Been away too long from Blogland!

Good evening everyone well I haven't been on my little blog since 1st July! I just don't know where the time has gone, work has been manic and I have been away to Stoke on Trent for two weeks to look after DD cat while she and her hubster went off to Canada and guess what she had 90 degrees heat, we had rain rain and more rain. Its good job Olympics were on or we would have been so bored. Didn't Team GB do us proud? I don't like much sport but I do like to watch the Games. Well today I came home from work and decided to do some crafting but that didn't go as plan either you know when you have a great card idea in your head and it dosen't come together well I have had one of those sessions today but I decided not to start again but to try and make the best of one of my cards. Unfortunately I cannot show it yet as it is for next months Christmas Crafting Challenge and it won't be on that site until 1st September never mind, will show you what else I have done today instead.
My first card is for Saturday Secret Crafter which was to use a circular card and also for House Mouse Challenge 126 and their challenge was Double Trouble so I have used this image of the little mouse getting a got scrub from his mum in huge teacup. I have kept it quite simple just added some ribbon and some roses to finish it off and haven't added a sentiment then I can use it for any occassion.
My next card is for Penny Black Monthly Challenge and that was also Double Trouble so I have used this images of these cute friends in a Union Jack Mini, I hope this will be okay as there is three of them not two! I have used reds and blues mainly added a sentiment and some little Papermaina flowers.
This is my final card for tonight and it is my take on the Sketch Saturday Challenge and also for Promarkers Challenge whose theme is transport this week. So I have used a image from Hanglar Stanglar of little girl riding her bicycle and used dusky pink theme for the back ground colours, added a sentiment and some buttons to finish it off. Promarkers used Blush, China Blue, Denim Blue, Tan, Caramel, Sandstone, Pumpkin, Berry Red, Amethyst, Cool Grey1&2 and Ice Grey 1&2. Well that's all for tonight, thanks for dropping by and leaving your lovely comments and hopefully will get some more crafting done over the Bank Holiday weekend. Love and Hugs Arlinexx
