Hi, I'm a mother of two boys(age 7 & 3), married to my ever tolerant OH Ian. I work part-time and have little chance to craft hence I've created this blog to post my challenge entries. My hope is that practice makes perfect!
Hi there, My mojo has completely disappeared so I'm having a go at some challenges again to see if I can find it. First up is Funky fairys challenge which is to use the free halloween papers they are giving away, you can find the link on thier blog. I've made another of the diaper treat pouches as they are so quick and easy. I stamped the image onto silver mirri card using stazon which gives an interesting semi transluscent effect although it doesn't really show on the photo. Mind you took a while to dry lol.

Hi there, Another week gone by and I couldn't resist the Penny Black Saturday challenge which is to make anything except a card. This treat pouch immediately sprang to mind. I've seen them on lots of blogs but I followed the directions on splitcoast stampers for the diaperfold pouch.

Another challenge this time PBSC - sketch 2. Still in the mood for christmas cards so used this image of "snowy". It is lightly coloured with shimmer chalks, I'm finding chalks are really versatile i love them, then double mounted. There is a glittery strip behind the punched border but it doesn't show to well in the photo.
Watched a video on youtube yesterday by chicnscratch on how to make popsicle cards( not her invention, she says she sees them all over so don't know who made the first one) and then came across the DCM challenge Scrumdiddlyumptious which said
" All things foodie - feature a food you associate with summer and sunny days (just to remind us of those summer feelings)"
Well I just had to make a popsicle card, one of those blue ice lollies that kids love so much but mums hate because everything goes blue!! Did a little joke twist though (so may be disqualified) as what else do most crafters associate with summer ?? .... Christmas cards of course! I decorated my ice lolly with a snowflake and a seasonal greeting just for a laugh, this is my very first christmas card of the year and I may even send it just to confuse someone lol!!

Ribbon a selection at hobbycraft ( can't you tell that whenever I go to this shop I always buy ribbon)
Jokes aside I think these would make fun invites for summer picnics or childrens parties don't you?
well amazingly enough I finally found time to craft just for me and am entering this for the Cute Card Thursday challenge which was to use two people, two animals or one of each! This stamp seemed appropriate although don't ask me the name (its obviously a penny black) as I recieved this image in a swap. The background paper is also annonymous as I got this as a PIF gift. I can tell you however that the ribbon is K&Co but thats about it lol.
I have many peeloffs that I never use, some bought and some free gifts or part of goodie bags, so I have finally started to use some. I didn't think these corners looked to bad. Finally my apologies for the attempt at a "distressed ink look" around the edge of the card. Always looks fab on other folks blogs but can't quite get the hang of it
Oh and no I wasn't drunk when I took this photo even though its really squiffy . I even used my mini tripod and a flat surface, honest I have no idea what happened lol !!
