I've been tagged by Natty K!!!!!!!!

The middle Name Game

These are the rules:-

You must post the rules before you give your answers.
You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name.
After you've been tagged, you need to up-date your blog with your middle name and answers.
At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and need to read your blog for details.

Ok here goes!! I don't have a middle name, my maiden name was Smith

S for September, the month I was born

M for May, a very special month, I got married in this month, Ryan & Georgia-May (2 of my children) were born in this month

I for Inkspots, a craft shop I love to visit.

T for Thomas, my eldest son

H for Hilary, my mum, who past away nearly 12 years ago.

The five people I am going to tag are Veronica (sbs 11 sister), Jamie (sbs sister), Toni (sbs 11 sister), Lisa (lavender stamper) and Chrissy (Chrissy Marie card crafts). Hope I have done this correctly. Thanks Natty K! xx vicki xx

Veronicas' challenge

Evening all, my sbs11 sister, Veronica, set a challenge this week to make button fairies. Not having heard of these before, let alone make one. Here is what my daughters and I can up with. Sorry about the pic, you can't really see the feathers, or sparkly bits, but for a first attempt it's ok (ish)

Queen Kat Designs

Evening crafting buddies, I'm feeling rather chuffed, if a little anxious and unsure because I've received an e-mail from QKD offering to feature me as Blogger of the week/day. Considering I've only set my blog up five days ago and this being all new to me, I wondered if anyone could shed a bit more light on the situation. It sounds great but any advice would be greatfully received, Thanks peeps. Take care everyone xx vicki xx

sisterhood of the blogging stampers 11

Well it's official, I have joined the sbs-11 and am looking forward to 'meeting' all my new sisters. I've already posted a few things about myself but here's a few more getting to know me facts.

I hate ironing, baked beans, liars and bad manners (it costs nothing to say your please and thank yous) I love spending quality time with my family. Chocolate. Old films (Doris Day films). 80's music. Coyote Ugly and Holiday are also fab films. I used to work in my daughters school as a teachers aide. I'm rather nervous about sbs11 as I'm not really sure what to do and am not very good with a computer, but love making cards and scrapbooking. I spend way too much on crafting goodies, but hey who doesn't, I often buy duplicates products, one to use, the other to admire......don't laugh!!! you know what I'm talking about, cos you do it too He! He! He!

Duran Duran or Spandau Ballet

I woke up this morning with my radio alarm clock playing Duran Duran New moon on Monday, which just so happened to be my ALL time favourite Duran song.

This left me feeling all nostalgic throughout today.

As a teenager, I was a huge Duran fan (phwoooarr Roger Taylor, the drummer). Whilst my best mate (Leigh) was a huge Spandau Ballet fan.

So this got me thinking, which one did you prefer, Duran or Spandau??? Who did you fancy the most? Which was their best song? Would be could to do a poll to see who comes out on top.

40th birthday

Made this for my cousins 40th, her husband is taking her on a shopping trip to Paris, thought this image was very appropriate. Rubber Romance stamps, Shabby Princess papers. Thanks for looking. xx vicki xx

Have had fun with these little cutie's, trouble is I don't know when to stop he! he!

My first delivery from QVC craft day has just arrived. Wish I had time to play with it, but I've got a busy day today. I've now got plenty of ribbon and chipboard alphabets. Still awaitin a few more items, including more papers packs and my crop a dile, I can't wait. I would also like to take this opportunity in thanking everyone for their lovely comments and words of encouragement, especially to Lisa from lavender-stamper.blogspot for her camera advise. Will be back later

Thanks a bunch.

Here's another Sugar Nellie card I've recently made, sorry there are plenty more, shame my photography isn't up to much. xx vicki xx
