SCSC No. 42

The challenge this week over at SECRET CRAFTER was 3, 2, 1.

3 buttons, 2 papers and 1 ribbon. I thought I'd do something a little different and NOT use an image. The papers are MMM Wild Asparagus. On the 3 cream buttons I used 7Gypsies elements rub-ons, which is something else I'd not done before and the swirls are Kaisercraft rub-ons.

Well, sometimes I suppose we ought to post something on our blogs that is far from what it should be, and this is one of those times, lol. I'm so short of time this week that I practically threw this card together for the SECRET CRAFTER Saturday Challenge. This is my entry for challenge 41. I promise to do better next time. :o)

Well, we had a super weekend here. My daughter held a big barbeque party for family and friends to celebrate my granddaughter's 2nd b/day. Mia had a wonderful time playing with all her new toys and bouncing on her new trampoline with all her little friends. My son, Lee, whom I've not seen for nearly two years came up from London to join us and it was a good do all round. :o)

Anyway, onto MAKE SOMETHING NICE my other 'new' blog. I will be posting tutorials over there so hopefully, you'll find something you like to inspire you. I'll start with some I did in the past, so you may well have seen the techniques before, although new crafters may not have done. New techniques and tutes will follow though, so keep your eyes open and you may yet discover something new. The link has been added to the sidebar.

Now, I must get on and finish a 60th b/day card I have to make. It's causing me a nightmare as my Craft Robo decided to give me grief and ruined 3 sheets of card, including my last brown sheet. Still, never mind, I'm sure I'll cope, lol.

Secret Crafter Challenge 40.

This is my entry into the Secret Crafter challenge. I really liked the sketch they did and I used some nice feminine papers. I carried through the polka dots on teddy's PJ's with the cuttlebug swiss dots (sanded over the top) and some dotty ribbon.

It's been quite a while since I took part in these challenges and it's nice to be back. :o)


Well, here I am again. It's been a while again hasn't it?

I went through quite a time where my mojo deserted me and I did very little crafting. Mind you, I was tackling a very overgrown and untidy garden and I did get a little absorbed in it to say the least, lol. Anyway, I'm back in crafting mode now and have done some LO's and quite a few cards as well.

I'm going to try the Secret Crafter challenges again too as I really enjoyed doing them.

So, here's a couple of LO's I've done the last couple of days.

This one was inspired by a sketch by Becky Fleck. It's my granddaughter following closely in my footsteps, lol.

This is Mia again, having a lovely tea party in the garden.
