YAY I got crafty time today :o)

Hello girlies how are you all this fine Thursday evening?? I have had a lovely couple of days, we went to see 3 of my hubbys grandkids yesterday and then stopped in at my mums on the way home. We had a good laugh playing on the wii and I whipped everyones backsides at bowling (got to have some advantage to spending all that time at the bowling alley as a teenager lol) So now I am thinking of getting a wii, Lily really enjoyed it too :o) Then I found out that I had won the blog candy at Elisabeth Bell's blog and have won the spring I am sure you can all imagine I was jumping up and down for joy!!!

I had a quiet day today at the craft table........oh it was lovely I had missed my "me"time. I made this card for a three challenges ~ Penny Black Saturday Challenge (Easter theme), Charisma Cardz (green and purple) and Sketch Saturday The image is a lovely Penny Black that Tina stamped for me, coloured with promarkers. The paper is Papermania, flowers, ribbon and brad from stash. The paper running accross the card is more green than it looks here, I am a terrible photographer lol


I am making gifts for the grandkids rather than buying easter eggs so I have tarted up this egg box which I will be filling with Cream Eggs (yummmm) The image is a Gorjuss Girl coloured with the usual promarkers. Paper is by Funky Hand Ribbon is from stash, the sentiment stamp is from Sugar Nellie cut with nesties. It's my first time using the white gel pen to highlight the image and I like it except for the hair, I did too much lol. It is for two challenges ~ Stamp Something (Happy Easter) and Cute card Thursday (Marshmallows and Chocolate)


This card is for Lily, for Easter and follows the sketch at Friday Sketchers The image and papers are all the Warren Download from Tinker & Co

Phew............anyone still here at the end of this post deserves a medal and/or chocolate and/or a large drink...............feel free to award yourselves whichever you prefer lol
