Another Crafty Wednesday!

Afternoon all. Well so far so good I decided at the start of the year to make Wednesday my craft day and so far I have stuck to it, although don't know if I will be still keeping up with it when I go back to work in the next couple of weeks, but if I am not to shattered I will. I hope everyone has had a good week and lovely weekend and my word another one is nearly upon us. My brother is coming this weekend from Sussex as it is his 50th next weekend and he is supposed to be taking my mum and dad down to look after their pets, as his family have booked a cruise for him. However I cannot see that happening now-  as my mum has severe arthritis in her knee, so much so that she now cannot walk on it and we have been back  and forward to GP in the past seven days, only for him to tell her the same thing that there is nothing other than pain killers to take for it but she doesn't seem to be taking this in. So although I have found the last few weeks with her very stressful and was really looking forward to having a break by her going to my brothers I do not think that will happen now, oh well onwards and upwards as these things are sent to try us. Its a good job I have my crafting otherwise I would go insane!

Well after my rant its back to this weeks challenges and my first card this week is for two challenges Sketch Saturday so I have used their sketch and Secret Crafter Challenge and their theme this week was food and drink. So my image is a cute Humphrey one of two little elephants enjoying a ice cream sundae together. I have used a turquoise as my main colour them and made it into a Thank You card for a change.

This next card is for Cupcake Challenge and that was All you need is Love. So I found this image from Hanglar Stanglar of this young lady with my fave flower, a Carnation. I have again used blue as my theme but a different shade from my last card. Kept it quite simple with a bow, sentiment and some bling, hope you like it?

My next card is for I Love Promarkers Challenge and their theme this week was pinks and purples, two of my fave colours to use on a card. This is also for Allsorts Challenge which was needles and pins. So once again I have used a Hanglar Stanglar image of a little girl with her knitting basket, complete with knitting needles, wool and scissors. Added a sentiment, some lace and a few flowers. The colours I  used were: blush, dusty pink, blossom, antique pink, cerise, pink carnation, baby pink, lilac, amethyst, bluebell, orchid, sandstone and caramel.

Finally my last card for now is my fave this week and it is for Lollipop Challenge and that was Wings on it. So here I have used yet another cute Hanglar Stanglar image and I have used black red and white for my theme on this card. Added some flowers, a sentiment and some pearls. I hope you like it.

Well that is all for now folks as I have run out of double sided tape, Pinflair Glue and Flowersoft glue this week so can't do anymore crafting until I have popped to craft shop tomorrow to stock up. I have never been so low on materials! So its bye for now and thanks for dropping by. Hugs and kisses Arlinex
