Challenge 13 - The Crafty Pad and Quick Cards

What a gorgeous day it is, the suns out and its warm, ive got the conservatory doors open already and its only 9.20!! The bright morning had me awake and up at 6.00am this morning, just as well as i hadn't done my card yet for this weeks Crafty Pad Challenge Week 13!

With covering the shop yesterday there was not very much time to craft. Jasmine kept me company, but the shop was quiet, no doubt everyone was enjoying themselves at the NEC. For those of you lucky enough to go i hope you had a fabulous time, with lots of crafty stash to bring home and play with!!!

So this week i have used one of the fabulous stamps from Debbies teddy range, this is obviously teddy with flowers. I have coloured him with pro-markers, i've glazed the flower although its not clear from this photo, sorry.

The main flower is from Anna-Marie designs, and the flowers surrounding it are sequins highlighted with stickles. Sentiment is from my good old pc!

The background paper is one of Debbies own downloads, polka dot orange. Isn't it adorable?

This week we used the following sketch, have fun with it ladies.

If you do decide to enter this weeks challenge you have the chance of winning this fabulous glitters and sequins, aren't they gorgeous?

So Friday evening i had a bit of a crafting bash, and made this quick cards. I love this pink petticoat download, Lola rose is so gorgeous isn't she? papers are from a DCWV stack i believe. Flowers are prima and brads from Poppicrafts.

Sentiment is from a TAC stamp set.

Another quick card using the Lola Rose design and the mat is cut from the Go Kreate range this one is Frame Pointy ~1. This are a dream to cut with. The flourish is a sizzix bigz die.

Another quick card using one of the images my youngest son coloured this time.

Again a Leanne Ellis image coloured by my middle son! papers are unknown. Flowers again sequins.

This morning i have some dreaded housework to catch up with. Also going to tidy and dust round my crafting space before inking up my new Magnolia stamp club stamps that arrived yesterday !! yippeeee!! so excited as they are gorgeous images this time round.
Hope you all have a fabulous day. My hubby is off for a day of golf, so i am in for a nice relaxing day!
Back later i hope, hugs Linda x
