Unfortunately I have little energy for crafting this week but here is some thing I made during my time off - experimenting with my Spectrum Noir pens and a dotty background.
I don't know about you but, when I get out my CDs to print paper for a card I am making, I always get a bit carried away and end up printing a lot of papers of for future cards that i 'plan' to do, but either never get round to, or I forget was the 'plan' was in the first place. Well for this card I was determined to use up some of those left over papers. I didn't follow my usual pattern of finding the paper and then colouring to match….i just went ahead and coloured this first. So I was delighted to find not only some matching paper, but also a perfectly matching ribbon too. :-)
So of course I would like to enter a few callings and here they are:

Well thanks for stopping by today and reading all my waffle.
Hope you all have a good weekend.

Three and a half hours later (and at 11.30pm I might add!) this was the result. A sweet little bestie,, decoupaged in to 3 layers and coloured in pro marker, with a lilly bit of bling for good measure.
Luckily the card was very well received. The only problem was that (and I didn't know this at the time) the guy was going to have to post it. It was an 8 x 8 card with some quite thick decoupage……he had to send it by special delivery….it must have cost him an arm and a leg! Oh well….at least he got the card for free :-).
Oh, and of course, the new card turned out nothing like the one I had made for my sister in the end…this is the one that I had made for her……
Thanks for stopping by today and, for those of you that have a long Bank Holiday weekend to look forward to…..have a good one!

My card for today is using a gorgeous digi from Tiddly Inks which I made quite large so I could use it on an 8 x8 card. The papers were the first choice that I made and the image was then coloured in to match them.
Meanwhile, here are some challenges that I would like to enter:

As you will see from my card, I wanted to keep the focus on this simple little character - I just felt like he might get lost amongst patterned papers etc so I have gone for a very CAS card in icy colours to match his environment.
To top it off I have used one of the tag stamps, also from LOTV, which is super useful for all seasons, and mounted it with a little pearly sequin which I happened to find lurking in my stash.
So I have have gone with a cute Christmas theme for this card, but of course you can use any sort of cuteness you like on our challenge, and I am hoping that this theme will be a popular one so that I can enjoy a bit of 'oooh ' and 'aaaahhhh' time looking at all your creations.
Meanwhile there are a few other challenges that I would like to enter and here they are:
Look forward to seeing you at our challenge blog.

This time my card was made using a lovely digi stamp from Bugaboo, which I printed 3 times and decoupaged for a bit of depth. I have also dragged out my nests and a gorgeous embossing folder from Crafters Companion and I have added a sprinkling of glitter as it is a special occasion.
Finally I made sure to use colours to match the wedding invitations so it would fit with the colour theme for the wedding.
Once again, there are a few challenges that I would like to enter:
well that's a very quick post from me as we are about to head out for a BBQ. Have a happy Sunday everyone!

However, it being July and past the half way point in the year, our crafty minds do tend to start looking towards Christmas because we need lots of time to get our mojo going.
So here's a card that I put together using some very traditional Christmas colours. The papers that you see are digital ones from Bearly Mine and of course Humphrey is from Crafters Companion.
It took a little while to colour this one as there are quite a lot of elements and colour changes involved, but it is well worth the effort as the final image is just adorable.
So there are a lot of Christmas challenges around this week, and here are a few that I would like to enter:
