Dresses and wheels!

Evening All - a bit of a late one from me this evening, but its been an exciting evening and now I can't sleep! I found out that my new laptop is on the way...in fact it should be with me tomorrow! Woo hoo! Plus I booked my holiday with Becca...we're off for five days in sunny Teneriffe in September! Because we are only going for five days we decided to treat ourselves and we're staying in a lovely hotel! I can't wait! I've also just spent a lovely weekend with my gorgeous boyfriend Joe...with not a car in sight! We celebrated three years together this weekend with a mini trip to Marwell Zoo. It was a lovely break, the weather stayed nice, my knee didn't play up too much and I had Joe all to myself - bliss!


Right time for some cards......

So, in my excitment I decided to look at all my favourite challenge blogs and get some cards made! Over at the Allsorts Challenge their theme is "Dressing Up".....you can create anything that features dressing up from fancy dress to a posh frock for a fancy event. I decided to go with the posh frock option....

I think Birthdays are definitly the time to celebrate in style, so I created a little black dress out of paper, with a ribbon belt and a tiny pair of killer heels! I steered away from my usual pinks and purples for this card and instead opted for a smooth greeny-blue colour scheme with swirls for a bit of glamour!

Take a peek at their blog to see the gorgeous DT cards!


The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week has the theme of "hot wheels"...they want to see projects featuring wheels. I love making cards that feature cars...I've made so many different ones before, many of which I have shared with you already. Today I decided to try something a bit different.......



....yes I made a fab yellow camper van! I've made this based on an image I found on the internet, using papers from my stash. I thought the cute daisy backing paper finished this cheerful card off perfectly!

The DT have created some lovely cards, take a peek at their blog to see them!




I hope you like my latest cards, as always I enjoyed making them...though I'm not sure whether I'm ready for bed yet! Thanks for popping by my blog today!
