Tuesday Taggers - The birds and the bees

Well my turn to choose the theme this week as today is my birthday :0) Been a bit cheeky with this one as my crafty buddies tease me that we always end up talking about the other meaning to the "birds and the bees" when Im around so i just had to choose this to tease them a little LOL

I have been amazed by the DT work this week - seems our newbie team members have raised the bar for us as there is some fabulous work been done this week. Dont forget if you like what you see you can always hop over to their individual blogs to find out how their take on the challenge was achieved and what products/ stamps have been used. Just click on their name above their work and it should link you straight there.

Ive decided that I will donate the prize this week so when I post later today about last weeks winner I will post a picture of the prize to be won - as well as the winner of the Birthday Candy.

So first off our GD for this week is Pat who since winning this has joined our part time DT. Heres a little Pat has sent us about herself .

"I'm full-time carer to my husband John who has MS. We have been married 40 years this December and have a daughter, a son and two gorgeous grandchildren, Jessica 9 and Elliot 6.

I have been crafting in one form or another for the past 30 odd years. I really started with decoupage using the cute wrapping paper (mainly Sarah Kay)that was around at the time. I also did sewing, knitting and crochet. When my daughter began dancing I moved on to costume making and sequin sewing (I've been hooked on all things glitter ever since). I've also done cross stitch but moved onto cardmaking about 8 years ago. It wasn't so easy to get lovely materials to work with back then but we are spoilt for choice these days arn't we? A couple of years ago I got into parchment craft but it has been side lined a bit since I started this blogging lark. I really enjoy the whole blog thing and have made some fantastic blogging friends.

My favourite craft expert has to be Jayne Nestorenko and it has been great being involved with her Cute Companion collection for Crafters Companion. She is such a clever lady and a real sweetie.

I love Tuesday Taggers because it has taken me out of my comfort zone and encouraged me to try new ideas."
