Doubling up!

I've decided to double up on challenges this week as life is getting a little busy again at the mo (I'm writing this while watching Strictly - I've never thought of taking my lap top into the lounge before duh!) My friend went on holiday today and I am running her hair and nail salon while she's away! (That sounds so impressive but I just answer the phones and make jewellery :))

Anyway, the challenge I combined were Friday Sketchers , which is the sketch below (which I rotated) and Stamp Something We have a new challenge for you today, it's called Something For the Birds. Make a project using bird images; any types, sizes, shapes, and colors.

The holly backing paper is from one of Debbi Moore's new cds and it is just gorgeous and the greeting stamp is one of Debbi's too (from my new design kit which is full of the most adorable acrylic Christmas stamps!) :) The patterned paper is Season of Joy from Scrapworks and the little bird is by Imaginisce........I just stamped it three times and paper pieced it together.

Well as I mentioned above, here's where life gets busy again...........we are out for lunch tomorrow, Monday is DS's birthday and as well as not having made his cards yet we are going out for tea too, I'm at the shop from Tuesday till Saturday, I got my new DT kit from Debbi yesterday and I still have about 50 gazillion Christmas cards to make as well as a couple of personal planners (but not weddingy) and eldest DD's wedding invitations to make too:) It's a good job I work best like this LOL

On a weddingy note, we bought her dress today and it is just absolutely's ivory with a burgundy trim and I love it!

I hope you all enjoy what's left of the weekend.

Take care and TFL.
