Anything BUT a card

Hello everyone, hope your tuesday is looking promising??? its looking pretty nice here, must get of the lappy and get my washing on the line in a bit lol,
Anyway firstly let me apologise for the naff photograph, these were made for an order and were needed pronto so i could only photo them in the eve and just couldnt get the lighting right grrr
They are money/voucher wallets, the idea is to leave them fairly plain, and i used either ribbon or my stampin up elastic as the fasteners,
As our theme over at Creative craft challenges is
i thought these were spot on lol,
I do hope that we see plenty of you over there entering our great challenge, we are being sponsored by Some odd girl whom im sure you have heard off? and if not where ever have you been hiding lol,
Id like to enter these wallets into the following challenges;

Hello wednesday

Hi folks,
As promised here is another card i made for an order, i used one of jennis amazing digis, she is called all dressed up and one of my faves and at 99p a bargain and can be seen HERE along with all her others,
I used papers from MME and the spotty one is embossed, i have had these papers for quite a while but tend to stroke them instead of use them lol, so thought it was time to let them out the cello bag,
Here is a close up of the image, i popped glossy accents on her dress as to sort of emboss that too!!
 Here is a piccie to show the depth of those handmade flowers, i used the daisy punches, i think they are very effective when you use matching papers?
And here is the card in full its 6x6 and as you can see i also used my martha stewart punch some white grossgrain ribbon, some gems and a computer generated sentiment,
When this one was made i really liked it, was sad to see her go really lol.
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges,
I hope you like it, my friend whom ordered it did thankfully lol im always nervous when i give people thier orders in case they dont like it lol

fancy a cupcake

Hi guys, im still here.... LONG POST ALERT lol,
ive been really busy recently with my youngest being ill on and off all last week and potty training too, ive also had a few other personal issues to deal with along with lots of admin work with my challenge blog creative craft challenges, we have had lots of new dt members join us so ive been trying to get organise things etc etc, if you too run a challenge blog you will know how much time and effort go into them lol,
anyway im here with a card to show you which i made for my mums birthday,
Its from some stash ive had for a while but never fails to make a nice card, the dovecraft cupcake papers and decoupage pad!!! i really like them.
Ive layered this one up quite a bit and added extra glitter,
 Here is the complete front view, i havent added lots of bling for a change to this one as i liked it as it was, but i recently got a new martha stewart doily punch which i had to use along with some meiflower satin ribbon,
 I do hope you like it lol. I would love to enter it into a few challenges whilst im here lol,
*Craft your passion - 100th challenge anything goes
*Incy wincy - something old something new (old papers and decoupage, new punch)
*Pile it on - spot or stripes or both
*The poodles parlour - birthday challenge
Now here is one of the reasons ive been so busy ..................... my eldest alex who was 6 in january 1st joined beavers that same week, and after going for 10 weeks or so was finally invested as a fully fledged beaver,
i have had a lot of trouble getting a hobby for alex, something he enjoys doing out of the house or away from me, we tried football/martial arts/swimming classes (which he doesnt love but still does and has recently jumped up a new level)/dance/gymnastics (which he is also trying at the mo and seems to like) lol yep ive tried all those things so imagine the joy that he LOVES beavers!!!!! and its a great thing to love as they learn them how to do lots of great things and be helpful and kind etc etc.
here is a pic of him getting his necker tie which he was really eager to get!!
isnt he teeny weeny lol that jumper is the smallest you can get,
 And here he is proudly holding his certificate!!!! isnt he lovely lol, me and daddy were front row as we made sure to get there early,he now has 4 badges i have to hand sew onto his jumper if i can remember where they all go!!!
So thats my ramblings lol phew!!!!!!
Hope you enjoyed my piccies and like my card, will post again soon as i have more to tell you if you can spare the time with my long post ramblings xxx
