Keeping Warm Indoors Today!

Good afternoon everyone  from the North East of England- its freezing here today, so haven't ventured out-well only as far as the back gate that is to open it for the window cleaner. So my mum has gone off to my brother  for three weeks so I am just chilling. After being off work for quite a number of weeks after having an operation I was all ready to get back next week but now have UTI and Conjunctivitis so have now been given the 13th possibly to return to work.So as its Wednesday its craft day for me although I will probably craft tomorrow and the next day too. I have been to my local craft shop this week to stock up and bought some of the Portebello Road Papers from Papermania for a project I am going to attempt but will have to keep that under wraps for now!

Well my first card this week is for Lili of the Valley and it was to make a masculine card. I had just recently purchased this stamp of the little boy playing cricket, so came in very handy for this weeks challenge. Being for a male didn't add too much and especially didn't add flowers, which I usually love to do but I did add a little cotton wool ball for his ball and added a cute little ladybird onto the grass.


My next card today is for Sketch Saturday which is of course their sketch, Lollipop which was anything goes and finally for Secret Crafter which was to add ribbons. So I have used Lili of the Valley image and used yellows and oranges -nice spring colours. I have added some checkered orange ribbon and some plain yellow ribbon.


My final card for today is for Penny Black Challenge which was floral frenzy and  Allsorts Challenge which was one or more hearts. So I have used this cute image of the little hedgehogs in the flower pots. I have added some pink flowers and some hearts purchased at my local craft shop and added a PB sentiment too. On the corners I have added some pink pearls. Its quite a girly card being pink but i love pinks on cards.


Well that is it for now. Son has just gone out to work at local cinema so have the night to myself . Pjs on I think and then may sit and cut some decoupage out whilst watching TV. Will be back again soon . Thanks for dropping by have a lovely evening. Hugs and Kisses Arlinex
