Forever Friends

At Forever Friends this week its anything goes so i did another easel card for this challenge
The papers are fom a pad Sue brought me back from Canada and its Recollections Autumn collection and I just love the papers that are in the pad
What's the snow like where you are- not too bad here which is good as I don't like driving in the snow but love to see the dogs playing in it... they get very excited and does does a really funny walk as if its too cold for his feet and he is on his tip toes dancing about.. its hilarious
Have a fab weekend

Add On- spoke too soon... went to take the dogs back out again and a ten minute drive turned into 50 min nightmare as the snow came on really heavy and everyone was skidding everywhere then it took about the same to get home- door is now shut and I am going nowhere except in front of the fire!

2 Sketches 4 You

This is the sketch over at the fabby 2S4Y this week and this is my take on the sketch
I used distress ink and one of my favourite Timmy boy stamps, corrugated card, string and leaves- rather rustic feel to the card but I do love the brownish tones but think I must think pink a bit more maybe for next year or maybe the next!!!
Hope everyone's Christmas shopping is going well- mine has ground to a halt so I must get a move on

At Last

At last I am having the chance to do a couple of challenge cards- having a day off today and am amazed at what I am getting through- some Christmas shopping done including the gift bags, dogs walked and brushed, washing on, tidied craft room, made a sympathy card and these two challenges done and its only the back of 2!!!
This one is for Daring CardMakers- a challenge I have not taken part in for a while just due to time but had to make time for this one which is SEPIA- a colour I just adore working with
But this is a nothing!!! its not a card but just a lump of chipboard so you are seeing it before it morphs into something else- it will either end up a calendar or the front cover of a notebook- what do you think it would suit best?
The next card is for Cute Card Thursday which is swirly girly and it comes in handy as I have a niece's birthday at the weekend so it serves a double purpose- away to pop it in the post now

Hope the rest of the day is as fruitful as I still have a ton of things to do including cleaning out the hamster- that will give Misty something to do too, she loves the chase it about in its ball and drool
And Anice over at Funky Hand is having another sale- a whopping 33% off everything so go on and treat yourself to an early pressie and remember you still have the rest of the month to enter the Get Funky monthly challenge
Hope you are having a fruitful day too

Forever Friends

Over at Forever Friends this week the challenge is anything but a card so I made a calendar.
The spotty paper is from Now Thats Funky Cd- one of my all time favourite papers and it comes in a selection of colours so all the better!
Am trying to decide what to wear tonight- its the dog agility's Chrsitmas night out- without the dogs! and its quite funny seeing everyone all dressed up and not covered in muddy paw prints
Have a great weekend whatever you are up to

Charisma Cardz

The challenge this week is I'm Dreaming of Summer
so I thought I would get out the Candy Doodles CD and do a cupcake card- looks yummy enough to eat!
This challenge was set by Karen who has sadly had to leave the team and I wish her all the best but that now means we are looking for another DT member so pop over to the challenge blog and find out how you can apply
It is quite difficult to do summer when your head is in Christmas but go on and give it a go and I look forward to visiting to seeing what you come up with
