PBSC "Piggy Chic"

This is my entry for the Penny Black challenge this week. The sketch was good fun and I decided to use it as an opportunity to use up all my scraps!!!!
Image was coloured with Promarkers & mounted on to various off cuts of paper. Then embellished with Fimo buttons and eyelets for a shabby chic feel!!!!
I am making this a short post as I am off to dinner for Hubby's B'day!

This is my entry for this weeks PB challenge which has a love theme. I made this little Valentine card for my son to give his best friend Beth.
Kitty coloured with Promarkers and mounted using Nesties. Prima flower,sticky ribbon and button to embellish. I couldn't resist adding a bit of sparkle to the flower with my glitter glue !!
I still have not had a chance to use my new "spring burst" papers & embellishments, or the Coredinations card stock. I am looking forward to Friday night when hopefully I can make a start on some Easter/Mothers day Cards etc..
Hope you are all having a nice week

Sketch Saturday

Hello all, I hope you had a good weekend. I had a lovely day out with the girls on Saturday which obviously involved shopping & lunch!!! Then Sunday we had a nice winters walk at Virginia Waters. The card above is my entry for this weeks Sketch challenge. I am not sure about the card thou, its unusual for me not to have a stamped centerpiece. My mum brought me these nice 3D heart stickers from Anita's so I made the card for her to give to Dad. I love the simple but really effective layout of this weeks sketch.
I made this card using one of the lovely images from another Blogger. Stamped tag was a freebie from a magazine, Embellished with Prima flower & brads.
I hope to have a catch up with every ones blogs and awards I have kindly received etc... I just have a mega busy week ahead, so I will apologise in advance if I don't have time to collect awards & update blog etc....
Have a fab week

PBSC Circle Card

This weeks challenge was to make a circle card,so the Nesties got some use this week. Image coloured with Promarkers & whispers,mounted on to DCWV rock star papers (didn't scan well as foiled). I then used ribbon & iridescent glitter glue around the edges. The scan doesn't do it much justice but it is quite a cute little sparkly gift tag in reality.
Hope you are all having a nice week,the snow is finally starting to melt here. I enjoyed it for a while but now its good to get back to normality.

Snow fun!!!!

These pics were taken yesterday in the garden. Zack is loving the snow and has been out sledging today with Grandma & Grandad.
I am going to attempt a walk into town later as we are starting to get cabin fever here!!!!
I want the snow to disappear now as I am waiting for some crafty goods to arrive and we have had no post for the last two days!!!
