Aloha Friday - Water - Mid Challenge Reminder!


I'm here with my mid challenge reminder for the Kitty Bee Designs "Aloha Friday  Challenge".  The theme is water and after I've done my post I'm off for a soak in the bath.  I hate to admit it but I've been doing some *exercise* ugh and my muscles are aching. So I thought a nice long soak in the bath with a book would be just the thing.

This time I've made an invitation.  If I was really clever I could have done the whole thing on the computer, coloured it digitally and then printed out onto little cards but as I don't actually know how to do anything apart from print on normal A4 I had to do a bit more faffing around.

Here it is:

It's only a little 4 x 4 card.  These cute little Jellyfish look really lovely in real life - I've put some lovely stickles glitter on them.

So why not enter our challenge with your watery creations.  You'll just need to make sure you enter on the original challenge post here.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Make it Sparkle
Bunny Zoe - Something Blue
The Pink Elephant - Digital Images or Papers
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Wags 'n' Whiskers - Sparkle

Thanks for looking!

Tuesday Throwdown - Things with Wings!


I'm here today with my Tuesday Throwdown card.

But first I'd like to complain about the weather - it's gone so cold.  Tonight I've put my big fleecy dressing gown over my clothes - as the rule in our house is no central heating until October!    I also had to have a a cup of tea (and a Jammie dodger to dunk in it!) to help me feel more cosy.

This week at Tuesday Throwdown our theme is Things with Wings. We are sponsored by MyGrafico who have given us some lovely images to work with.

Here's my card:

I've made a spinner card with my little fairy, hopefully you can see from the pictures that she is suspended in the middle, and you turn her round a couple of times before closing the card, then when someone opens it - it spins round and round.

This was fairly easy to make, and I think it's really cute!   Although I've bodged the mechanics a bit, you can't see the red and white Washi tape holding it altogether inside from this picture.  I'll have to fix that in a bit as I've promised the card to one of my friend at work for her mum.

I do hope you can join us for our challenge this week - it's always nice to see what everyone creates!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

ABC Challenge - V for Very Cute

Stampin' For the Weekend - Back to School


I've been looking forward to this September for a while as my little boy starts school and freedom is is in sight! But I've been looking at him this week thinking he is far too small to go anywhere.  As much as it will be nice to have some time to get the house sorted (and catch up with blogging!), I'm going to miss our little outings together. Especially like the one this morning where we took the frog, that somehow got in my bedroom overnight, and set it free in the park!

The theme for our new challenge at Stampin' For the Weekend is back to school!  And we are fortunate enough to be sponsored by Saturated Canary again!

Once again we've been able to choose beautiful images to work with and I've used Princess Reading Beauty.

 I've also used my beautiful papers from Crate Paper again!

I hope you can join us for our challenge!  I can't wait to see what you all create!
