Week # 140 @ OSCC

Hi to all my friends new, old & yet to be :) I would like to wish you all a great week-end, mine is going to be so so busy and this may be the last time I blog for 2 weeks as today is the big move (Sat) and maybe by the time this goes out it could be later. I really do not know where the time goes because it's not through crafting not done a card for over a week :( it's just flown by, after Saturday I will be without an internet for 2 weeks roll on 2nd Aug, anyway thats another story the main story of today is another challenge at the One Stop Crafting Challenge blog so you must go over & play them up seeing as I wont be there to do it & you have to keep that Elaine on her toes :) so to speak.
This is a challenge a little different to those of the last week or so as it's a Sketch by Val who I'm sure a lot of you know it's a lovely sketch, this is the Sketch

I thought Oh no not a Sketch you can't always get the bearing of them I think but this such a doddle I loved doing it so much so I did it at a different angle just to show you things can be change yet still be the same (does that make sense) anyways here is my card I hope you like it I do.

For this card I used Nellie's Multi-Frame Die Set - Ovals (outside & inside for sentiment) Flowers from the Works (99p for 6) Anna Griffin stripped paper, green paper & ribbon from stash, forgotten what the pink DP is called & the image is a freebie from a craft mag.

Thank you for looking see you in 2 weeks (hopefully before if I can beg a laptop)

This is an early bird OSCC will not be up & running until Saturday (and I don't know how to do it so it blogs itself.)

Look what I got ......................

I must blog this before I loose all my Internet connections at the week-end this is what my lovely friend Kate gave me last week but I have been a tad busy packing, unpacking driving backwards & forwards to my new home (yes I've been banging on about it enough) but this is it woo hoo.

Now I have to find 8 things you don't already know about me.

1. I love blogging & hopping
2. I am proud to be part of 3 DT's
3. I am going to be sad to leave some of my old neighbour's
4. I am going to be the first person down my new road to get Virgin TV
5. I ramble on a bit (apparently)
6. I love my job
7. I don't have enough hours in a day
8. I have a mini orchard (cooking apple, eating apple & pear trees)

That was so hard they say I like the sound of my own voice & can be outspoken but I don't agree :) I would like to award this to my newest follower who I've met a few times.

1. Sharon
2. Julie
3. Elaine
4. Lorraine
5. Robin
6. Gina
7. Val
8. SteF H

Thank you for the award Kate xx

Week #9 @ B&B

Wow anthother great day in UK but don't put your macks away for the days after apparently, I would also like wish all our International frends a Happy Holiday hope you all have a great day.
First of all we are super excited to share the Bows and Berries Digital Stamp Shop June Release with you!!

Over at Bows & berries it's another challenge this week it's called Use Kraft most people know what card Kraft is & those who don't do not have any in their stash as I didn't, so I used a brown paper bag for main backing which I believe is ok. It's our last challenge before summer holidays Robin is sponsoring this Challenge



you can use the code SUMMER for 40% off all digis during the challenge!!! {That means all digis are just €1.20!}
We will see everyone back in September when we resume challenges as normal again!
As usual, you don't have to use a Bows and Berries Digital Stamp, but we love to see them!!! There is always the freebie on the sidebar for you to use if you like!!

So here is my card I hope you like it

 I used 2 of the new release stamps and had a play at welding the images together so it looked like a small group if you click here it should take you straight there, everyone knows my craft situation so this is what I came up with, I used Jack & Jill DP, TH key,peel-offs, string, bling, Promarkers, Copics,corrigated card & images.

Thank you for taking the time to look.

These are my challengers =) - Digi Day - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Use a Digi - Home Sweet Home - Gardening - Anything goes & blog HOP

Week # 138 @ OSCC

Good morning my fellow bloggers looks like we have turned a corner with mother nature the sun has been up for hours now (fingers crossed it's for the day). Over at One Stop Crafting Challenge it's another new challenge my the weeks are flying by, this week it's called TAG your IT and we would like to see tags whether it's on a card, layout or just one of those pretty tags you meet on other peoples blogs & think I'd like to do that & what do you do with it when it's made (or is that just my question?) well you enter it here and Shelley is the Sponsor of this weeks challenge.

So why not show us what you have made & help inspire someone else to take the plunge & have a go, looking forward to hopping on your blogs.

Here's my card all my work at the moment is being used by limited craft stuff as I am working with things I haven't moved yet & it's getting limited by the day so forgive me if some of my work looks a bit sparse.

The Image is from Dew Dropz Stamps she is coloured in with promarkers but I thought I would leave the Jetty uncoloured, flowers from Jane everything else is from my stash I will let you know the name of DP when I find it ha ha hope you like it I do which is a bit odd for me as I'm very self critical and usually steer well away from tags, but I made a Mini Book at Chritmas at Running With Scissors which included a page like this & I thought it would make a nice card.
Thank you all for looking & leaving your lovely comments.
Here is where they are being Challenged: - Anything Goes - Anything Goes - Sugar & Spice & all things Girly - Anything Goes - Distressing - Anything goes - Use Flowers & Promarkers - Flowers
