It's Holiday Time at MAWTT (and some exciting news!!!)

Good morning. Hopefully Mr. Blogger is playing nicely today and has posted this scheduled post for me whilst I excitedly make my way to have my first snuggle with my gorgeous new Grand-daughter - Lola Arizona Parker-Gray (has a kinda ring to it don't ya think?)
Thanks for all the lovely congratulations you have left me recently - you are all wonderful and I know I am truly blessed.
This week over at
we have the theme
and the DT were given some images from our sponsor

Not sure why but I kinda struggled with my card this week - maybe my Mojo has departed because of the lack of attention it's been getting - my head is full of Grandchildren (already planning Chr*st*tm*s lol!!!)
So here's my make for the challenge:

Image - Carl Cutie Bear - coloured with PM's
Gorgeous DP's - DCWV - Linen Closet (oh it was difficult to cut into these lol!!!)
Sentiment - PC generated
Buttons from stash

Challenges I would like to enter:

Digistamps4Joy - Boys/Men
Creative Craft Challenge - Restful Colours
Scrap-Creations - Use 3 DP's
Create 4 Fun - Sketch

In my post title I said I had some exciting news to share - well exciting for me anyway!!!
And here it is.......................................................................
I'm in the Best of British supplement with this month's Simply Cards and Papercrafts - yippeee!!!

I would like to thank Anice from Funky Hand for giving me this fantastic opportunity - big thanks hun!
Next goal will be to appear in the magazine itself - one day hopefully!!!

So that's it from me for now - hope to have some new photos to share when I get back from Southsea tomorrow.
Thanks for popping over.
Have a  wonderful day.
