A Tricky one

Been a hectic week so a very quick and late entry for Saturday Stamper last week.

Gothic Arch Challenge….theme is………………”Friendship”
Mixed Media Monday……..theme is………… “Buttons”
Fluffy Fatbottom’s Twisted Tuesday..theme is Button Wisdom”
Wednesday Stamper……..theme is………………..”Diamonds”
Theme Thursday…………………..theme is……………….”Chalk”
That was a proper challenge - really tricky but a lot of fun!

A Birthday Card

This is a card that I've made for Karin, who has her birthday today (sorry the card will be late x). Hope you have had a great day!

As it very nicely fits in with the diamond theme over at Wednesday Stampers and has a button - it will also be my first entry for Mixed Media Monday.

Hope you like it Karin!

Tone on Tone

I love using green and was in no doubt which colour I would choose for this challenge on Saturday Stampers. As I have also been sooooo short of time these days I am combining this with Wednesday stampers challenge of chairs. I refuse to be beaten and have attempted the transfer technique to apply the girl and the chair so as to lose the colour. Still not there but I will persevere with this technique. If you get a chance check out Carrie's blog - she really is an inspiration with this technique!

The contrast in colour where the transfer was applied is not so pronounced in real life but 30 photos later I give in!

Friday Fiver

This is a site Friday Fiver that I found via another blog - I'm sorry I can't remember where exactly. On a Friday they post 5 questions designed to make you think and just for a bit of fun. This week's questions together with my answers are

1. What's the last thing you threw away? A crisp packet.
2. Have you ever been to Paris? Yes - I know it very well and love it!
3. What do you stare at? The sea - I love the movement and the freedom and the moods that it has.
4. What do you hurry for? To get home to spend time with my family.
5. Friday fill-in:I could have been better organised - I'm sure that should be my motto!

Pay it a visit once in a while - it's interesting the way it can make you think!!

A late entry

This is a very very late entry to LAST week's Saturday Stamper challenge of tags. This is also for a tag swap that Gillian is organising with the theme 'Tis the season to be jolly!" Now all the Christmas stuff is out I may as well spend and hour or two making some of my cards. Have a great Saturday!
