Bye Bye to Bullies!

Hi everyone I have great news yesterday my daughter at Lincoln University signed a new rental contract at a new house and she will have the keys 1st of July so I now might at last, get some sleep tonight as since last week and her news I have been unable to sleep for worrying about her. She seems a lot happier in herself when I spoke to her yesterday on the phone so now mum has been asked to get some boxes together for her, as some of her stuff will have to return home in July, as her new room is only a single, but I would rather have her stuff home and her happy than unhappy. I will be seeing her next week when all her exams are over, and she comes home for a while. So that will be lovely and I will be able to give her a big hug then and make sure she is really okay. So today I have been to work and made a few cards for a couple of challenges when I got home. My first card today is for Penny Black Challenge and also Papertake Weekly Challenge and their challenges were both the same and that was In the Garden. So using a Penny Black image of the hedgehog in a plant pot and I added some ribbon through the die cut and made a bow, added a sentiment and some roses from Wild Orchid crafts.
My next card today is for Sketch Saturday and Allsorts. Allsorts challenge was a card for a man/boy. So this time I have used a Crafters Companion image of this little dog asleep in the baseball boot cut or what? I have used mainly blues in this sketch, added a sentiment also from Crafters Companion and added some silver stars to complete the sketch.
Finally today is my card for Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which was I Love You Mum and also for Promarkers Challenge this week which is Anything Goes. So I have used a cute Humphrey stamp with this little flower in his trunk. I have used a small round card and used blues and reds for this card. Because it is only a small card I had to find a wee sentiment to fit on it. I have added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts to finish it off. Promarkers used Cool Grey 1 and 2, Denim Blue, Berry Red, Green, Yellow and Tan.
That's it for now. Thanks for dropping by. Love and hugs Arlinexx
