The missing 'B' files.....

There are SO many times I plan to add a post about one thing or another, and I either forget, or something comes up, or I simply just sit here and cannot think where to start...... so this is all of THOSE times rolled into one LONG post!!
Traceys swap:
Back in June, Tracey from craftsncapers ran a little card swap... The rules were pretty simple, the theme was 'thanks' and you had to use a pollycraft design somewhere on the card, now really I shouldn't have joined in... but I hate missing out on anything...!!
There were only 5 of us this time, but there is talk of another keep your eyes peeled!!!

Here are both the card I made and the card I recieved:

The Card I made for Sheena

The Card I received from Pam

This is a great way to discover how other people craft, and the techniques they use.... check out Traceys and Emmas blogs to see more swap cards...

A while ago I received a couple of blog awards, but me being...well ME , I haven't yet got round to adding them here, or passing the awards on to others So here goes:

Wylde Women Award

Tracy from ella bella awarded me this, and all I can say is WOOOHOOO!!

1. You can give it to one or one hundred or any number inbetween - it's up to you. Make sure you link to their site in your post.

2. Link back to this blogsite (http:// (so Tammy can go visit all these wonderful women.The Purpose of the Award is: To send love and acknowledgement to women who brighten your day, teach you new things and live their lives fully with generosity and joy.

I'm awarding this to:
