Everyone's favourite challenge...

Happy Friday everyone .... what's that ... it's Sunday evening?

Oops - that'd be me late again!

I'm here with my Stampin' For the Weekend post - it should have gone live on Friday, but I'm really not sure where the last two days have gone.

Luckily we have a very easy challenge this fortnight - you might have heard of this one before - ANYTHING GOES. I'm sure you'll have something to enter

Our sponsor for this challenge is Marker Pop

Here's my card. I made it for someone who was leaving at work:

Oh what's this? Another Tiddly Ink image- I think I have problems - ha ha.  I love the paper on this card - it's from a Crate Paper Pack - Fourteen.    The flowers are fabric cut with the Tattered Florals die.  The range are selling little packs of fabric, it's quite thin and cheap but perfect for cards.  I used a small amount of antique linen distress ink just to tone down the white fabric a bit.

Anyway - that's it from me for now - don't forget to enter our challenge!

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

Digi Choosday - All about the girl
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Mothers Day / Special Girl
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Digi Galore Challenges - Anything Goes
Natalie and Amy - Flowers

Thanks for looking!

Aloha Friday Challenge - Monochrome


I'm here (late again!) with my post for Kitty Bee Designs. We're half way through our challenge, and the theme is Monochrome.

Our challenge is Sponsored by Lacy Sunshine, you should see what my teamies have done with their images! I choose to use a super cute Kitty Bee image  - this one is called Espresso Bun!

I'd like to be able to tell you where the papers are from - I think they are First Edition - Spring Drop - but I can't be sure.  What I can be sure of is my new memory box die - it's lovely (although it was a bit of a cow to cut properly!)

Anyway - I hope you can join our challenge, you can link up your monochrome project here.

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

Inky Chicks - Monochromatic
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
The Paper Nest Dolls - Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Craft Boots Challenges - Green

Thanks for looking!

Stampin' For the Weekend - Sparkle and Shine


Hope you've all got something lovely planned for the weekend.  I have a super day planned -  today we are visiting Cadbury world.  Mmmm I can't wait, unfortunately my children think we are actually visiting Willy Wonka's chocolate factory and my little boy (he's nearly 4) is terrified of falling the chocolate river and being sucked up the pipe, like Augustus Gloop!

I'm here with my design team post for Stampin' For the Weekend.  I'm running about a day late - sorry teamies.  Our theme is Sparkle and Shine and our fabulous sponsor is Bunny Zoe's- you should check her store out - there's even a sale this weekend with 20% off stamps.

Here's my card - it's a bit usual for me - I don't tend to use bright colours or images with lots of hair - so you'll have to let me know what you think.

Although it looks like there isn't a lot of sparkle - but her wings are covered in Stickles.

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

Fan-tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes
Passion for Promarkers - Make it Digital
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Digitally Sweet - Anything Goes
Jelly Park - Things with Wings
Sister Act - Anything Goes
The Stamping Boutique - Use Glitter
Aud Sentiments - For a Girl

Thanks for looking - and don't forget to play along with our challenge!
