Everything's happy!

Good morning blogworld,

I'm seriously behind with commenting now - and I probably won't catch up until the daughter goes back to school next week.  So apologies all round for neglecting everyone, promise it's nothing personal!

So with that apology out of the way, here's my card for the new challenge over at MAWTT - the challenge, set this week by our lovely Teamie Judith, is to have the word 'happy' on your project'.

As I'm strapped for time right now - I went the easy route chose 'Happy Birthday' and made a very simple card.

Here you go:

I used:

Digi Stamp:
Little Miss Mufet - Sugar'n Spice Dolls Pepermint
coloured with my Copics

Papermania - Happy Birthday (green spots)

Well that's it folks apart from to say hope you all have a lovely Easter and see you next week.


Ahhh, and the jigsaw hunt went very well - we had a grand haul of 6 jigsaws and 4 games all for less than 10 squid!  Not bad, eh!

A challenge, or two:

It's spring - all over again!

Deja vu blogworld!

Here I am back again!  If you are here a looking for Easter it's in the post above (or below depending on whether you wrote this or are reading it - blonde moment there!).

In this post it's all about 'Spring time' which is the challenge over at All Dressed Up - so anything either Spring colours or Spring flowers, please.

I went for the colours option and a simple card again:

So here is card the second:

I used:

PS - Don't know if I'm back home yet - but am hoping the charity shop wander went well!!

It's Easter!

Well nearly anyway!

So good morning blogworld,  I'm not hanging around long this morning as I've got another post coming up this evening, so I'm going to show and run!

This post is for the new challenge over at Papertake Weekly and this week (as you may have guessed from the title up there!) it's Hapy Easter.  There is, as always, a fabulous prize and great inspiration from the DT.

Now, as I've been bleating on about, it's Easter hols here and I'm running around like a headless chicken trying to keep the daughter entertained, plus keep on top of the housework, plus do some crafting - something has to give and so my next few cards will be pretty simple!  Just like moi!

Here's card the first:

Front shot:

Close up:

I used:

Digi stamp:
Whimsie Doodle freebie
coloured with my Copics

The paper is from a very old pack of 12x12 papers - no idea whose it is but I got it from QVC - so it's got to be old!!
Martha Stewart glitter

Fiskars punch

And that's it folks!

I'm scheduling this as I'm off swimming with SWMbO again, then we are hitting the charity shops for jigsaws!

See you later


A challenge, or two:

Oldie but a Goodie: it's the paper that's my oldie - it's got to be at least 4 or 5 years old.
