Anyone for a liquorice allsort?

Still TOTALLY running out of time for the fair on Saturday, my youngest has come down with chickenpox and everything else is conspiring against me.    Having fun making different things this week though.....

Where am I?

Just a quickie in case anyone is dipping in to check things out.  I've been busy making of late so have neglected the blog a bit.

Here is some of the stuff that I've been working on for Christmas Fairs and if you want one - just ask!!!

Creative Craft Challenges - Minimalist

This fortnight's challenge over at Creative Craft Challenges is 'Minimalist'.

I think sometimes I get carried away bunging all sorts of bits and pieces onto a card or whatever, forgetting that sometimes less is more....

Clean, crisp lines and a simple sentiment can be just as effective as a stack of glitz and bling....

Show us what you can do and hop over to the challenge blog to enter.....

Prizes for this challenge are provided by GORGEOUS Crafty Ribbons, FABULOUS Stampin' Dragons and GROOVYLICIOUS Papermakeup

Creative Craft Challenges

WOW!  Thanks to everyone who entered the Fancy Edges challenge on the Creative Craft Challenge Blog this week.  111 entries!  That's fabulous.

And it was my turn to choose my top 3.  Boy was it hard work.  I think every entry was brilliant.  I managed to narrow it down to a top 11 (!) but it took ages to choose my final three.   You will just have to wait and see whose cards made me most envious of their talent impressed me the most when the winners are announced on the blog.....

I know 111 entries is great but I'm rather hoping that next time it's my turn to choose, there'll be somewhat fewer.  Maybe just three to make the decision easier!!!!

Slack again

Should be making more Christmas cards. MUST be making more Christmas cards.  Am not.  I have two birthday cards to make for this weekend and have completed 3 out of 8 orders I got from Playgroup last week.  I also "finished off" a few extra cards last night that had been sitting around, neglected and gathering dust for a while.  I'm going for 'quick and easy' at the moment so the peel offs are seeing the light of day again!!

Me hope you likee
