**Blog Anniversary Candy**

**Candy Now Closed!** Hi everyone! It's now been a whole year since I started blogging! And to celebrate I've put together some goodies for one of my lovely followers to win! Blogging really has been one of the best things I've ever done! It gives me so much happiness and is helping me through a very tough time in my life!  I've now spent the last 3 and a half years severely ill with ME, bedridden, in a dark quiet room, unable to tolerate any light, sound or movement. I'm too ill for any visitors, not even my family! The curtains are always closed I just have a dim lamp and wear sunglasses and my family have to be really quiet in the house. I spend most of the day resting or sleeping with severe exhaustion, and have 3 short periods after each liquidised meal where I do a little bit of crafting which I super love!

M.E. Awareness Day (Tuesday 12th May)

Hi everyone! As its M.E. Awareness Day today I wanted to make a blue card for the occasion! I chose this stamp as I feel like with ME I've had my "wings" taken away.

There's so little knowledge of ME, GPs aren't educated on it and always

Welcome Princess Charlotte! (Royal New Baby Card)

Hello! Yep you read right... I just love a royal celebration and I've made a new baby card for the birth of Princess Charlotte :-) I'll be posting it to William & Kate in the morning! I sent one for the birth of Prince George too and they always send out a thank you to everyone! When they left hospital she was wearing cream wrapped in a white blanket so I wanted that as the colour scheme, with some pretty British bunting and buttons! I used: Stamp - LOTV Promarkers Satin ribbons - Ribbon Girl Cream Lace - Live & Love Crafts Docrafts Union Jack buttons Crown, hearts & banner cut out from Forever Friends British Paper Pad Background Papers - Tesco Wrapping paper! I liked that the bunting paper was slightly cream and the bunting is girlie and Lacey! Fits with the lace print paper and cream lace perfectly! Isn't she gorgeous!
