Tiddly Inks Card

Well I was hoping to apply for the DT call at Tiddly Inks but by the time I'd finished the card it was too late. I thought I'd show it here anyway and I have a nice card (in my opinion) to add to my general card box, maybe next time ;-)


Susie and Vikki's Christmas Club

I was so thrilled to have won on the challenge last week I had a smile plastered on my face permanantly, I got some fabby die cut squares from the lovely Susie, which i used some of already and I was asked to make a card for the next theme which is Reindeer. This is what I have made for the challenge, hope you like it and good luck everyone.

Birthday Cakes

As you may know we had to have two birthday cakes this year thanks to DD, so I cut the good bits off the sunken one and created what has been dubbed a Scooby Doo cake with layers of cake and whipped cream, the other is before and after it was iced.


Husband's Birthday Cards

As you know it was DH birthday yesterday so I thought I would show you the cards we made for him.
The Whiff of Joy card was from my Mum and Dad, he is called Good Luck Charlie but I thought he he fit for birthdays too.
The Dustin Pike Dragon Knight is a digi stamp, coloured by DD who was tickled we could add the text before we printed him out. Her colouring is good but she won't take the time to out the card together properly but she is only 8.
The tri fold card is from me, to be honest I was finishing up a kit from qvc and I know how much he like blue and yellow so it was a good match.
He seemed to like all his cards I hope you do to.

My Bah Humbug Challenge Entry

The theme this week was to use Peel offs I was going through my out or ask on the forum if anyone wanted them, so this prompted me to go through them and have a proper look so I found a few that I will use for my card and I think I will still get rid of the rest as I now remember why I stopped using them!!!

What a busy day!

Well its been a busy day today, I was up early and had all my ironing done before
8 o'clock, managed to do a little bit of crafting before DD got up. Had breakfast and did the usual house jobs, as it's DH birthday tomorrow I made his cake, when I came back from my shower the middle had sunk, a lot and there was fresh cocoa powder on the cake. How did this get there, not me said DD with a very guilty look on her face. She had decided to press the cake in the middle while it was still quite warm so it sank, needless to say I was not a happy Mummy, but hey it was done and I don't think she'll do it again. We went into town with my Mum and spent ages looking round the shops then it was time for DD last ice skating lesson for this block. She passed her assessment with flying colours and was so pleased with herself she was nearly floating on the ice!!! She has asked to do Level 2 so it has been booked and starts fairly soon. Well that's it for today going to see if I can finish one of the projects I've started ready to do some more tomorrow.

Whiff of Joy Challenge 72

This card is being entered into the Whiff of Joy Challenge, this week you had to follow a sketch, you can use any theme but it must be a Whiff of Joy image which is fair enough. They are such lovely images it's a joy to use them anyway.This little lady is Dancing Willow, I've coloured her with my promarkers and used papers from my stash, the little flowers were white to start with but it didn't look right so out came the promarkers again.
