What a week but I Have Won my first challenge, so happy!

Hello peeps I hope you are all well and having loads of crafting time!

I want to apologise for not visiting your blogs much recently. This week I've had a cold and sneezed and hurt my back. Bad Times :0(

I've been feeling a little low as I've not had any craft time as I can't sit in one place for long but I popped on the computer yesterday and thought I would just have a look at Passion For ProMarkers as I love this blog. I looked at a couple of tutorials and a few of the DT cards and as I was about to close it down I noticed my card in a little picture at the top right of the page. I was shocked to see that I was the winner of week 35. Good Times :0)

I never win anything so Thank You for picking me Passion for ProMarkers.

Have a great weekend, what's left of it and take care.

New Challenge Blog - "A Gem of a Challenge"

Just a quickie as I should be in bed but I can't sleep! .

Today we've been trying to clear my crafting clutter and doing housework that has been forgotten about since attempting to get back into my card making.

Oh what a state we have got into! I have enjoyed finding things I had forgotten about and so have my little Caitlin and Lewis! Everything I want to get rid of they wanted to keep! Little Lewis just wants to eat everything and Caitlin wants to stamp everything even if there's no ink on it! So, If you have any tips on being a Mum of 2 little one's with a tidy house and yet still plenty of cleaning/crafting time then please let me know your secrets!!!

Anyway, as a bit of a 'time out' I thought I would have a little look at what us going on in the blogging world and I came across a new challenge, "A Gem of a Challenge", starting on the 8th February at 8.30am.

It is a monthly challenge (at the moment) and the lucky winner will get their choice of 2 of the lovely Pink Gem Stamps. I only have 3 Pink Gem stamps so far but a very large wish list too as they are beautiful stamps that give such clear images and great to colour in. Take a look at the range of stamps here :0) and please let your followers know too ;0)

I hope to see you in the first challenge :0)

Take care,

Challenge Card

Here is my entry for the Stampin' for the Weekend which follows the lovely sketch from Fiona and Passion for ProMarkers challenges. Over at Papertake Weekly Challenge the theme is Pink although other colours may be used but it has to be predominantly pink and now that I have entered I'm not sure it is pink enough! I have coloured the image with ProMarkers and used paper from my stash. The stamp is from Sugar Nellie - Pen Pal.

Thanks for looking and also for all the lovely comments on my last post. It is much appreciated :0)

One card - 10 Challenges

It's been a while since my last post. I'm glad to say that the snow here is starting to thaw. I built a snow bear who was 7ft tall and he has quite a lean on him now, looks like he is going to crash to the ground any minute. It was lovely for the first 2 days but we have all been cooped up in our little house for too long now.

Still at least I have found the time to make a card with my new Whiff of Joy Stamp. I have made this card for my friend Rachael who's little boy Charley arrived 6 weeks early. He is doing really well considering and they hope to go home soon.

I am entering this card in 10 challenges and have followed the lovely sketch on Whiff of joy and used the colours Cocoa and Cool Aqua for the Passion for ProMarkers Challenge. My new stamp that arrived yesterday is being used for Crafty Cardmakers Challenge and I have used layering for the ABC Challenge. Again using the new stamp I have entered Charisma Cardz Challenge, Raise the Bar Challenge and Creative Inspirations which you need to use new stash. The Colour Create Challenge uses the colours Kraft, Blue and White. A card for a New Born Child is the challenge over at Fun with Shapes and more and over at By The Cute And Girly the challenge is for something New.

I'm really looking forward to making more cards this year and I think this stamp will come in very handy as there are 5 more babies due to friends and family between now and March. They certainly have been busy, lol.

Well thanks for looking and for any comments left. I really appreciate it...

Take care all and have a lovely weekend xxx

First Card of 2010 - New Challenge

Here is my first card of 2010 which I am going to enter into a challenge for The Sugar Bowl Challenge 26. I have followed a brilliant and really easy sketch from Lilian here,

You also have to use something 'new' ie New Baby, House, or even new stash. I have used my new nesties and a new stamp from Sugar Nellie (Pen pal)! The image is coloured using Pro Markers some of which are new too and I will be sending this card to one of my new online buddies.

Anyway I wish you all a fantastic New Year and hope to be doing more blogging this year.

Take care and thanks for looking xx
