My family and I recently went away for a week to sunny Queensland and had a fabulous time.  A friend kindly offered to drop in a feed our cat.  This is the card I made for her to say thanks.  I thought the image was rather appropriate!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Fussy & Fancy Friday - Pearls and flowers

Charisma Cards - Keep your cool

White on White Christmas

This fortnight over at Papercraft Junkies we are having a "White on White Christmas" challenge.  I have used the image "Doodle Christmas Tree" which is currently on sale, along with lots of other great images, so head on over and pick up a bargain for the last of your Christmas cards!  If you anything like me, you still have lots to make.

Has anyone used hot set powder before?  I tried for the first time and I must have done something wrong.  By the time I had made my way around the large snowflake, where I had started had all blown off!  Maybe I will just stick to glue next time.

I look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations and good luck!  You don't have to use a Papercraft Junkie image to join the challenge, but it would be great if you did.  Especially since the are on sale!

Papercraft Junkies "Wings" Challenge

Hi everyone.  Since my last post I have been invited to join two more design teams!  I'm very honoured and excited to now be a part of the teams over at Papercraft Junkies and DCC & Friends Challenges.

Today is my first post for Papercraft Junkies where the theme for this fortnight is "Wings".  I have chosen the "Owl scene of a tree" image, which I love.  I added the moon (Nestabilities are good for more than cutting circles!) to create the night time scene.  I'm very happy with the way it has come out.  I kept the card simple to emphasise the image.

If you want to join us, here are the rules:

  1. You can enter as many other challenges as you wish, but you can only enter our challenge with a maximum of 3 separate projects.
  2. You can enter any kind of craft you wish, providing it follows the challenge theme at the time. I.e, cards, boxes, altered art etc…
  3. You don’t have to use a Papercraft Junkies image to enter, however we would love to see all projects you make using our images.
  4. Challenges will run twice monthly on the 1st, and 15th of the month.
  5. There will be prizes for each challenge, winners will be picked at random and there will also be a prize for someone who uses a PCJ image.
  6. There will also be a Top 3 badge for the projects we like best in that challenge.
  7. Please only post new creations, No back linking.
  8. If you do not have a blog but would like to join in our challenges then please email your entry to

Birthday Dinosaurs

My eldest is off to yet another birthday party (at least this time Daddy gets to play chauffeur ), but this one is a boys party.  I'm not making a colouring book this time as the child just isn't into that sort of thing.  However, there is still the birthday card requirement.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Sketch
Here come the boys - Punches (corner rounder)
Southern Girls - Animal Crackers
Inky Impressions Challenge - Lots of layers
