I won!

Hi everyone, I've been meaning to update my blog for the last couple of days, but have been busy making birthday cards to order and haven't had much time. I did get a fab piece of news when I checked the Colour Create blog though and found I was one of 5 winners for the Blue Silver and White challenge! It really made my day! I've never won anything before.
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.

'Love is in the air'

Afternoon all, I really enjoyed this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge The theme this week is Song Title/Lyrics, and I had just the right PB image to fit the bill, as soon as I saw it, the song title came to me straight away. Love the colours on this one too.

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.

Blue, Silver and White - Colour Create Challenge

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,
Michele xx

Forever Friends Challenge

Afternoon everyone, what a difference from yesterday! It's so wet and windy here I've decided to stay in and craft (and do some work in between of course!)

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.

Just noticed the sun has come out, so maybe a nice afternoon in store after all.
Thank you for looking

Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Hello, hope everyone is well. It's a lovely day here after the miserable, wet weekend we had. Nothing like a bit of sun to make you feel good. It's hard to believe it's November!

I still can't believe it, but I've actually done a challenge this week! It's months since I have done a challenge, but after seeing all the lovely 'White on White' cards for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge I thought I must have a go.

It's not the best picture, but I hope you like it, I just have to remember how to get the link to the Penny Black blog now! Wish me luck!
