2 Sketches 4 You

This my take on the great sketch this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You.
Again a very simple card from me- I am off this week and I honestly don't know where the time has gone to- not got half of what I planned done but I did start my Christmas shopping so that's a bonus
The weather here is wild and I am off out to the dog training but not looking forward to stepping out of the door- I will be soaked before I even get to the car!
Have a lovely evening

Cute Card Thursday

The challenge over at Cute Card Thursday this week is Something for a Teenager and this is my quick take on the challenge.
Trying to get a few more challenges done this week than I have been doing of late so some of them will probably be quick makes like this one.

Charisma Cardz

The challenge this week at Charisma Cardz is a fabby sketch and this is my take on the sketch
The stamp I just adore and its by Paper Artsy and that's the last I have of that lush ribbon- wish I could remember where I got it from!
Looking forward to seeing your take on the sketch and I hope you can join in the fun this week

Forever Friends and Moving Along With The Times

The Forever Friends challenge this week is Glitter and the MAWTT is a sketch and open theme so this week I combined the two. I don't know where the time is flying by to but there seems to be the next weeks challenge up by the time I get round to considering the previous week!
So I made a point of making time tonight to do this card for these challenges.
It wasn't till I had put the image on that I realised it had a sentiment so I had to leave the text area off from the sketch and I couldn't cross my string as it hid the sentiment!

Woohoo great news there is a new Funky Hand download available and its Christmas digi stamps, check it out

There are snowflakes galore and a lovely tree, winter woolies, reindeer head and Christmas baubles ready for download, resize if you want and colour or print onto papers and make lots of wonderful Christmas cards with.

These are a couple of my samples but either check the wesite or the other DT's blogs for their wonderful examples.


Daisy & Dandelion Christmas Project

This is my Daisy and Dandelion Christmas Project- for full instructions how to make see the Daisy and Dandelion blog

Daisy and Dandelion

I did the planner so it can used year after year and will be a good reminder each year what you bought the previous one.... so it will avoid buying the same present two years running for the same person... like anyone would do that! says me blushing!!!!

Hope you like it and remeber to check out the wonderful Christimas projects from the rest of the DT

18th Birthday Card

was asked to make an 18th birthday card for someone at work and it had to be girly and pink
EEK.. there is only a threee week window in the year that I do pink and girly so I deliberated long and hard and long and long about this one so I am just hoping it's ok and pink and girly enough
Hope your Sunday is going is well- my day is just running away with me- was at agility this morning and was soo chuffed that Misty went on the see saw all on her own- yeeha, major breakthrough, then by the time I got home and had to take Bud a walk, Misty tagged along too! and here we are quarter to three in the afternoon- better get the finger out and get this wedding card done

Penny Black Challenge

The challenge over at Penny Black this week is song titles
so I went about this challenge a bit back to front- instead of picking the song title and then making a card I coloured my PB mouse first then thought what could he hold or look at ... I know .....a star
The next dilema was then to find a suitable song with a star- and I kept thinking Wish Upon a Star and true enough when you look it up it is a song from a Disney Movie by Samantha Mumba
so that's how my card came about.
Am actually supposed to be making a Wedding Card but am waiting for the inspiration to hit me so made this to pass the time until the idea comes to me
Have a great weekend and pleeeaaassseeeea if any of you are.... STOP voting for John and Edward , they just have to get voted out of X Factor this week

Just Magnolia

The theme this week at Just Magnolia is Monochrome, so I just had to go for shades of brown.
The papers are by Jenn Wilson.
Need to go and make a list , have so much to do I am confusing myself about it so think i will make a cuppa and sit down and write a list then I can tick off what I have done!
Enjoy the rest of your day

Penny Black Challenge

The challenge over at Penny Black this week is White on White- everything has to be white except your image- you're allowed to use colour for that

I embossed my card using the snowflake and swiss dots folders and used my PB Christmas dog stamp and added a touch of lilac to his scarf and mounted it on a scalloped circle

Added some lace and a sentiment

The hardest part was actually trying to get a decent photo- its miserable here with rain and very dull and I kept taking either very dark photos of it or ones with a glare- so this is the best of a bad bunch
