Anniversary Challenge & Prizes!

Omg, it's been nearly 2 months since I last posted! So sorry! All my energy has gone into working on getting our house to the stage where it's at least habitable that my crafting has gone by the wayside. This week I have managed to make 2 cards though (woop woop! lol). The first one is for the current sketch challenge set by Elizabeth on the elzybells blog here.

I've used papers from 'Poppy and Friends' double sided patterned paper pack by Helz Cuppleditch and both image and sentiment are from the elzybells web shop. I paper pieced the balloons so the whole card co-ordinates nicely.

For my second card - designed for the Bee Crafty Challenge Blog to celebrate their 1st Anniversay,I've used the cute 'ballooning mouse' digi image, available to download here. I am so into those Helz Cuppleditch designed papers that I've used them on this card too. I'm really miffed at how dull the colours look on this one though. Grr. You wouldn't think it but it's actually a really bright and cheerful card when seen in person.

Why not hop over to the bee-crafty blog and join in the challenge. The only criteria is that a digi image must be used somewhere on your project and your design must have a birthday theme -so simple and yet you can win some great prizes...

Sorry again for being so lacking in the posting dept.. but as you'll see from a couple of piccies below, the house needs my full attention atm!

Thanks for stopping by.. x x


  1. I really like the colors you've used! Paper piecing the balloons was a great idea.

    I hope your house will be finished soon. Must be hard living around that. We are building a house but we don't have to live in it until it is finished. I can just imagine that fine dust flying around everywhere...

  2. After seeing your pics I can see why you've been away from blogging. You are going to be sooo busy. It will all be worth it in the end. I hope you have plans in there for your own crafty space!!
    Both of your cards are gorgeous. Love all the 3d effects and the colours.
