So I'm still not feeling great but everytime I go to my desk I keep seeing this little fellow sitting there. I was at my friend Gill's last week and she gave me another lesson in water colouring and he has just been sitting on my desk since I got back waiting to be used. This card is for the Friday Sketchers Challenge no 30. It also fits the Arty Girlz Challenge 62 which this week is your favourite colours. Mine are definitely Chocolate and Cream.The stamp is from Forever Friends

Ok so this is my entry to Papertake Weekly Dawny's Sketch 3.I just love this Clarity Stamp as you may have noticed I've used it before. The dress is placed on glitter card which doesn't show to well in the photo.
I thought I would do it now whilst I had a little time on my hands. It's a certain friends special birthday tomorrow so we are off to the a Chinese in Romford for lunch. I also have more christmas cards to do and a calligraphy project to finish by Wednesday if I can find the time.

I can't believe Friday Sketchers challenge has come around again. Where has the week gone. I thought I would make a masculine card by way of a change this week. Just as I was making it the postie came with my stamps from Papirdesign which I was lucky enough to win they other week. They are gorgeous and I can't wait to have a play, so watch this space. I was almost tempted to stop this card and make another using them but as I had started I had to finish it. The stamp and sentiment are both from Penny Black

I've had a bit of a cold this week but have finally found the energy to do another card. This is for the A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 26. This weeks theme. was anything flowers.
The front of the card is cut diagonally and the flowers arranged overlapping the edge. I then added a further flower on 3d foam to the top right hand corner which is really the inside of the card. The flower stamps is from Sugar and Spice and the hedgehog is a Penny Black stamp.
The picture is a little blurred due to my shaky hands today. I'll try to take another in daylight tomorrow.

Two cards in one day is a bit of a record for me. My excuse is that it's been raining nearly all day. This is for Papertake Weekly Dawnys Sketch 2.

Well Dave has finally returned from the Classic Car Show with the camera just in time for me to photograph this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge entry. I was also the lucky person randomly selected for last weeks prize. I can't wait to have a little play with the stamps when they arrive. For this card I used another stamp from Lili of The Valley. Yes I'm still playing with my new set of stamps. This little fellow is called Biscuit isn't he adorable. My friend gave me some tips on water colouring which I really appreciated so thanks Gill.

I needed a break from Christmas cards so this weeks Spoon Full of Sugar challenge was ideal. I also discovered some lovely images and stamps over at Polly Craft Designs I love this picture of a lion from them it's so suitable for a child's birthday card. He looks very friendly to me what do you think? I created the stripey paper using the colours from the lion in PSP. Polly Craft Designs also have a Monday challange which this week is to have three circles on a card and to use a Polly craft design image. So this card also neatly fits that challenge.
It was only when I had made it that I realised hubby had gone off to the NEC Classic Car show with the camera so I had to scan the card. This means it doens't really show that the 1 and the Happy Birthday are on 3d foam.

I began having withdrawal symptons from not doing any challenges over the weekend as I was not feeling too well. So to make up for lost time this is my entry for the Mojo MondaySketch 60 It was also another excuse to play with yet another of my new Lili of the Valley stamps.

Another day another challenge this time over at Friday Sketchers Challenge no 27.
It was a good excuse for me to use yet another Lily of the Valley stamp. I do like these cute animals. The picture doesn't really show the glitter on his nose, tail and head. I will try to take a better photograph tomorrow in daylight when hopefully my hands will also be a little bit less shaky.

Well finally found some time today to do another challenge, whilst thinking about what to say in my two minute speech that I have been asked to make tomorrow.
Another great sketch this week on Challenge 24 over at A Spoon Full of Sugar. I just love this little bear from Lili of the Valley.

Well As warned I have become addicted to the challenges. This is my entry for Mojo Madness challenge 59 over at Poetic Artistry.
It's also my effort at recycling as the snowman came off of an old Christmas card from last year. I just love looking through my old cards to see what I can recycle into other cards. All I did was add a bit more glitter around the edges.

Well I've had a busy weekend trying to catch up on boring things like housework and preparing for genealogy students this morning,so I've not had a lot of time to make any cards.
This is not for any challenge just a simply card I quickly made to chill out after a busy morning.The coat hanger was a bit fiddly to make being so small but it gives it that extra little touch.

Time for another Christmas card. This time I have decided to do the Friday Sketchers Challenge.
I cut the oval out and stamped on the inside of the card although it doesn't show too clearly on the photo. The swirly paper comes from Funky Fairy Inspirations
