I know I have been so quiet and I apologise if I have not left many comments on blogs this week however we have had some really bad news in the family. My Mum has now been ill with secondary breast cancer for a while now, however last week we discovered that has spread to her bones also (as well as her breast, lungs and liver). We are of course devastated but fingers crossed the radiotherapy and chemo will keep things at bay.
Can't life just be so cruel.
On a brighter note...buttons are the theme for this weeks challenge over at Charisma Cards
and the prize this week is sponsored by Simon Says!

Oh my gosh the time just goes before I know it! Busy applying for jobs at the moment as I am due to qualify as a midwife! yay Plus we are looking for a house which is sooo exciting but sooo frustrating grrr.
Here is the card I made for my first challenge with Charisma cardz challenge blog which was very nerve racking for me but I am so pleased with how it has gone. There have been some fabulous entries so thank you to everyone who joined in.

I am a really mixed bag of feelings today! We have just arrived back from our honeymoon from Sorrento so I am so sad to be back as obviously it really does not compare to Italy here! We had such a romantic and beautiful time but all good things must come to an end (so my HUSBAND told me!) Oh my gosh it stil sounds odd to call him that! I am also however very excited to now be a Mrs and although the honeymoon is over there will hopefully be many more happy moments. I also can't wait to see the photos from the wedding and obviously share with you some of our wonderful day.
First I must show you my two latest cards I had made for the DT Charisma cards! I forgot to put them on a scheduled post so here they are...
Firstly this is my design for Lyndsey's lovely Going dotty challenge which has now finished so congratulations to Polly!
The prize is a gift certificate for Simon Says! So gooo on join in.
Now for a liitle taster of what has kept me so absent from the world of blogging... the wedding stuff!
Shown below are the candles that I made (with a little help from friends!) for each and every guest at the wedding. As you can see becaude they have names on I used them as place cards for the tables and as they are pretty too they made fab table decs and then favours for the guests to keep! Ingenious.
Although we are awaiting the photos from the photographer I have had a little look on facebook and seen that already there are photos of our big day! I have put some below so you could see!
Hope you like! Phew that has to be one of the longest posts in hostory! I do however have one last thing to say...
...I am back to the world of blogging! Yay! But this time as the new Roxy Ingamells!
Love to all that I have abandoned recently,

Gosh it seems Blogger doesn't want to play at the moment! Been having real problems with it lately.
Here is the card I made for the DT, better late than never! Loved this theme and it was perfect for an anniversary card I needed to make. The theme is flowers, lace and pearls and there is a fab prize on offer for MFT stamps! So head on over to Charisma Cardz to join in the fun!

Firstly I must start with a HUGE apology to everyone for being a rubbish DT member (especially the girls on the team) I have been so rushed off my feet. Have had my finals to get done for my midwifery (now awaiting results eek) and wedding planning (when I dropped the wedding cake on the floor and sobbed into the crumbs lol).
Now I am back on track and not such a blue bottomed fly I am back with a long awaited card! I must say however I really scrapped the barrell of inspiration for this card and I am not happy with it at all. Head on over and make a better job of it than me! The theme is 'A star is born' and the prize is fab!
I must say I have missed blogging world and can't wait to get back to those lovely evening of just blog hopping and making lots and lots of cards!

Have gone a bit mad for the lace, ribbons and pearls on here but love this modern/vintage mix at the moment. Click on the photos to get a better look as not so clear otherwise!
Had a moment of ickle inspiration as to what I could do with a tiny bit of lace left over! (Must find out where to get more!) Apologies if everybody has already thought of this anyway! I just thought it looked nice and wanted to share!
I twisted it round to make a pasta bow shape:
...and then finished it off with a prima flower, centred with an eyelet and adhesive pearl. Hey presto pretty flower with vintage twist!
