Hi all, hope you've all had a lovely gorgeous is this weather!!! Yesterday I painted my front garden fence, once of my sheds and wallpapered one of my lounge walls, a busy old day but there is stuff I wanted to get done as im off on my jollies soon!

For my DT card I have used this adorable H&S image, coloured with promarkers, the polka dot paper is from a paper stack that I found in The Works. So for my dies and punches I have used: Go Kreate circular and scalloped circular dies, X cut border punch, woodware flower punch and a Nellie Snellen label die.

Im still here....just!!

Hi all, well it has been a busy old week with work and the ongoing  redecorating of my lounge, so not had an awful lot of time to craft this week, did manage to squeeze a little bit of time in earlier in the week and made two dt cards for forthcoming challenges and this card..............
how cute is this LOTV stamp.....just adorable, as always have coloured with the promarkers, I really like using blue and beige together, the gingham paper is a freebie download from Bev Rochesters incredible blog, made the sentiment using tempus sans font and rounded off the corners to create tab effect and added a few extra bits and bobs.

Hope the fair weather we enjoyed yesterday will hold out for this morning at least, as hubby is working today, so im planning on swapping the pasting brush for the lawnmower. Only managed to ger my front done last weekend but the grass in my back garden is like shin high..........and I've only got short, little legs so this is not good for me, lol! Im raring to go and crack on with it now, but im thinking that at 7am, my neighbours might not appreciate it!!!!

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
I Iovepromarkers - anything goes
just tracys crafts challenge -anything goes (sorry to hear its your last challenge)
the squirrel and the fox - best friends

have a lovely Sunday xx

Hello all, well lots to tell you all today about The Cutie Pie challenge blog. We have a new challenge, which I will tell you about in a mo, but we also have a DT Call running too. The sad part of this is that we are waving farewell to two of our original teamies, Bettina and Lindy lou, but wish them well for the future and will keep still be able to visit them in blogland anyway. Sooooo, if you love a bit of cute and would be interested in joining our team, then this is your big moment! 
Anyway, on to the challenge and this time its Easel cards........with a sketch:

This is my DT card, and this, I made for Natalie who is not just my boss but also one of my bestie's too. She is daft about Fizzy Moon bears, so I thought this would be perfect for her 30th birthday.

Hi to you all from my wet and miserable corner of Kent.

Ho, hum, so I cant get green fingers today, I guess i'll just have to stop in and craft instead!!

Aud Sentiments........DT call and anything goes!

I posted last week to tell you all about our DT call and anything goes challenge at aud sentiments and this week its time to share team B wonderful and gorgeous cards with you all. This challenge is sponsored by Wild Rose Studio, who also very kindly gave us these wonderful images to work with, so this is my DT card:

The image is called Kitty Picnic and is from the new Annabelles Meadow range. This was coloured with promarkers and a little bit of stardust stickles on the flowers. I found this super yummy paper amongst my mum's stash, but we dont recall the name of it (pity, I'd like more of this!!), sentiments created myself (used tempus sans font), flowers, pearls, ribbon and the hat charm are from stash, the swirly frame thingy was a donated label die that I cut in half (just to see what it looked like!). Am loving using the old Kraft paper at the mo, it just seems to give a different feel to the card.

I would also like to enter this into these challenges:
papertake weekly.........anything goes
the pink elephant.........spring time

Just wanted to close by saying a farewell to the teamies that are standing down from Aud Sentiments, its been wonderful working with you all, thank you for making me welcome when I was the newbie and I wish you all well xx
