Saturday, 18 April 2015


Good morning and welcome to my blog.  It's Saturday morning and it's dark, it's raining very heavily and I can hear thunder I'm just waiting for the lightning.
I think that it's a good time to stay at home and craft and my boys want to go out shopping for new Soccer boots, I think tomorrow is another day.

Today I'm posting a card and supporting a dear friend of mine and ex colliege of mine, you may know her it's Jeannie from Dragonfly Journeys and she's starting up a new challenge and you can fine it here.  I know that I don't qualify for this challenge as I live out of the US but it's nice to be able to support one of your friends.  I won't be able to do this every week but because it's her first challenge here I am.

Challenges I'm entering:

Card Recipe:

1. Base: White SU
2. Coloured Card: Aqua American Craft Card
3. Design Papers: Rosies Studios
4. Dragonfly from a colouring page

5. Colour medium: Copics, Stickles, black embossing pen.
6. Tools: Cuttlebug, Spellbinders Lace Circle, Classic Circle, Pop Dots, Glue Dots.

7. Sentiment: Rain or Shine by Cuddly Buddley
8. Gems: From my stash
9. Decorative corner from my stash

10. The inside of my card and the back of the card.

Take care wishing you all a great week and happy crafting.

Hi Kathie!!!! Gosh this card is absolutely stunning, and I just couldn't be happier that you joined in my challenge. I don't know all of the mailing costs, but maybe you can email me with a guess and then I can open the challenges up to everyone if it's not too crazy. To be honest, I just wasn't sure.

I miss you, and creating with you, and it truly warms my heart that you found the time in your busy life to join me. I do hope you will again. Here's my email address; jeannie.thomas@yahoo.com
