I trust you all had a very enjoyable weekend, i suspect many of you have some lovely new stash to play with this week after visiting the NEC show in Birmingham. I am so jealous of you all, as i would have loved to have gone, but unfortunately it wasn't to be. I will look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing what you brought and more importantly what you do with it! We are enjoying some fabulous weather here this week, sunshine and warm temperatures. Im trying not to get too used to it as the weather man said it was changing towards the end of the week, typical, i suspect it will be a cold wet Mothers Day! What plans do you all have for Sunday? I'm having my mum to lunch which my hubby will cook. Other than that i have no expectations, i find its best this way, then i can't be disappointed!!!!! I don't want to sound ungrateful but my sons are pretty bad at picking gifts for me! i think ill leave a few hints of the funky kits webshop, although even with that, im sure ill end up with anything BUT crafty stash! Thank goodness for Jasmine, who has much better taste and with each year she gets older, i find my birthdays and christmas's are a little more cheerful, as she actually buys gifts that id like (even if they are just pretty and have no use!), instead of something that will be "useful", like a saucepan or hoover!!!!! She has a strong character, and will argue with her father over what she wants to buy! i had a lovely Build a Bear Bunny for Christmas. My hubby was beside himself, as he thought it was a total waste of money, me i was ecstatic with it! Anyway ladies you probably have hubbys and sons who are a little more thoughtful. Im waffling so ill get on!
CREATIVE CARD CREW CHALLENGE WEEK 2
Tuesday morning again and time for another challenge over at the Creative Card Crew Challenge. This week you are to make a card using no patterned papers. This i have to admit was a challenge for me. However it can be done, maybe not well, but done none the less. My card for this week is using the fabulous whiff of joy mouse and cupcake image, one of my favourites!
I've stickled the flame and icing on the cupcake. Flowers are from imaginese with some white flowers cut from lace trimming. Diamante centres from stash.
This week we have a set of Claire Curds sentiments stamps up for grabs, so we would love to see your designs. Please join us again. Last weeks entries were all gorgeous, and we would like to thank each and every one of you who joined us.
Yesterday was my friend Sallys birthday, as always i'd left making her card to the last minute. I used this lovely Lola Rose image from Pink Petticoat. I so love the downloads available from this site, as they are a real pleasure to colour in.
Papers are from a HOTP pad and the die cute is a Sizzix Bigz die, flowers again imaginese.
Just birthday/Christmas Card Challenge Week 24
I am totally disorganized as most of you know by now. For some reason i managed to lose the card that i made for this weeks challenge. I thought i had posted it on the challenge blog already and was surprised not to see it on this weeks post. So i have to make another one!!! I will be back to post it later this morning.
This week we have this wonderful whiff of joy stamp up for grabs, and a wonderful sketch from very talented Kirstin. So please join us in this weeks challenge, we always enjoy visiting your blogs and seeing what you come up with.
