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:
Thanks for visiting me today. :-)

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.
