I'm off on my holibobs to South of France yet again for 2 weeks and will be back on Monday 13th October. Don't forget to check out Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges and Cute Card Thursday every week! In the meantime I will leave you with this picture of Monaco harbour taken on our holiday last year. Can't wait now!

Cute Card Thursday #29 - Lots of Sparkle

"Lots of Sparkle" is the theme this week from Cute Card Thursday and the DT have produced some really sparkly creations for you to see!

This Magnolia image was sent to me by Annie and I have coloured her with Promarkers and Sakura pens. The background card and sentiment came from a kit and the flowers are Scrap Fairies and Prima. I am still feeling dreadful but things can only get better!

Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges - Something Different!

This week on Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges we would like you to do something different with your ATC. Although Artist Trading Cards are meant to be traded, sometimes we make them for a blog challenge and end up with a pile in a box, so this week we hope to give you some ideas for using them on 'Something Different'. You can choose your own design, just remember to use one of the cute faced stamps such as Magnolia, Hanglar, Cuddly Buddly etc. You can show us before and after pictures or just the finished project, and it would help us a lot if you could include a direct link to your creation on your blog. If you don't have a blog and would like to join in the fun with us please send your pictures to one of the Design Team members to load at the end of this post. The DT have made some wonderful creations so pop on over and have a look!

This is a Spiral Whisper stamp coloured with Promarkers and I have used papers from Designer Digitals and lace from Scrapz. A bit of a quickie this week as I am still not well and had to go to the Dr this morning. Apparently I have an ear and sinus infection which explains why I have been feeling like little imps with hammers had taken up residence in my head!

Embellished Somethings

I had a make a card for a Christening yesterday. Well I think you could say this is well and truly embellished and as this is the theme this week from Stamp Something at least I have something to show you as I haven't produced anything this week that's not for DT work. We go away on Saturday so I need to be in front. Plus I have the MOST stinky cold type bug I've had for a long time so I have no energy. Think I have what Ben had last week. Feeling very sorry for myself and my poor red nose anyway!

I got the central image for this card from Google Images and loads of matting and layering later with the addition of flowers and ribbon from the local florist finished it off! Thanks for looking. I know am a very bad blogging friend just now but I honestly don't have the time or energy. I am here in spirit - honest!
