Say it with flowers

Hi all,
I hope you had a good weekend.  We went to a christening yesterday of the son of hubby's best friend. It was nice to meet up with people we hadn't seen in a while.
Over at Incy Wincy this week, our theme is to give thanks.  I have used an image from our sponsor, Delicious Doodles.
See you later.

A bit crabby

Hi all,
Well, another week has started.  They seem to be flying by at the moment.
Over at Incy wincy, we have a fantastic picture inspiration challenge for you.  I seem to be running out of time with everything at the moment, so have made a very quick and simple tag, using the sun from the picture to inspire the shape and colours.  The image is Happy Crabby by our sponsor, 2Cute Ink.
See you later.

Sparkly shoes

Hi all,
Wow, two posts in a row.  Maybe I am getting back to normal.  Martha is at nursery and Daisy is at school, so I thought I would post this before sorting out the activities I will be doing in craft club tomorrow after school.  At least 10 children come after school for an hour and love getting stuck in.  Daisy always seems to go off on tangents and never ends up with what she was copying, but that shows imagination, I suppose!
Over at Creative Craft, our theme is to use ribbon.  Easy, you would think, especially as I thought the theme up!  Well, I made the card and realised I had no ribbon on it, so had to do it again.  I was given the shoe topper years ago, but it is lovely and sparkly.  The ribbon is from a bunch of flowers I received and the papers are Webster's Pages.

The colour purple (and green)

Hi all,
I hope you had a good weekend.  It was our local village show on Saturday and the girls made loads of things for it.  They were very pleased when they found out they had each gained the most points in their categories and had a trophy to keep for a year.
Over at Incy Wincy, we have a colour challenge for you.  I apologise for my rubbish colouring, but I bought a different pack of card and it hates my pens.  I will now have to go and get some more before I can do any more colouring.
See you tomorrow.

Another Christmas card

Hi all,
Martha has her first full day at the preschool attached to Daisy's school today.  She is looking forward to it and is hoping she will see Daisy at lunch time.  Hopefully this will mean big school next year won't be as scary for her.
Over at CRAFT, we have our monthly Christmas challenge.  I have used a fab Stamp Fairy image and sentiment and gone quite traditional with a range of digi papers.

It's blue, but not a bunny!

Hi all,
I know, I've been awol again.  Sorry, but Daisy went back to school today, and hopefully normal service will resume. Daisy enjoyed her first day in Year 2 and Martha starts preschool tomorrow (only one more year and then school for her - aagh!).
I made this a little while ago, but don't think I put it on here - if I have, sorry!  I found some fab blue cord in the bargain box in my local fabric shop.  Martha claimed it and chose some fabric for decoration.  I made some Suffolk Puffs (I kept calling them Suffolk Punches and hubby was wondering where the horses were) and now Martha's cushion is in pride of place on her bed.
See you later.
