Bad Blogger!

Oh I am such a bad blogger at the moment! I just don't seem to have had any time lately to do any blogging or much crafting for that matter. To be totally honest I've not really felt inspired to make anything so I've not 'made' time to do it! I did get around to finishing my 'batch' xmas cards so just have a few special ones to get done now and I made a scrapbook page and one simple birthday card last night. BUT I've been out shopping today and bought 2 new embossing folders and a new EK Success border punch, so together with my huge stack of K&Co papers I got from QVC this week I think I need to do some serious playing tonight!

Passion for Promarkers Challenge #25

Really please with this challenge card for PfP #25 it is much more my style than some of the cards I've made recently, quite simple a bit like me ;-). I really do struggle with designs that require lots of embellishments and quite often spoil them by adding too much.

This week at PfP the challenge is a sketch and any colours. I've used a digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil, card from Papermania and Bazzill, flower Xcut punch for the border, glimmer dots from Papermania and the die cut is Sizzix.

Snow Much Fun

Not totally sure about this one, I think the blue is a little too dark and the ribbon looks baggy in the photo (looks better in real life!). Doubts aside I'd like to enter it into the following challenges Die Cut Dreams #22 - Vikki's Snowy Sketch and Cupcake Crafts #65 - Snow Much Fun!.

I've used Papermania and Bazzil cardstock, Nesties dies, Fiskars border punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder, a Personal Impressions stamp and bit and bobs from my stash.

Dotty Birthday

Card number two for today, which seems to have taken ages to finish - I just couldn't find the right embellishments, so I made my own in the end but I'm still not sure....

Card is Papermania, papers are Basic Grey, the image is Birgitta from CC Designs, border punch is Martha Stewart and sentiment is Sizzix.

I'm entering this card into 3 challenges;
1. Sketch Saturday #76 - Sketch
3. Crafty Catz #7 - Going dottie!

Christmas Cats

I've just realised its been about a week since I last posted! Sorry about that folks. I really enjoyed doing this card as its my favourite colour combo for Christmas cards and I just love using Mo's digi stamps, they are the best.
