Wow actually entering 2 challenges this week. Loved this theme over at Just Magnolia - monochrome. I love the way Kim uses stickles on her cards and have given it a go all round the edges - not sure it shows on photos. It really does add that something to the card.

Really enjoyed this challenge - thanks.

I have finally found some time to enter another challenge. Dont know where the time goes!!
I really need to set some time aside for myself! Or does that not happen till kids leave home. I hadnt checked my blog for some time so imagine my surprise to discover 2 lovely followers - so kind of you to get me started and what kind comments - thanks.
Anyway here is my card for the sugar bowl sketch. Wasnt sure if colours were working with the big bold black border but feel it came together ok in the end.
Really enjoyed this sketch - thanks Kathy.

If im going to be taking this blogging seriously I think I need to get some photography skills!! My piccies are terrible. Apologies!!
Thanks for looking

Today I am submitting a card to the Just Magnolia Challenge for the first time. I hope my flowers actually pass as flowers!! Really need to get some more flower punches. I love the look of all the hand made flowers.

I love these papers and colours and have used up left over papers from a previous card.
Thanks for looking.

My twin daughters have got a 5th birthday party this weekend, a joint one so 2 pressies to buy! Thought I would show the cards I have made for them. Its a 5th birthday.

I love this little manga fairy from Sugar Nellie. So versatile.

And this little cutie is gorgeous too!
