House Mouse Madness!!!!

Well as well as doing challenges last night and early this morning I have sat and cut out some House Mouse decoupage Christmas images and decided to make some large 8x8 cards with them, anyway I thought before I put them away for my special peeps for Christmas I would show my blog friends them hope you like them they make me smile.

At Last Some Challenge Cards!

Well last night I sat and decoupaged, coloured in stamped images and finally made some cards for challenges. I have to say I have been diagnosed with Tennis Elbow this week and have found cutting out very difficult this weekend, feel like a old croc I need putting down- even after having a nice hot bath didn't relieve pain in elbow ouch. So without further chuntering on about my aches and pains- here are my cards. This is my first card this weekend and its for PapertakeWeekly which is the my take on their skertch and for the monthly challenge over at Bunny Zoe Crafts which was to add lace. This Hanglar and Stanglar image is so cute, and you will see further on I have used the girl image of the same vain. Hope you like it.
This is my card this week for Sketch Saturday, once again I have used a Hanglar and Stanglar image and used pinks and black on my card for a change, she too is so cute, isn't she?
This is my card for Cute Card Thursday which again was another sketch so here is my take on it and I have used some nice bright colours to cheer us all up in these dark cold nights.
This is my card for Penny Black Challenge which once again this week was a sketch and this is my take on their sketch, using my fave colour purple on this one and those cute little mice sitting under the big daisy, so cute.
This is my second card and its for Lili of the Valley and once again it was a sketch so I have made another Christmas Card with the image of their little Santa, and used Pro markers to colour him in and this is my take on their sketch.

So here is my last card that I have made for challenges this weekend and again its for two challenges first for Allsorts which was an easel card and also for Just Magnolia which was to make a Christmas Card using one of their images or a Hanglar and Stanglar. So here it is and I have kept mainly to greens and reds hope you like all my creations now just to link them all phew I am shattered ! Well happy crafting Arlinex

Feel I Need to Do Some Crafting

Hi everyone well its been a while since I updated my blog, still haven't got back into routine of crafting after being to work and I have found the whole experience this time going back to work very stressful, so much so- that now I have got the flu and was sent home ill on Thursday and told not to go back until after my hols which is now going to be near the end of  November. I feel really rough and want to get better, as from Thursday next week I am having few days away. Hopefully Thursday I will be popping down to Lincoln to see younger daughter and drop some supplies she has asked for, then mid afternoon on to Nottingham to call in on elderly housebound aunt and leaving my mum and dad there for few days. Then Friday morning I shall be up early to go to Walsall to see good friend whose grand-daughter is rather poorly with leukemia and then after lunch on to Stoke on Trent to spend weekend at eldest daughters and we shall be doing Cake Show NEC Saturday and then to hotel to be back to NEC on Sunday for Craft Show, so I must be well by then! Then when I get home hopefully my two sons will have decorated my lounge for me and then the following week am off to Scarborough for few days with my mum for her birthday treat. I am going to try and do some cards this weekend but will see how I feel. Kate and Sue have some lovely blog candy up for grabs just click on the link on my side bar. Happy Crafting everyone have a good weekend, love Arlinex
