Time to craft!

Hello there! I hope you're enjoying some lovely sunshine where ever you are in the world!

Well, as you know life's been fairly hectic for me recently, but today is Good Friday in the UK and this means a lovely long weekend for I've taken some time off next week too! This morning I've washed my car and my mum's car and I've finally made some time for some crafting...woo hoo! Here is this morning's effort, which I'm really pleased with:

The sketch is from this week's challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday....don't forget to pop over there all see all their gorgeous DT cards...we're at sketch 98 this week and the lovely SSW ladies will be celebrating 100 sketches with a fab blog hop...I can't wait!

The colour scheme of pink and chocolate brown is for the "any excuse for chocolate" challege this week at Sweet Stampin Challenge. Isn't that brown and pink polka dot paper fab?? I just love this colour combo, it always makes me smile! I've also added a little faux stitching for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and I've embossed the image for the "emboss it" challenge over at Simon Says Stamp challenge. I've never embossed lovely boyfriend bought me a heat tool for my Birthday so I decided to give it a go! I'm really pleased with how it looks...think I'll be embossing lots more!!

Don't forget to visit all blogs mentioned above...all of them feature gorgeous DT cards - perfect inspirtation!

The other thing I've made time for this week was a little baking! I was given so many wonderful baking and cakes books for my Birthday and I can't wait to try out all the recipes! I started off with some delicious mocha macaroons......these look much better than my last attempt when they looked a little like dog turds! I made a big batch, but after taking them to work and sharing them with my family I only have two left!! I'm assuming that meant they're tasty!!

Thanks for popping by my blog today, I hope to see you again soon!
