Hi all.
Well, what a lovely busy weekend it has been.
My son is 19 today and he had a party with his friends here last night which we (me, partner, daughter and her husband) crashed at about midnight! Had lots of fun and everyone was a little delicate this morning!
Still, it didn't stop us going to the car boot for some bargains first thing.
Had alot of housework to sort out too after last night! We all went out for a lovely meal with family and friends this afternoon and. as the weather was lovely all day, we sat in the sun for a little then after the meal we all came home for birthday cake and coffee!
And now I'm pooped! Lying in bed, typing up this post and watching football!
So, I have just realised I've won another challenge this week - this time at - which is lovely! A prize is always welcome, along with the knowledge that you must be in it to win it!
Happy Sunday eve peeps,

Hi peeps!
I hope to have something to show you all soon - I've been poorly for a day or two and haven't really had the inclination to make anything or even to do much at all!
Never mind - it looks like i can see the light at the end of this goddarn long tunnel so....I'll be back!!!

Polly & bunny

Hey again!
Have just finished a card I've made for these challenges :

Pile It On #25 - Cute - can't get much cuter than Polly~!
613 Avenue Create #77 Anything goes / Pink - pink within the paper and embellies
Use Your Stuff - #141 Texture - Fabric pink floral ribbon
Melonheadz friends - Use a kid image/For kids - Polly
Crafting From The Heart #24 - Anything Goes

I haven't had much time to make lovely things today as I've spent the bulk of the day photographing and listing items on ebay - 35 altogether!
My wardrobe has been full of lovely things which I just don't wear anymore and it seemed daft to have them hanging around collecting dust so------ebayed!!!
So now I'm pooped and I'm off to bed!

Kraft card Hanglar Stanglar!

Hello all!
Don't be put off by the title! I'm just referring to the card I made yesterday for the challenge at : -
Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia blogspot #97 Use Kraft card

I like these images. I think they are well drawn and are very clear for colouring. In other words, they're not too fussy with lots of lines which get in the way of shading.

Here's my little girl with strawberry!

Sunny Monday

Hello peeps
This is my 2nd post of the day - my 1st post was a scrapbook page which you can have a look at if you check the left hand side bar (that's where I list my pages!)
I made an uber cute card yesterday and had to finish it today as the world cup footy got in the way. No, not my other half jumping up and down you might think,! I'm an utter sports fan! If it moves, watch it!!!!
So, lately I've watched a lot of sport but done less crafting (my bad) :(
But, here I am going on and you haven't seen the card yet - what am I like?

Isn't she cute?

I used an image from Lacy Sunshine stamps which I was fortunate enough to win in an earlier challenge.
Spectrum Noir markers
Martha Stewart punch
Fiskars punch
Generic paper, ribbon and bling
Mulberry paper flowers
Pink glitter

I'm entering the following challenges :
