I have made a card and a scrapbook page this week, aren't I good!!
Scrapbook page (the photo's are of my girls meeting our new 'pet' donkey lol... I won him last year at a fundraiser!)
I have used a fun Whiff of Joy image for my card and the sketch from Sketch Saturday
Why not nip on over to the blog and check out the rest of the girls gorgeous cards for inspiration, and then get creating!
I am also entering my card for the 'Animal Magic' challenge which is over at Cute Card Thursdays.

Dutch Dare are asking for a 'green and yellow' creation
Daring Cardmakers want us to use a 'fish or a frog'
and at My Time to Craft there is a fab sketch from Becky to follow.
The frog is a shaker sticker from Innovations which I've had for a while and not sure how to use it or what to use it on, but I think it's made a pretty ok and fun card the little flies/wasps came in the pack to.

We are also welcoming 2 very talented new members to our design team and these are Caryn and Karen.
another posy pic of my girls, they kept being told how very pretty they looked to which they nodded and agreed, and one man even asked if they were bridesmaids!! They look as though butter wouldn't melt but believe me it sizzles!!!!Yesterday we took them to the farm as our season ticket runs out in just over a week, this was our last chance to go. They had advertised saying that the lambing had started and I just love the cutie little lambs, here is Hollie feeding a little cutie who is only 2 weeks old

I won't be posting anything tomorrow as I've got a few things to do before my friends wedding at 1pm and if I get on here I just know I will be running late, not that I won't anyway!!!
Have a fun weekend whatever you are doing, hope to catch up on Sunday.
Although I gave hubs a shop bought card (always buy them for the words!!) I also very quickly made this card for him last night, so that he had a handmade one to!! I saw this design on my blog travels and just had to 'borrow' the style as I thought it was lovely!
We should be going out for a meal tonight to our favourite chinese restaurant but not sure whether or not we are still going, as hubby is having big trouble with his sinus's and has had a terrible headache for the past 3 days. He says we can still go, "we have to go out it's our anniversary" but I really don't mind either way, not going to be too much fun for him if he isn't feeling well.
We have my best friends wedding (oh I love that film Lol!) tomorrow so I would rather we stay in tonight and he feel better for that tomorrow. Who knows, will have to wait and see.

We have a fantastic prize this week, oh if only I could enter myself!! We have over £80 worth of Cosmic Shimmers to give away to one super lucky winner, these have been very generously donated by Paper Angels.
Carly has asked Sharon to stay on as a permenant member of the design team and she has accepted which is fab, and we would like to welcome both Lyndsey and Joy as our guest designers for the next 8 weeks.
I am also entering this card into a couple of challenges as I think they fit the bill for Secret Crafters theme of 'Spring has Sprung' and also Cute Card Thursday whose theme is similar 'Signs of Spring'.

Carly the 'boss' at Charisma Cardz has set the DT our 2nd challenge, crumbs what a toughy, we're not allowed to make anything that's a circle, square, triangle or rectangle!
So here is what I came up with, I made some of these ages ago and when I did a demo for the 'WI' they found them very amuzing!
I've made hubby a pair of pants and there's also a pair of saucy little black and red panties!Something a bit fun!!
So with the girls ready for school this morning, I wrote a note to stick to the front and back door explaining I would only be a couple of minutes, to please wait as I didn't want to miss them again. I'd no sooner put my pen down and there was knocking at the front door! We use the back door, so I was dashing about getting the door open whilst shoving my feet in whatever shoes came first, and dashed round to meet a big strapping delivery man who was holding a 'huge' box? mmmmm.......that can't be 10 rubber stamps? what on earth could it be?
So I put in on the kitchen floor ready to open when I got back from dropping the girls at school, but temptation got the better of me, so I opened it, and to my surprise and whoops, and giggles and jiggles, this is what was inside >
