I have used my new papers which I bought today ~ don't know how I managed to cut them as they are so lovely. Tilda has been coloured with Promakers.

Thanks for looking and as always any comments are most appreciated.

BasicGrey Challenge ~ #18 Digi Print

Good Evening

Here is my card for this week's BasicGrey Challenge.
It is a special challenge this week as you have to use one (or all even if you want to) of the illustrations which have been designed by Kim (see BasicGrey Challenge blog for details).

BP = BG Wassail
Flowers = From stash
Brad = Dovecraft
Ribbon = Dovecraft

I think these images are meant for Valentine's cards but I decided to use the girl image to make a birthday card for my cousin's daughter. She is going to be 14 and I thought this image would be great for a teenager. Hope she likes it.

I am now off to sort out the children's school uniform as I am at work tomorrow so trying to be organized for once!

2 in 1 Challenge Card ~ PBSC & SCSC

Good Afternoon

Just a quick visit as I am now leaving to collect the children from school but thought I would upload my challenge card first.

Here is my entry for the PBSC where the theme is dotty and SCSC where they want to see hearts. I am going to give this to Chris for Valentine's Day so hope he likes it! I have added 3D gloss to the rose. Not sure of the name of this Penny Black stamp as it is another image I received from a crafting buddy. Papers are magazine freebies.

As always comments are most appreciated.

Pink & Brown ~ PBSC #31


The PBSC this week is "Pink & Brown". I have no idea what this stamp is called as I received the image from a crafting buddy. I made this card for my mum as it is her birthday tomorrow.

As always any comments are most appreciated.

Blog Award

Good Morning

I had a lovely night out with the girls from work. It was sad to see Tracy go as I have worked with her for the last 8½ years and she is lovely. However, she started her new job this week and loves it so I am really pleased for her. The only problem was the weather as it was -3 and foggy and I had to drive the 20 mile journey home.

Now onto the blog award I received from Joanne. I love receiving blog awards but was especially pleased to receive this one as I haven't seen it before so "Thanks Joanne". I have to pass this award onto 7 people. It is always difficult to decide who to pass awards onto as I visit so many lovely blogs but I have had a good look at all my favourite blogs and I am giving this award to:

2 Challenge Cards


I have made 2 challenge cards this afternoon. My first card is for the Basic Grey Challenge which was a sketch challenge. This is the first time I have taken part in this challenge because until a few days ago I didn't have any Basic Grey products. However, after seeing so many lovely cards made with the Wassail papers I decided to buy some with my Christmas money. I am also entering this card for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which is to use something you got for Christmas or something you bought yourself over the holidays.

B/P = Basic Grey Wassail
Image = Summer Tilda with bow (I coloured her arms brown so it looks like she is wearing a jumper under her top).
Flowers = X-Cut punches with a gem added.
Organza ribbon = Wilkinsons

My second card covers 4 challenges.
1) I followed the sketch on Sketch Saturday.
2) The Penny Black Saturday Challenge is "embossing and I have embossed the corners with the Cuttlebug.
3) Anything Goes at Lili of the Valley.
4) Charisma Cardz is a new challenge and their first challenge is the theme pink.

Image = Penny Black (not sure of the name as I received this image from a blogging friend)
B/P = Tracy Porter
Sentiment = Magazine freebie
Flowers = From stash with a "legless brad" added (not sure what they are called lol!).

Sorry about the photos not being very good but I haven't got time to edit them as I am going out for a meal with the girls at work as one of our receptionists has got a new job.

Any comments are most appreciated.
