Where has time gone just recently? My mum has been moaning that I haven't updated my blog and the only reason I haven't is because I've not made anything! Well today I actually did some crafting for a change and I really enjoyed it - maybe I should do it more often!! Here is one of the cards I made.

D is for ....................

.............doodles! This weeks alphabet challenge!! I used Linda Luckin's swirl design stamp. I added white doodles to the swirls.

French Chocolate

I wonder how many people this quote would be good for? Me for one!! I love the photo stamp - how come french things always look so romantic??

Window Fun

This weeks My Time to craft challenge is " window fun" just include a window somewhere on your card! This window is made with Stamp from butterfly kisses and fiddly to cut out but I love the end result.

Oh how I like a Challenge!!

Boy this one was a challenge!! It is always a relief to finish an ordered card and as long as the card is liked well worth while!

Pretty Flutterbye.

And another one - this time a pretty butterfly made with a Tim Holtz sizzix die! I saw fusible fibres being used on QVC yesterday and as I happened to be ironing at the time I ran and grabbed my unopened bag and ironed the whole lot! So it might be making a few appearances in the next few weeks!

Resting my Eyes!!

Another card for my Mum's pay as you go box! I have a feeling she might like this one! I know a few people myself that this would be appropriate for!

Rhapsody of Roses

This weeks My Time to Craft Challenge is "Rhapsody of Roses" So it gave me a chance to use my gorgeous rose stamp designed by the clever Linda Luckin.
