Belt up!!!!

Good morning.
It is a fabulously sunny day today but a little windy - GET SOME WASHING OUT!!!
I'm obsessed with it. I really am!!

Anyhoo, onto my card this morning.
This is a very simple CAS card which fits into the challenges at

Sick Bird!!!

Good evening all.
Here is my lovely, yet sick, birdy card for this weeks challenge at i {heart} card sketches #64 - Twist, paper piecing.

My poorly bird is coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and paper pieced with some paper which I've had in my stash since last year and haven't loved it enough to use it - but now I have and I think it worked really well here.
The pill bottle, pills, hot water bottle, thermometer and "nappy" are all paper pieced. I've added some glitter and bling for fun!

Happy 1st of May to everybody!
If you read my last post you would have noticed how much I really wanted to do some more washing today - but I can't as the rain is coming down! That fine stuff that wets you right through...

So I finished a card I started yesterday instead.

I'm entering my birdies on a fence into the challenges at

 Friday Sketch Challenge - here's the sketch

Good evening all!
Hope you're all having a lovely week upto now.
I've been uber busy finishing my entries as GDT for the Outlawz Challenges for May and eventually submitted them yesterday.
Hope they were ok!
Today I've done some more washing as the weather was ok again and hopefully tomorrow will stay dry as I just can't wait to do more washing!!! Only joking - it's just so nice to get the washing out on the line especially after my son cut the grass this evening! Front lawn too. Wonders will never cease!

I've been in the craftroom this afternoon making this card for the challenges over at Tuesday Morning Sketches

This is the original sketch to follow :

and also the challenge at Cardmaking and Papercraft which requires stripes!!!

So here's my entry

Sunny Sunday!

Good morning to you all!
It's a gloriously sunny morning - washing out on the line already!!!

I haven't posted for a few days as I've been distracted with other things that life has to offer but I've found a crafty half hour now so I thought I'd pop in and leave a line or two.

I decided to have a look around at some of the challenges I've entered and -----guess what? What? I hear you ask!---I was chosen as a top 3 winner at CAS - colours and sketches!!!

here is my entry

My winners badge is proudly displayed on the right-hand sidebar!

Have a great sunday!
