Friday Sketchers 112/Papertake Weekly


Well bloggers it's still warm in Essex and I am still eagerly awaiting some rain, which seems to keep passing us by. I now can't even remember when it rained for more than five minutes it seems like months ago.The grass is no longer green but a nice shade of brown. The heat combined with my FMS/CFS which is particularly bad at the moment means I seem to have lost my mojo, hence my lack of postings over the last week.
Mr blogger has also been playing up and my blog started having strange messages appear all over it so I have had to quickly change the template to get rid of them. It still needs some tweaking when I get around to it though.
However I was determined to do something today and this is what I came up with I hope you like it. I've followed the sketch at this weeks Friday Sketchers challenge 112. The challenge at Papertake weekly is "Cutie Patootie" so anything cute. Well I think this little bunny from Lili of the Valley is cute what about you?

In The Garden


At last the temperature has cooled down here in Essex although I am still waiting for the rain so I don't have to water the garden.All we've had so far today is rain for about five minutes if that, the grass is looking decidedly brown.
This weeks challenge at Papertake weekly is "In the garden." This was a card I was commissioned to make a few weeks ago for someone's Mum who loves gardening so it is just perfect for this challenge.

Allsorts challenge 60/Dutch Dare



This card is for two Allsorts Challenge 60 which is July Love. Your card must have a heart on it.
The second challenge is at Double Dutch which is to make a card or creation based on a movie title. So my inspiration for this card is from the film Love Story.
Heart stamps are once again from Stampin'up

I do like to be beside the seaside


I know it's been nearly two weeks since my last post but it has just been so hot it has zapped all my energy, plus I have been having major problems with pain in my legs. The temperature on our patio which is in full sun yesterday reached a staggering 43 Celsius or about 109 Fahrenhei, far too hot.
I did manage to get to a friends this week for some crafting as she was just around the corner from me. I have also just spent today in the company of friends at another workshop which was also great fun.I was hoping to get a good picture before the light went but I think I was just a little too late in the day.The picture doesn't really show that I chalked in blue sky. I also raided hubby's decorating box for some sandpaper across the middle. Image is from Lili of the Valley
This card is for the following challanges
Friday Sketchers 110 - the sketch
Creative Card Crew - To Die for challenge
Little Red Wagon - Use your nestabilities
