Some of my favourites....+ Anyone for Anya

Shimelle suggested we blog about some of our favourite things.....I s'pose some things stay favourites for years.....and others change by the week.......like favourite papers!!! My favourite treat when I'm out is a Costa mocha....sometimes with one of their delicious chocolate crunch thingies [shhhhh].

My favourite magazines are Craft Stamper....full of such wonderful projects.....by such talented crafts people.....have just got this month's........and loving it.

And for scrapbooking....the wonderful Scrapbook Inspirations......and how sad is it that this is now going out of publication......the next issue is the last.......be sure you go and get it if you're a scrapbooker.
I love reading.....when I have the time....never enough of that......my tastes are definately not highbrow........the more blood and gore the better.....crime thrillers......am loving Karen Rose.....have just read 'You Cant Hide......couldn't put it down........a 'must read' if you like this type of thing
Another favourite thing of mine is 'freebies'.....there's some great sites out there to download freebies from......I love www.digifree.blogspot.com where they update the freebies every day......there's loads for scrapbookers and cardmakers..... www.ikeagoddess.blogspot.com is another that updates every day.
And finally.......blogging......I visit loads of blogs.....some occasionally....and some frequently......for the most beautiful.inspirational cards I visit Tab's blog.........and as a scrapbooker I love the inspiring Ali Edwards ........but there are just soooooooo many wonderful blogs out there.....a big thank you to all of those I enjoy visiting.
On slightly the opposite vein.......Anyone for Anya want to see a card using the colours of your national flag.......this was difficult for me......I don't really do red and blue together......and I used the sketch on Sketch Saturday.........with 3 little squares on it.........a layout type I use for scrapbooking,but never cardmaking.........so well out of my comfort [favourites!!!!] zone......good to make yourself do that sometimes.......and I think I like the result.

Anya was coloured with SU watercolour crayons and blender pen......papers are digi downloads.....flowers Doodlebug.......PM gems.......Craftwork Cards card candy........ribbon from stash.
Off out tonight to my scrapbook meet.....scrapping some more of my Cornwall pics I think.

Why does a cup of coffee bought in a coffee shop when you are out shopping taste sooooooo much better than anything you can make at home? I love that you picked a 'Costa' coffee, I much prefer that to Starbucks!

Jacky I have always enjoyed visiting your blog but its definitely getting better or am I just a nosey cow lol. Couldn't be doing with that book, bit of a pansy when it comes to those things! Love the card, it has come up great with those colours and that great sketch. Enjoy your class.

I like reading Karen Rose too. I've got Kill for me ready to take on holiday with me. You can't beat a bit of blood and gore, eh?
