A new month...

a new challenge!

Hello blogworld

Well I did say you wouldn't see me very much this week and I was right!!  School holidays, eh - they play havoc with my craft time ;-)

On a serious note we've had a very good week so far, with more fun to come for the rest of the week.  We went to SWMbO's best friends' house, with a couple of more friends thrown in for good measure - rather glad the get together wasn't at my house!  We are off swimming today and another friend is due over on Friday.

So to get down to work - today is the first of November so it's time for our second challenge over at Flat Friends and the theme is 'Dots and Stripes' - you can do either dots and / or stripes but remember you do have to use one of Emma's digis.  Though to be honest, how difficult is that, they are super cute!!  The prize is four of Emma's digis - a fab prize I think, especially as new ones have just been released.

Without further waffle - here is card:

I used:
Digi image:
Emma Canning - Flat Friends: Walkies

Cheery Lynn - Fanciful flourish

First Edition - Summer Breeze

Anything else?
Craftwork Cards - card blank and kraft card
3d gloss on her glasses and rose ribbon - from my stuff
flowers and Viva Decor pearl pen - from My Crafty Heart

Oh and I wonder if I've got a rival for making the cards in this house - here is Emily's colouring:

Not bad for a 5 year old!!

See you soon,


A challenge, or two:

I love Promarkers: Challenge 141 - Cute

Fab n Funky: Challenge #145 - Dies / Punches - just dies, hope that's OK?

I received your card today!!! It is so lovely!!! I am one very lucky girl!

I will feature it on a blog post this week. Like you, I am having a crazy week. My husband has me doing a ton of paperwork for him that needs sorted (ugggggh) and I am off to the scrapbook store tomorrow for an open day!
