Comma comma comma comma comma chameleon

Hi There,
Sorry - you'll now have that tune stuck in your head .... lol
Well it's nearly another weekend over - I would love to have a three day weekend - wouldn't you as they always seem to go so fast.
My daughter who is a big 5 years old, has now got a best buddy from Rainbows who lives down the street, she is a year older, but just watching them together today, really made me smile, they were playing mummys, both put their dolly up their jumper whilst getting on with other play itinery! They babies just popped out about 10 minutes later, so they could dress up at princesses. The world of make believe - don't you just love it.
Whilst they played, so did I and came off with this....
Another one of my older stamps coming into the light again lol.
It fits the following challenges:-
Crafts & Me - shades of spring.
Simon Says Challenge - 3 different papers.
Sundays with Chrissy - Happy Birthday.
Allsorts Challenge - Anything goes.
Thats it for now, gonna go blog hopping and get my wish list sorted - going to Harrogate Craft Fair soon (get me, I still have some of my Christmas money left to spend whoooooo )
Thanks for popping by.

Out with the old ....

Hi again,
Just thought I'd show you my card. You know as you mozy through your drawers and think, not used that in ages, do I use it or should I get rid of it ..... well I decided to use my embossing powders again.

I created my own background using a Clarity corner together with kaleidascope powder, so when you turn the card, the pattern is all different colours in the light. The edges of the papers have been distressed with weathered wood.
I've used sizzix flourishes and a little poem I found on t'internet. (told you I was getting ready early!)

Dieing for a challenge - anything goes and use a die cut.
OSCC - create your own background.

I've really enjoyed having a play around. Hope you to see you all soon.

An Early bird

Whooaa, Hiya, I'm finally back - my fingers have been so itchy to craft but with so much going on at home an work, I feel like i've been going backwards!
We have been audited at work so busy making sure everything in order, hubby starting new job, I started helping at Rainbows, Exams and revision helped out for my boys, a holiday booked, so now hopefully I can slow down and have a little me time! lol

As Hubby started his new job today, I took the day off, and made this....

A simple card = Yes, I know I'm early, but thought I'd make one or two in readiness! This image always brings a smile to my face - she is just so sweet, can't you just imagine your own little one coming up to you with a flower (or even a weed in some cases - as my daughter keeps picking dandylions for me!).

Sketch Saturday - Sketch.
Allsorts Challenge - Anything goes.

Good to see you again,
