Be Happy Every Day...

This is the sentiment I chose for the card I made for the Cupboard Trilogy This was their first challenge and was a colour palette thus :-
The idea was to use a minimum of 3 of these colours and I chose the Sage Green/Soft Coral/Warm Beige and Raspberry....Unfortunately the Sage Green has photographed more of a turquoise
The sketch I used was #170 from Card Patterns who have now ceased to be :(

Card, Paper, Ink and Seam Binding by SU
Sentiment Stamp by Hero Arts

So my wish for you all is..............Be Happy Every Day.............thanks for stopping by.

One for the weekend...

Only managed to make the 1 card over the weekend as F1 was on and the tennis has now started so am finding it hard to tear myself away from the TV...bad girl!! Anyhooo this card was made for the Craft Cupboard Show & Tell group where we have to interpret another member's card from their album. This weekend it was Denize Halfpenny's turn and here is my take on her card. As usual my scanner has done a good job of chopping the right hand side off. I don't know which is worse my scanning or my photo!
Items I used :-
Basic Grey paper 'Nook & Pantry'
SU butterfly punch
Sentiment stamp- Elzybells
White Ink pad- Sugar Candy by Elzybells
Card, lace,white emb. pdr and pearls from stash

I think this card would nicely fit the following challenge....
Challenge 35 'Things with wings' over at Dream Valley Challenges

Let's Start Over.....

Let's see now if I can remember how to join in competitions.

This card is one I've made for a competition over at
It's a song lyric challenge and the choice of the song is from the film Beaches
"The Wind Beneath My Wings" by Bette Midler

The background was simply Tim Holtz distress inks smeared across glossy card :)

This post has taken me so long because I have had to completely change my Blog design to accommodate the new system!!!!

2 Days in a row....can't be bad!

Now let's see if I can continue from where I left off  a short while ago, which is to show you a little of what I've been making recently.

The first was a challenge to choose a card from another member of the little crafty community I belong to and to case it and the second is an ATC which I made for a challenge. where we had to use paint of some sort.  Then remembered that I have opted into an ATC swap on a crafting forum with the title of Queen's Jubilee.....aha!! you might say, and yes I will's wrong!! for it's her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee so gold definitely won't!..back to the drawing board for that one then.

So time marches on again, but I won't let it beat me!
Keep smiling :)
