Good morning Monday!

Well, it's the first day of the kids half-term and I have my survival kit all ready. It's crisp and cold outside but looks like a sunny day. Got lots to do after the week-end but none of it much fun - cleaning, washing, ironing etc. But at least I am more or less OK again.
This coming weekend there is a huge craft fair at the NEC - really really wanted to go but can't :(. Ah well, maybe in the spring.

I made this card for the sketch over at Kraftin' Kimmie and gave me a chance to use the very sassy Samantha. I think she's just fab - perfect for the more mature lady. The flowers are made by moi :).

Music Saved My Soul Saturday

Just wanted to share my choice for this week's MUSIC SAVED MY SOUL. A great talent and such a waste of a man's life, Ladies and gentlemen I present .....................

God Jul

Good morning Sunday!

Yup, still got the flu or what's left of it. But at least I am starting to feel more human and getting more energy. It's rather early here so still not sure what the weather is going to be like - hopefully dry.
It's half-term so I am wondering how much time I'll be allowed on the computer. Both my sons play World of Warcraft but they will more than likely be up later so I can post early mornings and have a look at other blogs.

Another christmas card from me today. Last year I made far too few so I am stocking up now. This is for the fabulous sketch over at Friday Sketchers and I have used a super image from Simply Betty. Isn't she fab!!! The sentiment is danish and means Happy Christmas.

Bunny Chit Chat

Good morning Friday

Well, the sun is still here making everyone smile but I am still not over this darn flu. Feel as weak as a newborn chicken lol. Luclily Phoebe is better and she can breath easier which is a huge relief. Managed to do a little colouring yesterday and made one card for..............

SASSY CHERYL'S CHALLENGE. They would like to see fluffy furry friends and this one is just super. Isn't she just so cute chattering about who knows what with her bunny friends (lol - my daughter has an imaginary friend who, whenever Phoebe does something naughty, get the blame). I coloured the image using my Promarkers, the papers are scrap from my scrap box which I am trying to use up - with no luck at all.
Ribbon from stash and flowers are Prima. I used a ticket with a nice sentiment.

Good morning Thursday!
Well, the sun is shining again today but still feeling the effect of this darn flu. Been feeling ill now for 1 week with aches and pains plus a sore throat and to top it all Phoebe came home from school yesterday with a temperature. Poor baby - she gets very asthmatic when she has a cold. So now there is 2 of us ill in the house and not been feeling at all like crafting. However, I did manage to make something - took me 5 days lol.

I love autumn colours so it's a good thing there are a few challenges out there with that theme. This card will be perfect for Crazy 4 Challenges and I {heart} Promarkers as both have the theme Autumn. I followed the sketch at Sweet Stop and there is a super Bingo challenge at Allsorts - I used Pearls, Stickles and ribbon. The image is Sugar Nellie and she has been coloured with ........ yes, you guessed it PROMARKERS lol. A little stickle on the leaves as it was very frosty yesterday morning. Hope you like her!

Who me?

Good morning Sunday.

Looks like it's going to be a lovely day - such a pity when you got the flu. I spent yesterday driving to Keele University's open day with my son (1 1/2 hours away) and didn't get lost once! Now that is an achievement. My son wants to study Biological Science - which basically are the people providing doctors with all the test results etc enabling doctors to make a diagnosis. But now I feel like I've run over by a demolition truck and my throat is lined with sandpaper - yuk.

Firstly this is my song for this week's MUSIC SAVED MY SOUL. I listen to this every time I feel down and upset and I always makes my feel much happier.

Next I have a card to show you today - yes, I have finally managed to make one, not been feeling much like crafting these past few weeks but hopefully when I get better will be doing loads more.
This is a christmas card - yup, not long now. Made this the for Quixotic's monthly challenge which is Winter Wonderland - as is the challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar. This little guy is one of Mo's - isn't he gorgeous! It's called "Who me?" and has been coloured with Promarkers. The papers are a mix from stash and the flower I stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold. Not sure where the gemmed brad is from but might be Papermania

Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit here and thank you so much for coming, Mette

Ok - I promise this will be the last post for today hehe. Nothing for a whole week and now 3 posts in 1 day - shocking. But I did tell ya that I'd managed to make a few cards this weekend so here goes ................

This card I made for Sugarbowl sketch. I usually don't get enough time to join but I did like this one. The optional theme Autumn fit well in with a few other challenges. The colours this season are wonderful :). So this is a Homegrown image from Sugar Nellie. Coloured with Promarkers and I have used a lot of different papers for the layout which I have in a huge tin box. The sentiment is from K & Co and the flower is handmade attached with a button. I am also entering this card into Stampin' for the weekend and Paper Sundae challenges.
Hope you like it.

Material: Image by Sugar Nellie
Papers: a mix
Sentiment: K & Co.

Thank you for dropping by and enjoy this lovely sunny day, Mette

Music Saves My Soul #4

Another week - another song. I like playing along with Marcea's saturday music sharing and this week I have a song which my 14 year old son introduced me to. I absolutely love it - takes me back to when I was 14 (although this song is new). Just look at those guys dancing - FABULOUS

Think Pink

Oh my - it's been a few days since I last posted on here but unfortunately I haven't felt like crafting and been a little busy with life. I hate it when Mojo takes a few days off to go on vacation lol. But finally made a few cards this weekend so I have some to share.

I love the image on this card. She looks like she's bitten of more than she can handle in those roller blades. She is this month's free digital image @ Kenny K's (go get her while you can). Coloured her with Promarkers in pinks which fits in with I {heart} Promarkers challenge THINK PINK, added glitter glue to her jewellery and waistcoat. The papers are from stash as are the ribbon and gems. The princess charm I got from Quixotic. I rather like how this card turned out. The flowers are handmade for Cutecard Thursday's challenge.As this would make a super birthday card I am entering it into Crazy 4 Challenges.
