Rain, rain go away...

First up for today is Tilda & Friends {only a day after the challenge went up ~ not bad for me!}. We wanna see some summery blooming gorgeousness this week please ~ you can see some fabby ATC's from the rest of the DT here :)

The CCT challenge for this week {same day blogging ~ whooo-hooo!} gave me the total heebie-jeebies when I first saw it ~ no patterned paper??? Is that even possible???
I solved the problem by making the teensiest, tiniest card I could, there's no room for any pp you see ;)
Hope you're having a lovely {rain-free} day!

Just because...

...I live somewhere so incredibly beautiful & I don't appreciate it anywhere near as much as I should.
So I thought I'd share a bit of it with you ~ cos I'm nice like that :)

Oh & yes ~ we really do get dolphins swimming along in the bay & the Horrors think it's oh so cool to tell people they actually really truly have swam with dolphins :)

Dutch Dare #2

I stumbled across the new Dutch Dare Card Challenge blog & had to join in ~ the challenge was to use a stamped image & my new Magnolias still hadn't had a sniff of StazOn ~ so I inked one up & made this!
Go have a peek at the challenge here ~ there's a yummy stamp set on offer too :)

Yeah, I know...

...even with a nudge {thanks!} I'm still a bit late... ;)
CCT have a nice, easy peasy challenge for you this week ~ all you have to do is make a birthday card :) There's a truly gorgeous looking prize up for grabs too, which has been donated by the very lovely Korin at Sweet & Sassy Stamps.
I actually had a rather crafty day yesterday & have a few bits I can show you ~ as usual this is a post & run in between all the other things I should be doing right now, so I'll be back later.
Happy Monday everyone!

...I just realised I haven't blogged for ages! So here are last weeks Tilda & Friends ATC and Cute Card Thursdays creation ~ better late than never ;)
This week has just been soooo busy, lots of work, school stuff and yesterday was this fella's birthday

How is it possible that I'm mum to an 8 year old? How??!!!

Tilda & Friends has a fantastic challenge this week that was set by Jacqui, who has come to play with us this month ~ a big thank you to Jacqui for not only a fab challenge, but also a few giggles along the way! There's a prize to be won this week too ~ have a peek here :)

I'll be back tomorrow with the next CCT challenge ~ if I'm not can someone please give a reminding nudge?!

A spoonfull of sugar...

There's a recipe over at A Spoonfull of Sugar this week ~ how could I resist?!
This was another quick make, I'll add a greeting as soon as I know where it's headed!

This has to be my favourite stamp at the mo ~ isn't she just gorgeous?!

Just a quickie from me today ~ Katharina has done another beautiful sketch for PTW & I just had to have a play!
Hope everyone's enjoying the sunshine :)

Here are a few cards I made last night for some forum challenges ~ I must 'fess up to being a bit sneaky though & using paint on all of them so that I could enter them into this weeks ArtyGirlz challenge...Oh come on, do you expect any less of me?!

Sunshine & snow...

I did have a giggle last week when I saw the the challenges for Tilda & Friends & CCT ~ one with a sunshine theme & the other Christmas!
Hop on over to Tilda & Friends for this weeks *Sunshine* challenge ~ one of the DT {hmmm, have a feeling that's me ;)} will be sending out some stamped images to one lucky person this week :)
CCT have a gorgeous Christmas themed CD up for grabs this week ~ must admit I'm a last minute kinda girl, so making a Christmas card at any time other than the week before Christmas did seem kinda odd!

I must just say a big thank you to everyone who has been to say hello recently ~ I've been so busy this past week & just haven't had the time to come & say hello back :( I'm hoping to have a good old blog-hop tonight though!
