Got a question for you???

Good Morning all, hope everyone is well! Have had family from Scotland staying for a few days, so i've not had too much time for crafting or blogging, just popped on now before work.

Anyway, I wanted to ask you all about taking part in blog challenges - how to go about doing it, and, as a blog challenge newbie, what challenges to look at??

I love taking part in the Docraft challenges, 'cos they can be fab to get the mojo flowing, but thought i might like to have a look at the challenges in this neck of the woods........

from the weekend

here's a couple of cards from the weekend, firstly a card i've made using the gorgeous digi freebie from Digistamp boutique, next up is a bit special as it is officially the 500th card i've uploaded to my docrafts gallery, and to celebrate I am doing a freebie draw, so please feel free to hop over a join in! Lastly a card i've made for a Penny Black challange also on Docrafts.
Have a lovely day all, hope the sun is shining for you too. xx

retirement card

Have made this card today, for a lovely lady at work who is retiring tomorrow. Have used some of my new colorcard cardstock, which has a whitewash finish, embossed it first then sanded it to bring out the colour, had to "borrow" one of the sand paper sheets from hubbys black & decker mouse thingy - hope he doesnt notice, lol!

this afternoon....

had planned to make my brothers birthday card, but got a little distracted by the sheer yumminess of my new goodies!
I've made the first card using some of my goodies from the digi stamp blog candy, including this gorgeous bunny who is a treat to colour!, also the lovely wild rose studio backing papers. This is my mothers day card for my mum
The second is using the gorgeous freebie digi stamp from Pink Gem, this is the mothers day card for my mum from my kids.

Loadsa Goodies !!!

Good Morning bloggypeeps, hope you are all having a lovely weekend. So far my central heating is now working, I received in the post my blog candy prize from the lovely Sally-ann at Digi stamp boutique (will be making my Mums card for next weekend so that will be really useful!), and when i hopped onto docrafts this morning i saw that Janet at has an absolutely adorable free digi stamp on her blog now. It really doesnt take a lot to make me happy, lol!

I am sooooo excited!! I am the winner of Digistamp boutiques spring candy, have had a bit of a rubbish couple of days as our central heating is playing up, but this has put the biggest soppiest grin on my face.
