Good Morning Peeps,

It's Wednesday so time for a new challenge over on Fab'n'Funky after our summer break.  Our lovely Judith is the host this week with her challenge of:

Floral Embellishments

We do not have a sponsor this week but there will be a prize for the winner.

My card was made for our eldest granddaughter Zoe who was 18 last Friday, how time flies it seems like no time at all since I gave up work to look after her and here she is old enough to look after me now!!!!!!!  We had a lovely family get together to celebrate with Prosecco and Pizza and all had a really good time.

Under the Sea

Good Morning Peeps,

Well it's been almost 2 weeks again since my last post, but hopefully now the holiday season is over I hope to get back to normal it just seems so hard at the moment to get in a mood for crafting.  Good things have been happening family wise though with two granddaughters getting excellent GCSE results and now starting terms at Sixth Form Colleges.

On to my card today which is for our challenge over on My Time to Craft where our challenge is:

"Under the Sea"

A simple card using a Kenny K pre-coloured image, paper free from a magazine, ribbon, sentiment and mermaid charm.

Hope you all have a good weekend, and I hope and pray that the people in the path of the hurricane stay safe.

A Krafty Noel

Good Morning Peeps,

Hope you are having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend and that the weather stays good for you.  Time for a new challenge over on My Time to Craft where for the next two weeks our challenge is:

Get Krafty
(use some Kraft card/paper on your project)

The image is a really old stamp that I have had for years but there isn't a company name on it!  I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder, the paper is from a LOTV pad, poinsettias cut from a Marianne die and I glittered the edges and added a pearl.

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the weekend.
