This week the theme is 'Congratulations'. Dan's cousin has just had a baby girl and I was planning a card for her so this theme came in handy!
I have used a Sugar Nellie image and the lovely Prima papers from Craft Den, my old faithful nesties for the frame and some sequin waste underneath. I double tied some coordinating ribbon round the paper and added some blingy bits of course. MS punch for the butterflies. Everything from Craft den except the buttons from stash.
I also made an attempt at a man's card this week for my uncle. I used some graphic 45 paper, a Tim Holtz embossing folder, Paper Artsy bird die and a Maya Road flourish, painted in gold dabber paint, with a Tim adage ticket. I don't normally do grungy, but I am quite pleased with this, I hope my uncle likes it. Everything from Craft Den of course!

I am really struggling with taking good photos now as the light is so rubbish so I hope you can see her. There is a strip of lace down the right hand side, which is not very easy to see. The tiny snowflakes I punched with a free punch which came with one of the card making magazines this month, I cant remember which one. I added a dot of viva pearl pen to the centres.
Everyhing at Craft Den. Hope you can join our swop this month!

I hope you like them, I had serious fun this week making them, AND the house is clean, LOL!!!
This is Emma and one of her famous grumpy faces. I love my dad's face, he is finding it very amusing. I completed this at the lovely crop we had at Craft Den on Thursday night. The papers are Bo Bunny Kitchen Spice. The very big flower is a gigantic punch which Lynne has just got in, in the retro flower range, love it!.
Here is Emma playing with Dan's headphones this summer. The papers are Bo Bunny Olivia. I have used Tim Holtz tattered rose Sizzix die for the flowers, which is fab. and some bling of course!
Last but not least this is Emma at about 18 months playing with my mum's cat in the garden. These are Prima papers and they are soo lovely. Lynne has some new ones in last week. I have used the mega punch again and a sizzix die I got in their sale last year which I love as the huge leaves in this page.
Everything from Craft Den as usual!
Have a lovely weekend!

I have done another scrapbook page for my entry this week. What with one thing and another, I have not been to scrapbooking at Craft Den for ages and I have this major urge to fill my house with layouts. It will pass but I'll be busy scrapbooking in the meantime!
Here is the lovely Em, playing in the snow last Jan and the sign I bought for her to go in the garden just to make sure that 'you know who' didn't miss her at Christmas. It was quite easy when she was much smaller, she had no concept of Christmas, never mind Father Christmas. Now we have to make sure he visits and he knows what she wants. She is very worried about how he will come down the chimney. We just tell her that he is magic, which all 4 year olds accept without question. The threat that he is watching and she has to be good is also quite handy!
I have used the new Magnolia papers just in at Craft Den and Bo Bunny Winter Joy paper. I created the edge by simply cutting along the criss cross pattern and punching a hole with my crop-o-dile. The snowflakes are cut from glittercard using a new MD die, again from CD this week. I love it, the snowflakes are just yummy. I finished it with some textured and starry ribbon and some letters from stash covered in stickles. Everything from Craft Den, except the letters.

The theme this week is 'Emboss it!' I visited Lynne this afternoon to get my mojo back and I really enjoyed doing the page so I think it worked!!

The theme this week is The Letter B
I am having that kind of week again. I have been to the vets today with my poorly boy (he is now nearly 17lb, I hardly feed him, he must have a vast network of catflap restaurants he visits in the minute amount of time he spends not sleeping), been to the lauderette (because of poorly boy, nuff said), had the roofer around again to look at our leaking roof, which he described as 'one of those jobs' sigh, he told me to give him a ring if it leaks again. "I have you number now, I can ignore it!!" Nice... I hope he was joking... and been to one garage now to get a quote on the damage to Dan's car as one of our neighbours hit it while we were away for the weekend. Roll on Saturday..
Anyhoo, here is my entry for this week. I have 'had a go' at grungy look. I love grungy, I love looking at it when someone else does it, but I find it soo hard. In my core I like pretty things and bright colours I think, but I hope you like it. Just loving that butterfly die.

Well what else would the theme be this week on Anything Goes Challenge Blog!
I have been rather happily making Halloween cards for a few weeks with some Bo Bunny and Graphic 45 papers from Craft Den. The Bo Bunny papers are actually from last year, but they are so yummy I bought extra to use this year as well.
