The challenge this week at Pollycrafts is to make your own flowers
For this I used Moodles and chopped his legs off so he could hold the sentiment and he must be in touch with his feminine side as he is now wearing pink
The flower I punched out and layered up and added a bit of card candy in the middle
Going for a bath now and get an early night- can't keep my eyes open

Made this card last night and would you believe it it fits nicely into the STITCHING theme for Allsorts this week.
I did some faux stitiching round the edges on this one
The papers are from the Daisy and Dandelion Picnic Patch and the sticker is Bubbles
A bit dull and over cast here today- now I was going to cut my grass today but I don't know, it might rain at any moment oh what's a gal to do.... crafting- grass, crafting-grass mmm let me think- of course there is no contest but maybe even if I did the back today and left the front for another day and that would still leave time for some crafting
Let you know later what I decided!

The Pollcrafts challenge this week is a colour combo of PINK and BROWN with either GREEN or YELLOW
So I went for the green option to go with the pink and brown.The papers are by K & Co and the image is pollycrafts.
Another lovely sunny day here but did read in the paper that more snow was on the way at least here in Scotland you are always guaranteed all the seasons in one day!
Looking forward to a nice relaxing day at Craft Class tomorrow after working overtime all week
Have a lovely eveningAllisonX

this is my card for the 2 Sketches 4 You challenge this week, based on Kazan's sketch below
These K&Co papers are some of my favourites and I am developing an unhealthy obsession with that leaf die and my new butterfly punch- you will be sick fed up with them before I've finished!
Just another quick post tonight as off to bed as was working late

The challenge this week at Cute Card thursday is Mono Mania and I went for purple
I based this card on Vee's sketch over at Vee's Sketch pad where you find lots of inspirational sketches- the sketch also had to have some stitching
Don't know if you can see it on the photo but the paper- which I found amongst my stash is a lovely velvety texture
Bye for now

The challenge at Sophisticats this week is Raining Cats and Dogs- now it can either be something involving rain, cats or dogs or all of the aformentioned so guess what I went for-DOGS
Now I know in the photo the d is missing off the word friend but when I noticed it on the photo here I have adjusted it so you can now see it
Mummy dearest kindly gave me some money for my Easter- whoopdedoo
So I bought the Martha Stewart flutterby punch and the scalloped circle nestie that I have lusted over for ages so i just had to play with them and made a simple card to try them out- weeheee I love them- so watch out you will be fed up looking at them before long!
Having a wonderful week off work- dog walking and crafting.... ah heaven
The plan at the moment for tomorrow is a Jammy Day(PJ's on all day)... now this could be hard having to take the dogs out but I have decided to look out baggy trousers and a big jumper and put them over my pj's and off we go for a walk so I won;t have to get really dressed at all
Thanks to everyone who took part in my challenge last week- wonderful entries yet again.
this weeks challenge is THANK YOU and the papers I used for my card are K&Co and the thank you stamp is by Stampin Up.
Do hope you can join in this week again
Have a lovely Thursday

The Forever Friends Challenge is Spring and for that I went with a lovely blue shade- the papers are from The funky One CD from Funky Hand and added a nice flower for Spring
They are also having a DT call and who wouldn;t want to be on the DT and play with these lovelies every week- so pick me please....
The second card is one I made for my friend who had a baby at the weekend- a boy... you might have guessed
Have to rush now as have a hair appointment
Little update- I am gutted Docrafts have pulled the Daisy and Dandelion blog and the facebook page- no reason given, but as they own the copyright then I suppose they can- blah... more like Don't crafts!!!

This is the sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 you this week and this is my take on the sketch
used Kraft card and some stickers from my stash
This is my card for the Penny Black challenge this week which is Checks- I used Daisy and Dandelion paper and finally after adoring this image for ever I got round to buying it
Ooh I'm on a roll, having loads of fun getting lots of crafting done
As you can see Misty is very comfortable, having a snooze in my craft room- excuse all the fluff but she does need a brush but am waiting until she is no longer damp to do that
The challenge this week at the Pink Elephant is Nature and as you can see this was my disaster as I took it a bit far, forgetting that less is more! I had an idea in my head but it went a bit wrong!!
So the next card is for The Pink Elephant then- and also Just Cute Bears whose theme this week is Green and Yellow
I do try not to combine lots of challenges but given my disaster above I decided to this time
Off now to get ahead with my Dt work and play about some more and have some coffee and mini eggs

Happy Easter Monday and I do hope you are getting a chance to do lots of crafting or doing something very exciting.
Over at pollycrafts this week the challenge is Anything Goes

Got a few orders to get done so off to finish them before going out for dinner with the Craft Class girlies

EEEK- its a photo of me!!!
This was my couple of days I spent with my friend in Edinburgh. I am standing at the meeting point for the ghost walk just across from the city chambers.
We had a wonderful time- stayed in a Premier lodge in the Grass market area just round the corner from the Burke N Hare Lap Dancing Club! And what was so funny was once we got booked in we hadn;t a clue which way to go and wandered about changing direction for ten minutes or so then had to ask someone which direction to the Castle who said- er see that big building up there, that would be the castle! oops
We headed off in that direction and spent hours wandering up and down, having coffee, lunch etc then we made our way to Mary King's Close which is more or less a whole street that was built over the top off to keep the plague from spreading. It was a fantastic tour and the guide was so funny.
Later that night after freshening up and having a refreshment(or two) we made our way back to this location for our Ghost and Ghoulies walk.
this was another wonderful tour and very interesting and informative about Edinburgh history(must say it was the nasty side though) then we made our way down to the Vaults which are reputed to be highly haunted This is a piccy I took in the Vaults(which was so dark I had to do a lot of photo adjusting to make it visible). Whole communities used to live underground in these Vaults and were home to the Hellfire Club and all their dasterdly doings.
We then at the end of the two hour tour had a drink and more story telling- it was FAB FAB FAB and again the tour guide was funny and very informative.
Next day we spent eating, drinking coffee, bit of shopping then off to the Castle- spent about 6 hours in the Castle then when we could no longer walk another step we decided to come home- even my blisters have blisters and I feel about ninety years old
Photo of Edinburgh Castle- had to chop about five hundred heads out of the photo- it was very busy and alothough the weather was very cold and overcast it managed not to rain until we were heading home
