Time To Relax

Good morning everyone, a quick post today as I have a lot to do this week, plus I'm working overtime at work as we are all getting into holiday mode now lol!!

Today we have a lovely challenge over at 'Papertake Weekly' Dawny would like to see lots of spots and dots somewhere on your card and there is a lovely prize up for grabs too by the lovely Katharina at Whiff of Joy stamps.

The sentiments and the papers are from LOTV.  The image itself is from one of the sketch pads that LOTV brought out a while ago that you could colour yourself, but I don't think they are doing them any more as I can't find a link, but they do sell the pre-coloured art pad and also the lovely stamp which is called 'Put Your Feet Up'.  I have coloured it with my Prisma Pencils.

Products Used
Image - LOTV Sketch Pad
Papers - LOTV 'Winter Wishes' by Mary Fran
Hessian Ribbon - The Ribbon Girl
Watch Charm - Hobby House

Do pop along to 'Papertake Weekly' and see what the rest of the team have made, there's always lots of fab ideas and inspiration from these lovely girlies!!!

I'm sorry I haven't been around to see everyone recently, but life has been a little hectic, hopefully when I get back from my hols, life will return to some kind of normality (well maybe lol!!).

You all take care,
Love and Hugs,

Time To Have Fun

Good morning everyone, I'm running around like a headless chicken at the moment lol!! Deborah moves down to Worcester next week and then two days later we go to Spain on our holidays yaaayh!! I think we will all be glad to get on the ferry and just relax and not have to think about anything!! We have an over night stay on the ferry so it will give us all time to recover from the last few months, we have had lots of ups and downs, and some disappointments but that is all behind us now and we are going to have 18 days of sunshine, beaches lovely food and lots of fun!!. We are going overland in the Land Rover, our first stop is only one hour away from the Ferry terminal as we don't dock until 18.00 hrs.. on our second stop over we will be staying in Madrid for two days. Candice loves cities and she has studied Spanish this year so it will give her an insight to what the people and the culture are like... then we are off too Calpe for a whole 7 days in a villa, it has it's own swimming pool and we are not far from the sea a two minute walk and we will be on lovely beaches, so, so looking forward to that... then we start to travel back and have a night at Cuenca where the famous hanging houses are.. a bit scary but the scenery looks out of this world, then we go to a lovely place called La Posada De Gallegos for Deborah's birthday... then onto Larendo for two nights before we catch the ferry home. I will post some photo's when I get back as I think we are going to see some amazing sights!

Hope your still with me, as it's time for another challenge over at Papertake Weekly, and being the first Tuesday of the month it's Anything Goes, there is an OPTION to use some torn paper on your card if you want too...

Liam loves Lightening McQueen it is one of his favourite characters, it is very glittery but red is a devil of a colour to photograph!!.... The image is off the internet and I coloured it with promarkers and prisma pencils and added two googly eyes!.. I die cut the letters and embossed them with red glittery embossing powder and attached them too a spellbinders ribbon die... the papers are from Bearly Mine and the lovely sentiment is from LOTV, who are our sponsors this week, so do come and play along with us and you could win a lovely £10 Voucher...

Challenges Entered
To do later

Did you buy any goodies from LOTV's  new Christmas collection!!  I wanted everything but I didn't come up on the lottery this week lol!! but I did buy a few nice stamps, and the sentiments, and gorgeous papers, not a lot of time for crafting at the moment, but can't wait to have a play, and I'm sure lots of goodies will fall into my basket over the next few months too lol!!! ... That's it from me but do pop along to Papertake Weekly and see what my lovely teamies have done... you all take care and have a lovely week!
Love and Hugs,
