The new challenge onRuby's Rainbow Challenges is Easter. For my DT work I made an Easter card using a cute Penny Black image and some downloaded bps (no longer available) plus ribbons and flowers from my stash.
The new theme on the Alphabet Challenge Blog for the next two weeks is Dry Embossing. For my DT work I have made a card using a Happy Birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder run through my BS, K & Co. bp and Leone Em and MS punches.
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.
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.
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!

I am married with 3 grown up children ,4 grandchildren and 2 dogs! I have always done crafting of some sort, originally knitting, cross stitching and tapestry, then I began paper crafting some years ago and haven't looked back!
I like to take photos of my garden for scrapbooking and the one on here is a sunflower that the birds kindly planted for me!
P.S. - Now I have gone back to doing a lot of knitting, crocheting and sewing too!
