Manic few days crafting...loads of mess...a few cards made!

I had a long chat the other night with Zoe....trying to decide whether to colour or not to colour... I decided to colour in the end and I can report that I am very happy with the result...cannot share atm though as it will be a Tanda Teaser card in about a month's time...the card itself is winging it's way to Canada as we speak..well I hope it is! So watch this space!

So I've spent the last few days making cards trying to give myself a little buffer. Jan/Feb is totally manic for birthdays. DH has been away but quite horrified by the state of the kitchen counter and the dining room table on his return...have spent most of today just putting everything away...clearing the decks ready for a mammoth crafting session while he is away next week!!! So far I've covered all the birthdays in Jan...just need to knuckle down and sort Feb's birthdays out!

So what am I going to share now.....Firstly "Lot's to do challenge blog" has set a brayering challenge this week.

Hilda is a friend of Zoe's and Zoe is a friend of mine so I just thought it might be nice to support Hilda in her last Lots to do Challenge and wish her luck in the future! For this card I have used a LOTV's more pretty than cute. The brayering was done onto an embossing folder as per "Angelnorth's instructions".....Hope this counts!

Secondly, I'm joining in with the "LOTV wings challenge" ...I've been having a good play with the Tim Holtz tattered floral dies...totally love them... and you will see that I will be using them regularly!...just need to go back to Ikea for more hand made paper!! This card is an emergency card...hence no's on stand by for one of my girls coming home saying I need a card for my friend tomorrow! know the problem! LOL!!!

Bye for now
