The Cute card thursday challenge this week was Sparkle. You are going to have to trust me-it does sparkle on the trees! I made 6 similar last week, 3 blue and 3 red/green in an effort to use up craft stash and not buy anymore xmas bits........................................................

Since then I have bought a pad of dovecraft paper and 5 packs of xmas stamps-so the spending ban begins again now!

My favourite picture this week came from my 6yr old niece Charlie-evidently this is how I now look!

She is so excited about the baby and keeps asking questions-has she got eyelashes yet? what colour are her eyes? hehehe

She's a talented girl-she beat me on the rock cake competetition yesterday-I made 13 but she and Nanny made 15 (grandad did admit some were a bit on the small side!)

I've finally finished my CJ to send off this week so today's list is 2 bookmarks for a swap on Carolyn's and a birthday card with a guitar on-wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by

More thank you cards

2 more done-only 6 left to go-although I keep remembering more people I need to make them for. We have the HMSA weekend on the 19-21st of September and I'm making the thank you cards for all the speakers and helpers

This one fits the DCM midweek embossing challenge-and Joanne's challenge on Carolyn's forum to make a card with a black background-embossed with the swiss dots cuttlebug folder

and this was made using Di Hickmans template this week-have to say its my favourite so far-the stamp (free from Craft stamper magazine) fits the flowers on the paper pretty well

We are off to the New Forest on Sunday for a few days so I need to get the rest made before then-or I'll be in a mad panic-what did we do before Challenges came along to provide inspiration?!
