Penny Black Challenge

Can't believe the time- where does it go to!!!!!

Took some time out though to join in with the Penny Black challenge this week

The inspiration I took from the card as the sentiment Make a Wish and the blue, red and white colour scheme and I used these cute stickeroos.

Delicious Doodles

Happy New Year and welcome to the first Delicious Doodles challenge of 2012 and it's all about New Things, so just use anything new on your card.
I used the new Fallen image by Teri along with papers from Funky Hand for my card.
Do hope you can join in this fortnight with us at

Delicious Doodles Challenge

I am going to try and organise myself better this year and be a better blogger and joiner in of challenges- just feel as if the last three months of last year were a bit hectic. The sun has actually made an appearance which makes all the difference, it's a bit depressing when it's dark when you get up, dull all day and then dark when you come home from work.

I've had a couple of days when after taking the dogs out I have done NOTHING at all so I've done that, bored with it now and need to make some plans of crafty stuff to do, household things to get done and plans for the year ahead as I can stop worrying so much about the dogs as Misty is on the mend- her claws are coming in nicely now and starting to wean her off the steroids and Bud is on medication for his Cushings which seems to be helping, just needs regular blood tests to make sure everything is ok with him

Have a good weekend everyone and to those who have been back at work this week then at least it was a short week and it's now the weekend and to those like me who were off this week, enjoy your last couple of days of freedom

Haunted Design House- Macabre Monday

It's all about Gothic this week at Macabre Monday and having just made this card from the Debbie Moore Twilight CD it suited the challenge to a tee.
So glad there's nothing on the tv tonight so might actually get some cards made as I've spent the last few days doing nothing very much at all
