Some bits & pieces & a challenge


Both cards I made last night & they are for an order off my mum.
The one above is also for Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge
The one below was going to be for Crafty Catz but I am too late so I thought I'd share it with you anyway.
Its the first time I've inked up these cute dog stamps. They are Whipper Snapper stamps & came in my candy from Bev that I won last year.



This picture is the front of my cupcake gift box I made a while ago which Ali very kindly sent me as mine got corrupted or something when loading.
The cupcakes are from Susie's shop Die Cut Dreams & the paper is from my stash.
Don't you think they go well together though?
I hope you all have a good weekend. I am off to catch some Z's as I have a stinking head ache & I want to get on with my knitting!!
Thats reminds me I need to go see if I've got a pattern for Linda...do that next then Z's!!

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 😁
