Good Morning !

Cold and very windy here today.There is even snow half way down the mountains ! Total contrast from the last few weeks, but we knew it was too good to be true, it was more like spring than January ! Last nights Hostage Drama on Tv was very exciting,looking forward to seeing the last episode next week..l have a nice steak pie and roast potatoes cooking away in the oven for lunch , so l thought l would catch up a bit in Blogland ! Here is the card that l am entering into the following challenges...Stampin' B's the theme there is ' use any sort of banner ', so l thought the little bow banner fitted that !..Over at Cute Card Thursday ,they have a recipe challenge '1,2,3, of anything ', so l thought that 2 hearts, 3 bows, 1, patterned A4 card fits that criteria.At My Time To Craft , the theme is 'Spots and Dots', l think the swiss dots on the hearts fit in well... Most of the items used on this card have come from the Kanban range of products..'Ink it up ' stamp pad (chocolate Brown)..cuttlebug ( swiss dots folder)Bow banner & Pearls from my stash. Wishing you all a lovely afternoon..Hugs Susan xxx

Evening all

Just a quick post from me... Its been a busy week,but l have got a few projects underway. l have managed to get over to a lot of you and leave comments and catch up on your lovely blogs,and all your news. l would like to wish you all good luck with all your challenges ! Watching Jamie Oliver and his 30 min meals.l bought the cookbook, and its great ! but l love to watch him prepare the recipes. Later this evening we have the second episode of the new Hostage Drama, l am really enjoying this..American idol is also starting tonight, so l am hoping l can watch it on +1, as both shows are at the same time..What a dilema ! hehe Hope you all have a lovely evening whatever you will get up to !

Bah!Humbug! Challenge

This week over at Bah!Humbug!, the theme for the challenge is 'Use Stencils'..This very simple card was made using a 'presents ' stencil and shaded in with chalk.l have done a little embellishing with some peel offs and finished it off with a silver ribbon bow. The corner punch is from X cut..Amanda liked the card for its simplicity, but l must admit l am glad that the 'Stencil ' challenge is out the way ! hehe...Still, its one for the box, and not everyone likes the same style, so it will find a home in December ! Wishing you all a lovely Sunday ! Hugs susan x

Good morning !

Hi everyone ! What a beautiful morning we are having here in Mallorca ! Sun, blue skies & light breeze! Almost seems like spring, well today at least hehe..Looks like rain is on its way for the weekend, just when our town has its ' fiestas' but thats for another post... Over at Creative Inspirations the theme this week is 'Photo Inspiration'..Also over at Top Tip Tuesday , the theme is ' Anything goes '.... so l thought this little simple card fits the criterias..l have used an aperture card, with a sheet of acetate ( l think l have just managed to take out the glare from the photo , of the acetate ).The doggy's little bowl l have attached to the outside of the acetate using a foam pad to make it pop, same as the other embellishments !Other items are from RAKs from my lovely 'Craft Beautiful Forum 'friends. Ribbon is from my stash, and l bought it from 'Muller' here in Mallorca. Hugs susan x
