Some Challenges

Friday again, and guess what? its raining!!!! My daughtter has some kind of sports tournament at school today, im keeping my fingers crossed they will cancel it in this weather. Certainly don't need her catching a cold. Some of the family are already suffering from some kind of stomach virus! touch wood im managing to bypass it at the moment.

Well have been busily joining in with some of the fabulous challenges this week, desperately trying to keep myself motivated with my crafting. Looking forward for some more crafting time over the weekend. We have nothing planned this week, other than Rocky Bears booster vaccinations.

Will be doing some serious blog hopping over the weekend, to see what you've all been up to. Sorry ive fallen behind again x

Sugar Bowl Challenge - Sketch from Kathy

What a great sketch to work with this week Kathy, thank you! Have used my distress inks and perfect pearls to creation the back ground to try and incorporate the shabby chic, not sure ive managed it?? A simple image only highlighted not actually coloured.

Distress stickles around the edge of the circle and highlighting the flower, with a diamante centre.

The sentiment was printed on my printer (before i ran out of ink!)

Completely different to my last card. I love these easel cards and this is for my sons girlfriend Kelly, who is celebrating her 18th birthday today.
They are going away for a two night stay in a hotel in Chelmsford this afternoon, wish i was going, could do with a break myself!
These Lili of the Valley die cut images are invaluable for quick cards, im using them more and more these days, and i just adore this bunny and that delicious cupcake.

Sentiment printed on my computer, decorated with my new flower punches and some handmade flowers sent via a rak from my lovely friend Amy.
And finally a couple of cards for Donna's Cards for Men Challenge.

More of these Lili of the Valley Die cut images, using some distressing and some K & Co Papers.

Sentiments done on my PC

So thats it from me for today, back later maybe with some more challenge cards, fingers crossed!
