Make It Monday #58 - Did you miss me???

Well, it's been a while but I'm back!!

Did you miss me?

It has been just over a month since I was here last and what  month it has been. Firstly my family was struck down with a particularly bad bout of the flu, knocked us all for six for a couple of weeks but luckily we all recovered in time for us to head off on our family holiday down south to see my Parents.

We had an absolutely fabulous time but now we are back home and back in to routine. I sat down at my craft desk this weekend for the first time in weeks but sadly my mojo appears to be still away on vacation,lol.

I am excited to be back in the Make It Monday saddle today though and looking forward to seeing all the fabulous entries that you link up this week.

Make It Monday #58 is now open

I managed to come up with a sweet little note card and pillow box combo for this weeks MIM using some pretty digi paper from our sponsor.

I have used the floral design from the Polly Anna collection

This week we are sponsored by the lovely Mandy over at

Mandy is so kindly offering the Primrose Path digi paper collection to our winner!

To be in with a chance of winning this fab prize all you have to do is leave a little blog love for an entrant on this week's Make It Monday linky party. Be sure to mention you saw them on MIM.The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning.

Ok now, on to my favourite entry from last week.............

Unfortunately with all the unpacking, washing, grocery shopping etc I had to do this week after our holiday I didn't get to visit as many entries as I would have liked to. But of the ones I did get to visit my favourite was..................

Created by Bella

Isn't it just amazing?! I'm in serious need of that sweet little handbag!!

Well done Bella, a stunning creation! Thank you for sharing with us at Make It Monday.

This weeks MIM linky party is now open. The Design Team have come up with some positively gorgeous cards to get you all inspired.
Please come along and join in the fun.
Thank you for stopping by today.
