Blogging with a baby!

I am sitting here, typing one handed with my adorable 4 week old nepew. I have surprised myself at how quickly I'm getting this post done but won't be writing much folks ! Phew, I hear you cry. Also before I forget, apologies for the photo . . I took the card with me to Wales as simply ran out of time at home but only just remembered (as I was preparing to upload) that this laptop can't edit photos . . . . so this card is in it's rare beauty mode . . . hee, hee, hee!

Image: Some Odd Girl
Papers: Mag freebie
Ribbon & button froim stash
Sentiment: my own dotty handwriting!

The theme at "Fab'n'Funky" challenges this week was "Buttons and Bows" and the lucky DT were allowed to use an image from this weeks sponsor . . Some Odd Girl. I chose this monster one and have added extra eyelashes to her ! The papers are a freebie from a mag as I a while ago I was moaning about the free papers and afterwards thought my criticism might be a little harsh, so decided to have a play. This is why my monster is as brightly coloured as she is because I took inspiration from the papers.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Simon Says - going dotty.


OMG . . not blogged for sooooooooo long!`

Nearly died of shock when I saw the date of the last time I blogged . . . eeekkkkk, gulp and whoops! In my defence I have been extremely busy and haven't had a spare moment to myself however, now that school has broken up (HUGE yippee!) I can get down to some serious R&R and also give my crafting stash a glimpse of the daylight . . . !

Well I did want to share my Fab'n'Funky project but my camera is kaput and I am waiting for my old camera to charge up so I can use that instead, so I am going to begin by sharing my DT cards for the Polka Doodles challenge this week . . ooohhhh, should add photographed a while ago before NEW camera decided it no longer liked me!

The theme this week is "Christmas in July" and was set by the lovely Kris. I have made an easel card using the new Paper Boutiques 2 CD, Creative Christmas for all the elements for my card.

The Candy Shop image comes in various sizes and I have printed the image, plus decoupage layers, in A4 and then used the layered image on an 8" x 8" card. The edging was created using my Martha Stewart punch . . . (hint, hint Nikki . . when is the loops corner punch coming back into stock ?!?!?) . . . I have created snow layers from torn card and highlighted the edges with the Baby Blue Promarker. You will even notice that the "Glitter Phobe" as actually used glitter on her card . . . OK a smidgen of the stuff but hey, small steps and all that.

Ooooohhhhh before I forget, you must pop over to the Polka Doodles blog to checkout the MEGA competition that is occurring right now . . you can win the entire set of AquaMarkers from Letraset @ a RRP of £79.99. These are the new and improved AquaMarkers.

Well off to refill my coffee mug and catch up with everyone . . . I have missed so much that I think this will take me a while . . . am I bothered . . . no!
