Circles #109

This week at Paper Sundaes our theme is 'Circles'. Fabulous! What a great chance for me to make one of these Telescopey cardy thingys. The whole - put it upside down and attach it together so that it can be the right way up - was a little bit tricky to start with and had nothing to do with the wee small hours of the morning at the time. I found some easy to understand instructions here at and hey presto - a Telescopey cardy thingy was born. Our sponsor this week is Stamp and Create so off you all go and stamp and create something too. We would love to see you over at Paper Sundaes.

I am entering this Telescopey cardy ... (you get it) in the following challenges:
Lil Red Wagon #121 Chipboard (Yes that Happy Birthday is chipboard)
Paper Play #8 For a Mother (My Mum would like this)
Aud Sentiments #48 Happy (and I certainly am)
Stampin for the Weekend #4 Bingo (Ribbon Sparkles Flowers)
Card Makin Mammas #39 Happy Birthday (It must be someone's) 
Allsorts #143 Anything Goes (That's good!)

Birthdays #108

This week, Paper Sundaes are having a 'Birthday' challenge sponsored by Lili of the Valley
Luckily, I do just happen to own a few of these images. If you follow my blog you will know that "a few" in my world can mean anything from three onwards. (Even 19 or 38 or 74 can be considered 'a few'). 
So, lets just assume that I had a selection of images to choose from. 

Milly - Just for You stood out as being perfect for this paper from the My Minds Eye paper pad - On The Bright Side with my favourite colours (this month) of Orange and Teal.
I hope that you will join us at Paper Sundaes with your Birthday creations.

Clean and Simple #106

At Paper Sundaes this week - our theme is CLEAN AND SIMPLE and we are sponsored by 
Simon Says Stamps. 

It looks like I am in a bit of a 'rut' by using the same stamp as my previous post - but it is only because I like this little Ribbon Tilda so much and I just needed to colour her again. Plus, she is perfect for all the Valentine challenges there are at this time of year. And even though - as my daughter pointed out - she has no mouth, (thanks for letting me know) I can actually see her smiling. No! not like the Emperors clothes - I know that he really was in his underwear :-)

Check out the other Clean and Simple cards from the rest of the Design Team and join in with this fun challenge. See you over at Paper Sundaes

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
The Shabby Tea Room #99 Love is in the Air
Stamps R Us Valentine/Love
Tuesday Throwdown #83 Use hearts
Top Tip Tuesday #69 Valentine
Deep Ocean #18 Love You!
Moving Along with the Times #134 Have a Heart

Sweet Stampin - Love

Thank you so much to Karen, the Hooked on Craft challenge co-ordinator and the fabulous Design Team. I had lots of fun creating for challenges and the Hooked on Craft on line store has such great products to work with. Loooove those flowers!!! Over at the Hookedoncraft challenge site they are currently having a DT call so that they can add some more happy faces to their fabulous team. Head on over, submit a card and let them know you are interested.  It definitely is worth it!  
 Now ... I have joined the team over at Sweet Stampin. The girls over there very generously accepted me into their 'challenge' family. No! I didn't say challenging family - I am sure they are all very nice ;-)
This fortnight our theme is THE ONE I LOVE and our sponsor is Stamp and Create. I have used Ribbon Tilda and coloured her with my Copic markers.
