    Making cards - Ideas (part 5) 29th Sep 10 at 11:17 PM
    Welcome to the Card Craft thread where there are many members who are new to card making as well as the more experienced members who love helping others out on their path to making cards. If you are new to this craft please do post and somebody will be along with some advice for you

    Please note this thread is now a continuation of an original thread on making cards - Part 1, the second thread - Part 2 , the third thread - Part 3, and the fourth thread here - Part 4, it may be a good idea to look these first for advice or ideas.

    OMG betterlife , would scare me too, big hugs to him and to you. Sounds like the docs have things in hand with medicine and the inhaler xxx

    Louby, what a blinking nightmare *rolls eyes*, why are some people like that? Well I hope you had a great night and rise above her pettiness It's her in the wrong not you x

    Betterlife......... hope your son is improved this morning,once the antibiotics kick in he should be on the mend.big hugs to you both.
    Louby,......... What a palaver,some people act like 5 years old,ignore her pettiness ,if you can ,she,s not worth the effort as far as I can see .
    Hope everyone else is feeling fine,such a lovely sunny frosty morning here in South Wales ,makes me want to go shopping today.See if my OH agrees when he gets up.
    Been colouring more Sara Kay images,put 2 on a little card,but thinks its lacking in some embellishment ,I,ll maybe add some buttons to keep in the country spirit,its on my bloggy thing
    hugs to all you lovely virtual friends.

    Louby, you may have knots in your tum having to face this *itch but you must rise above it as rainmac said. She is defo jealous of you, probably 'cos you're a lot younger than her by the sounds of it. Just smile sweetly at her and say 'Hello' she is waiting for a reaction from you but just don't go there, you're better than that. Remember that those who read her face book page and believe what she's written are just her old cronies.

    If all else fails, just remember me and PepPop with her cuttlebug will be there for you, just keep this thought in your mind and this will keep you smiling
    Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning the devil says, "OH CARP, SHE'S UP"!

    Thanks I'm affraid i took the bait a little and replied to her status as her cronies were asking who she ment, i just said if that was aimed at me then it was no big deal or secret. She replied back but i am leaving it now as it is going to get even more stupid.

    Her gang of 3 where having a good cackle this morning. Just don't know why i am always the bad guywhen i haven't done anything wrong. I know not everyone can get on in this world but i am lovely honest and i just dn't know why she doesn't like me.

    It's going to be really awkward as we have 2 parties with each other this weekend.

    Anyway back to crafting. I have just had my order from creative treasures. It came all wrapped in tissue and tied with a big bow, How cute. That has mad me smile anyway.

    went a bit mad on the candy but only got 2 packs of flowers! what was i thinking? really wish i had got a few more.

    Oh Louby . Have a big hug. Sounds like she has a very bad dose of the green eyed monster . She must be very insecure if she feels the need to express her jealousy so publicly. Stupid woman. I have a cuttlebug too if you need more help swinging it .

    Betterlife . Hope your little one feels better soon . It's awful when they are ill you just feel so helpless. Hugs to you too .

    I had a good laugh this morning carly signed to me that her mouths broken her mum said she keeps telling her it's poorly so we had a look and her throats all red poor thing. The ammount she chatters now it doesn't sound broken lol.

    Congrats to our latest winner . Deffo a fab prize.

    Been reading some of your blogs - what an amazingly talented lot you are


    I have just invested in a load of copic caio marker pens and been looking for a good digital stamp website so I can print off loads of blanks to practise with the copics. Mine never look as good as the tutorials on You Tube

    dallam Your patchwork cards are lovely and really clever idea too

    Louby - vent away!! That's so pathetic!! Standing by with cuttlebug at the ready just point me and Wifey at her... It's at times like this I think Facebook should be banned. I take it you can't report her or anything (not on facebook so don't know all the ins and outs of it) Isn't it a pity that schools don't have a bullying policy for parents! She's bullying you!! Ooh I feel my blood starting to boil - I mean do these people have nothing better to do. If she's so desperate for a dinner invite I'd asked her and put some laxative in her food - that'd shut her up

    betterlife Aww poor wee soul - sending you hugs. You must have got a fright. I hope he gets better soon. Clicked on your poll too.

    arytdoll love you new avatar

    Congratulations ******

    craftygranny Aww gentle hugs to Carly and I hope her broken throat mends soon

    Off for a wander round blogland - catch you later.
