I used a piece of Imaginesce patterned paper, bling card and gems and a sentiment by Craftworkcards. The image is a Penny Black one "Fur Ball Fun". Isn't that sheep cute? I used my new promarkers to colour him and the chicks in.
I'm loving these challenges.

It's a Magnolia stamp which I stamped and coloured using watercolour crayons some time ago. I glittered it up today as Kat loves glitter. I used stardream gold card and the patterned paper is by Imaginisce "all kinds of happy - party poppers". The wording is Doodlebug mini just my type which I glittered using Doodlebug sugar glitters.
I love sketch designs and came across this one which caught my eye on 2Sketches4You, along with that and some free paper and rub on images from a magazine I created the following card. I like the way it turned out but as always am critical of my own work, the rub ons were quite hard to rub off and kept coming away on my fingers so am not overly happy with the wording.
Not sure yet whether Mum will receive this card or not. She loves flowers so would like it but ... we will see.
Take care and thanks for looking :)

It's half term this week so no work for me :) instead I managed to make a few cards this morning for Natalie on the cardmaking forum, she's going to collect our cards, parcel them up and send them off to help the Create-a-Card for Cancer Care 2009 appeal, it's such a worthwhile cause. In the process of making some this morning Mojo Monday helped and I used the sketch for this week (sketch 74):
I didn't get to use sketch 73 last week but created a card using an adapation of the sketch today:
Here are a few of my other cards for the Cancer appeal.
The patterned paper on the first four cards are by K&Co, the pink one had some paper from the Spring DCWV matt stack. The sentiments are by Craftworkcards.
My Uncle (Mum's twin) isn't too well at the moment :( we are prepared for the worse and it's just a matter of time, we continue to pray for him. As my Uncle lives in the South East of England (a good 4 hours drive from here) and our cousins are with him, we are looking after Mum who is naturally upset. It's good I have this week off work.
Take care and thanks for looking

Please ignore the marks on the light blue card, it's not on the card itself but on my scanner!

Unlike last week I managed to get the Mojo Monday sketch card completed earlier this week. This is the card I made this morning for a friend who's going through a hard time at the moment:
I love it, and hope she will too. The verse is from the Stampin Up God's Blessings, the card is also from Stampin Up. The patterned paper and large flower embellishment is from K&Co. Prima flowers and glitter card complete this gorgeous card. Wish I could keep it myself but I need to go and post it now.
For those who can't read the verse it says: A friend is someone who strengthens you with prayers, blesses you with love, and encourages you with hope.
We were lucky in that we didn't have hardly any snow yesterday and what we did have didn't lay for long as it turned to rain yesterday evening. We had some lovely sunshine this morning which will hopefully defrost my car before I have to leave for school.
Have a great day.
