Hello! 2 new challenges 4 me! And an awardYay!


 Hello to you my crafty friends,
I made a card using Stampotique images using the Quail cube again, just love the little birdies. I also used a Spellbinders border die the Fleur di lis  I can see that I'm going to use this a lot, love the shape of it.

This is my first entry for the Stampotique Designers challenge and also for Move Along With The Times challenge.








The Stampotique requirement is a sketch  this time and Move Along with the Times is 'Anything Goes'

So I'm hoping I've fulfilled all the necessary conditions:~D









Then I was given an award by a very lovely crafty lady Jenny her very interesting and inspirational blog is HERE  Jenny is a talented lady and does lots of different crafts, card making, scrap booking and she takes a mean photo too, check her out :0) xxx
Thank you Jenny for this award and your really kind words, you are a star!
I am supposed to tell you 5 things about myself, well I did this last year and here is the confessional, you need a warning though, you're not gonna like me after this, I'm a BAD mum!Actually I've mentioned 7 things, I could erase my worst sins but nah it's a warts and all expose, bite the bullet mustavcoffee!
Now I'm also supposed to give this award to 5 more versatile bloggers but I've found that many people don't want to or haven't got the time or for whatever reason do not participate so if I may, I would like to offer this to

Esther at Crafty Effusions gorgeous creations and multi talented lady

Tejal at Creative Expressions wonderful crafting from the floor! but seriously Tejal creates beautiful cards, gift books and has a passion for butterflies:0)

Sylvia-Anne at Poppy's Papercraft Patch, beautiful creations and such a warm welcome every visit.

Sandra at Stamping for Pleasure So much fun with this lovely lady, she often makes me LOL and does fabulous cards, always well worth a visit.

And Last but not least  Mass of Hair at her blog So Much to Learn I love her enthusiasm and great humour in her creations, we all have so much to learn and we never stop doing so but I love that she uses that as her blog title, fantastic.

Thanks Ladies, so much inspiration but please don't feel you have to participate, it's good to give you a shout out :0) xxx

What a lovely creation. I was not sure if it was a card, so I called it a creation; either way it's beautiful!
The little birds are so cute and a very unusual stamp design...very sweet little fellows; you have done them proud!

Esther said...

ooh....thanks for the award, I too am always a bit wary of passing them on as I know a lot of people don't participate but I love receiving - so nice to be appreciated!! I hope you won't be offended if I don't pass on tho - I'm rubbish at choosing and never know who likes them and who doesn't!

I love you card - that die cut is gorgoues - something else to add to my wish list I think!!

Have a great Bank holiday, Esther xx

I love what you've done with this little chap! And I love the tiny pearls on the background - you must be very patient. (I hope you didn't mind me calling you Mustava - it makes you sound all exotic! Although naturally I see the need for coffee too!) Congratulations on the award and rest assured you're not alone - I lose the car on a regular basis! Vx
