I've been busy!

Happy Friday Folks!

Another week has flown by and I've had a busy week! I spent 24 wonderful hours with an automatic blood pressure monitor attached to me...that was fun! During the day it went off every 30 was very noisy! At night time it only went off once an hour....but I never got used to it and it woke me up every time!! Anyway, apart from that I've also been busy crafting....I've bottled some vodka that I've flavoured myself with raspberrys, I've made my sister a cute new cushion and I've also made her a skirt (the first time I've attempted this - lets hope it fits!!)....and of course I've been making cards! I'll post photos of my makes at the end of this post!

So, I've not posted since Monday so there are a lot of challenges that I need to catch up on!! My first card is for the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Circle shaped card (hope mine counts!)
Passion for Promarkers - animals (coloured with my Promarkers)
Papertake Weekly - bingo - I went for flowers, free (glitter) and buttons
Emerald Faerie - Easel card

I'm not that happy with this card...I'm not sure why...I'm just not happy with it!! Saying that I'm not particulary happy with my second card either!! And thats why I've gone ahead and posted both of them....I'm either right in my gut feeling or I'm having a bad day!!

My seond card is for the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - fab new sketch
Simon Says Stamp - bingo - glitter, lace, punches
Cute Card Thursday - Anything goes

Now I love this image...its a new stamp that I got last weekend at the Olympia craft show...I've coloured it and then used my glossy accents to fill in the windows with a glass like finish. are all my makes....

The first photo is the new cushion...isn't that print fab?? Its perfect for Lorna's flat with all her pets! The second photo is a bright pink draw string skirt that I've made for Lorna. Then we have mum at the workshop we took part in last week...shes making paper beads. And finally we have my raspberry flavoured vodka which is very tasty! Isn't that vintage bottle fab too??

Right, I've bored you all enough with my millions of photos!! Don't forget to pop by all the challenge blogs mentioned above...there are some really gorgeous DT cards to be seen!

Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
