CCC Week 32- Scallops

Happy Wednesday evening! i can not believe its almost the end of the week again. The weeks always seem to pass by quickly but this week has gone even quicker than previous ones. I am struggling to stay on top of everything. I have a list of "things to do" as long as my arm. No sooner do i tick one off , do i then have to add another 2!!! one of these days i will catch myself coming back for sure!!

Well as you will be aware its wednesday, and im late posting my CCC card for week 32 which is Scallops! i love scallops and have used my fiskars threading water punch which is one of my favourites and of course my nestabilities oval dies. Once again one of those fabulous die cuts from Lili of the Valley. They are so perfect for me at the moment as it saves me time on colouring! I hope you will join us this week at the CCC Challenge. Go check at the blog here for yourselves, where you will find even more inspiration from my fellow DT members, all very talented i must add, not sure why im involved to be honest!

I havn't made many cards this week, 2 male orientated cards that i hope to blog tomorrow or thursday, but for the time being more cards that i made last week.

Firstly one of those fabulous whiff of joy images, this is one of my favourites! and the papers are from SU. I love these papers, and have been putting off using them, but then i realized i had 2 packets - perfect!
I am always struggling with mens cards but i lvoe these dustin pike images and they are perfect for those mens cards, dont you think? papers im not sure what make they are, infact if anyone can enlighten me i would be very grateful!!

And another one of those gorgeous dragons! and more of the same papers!

Well i must get on with some of my to do tasks!! for anyone waiting for anything from me, i promise i will get round to it shortly!!!! please bear with me a few more days.
Hugs to you all Linda x

Hiya Linda, I feel so bad, it's been a while since my last visit, but it was nice catching up on Facebook the other night!!
I love you cards especially the LOTV topper one you've made beautiful cards with these (I really must get some myself, as you said it saves on time with the colouring already done). I struggle big time with male cards, yours are great, fab image!
I don't know what you are worrying about with your flower arrangement, it looks pretty damn good to me!
Looks like everyone had a nice time at Frankie and Benny's for Jasmine's birthday, lovely pics.
Take care hun,
