Challenge #87 This card should have been blogged for Saturday but it was after midnight before I realised I hadn't done it.....then I went to bed! Not doing very well at my attempt at blogging every day, am I? lol DH needed another card to take to work last night and this is what I came up with.

I made the following card using an old Pink Elephant sketch from a couple of weeks ago.
and Challenges I've never done this challenge before but I like the sketch so thought I would take part. I don't know how I found the blog but I will definitely pop back :)
and this week they have a recipe which is Polka Dots, a Bow and Pink. I think you'll agree that my card fits the challenge :)
and another Valentine card!!! Almost done now which is just as well seeing as it is just around the corner :)
Saturday challenge had a colour challenge this week and I thought the colours were perfect for a man's card!

This is another fab sketch (as always) and more inspirational DT work. It's definitely worth taking a look even if you don't take part in the challenge!
Dawn has come up with yet another lovely sketch on the ICS blog.......thank you Dawn (some of them definitely stretch my imagination!!)

....which means two cards!! Only joking, I made a card earlier for the current challenge on 2 Sketches 4 U and while I was at it I thought I may as well do last weeks too, so here goes :) The first card is also for the Colour Create challenge which this time is kraft, blue and white and the optional extra this time is texture (I have used the blue linen effect bp as well as the ribbon)
Last night saw the release of the new challenge on Rosie Dee's Challenge blog where we have been given another one of Rosie's brilliant sketches. We have been sponsored this time by
I rotated the sketch for my card and used Love in Bloom paper from My Minds Eye, image from Delicious Doodles coloured with Promarkers, Prima flowers, Crate rub on, ribbon and dewdrops are from my stash. Why not take a look at the DT cards and have a go yourself as you stand to win the same set of images we used.
Two quick cards and another challenge ticked off, this time it's Sketch Saturday. The second card doesn't match the sketch perfectly but I liked the layout!

As well as the stationery and sample orders, and DT work, the following were amongst my crafty makes / commissions for the Kid's Co
I already had most of these knitted up and just had to do a couple of pairs of bootees and stitch them up. There will be a lot more in the coming months.
The box was commissioned for a little boy's first birthday who's dad is a Liverpool FC supporter, hence the red and white :)
I've entered my box in a new blog challenge called Just Cute Bears. All the challenge makes must feature a bear so as mine has one on the front I thought it was appropriate :)
Back later x
I made another card for the DDC Challenge Me Don't forget that the colours are lilac and lime and there is plenty of time to join in with out challenge. There is a fab prize on offer too for this one :)
Another card from yesterday evening was made using the Mojo Monday sketch I really like these sketches as they are never fussy or cluttered, neither of which I do very well (which you would find hard to believe if you saw my craft room :)) So, DH is working tonight, he is dj'ing at a 40th birthday party so as usual I needed a quick card for him to give to the 'birthday boy'.
Very quick and simple.
I finally managed to get some challenges done last night. I've had quite a bit on again this week with wedding orders, commissions and knitting for the Kids Co I've now got a team of knitters (friends and rellies) so we should be able to get quite a bit done between us. I asked one of the big companies who I get my wool from if they could help us at all (free oddments of wool or cheaper postage and they said no!), still, if you don't ask you don't get. If any of you reding this has any odd balls of wool lying around I would be very grateful of them :) My email addy is on my side bar.
So, onto my first card. When I first looked at this sketch I thought it looked really complicated ..when I came to do the card, it wasn't LOL
