I've had a scrap happy weekend.

and have a bit to share a little later on in this post.

This week has been a quiet one out here. As dh had hurt his back and was off work for most of the week but needed to go into work for an important meeting on Monday and couldn't drive, guess who had to take the day of work to play chauffeur. Me.

Tuesday was my usual scrapy morning at Just Scrapping where Lou gave me my latest dt pack. Yummy Prima papers. I have got one layout sorted and another laid out on the kitchen bench half done. Seeing as DH was of at home I didn't have to race of to pick up Missy from school so stayed to chat with lou and some of the girls after Lou's class for a while. I so enjoy my Tuesdays.

Wednesday and Thursday was work for me and Friday well that was a right off. I spent most of Thursday night tossing and turning with tummy pains and woke up to an upset tummy. Spent most of the day sleeping or on the toilet.

Lucky for me I felt better when I woke up on Saturday as I would hate to miss my monthly crop day at Made with Memories. I finished a layout that was half done, came home with two more layouts, two cards and another card half done.

Sunday was a lazy day at home and I did some more cards in between washing and then we went out for dinner.

Here is what I have done.



The latest challenge is to make up a card that was white with a touch of one colour.

Here is what I have done using one of my favorite stamps from the Lime Tart store.


Card patterns

This card is done for the latest sketch over at Card patterns.



I have made this one up for the monochromatic challenge at Cardvarks. I like the sketch from Card patterns so much I used it again.

and as you can tell from the three cards I am loving my nesties.


The Colour Room.

Is a new challenge blog I have stumbled on and here is my layout for Palette 3.

Blue, Mauve, white and green.

I used some of my Purple Onion stamps on this one.
Numbers from the Brocante set, Butterflies from the Vintage butterfly set on the same page and a Fanciful label.


Scrap the girls

It's been a while since I played along with this challenge blog.

For the challenge we had to use 5 buttons, 4 pps, 3 flowers, 2 pics and 1 alpha


Just scrapbooking

Here is the first of my dt layouts with the Prima papers that Lou gave me.


Copic Creations blog

This card I did up for the latest challenge which was to colour black hair. I love how the hair turned out but messed up on the little pink top the girl is wearing.

Here are the Copic colours I have used.
Top and bow-RV21,RV23
Skivy- BV00,BV02


Purple Onion

I needed to make up some more boy cards to hand out on Monday so I played around with some of my new birthday themed stamps to make these up.

The stamps are from the Doodled birthday set.

Here are the Copic Colours I used

Spots and tassle- B23,B24

I do have one more layout to share but that one will have to wait a week or so as it is for the next ASJ challenge.

Well that is all from me for now. As always thanks for popping in, any comments and till next time happy creating.

Wow, what amazing cards, they are simply exquisite, they are all perfect, I love love the layouts, especially the one with missy jumping, and her gorgeous bunny ears (Nate wears them too), by the way, love the pink top on your stamped image, you must be a perfectionist dear friend, your work is perfectly gorgeous.

Ps. So sorry to hear that your husband hurt his back, not sure if him being at home all day is such a great thing (as my mum would say once my dad retired). lol
