Sentimental Sundays Challenge...

Hello my lovelies, I hope you've all had a fab week & the weekend's not going too quickly for you.  We have a 3 day weekend here in the UK which is even better :o)  This week's Sentimental Sundays challenge is "Shaker Cards" (+ a sentiment)  but I don't think you just have to make cards, we like to see all sorts of creations.  As usual I have not time so I have made 2 ATCs which I also need for a swap group I'm in on Facebook.  I covered playing cards with scraps of paper used some little frames I've had in my stash for ages & filled them with beads.  The balloons are die cut & I added some wire finishing of with stamped & computer generated wording.  I hope you can join us.

The challnenges:
Creatatlicious - Up to the Sky!
Papertake - To Die For
Frosted Designs - Chevrons
Allsorts - Warm Sunshiny Colours 

I've gotta be quick, we're now off to the in-laws for dinner, Mark (hubby)'s brother is home from London for the weekend & I'm already running late.  I'm gonna make some lil envelopes for the ATCs & if I have time I will photo them too.  Thanks for looking xxx

Catching Up...

I am really going to try & get back to regular blogging cos I do love my lil blog :o)  
This is a card I made a while ago for my son's birthday but haven't got round to posting it yet.  It is very simple but I do like these monkey images from Bugaboo which I coloured with ProMarkers.  I've been lucky enough to have a couple of my cards published in magazines in the last few months & will (hopefully) get them posted soon too.  We're away for the weekend so I won't get any crafting done then & I've just gotta hope my mojo has returned next week so I can get back to creating.

Crafting for all Seasons - Feature a Creature
Kitty Bee - Birthday Boy
Scrap-Creations - Animals
Perfectly Rustics - Masculine Card
I Love ProMarkers - Anything Goes
Corrosive - Birthdays
Inky Impressions - Animal Friends

Missing Mojo...

if found please return here.  It is bad enough when you have lots of lovely crafting time if your mojo goes awol but when you only have limited time it is even more frustrating! I think the fact that every surface in my craft room is yet again covered with paper & every crafting item I possess (well not quite but it looks like it lol) doesn't help SO as I have a (much needed) day off from work my mission is to have a good ol clear out & tidy up (wish me luck). 

I missed last weeks Sentimental Sundays challenge cos I just couldn't come up with anything that I wanted to post along side my wonderfully creative teamies & this week I had to make something cos it is my MILs birthday & I'm not happy with the card at all it has had to do.  The challenge is "Decorate your cards inside & out" (+ a sentiment).  I used a Hunkydory crafting pack I got free with a magazine.  I hope you will be able to join us & there is a fabulous prize up for grabs from our very own Calypso :o)

Just a couple of challenges this time:
Suzi Bee's - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - Add a Sentiment

I'm really sorry I haven't had time to visit your amazing blogs lately too, perhaps that is part of the problem - I'm lacking inspiration, I will try as soon as I can xx  Have a great week & I hope the sun is shining where you are (& you manage to fit in some crafty-tme :o)
