Time to craft!

I have been very lucky of the last few days and have had time in a abundance for card making the last few days.
Mike has had some time off mainly to watch the Tour of Britain as we were lucky enough for it to be in our area. Anyway it also meant that he was home to help with the children's schooling giving me a little more time to make cards.
I have made a few but wish to share a couple for now and enter them into a couple of challenges.
The first is for the One Stop Craft Challenge the theme being Beary Nice.

The image and papers are both from Cuddlybuddly.
I think the children will be giving this one to their Nanny for her birthday which will be upon as before long.

I never have the right cards about when my friends teenage daughters birthday come up so this one will be one to keep back for such an occasions.

I'm going to enter this one into the The secrect crafters Saturday Challenge this weeks theme is one for the girls.
The Image is from Pollycrafts Cherry Kisses range and the papers are from, yes you've guessed it Cuddlybuddly.
OK that's it for now I'm off to finish watching my favourite film Pride & Prejudice.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my little blog.

Late again!

I'm not very good at getting my cards made in time for the challenges.

My Orange and Chocolate below was to late by about five hours. Typical me always leaving things to the last minute but hopefully I'm just in time for this weeks Dare You To Digi Stamp challenge. I made this card this morning but had run out of glue so had to pop out to our local craft shop to pick up some more.

Anyway this is the sketch you had to follow.

and this is my card.
The image is from Pollycraft's Ginger collection and the papers are from Cuddlybuddly
Patchwork collection.
The flowers are from my stash.

OK well I'm off to link my post to the challenge, fingers crossed I'm not to late.

How silly am I, I've just been across to enter the challenge and released it runs for two weeks.
Me early, never. Well I guess I am this time.

Die Cut Dreams Challenge

Two for tea!

Ok so after missing out on last weeks Die Cut Dreams challenge I wanted to get my card in nice and early this week. I knew as soon as I found out what the challenge was I had the perfect image for it.

I love this Freddies Friends Decoupage from Polka Doodles and It's half price at the moment such a great bargin. The papers are from Cuddly Buddly downloads.

Chocolate and Orange

Just a quick one, I want to get this card into the challenge before it was to late.


Didn't think I would like this colour combo but once I had found the image I was going to use it all come together.

The Image is from Holly and Madison and I used my Pro markers to colour her in all the rest is from my stash.

I really like this card and the colours look great.

I Won

Wow I can't believe my luck.

I hadn't be able to get on the Internet much over the last couple of days until last night. So can you believe my surprise when I was catching up on some blogs and there in big bold type was my name Susie's son had pulled my name out of a hat and I had won this fantastic Blog Candy.
After running around the house screaming with excitement, so close to waking the little guys I left a comment for Susie and before I could email her she had already emailed me.
Thank you so much Susie I'll be waiting for Mr Posty with baited breath.
