A Charming Dottie!

This week's challenge over at Dottie's World is to make a card or project using 2 charms and 1 brad, and of course a Charmed Download!

Completely stressed (shall we just mention the word "children!) shattered and mojo-less, I just wasn't happy with where to put TWO charms so I came up with a weird framelike creation!LOL
I enjoyed using me new pastel Christmas papers so much last week, I kept to the same colour scheme and have another Chrimbo card in my box!

Bye for now!

A Sketch for a Wedding!

I needed to make a Wedding card so when I saw the sketch over on Cardmaking and PaperCraft forum it was madness not to use it.

Here is the sketch;

and here is my adaptation of it!

It's rather stressful here, I hope to have a bit more relaxing crafty time!

Dottie's Conditional Christmas Challenge!

Hello everyone, another Sunday another challenge over at Dottie's World;

"This is the time we all make a start on our huge pile of Christmas cards - if it isn't then it should be as you surely don't want that last minute panic :-) To get you started we would like you to create a Christmas card, the condition here is that you must not use traditional Christmas colours, so I don't want to see any reds or greens, anything else is good to go. The only absolute must-have is of course one of the gorgeous Charmed downloads. "

Now this was the perfect reason to get out the new pack of Dovecraft Christmas papers, loads of yummy soft pastel colours. I hope you like my little Christmas Pixie, she is one of my all time favs!

My card was also made for;

My Time to Craft - Jewelled. I have never used these stick on gems before , they were sent to me by a very kind cyber friend and fellow crafter, a little while back. I have got them out, look at them and put them safely back away in their little apt time to actually USE some! LOL

The Great Outdoors

It's my turn to set the challenge over at Dottie's World this week!

I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone, children going back to school and the thought of Autumn ahead already. Let's make the most of the weather whilst we can!

Please make a card, project with an outdoor theme. That's the only requiremnt apart from obviously using one or more of the fabby Charmed Downloads.


Pop over to Dottie's and join us! xx

A 1st Birthday card!

With both the children being off on school holidays I have had very little chance to craft but I loved making this card, another wonderful image from Mo Manning. Jack started Grammar school today and I have spent most of the morning at the opticians with Amelia but hopefully once the children are all settled and in a new routine, I will shuffle around some time for my crafting again despite my return to work next week!

Sorry for the pictures, the battery on my camera needed charging so I had to use Chris's camera!

I am eagery waitng for Jack to come home now- hope he has had a good day!
