Crafty Girlz Challenges start today

Babysitting our 6 month granddaughter today and she's lying on a blanket playing with a noisy crinkly soft fabric book and chatting away.

Challenge 55 at Crafting From the Heart

It's school holidays so I've had two grandchildren today, their sister was unwell so didn't stay in case any of the baby granddaughters were coming over. Our daughter ended up coming down with the 6 month old so it was a good choice not to leave Amelia here. They've just been picked up and I've had time to pop in and type up this post. It's always Anything Goes at Crafting From the Heart so that makes it very easy to join in the challenges with whatever you've created. Our Sponsor this week is - Karleigh Sue digi stamps and I got to play with this fun image.
Here's my card...... I think it would make a great birthday card or a Mother's Day card.

Recipe:
SU Bashful Blue cardstock for the cardbase
Brown card from stash
White cardstock from stash
DP is from Grace Taylor 12x12 paper pad - Our Neighbourhood
Image is from Karleigh Sue digi stamps - You Make It Look Easy

I am entering my card into the following challenges (back later)

We'd love to see you popping in to the challenge blog and dropping off an entry. Someone from the DT will stop by to leave you a comment. It's such fun seeing all the different entries each challenge.
Thanks for dropping in

Have You Been Naughty or Nice? Challenge 58 at Completely Christmas Challenges

Hello, it's been a busy day today with two of our daughter's deciding to have a garage sale at our house, lol.
Hubby has been busy dragging out some of his junk to try and sell as well and not sure whether I will try to sell some of my cards or not. Nobody wants to pay much for things these days and it is annoying when you know how much time and effort you've put into something only to have someone offer a pittance for it. So....will think about it!
It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at Completely Christmas Challenges and it's Anything Goes with a twist of adding a Touch of Gold. I've coloured Santa's feather pen in with a gold Wink of Stella pen and also used a shiny self striped gold paper as one of my layers. It doesn't show well here but it is quite shiny in real life, lol.
Here is my card.......


Recipe:
SU Real Red cardstock for the cardbase
SU Garden Green cardstock for the mattes
DP - Shiny Gold self striped paper from stash
      - Pale Green dotty paper from
Image is from Lacy Sunshine - Naughty/Nice List
Sentiment from Close To My Heart stamp set -

Foam Dots
