Tuesday, 15 May 2012


Morning guys,well its raining hard again here today,so gorgeous on Sunday and now back to rain rrrrrrrr.
I am off to the doctors,today to get a tetanus,injection I was busy making cards was a roll,and I stupidly sliced the top of my finger off,Lisa came rushing in as I shouted rather loudly,and she said on Mum the tip of your finger is laying on your table.
Oops,so its a bit hard to type as its all strapped up,must get some blades for my paper trimmer it will be much safer,so glad I had all my DT cards ready.

Right well first its,Distressing time over at Creative Craft Challenge boy we had over 400 entries,so thank you all so much for your support.
So here is my card for this weeks challenge,
I have used,a circle card this time,and papers are al from a CD then I have distressed the edges,with,spun sugar,then added some die cut leaves,made some flowers,then added some bakers twine, finished with a ribbon.
So if you would like to play along,the link to the Challenge is HERE.
Next its,Creatalicious,and this month we have a bingo board for you too play along with,I have used the lines,Flowers,ribbon,and 3 punches,to create my card

Image Sarah Kay love that stamp thanks to Mina,papers,are paper-mania,I think sorry lost the front cover.
Image coloured with pro markers,and pencils,flowers,from my stash,then I have used,swirls,and leaves,and finished with adhesive stones,and a freebie sentiment that came with a magazine.
So if you would like a game of Bingo,then,the link to our challenge is HERE

And finally,Anything,goes,challenge and the theme this week is black and one other colour so this is what I have done,for this challenge,

This time I have used another Sarah Kay image,again thanks to Mina. The image has been coloured with my prisma,and polychrome pencils,I have cut the shapes on my Cricut,then added some adhesive stones,ribbon,leaves,and flowers then highlighted with diamond sparkles glitter.
So there you have it,3 DT cards,sorry there is so many,if you would like too play along with this challenge the link,is HERE
Just before I go I would like to welcome Sue to my blog bless you Hun,for taking the time to follow me,and bless you all for all the wonderful comments,you continue to leave on my blog I really appreciate it so much.
Only a few days left until I pick up my little puppy oh cant wait,
There is also a new challenge over at LEJ desings,too and the theme is layers,so if you would like to play along,with that challenge too,the link is HERE
