Mojo Monday week 80

Note to self.......Don't try to make a card when you have a headache!

My brain has been a bit loose all day & I'm the sort of person who hasn't got time to be feeling poorly. I thought a card would maybe relax me, make me forget about the headache, it didn't but hey I tried.
I'm not exactly falling over this card but it took me ages to make it so I'm entering for this weeks Mojo monday sketch. 

Thanks for looking (& listening to me complain)


A stapler is a fab way to let off a bit of steam as you can see from my card :)

For this weeks CPS challenge I thought I'd try to make something bright & cheery. It has been dull, wet & miserable here for the past few days & since spring is supposed to be here, I thought a bright card would lift the mood. Hope you like it. 
Don't forget to swing by CPS check out everyone else's cards.

Thanks for looking.


For this card I used - Card - Pti Aqua mist & Lemon tart. Stamp - Smirk - Sweet as honey. Paper - Smirk - Love & friendship. Ribbon - Smirk & Ink - Versafine.

The pink elephant challenge.....

Another Challenge! 

I found this one while I was having a cuppa before I got stuck into a big pile of ironing..... I still have the big pile of ironing and now I have a card for The Pink elephant challenge too lol.
The challenge was to use buttons, I would have liked to have used more than one button but I couldn't fit more than that in. 
As you can probably see from my cards lately I got the PTI Bitty dot papers so all my cards lately have the bitty dot paper somewhere. I just love it!

Thanks for looking.


(sorry about the bad photo, I took it with my phone which has a poor camera)

CPS challenge 105 Happy easter

Above is the card I made for this weeks CPS challenge. I thought I'd make something bright & cheery. I got the wee easter stamp in my local craft shop, it cost 99p! I thought it was cute. I'm not a confident stamper & I'm not comfortable coloring stamps yet but I'm trying :)  

I came across the CPS blog on Nichole Heady's blog during PTIs Anniversary celebrations & I'm glad I did because it gives me the motivation I need to get crafting.

Below is a card I made last week when I was at my best buddie Claire's house, I'm pretty sure you all know her and visit her blog as often as I do, her work is amazing.

Thanks for taking time to look.
