Daisy Daisy

What happened when I plonked myself down armed with my copics and some images already for Holby City tonight. You guessed it they took it off and put the football on, so I'm not happy. I am truly fed up of all this football and tennis it's about time they had one sports channel and left everything else alone.
So I downed the copics and returned to crafting which is why you are seeing two cards in one day from me.
This card is for six challenges which is also rather an amazing achievement for me.

Allsorts - challenge 58 embossing
The Crazy Challenge - Make it in an hour
Practical Scrappers - flowers
Corrosive Challenge Flowers
Caardvarks - wet or dry embossing
Craft Ann challenge 17 embossing


Isn't the weather lovely this week, although myself I find it a little too hot. Even so I've managed to find enough energy to get a bit of crafting done. I've even managed to get a card done on the day the challenge was set rather than sneaking it at the very last minute. I've also used one of my favourite set of stamps at the moment which is Hearts from Stampin'up.
This card if for several challenges
Papertake Weekly challenge - Stitching be it real,faux,doodling.
Sew Many Challenges - Anything goes.
Fresh Brewed - anything goes.

Papertake Weekly 43

Phew!! isn't it hot today. Had a great time with friends last night. Today I am just chilling out it's far too hot to do anything outside.
This card is for papertake weekly challenge 43 which is a great sketch to follow. Not sure why the flowers look so dark in the picture they actually match the papers fairly well.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Colour Create Challenge 47

Oh what a naughty blogger I have been no postings in over a week.All I can say in my defence is I've been having fun fun and more fun. I've lunched with the ladies. Been to a fabulous workshop at Imagine That where we covered a book using Grunge paper and Tim Holtz fab distressing inks, stickles and glaze. Then my friend Gill took me and another friend Val out on a little tour of not one but three crafts shops, how lucky can a girl be to have such a fab week.
This is a very quick and simple card as I don't have much time today. The challenge over at Colour Create this week is Mad as a Hatter. We had to take inspiration form a picture of Johnny Depp playing the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland.An optional extra is to use an element from the picture i.e. satin, bow, gems.Their is a tiny gem on her waist,
Well that it for now folks. we are having some friends to dinner tonight and I have hubby on commis chef duty as my feet are killing me after such a hectic week and I can barely stand let alone cook dinner on one of the hottest days of the year so far.

Mine's a pint

Mine's a pint,well not literally I would prefer a glass of wine myself.Red or white not fussy as long as it's wine. This card is one I was busily making last week for someone who I am pleased to say was delighted with it. This card is for two challenges firstly over at Incy Wincy Designs where the theme this week is "One for the guys". The second challenges is at Cards for Men and the theme is Fathers Day.
Not sure of the make of stamp as it's one I borrowed from a friend. Coloured with copics and liquid appliqué used for the froth

Sketch Saturday 107

Finally I've got around to finding time to make a card for another challenge which is the challenge over at Sketch Saturday this week.. I have been a busy bee this last week making cards for various people once again and visiting friends. I've also got back into looking at my family history, as well as helping someone else to do their family tree. Time just seems to slip by when delving into family history.
Hubby and I had a lovely time at his aunt and uncles on Saturday for our annual family get together of aunts,uncles,cousins and 2nd cousins.It was a very long journey Essex to Dorset and back in a day.I will probably take a week or so to recover even though we went by train.

Die Cut Dreams challenge 50

The challenge at Die Cut Dreams this week is to make a celebration card and it must have a number on. I just happened to have just finished a card that I was asked to make this week for a lady who is 30 so this card fits nicely into this challenge.
