Hope you've all had a good week.
Well it's Friday again and that means another Craft Punked Challenge.
This week the theme is Halloween
I made my card using an image from Digistamp Boutique and some digi papers from Summertime Designs.
Good luck with your entries and I look forward to seeing your cards.

I'm back blogging again this week after another long absence due to mojo going awol and it's thanks to Steph from the Craftpunked Challenge blog who has asked me to be on the Craftpunked DT!
I was so thrilled to be asked and have made my first DT card this weeks challenge - 'Deepest Sympathy'
Sorry about the pic, it's a bit grey here today so couldn't get a good one.
I've used a 6 x 6 card blank
Papers are a download from sassydesigns
I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, ribbon is from stash and the sentiment was done on the computer.
Thanks for looking

I did manage this card today, even though it took me three attempts to colour it as my hand wouldn't stop shaking! lol.

Hope to show you some of my cards later, but am so tired I can see me having a nap first, lol. I had to get up early this morning to get Demi bathed and dressed ready for school and make a packed lunch all before 8.30. You could tell I haven't done it in a while and I forgot how long it takes to brush a little girls hair! My daughter is 27 this year, so it's been a while! lol. We made it in time though and she is already talking about what we will do on her next visit. : )
Thanks for stopping by
Luv Michele xx
p.s. just added another pic of some of Demi's cards and a kite she made for my hubby Kevin x

This is a card I made for my God-daughter, Demi who started school in September. She was so excited about starting school, getting a uniform and making lots of new friends, so when I saw this cute little image of Ava, I just had to make her a card to wish her luck on her first day : )

I've been beavering away this week making cards, so hopefully I'll have something to show you later. In the meantime, I'm going on a little blog hop to catch up on what everyone has been doing and hopefully gain some much needed inspiration : )

I have a few cards to show you today, which are birthday cards I have made recently for family and friends.
This first one as you can see, is for my brother, who loves his garden, so I thought this image suited him rather well. It is from digistampboutique, which is a site I am using more and more recently. I really love their images and still have lots to use.
This card is for a friend, who actually picked the papers she wanted for her card, cos she loved the colours so much! This is using the gorgeous 'Madelyn' stamp from The Greeting Farm. I had a lot of trouble sticking that bow on I can tell you!

So far, I've made this Funky Munky card, which is on the 'Paper Boutique' CD rom from Polkadoodles.
It was such a fun card to make. It's for Kevin's Godson, William, who is coming up to his 2nd birthday.
Thank you for looking.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

I made this card for my Son to give his Girlfriend for her 18th Birthday and although I don't normally get much reaction from my Son about my cards, he absolutely loved this and so did his Girlfriend!
I don't normally do a lot of cutting out n stuff, I'm normally a stamper with an iddy bit of paper piecing now and then, but really enjoyed putting this card together, although I did run out of Glamour dust and had to have sparkly icing on every other layer instead of every layer, but I think it looks Ok for my first one!
Thank you for looking

It doesn't look that great outside today, gone really dark and gloomy and the wind is picking up a bit now aswell, so it doesn't look like I'll be going anywhere real soon. And anyway, it's been sooo long since I blogged I thought I would use this time on my own to upload a few pics of some of the cards I have made recently - the ones I remembered to photograph anyway!
This first one is a card I made for my daughter to give a friend at work. I really love this image and haven't used it much since I bought it, but am really pleased with how it turned out.
IMAGE: 'Primp' by Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers.
PAPERS: Kay & Co
I love this image, it's so cute. This is a card for my cousin's daughter who will be 6 tomorrow.
IMAGE: DigiStamp Boutique 'Fifi with present' coloured with promarkers
PAPERS: from scraps
love the colours on this card, which was made for Kozmik, a friend on DC.
I noticed when I took the pic that I had gone over the line slightly with my colouring, so obviously wasn't wearing my glasses, but apart from that, I really like this one.
PAPERS: Basic Grey Nook & Pantry
FLOWERS AND RIBBON: from stash
I have 5 cards to make before Friday, so am going to make a start on those today.
Thank you for looking.

I have been busy lately making and sending out my Christmas cards and yesterday I posted this one and realised I hadn't uploaded it onto my blog or my DC gallery. It's the first (and only so far) Easel card I've made and I really enjoyed making it and will definitely be doing more of them
They are so easy to make and I think they look great.

