This card is for a challenge blog I found through Dawns blog. Theyare called Papermakeupstamps and have a new challenge every Monday and this monday it is a fabby sketch. I used the sketch to make my sisters birthday card off Oli & Abbie. I am not sure if you have to use only their stamps on this challenge as I couldnt see it anywhere on the blog, so I have linked it anyway.

The gorgeously cute image is one of the very talented Sally Ann designs, the papers are the new Kate Knight collection from trimcraft, Prima flowers & Papermania flower gems.

Cards for Nan.

We have had some very sad news in the family this week, my sisters MIL sadly passed away so quickly from cancer. She has only been diganosed the week before and it was a complete shock. The children have asked me if I could make them cards, so that they can write their nan a message to send with her. These are the cards I came up with I have followed the sketch from Mojo Monday for the one and have decided to put them in the CCT challenge which is Family Affair. The reason that only 2 cards have nan on them is that only 2 of the children are my sisters partners, but my niece also wanted to send her a little card as well.

Papertake Weekly for Abbie and some good news!!

There is a fab sketch over on Papertake Weekly this week done by the lovely Dawny P, I took the opportunity to use it to make Abbie's birthday card off Oli. I can't believe that this time next week my little princess will be 3, it still seems like yesterday that she was in BCH having her op with her life hanging in the balance. I cannot believe how far we have come since those terrible days. Anyway I have used some fabby new papers from the DCWV spring glitter stack which are DB sided and are just delish, a really cute Hanglar image which I think looks just like her, and finished off with 3 little primas and some gem stones.

Well we were at the hospital yesterday for our bi monthly check up for Abbie, and it was good news again. The anitbiotics that she has been on for the last couple of weeks seem to have done the job and her chest was clear yay!!!. Their is slight concern over her weight & height as she hasnt really put much on or grown much since the last time, but not so much that we really need to be concerned over. We have to try to get her to eat a bit more, and also try and cram as much high cal stuff into her as poss. (If you dont know people with CF cannot digest & break down their food and so they have to have these granuals to help them and they also have to eat very high fat & high cal food as even with these granuals (creon) they still dont take enough cals in. They basically have to have double the amount a normal person would just to try and keep their weight stable). They also told us about some new developments on her physio, they are now trying out a new and very fun way of doing it. We are going to be given one of those huge exercise balls and Abbie will have to have her physio on that, as well as doing other exercises with it to help get her lungs working hard. Well they had one in the hospital and she loved it, her physio had her on the ball showing us all the different things and she just had a great time. They also took piccys of her on the ball which are going to be used on a poster and newsletter to promote it all, and she really gave them some fab poses she just loves having her piccy taken.

Birthday Boy

I made this card for my nephew off Oli & Abbie. I am not 100% on it as I let Oli choose the image and papers so I think its a bit bright, however my nephew will only be 9 so I think he will probably like it. I made the card following the fab sketch over on Sketch Saturday.

The image is a fab Penny Black stamp coloured in with PM's, the papers are Basic Grey Cupcake, and Papermania eyelets set with the Big Bite. The oval sentiment is Craftwork Cards.

Flowers for you

Well hasn't the weather been gorgeous today, I promised Oli that I would take him over the park on the BMX track after school today. Should have kept my mouth shut, been as Rich was at home he suggested I take my bike (rearly used) and have a ride with him, whilst he pushed Abbie on her trike. Lets just say my legs now feel like jelly and I need a padded cushion to sit on lol!!!!!
Anyway this is the card I have made for my little brother to give his mum (my stepmum). I followed the sketch over on the Penny Black challenge blog and used this fabby stamp called Guess What!

The image is Penny Black, papers are Basic Grey porcelain, Prima flowers, Papermania pearl brads and circle cut out with a Sizzix die on my Big Shot and then I used my Cropodile to punch the holes all the way round.

In the peach

I have had a lovely day of shopping today, not!!!! . Whilst my mum looked after Abbie we went birthday shopping for her, armed with a list made up from Abbie from Argos & the ELC catalogues. She has gone made for a pink DS and one of those my little sister Rosie dolls. Well do you think they had her anywhere no!, we checked out all the Argos's and any other toy shops we could think of but they were all out of stock. Luckily my mum called and told me that Abbie had been showing her the dolls in the Argos book and she now wanted the Roxy doll and not the Rosie, a quick check at Argos showed they had one in stock so off we dashed. Managed to get most of other stuff she wanted quite easily so it turned out ok in the end. We then decided to go to a pub for lunch before we picked her up which was nice.
Anyway onto my card, there is yet another fab sketch over on Sketch Saturday this week. I decided to use one of my fave Sugar Nellie stamps and make her peachy.

