Purple and Yellow at Lili's Little Fairies!

I hope you can join us this week over at Lili's Little Fairies as we have a cracker of a challenge chosen by the lovely (but crackers) Squirrel! It's purple (my favourite) and yellow - what is not to love? Add to this the fact that we are being sponsored by the lovely ladies over at Dreamees and you have the chance to win a £10 gift voucher and really, what excuse could you have not to play along?

So, this is my offering for the week:

Image and sentiment from LOTV and I'm back to those delish Bella backing papers from Wild Rose Studio. Super yum. The flowers are from WOC and the butterfly is a Magnolia DooHickey. The heart dies are from Memory Box and were bought because fellow Fairy Lorraine B leads me astray. It doesn't take much!

I'm clearing all my craft stuff out of the study/craftroom as we have a new carpet coming on Friday and then we're off to get wardrobes and storage for the bump's bedroom. My husband caught me with a HUGE bag of craft CDs and one of stamps and said 'HOW MUCH HAVE YOU SPENT?' To the untrained eye it possibly did look quite a bit but I am sure you would have applauded my crafty restraint. It really isn't THAT much. I haven't mentioned the stuff I have stored in my wardrobe. Or tallboy. Or in the drawer of the bed. That can be our secret!!!!!

Enough of my random ramblings. I hope to see your fab purple and yellow creations and hope that you have a great week. Pop round if you fancy helping with a bit of DIY! Hugs, Jayne xx

Girls, Girls, Girls over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog!

Oooh, a fab challenge over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog this fortnight - all things girly! Could there be a more tempting, easy peasy challenge? Frankly, I think not! And, with a £15 Sheenie voucher up for grabs, who could resist?

I am still battling ridiculous computer problems so Sheenie Paula sent me some images from the fabulous Daisy and Friends CD to work with. This one is quite CAS for me!

I coloured the image with copics and used spun sugar distress ink around the edges. The papers are from  Wild Rose Studio - Annabelle's Meadow I think! I really have got to stop buying paper, seriously, we are clearing out the third bedroom to turn it into a nursery and I have to re-home all my craft stuff. I'm having to hide it everywhere!!!!! It's not looking good.

Back to the card. The butterfly is a spellbinders die I got for my birthday :D The banner is the La La Land beautiful die that I could just not resist. Well, it doesn't take up much room and is the least of my worries!!!!

The DT have made some scrumptious cards this week and I hope that you have time to check them out. Thank you for visiting me - I do at least realise I am a really terrible blogger! Biggest of hugs, Jayne xx

Thank you over at Lili's Little Fairies!

This post starts with yet another apology! My daughter was sick all night on Tuesday and is off school at the mo - ooh what a jolly 40th birthday I will be having today!! She's mad keen on dominos so I guess I'll be getting soundly thrashed in that department!
Over at the Fairies we would like you to make a 'thank you' card - and PLEASE could you use a LOTV image/sentiment. We had lots of fab entries this week but lots didn't use an LOTV image :(

In brief (sorry, need to get back to the patient) the LOTV image is coloured with copics and the papers are by Melissa Frances. So sorry it's another quick post - will try and catch up with the blog when things are more settled here.

Quick update - HUGE thanks to Christine, Lorraine, Squirrel and Kate for your completely fabulous cards! I have the most gorgeous selection of cards ever! Mwah xx

Hugs, Jayne xx

Lace over at Lili's Little fairies!

Huge apologies that my post is both late and half finished! I decided to start painting the baby's room but as it's still stuffed full of furniture it was no easy task!! Still I've painted one wall and now can barely move!!! Ah, the joy :)

This week we have two Stamposaurus stamps to give away and all we want you to do is use some lace on your card. Easy peasy! This is my offering:
I think I only stopped throwing embellishments at this one when I ran out of room :) Still, I had fun! I used my new La La Land heart banner die - it's just yum scrum!

Apologies to leave the post unfinished but I now have to hot foot it to school to read with a bunch of reluctant 5/6 year olds. Let's hope they all stay above the table this week. Big sigh.

Hugs, Jayne xx

Kraft it over at A Little Bit Crafty

This month our challenge over at A Little Bit Crafty is to use kraft card on your project or card. We had a huge amount of entries last month and I'm super glad that the challenge was so successful particularly as Paula has worked so hard setting it all up :))

Our sponsors this month are:

£10.00 voucher at Clare Curd Crafts
£7.50 voucher at Hobbycutz

What more persuading do you need to join in?

So, this month I went for another Saturated Canary image - one for the boys, 'Skater Boy'. I've coloured with copics and the papers are from a freebie We R Memory Keepers paper stack called Travel Light. A bit brighter than my usual offerings - blame the hormones!! The little Kraft tickets are by Maya Road and the stars were cut with the Star X-Cut nestie dies.
I nearly posted without adding photos of my card again! What is with me at the moment!!!

Sorry I haven't been around lately. I keep falling asleep on the sofa in the middle of the day!! I'm not sleeping at night because I keep getting a weird pain under my rib. Must be my age :)

Hope you get the chance to join us this month and please check out my DT sisters awesome offerings :D
Hugs, Jayne xx
