Scheduled posts and

. . . me are definitely not a marriage made in heaven! I had been such a good girl this week and scheduled both my Inspirational Card Sketches (ICS) and Fab'n'Funky DT cards to appear on the correct days as I knew I was very busy Tuesday and Wednesday this week. So, I gets in from work, potters around doing some domestic chores, makes food for the family and then thought, "large coffee and off for a blog".

What happens when I get on here . . . no posts . . . where are my Tuesday and Wednesday posts? I know I did them as I spent a while titivating them and dazzling you all with my witty banter (no comments there please!). Cheesed off to say the least but I did discover where they are . . . I hadn't checked the date correctly or should I say typed the date in correctly and my scheduled posts appeared last year ! ! ! I know, what a complete and utter numpty! I promise you all that when I teach I am definitely more "switched on" and not as dis-organised as this . . . !

OK here is now 2 posts squished into one . . .

Inspirational Card Sketches

Another great sketch from Dawn and I had great fun playing with some printed paper scraps I found whilst tidying up this week. A little over stamping and a few embellishments and my card is finished. I actually love the aged look to this card with minimal effort!

Fab'n'Funky Challenges

This weeks challenge is called "metal mania" and you can use anything metal/metallic on your project. I have used a large gold metal paper clap and some gold bradlets.

I have used the new 2S4U sketch as my inspiration for this card which is for a work colleague who has recently had a little girl. I couldn't put the baby's name on the card because they have yet to agree on an a name !

The image is from Di's Digi Designs who is this weeks sponsor on Fab'n'Funky. I love this cute baby and it is so quick and easy to colour.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

2S4U - sketch used for my card
Passion for Promarkers - theme this weeks is "Strawberries and Cream"
Little Red Wagon - to use brads . . . well mine are bradlets so I hope that counts!

Well gonna now dash and catch up with me blogging. Take care,
