Using this week's CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.
AAA cards want masculine cards.
 

 

Well that's half term almost come to a close.

Next school work break will be Christmas... Eek!

Talking of breaks, I dropped a frozen crab on my toe yesterday and aforementioned digit is now purple, swollen, strapped up and throbbing.

So I feel justified in being a lazy so and so today.

Have my foot propped up at my craft desk and I don't plan on moving very far!


 

Uniko Studio stamps, CAS cards



The theme for the Uniko October challenge is rainbow colours.
ScrappyMo has RudolphDay over on her blog here.






I've been playing with the Uniko "Essentially Christmas" stamp set for this card.
Christmas is not too far around the corner and you can never have too many Christmas cards!





There are some lovely ideas from the rest of the DT over at the main Uniko blog HERE.
As usual, Bev has some great prizes.

So why not get creative and upload your creation?!

You have until midnight on Friday 16 September.
Have fun ;)

There's also a new challenge, that I think will become very popular: The Flower Challenge!
 

 

Doubly happy today ...

Not only is it the start of the weekend, but

it's the start of half term too!

Oh joy :)

 

Uniko Studio stamps, CAS cards

The theme for the Uniko October challenge is rainbow colours.

I've gone for some very delicate blooms in all the colours of the rainbow
to take my mind off the very dreary, dismal weather outside!
 
The flowers are from the "Background Builders: Vines" set and
the sentiment is from the "Simply Said: Birthday" set.

Another floral card for CAS Colours & Sketches sketch
and the new challenge: The Flower Challenge.

 

Playing with my new Uniko Studio "Pure Florals: Gerbera" stamps and matching dies. Lush!

I've managed to grab a quick 45 minutes crafting inbetween dropping off and collecting younger son from rugby.
Rather him than me!
It's pitch black and freezing outside ...
You can just feel Halloween and Bonfire Night around the corner :)

 

 

Paper Players have the prompt 'leaf' and
there's a new challenge in town: The Flower Challenge.
 

 

 

 

 

 

Just love the bold images in the "Beautiful Blooms" Uniko stamp set.
Wouldn't it be brilliant for an accent wallpapered wall?!
Hope your week is panning out nicely ...
Nearly half way through the working week already. Gosh!

 

 

 

Using CAS(e) This Sketch.

Seize The Birthday has 'anything goes' and

for the tic-tac-toe challenge I've gone for (birthday-masculine-packaging).

I'm hoping my washi tape and cardboard count :)

 

 

Am nursing a stinking cold this weekend.
So taking it very easy with no housework,
Keeping warm indoors,
Sitting crafting with herbal tea on tap!

 

 
Using Color Throwdown's combo and
AlwaysPlayingWithPaper photo inspiration.
 

 

 

And it's the weekend. Yippee!

Hope you some fun things lined up ...

 

 

 

Crafty Creations want 'anything but a card'.

 

 

I made these with the children at school last week.

Stamps, inks, punches and glitter paper ...

Lots of fun!

 

 



Using this week's Freshly Made Sketch.
The Male Room and Just Us Girls want 'leaves'
and the Autumn challenge is still on over at Uniko.







It's a beautiful, sunny Autumn day.
We've just come back from a long walk with the dog,
and my pockets are full of new, glossy conkers.
Love conkers!
Did you know they are reputed to ward off spiders?
My son has piles of them in each corner of his bedroom!

 
A bit of glitz and glamour ...
 

 

... to celebrate

Marvellous Mehndi£9.00 - £9.95
