Birthday Pressies

Yesterday was a big ceremony to not only celebrate the London Olympics 2012 but my birthday, how special to have fireworks, I'm sure they were just for me.
My lovely Friends in Stitching group pressie was put together by Chookyblue, Chook has done an outstanding job and I'm so glad she decided to part with the bag cause I  love it! Thank-you Chooky.
 
Inside was also a bundle of her cards, some delicious mustard, Chooky's recipe and maltesers and you'd be surprised o hear I haven't eaten them yet, probably because I've also been unwell the last few days. I'm feeling much better now and to top off my birthday I won a giveaway over at Amy's blog!

Now to crafting at my place, it's been going on in dribs and drabs. Recently I purchased some Tim Holtz Distress Markers, these are great, they act a bit like watercolours (must get some decent watercolour paper), here I've used them with some stamped images, I need more practice.
There's some great clips on youtube on how to use them and other Tim Holtz products.I'm off work all this week so I'm sure I can find some time to play some more.
Cheers!!
