Good evening everyone.

I haven't updated my blog for a few days now - I decided to have a change and organise some photos for scrapbooks that need doing.
Found several online photo processing websites who had great offers on. I managed to buy 145 prints for about £6 including delivery - result!
I'm quite looking forward to doing the scrapbooks - my crafty mojo did take a downward swoop lately and I think that was because I was overdoing it - spending too much time using my brain!!!! (yes, I know that's difficult to believe!) but it's true. It becomes very cerebral (check me out for using a big word...) when you are having to think of several designs a day - poor you, I hear you say. HAhahahahaha, yeah right!

However today, before we held a birthday tea party for......wait for it.......drum roll son-in-law who was 34 yesterday!...yes, I know......I made a card for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blogspot - Sketch 43.
The bunny in the plant pot is such a cute image from Somebunny to Love which I coloured with good old Spectrum Noir markers and the little flowers I sprinkled with pink glitzy glitter but they don't look as sparkly on the photos.

Busy Bee - That's Me!!!!

Afternoon everyone.

First off, let me tell you I hate those days when everything happens at once; those days when you could have done to stay in bed. The reason why i'm whingeing is because this morning just went belly-up. House phone and mobile ringing in unison, door-bell, visitors.......grrrrr! Every other day this week, nothing will happen - so why does it have to all go off at once? I just cannot cope!

So, I did eventually sit down in my 'sanity' room and make this card to enter into these challenges :

Less is More Wk 159 challenge - Theme - Masculine

Artistic Inspirations - challenge #79 - Theme - Anything Goes/Masculine.

I hope it's suitable for both challenges!

Hi everyone (if there's anybody there do feel free to leave a comment!!!!!)

Today has been a peculiar sort of day - after getting up early and showering I did lots of housework and eventually sat down to make a card at lunchtime!
To be honest, the winter Olympics do take my mind off other things! It's hard to craft and watch bobsleigh at the same time
So, at some point this afty, I decided to make this card. I used my Spectrum Noir markers for the image and highlighted it with sparkly glamour dust.and I'm entering it into these challenges :-

Delicious Doodles - #75 Ribbon/Bling

Addicted to Stamps - #82 Make Your Mark
