This is my card for Cute Card thursday which is New Beginnings and also my card for the new Lillyboo challenge(they give you this free download to use and isn't it wonderful)- found out about it form my funky hand teamie Enfys who is on the DT- you will find the link under challenges on the right hand side of my blog
Oh dear- just realised there is actually a recipe that goes with the Lilly Boo challenge- 2 Ribbons, 3 Flowers and 4 Brads- not even close- so will have to redo this challenge- yet another KRAFT moment from me!!!! This is my card for the Forever Friends challenge which is Brads or Eyelets I used brads to decorate my embossed panel and the papers are Cosmo Cricket
What a night I have had- house alarm suddenly started going off and had to ring the guy out- oh says he my son will come tomorrow and the alarm will burn itself out after a while and stop ringing Well... four and half hours later.... still going strong!!! Had to call him again... my says he I thought it would have stopped by now... it will eventually.... but its getting late says me and there are lots of young children in neighbouring houses that will be in bed and I don't want people at my door complaining Do you have a ladder says he.... eh no I am not alarm repair man says me... oh says he I am not insured to go up ladder anyway at this time of night!!!!! Oh my , give me strength!!! just stop the thing from ringing would you- ok says he give me twenty minutes... what for you only live round the corner!!! Alarm now stopped..... could he not have done that first time round!!! oh and says he... don't let that thing near me... talking of my darling Misty ... well that really got my back up Think when he comes(well his son) tomorrow to fix it I will tell him just to disconnect the darn thing as i haven't used it in years cause That Thing!!! is a better alarm and doesn't cost electricity to run it! Moan over AllisonX
The challenge this week at Allsorts is No Stamping So for this I thought I would dig out dies cuts and use those I used the snowflake embossing folder on the scalloped circle and id my gingerbread man up in blue and added felt letters for SON and a die cut sentiment saying with love Still not getting in the Christmas mode at all.
At least its raining today so that means no grass cutting getting done!just have to craft all day! nothing else for it..... oh I do lead a hard life! AllisonX
I am trying to get in the card making Christmas spirit but its not really happening for me!
So this is my offering this week
Am feeling a bit stuffed- just munched my way through a load of Thornton's choccies
Bought some yesterday and the woman in the shop said.. cause you bought something you can have these for a pound or these for two pound and I said... oooh yum I'll have some of those and those then please..... then she said pick a choccy from the display... ooh more yumminess so i picked a champagne truffle and now I feel a bit stuffed and never want to see another chocolate again- well at least for an hour or two!
My don't the weeks just fly by and here we are again with another great Charisma challenge
And this week it is Scrap It- you can make a layout, a book, what ever you fancy
I did a layout of my girlie Misty using my favourite photo of her
if she knows she is getting her photo taken she acts all shy and ends up taking a terrible photo(just like me!) but if you catch her in action the photos are amazing.... with this photo she is focused on my face to see which way I am going to kick the ball- yes she can tell by my eyes which direction it is going in- I think she was a goal keeper in a previous life- not a lot of balls get by her and I often kick it straight into her mouth but she has learned to live with my non football skills
Looking forward to seeing what wonderful scrap pages etc you make
Running a bit late with this one this week but the challenge for Penny Black is
blue, tan and cream
Now me not paying enough attention again thought it was natural so went for white!Oh dear one of these weeks weeks I will pay full attention to what is required in all the challenges- silly me, so just kid on it's a creamy white!
I used my new Prima dotty background stamp and my lovely PB floral image and the tag say Friendship
Been having rather a hectic week this week but hoping to get caught up with my cards over the next couple of days and had a few orders I had to get done- you know the ones... can I have a card for.... but I need it tomorrow!!!! oh of course I won't sleep and stay up all night to make it but Ok no problem!
This is my take on the sketch at Moving Along With The Times this week. The theme(see I'm getting better and paying attention to the fact there is also a theme!) is Teen Card So what better than to get my Rock Chick stamps back out again along with the Tim Holz background stamp and a few flowers and hey presto! Chucking it down with rain here today and I now have two rather soggy doggies after their walk and who said chivalry is dead!- went to the pet shop to get a sack of dog food and a kind man carried it out to the car for me- made my morning that did Have a lovely day AllisonX
This is my entry for my lovely Funky Hand team mate Carol's sketch- every fortnight she gives us a lovely sketch
The papers are from in the depths of my Museum and don't you just love love love the new Victoria embossing folder- think that might become my new swiss dots
This one is for the Forever Friends challenge which this week is Lazy Days of Summer
The papers are from my museum yet again and the flowers are Dawn Bibby I think(they came from QVC anyway- a long time ago) and the sentiment says girls rule- it is summery for me as i am not normally a bright pink sort of gal.
And theres a new challenge coming on the 7th September
The challenge at the Pink Elephant this week is a colour challenge
Brown, Torquoise and Neutral
I think this is my new style of card... having a day off today and oh what a pity it's raining so just have to craft! Have made two or three(well five!!) variations of this today and I must admit I am liking it
It has colours I love- brown and blue and cardboard, flowers a bit of bling and a mad stamp!
On a roll now so away to do my lovely Funky Hand teamie Carol's sketch .... so be back shortly.. oh think I better take the dogs back out again while it's stopped raining... oh what a decision raging mojo or walk????
Think the walk will have to win seeing as it's Misty's 5th Happy Happy Birthday today
