Evening everyone, haven't made much lately - full of ideas - but nothing happening. Anyway, tonight my youngest comes home from school with two party invites (for boys!) - so if that is not a kick up the bum to get motivated again, I dont know what is!! I have cheated though and used 1 card that I had made earlier - the dragon with the googly eyes. I quickly made another card for Toms friend Ethan who is football mad - see what you think -This was made with freebies from Making Cards magazine and some Dovecraft Masculine.

Well that kicked off other things then and made a few ot
her makes :

I Love this card - definately one of my favourite makes so far - I just love the colours.

Next is a card made with a stamped image from Princessw
oo on MSE - Thank you!!

A birthday card for my brother (his birthday is in February!). A bit early me thinks!!

Lastly a christmas card based on an idea on Helens blog - however mine looks nowhere near as good as hers (maybe one day!).

Thats it for tonight - I am feeling my cards need a little more adding to them do you think they look a bit plain?? but not sure what as I dont want to end up spoiling them.

Hi there, thought it was about time to put a few updates on my blog - not been too busy making cards lately, but got a couple of things I thought could go on - my first is a card for the craftyplace challenge which is a card and card making goodies for postpals
to help poorly chi
ldren - next challenge will be for me to try and put the pictures up on craftyplace!! (gulp!)

I also received a parcel on Saturday from the lovely Melissa - after winning the October challenge over on MSE she very kindly sent me some great papers, cardcandy, stamped images and loads of other bits - thank you so

Lastly to help with Alicia's appeal I got my mum on the case to knit me a doll (no raffle is complete without one!!). So hopefully that and a couple of cards will be winging their way to help.

Ooh lovely blog candy!!

Just spotted this on rainmacs blog
there are some lovely makes on there to drool over - as well as they chance of winning some gorgeous blog candy!!

Only had the chance to make 1 card - with the boys now back at school - been trying to catch up with some housework (not very much done though!!). Sorry
it is not such a good picture - the paper is from Creative Craft
World and looked lovely but now that I have cut it to make
the card - not so sure and the greeting on the front is not sticking so good - so will have another bit play with it - why is it that you have a good idea in your head - and then when you put it into practice it never seems as good.

November already!?!

Hope you all had a Happy Halloween - and got lots of sweeties!!! (I know I keep pinching them out of my boys treat bags)

Have a couple of pictures from last night of the boys - a bit of a before and after, when they had decided to take half of their outfits off - didnt t
hink Tom (the youngest) was going to get ready- he was all excited all week and then when it came to it he said he wanted to go to bed as his back was aching!!! However, with the promise of sweets & treats and that Jack would get them all - he soon got into the swing of it and his bad back disappeared - strange!!!

Been able to make a couple of cards today - see what you think not sure if the little angel one
needs a little som
ething extra??

Think will have to ask the lovely ladies advice on mse advice on colouring in with pro-markers - I just cant seem to do it right and get the professional look that the others do ...hmm.

The taller card was made with some Smirk (Naughty but Nice) papers & embelishments that I got from the Creative Craft World sale.
