2 cards

Well I managed the 2 anniversary cards today that I had to make, with the use of a stamp borrowed from my mum which I think lends itself to anniversary cards so well.

Might be able to make a couple of ATC's later tonight, but that will be it for a few days and I am at work for the next 4 days, so no crafting or blogging for me. How will I cope????

Yet another card

Today its yet another card, had to do a baby girl card so used a penny black stamp which I have just acquired. Am pleased with the way it has turned out. Managed to use the cuttlebug as well on this one. Now have to make 2 wedding anniversary cards, so will probably use images from the Joanna Sheen CD dancing with shadows for those. No time to make them today, as I'm back to work tonight.

I received in the post this morning my Challenge Book back completed. This was from the Crafts4u forum, I make the book and post it off and it comes back to me with 7 ATC's in it to the theme that I had chosen (Time), and I just love it.

Wednesday again

So its time for Tilda and Friends ATC challenge. This week the challenge is Going Dotty, and dotty is what I've gone. Have used one of my new Magnolias which arrived this morning and doesn't she look good. Have got a serious addiction to these little stamps now.

I got the Tilda with a cross and the church this morning as well and I have to make a couple of first holy communion cards, so I'm hoping that I might be able to use them. Will have a play later and see how they come out.

Another card

Another card again today, this time a wedding card was needed with a picture of the venue on it.
Still think that I need to add something else, but not quite sure what yet, I'll think on it.

Went out and got some more polychromo pencils today, so slowly adding to the collection, todays were green and blue, so might be able to do some more shading on those little ole magnolia stamps now. Still waiting for the new ones to arrive, so hopefully tomorrow in time for the Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge.

A card at last

So at last, I have managed to make a card. Had to make one for a 13 year old, and of course there were my Magnolias shouting at me to use them. Went for blue to go along with the challenge on Tilda and Co, which was this week Girly but blue. Think I have managed this one successfully.

Also managed to make 2 ATC's for a swap i'm in over on the crafts 4 u forum, depicting months of the year, they get harder each month, and we are only up to July. Have to start thinking of what to do for August now.

wet and windy

Well thats what the weathers like today as well as this weeks challenge on Tilda and friends ATC Challenge blog.
I struggled with this one as I don't possess any of the Windy stamps and this is the only one I could think of using so here he is.

Sorry about the state of the scan, but the fish charm makes it hard to scan properly, and my camera skills in this light are not brilliant either. So good to get back into these little things again.

Ended up ordering another 6 magnolia stamps yesterday, so hopefully I will be able to play with some new ones on Monday.

Just the one today

Just the one to show tonight.I really do like the paper artsy stamps . so have made this one and just added the word fly. A simple one, but thats the mood I'm in, but glad that I have managed to make one.

Have been thinking about the Tilda and Friends ATC challenge for this week, so might have one to show for tomorrow.

Think that I might have just kicked this chest infection now, but not going to go mad just yet, but am feeling so much better, just have to wait and see have many times I wake up tonight, at least that might be an indication of me getting better at last.

Never did get around to doing the Tilda and Friends ATC Challenge this week, new one out tomorrow so hope to get that one done, still struggling to craft but am determined to do some, just need to get rid of this dreaded cough, well at least its not as bad as it was last week.

This is an older ATC made for an Alphabet swap , wonder what letter it was?????

Just a quick note

Nothing to show tonight, but there will be tomorrow,have been under the weather for a few days and any get up and go, and got up and gone and left me totally shattered and literally unable to do anything. Have made a couple of ATC's tonight and a third one is on the table to be completed tomorrow as my head has had enough of it tonight.

Only quick one today

Only a quick post today as off to work tonight so have to go and get ready in a minute.

Made the 3 ATC's for the alpahabet swap I'm in today and I will show you my W as I think she is so cute. Never got time to do the 3 atc's for the challenge books but they are on my list of things to do on thursday and will be back in the post before the weekend. Thats all from me today, but will be blog hopping at work, but unfortunately can't leave comments on blogs as work access doesn't allow this.

only one today

Have only got the one new ATC to show today, still not too well but at least I am getting some things done.

This has been made with the Magnolia stamp which I was lucky to win over on the Tilda and Friends ATC challenge blog.

Have made some faces today using air drying clay, so hopefully they can be painted tomorrow and made into some masterpieces (stop laughing).

Also received 3 atc challenge books in the post this morning for the swap on Crafts 4 u forum, so off to make a vintage, an oriental and butterfly ATC's now and hoefully get the books posted onto the next person on the list tomorrow

No craft (again)

Been at work for two days so no craft objects to show today, but I have just coloured in my new Tilda, so tomorrow she will be made into an ATC. Know what I'm going to do, but just too tired to do it tonight.

Well the Radley bag card went down very well with the person that wanted it, so am very happy with that news.

Thats all my news for today, but I will be back tomorrow

Only a card today

Still not well, and so much to do and no energy to do it.
Have managed a card today, not sure of it though. Remit was for a 70 year old who has just bought a Radley bag, and this was all I could think of

Hope that it is ok anyway. If not still got time to do another one.( sorry about the crooked scan)

Received my Dala Tilda stamp today from Leann, along with a mixed bag of brown and pink ribbons and her in the pink atc which is on the Tilda and friends ATC Challenge blog. Boy am I a happy bunny, just want to go and play now

Another Tilda Day

So here we are again, Still not feeling too good, but have managed to make my ATC for the Tilda and Friends ATC challenge which this week is Checks, any sort of checks or Tartan.

Mine is Baking Tilda wearing a checked dress on a checked background with a bit of checked ribbon, think I have fulfilled the checks on this one.

Might go and have another play in the craft room later, but now its time for a rest, feel totally drained and worn out

Nothing to show

Nothing to show today, was out all day yesterday and today I seem to have developed a terrible cold, maybe even a chest infection, and have had no inclination to go into the craft room at all.

Hopefully tomorrow I will get down to some craftiness, but will have to wait and see what i feel like in the morning
