Some Quality Crafting Time.......

Isn't it hard to find the time to craft when you are working and it is school holidays...........well not for long.........maybe i will have more time this coming week...........after three months off going back to work came as a bit of a shock...........i think i tried to hard lol........oh well thankfully i have managed to make some creations.....


The first creation is for the theme of 'Alter it', where Cupcake Craft and Try it on Tuesdays both share this theme and over at Totally Papercrafts their theme is 'Not a Card'........check out their DT work its fabulous.......

Here i have used a mini jotter pad and turned it into a Christmas Wish List.


Gorgeous Tilda hanging her decorations onto the tree. The BG paper is from Hot of the Press and the flowers are from Papermania's Cranberry & Apple collection.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Over at Cards For Men the theme is 'G is for.....' and i had this digi image lying around so decided to plump for 'Golf' as the G........plus i followed a great sketch over at Sketch N Stash, so hope it meets that challenge.....loving all the DT work from you all........


The old is the twine and the new is the candi for me this week.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now over at the Lili of the Valley Challenge the fabulous Pops has drawn us a sketch to follow.........great DT work really beautiful and inspiring...........i teamed this one up with the lovely challenge of 'A Pinch and A Punch' over at Cute Card Thursday.......great DT work guys thank you.......



Gorgeous Lili of the Valley stamp....another of my favourites. The punch element of it is these punched leaves from a MS punch .......gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, this time i tried whirling the stems.....looks quite effective. The BG papers are from My Minds Eye.


'So Glad We're Friends'

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mo's Challenge also has a lovely sketch to follow this week.....and this is what i came up with............and because this is such a pretty card i think i will enter this into the Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge of 'Anything Goes'

PLUS don't forget it is their
HUGE Stamp-tember Blog Hop and Treasure Hunt !!


Oh look it must have been sunny when i took this as i can now see the shadows lol oh well........the BG papers are from Echo Park and Papermania, the gorgeous flowers once again are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley stamps.


'Wishing You Sunshine all Year Round'

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And finally, A Christmas Card........over at Just Magnolia the theme this time is 'Anything Goes ........with Circles'.......great challenge guys and love all the DT work.................plus over at Bah! Humbug the theme is 'Sentiment/Text'.......


Gorgeous hAnglar boy & girl.........the BG papers are from Hot of the Press as is the sentiment and the flowers are from Papermania.


'JOY'
