Sassy Cheryl the baker... just because!

Hi everyone, it's Sunday night here, and after a exciting day of the DT announcement, I wanted to do a card... just because! No challenges or reasons, only because I love Cheryl's designs and they are so easy to colour! If you like this young lady, you can buy Sassy the Baker here.
Have a good night.

Have a great day... I'm off to watch a movie and colour in.

Stampin' for the Weekend

Well it's Sat morning, the sun is trying to get out from behind the fluffy white clouds.. I am figuring it's going to be a hot day later, so thought I would do one card before I do my chores!
I joined in at Stampin' for the Weekend, where they have a sketch to follow. I found some old SU paper in my stash... I am trying to be good and use up any old paper lying around before I cut up any more! Such a hoarder!!

Dew Drop Craftz - Last challenge

This is my last card for challenge site Dew Drop Craftz. I love this "older girl" image, I can see myself using it when the girls get into their teens for birthday cards.
I put a close-up image on here for the "night owls" Jana and Judy to see if I went out the lines!

Little Conductor

This image is called Little Conductor by Cheryl - Sassy Cheryl's.
I made this with no challenge in mind, only a big fright I had yesterday.... my pc died (yes I am gingerly typing this after giving a little cpr), so in my panic, one thought occurs to me,,, apart from all my digi images and family photos... "oh no.. I cant remember all those passwords and user names", so what better way to spend my day than create this book?

Just Breathe

Hi fellow stampers. Its a dreary day here in Hawera, so plenty of card making happening.
First for the day is this card which meets a few challenges...
Of course being a Michelle Perkett digi image, hi Michelle!!, I had to enter her challenge - blue and green.
Over at Doodle Palace they want lots of layers... (do you think 5 counts?)
I also followed the sketch over at Get Sketchy

So apart from card making, I will..mmm try to clean my craft room!!!
Have a great weekend.

Another woven easter basket!

Wow, talk about a stressful few days... my computer decided it didn't like PCP anymore and refused to let me do anything in it and didn't even look remotely like my beloved PCP screen. Stressful you ask??? because I have made so many great blogging friends on the groups I have joined that my hubby now watches TV in peace!!!

Anyway enough of my rambling.... what do you think of this most awesomest (is there such a word) image??? Of course its another Cheryl Alger image... and where can you buy it.. at Sassy Cheryls of course... BUT WAIT.... there's more... if you head over there now for the Super Bowl Snowed day and you will get 25% off everything in store!!! What are you waiting for..... geeezzz what a long

Woven easter basket

This afternoon, while it was to hot to go out in the sun I sat down and followed a tutorial over at Just Magnolia. Even though it took me a few hours to complete... and now I have Easter eggs looking at me begging to eat them... I think the end result is pretty stunning.
So this is my entry into Just Magnolia challenge.
Now... I have to spend the next two hours doing another one for my other daughter! Lucky I have a image from Sassy Cheryl's that fits the bill!

Magnolia down under - following their sketch
Saturday Challenge - must have hearts
Just magnolia - hearts and flowers.
So there you have it! back at work tomorrow. Face still breaking out in cold sores!!! It's gonna be a freak show!

Ahoy Matey!!!!

I received this stamp in a RAK a while ago from Jill, and have only now got around to using it... these Bildmalarna stamps have a real summer feel to me and I only seem to get them out and play with them in the summer time??
Anyway, I finally inked this beauty up. I used no flowers!!! or ribbon (OMG). the paper is Kaiser, and of course my beloved copics!

With Love

Today I have done a card for three challenges
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - "Things with wings" hence the pollycraft image with wings!
JC&BC - which I followed a sketch.
Doodle Palace - something new - I actually bought this digi some time ago, just have never gotten around to using it!
Having a quiet day today, kids back at school and I have a face full of cold sores!

TGF digi

Looking back at the last couple posts, you would be wise in thinking that I liked orange... , I didn't plan it, the paper just landed in my hand and I coloured around it!
This card is made following a sketch over at Anyone for Anya challenge.
