Sketch Saturday

Hi All,

Well I am well and truely enjoying making things other than cards at the moment. After making the wall hangings I decided to have a go a a few other things, so took a little trip to the stationary shop and got myself some supplies.

Here are the next things I turned my hands to, after being inspired on Donna's blog with her cute little post-it-note holder I thought I would have a go too.

I have followed the sketch over on Sketch Saturday, which was quite an easy one this and being as I was working on a small scale fitted perfectly.

something different

Something different is the challenge over a papertake weekly this week. Now I am feeling better I was going to make my 2 bestest friends thank you cards for the help and support they gave me whilst I was ill and recovering. Then I saw this challenge and whilst looking through my craft cupboard for something else last night I found a chipboard album, as they say I then had a light bulb moment. I decided to make my friends a little wall hanger each, just to tell them how much I appreciate them, and heres what I came up with.

I really enjoyed making these, and they feel a bit more special knowing that they will be a keepsake rather than just a card. I can already feel another one coming on especially as Abbie has spotted them and now wants one for her room.

I am also going to enter these hangings into the following new (new to me!!) challenges I have found today.

Cupcake Craft Challenge - No Squares Allowed

One Stitch at a time challenge - Flowers.

Lilli of the Valley

I have managed to have another little crafty session this week, and being as I now own a 2 digit number of LOTV stamps !!!! I thought it about time I entered one of their challenges. This fotrnight there is a fab sketch by the lovely Bev to follow.

I love this little stamp, and have coloured her to look like my little Abbie who I know given the chance would be seen sitting like this.

Shopping day

Hi All,

Well I have had a fabulous day today, I am finally more or less back on my feet now after my op. I have been feeling a bit down with everything so my friend decided I needed a girly shopping day out. We started off with Breakfast at Maccy's (pancakes & syrup) yum!!! then off for a bit of shopping with lots of time in the changing rooms, then a bit of lunch followed by lots more shopping. We then came home collected kids from school, got hubby and went off to the cinema to watch Nanny McPhee. I am well and truely shattered but feel sooooo much better.

Anyway thought I pop on a couple more of the cards I made the other day. This first one is for the Totally Gorjuss challenge which this week is ..... Charming..... and I thought rather than do just one I would add a couple, so I got out my pliers, some chain, jump rings and a few charms and this is what I came up with on my card. I also used a totally gorjuss little Tilda image on it as well.

This second card is made following the sketch over on Friday Sketchers. I made the card for my friends son who's birthday is tomorrow. He is the same age as my son, and loves his game console. I picked up the fabby papers from the Range a few days ago and knew exactlly how I wanted his card to turn out, as I knew I had this LOTV stamp. But when I got it out I realised that the pic on the TV was a car game, so I cut out around the inside of the screen and replaced with some of the Space Invader backing paper. Although the images on the paper were too big, so I scanned them and printed it off 50% smaller.

M.I.A !!!

Hi all,
Just thought I would pop a quick post on here to expain my lack of posts. I was having a fabulous time playing with all my new crafty goodies from the show making some lovely cards and finally getting back into the swing of things when .......... I collapsed in tremendous pain and was rushed into hosptial. They orignally sent me home with some strong Painkillers & Antibiotics saying I had a Water Infection in my Kidneys. The tablets did not help one little bit and 2 days and a lot more pain later I collasped again and hubby rushed me back in. Turns out I needed my Appendix out !!!! I tell you I have never ever known pain like it in all my life. I finally came out of hospital on Fri, but have been too drugged up and sleeply to do anything. Finally today I feel a bit better and have managed to be able to leave my bed. I also have to got back to the hospital for an ultrasound on my abdomen as blood tests taken after the op still show something is wrong. So thats it for me for a couple of weeks, apparently it takes 4 - 6 weeks to recover so I will be taking it easy and hopefully when I can manage to sit up for a while longer maybe even get some crafting done.

Hope you are all well.

Lyndsey xx
