Twisted Cards #26 & Cute Card Thursday #132

After finishing off the prepping for the workshops I got to play with the Twisted Cards sketch. The twist for this week is circle. Photo not brilliant as it was taken this evening - sneaky peak of some of the new DS papers though! This card also fits the criteria for the Cute Card Thursday challenges - thanks for the tip off there Annie.

October Make 'n' take inspired by Kristina

I always enjoy blog hopping as there is so much inspiration out there. While checking out Kristina Werners blog a short while ago she had posted her Year in Cards class for September and I thought what lovely ideas and how simple they would be to adapt for one of my SU workshops - so a big thank you to Kristina for this one.

Craft Mad and Loving it Group challenge

While I was at the craft show last week I met up with Wynneth, Jacqueline and Annie and Wynneth suggested I check out the CraftBubble site - which I duly did and joined the Craft Mad and Loving It group. Every week they post a challenge and this weeks challenge was to follow the sketch and the theme of Autumn. Here is my first challenge for this new group and I had great fun putting it together, lots of stamping, colouring and cutting out - everything I enjoy.

Winter Wonderland Challenge Deck The Halls

Found the Winter Wonderland challenge blog on my travels this weekend and thought I'd give it a go - the theme being Deck the halls with boughs of holly. You had to use lots of holly, red and green. After taking this photo I'm not sure I got the paper up the right way, but even when I turned it round the holly still look upside down - oh well!

Twisted Cards DT Call

Twisted Sketches are having a Card DT call so I thought I'd give it a go - nothing ventured, nothing gained. Either way I've really enjoyed working with the sketch and I am especially pleased with how my card has turned out. Even more importantly they also do LO Sketches, so who knows my scrapbooking mojo might return too!

Wondering now if I should have inked the edges, but I think I wanted to keep the image looking clean and crisp - what do you think?

Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #92

It's our daughters birthday on the 24th September and I've used the sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge blog - although I've flipped the sketch slightly. A play on pictures and words which I hope she will find amusing.

Linda & Lisa's 1st SU Extravaganza photo overload!

This was our first SU Extravaganza, which we had great fun putting together and it would appear that the 13 lovely ladies that were able to make it on the day (sadly Janice was unable to make it at the last minute) enjoyed themselves thoroughly - at least that's what was said on the feedback sheets. When is the next we were asked!
In the morning we made a desktop stationary holder, one set of ladies used the Tea Party collection of DS papers and the other set of ladies used the Autumn Meadows collection.
