So Excited Tonight!

Evening everyone, so excited tonight as my youngest son Daniel is on TV on Friday on the game show The Weakest Link, probably made an ass of  himself but its the taking part that matters, all I know is I had to wait to see the programme as he  never told me anything. Well I have had the all clear to return to work next week thank goodness, only on a phased return gradually building my hours back up but am so looking forward to it, have missed the team of nurses I work with on the community. However saying that could not craft yesterday as my balance was a bit off and making me a little dizzy so have been busy tonight, making some cards for challenges. Some were quite hard this week as I do not have anyone to send Valentine cards to or make them for, so have adapted them to what I hope will count in the challenges.

My first card this week is for Sketch Saturday, Promarker Challenge which was Love is in the air and also for Cupcake Challenge which was to use pink and red. So I have used this cute image of the little girl blowing heart shaped bubbles. added some flowers, sentiment and this is my take on the sketch too. Promarkers used were: pink carnation, antique pink, carmine, rose pink, meadow green, lime green, berry red, poppy,caramel, tan and blush.


My next card today is for Joanna Sheen Monthly Challenge which was also named Love is in the air and also for House Mouse Challenge which was a  love theme and to include more than one heart. So I have used a cute house mouse image of the mammy mouse repairing the teddy bear for the baby mouse, mending it with great love I am sure. I have added some red hearts, used some heart backing paper and also a heart charm and finished off with some flowers.


My last card of the night is for another couple of challenges and that is Allsorts which was free and easy and also Papertake Challenge which was anything goes. So this card is a birthday card for my best friend whose birthday is next week. I have used a Humphrey stamp which is Best Friends and used greens and lilacs to colour it in and kept the theme through the papers and flowers. I have also made up the inside of my card something I don't usually do but thought I would give it  a bash, what do you think? I think it looks okay and I hope my friend will love it.



Well everyone that is all for this blog post thank you all for dropping by and leaving your lovely comments, and I hope wherever you are this weekend you don't have too much of that white stuff called snow they have promised us today in the newspapers. If you do remember to keep warm and keep safe if you are out and about in it. Hugs and kisses Arlinexx
