Charisma Cardz

Are the weeks just flying by or is it just me- its time for another Charisma Cardz challenge and this weeks it is to use a candle or candles on your card- that could be a real candle or an image
Remember to stop by the rest of the DT and check out their amazing cards for inspiration

This is a download I bought ages and ages ago and I really can't remember where from.. so if you can identify it I would be delighted so I can credit the designer
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing what you make

Moving Along With The Times

This is the sketch at Moving Along With The Times this week and this is my take on the sketch- there is also a Mother theme to this sketch

These are new embossing folders and I have no idea the name of them so if you know can you tell .... pretty please
Sugar Nellie image coloured with pro markers
Hope you are having a good weekend
I was working yesterday so my weekend was cut short! but look at it in the sense the extra money will give me extra pennies to spend at the SECC craft show
Was going to do some houseworkd but decided changing the bed was enough for the day!! so might get a bit of crafting done now

Carol's Sketch

This is Carols sketch for this fortnight's challenge

I used the Victoria embossing folder and coloured the Sugar Nellie image with pro markers and doodled some stitching round the edges

Friday Sketchers

This is the sketch at Friday Sketchers this week and this is my take on the sketch

The papers are from that place known as haven't got a clue- hidden at the back of my stash and the borders are from the same place..... at least I know the image is from Tinker & Co!! and the sentiment was fom stickers from the pound shop and it does say Happy Easter but cause its shiny there is too much of a glare off it to read
Don't know why but I am in Easter mode today so off to make another couple of Easter cards
hope you have a lovely Sunday

Cute Card Thursday

This is my card for the Cute Card thursday Spots and Dots challenge this week
Dotty paper from Recollections Autumn collection papers and Sarah Kay image coloured with pro markers
Have just spent two and half hours for a 5 minute hospital appointment... grrrr... oh we are running late says the nurse someone sent out 9 appointments all for the same time - couldn't they have phoned or something once they realised- precious crafty time was ruined sitting in a hot stuffy hospital waiting room for a 5 min appointment- see you in 4 months the consultant said- think i will arrive an hour and a half late for that and see how they like it and just say oooh sorry bout that when I eventually turn up- little rant now over off to make dinner now and hope that I didn't leave mojo at the hospital as I have a few cards I need to get done before Coronation Street tonight

The challenge over at Allsorts this weeks Distressing with Buttons and Bows
Now I don't know what my problem with these challenges seems to be- and I know I am not alone... Kath!... but I wrote the challenge down to avoid confusion and got on with making my distressed card
Went to take its photo and noticed the other part of the challenge, the buttons and bows and would you believe there was not a button or bow to be seen on my card
So off came the jewels on the flowers and buttons were added in place and a tiny bow added to the sentiment
Hurray !!!at last all aspects of the challenge now complete- so I think I am now safe to post this card
The papers are from a Recollections Autumn pad and I have had the die cut bear for ages but just didn't want to use him but it is now time for him to come out of the museum and be seen publically
Hope you are having a lovely weekend
