My pc decided to close itself down on me Friday lunchtime, and I we were at a birthday party yesterday so didn't even switch my pc on. So it's time for a quick card catch up.
First up is my card for Just Christmas and Birthdays as you can see I went for the christmas option, there is a lovely sketch to follow. I adore this snowman image and used him a lot for my cards last year but left him black and white, so I decided to jazzy him up with a bit of colour!! My papers are from my new Papermania Naughty and Nice Christmas pad that I picked up in the sale, the gems are from Poundland and the sticky ribbon from my stash. This card also qualifies for the Secret Crafter challenge 'Glitter' as he sparkles nicely as I have highlighted the snow with glitter glue!This card is again covering 2 challenges well 3 really as I have used the Sketch and Stash sketch, my card has a horse on it for the Papertake Weekly 'Animalia' theme and as my card is suitable for a child this is also going to be my entry for My Time to Craft.and finally, I have once more used the Sketch and Stash sketch (this is so versatile!) and this is my card for the Whiff of Joy 'friendship' challenge. This card is amongst one of my favourites, I think it is so pretty, and the flowers which I originally rejected absolutely make the card so nice. (Hubby brought them home from work for me along with some others which someone had thrown away, the others are rather big and I thought these were too little, that was until I looked at them properly and now wish he'd found more!!!!)Well that's it for crafty makes until I make some more lol!!
As I mentioned yesterday we went to my friends as her youngest son was having his birthday party. It was a carnival feel with games such as hook a duck, knock the cans down, guess how many marbles in the jar, lucky dip, face painting, it was really good. All my friends hubby's idea, he is so good with the children, Lillie and Hollie thoroughly enjoyed themselves and won a couple of prizes.
Today has been a lazy day, well apart from cleaning out the animals which is a task in itself. but Hollie has been in her element giving all the piggies individual cuddles! Here she is with Treacle our oldest piggy who just loves a good cuddle.
