A Fiesta by the sea...

It's that time again over at RibbonMad ~ this month's kit is a gorgeously bright bundle of delight going by the name of *Fiesta* :)
As always, it's highly unlikely they'll be around for long & do have a peek at the kit add-ons too ~ yum!

At Tilda & Friends this week we're *Beside the Sea* ~ the other DT members have excelled themselves once again, they really are a fantastic bunch you know! The challenge is here ~ we do love to see your creations & this week there are some images & embellies up for grabs ~ I'll see you there ;)

Katharina's sketch...

This week CCT has one of Katharina's gorgeous sketches for you, you can have a peek at it here.
Being me, I couldn't just follow the sketch ~ I had to turn it around & twiddle with it a bit! Hopefully Katharina doesn't mind...;)
There are some very sweet stamps up for grabs this week too, so hop on over & join in!

I also need to say a great big thank you to two very lovely blog buddies ~ Jo for this award:

and Bernie for this one:

Thank you so much both, these really do mean a lot especially considering what a bad blogger I've been lately! I'll be back later when I've had a think about who to pass them on to ;)

Birds of a Feather...

Hmmmm, where do I start with this one??!! There's a bit of a mix going on here ~ 3 Magnolia stamps, 1 little bit of a Nellie & some scribbly doodling ;)
Head on over to Tilda & Friends for a peek at this weeks feathery challenge ~ there's one of my all-time favourite Magnolias up for grabs :)

Welcome li'l Chloe...

Way back here I made a card to send to some dear friends who had just found out a baby was on the way ~ here's the card I just made to congratulate them on the safe arrival of their very gorgeous new daughter Chloe. It's definately a happy day!

And because baby cards are just that little more special, this got some extra prettying on the back too ;)

Lilac & lime sketches...

Here's my slightly late take on the PTW challenge for this week ~ Lucious Lime & Lilac.
I've used the latest sketch from the very talented Nicola ~ you can have a peek at it here =)

Hmmmm, I seem to be more than a little bit in love with this stamp at the mo ~ time to put it away for a bit methinks!

Somebody likes me...

Lots of love is on its way to the fabbalicious Lynn who, despite spending the past few days telling me off, has given me this very pretty award :) A big thank you to you babes ~ I'm sending it right back at ya!
I'm going to pass this on to the girls I DT with on Tilda & Friends and on CCT ~ not only do they all create some serious gorgeousness every week, they also actually let me join in too!

We're all going on a summer holiday {vacation}...

Here's my attempt at this weeks CCT challenge ~ I have to admit I don't really like this card, it wasn't what I originally planned, but the stamp I wanted to use didn't turn up in time :(
Rather annoyingly it arrived this morning! So I'm thinking I might just make the card I originally wanted to & enter it in the challenge under an alias ~ there is a rather lovely Paris Tilda to be won that I don't have...think anyone would realise it was me?

Glorious Green...

The past week's been a bit blurgh, so all thing's crafty have been on hold ~ hopefully everything's back to normal now though!
Tilda & Friends are celebrating the gloriousness of green this week ~ you can have a peek at the challenge & the gorgeous examples by the DT here =)

Blog hopping...

I was having a li'l blog hop yesterday {all I can do at the mo, I'm still not able to leave comments...} & saw this lovely sketch of Claudia's ~ I just had to have a little play!
I had to search my garden for a tiny bit of sunshine this evening in between work shifts, so please ignore the fact that the card is on a step in my garden!
Hope everyone has a lovely Bank Holiday weekend ~ spare a thought for those of us who'll be at work, won't you? ;)

Now that I can actually leave comments, I'm gonna sneek this into the Arty Girlz open theme challenge ;) Cheeky? Who me?!

fingers crossed...

I had lots of trouble with blogger yesterday, so I'm just going to quickly load up my pics for Tilda & friends and CCT & hope that I can post them!
Make sure you have a peek at this weeks challenges & the lovliness created by the DT's ~ Tilda & friends is here, Cute Card Thursday here =)
Hopefully I'll be back later!
