Look what I ...

Over at Colour Create for challenge 33 with this card.

The challenge was a colour combo of Lilac, Aqua, Black and white. It was announced a couple of weeks ago but 'cos I've not been blogging I didn't read it until yesterday. What a lovely suprise !
Can't wait to get my mitts on these cuties. Aren't they just adorable.

Have a pop over to Colour Create and take a look at their new challenge which is Lemon, Lime with Spring or Summer flowers.

Thank you ladies.

To ALL my blogland, crafty friends. I'd like to thank you for your wonderful cards and emails. I must apologise though as I've not sent any cards out this year or even made any.

I've had a trying year and the past few months and weeks have been not my best. I'm hoping that 2010 will be better.

I'l be replying to emails and cards over the next few days while I'm off. I'd like to thank my close friends from Dabblers and the close blogland friends I've made. THANK YOU !

A fond farewell ...

as this is my last challenge for Lisa over at SOPHISTICATS, my 3 month stint is up. I would like to say what a great time I've had with the DT sista's and the challenges that have been set.
This week it's boss cats turn and it's anything "Christmas", so get creating !
Now onto my card. I love this robin stamp, he's gorjus. I've stamped him in brown onto cream card and coloured him with pencils and Sansador. I've used sequins for the holly berries and added some glitter to the sentiment which is part of the stamp too.
Have a pop over to SOPHISTICATS and have a play, there's a wonderful prize on over. While your there please take the time to visit the other DT sista's blogs, they do fabulous work.

Morning campers ...

and welcome to week 14 over at SOPHISTICATS. Our DT boss Lisa has done this weeks challenge and boy did it get me thinking. "Verses and flowers" with NO image !
I've made this simple 2 way fold card that ties at the front. It's made from SU pare and card from SU and the Papermill. The flowers are hand punched with middles from my stash..
Have a pop over to SOPHISTICATS and take a look at my DT sisters wonderful work. There's a DT slot in January up for grabs this week too.
Come on have a go, you know you want to !

See you later.
