I'm forever blowing bubbles.....

Evening! What did you get up to today? I met up with a friend for coffee in Blackheath village for a few hours, which was lovely cos Sam's gone away with his Nan and Grandad for a week and being a Bank Holiday weekend, I'm feeling a bit billy-no-mates!!
There's a fab sketch over at the Sketch N Stash Challenge blog so I thought I'd join in, here's my card:
I've used a gorgeous image from Time for Tea Designs, which I've coloured with Spectrum Noirs and Promarkers, with chalk and stickles. The papers are Forever Friends Kraft Notes - a mix of the 6 x 6 pad I already had and my bargain 12 x 12 one!! Then I've just added some ribbon and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and a couple of pearls from my stash and that's it!
I'm glad to have an extra day off work so that I can catch up with a few things. We're bringing our new puppy home next weekend, so I've booked the first week of September off which will give me even more time - in between cleaning up after the little pup!
I'm also going to enter my card into the following: A Gem of a Challenge 'Anything with a B' (Bubbles!), Inspire Me Friday 'Anything Goes', Sister Act Card Challenge #21 'Anything Goes', Chalk N' Stock 'Anything Goes (with chalk)' which I used all around my image.
Hope you like my card, thanks for popping by and any comment you might leave me. Back

Afternoon! Hope you're enjoying your bank holiday weekend? I've just got home from shopping and while I was out I popped into Hobbycraft, where I found these bargains......

If you can't see from the picture, I got the Boofle, Forever Friends Kraft Notes and Papermania Pastel Spots and Stripes Capsule Collection - all 12 x 12 - for £5 each!!! I've already got the Kraft Notes in a smaller pad and love the designs and the other two are full of really useful designs - like stripes, spots, hearts, gingham, etc that are always useful!!! Anyway, I thought I'd share cos it might be worth checking out a Hobbycraft near you in case they've got something similar!! And I was feeling rather pleased with myself too ;-) Bye for now...........xx

Fun at the Beach!

Morning! It's time for a reminder of Janine's sketch over at the Friday Sketch Challenge - here's my card:

I must admit to being really pleased with the way this one turned out, not only did I have the perfect papers (and matching flower) - Prima by the way - for this super cute image from Pollycraft, which I've coloured with Promarkers and Speccies. I also got to use some of the shells that I collected on the beach earlier on in the year when we went away to the Isle of Sheppey!! I've also added a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps and some webby stuff (don't know the correct name for it!) from Bunny Zoe's. It was one of those cards that just came together! I hope you like it too - and don't forget to join in with the challenge, there's still a week left.
I'm also going to enter my card into the Pinspirational Challenge (photo inspiration), Digi Haven's sea life challenge, and Daring Cardmakers 'Life's a Beach'!
Bye for now..........Mxx
