Vintage Santa

Good morning, good morning.. Huge apologies for my lack of posts but there has been lots going on on the craft room and I am hopeful that this week will be a better week than the last few as they have relentless with bad luck....

So..... Let's start with some happy news... A lovely lady called Anet recently left a comment on my blog asking me if I would be interested in joining a new DT Team... How lovely.... Although I have made a decision to cut back on my DT's,  having visited the Challenge site I decided it would be a lovely place to play and hopefully you will join in too...

So without further ado I am extremely proud to tell you that I am now a DT Member for "Creative Craft Cottage"... We are a fortnightly challenge, falling on the 7th and 21st of each month...

Creative Craft Cottage

So onto our new challenge and the theme this fortnight is "Spots and Stripes" and we are sponsored by the talented Rick St dennis ....

Coffee with Riff

Good morning lovely people.... So a few weeks ago, I blogged a card I made for my friend Julie, and as I explained at the time there is also Annie and they are affectionately known by me as Riff and Raff and last weekend it was her birthday...  
Annie's card was going to have to be classy and pretty, as a self proclaimed princess, whiches were not going to cut the mustard for Annie... So to the ever faithful LOTV box of stamps I went and as when ever the two of us meet up for coffee it turns in to a three hour session lol, I thought this stamp called "Coffee Break" would be perfect...She loves the garden and the out-doors, so I tried to give it a bright summery feel, in her favourite colours, topped with lots of flowers...

Using the same paper for the inside....

Camper-Van Dad

Good afternoon all...I'm afraid it's gonna be a quicker than normal post from me today.... (This may please some of you lol...) I've been knocked down by a spiteful virus, that has been with me for nearly two weeks, so awake is the M.E and bed rest it is....and I hate bed rest, my body may fail me but my brain wants to continue, all be it with considerable bouts of brain fog....

So onto todays post.... which may inspire you, hopefully to take part in the new challenge at "Digi Galore".... This months theme is "Father's Day" and our wonderful sponsor is Dr. Digi and these fun images are just a joy to inspire you... I have been a little bad too,lol, due to that dam brain fog I forgot to make a note of the Promarkers I used, I'm soo sorry, not my normal organized self at all lol.....
