Card Patterns Sketch 154

Good morning hope everyone is OK!  I'm joining in the sketch challenge over at Card Patterns blog (you may remember a while back I was a Guest Designer for them).  Anyway here is this weeks sketch:-

and here is my card following this sketch:-

I've used an 8x8 card today for this one, only because my black swirl is very large and too big for my normal 6x6 cards.

Thats all from me today, catch up with you all again soon.

Less is More Week 56- Don't scrap it!

Good morning LIMettes and of course Chrissie and Mandi!  Well here I am bright and early on a Saturday morning.  I've not blogged at all this week so am itching to get cracking with this week's challenge over at Less is More which is

"This week we have a simple recipe for you to follow which is to use some of those left over bits and pieces we all tend to keep so this week"
Don't Scrap it!
Well I don't know about you but I've got an expanding file stuffed to the brim just like Chrissie's - I think us crafters just can't throw anything away that "we might just need one day".  I made this card the other day using up my scraps that I've been harbouring for an age, and its perfect for this weeks challenge!  So here is my offering for this week's challenge:-

The thin strip of blue paper at the bottom of the card was a piece of scrap left over from me cutting into a piece for another card - yep I save the smallest bits of paper!  The other elements on this card were in another pile that I've got from when I last got together with my crafty friends and we had a Cricut day and I had these bits sitting in a bag (along with loads of other bits and bobs!)  I've really wanted to use that chandelier for ages on a card so glad I've finally used it!

A plastic bag that has got loads of bits and bobs I've collected over time which are either die cuts or Cricut cuts!
 My very unorganised overflowing expanding file with my paper scraps!
So I will be over later and over the weekend to see what everyone else has created for this challenge.  Its great to be back in the land of blogging........!!!

Until then...

My 2nd Blogaversary!!!

Saturday 18th Feb was my 2nd Blogaversary!  I had planned a scheduled post (as I was away at the wekend) but Mr Blogger didn't play ball - so annoying when that happens!  So I'm posting it myself today!

Wow time has flown by so quickly...  I want to say a heartfelt BIG thank you to not only all my 90 followers but also to the people who leave comments on my blog - I really appreciate each and every one.  I'm planning to be in blogsville for more years to come yet - its so much fun!

Thought I would post up a few of my fave cards from the last 12 months:-

You still with me....?? Well done!  Hope that you enjoyed the look back at some of my cards as much as I did.

Until next time...

My Valentine

Are you all feeling romantic... did you get any cards today..... I've had a gorgeous one from my hubby which he left downstairs today before he went to work so that I was able to open it with my morning cuppa - how thoughtful eh!!

Attached is a photo of the card that I've made for my hubby (shhh he hasn't seen it yet!!) - I'll give it to him when he is home from work - along with a lovely beef and ale casserole which I'm just about to go and start cooking - yummy!
Hope that whatever you are doing today/tonight that the most imporant thing is that you are with the one you love....

Let's sneak this into a few challenges!!!

Until next time...

Less is More Week 53: Colour

Hi everyone, just managing to get my entry into this weeks colour challenge over at Less is More.  This week the colour is

and here is my card:-

 Sorry about the differences of colour between the two photos - not great light at the moment and even though I've edited them in PSE they've not come out the same!!!
Ho hum never mind, because I'm running in by the seat of my pants I've not got time to fiddle and get them to match!! Tut, Tut please forgive me....

Both the flower border and the mirror frame were cut on my Cricut.  Sentiment from Craftwork Cards, crystals from Hobbyhouse.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend and catch up with you later..... until then

Less is More week 52 - Sketch

Hi LIMettes thought I would join in the fun this week over at Less is More.  This week Chrissie and Mandi have a sketch for us:-
 and a few simple rules:-

We would like the card to be
  • rectangular
  • in landscape orientation
  • with the band remaining in a vertical position 
As it's a very simple sketch,  we would like it to remain as is without any rotation of either the card or the vertical band.

So here is my card for this week:-

A special mention to Chrissie and Mandi as its a year since they started up LIM - well done ladies we all so very much enjoy your challenges and just love the Less is More genre and appreciate all the hard work it takes on both your parts to run this challenge - you are so very much appreciated......

 So will be over to comment on some of your creations and I know already that they will all be fabulous!

Until next time...
