No I haven't made a booboo - that's the name of my little digi for the CRAFT challenge this week.

Doodle Dragon's are one of our sponsors this week and I chose to use this digi "Partridge Oops"

Our theme as you can probably tell from my card is embossing...embossed cardstock and even embossed little stars.  I have used my new embossing folder from stampin up and i love it...Coloured with my promarkers and the little scrabble letters are some that I downloaded from the web

Anyhoo I shall be at work with 32 new hca's whilst you are reading this, trying to explain how to bed bath a patient....

Do come and join in our weekly challenge HERE

Love and hugs

ps welcome to my new followers - I finally made it to 100.....

Christmas in February

Well it is over at CRAFT Challenges this week.

I have used a digi from Pattie's Creations and I must say it was a joy to colour with my promarkers.  I have really enjoyed making Christmas cards randomly so hopefully by November I will have quite a stash of them for my family and friends.

Do come and join us this week as once again we have fantastic sponsors and we do love nosing (sorry I meant looking) at your creations

Get Well Soon

Morning followers - our theme at CRAFT Challenges this week is "Get Well" now I don't know about you but I don't make many of these.  I chose a mad hatter digi from Rick St Dennis - Yes I know what you are thinking what an odd choice but I was thinking it would make the recipient chuckle and cheer them up !!!!  The card was from an idea over at Little Claire's blog to make a z-fold card and believe you me it's a doddle to make.

I used some backing papers I have had in a box for ages, computed generated sentiment (cut with my new die set from SU) and a small bow.  Of course I used my promarkers and flexmarkers to colour my image and the colours I chose were just perfect for the pastel theme.

Would be lovely if you came and joined us over at CRAFT for our weekly challenge

Take care until next time
