Hope you all had a lovely weekend - back to work now though :0(. I was home alone on Saturday as Brent had to go into work so after my 54 lengths of the swimming pool I spent the rest of the day in Crafty Corner - how nice! Fingers crossed that my efforts in the pool help me lose a bit of weight for weigh in at Slimming World on Tuesday!
It was my Crafty Buddy Karen's birthday yesterday and I am sorry to say that I didn't manage to get her birthday card to her on time - how rude! I did give her a card to open so that she had something (as well as her pressie of course!) but the card was awful! So awful that it looked like a two year old had made it, so I've made it up to her with her proper card that I've given her today - I hope she likes it! And here it is:-
And she does know too much - especially how much I spend on crafting goodies!!
For the inside of the card I used the new Fabric paper from the Forever Friends Kraft range - beware the edges do fray a bit......
Here is a close up of the image:-
However, this is the second attempt at colouring - my first is below. The colouring was fine - in fact I think the blonde/light hair is actually better on this first attempt, but the greeting stamp fell off of the block and so I couldn't use it - I did swear a bit!!
Now I know why I use more digi-stamps than normal stamps!
I hope you all like the card too!
Fingers crossed for Weigh-in day on Tuesday and hopefully I'll be able to blog some more cards soon!
Well the Spring weather didn't last very long - it's back to the rain now, what a surprise! Still on the plus side, Brent has had to go to work today so I'm spending the rest of the day in Crafty Corner - I've already been for a swim this morning.
Anyway on to the challenge, which is a day late - sorry! The theme at Digi Haven this time is Mother's Day/Floral and is sponsored by:-

I've chosen to use a Poppy Digi-stamp from My Grafico and here is my DT card:-
What do you think - I don't normally use flowers on their own.
I'm off now to schedule another post for Monday and to start planning some more cards - can I get any more made while Brent is at work - watch this space!
Don't forget to join in our challenge at Digi Haven!
Enjoy the weekend everyone

It's bank holiday Monday here in the UK and for once the weather was nice! Bit chilly when it clouded over but when the sun was out it was lovely. Need to catch some rays on my lilly-white legs lol! We even had the first BBQ of the year which was scrummy! Fingers crossed that the weather will be OK every weekend so that we can have one. Just need to remember that my belly isn't as big anymore, left over goodies for lunch tomorrow!
Anyway onto the new challenge at Forever Friends and the theme is Pastel Colours. This challenge is sponsored by:-
Here is my card for the challenge and I've used an image from OPC:-
I hope you like it - I had a nightmare using the new Spellbinders dies, so much so that I think they are the worst crafting product I have ever bought. I might even sell them! Full details of the card are below.
What a busy day at work today, no lunch hour for me but I did find 5 mins to sign up for the Cancer Research Race for Life in July. Now I've lost loads of weight it should be a doddle (famous last words!!)
Anyway on to the challenge at Forever Friends and its an easy one for you all to join in today and its 'Anything Goes' and is sponsored by:-
For full details on the prizes on offer and to join in the challenge pop over to the Digi Haven Blogspot.
I decided to use the Mermiad image and here is my card:-
The photo doesn't really show its true colour - in real life it is more green than blue but I hope you like the look of it anyway! Her tail is also covered with stickles (as are her flowers) but the camera doesn't really pick this up either. Think I might try and get another photo tomorrow in the daylight!
Enjoy the weekend everyone - I need to do the food shopping online and Woodi also has a vet's follow up appointment tomorrow, oh and not forgetting I'm off for a swim in the morning - busy busy busy!!
Don't forget to come and join in our challenge at Digi Haven.
