SCSC~ Shape up for spring

This weeks Challenge at 'Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge' is 'Shape Up For Spring' (Shaped Cards) I think its should of been Shape Up for Summer! The weather certainly has been beautiful this week hasn't it? And guess what? I have been off ALL week, how lucky have I been to have such great weather.

I have used a Penny Black Stamp this week just for a change, I do love this wee little duckie its the expression on his/her face that makes me giggle. There isn't a lot of colouring to be done on this one so didn't take long to do at all lol... nice quick and simple. I just realised that i didn't really make a shaped card! Whoops I made an Easel card with a circle topper, silly women I am,to late to change it now so hope I am forgiven for mucking it up lol.. 

This week we are sponsored by' Lili Of The Valley'  you can win yourself a £10 voucher to spend.

The Grandchildren

I thought I would share a photo of my grandchildren with you since I don't have any cards to share. I just love the expression on Sara's face, she is looking at her little brother David as if to say "What are you doing" lol... I can't believe how quickly she is growing , she will be 4 months old tomorrow. 

Oh well I best get myself organised as I am off to Birmingham tomorrow for the weekend to meet up with my very dear friend Linda :) We are staying at the Holiday Inn for 2 nights and visiting the NEC on Saturday. So who else is going tomorrow? I expect it will be very busy so best get there early ;)

SCSC~ Doilies Are Not Just For Cakes

                    This week at Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge it was my turn to decide what the challenge would be so I picked ~ 'Doilies' because I think they are a great feature on a card, have seen so many lovely cards made with them. You can make your own or die cut them so I am sure this will be a popular challenge this week. 

I was intending to use a square doily but it hid all the lovely paper which are from Nitwits 'Bumbleberry Too' I turned my square into a rectangle by chopping a bit off and the sticking it back on lol..

I have seen some lovely cards lately on the Magnolia Facebook group that it inspired me to dig one of my stamps out, think this one is from the chic range, can't remember now! The poor think was hiding at the back of my stamp drawer looking all neglected (Shame on me) I have coloured her with my usual mix of markers and Prisma pencils. I have another addiction Doohickey Dies, I have admired this flower for some time now so decided to treat myself  I call it an early Mothers Day gift to myself lol.. 

This week we are sponsored by 'The Stamping Boutique' where you can win 3 digi's of your choice.

 I hope ALL you lovely Mums out there have a wonderful Mothers Day tomorrow, WE so deserve it :)

D'Arcy's Diaries Challenge ~ Anything Goes

Here is my card for the first ever D'Arcy's Diaries Challenge ~'Anything Goes'
I was so excited when I saw they where going to start a challenge for these sweet little images.I have coloured 'Swinging Blues' in with Promarkers and Prisma pencils, adding some glamour dust to the wings. 

The papers are from Dovecrafts which i spotted whilst shopping in Hobbycrafts last weekend, they are so pretty in different shades of pink. The lacy border was made with one of my first ever border punches, its by Fiskars and is still working fine, although I think some people had problems with theirs.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges 'Sketch and Stash' which is a fab sketch by Jill and Papertake weekly which is 'Anything Goes'
