ABC .... Let's start all over again!


Good morning, and here we are at the start of a brand new alphabet! Thankyou so much for all of you who have taken part - we would like to thank each and every one of you .... without you taking part each week we just wouldn't have this great blog challenge.

So let's get started again, right at the beginning


A is for Anniversary

We are going to be a teensy bit kind and allow valentine/love themed cards this week too, so you have no excuse not to join in. There are some gorgeous papers up for grabs for one lucky winner - check out the blog and DT cards for inspiration whilst you are there.



Now, I told my mum on the telephone last night that I had made a card without a single flower on it - I don't think she believed me, lol .... but look .... not a single bloom!!! I followed a great sketch by Katharina on this weeks High Hopes blog (obviously couldn't enter my card but loved the sketch so much that I had to do it!). I think this may end up being a card for my hubby - think he would appreciate the lack of flowers :o)


I have coloured, as usual, with my prismas, papers from BG Two Scoops pack. Made my sentiment on the computer again and have used these cute card candies in each corner of the image. All finished off with a pretty organza ribbon. This only took me about 2 hours - this is a quick card for me!!! I am really pleased with it - think it is the BG papers, they just seem to make me like my cards more, lol.
Being cheeky again and entering my card for a couple of challenges ... (well, I do miss out not joining in as much - would give up work but wouldn't have any pennies to spend!) ...
Dutch Dare ... Create a love themed card using no pink or red
Lili of the Valley ... Creations for men

Right, that's your lot for now. Going to spend my day off doing as little housework as possible ... as much crafting as possible and then try and fit a Starbucks and cake in somewhere in between!! Have a great day :o)
