Charisma Cardz/Creative Card






This card is for two challenges Charisma Cards whose challenge is anything but Christmas and Creative Card Crew who have set the challenge anything goes.
My great niece Niamh turned one at the beginning of December and so this is a card I made for her. My friend Gill showed me a Christmas card she had made like this and I thought it would make a great little card for Niamh.So thanks Gill for the inspiration. I used my Ellie the Elephant stamps from Stamposaurus and covered with my grey fun flock.

New Beginnings



Well I don't know about you but here in Essex we had lots of that white stuff fall last night. The garden looks very pretty and two foxes were having great fun chasing snowflakes and rolling in the snow last night. As for me I am staying well tucked up indoors until it's gone.
The theme at Daring Cardmakers this week is New Beginnings.This is a card I was commissioned to make a couple of months ago but have never got around to putting on my blog until now. They wanted me to use the colours pale green and pink so this fits the bill although the photo does not do it justice I'm afraid. I had to take it a night and as we all know cards don't photograph well by artificial light.
I hope you all have an enjoyable and safe Christmas.

Secret Crafter Challenge 62


Well I hope you've all had a great weekend and have finished all your Christmas cards and shopping. Hubby has finally got around to painting the kitchen ceiling this week,which leaves the walls and woodwork to do. Who knows he may even get it finished in time for Christmas, not that I will be doing any cooking this year.
Just a quick card as I've had a terrible migraine again today. This card is for The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which this week is snow. This card is for someone who is as mad about horses as I am about parrots.I've purposely made the card very simple to show off the horse.

Here comes Summer



Ok well maybe not just yet. However the theme over at Charisma Cards this week is "I'm Dreaming of Summertime" and we all need cheering up what with all the rain we've been having just lately. I've combined this with the challenge sketch at Sketch Saturday challenge 80 this week.
I must apologise for the poor quality photo but I won't get a chance to take one in daylight tomorrow as hubby is taking the camera and going on a boys day out.

Friday Sketchers 81/Daring Cardmakers


Another week which has just flown by. I've written and posted all my Christmas cards this week,haven't I been good.I've still a few to write for friends that I will see before Christmas.
The Kitchen is all prepared and ready for painting we just need to find the time to actually go and get the paint.
I've amazed myself today and actually made a card which fits two challenges set today which, must be a first for me. I've used the sketch from Friday Sketchers and the theme at Daring Cardmakers this week is Sepia.So that's just brown/white or brown/cream depending on your card base colour.
I'm really looking forward to tomorrow we are off to a friends 50th birthday party and we haven't seen them for a while. I just hope I feel ok tomorrow.I think I shall have to conserves my energy and do nothing all day apart from maybe some crafting.
