Bright card for dreary day!

Yep this would have to be the brightest card I have ever made! After having borrowed copics for the day, I have only managed this one card!! I did however in my defence, do another CT challenge.. which I cant show you until Friday... but I can tell you that I think it is pretty good and cant wait to share with you all.

Saturday Challenge

Well I am feeling a little worse for wear this morning, runny nose, sore throat, and the rest of the family aren't much better. Have to travel to NP with mum this morning... so as soon as we get back I think I might have to put my head down and keep warm. ..... on a plus side, weighed myself this morning....(been watching what Ive been eating to look nice in that bridesmaid dress)... 9kg lost... don't know where, but don't want it back!!
Onto the card.. Image from Pink Cat Studio - Sweet Pea. and challenge was New Beginnings, from Secret Crafter

Time to stamp!!!

Yep I haven't had time lately to stamp... but managed to squeak this one in this morning before our Hawera community class we had today. What a neat bunch of ladies. Have just got home and unpacked, and seemed to developed a sore throat along the way.. so will have a quiet night in and hopefully stamp before I feel to rotten! This card is a sketch from Kaboodle.

Finally a card!

Yes I am still here! I have had life get in the way and have been extremely busy from weddings, sickness (not the lovely Lou type!!) and preparing for a class at the community center in town. My DH decided to tell me when I got home from work that he was coughing up blood... why is it that when he has man flu he thinks hes dying but when hes coughing up blood hes fine??? Dah!!!! Anyway after alot of cursing, he went to the docs and he has bronchitis (sorry Trudi for bad spelling!!)

On to the card... two challenges, CTD and Spoon Full of Sugar. I had to use my lovely Miss Anya stamp. Off to tea at mums so see you later!

Crafty Tart Challenge 1

I couldnt help but post this today... was going to leave it for a few days, but really pleased on the outcome. The challenge was to use pages from a book... so of I went to a second hand book store, think she was horrified when I told her I was going to rip out pages, antique them then burn them!!! Most of the items used are from Crafty Tart site.

Friday Sketchers -

Decided to give Friday Sketchers a go.. and inked up my Miss Anya stamp to go with it.

A Kind Word

When this set came out, Sharlene said it reminded her of me and the type of images I colour in. Its very girly, the paper I have used is from the Bella Rose set, doesnt the pink checkers remind you of old fashioned table cloths?? Oh and this is going in the Secret Crafter challenge "brads or eyelets"

Saturday 9 May 2009
