MTTC Challenge #175 - Doilies and Flowers

The new theme on My Time To Craft is Doilies and Flowers.  I've not used doilies before on my work although I've seen plenty of lovely cards with them on.  I had some larger doilies in my cake baking drawer in the kitchen, so decided to make a LO of some photos of my Sarah when she was very little - she is 25 now!  I made the bp myself, it was plain cream card to start with!  I am pleased with how it has turned out.

C for Celebrate St. Patrick's Day OR Good Luck

The new theme for the next 2 weeks on the Alphabet Challenge Blog, is Celebrate St. Patrick's Day or Good Luck.  As I don't have any suitable stash or anyone to send a St. Patrick's Day card to I went for the Good Luck option as I needed a New Home card for friends.

SCC Challenge #14 - To Use Peel Offs + Birthday Blog Hop Winner

The new theme on Sparkles Christmas Challenges for the month of March is To Use Peel Offs.  Many years ago when I first started crafting I used to make some Christmas cards using peel offs to make a scene so I thought I would dig out what I have left and make one of those!  It was quite good fun and made a change from stamping!

Our sponsors for this month are Joanna Sheen where you could win a £10 voucher and also Pink Gem Designs where you could win 4 digis, so go on over to the blog and take part for a chance to win.

Also, please check out the challenge blog for the winners of the Birthday Blog Hop we held last month.  The winner from my blog was Julie P - so please contact Shaz (details on the challenge blog) to claim your prize and congratulations!
