Fore you

Hope you are all having a good week. The weather has turned very cold here in Essex but it didn't stop me from having a lovely afternoon with friends today.
This a very quick post as I have a raging headache the result of a funny turn today where the room started spinning and I nearly passed out,so I am off to bed for an early night. I just  wanted to sneek in this card to finish the week off.
This is for the following challenge:

Fairy Dust

My friend recently lent me her Clarity Stamp Videos, which reminded me I hadn't done any brayering for simply ages. So inspired by the videos I decided to make this card using one of my new crafty bargains. The fairy stamp is from Personal Impressions- Spell Casting and which I found brand new in a charity shop for 50p, that's what I call a bargain. I also brought a few other stamps as well so watch this space.
This card is for the following challenges.
It's not a great day for photographing as it's raining so the stickles I used for fairy dust are not showing up too well.

Well I've been trying all week to finish this card but just haven't found the time or energy until today. I've had a complete lack of energy and mojo this week, as my mum would have said it's trickled out my left leg, my mum used to come out with some strange sayings.My friend Annie was kind enough to give me some crafting goodies last week which  included some of these butterflys.It also rekindled my mojo so it was just a case of finding the energy.
Just by the skin of my teeth I am in time to enter it for this weeks challenge at Sketch Saturday no 190.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year bloggers. I hope you all had a great Christmas and got all the crafting goodies on your wish list.
Can you believe we are half way through January already where has the time gone.Time to return to some serious crafting now all the festivities are over.
The challenge  at Penny Black this week is - 184 "anything goes" a nice easy one to start the year off. Looking through my stock I realised my male cards were getting a little low so decided to go along with that theme as well. Now I don't usually use grey it's not one of my favourite colours maybe it has something to do with the fact that many moons ago my school uniform was grey and green but on this occasion I felt it added to the masculine feel of this card.
Stamps are of course from Penny Black - Toadily. Sentiment is from Imagine That.
