update monday morning****
just to say thanks for all your comments, i`ve been asked to go in work earlier today so i will have to catch up with you all tonight now instead of this morning.
also is anyone else getting lots of spam links in their blog stats.its been happening for a few days and they are all american ones.if they think i`m going to click on their links, then they are WRONG/.
its really doing my nut in,i`ve already had 200 viewings this morning but 85% of them are spam, grrrr.

Sarah said...

Hi ya, what a fab card! Love the colour combo and you've done a fantastic job on the hair - it's brilliant. Sorry don't watch X-factor, probably going against the tide here but I can't stand it! In fact I don't like any of the reality shows, give me a good comedy or sci-fi anytime. In fact I often turn the telly off to go make cards - boring or what!!! Sarah

Hi Coops

Now I know I have been away for a little while .. .. but looking at your blog I feel I have been away for a year!!!

How busy have you been?!?!?!?!

So many gorgeous creations .. .. each one stunning in its own right.

I hope that your Mum and your Sister get on OK. You sound just like me and worry about everyone else far more than you bother about yourself!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my blog .. .. they are very much appreciated.

Love Jules xx

I've had some weird spam on some sites. I get pop ups saying that site has malware or that if I don't put my phone no. in I will lose my account with Blogger!! Like I am gong to give them my phone number!!! I don't think so !!! I've done a virus check on my computer and it is fine, so I think it's just Blogger!!! isn't it always!

Lyndsey Marie said...

Hi Nic, fabulous card love the gorgeous image and her hair is amazing. Love the papers adn colour combo too.
