Good morning blogworld,

So this is my quiet week!  Only this post for the new challenge at Papertake Weekly and any other cards that I manage to squeeze in.

The challenge this week, as you may have guessed, is 'Bingo'.  This is the bingo card from which you can pick any line - across, up, down or diagonal:

I went in a diagonal line and picked Gems, Free, Lace (with my free being the stamped image).

Front shot:

Her close up:

I used:

The Greeting Farm - Twinkle Tots: Madelynn
coloured with my Copics and Distress Ink for the background


BoBunny - Country Garden collection

Anything else?
Lace and gems from my stuff
Craftwork Cards - sentiment

Hope you like,

Fancy hearing a conversation between me and SWMbO from this mornings' school rush?  I found a 20p in a corner in my bedroom so, very generously, gave it to SWMbO and then went downstairs to get shoes, coat, book bag, juice, etc ready to go and shouted for said child to follow me.

Said child then trots downstairs with this 20p in a plastic bowl and said:

'Give me money if you like me'!!!!  

She obviously has a fine career in begging to look forward to!


A challenge, or two:

Sketch N Stash: Challenge 134 - The stamp is very old, I didn't realise how old until I tried to find out what it's called, and this is it's first inking so that's my old stash - the paper pad is very new.

Stampin' for the Weekend: Sparkle and Shine

Crafty Sentiments Designs: Lots of Green

A lovely card with a gorgeous design Sarah... and I did smile at the conversation between you and Emily... Careful if you take her to church... it reminds me of a time my niece went, and was given money for the collection... but when she came out she had more than she went in with!! She thought she should help herself when the collection plate came around!
