Hi all,
Hope you are enjoying what's left of half term and the weekend. Had half term off :0)
but back to work tomorrow for me! :0(
Still, soon be Christmas! Eeeeeek....what am I saying!
And on that note......... I have given myself a kick up the .... and got on with a few cards.
Lots of lovely sketches & challenges about, but being slow coach me, I have missed most of the dead lines! Still, I enjoy the inspiration.

Just got this one done in time for a challenge. The
Their challenge this week is "Aperture." After some thought I decided to have a go at my first shaker card 1. cos it needs an aperture, & 2. cos I wanted to make a 'snowy' kind a card.
After a lot of changes to my original plan, a very sticky pair of scissors and snow & glitter all over the place! I finally managed to come up with this....

This card was inspired by sketch #26 over at the Papertake challenge......loved the simplicity.

My next card used a sketch again, this time from the Just Magnolia challenge........only trouble is I was so focused on the layout I forgot all about a magnolia element.....oooops!

My final card was made for my daughter's friend, the brief was she likes green & yellow , so here's what I came up with....

Thanks for visiting...

Sketch Saturday challenge....

Decided as I have so many birthday cards to make at the moment I needed help & inspiration to keep me going. Soooooo I am looking to all those lovely challenges. Now I am rather partial to sketch challenges and really like this one over at so this was my inspiration for this card for a friend.......shhhhhhh hoping she doesn't see it on here before the postie pops it through her door!

Used an image a lovely friend send me ages ago....thank you Samantha.....te hee he ...I told you it was a long time ago, I bet you don't even remember! And I still have the gorgeous wallet you sent me too.
Water coloured the image and highlighted the roses with glossy accents.
Hope the recipient likes it!

Its been a while.......

....but I have found the tine to join in with a few challenges this week :0)

And oh boy are these so many to choose from!

Two of my favourites are 'cos I just LOVE all the gorgeous images, and , especially love their sketch challenges and this weeks sketch is no exception......just had to do it!
My card fits both challenges as I have used the fab sketch from the Papertake Challenge and included buttons which is for the Housemouse Challenge. Hope you like my card.

I have managed to make a few other cards for birthdays this month but in my haste to post I forgot to take pics :0( just managed one other pic of this card sent to a dear fluffy friend a while ago to thank her for some totally adorable images she sent me. Bless her!

Well that's it from me for now, thanks for popping by!
Have a great weekend
