Charisma Cardz

This weeks challenge at Charisma is Hot Hot Hot
we are sponsored this week by both the Digistamp Boutique and Pink Cat Studio
I got this wonderful image from Digistamp Boutique called Harold to play with and thought it fitted in nicely with the challenge given that dragons blow out fire- hence the hot hot hot and the candle on the cake could be hot hot hot and then I went for the sentiment of Hot Stuff and used some nice bright paper and colours
Looking forward to seeing what you come with for the challenge
Have a lovely day

Charisma Cardz

The challenge this week at Charisma Cardz is to use DIE CUTS, so of course I had to use the Tim Holz tattered florals die along with the scalloped nestie die
Taken me ages to do this post as my mouse is playing up and according to my anti virus I am virsu free so maybe the old mouse has kicked the bucket and must go to mouse heaven to be replaced by a new one
Have a good day

Simon Says Stamp and Show

Am so loving the new Simon Says challenge blog!The challenge this week is to create something in the "Wendy Vecchi Studio 409 Style" and if you haven't checked this blog out then you really need to- pop over to the Simon says challenge and follow the link at this weeks challenge and spend ages with a cuppa drooling over this blog
I just hope my creation qualifies
I used white dabber on chipboard then cut out a scalloped oval from it then used distress inks over and stamped Tim Holz stamp over it
Stapled the netting on to it and cut a flower from the rest of the chipboard and used crackle paint on the butterfly- i also used the Wendy technique of applying glossy accents to the centre of the pin
No agility for me tonight as Misty has been at the vets for the last couple of weeks with a leg or back problem that is very intermittent and only really show up when she has to jump or go up stairs etc, so she has had strict rest and pain killers. Now building up her exercise and cutting the medicine down to see how she goes- hopefully this will work cause if it doesn't she will need x rayed ... so fingers crossed

Forever Friends and Totally Gorjuss

The Forever Friends challenge this week is to make a notebook and if I am lucky I have just scraped in on time for this one

This is the sketch at totally Gorjuss this week and guess what I made a Christmas card for this one- never heard of before, me doing Christmas in August
Its a lovely day here but again I have shut me eyes to the grass- I did do some housework, cleaned the hamster and pulled a few weeds but I reckon if I don't look at the grass it will be fine
Finished watching all the episodes of Sex and the City last night and boy will I miss that programme now- feel as if I have lost four friends now that its over- but I still have the movies to see
Hope you are having a good weekend
