Creeps up on you doesn't it.  I keep thinking there's plenty of time, but then suddenly - there isn't, lol.  Luckily, for once, I've got most of my pressie buying finished, only a couple more to get.  I daren't get any Christmas food yet though, ha ha.  I'm trying to lose weight and have so far lost 1st 4lb but 'special' food is just too much of a temptation, so I'm hanging back on that.

Anyway, it's time for challenge #145 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and this week our theme is 'Anything Goes'.  We're sponsored by DR. DIGI and there's a couple of digi images for our winner.  The image I used is one of Dr. Digi's, called Dishcloth Dave...I think the poor old sod is so cute!!! pmsl.

My papers are from MME 'Fine and Dandy - Boy' and I made my own sentiment.  I used 2 Martha Stewart punches and a Cheery Lynn corner die.

Time for challenge #144 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and this week the theme is Singing and/or Dancing.  A lovely theme I think.  The sponsor is LETRASET and there's a pack of PM's on offer to the winner.

My image is one of the fabulous Mo Manning's, perfect for this challenge I thought.  The die cut is a Joy Crafts die with a Spellbinders scalloped nestie in the middle. The flowers, lace and pearls are from my stash and the papers are from Glitz 'Pretty in Pink' pad.

You know, I'm sitting here racking my brains for something else to say, but I've got absolutely nothing!!!  I really must get a life, lol.  Oh well, never mind...maybe next time (don't hold your breath though, ha ha).

A quickie post from me today..got loads to do.  I want to show you my latest clay and plaster thing.

I have to say, I'm quite pleased with this piece.

Also, it's challenge #143 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and the theme is Christmas Trees.  Sponsored by NITWIT COLLECTIONS, the team all used their digi papers.  I used 'Great White North'.  My lovely Rudolph is an image by Elizabeth Dulemba.

It's time for challenge #142 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and this week's theme is Pretty in Pink.  Our sponsor is the lovely JOANNA SHEEN with a £10 spend for the winner.

I made my card a couple of weeks ago in readiness and since then, I've read some rather unpleasant news that the images from Papelitos (where I got this) aren't her own.  I don't know how to do a reverse google search nor do I know who the original artist of this image may be, but if anybody does, please tell me. As for the skull paper, I made that myself in Photoshop.  The pink paper is from Docrafts 'Born to Shop' pad and the b/w circle paper is from a pad by Anna Stemplewska.  The cat is a Photoshop shape, printed and cut out and the sentiment is also one of my own.The pink scallop border was done with a Martha Stewart punch.

ANYTHING GOES #79 - Anything goes.
BEARLY MINE #60 - Anything goes.
