Good evening everyone. Sorry I have not been on for a couple of days but for a change I have had a social life.......lol. I've been visiting a couple of friends during the week and then yesterday I was giving a friend a helping hand at her daughters birthday "pamper" party. Last night I went out for a super meal at our local Mexican restaurant, it was delicious.....mmmm..... I could eat it all again just now....lol.
I have to thank all those lovely blogger friends who have been so kind lately and nominated little old me for a few awards......THANK YOU......... I will be putting them on my blog with pride. XXX.
This afternoon I have had a chance to play and have done a few challenges and trying to catch-up on what everyone else has been up to.......naughty and nice.....lol........so to the challenges.....
This first card is for Stamp with Fun, the challenge this week was to create a 10.5 x 5.8 inch card. (I think/hope that's the same as a DL card 'coz that's what I've made...lol).
I decided to make a Christmas Card to help buildup my stash. The image is a Sugar Nellie home grown snowman coloured beautifully by Lesley and her magic Pro-makers (its amazing what a bribe of homemade chilli can do...lol).
Over at the Creative Card Crew Blog the challenge is it incorporate some sort of "embossing".I used my Cuttlebug Swirl folder for this, the image is Lola from Sugar Nellie. The Backing Paper I just love, it's from the Picnic Patch from Daisy and Dandelion, my only disappointment is you only get one sheet of each paper - boo hiss.......lol.
Finally, my last challenge I attempted was Rainbow Lady's, she challenged us to create using a "frame".Again my cooking (well really Baza's - I burn everything) has become my saviour as Lesley coloured this image for me with her bionic pens. It is an Elizabeth Bell design from Sugar Nellie. I used a frame I have had in my stash for yonks and yonks.
That's it for now folks and I'm gonna go blog-hopping.
