sunday sketch and stamp # 11

hi there i hope you are having a lovely monday, we had training day at school and i have to say i was pretty bored. why do they print out a pack for you to read and then proceed to do a power point presentation on it!!!!!!! any way the afternoon was better and i was able to sort out my time table with the french dept. well this card is a bit different as i made it but my friend chose all the elements. she likes very traditional cards and as she has ordered quite a few who am i to complain. the sketch is for the challenge on sunday sketch and stamp. the stamp is from clarity stamps and the rest is from my stash. a very simple card but she loves it. i do prefer cutie ones myself. happy crafting and thanks for dropping in x

card number 2 from me tonight is for the challenge on mwatt and it is a sketch plus the theme of birthdays. as i have quite a few 'special' birthdays coming up i thought i would get started on them. this one will probably be for sophie's 2nd birthday. how time flies!!!! the stamps are sugar nellies and are called 'daisy with pram and daisy with dolly'. the paper, card and lace are all from my goodies. sophie loves pink so she should love this, it is also the first 'huge' card i have made. i hope you have had a great weekend and you all have a fab week. ally pally next week and i can't wait. take care x

stampin for the weekend

this card was for the challenge on stampin for the weekend but when i have gone onto their blog they have suspended it because of a death in one of the girls family and also ill health so my thoughts go out to them all. the stamp is another sugar nellie called 'pip with presents. i have shrunk a christmas tree and cut out 3 presents as embellishments. thanks for dropping in,i probably won't be around for the next few days i am babysitting george and sophie x

the sugar bowl # 19 (plus pink and brown)

well i didn't manage to get anything done yesterday but i have made up for it tonight. the first post is for the challenge set by marlene at the sugar bowl, which is the sketch plus the colour scheme of pink and brown. not a traditional colour for a christmas card i know but i think it has turned out really well. the stamp is a sugar nellie called 'honey's snowman' and the rest is from my goodies. i used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the background. sorry the picture is on the wonk but it was the only way to get the background to look the right colour,(all to do with lighting apparently!!!!) i will be back in a while with card number 2.
