I made three cards today - please remember that it is April 2010 since I last made one - and here is one of them. If I feel brave enough I may show the others tomorrow.

My first port of call was Papertake Weekly who had this gorgeous sketch for this week's challenge.
The beautiful Hanglar image is coloured with Copics (how I missed them!) and papers are from the Cosmo Cricket TSV yonks ago and I still love these.
Although not doing much crafting, that doesn't mean I stopped buying stash - oh no!! My MS leaf punch made it's debut on this card ..... and there's more, hehe.
Thanks for stopping by - it's quite fun this blogging - hope to be around again very soon. xx

So, in time for Father's day and to make sure no Daddies out there get left out we want you to make a Father's day card using one of the Charmed downloads."
I must apologise again for not getting round to see everyone this week; I've been busy getting my house ready for sale (in between resting, of course!) and tomorrow I go back to work after 6 months away, although only part-time at first.
Hope to see you at Dottie's World (HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW PIXIES?), and thanks for visiting. xxx

This week's challenge at Colour Create is to use a beautiful combination of Blush Pink, Lilac and Mossy Green, all chosen by Tara's daughter, Georgia, and the Design Team have come up with some wonderful creations to provide inspiration. The extra option is to use die cuts.
For my card I used another of Maddy's stamps from Hanglar, Heidi Grace 'A Little Bird's Tale' papers and rub-ons, the die cut tree is October Afternoon, with punched flowers and leaves and a Papermania butterfly. We hope you are able to join us in the challenge this week.
I actually went out last night, another major milestone as I'm usually early to bed these days. Four of us went to see Angels and Demons and I can thoroughly recommend it! I love a conspiracy and with Tom Hanks you usually can't go wrong, especially for £3.25 on the half price Orange Wednesday deal.
The sun is shining again this morning and it's all looking good. Have a great day xxx

A huge thank you to Dawn for my lovely award which is proudly displayed in my sidebar.
I've not had the inclination or energy to make anything for a week, but A Spoon Full of Sugar got me going again this morning with their 'Butterflies' challenge. The image is one of Maddy's stamps which I coloured with Copics, papers are Doodlebug and K&Co Citronella, flowers Prima, butterflies Craft For Occasions and October Afternoon die-cut leaves. The sentiment is one of Maddy's Autumn Leaves stamps.
There's a touch of Glossy Accents on the puddle.

Papers are My Mind's Eye 'Bloom and Grow', flowers are Prima, Basic Grey brads and a Karen Foster sentiment. I used my Copics for colouring and paper pricked the stitches before drawing them in with a brown Zig pen.
Have a great day and thanks for looking xxx

I coloured the Hanglar image with Copics and used the new double sided K&Co Citronella mat pad papers which go perfectly with the K&Co Berry Sweet chipboard embellishments from last year.
Having another day enjoying this wonderful sunshine - hope you are having a good one too! xx

I used my gorgeous new Charmed Delectable stamp - Irresistible Annie, coloured her with Copics and used my nesties for the mats. Papers are from that magazine freebie again (aren't they great?).
I intend to enjoy the sunshine again today, while it lasts - hope you can do the same!
Have a great day and thanks for visiting xxx

Well my parcel arrived and it's every bit as gorgeous as I thought! The new K&Co ranges are sooooo beautiful and thanks to Karen for super speedy delivery, as always! I made this card for this week's ABC Challenge which is 'P for Pearls'. The sweet WOJ stamp is coloured with Copics with Stickles added to the flowers and wings. Papers and other elements are K&Co Que Sera Sera with pearl gems added to the flowers and butterfly and the sentiment is a rub-on.
Sorry Tara if I made you go spending again LOL!
Thanks for visiting xxx
Been enjoying the lovely weather and spending time in the garden, although today doesn't look too promising, so maybe I'll have a play with my new stash if it arrives this morning.
Have a good day! xxx

Have you checked out Dottie's World recently - it's had a makeover and is looking fabulous! Adele set the challenge this week and here it is:
I have tons of them but rarely use them ! Dig deep into your crafty stash and embellish away. It doesn't matter how you use them, as long as they are visible on your creation. If you haven't got any (!!!!) improvise! Only other "rule" is that a Charmed Download must be used.
The gorgeous Madison is coloured with Distress Inks (yes, I fancied a change!) and I really enjoyed using them again.
Papers are WR Memory Keepers, flowers Prima with Basic Grey buttons and leaf stamp.
There's still time to take part in all the 1st Birthday party games with a chance to win fabulous prizes and candy.
Have a great day! xxx

It's chemo for me today and tomorrow, but the good news is they're the last ones - phew! Hopefully get back to some normality soon - whatever that is!
Have a lovely day xxx

The stamp is the beautiful Annie from Charmed Delectable Stamps and coloured with Copics inspired by the colours of Neapolitan Ice Cream. Flowers are a mix of Prima and Papermania and the brads and die cut heart are Basic Grey.
Have a great day xxx
