Morning all. It's my turn to choose for today's Alphabet Challenge and I've gone for 'M for Magic'. I've managed to clear enough space on my desk to conjure up this creation.

Morning all. The Galz at Cardz4galz are feeling a little 'blue' at the moment. 'Shades of Blue' is our challenge for this fortnight. I am keeping things very simple at the moment as I am sorting my stuff out with a view to moving house. It's not going well. I'm surrounded by piles of stuff and can't see much of my desk. We are looking to downsize, dramatically.

Morning all. Today's challenge at Cardz4guyz is 'distressing'. Not my usual style and I did stress a bit about what to do. I was over thinking it a bit. To be fair, the situation in my craft room at the moment is less than ideal. We have made some plans - watch this space - which will seriously restrict my craft space. I'm in the process of reducing my stash and finding suitable storage solutions for what remains. I'm also hoping that being more choosy about what to keep will help me focus on what I want to create. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by everything I have. I spend more time sorting it out than actually creating. Anyway, less stress and more distress.

Morning all. We have a brand new theme for you over at Sparkles Monthly Challenge. We are looking for your 'mushrooms or other fungi' on your projects please.

Morning all. I was so pleased with the lovely entries on my 'back to school' theme at Make My Monday but all things must come to an end and we move on to the new top of 'friendship'. I already had a sentiment (from an Etsy company called Colorspacecutfiles) printed out. Sometimes, when I'm printing digital stamps I add extra files to the sheet so as not to waste card. Quote files are always a good filler.

Over at The Alphabet Challenge we have reached the letter L for 'leaves'. The leaves are definitely falling where we are. Autumnal weather has arrived really quickly this last week. I am still stash busting so I've found some die cut leaves and kept this very clean and simple.

It is my turn to choose today's topic over at Cardz4galz and, once again, I have no recollection of choosing it. Oh well, apparently, I want to see your 'Baby Girl' projects please.
As you know, if you are a regular reader, I'm on a mission to sort my craft room out so, once again, I've pulled a very old topper from my stash. The hardest part was finding some papers to go with it. It's frustrating when you can't find the right shade of red. I've got hundreds of red backing papers. How hard can it be?

Morning all. We are looking for your 'sports and hobbies' on this week's Cardz4guyz projects.
I'm on a mission to organise my craft room at the moment (yes, I know. Again!) I've put all my little toppers and ephemera in a drawer together and I found this guy in amongst some stuff I've had printed for ages.

Morning all. So, September is upon us already and I know that the mince pies are already in the shops. It's time to start preparing for the Christmas chaos by getting our cards started. OK, I know some of you started at Easter and I've been doing this challenge all year but I refuse to get serious about it until the end of August. We are easing you in gently over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge by keeping things 'Clean and Simple' this month. I'm grateful, to be honest, as I'd just come back from a few days away and had to throw this one together at the last minute.
