Now SBS8 have a challenge and its a sketch from CPS, used K& Co papers and not forgetting Tilda.
I've been really good have found some soppy verses for Mother's Day and sorted out the inserts and they're ready to go, plus some new Anniversary words for those cards too. The best sites I go to our imag-e-nation and verseit there was a couple more but I noticed they no longer working.

When I discovered that this Tilda went with Tough Edwin, I have waited patiently for it to arrive in the few stores that stock magnolias but I kept missing out so I ordered from Magnolia themselves. My fingers hurt where they've been crossed so hard but they arrived super quick just over a week and I had to used him and although they take longer I'm getting some nice results with my prismacolours. So I've used the magnolia couple using the sketch from Nicola of My Paper World papers are chatterbox and flowers by prima.
So exciting day for me I have wait in for the Plummer and a Glazer.

I've booked for the first Scrap-a-ganza in the UK at Stratford in June and it sounds like quite a few of the girls from the crop are going too but will have to wait to confirm who at the next crop.

Now this little gem is thanks to Scrapdolly and if you use the link on her name it will take you to her blog where the instructions are, while you are there check out what she has made for DCM challenge recycle plastic. The CD holder would actually be ideal for Mothers Day, which if you're in the UK its on Sunday. I have almost copied Scrapdolly's except from the papers which I have used 3 bugs.
And FairyKaren I'm waiting for my OH to take it to the PO cos its needs weighing it might be quicker for me to give to you at the crop!

On my travels through blogland someone mentioned ( can't remember which blog so if it was you thank you) the plastic wrapper on the new cuttlebug folders now we all know I've some of them, then Marlou guest designer on DCM this week wrote that she used her cuttlebug embossing folders on the plastic, so I've done that too. All of the blogs showing off their wonderful creations using nestabilities, so had to get some. Lastly many thanks to Isa and her wonderful tutorial on Prisamcolour pencils, I was ready to scream because I couldn't colour as well as I watercoloured and I've warned you all about my patience. So here's my first Tilda using prismscolours that didn't end up in the bin. Now this little pink darling is for the Sugar Nellie Pink challenge, using DCWV papers, may be a bit late with this one.

Song title from sound track of Saturday Night Fever or Grease as LO title - Two photos - Something shiney - To use white on LO
Finding song title was hard but finally decided on We go together from Grease, obvious two photos, shiny brads and white cardstock. The papers are October Afternoon left over from my Debby page last week and the stitching was using bazzill stitching thingy that I got from a Scrapagogo kit. I also used a pagemap sketch, not quite the same but certainly starts the ball rolling.

Had a day yesterday where most of what I tried to do went in the bin, I've lost count how many times I tried to make this duck, either I smudged it or it looked messy but eventually I pleased with this one and I've finally cut into the gorgeous imaginisce card that I've been stroking for weeks. This is for the DCM little extra which is to use orange and lemon, the ribbon I copied from Fran's card that she sent me.

It's very quiet on the home front, DD is back working as an Assistant Manager at the pub she used to work at (she needed the money, they needed someone reliable) no craft parcels for me although I have to thank Samm for the link to Magnolia stamp club, this would be fine but I had already placed an order with them, fingers crossed they arrive with no probs. Thinking about it still waiting for my new cuttlebug folders from Craft U Love.

Yessssss I've scrapbook managed to do this LO for the weekly challenge on UKS, I used Heidi Grace papers that were with a Scrapagogo kit ages ago that I hadn't used. Unfortunately I had a bit of a sort out and dismantled the kits and put them away so now I had to go and have a look if I could work out which belong to what.
I have two Layouts almost finished for MIL book.

They call it a template, I call it a sketch and we all know I can't resist a sketch, no will power you know. So this is my card for DCM challenge, daisy bucket papers, nestabilities and simply friends stamps that is one of my favs. So once again no scrapbooking. I've been a bit behind on some on of the blogs I check out so I've caught up with them and blow me some have links to more blogs with sketches. I feel like a star trek episode with the borg "Resistance is Futile," but resist I have although Nicola at PaperWorld sketch #4 is out. But you didn't hear it from me LOL.
At Scrapbuddies at Mychett Community Centre if you passing and what to see what its like pop in we don't bite. At least there I might Scrapbook.
Now for the really really good news, I won the blog candy on Fran's blog Fran's hubby choose my little book not sure what the fold is called. So I've been going around with smirk on face all day.
So I leave you with Di Hickman Feb#1 the stamp is anita's and flowers out of my stash. I tried not to sew I was going to doodle like Jo did on DCM but I couldn't help it before I knew my needle was threaded and the holes had been made.
Off to Scrapbuddies crop tomorrow at Mychett, I'm in trouble cos I posted Karen pic on her team thread on UKS. You never know I might actually get to scrapbook.

The Challenge:I love my rubber stamps and am always amazed by all the different types of folding cards and other creations you can make with some ink and rubber! So I would love to see what you can make. It could be a simple bookmark, a doorhanger, a notebook, anything besides a traditional single fold card. As long as it uses a stamped image and is NOT a bog standard single fold square card (and hasn't been featured on your blog before).

So I leave you with my Bag Lady layout that Sis has been moaning for ages that I haven't put on my blog now she will probably moan because I have, at least I used the photos that I had photoshop out the red nose of her cold. The layout is based on a Pagemaps sketch that also does card sketches too.
Today I plan to do my a-z journal because before I know it we will be on D.

This Di Hickman Jan sketch#5 using K&co papers and stamps away flower. The sentiment was from Michaels in a dollar box.
I've photo it slightly different after seeing how Paperbabe did hers. She just used a chair and some 12 by 12 cardstock. Now do the cards look nicer this way or should I just photo them head on like I ususally do.
No snow down here in the south east although my MIL has some and looks like we're getting rain tomorrow but hope it holds off because we've been promised a roast dinner if Hubby can help to clear up Sis garden. Trust me Sis's Roast Dinner is something not to miss.
