What I like about your blog? What's NOT to like? I love your coloring work Lately...but it's the LOs of the family and those big smiles of your boys that I come here for! Oh and to see what you're up to since I don't get to hear as much as I once did...but I forgive you because your a busy chickie and so am I!
I don't have a blog so I don't get the second entry....but I am a follower...have been since we met!
I know a little girly who would like those animal stamps and I know a big girly who would love the Timmy ones and to get to play with Copics! LOL!
Take care! Have a blast at the lake...I know you will!

It's official you are added to my side bar - and I am now a stalker - I mean follower.

What do I like about your blog? Well I am new to card making and reading your blog and seeing your work is so inspirational for a beginner like me.

I have so very much to learn - which I hope to do by following your every post.

Happy holiday

I'm going with the three times lucky option - comment, link and follow!

I love your Anya stamps - Im a bit rubbish at stamping straight/even so love to see people who have that talent and the way you colour them. Is it copics?? (I can only afford Whispers at the moment)!

Hi Ness.

I'm not a scrapper but I love looking at your completed pages. You have a great eye for detail and a fabulous use of colour surrounded by your trademark black and whites. Each page or card you make is creative, visually stimulating and i know a tiny piece of your giant size heart is attached somewhere within. Keep up the good work.

I may not leave comments each time but I do look at your page frequently. Keep on bloggin'!

Happy Crafting

2nd entry

After having a look at your blog.. in depth, I like the way you give a bit of your family in with your craft... love your music choice...

Reading your family's journey touched me deep x

I also like the way that you can use one stamp but create so many different looks.