The image is Sweet & Sassy, papers are Basic Grey porcelain, fancy edge was done with a Fiskars lace border punch, prima hydrangers & paper roses from the range.

For my Grandma

I am finally back in the land of crafting, my mojo has returned an I have had a fab evening of crafting. Tonight is the first time I had done any crafting since last thursday, my poor little lamb is poorly again. She has a nasty cough and cold and is back on the anitbiotics, she has been very clingy hence the reason for my lack of crafting. It is such a shame for her, her chest is really rattling this time and I am really hopeing the meds work else it will be a hospital jobby. She is safe and sound and tucked up in bed over nanny & grandads tonight as both me and Rich are at work tomorrow. So I have had a lovely time crafting and I have made this card following the sketch over at Friday Sketchers, I have had an order for 6 mothers day cards today so have been getting stuck into them and this is one of them.

Dont you just love my gorgeous Tilda image, I received 2 fabby Tilda stamps from a friend the other week and this is the first time I have had chance to ink them up. The papers are Picnic Patch from the D&D collection from Docrafts, the flowers are Prima the sentiments are from Craftwork Cards and the little gems are Papermania.

An award & a couple of pics

No card from me today, can you believe I havent done any crafting at all for 3 days!!!!. Must get back and get cracking have a few cards that need making but just done feel the vibes.

Firstly I have been given this award off some of my fabby blogging buddies, which was really kind of them to think of me so thanks girls.

Secondly I thought I would show you a couple of pics of my gorgeous Abbie. They were taken on Friday (rednose day). In the top picture she is seen in her HSM costume, she really loves these films and has the CD's as well. She was dancing around shaking her pom poms, she looked really cute and was making us laugh so much with her little routines after which she would hold the pom poms up in the air and go TA DAAA!!!!!!.

The other pics are of her in her PJ's dancing around with her red nose on. She has only got a little nose and it kept falling off, she was getting so angry with it and was walking round with her nose constanly pointing upwards.

There are no pics of Oli as he is too cool to have his pic taken with a red nose on!!!. He did however dye his hair red for school.

A rose for you

I have been going mad lately colouring loads of images with my Promarkers, I think I am slowly getting better. So I thought its about time I started to use some of them up. This gorgeous Tilda image was given to me in a RAK from a blogging buddy and it is one of my favorites. I also managed to get my hands on the new Dandelion & Daisy paper pack which has got some lovely pastel pattern papers. So I made this card following the fab sketch over on Sketch Saturday.

Image Tilda with rose from Magnolia, papers are Picnic Patch from Docrafts, DCVW cardstock, Craftwork Cards Sentiment, paper roses from the Range and lace from my shop.

I am driving in my car !!!

I love Forever Friends, but never quite seem to manage to make a card for any of their challenges. So tonight whilst routing through my stuff to find something suitable for a male card (my cousin's birthday on thurs) I came across this fab FF Decoupage that I had made up previously and not used. So I made the card following the Sketch over on the FF Challenge blog.
I basically kept to the sketch and kept the card nice and simple, which is what I think you need to do on male cards.

The papers are My Minds Eye, which I noticed that when I had cut the circles out of the dotty paper they are traffic light colours. I couldnt have done that better if I had tried. The sentiment is from Craftwork cards.

Better late than never!!

I originally made this card following the sketch over at Mojo Monday, however I have had a major problem with my internet connection for the last 4 days and have not been able to get online. The sketch has now changed over at Mojo Monday so this card is basically null and void. Been as it took me ages to make, and I wanted to show you this fab Tilda image sent to me by a blogging buddy, which I coloured in first then had a right game trying to match papers up with it, I thought I might as well post it anyway.

Image is Tilda with Sunflower coloured in with PM's, papers are Basic Grey 2 scoops, Papermania pearl gems, computer generated sentiment and ribbon from stash.

I would also like to say that because of my connection problems I am now having to play catch up looking at all your lovely creations over the last couple of days, so if I havent left you any comments its because I havent managed to get round to your blog yet but I am slowly getting there.
