Start as I mean to go on with Challenges!!



Well I have started one of my New Year's resultions - to join in some more challenges!!

Over at Moving Along with the Times it is an open theme & to use a past sketch.
I have used Hazels sketch from challenge #22
They have 3 fab prizes on offer so do please pop along & play!

I am also entering this into Susie's Sassy Challenge which is a theme of "Friends old & new"
Susie's prize is a GDT spot so pop along & join in the fun there too!

I have had to sneakly photo this card as it is for my hubby's birthday on Monday.
We don't usually do cards because he doesn't usually bother but I was inspired to make this one with the challenges.

Can you see the 2nd photo has an extra bit of another pic at the bottom? For some reason my pictures aren't loading onto my laptop properly. I've had the camera & memory card for ages so don't know why its suddenly being silly!!
If anyone has any thoughts please let me know ..thankyou x

Where the heck have you been? I hear you cry! Well I am busy working full time on my job (being a mummy) & part time on my fortune!
This is my full time job! He's called Murphy & is now two years old.
Why have I not been crafting? Well I am making some small short term sacrifices for a very huge fantastic long term goal......making memories with this little dude! The time I would have been using to craft I am building a successful international business! This business opportunity is open to anyone & can change your life in ways you never dreamed possible all you have to do is put some work in.
Would you be interested in  supplementing your income,  working from home around current commitments,  how would an extra £200-500 per month help you? What about £800-2000 per month?

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁




Christmas Crafting, thank you cards & more.....

Today I decided to have a little bit of craft time. I have been wanting to make a count down to christmas for ages after I made one a couple years back. I have used Lili of the Valley stamp, SU papers, Crafty Sentiments tag die for numbers & coloured the bear with watercolours.


Last week I also made these sweet yet simple christmas cards ready...aren't I organised!!! Again its a LOTV stamp coloured with watercolours. The sentiment is SU & I added some pearls to finish them off.

It was my father in law's 70th yesterday so I used the old dude from Make it Crafty's flirty seniors digi stamp & coloured it with promarkers. The doggy is a daisy & dandelion stamp & is for a friend's birthday. I coloured it with watercolours.

I figure I may need a few thank you cards so I've made some using my 12x12 Pepper & Friends papers. There's these simple ones & then some more fancy bigger ones.

Then there's special ones. I have made the decoupage…
