saturday which was really fab. The scenery on the way up and down was simply breath taking and if I can work out how to get the photos from my phone to the PC then I will let you see the snow covered mountains. We met Karen and her daughters and Erika and Kate, they were all so lovely. Karen even gave us the guided tour of the shop and where Mark , our Funky Kit man does his online orders...I would so love to work there. Now if any of you are in the area and feel the need to pop in to the House of Sugar...omg you will be spoilt for choice, Karen has such a variety of products on sale....

Today's challenge over at The Sugar Bowl is "anything goes" so you can use whichever layout and theme you like but you need to use a Sugar Nellie stamp.

As always the prize for one lucky winner picked at random is 4 Sugar Nellie stamps from Funky Kits....

....but if over 100 entries then the prize increases to 6 stamps.

For my card I have used Butterfly Girl from sugar Nellie which I coloured with copics, the papers from MME - On the Sunny Side, the flowers have been cut with different rolled MFT dies, I also cut a little dinky flouish out too and added a couple of pins behind. I added some ribbon and a charm to finish off...

Pop back tomorrow to check out my birthday candy!!

Share it on a Sunday...

Happy Sunday, I can't believe how fast the weeks are going ion as it only seems like yesterday I posted last weeks SOS over on the sugar Nellie blog.

I have always been fascinated by eye make up and when I'm going out I always have my eye make up on, not to the standard below I hasten to add, but they all look so glam so here's a few I have selected to share...

I could see me having this done for a Christmas night out or maybe a 70's night!!
these are amazing!!

another night out...perhaps!!
