This Weeks Challenges So Far........

Good morning from a cold grey Sunderland and as is usual I am on holiday! This week I have done nothing but attend appointments starting with physio on Monday on my hip and for that had to go through to Durham, then I got back home had a cuppa and then off to another appointment in town. Then Tuesday it was the gp at 8am argh- then the poorly cat to the vets where appointment was 11.10 and it was 12.30 before I got out of there, then it was off to Weight Watchers. I have to say I have been going to WW for four weeks since joining and have lost 5% of my body weight and a stone in weight and I am thrilled to bits. Next week dosen't look that good either as dentist Monday and Tuesday, to have major work and teeth out and Wednesday cat beck to vets! So hopefully in between all of that I would like to go out for a couple of days, somewhere. Anyway I did some crafting last night for some challenges and sorted my craft bag out so here is my first card and that is for Cute Card Thursday which was spring flowers. So this is my card with one of my fave images on and for this card I have used mainly greens and oranges, added a sentiment and some roses, a quite simple card but sometimes that is all you need.
My next card is for Just Magnolia and that was to use lace on your card. So you may need your sunglasses on here as I have used some vibrant striped papers and colours pink and purples, the image is a Hanglar Stanglar image. This is an easel card, so I have used some purple lace added a sentiment and crystals and a flower.
The next card is for Winter Wonderland and their theme this week was pretty in pink and the Christmas card had to be pink. So I have used this cute Humphrey image and he is coloured all in pink. I have added some little white snowballs on the corners, a sentiement and used Stickles for the snow, I think this is so cute!
This next card is for two challenges Sketch Saturday and Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and their theme was a man card, so with Fathers Day coming soon I have made my card with that in mind, gosh getting ahead of myself here! The sketch is the first part of the challenge and I have used a Country Companions stamp which I stamped while I was at my daughters. So with the image in mind I have used various papers with the brown theme, added a sentiment and some brown gingham ribbon.
Lastly and I nearly forgot about this card and it's for the Penny Black Challenge-this week their theme was spots and stripes. So used this stamp one of their newer range of London, I have used spots and stripes for the backing papers added some flowers and a sentiment. I thought when I had finished it, the colours are a bit patriotic blue, red and white.
I have to say I do not like the way the blogger system is now uploading stuff I found it very confusing and twice as long to do my blog today. Well that's it so far this week thanks for dropping by and hope you all have a good day whatever you are up to. Hugs and kissess Arlinex

Hi Arline, beautiful cards love the colours and layout of the London card but my fave has to be the sugar nellie 'Daisy' card but then I'm biased as she was one of the first stamps I ever bought! Thank you for leaving such sweet comments on my blog and am honoured you chose to follow me it means a lot. I do hope you manage to grab some days out and perhaps some crafty time. Take care, Ann-Marie xxx
