My card for the DT this week is a 'thank-you teacher' card. Dp is daisy d's, alphas were a freebie from a mag which I've coloured with pro-markers, Edwin coloured with pms, and embellishments are from me & my big ideas.

I've been given 2 new lovely awards from my good friend Rozzy and 2 from the lovely Maxine. The bottom 2 are from Rozzy and the 2nd and bottom ones from Maxine. Please go and visit their blogs for some fab inspiration. I'll try to remember to pass this on to 5 other bloggers this time. Thanks Rozzy and Maxine. Sorry I haven't been blog-hopping as much this last few weeks. this has been due to my bad health. I'm starting to gradually feel better now, so things will soon be back to normal. Thanks to everyone for their support, I really appreciate it.
Edited, to add more awards from Jo (Janpear) (the third award) and Liz (the top award). Thank you both, I really appreciate you giving me these awards. Please visit their fab blogs.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge No.4

It's Challenge 4 at C.R.A.F.T. this week and it's a recipe: 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 ribbon. You can create anything you like, it doesn't have to be a card. There is a prize of 2 fab stamps from Debbie at The Crafty Pad. Please remember new work only to be included in the draw.
My card for the DT this week was made with one of my new stamps by Creative Expressions called 'Ladies'. I paper-pieced the dress with the same K&Co. paper used on the other side of the card, and coloured the rest with pro-markers, then added some stickles to the dress. the other dp is Heidi Grace, and it's a lovely felt paper. The 3 glittery flowers are by Craftime. The white ribbon is from my stash. Cardstock is from the Jewel stack by DCWV.
Sorry the pic's not very good, there was no daylight left when I took it.

I used a shaped template on blue bazzill, Daisy and Dandelion stamp coloured with pro-markers, sepia Versafine with a Heidi Grace stamp and grass stamps from stash, brown suedy letters, buttons and string from stash.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge No.2

This card is very late after being away, as we're now on challenge 3, which I will post next.
Challenge 2 at C.R.A.F.T. was to make a card with moving components. My card is a sort of spinning card. There is a circle inbetween 2 layers with 6 different pics on it which you rotate to see each pic through an aperture.
Stamps: Little Claire's. dp: K&Co., swirl stamp: Heidi Grace, plus stickles, stickers and peel-offs.


Just had a lovely week in Majorca with hubby and my youngest child. Got back late Thursday evening, but still haven't finished unpacking. I can't seem to get back into anything yet, and I've got lots of cards to make.
I've been given awards by 3 lovely fellow bloggers, which was great to come back to. One was given by Trimgym and the other by Lou and Karen. They all have fab blogs, so please visit them if you can.
