DSCF0174 This is for the butterflies and hearts challenge over at this great site. Am not really a butterfly kind a girl so took me ages to actually decide what to do.

I do love how the butterfly on the background has come out though – isnt it great when something good happens by accident. I originally just wanted the watermark image but it didnt show up and i chalked over it by accident and voila !!! how cool is that 😉

CIMG1501 This was for the caardvarks challenge which was to make a card which wasnt “card” shaped, and can be found here I did try to add a couple of pictures for this but am so inadequate at it I dont think it worked. This was a real fun challenge and it was great to think outside the box.

Sorry about the images being doubled, but it didn’t work the 1st time and when I did it again I ended up with it twice and don’t know how to get rid of one. Shall add it to my lomg list of things I need to find out – lol. This was for

Have been so busy lately, half term so no respite from the kids but has been good to spend time with them too. Have managed to do a couple of cards for some of the challenges, so have finally found a few minutes to upload them. This one was sooo much fun to make. The keyword for this was bling, not something I usually do so it was a great opportunity for a change. Check out the blog I really cant remember having so much fun for a while. Unfortunately most of it doesn’t show on the photo but I think I went a little OTT.
