Morning all. Today, over at Cardz4galz we would like you to try 'triangles' on your creations. I have a triangle die set but it gets very little use and I don't think I've ever used it on a female card. Oh well, here goes.

Morning all. Over at Cardz4guyz today we are looking for some 'summer fun'. Loads of scope for your creations with this one. Personally, I love to go camping. Me and a few books in the middle of a field is my happy place. Well, anywhere with a few books and time to read them is my happy place really.

Morning all. This week's challenge at Make My Monday is suitable for all. Didn't you just love colouring in when you where little. I know I did. I still love it now and I have a good reason to do it. Let's see your 'Colouring' (any medium) please.

Yellow is my friend apparently!
Now, having publicly stated that Yellow and Orange are my least favourite colours I've posted two yellow cards in two days. What is happening to me?
Over at The Alphabet Challenge we are up to 'F for Friendship'. Well, as I'm running really late this week with my challenge cards I was looking through my pre-made card blanks. I use my paper scraps and card sketches to make up card blanks that I can add to in a hurry. I picked out a pretty paper with stitched detail that must have been in there for years. I printed a quote from Cintra Graphics on Etsy and threw a butterfly at it.

Pleased as Punches (or Dies)
I am so pleased with this new challenge over at Cardz4galz. I have so many dies and some don't get out much. We want to see 'punches or dies' used on your projects please. To be fair I have punches too but I don't like them half as much.
The idea for this card popped into my head and translated way better than I imagined it would. Surprisingly, I couldn't get the idea out that it had to be yellow. Yellow and orange are my least favourite colours but I needed this one to be yellow. My brain is acting funny.
I absolutely love how it turned out. I need to make another with the papers I have left. Considering I don't like that paper I wish I had more of it now.
Ok, over to you. If you need inspiration - or even if you don't - please pop over and see what the DT have come up with. They are such a talented and creative bunch.
Thanks for reading.

Watch the birdie
Ok, so I'm seriously off the ball this week. Sorry that this one's a day late. Better late than never though. We are looking for 'things with wings' this month over at Sparkles Monthly Challenge.

This week's challenge at Cardz4guyz is a little hard for me. We want to see 'Father's Day' projects please. My dad always had his birthday the same week as Father's day and I would have to come up with two cards in one week. Now he's no longer with us I can think of so many ideas for cards I would have loved to send him.

Morning all. OK, the bank holiday celebrations are over with. Back to normal today! If, however, this weekend has kicked those summer vibes into action today's topic of 'Summer Fun' - over at Make My Monday - may be just what you are looking for.

God Save the Queen
Morning all. We have a lovely new challenge for you over at The Alphabet Challenge today. We are looking at 'E for Embossing' either wet or dry will do. Believe it or not I didn't set out to make this card. My ideas were entirely different but I got caught up in the patriotic tide when I found my Union Flag embossing folder.

Patterned paper? Where do I begin!
Morning all. We have a lovely new challenge over at Cardz4galz starting today. We would like to see 'two or more patterned papers' on your project please. Luckily, I do have a couple of sheets of patterned paper hanging around, lol. And, believe it or not, I didn't use it as an excuse to buy another pad. In fact, the 12 x 12 pad called 'Dreamy Pastels' (from Craft Sensations), is the closest one I've ever come to using up. I really love every paper in it - even the cut aparts. I did find two sheets I'd not already cut into and this is what I came up with.

It's going to be a Cute Christmas
Wow, almost halfway through the year already. Best get cracking with those Christmas cards. And we are here to help with this month's theme over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge. We would love to see your 'Cute Christmas Critters' please. Having gone through my images and needing something quick (you have no idea how far behind I am with my DT work) I had a pile of cute critters to chose from. Then I had a look through my Hunkydory toppers and found another pile of cute critters - literally.
Ok, let's see your cute Christmas Critters please.
Thanks for reading.
