MAWTT - So 80's

 Hello... it's the turn of Team B over at

and our lovely Lena is hosting the challenge this week with a brilliant theme of.....

  So 80's  
Go crazy with neons or pastels (a la Miami Vice)
black and white geometrics /asymmetrics
whatever you think of when you think of the 80's

I absolutely loved the 80's and have lots of very happy memories of this fab decade!! :-))

I found this wonderful image from Lemon Shortbread... it really made me chuckle as I had a very brief phase in the 80's where I used to wear a red and white polka dot ra ra skirt... teamed with a denim jacket. I also had red shoes with bows on!!! so I cut out two of the hair bows a bit smaller to add to the shoes in the image! Thankfully there is no photographic evidence of me in this get-up!! not that I know of anyway!! Lol.

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's wonderful 80's creations!!
You have until Wednesday 11th May 6pm BST. Three entries per person and please, no back-linking. 

This is a scheduled post as we have builders in doing the kitchen at the moment. I'm sure it will be wonderful when it's completed but it's hard going at the moment. The kitchen is the hub of the house, so it's been quite difficult re-locating all our gadgets. The kettle and brew stuff is upstairs... and in the living room?.... the toaster is on the sideboard, and the microwave is on the TV Unit!!! So at moment we have riveting night's viewing of watching the Chicken Curry going around and around!! ROFL.

I will catch up with you as soon as I can.
Love and hugs

Mother's Day Wobble Card

Hello... hope you are doing ok today? Huge hugs to anyone unwell or going through difficult times...

it seems to have been a long time since I posted, so thought I'd share this card that I made Mum for Mother's Day last month.

I found a CraftsUPrint Sheet in my stash of freebies from magazines.... used it to make up this Wobble Card.... love how it came out and you can add your own little touches. I added my own sentiment and some gems.

Gems: Stash

 Sorry that I haven't had time to visit your blogs very often. Mum is improving slowly but still not back to strength. I finally got my new bed... got a divan this time and am really pleased with it. We're hoping work will begin on our new kitchen soon. Seems like we've been waiting forever, so can't wait for it to be finally done.

Have any of you read or listened to Belgravia? Julian Fellowes has a new online partwork out. You get the first episode free. I listened to it before bed and found it really relaxing. So think I am hooked now :-)
Hope you're having a good weekend
Love and Hugs,
