I'm really enjoying my time off work this week. Which means I'm making good ground on the challenges. This time I've tackled the Mojo Monday one over at Poetic Artistry. I thought I would try something different this time, amd move away from all the cute images and colours for a change. I've had this stamp for an absolute age, and never used it, so I dusted it off, and what a great image.
My mum would have liked this card if she'd been alive today. It is the tenth anniversary of her death on 31st August, so she's in my thoughts constantly at the moment. God bless her.
- Stamps: Paper Artsy, Dovecraft

I'm joining in the Papertake Weekly Challenge this week, 'A Stitch In Time. You have to show stitching on your creation, whether it be real or faux. The Design Team has done some incredible designs for inspiration, and you can submit almost anything you choose, as long as it has stitching on it.
I folded the card back on itself in a sort of semi-concertina, (I'm sure there must be a correct term for this), so the inside of the card shows, and can be decorated too.

Well after an eventful couple of days the excitetment is beginning to subside, and it's back to crafting. I'm trying to get around as many challenges as I can this week. I'm also trying to visit some new blogs that I may not have seen before. So if you want me to take a look at yours, then just leave me a comment, and I will help you spread the word.
Now, eye's shut, fingers crossed, turn around three times and make a wish xxxx

I've only just bought this stamp. I wanted to get some of the new school ones, but couldn't find any locally so I settled on this. I just love Magnolia's, as do alot of other people. I see such great ideas out there that I want to try them all. The papers I've had forever, they were not digital ones this time. My printer has just gone Ker Plunk, so I'll have to get DH to have a look at it before I can print again. Just when I was having so much fun too.
Anyway I'll try to take more care with the challenges in future, although I could just put it down to artistic licence. I have no more to show you today.
Louis Smith our Olympic Champion is returning to the village tomorrow, so we are going to 'fly the flag' and decorate the house to show our support, my two youngest can't wait. They love anything like that. Might even take some photo's to show you.
Over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge blog this week the Katharina has designed the sketch:
This was a great sketch to work with, and I knew I wanted to work with brown again, after the last card. But this time I wanted to put it with pink which I love.
I warn you, this is going to get a bit slushy but it's something I am compelled to do.

I've been featured on Inspirational again. What an honour, I don't feel worthy, but apparently I am. I would just like to thank my friend Chris for putting me forward, she's the one who should have her work featured, not me. She's an amazingly talented funny lady. Take a look at her Blog I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
See ya later.
