Hope you're enjoying your weekend.

It's a very dreary, wet and dismal one.

Wonderful for crafting, not so great for dog walking.

Off to walk the dog ... Yeuch!

 

 
 



Hello again!

It's time for the CAS Colours & Sketches weekly challenge.

The weeks seem to be just flying by.


 


 
 
 


This week we have a sketch to get your creative juices flowing!

It would be great to see your entries for Challenge #207.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

The Less Is More challenge this week is for 'New Beginnings'

and Sweet Stampin want to see 'dies and punches'.

 

 

 

 

I had an indulgently long stretch crafting yesterday - well it was my Birthday!

One of my pressies was this fab dotty square dies set. Love it!

The song brings back happy memories of my Dad singing to me.

 

"Daisy, Daisy,

Give me your answer do.

I'm half crazy, all for the love of you.

It won't be a stylish marriage,

I can't afford a carriage.

But you'll look sweet

Upon the seat

Of a bicycle made for two."

 

 

Off for a big roast dinner at my parents now to round off a wonderful birthday weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm over at the Uniko Studio blog today,

(please do join me over THERE)

 

with some ideas of how to get "more bangs for your buck"

AKA same stamp set two ways!

 

 

 

 

 

I was inspired by this week's colour combo over at CAS Colours & Sketches.

I need to make a card for my son's imminent birthday, but thought this week's colour combo over at CAS Colours & Sketches was more suited to a feminine card. 





They aren't colours I would normally put together but I was pleasantly surprised to see how well they work. 









Why not join in on the action? 
You can link up your card HERE

Meanwhile, I'm off to bake and ice a birthday cake for my elder son's birthday tomorrow ... 
Oh yes, and make him a birthday card! 

January is just one long month of birthdays, cards, cake and celebrations in our household. 

It's fabulous! 

  

It's my husband's birthday today, so it's fitting that this week's card for the CAS Colours & Sketches is the one I made for his special day!  








It would be great to see your entries for Challenge #205.
You can join in the fun HERE.




I'm off to eat a slice of hubbie's birthday cake ...




Happy 2017!

I'm delighted to have been invited to guest design for CAS Colours & Sketches this month :)









For the first challenge of the New Year, we have a colour challenge for you:



A fresh, light and airy combo (don't you think?) after the rich opulence of the recent festivities.

You can link up with the challenge HERE.


I look forward to seeing your entries!
Here's wishing you a fun-filled and healthy 2017.
