Charisma Cardz - Easter

Good morning, last night was fantastic, Mcfly were amazing as always but I'll post some pics etc later!
Today is the start of the new challenge over at Charisma Cardz and the theme is very appropriately 'Easter'.
I took inspiration from issue 98 of Quick Cards Made Easy mag.  This is the only easter card that I've made this year, I've cheated and bought some!!!  The image is decoupaged so stand nice and proud, and that cupcake looks super yummy!
As I always say (but it's true!) we have fab sponsors offering our winners some great prizes so please pop over to the blog and join in.

The wait is almost over!!!!!

for tonight I'll be singing my little heart out!
it's been a couple of years since I last saw my boys, and I really cannot wait!

we are seated on row 'M' it's the closest I've been, only disappointment is we are Tom side of the stage and he's my least favourite.  Danny is my fave closely followed by Dougie (current king of the jungle!).

Charisma Cardz -Alter It

Good morning, as you can see I'm back up and running again, the laptop had an extended stay as I was out when they tried to deliver, but has come back with a new hard drive and 'ac' adapter.  Seems to be ok so far!!!

It's time for a new challenge over at Charisma Cardz and this weeks theme is Alter It.
So I got to cutting up one of the girls old school dresses (notice the paint stains around the bottom, ha you'd think the paint they use in school would be washable wouldn't you?!).
here are a couple of flowers that I made, the 1 on the left is made with 1 strip of material twisted and hot glued onto a felt cirlcle. The 1 on the right is hand sewed using 5 circles cut from the material, a small bit of lace to fill in the middle and a button to finish, again with a felt patch on the back.  These both have brooch pins on the back so can be worn as a brooch or attached to a hairband!
and here is an example of a hairband (Hollie has gone to school wearing this one this morning!).  The 2 blue 'flowers' are made from material from a pair of outgrown pyjama bottoms!!

Please check out the blog for sponsor and prize details, which as you know by now are always fab!!

My poor laptop is poorly again, and has gone on holiday to have a new hard drive fitted (I think that makes it the second in a year!).  I must overwork the poor thing lol!!!!  A week without it, what will I do?  If I get severe withdrawal symptoms I'll just have to stoke up my old desktop but will need to switch that on in the morning just so that I can use it that evening, yes it's that slow!  So I'll see you all in a weeks time!
Don't forget there's a new challenge on over at Charisma Cardz, so why not check that out and have a go?  I'll be honest I bottled out this week, first time I've done that, but masking and using 3 different stamped images scared me big time, suppose I should've given it a go, but honestly haven't inked up any of my stamps for weeks, maybe even months, I'm seriously considering having a big sort out and selling off a lot of my crafty goodies because I just don't have the mojo for it like I used to.
