Hi all!
Hope you've not all got the monday morning blues...or afternoon blues as it's now 2.34pm!
I was up and out early as I went to the dentist with my son and his appointment was 9am, followed by a light breakfast at The Leyland Lion (Wetherspoons) and 2 coffees - which helped wake me up!!!
Since coming home I've managed to make a little card for the Monday Greetings challenge at Outlawz Challenges.
The challenge is to add texture, (and a greeting of course!) so I have! I've used embossing on the paper, ribbon and lace aswell as gemstones - all different types of texture.

Make a Wish!

Happy Saturday to you all!
Hope you have something nice to do this weekend. We are having yet another knees-up! His nibs' birthday was on Thursday so we are having a party tonight -the usual crew plus booze and munchies!
Quite looking forward to it actually :)

Anyhow, onto the business of the day!
I bought this image of Birthday Milly from -Pink Gem Designs who do have a fab selection of digital images to purchase and download.
I coloured her with Spectrum Noirs  she is so sweet!

I'm entering this into the Friday challenge at Outlawz Challenges

Green (and not with envy!!!)

Hello again!
I've been as busy as possible today making the following card for entry into oodles of challenges!
I used a free stamp I got with a cardmaking magazine recently and coloured it with the ever faithful
Spectrum Noir markers in lime, lilac and warm brown.
Sadly I didn't make a note of the pens I used but there were about 5!!!

As you all know by now I actually enjoy colouring images and this was no different! It's a lovely image and I hope everyone else likes it too!

Good day peeps,

Don't know about you but i found myself really frustrated yesterday as I could only manage to make 1, yes one, card for a challenge. I do try and aim for 2 (doesn't always happen!) and normally I don't mind only managing one as I've usually been doing other things. Sometimes other things NOT in my craft-room (for craft-room look under "spare back bedroom!").
Who invented housework anyhow? And who thought it would be a good idea to give the human race dust? By the time I've managed to dust around the living room etc, the dust seems to be settling back where I started from!!!
It really is a thankless and worthless task.
Love hoovering tho!!!!
Anyhoo, I'm hoping to get some craft done today. Might even carry on with the scrapbooking - Lord only knows what today will bring so........bring it on!
