Hi all,
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.

Challenge card


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

Snoozing chap

No new card today, but another one I found from a couple of months ago that I thought you might like to see.

The image is a download from Digistamp Boutique called snoozing chap and was coloured with promarkers. I think the papers are from K & Co, but can't remember what the set is called.  I think it's a great image for a man's card though.
Thank you for looking, luv Michele xx

Skater Boy

Evening all : )  Sorry I haven't been around for a few days, been so busy and not had much time to craft.
I did manage this card today, even though it took me three attempts to colour it as my hand wouldn't stop shaking! lol.

I am entering the card into a few challenges:

totallygorjusschallenge - Boys and their toys
stamptacularsundaychallenge - loaded with layers
EmergencyCrafterschallenge - Bold and bright
Sketchandstashchallenge - Doreen's sketch 86 with new/neglected stash on your card too.

I have used both new and neglected stash on my card.  The image is something I've had for ages, but have never used before and I have used my lovely new My Minds Eye papers for the background and the layers.
Thank you for looking and hope you have a lovely weekend : )

Luv Michele xx

Crafty Weekend

Hello, hope you all enjoyed your weekend. It was a very enjoyable, but tiring one for me as I had my 5yr old god-daughter, Demi to stay for the weekend.  She loves to craft and has her own craft box here for when she stays and boy did we craft!

She loves stickers and colouring in and we did lots of both.  I stamped some cupcake images for her to colour and she had great fun. Yes, that is one of my flexmarkers she is using ( i must be mad!) lol, but she's very good and understands you have to be gentle with them and none ruined so far, so it's all good.
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

Plain and Simple

Me again! Two posts in one day. There's no stopping me is there, lol
I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has left comments on my cards recently, they are much appreciated : )

This is a card I am entering into the Emergency Crafters Challenge  The theme this week is 'Plain and Simple'
I found this one quite difficult as I'm used to putting layers of papers and embellishments on my cards, so this is as simple as I could get it.

Thank you for looking

A couple of 1st Birthday cards

Afternoon all.  It looked so lovely and sunny out today, but when I went to put the washing out it was freezing, so not much chance of anything drying.  Fooled again! lol.  Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I didn't do as much crafting as I wanted and haven't had a chance play with my new goodies yet, but I have dug out another couple of cards to show you.
The first one was for my son's now ex-girlfriends nephew, I love this image and found the papers in a hot of the press book and thought they went really well.  It's a shame the photo isn't very good (again) lol, I really must learn to take better pics.

This next one is another first birthday card, this time for a relation of my daughter's fiance.  Again, I used papers from the Hot off the press baby papers book and am really pleased with the result.  The image is from Digistamp Boutique, which is a favourite of mine.  Once again, apologies for the pic.

Thank you for looking,
Luv Michele xx

Ally Pally

I had a lovely time yesterday visiting the craft show at Ally Pally, even though it was a really short visit............I was only there for an hour and a half and I ran out of money! lol.  I think I was a bit too organised to be honest.  I had a list of things I needed and wanted and was like a woman on a mission as soon as I stepped through the door, lol.  I wished I'd looked around for a bit and had a mooch, but hey ho, i got everything on my list and a little bit more so I was happy.

I look forward to having a play with everything this afternoon, as I have the house to myself and can craft 'til I sleep, lol
Enjoy your Sunday, hopefully I'll have something to show you later.

Take care
luv Michele xx

Off to School Ava

Evening all. Time to show you one of the cards I've made over the last few months whilst I;ve been away from blogland.
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 : )

She loved the card and even thought it looked a bit like her. 
The image is by Digistamp Boutique and is coloured with Promarkers.  The letters for Demi were cut on my cricut and the rest is from my crafty stash.

Thanks for looking,
luv Michele xx

Oh I've missed it!

I'm so annoyed with myself right now.  I was going to enter this card into the Emergency Crafters Challenge this week but I've just seen that I've missed the deadline.  That just about sums up how things are going at the moment, lol.  Anyway, I hope you like it.  It's not a very good pic as the light isn't brilliant, but I think he's really cute : )

I know I promised to show some of the cards I've made recently and I will be doing that later. 

Bye for now and thanks for looking

It's good to be back

Hello!! It's sooooo long since I last blogged what with one thing and another, but hopefully I am back in the land of blogging now. So much has happened and I've been trying to get my health sorted out too, which is still on going, but I have been thinking about my blog more and more and thought it was about time to get back on here!
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 : )

Take care,
Michele xxx
