My Steampunk Design - Challenge #118 at Aud Sentiments

Hi and welcome, it's been another warm day today. I've been out exercising (weights today) and then spent the afternoon with a friend crafting away. We both were colouring Christmas images for use in the lead up to the big day. I've got quite a stash growing but would like to do a few special ones for close friends.
There is a new challenge starting today at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog. Our theme this fortnight is to use a 2 or 3 word sentiment on the front of your card. An easy challenge and it can be any occasion as well so no hardship coming up with something.
Our wonderful sponsor is The Paper Shelter.

Here is my card.........

Recipe:
SU Crumb cake cardstock
DP was a free image I found on the internet
I also found the clock and cogs image on the net (layered over the paper in right hand corner)
Image is from The Paper Shelter and is called ~ It's Tea Time
Sentiment is from SU Friendly Phrases
Circle Punch
Copic Markers
SU Crumbcake inkpad (I layered a piece of crumbcake cardstock with the edges sponged over the same colour basecard)
Memento Basic Black inkpad
D/S Tape roller
Foam Dots

I think this one turned out quite well and is still in my CAS style. Her hair doesn't show that well in the picture though, might see if I can get a better shot tomorrow.
It's your turn now, I do hope you can join us on the challenge blog. We had a massive turnout last fortnight. It's a wonderful prize from our sponsor and who knows, it could be you being announced in a fortnight's time. The rest of the DT and I would love to see you pop in to our personal blogs and leave a comment. I'm starting to feel a bit like a leper lately - I know you're out there as the stats say there have been  visitors. Thanks to those of you who leave comments, they are very much appreciated and we all love to know what others think about our creations.
Have a good week,
Thanks for stopping by,
Take Care,
Hugs,

Candy is Sweet Challenge #94 - Anything Goes with a twist

A warm day today and unfortunately all spent indoors. Off to church on time this morning only to be detoured the long way with only one lane of traffic instead of 3 and longer waits at traffic lights too. It was a miracle that there was still a park just down from the church as I was on my own and being  in the choir meant I couldn't afford the time parking too far away and walking back to the church. I missed the practice we usually have and luckily the anthem was one we had been practicing. Another huge detour home after church, some grocery shopping, a quick lunch at home and then off to see our daughter, her partner and our new grandbaby. Also caught up with a couple of friends who were visiting them as well. Home late afternoon and now I am busily tapping away getting my post done as I forgot to schedule it. Hubby hasn't come home after leaving here at 9 a.m. on his motorbike so who knows where he actually is. I did get a text message saying he would be home in an hour and that he is ok, lol.
Well, I better get on and share my card for the new challenge starting at 613 Avenue Create this week. It is as usual, Anything Goes with an Optional Twist...... and that is Candy Treats
Our sponsors are Doodle Pantry, Fitztown and Digi Stamps 4 Joy  - I used this sweet little fairy on my card and as I don't celebrate Halloween I made it about friendship still with a candy theme.
Here is my card.......

Recipe:
SU Early Espresso cardstock for the cardbase and circle (it looks black here, but it is really dark brown)
White card from stash for the sentiment and image
DP is a freebie from Create with TLC
Image is from Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Freckle Faced Sitting Fairy
Sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC
Nestie Die - standard circles - large
Copic Markers
SU Crumbcake inkpad
D/S tape roller
Foam Dots

Please come and join us for the challenge, there are some lovely prizes to be won and we do so love to see all the fabulous creations being dropped off in the neighbourhood.
So.........Let there be candy,,,,,,yum!!!!
Thanks for stopping by,
Take Care,

It's been a full day with our grandson staying overnight and going home just before lunch, craft at a friend's and then out to the shops with her to pick up her new glasses and I bought some nice fish for tomorrow night as we have 3 grandies staying overnight with us.
A night off cooking today as hubby won a voucher for two to a smorgasbord dinner. We were going to go last week but  in between babysitting, painting walls and staining floorboards and dropping in on our daughter to be told of her news (engaged!!!) we just couldn't manage to get to the hotel at the right time.
So... it's goodbye from me on the Crafty Girls DT but the blog still has two challenges to go so we would love to see you pop in and enter a creation. The rest of the DT and I would appreciate you popping in to our blogs as well to leave a comment and remember I'm going to be creating for Crafting with a Heart shortly so watch out for my first blog post for them.