Have a great weekend all
Tuesday, 1 December 2009
I don't think I have mentioned it on here before, but a month after my lovely Dad passed away in August, hubby and I did a sponsored climb of Mount Snowdon to raise money for the cancer unit where my Dad was treated. It was very tough, especially as it rained on us the whole time and my legs wanted to give up more than once! but it was also a very emotional moment when we finally reached the top. This week, we received the last of our sponsorship money in and were amazed and over the moon to discover we had raised £630.00!! We are so chuffed and I know my Dad would be too as he knew we were planning to do the climb, so HUGE thanks to everyone who supported us, we couldn't have done it without you all. My biggest thanks go to my hubby Kevin, cos without his encouragement and massaging my legs to keep them going I don't think I would've made it up there!
I have managed to do some crafting this week, despite having conjunctivitis and a bad back, both of which are thankfully a lot better now and I have have entered this card in the Sketch Saturday Challenge.
I really love this image by Wendy at Digital Doodling, called 'Mrs Tilly Claus'. I have paper pieced her outfit and I'm not sure it works, but have given her white ear muffs instead of colouring in all her hair the same colour. (let me know what you think!)
Papers and ribbon are from stash and the sentiment is from Personal Impressions 'tis the season'.
take care all

I'll see if I get time later to upload some cards I've made this week, but for now I have to get back to my cards and finish them before they are collected.
Hope you all have a great weekend.

The image I have used is 'hearts away'
Papers are Basic Grey Nook and Pantry
I die cut the musical notes on my quickutz and the flowers and charm are from my stash, oh and I used my Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch and Frond punch.
That's about it! Short and sweet.
Hope you like it and have a great weekend.

Hi, I'm sat here with the heating right up today! It is soooo cold out there, like to be nice and cosy in here. Have been making a few cards today, but thought I would show you this one first that I have made for the Colour Create Challenge this week. The theme is Blue, White and Silver which I really enjoyed, I think the colours go really well together.
The papers are from Papermania 'Christmas Blue' and the image, which I have mounted onto blue card, is one I have had for ages (since last year I think!) but unfortunately, I don't know the name of it, also I've hung a little jingle bell from the bow for my touch of silver.
Hope you like it,

I've made this card for the Forever Friends Challenge, which was a sketch this week. I haven't entered this challenge for ages, so thought it was about time i did. I have paper-pieced the entire image, including the bear, so no colouring this time, but I think it turned out ok.

Well I don't suppose I'm the only one, but I have suffered the dreaded flu this week. I have been surrounded by piles of tissues and stinking of vic, sneezing and coughing for what feels like the whole week long! I dosed myself up on Day and Night Nurse to get through the worst of it, but even then I didn't sleep very well. Why is it though, that even if you think you are feeling better during the day, you always feel worse at night??
I found another couple of cards that I hadn't uploaded yet:
This first one is a birthday card for my neice, Ashling, who will be 5 next month. I have bought quite a few of the 'Anya' stamps recently and I used 'Birthday Anya' for Ashlings card. I really love these images and i'm sure they will get a lot of use.
This next card is one I made for a lady called Linda on the Docrafts site for National Cardmaking Day.
I really like the colours of the papers on this one, which came from 'The Big One' in the Claire Curd Signature Range.
I also paper pieced the dress on the image so that it all co-ordinated and cut the flowers from another sheet of the same paper.
Thank you for looking.

I have a couple more cards to show you, these are cards I have made for my Daughter's boyfriends family.
This first one is totally different from anything I've done before, and was for his Mum who loves anything floral and for this card I actually cut into my Anna Griffin papers (shock horror!) I really loved it when i had finished and more importantly so did his Mum.
I had never heard of 'Roary' when I was asked to do this card for little Mason, but I really enjoyed making it and once i'd seen the picture, the card came together really well.

This first on was for my Daughter's boyfriend. His Mum saves all the cards I make for their family, which is lovely.
This one was for my cousin's daughter, Maddie.

As you may know, if you are a follower of my blog, I haven't posted on here for a few months now. This is because my lovely Dad was very ill and I was in Cornwall most of the time helping to care for him.
Sadly, Dad passed away on the 5th of August, the day after his birthday. I still find it incredibly hard to talk about, so will keep this short, but hopefully I'll be back blogging soon and will upload the card I made recently too.
Hope everyone is well, I will be blog-hopping later to check out all your lovely blogs and see what I have missed and the lovely new things I have to buy.
