Oh my!

Hi there folks - gosh what's happened??? Who has abducted Blogger???  Have 'my' aliens struck back and this time taken Blogger instead of me?  I'm in the 'no likey' the (no doubt) 'new and improved' Blogger.... Heck it took me ages before, lord knows how long it'll take me now!

Still a couple of things for you.

Firstly a double entry for this here card.  This week over at Totally Gorjuss  the challenge is for Boys Toys.  Now what could be more of a Boys Toy than a sporty Audi?  That's right not much!  This week our sponsor is Heathers Hobbie Haven.The stamp is from Little Claire and is also my DT card for their current challenge which is something round and circles.  Perfect use for this shaped card from Which Crafts UK.  Lovely as it is it was a bugger to photograph!

Now you remember my poorly kitty Jasper?  Well he's not doing too bad... good days and bad but he seems happy in himself.  Now a favourite spot with him and Dudley is an old holdall they've claimed!  Now they aren't usually into sharing....

Dudley was in first..... Jasper invited himself in and made himself comfy.... Dudley left shortly after!

I've managed to fit in a spot of sewing too.  I've got a few things in the 'projects unfinished' corner ;-))  In my defence they're complicated - well to me they are.  So I decided I wanted to do something quick and easy.  I've been after some Minky for simply ages and I finally got some (only in pink though) so I made a little baby blankie.  I backed it with some soft cotton and appliqu├ęd a heart on.  I have to say I'm really quite pleased with it.

Oh and any guesses who this is in the norty towel?

I mean would anyone believe such a sweet little face could be guilty of biting their Mummy?.....

That time of the week again!

Well its that time again! Yup tis only little Old Moi! Yup despite my best intentions I don't seem to manage to get here more than once a week! Life is hectic to say the least.

So its a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss Its a nice easy sketch this week, I draw them so they can only be easy! I opted for a Magnolia - I can never remember the names of them but she's got a teddy on her lap. I also broke into a 'new' aka unused Basic Grey Capella paper pad. I hyperventilated! Plus a bit of a colour scheme change for me too.

I used my Doo Hickey fence die and some lovely ribbon roses to finish the sketch. Oh and a few other flowers some how worked their way in too!

Here's your arty shot.

And another one! This shows that I layered up the little teddy bear. Isn't he sweet?

I'm entering this into the current challenge at Just Magnolia. The theme this week is 'Anything goes' and a new challenge at Fashionista which is also 'Anything goes' Get me eh Two challenges! Well three really.... is this a record???

Now a spot of good news - I've been asked to join the DT at Little Claires! They have some lovely stamps, oh and heaps of other stuff too. So watch this space!
