Tiny Funky Fairies and Elves Challenge 4

I found this challenge blog for the kids, perfect for the summer hols
The challenge for the next fortnight is set by Abigail and Maddie. They want you to make something that has flowers on it.
Here's Jamie's card (age 4)
And big sister Charlotte's (age 7)

They've both been posted to Nanny to say thanks for a lovely weekend last week!

DCM _ This Way

I'm an early bird for a change, this is today's DCM dare
OK, this week it's Tanya's turn to set the dare and this time it's a dare with a POINT! A nice sharp point, at that!
This Way!
I want to see arrows on your cards - whether big, small, staright, curly, lots or just one arrow
Here's mine
PP Basic Grey Recess, scallop calendar from Sarah's Cards (comes white but I inked it, you can't see it too clearly but you circle the date of the recipient's b'day)

Oh So Quiet

Kid's are at Nanny's for the weekend & Hubby's working tonight, so it's lots of cardmaking with a bottle of red wine chilling in the fridgeI made this card for the challenge on Sarah's Cards blog:
Create a card using...3 patterned papers 2 Aunty Sarah's Bloomers 1 ribbon
I used my July Sassafras kit and the funky owl stamp is Sassafras too
The sketch I used is Chris Ross's Bonus Sketch #2 from Page Plans

Blog Candy

I found this blog by following a link & they've got some gorgeous stamps with 2 characters called Charlotte & Charlie (more to add to my evergrowing wish list)
Katharina is offering some blog candy to celebrate reaching 100 000 hits on her blog

2 Sketches 4 You

Here's this weeks sketch on 2 Sketches 4 You
And here's my take on it (excuse the bad photo but I was trying to avoid hubby sticking his foot in to give a sense of scale)!!

It nearly qualified for the challenge on Sarah's Cards blog to make a card using 3 patterned papers, 2 Aunty Sarah's Bloomers and 1 ribbon from a card kit. Will have to make another soon with 2 Aunty Sarah's Bloomers instead of 1!!

Keeping the postman busy!!

I was lucky enough to win some gorgeous American Crafts papers and thickers from Sarah's Cards which postie delivered yesterday - thanks Sarah

What with this, some dies that I bought from a couple of people on the cbc forum and a Stampin' Up catalogue I rec'd from Rachel I think my postie deserves a week off!!
