40 Lattice

Im joining in with the new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and as much as nothing on this has actually been stamped, it is fine according to their rules!  Just as well I sigh!
I used my Brother scan n cut to make light work of the lattice & the numbers, die cut some blooms by Tim Holtz for Sizzix and added extra texture with an ivory Viva pearl pen.  
If you would like to join in too, with a chance to win a super prize then here is the link :-

Thank you for calling by and enjoy the rest of your day,

Everything's looking rosy

I'm back again with another card for a couple of different challenges.
This week has been great for me as I got to see my little Grandson Joshua twice, I swear he looks bigger each time I see him even though it was only 2 days between!
I've used a coloured image from Teddy Bo who have some truly gorgeous images and the fact that some are already coloured is a real bonus for those last minute cards.  I've used up some paper scraps and accessorised with card candy.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafts 4 eternity - two of something!
Creative Inspirations - anything goes with an option of a sketch too.

New Challenges

Hello, long time no speak!

I'm going to try to get back into blogging, Ive still been following my favourite ones but have decided to try back at posting myself again!  Eek!
Here is a card I have made for a great nephew, Ive used an image from Lily of the Valley and kept it really simple by adding a little strip of embossed card that I then swiped with a dark silver ink.  The letter and tab are all by QK.

Here is one of the reasons that Ive  not been blogging for the last year at least, please meet my adorable Grandson Joshua.

Here he is aged 5mths and my daughter Laura is SO lucky as he is just such an easy baby and so very happy!  He is not anything like she was as a baby but that wasn't all her fault!  We live an hour apart and I thought it was hard enough before being apart but now it feels even harder as I don't get to see him/them as much as Id like.

Now, if I can remember how to, I would like to enter this into this weeks:
  •  PTW challenge and Ive chosen my take on their Sketch #79
Thank you very much for your visit!

Box of Chocs


I'd like to share a card that Ive made for my niece's birthday in November.  I'm trying to make all remaining necessary cards to the start of next year so I can then get my Xmas box out and begin properly!  Only 4 left to do!

Ive used a cute image from Lili of the Valley - pre coloured perfectly I might add!  The pink polka dot is from Forever Friends and I embossed a small off cut of DCWV card, finishing off with a matching button and silk and it's done.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenge

Post Pal Sophie R


Just had to pop back and share my card that I posted yesterday for a very poorly little girl on the Isle of Wight.

If anyone could please post a card to raise a smile for her then please press on this link.  I think that lots of people wonder what on earth to write inside and all I can say to that is you dont have to write anything other than 'thinking of you from a Post Pal'.

The great image is from Bugaboo and the papers were freebies in a craft magazine.
Hope you enjoy your Sunday!

Christmas Flower


I have another card to share using another digi image from Fred She Said; it is called Christmas Flower Doodledallions.  It is going to my MIL for Christmas so I made the pair (below card also) together so I'm ready!

I was going to leave it with just a plain white base card but felt it needed just something else - you know what I mean! - hence I added some gold mirri corners.  I hope I havent overdone it.

I would like to join in the challenge at 

Sketchy Colours - white and green

Thanks for calling in and have a super weekend!

Right said Fred!

Ok, hands up, who remembers them from the early 90's?!  I sure do!
They sprung to mind when I found amongst my digis some gorgeous floral images from Fred She Said; some that would be perfect for a card for my elderly MIL as she loves flowers.

Here's my card:

I have infact virtually copied the sample card by making a wide border across the middle with the flowers and vine on.  I am on such strong medication that I have virtually no creativity at the moment but I am trying to make myself craft just to push on through it all.  I do hope Fred doesnt mind too much and it isnt for sale, its for me to use to send directly so hopefully that is ok.

There's no escaping the looming Halloween and as I'm trying to get myself slowly back into the card making challenges I've decided to play along.  I've made a card for my great nephew who is 6 and such a character! Last week when visiting his Nanny in hospital after her knee replacement surgery, he was at her bedside when a Dr came to have a look at her knee.  Jayden asked the Dr 'Did you do that to my Nan?', 'No, why?' replied the Dr, 'Coz I'm not happy, just look at it'!!  He is very forward and confident, something that definitely doesn't come from my side of the family but entertaining all the same!

The house image is a freebie from Spyder and the trick or treater is from Momma MC, thank you both for sharing these images with us :)

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cards for Men Halloween
Stamping for the weekend Anything goes
Creative Moments Anything goes/Autumn (halloween is in the autumn)
Papertake Weekly Two by Two (Ive got 2 bats and 2 gravestones)

Monotone Charlie


The weather is super here, it is really bright and clear and the temperature has dropped and I am loving it!  The chill is most definitely welcome from a woman of a certain age!

This card was made using the gorgeous image from Mo Manning and instead of the usual blacks I tried something different.

Mo is an amazing artist and Ive always really liked this one as it can cover so many different occasions, I like versatility!

I would like to enter this card in to the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - autumn colours
Handmade Harbour - men and boys
Crafty Sentiments Design - anything goes

Golfing addict


I just love Bugaboo images, their humour really appeal to me and it was the first stop for me when I wanted to make a card for a certain person.  Meet Gus, he seems to get into all sorts of scrapes!

Ive used Papermania bp's and some Bazzill which I embossed and rubbed back a little to show the checked design. 

Id like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Totally Papercrafts - use humour in your creation

Thanks for calling in, hope you have a super weekend!
