MFT Sketch Challenge... missed it!

What an epic fail! I made two cards for the MFT Sketch Challenge and ended up missing the deadline... Oh well, there's always next time. I decided to post the cards anyway.
The first is using the Birdie Brown Sunflower Sweetheart set from My Favorite Things

I am entering this card in the January Challenge at Kit and Clowder which is ANYTHING GOES!

And here is the baby card I made using the MFT Dienamics Baby Bib die
Here is the sketch
Thanks for looking... have a great day!

My Final Cards of 2014 #3 Engagements, Weddings and Babies

This is the last post with 2014 cards I promise!!
These cards were all made within the last month. The baby cards were made on Tuesday with my BFF Sam. I started out making two for my sister to give for twin babies (the named ones) and then I just kept going. Love the MFT baby dies and stamps! So cute! Lets hope I have some more opportunities to create new baby cards in 2015!

Here come the baby cards. What do you think of my photography skills? LOL. I took these outside on my verandah table.


Thanks for looking... have a great day!

Crafting and blogging...

Well I have returned to my blog after quite some time.

HI! Thanks for sticking with me! :)

Although I haven't blogged anything in a while, I have been creating sporadically. I will try to post some more of my latest creations soon.

I made this card today for my daughter's friend's birthday.

What do you think?

Thanks for looking... have a great day!

April Challenge at Anyone for Anya

It's a NAUTICAL theme this month at Anyone for Anya.
Ahoy there me hearties!

I was an over-achiever this month and made 3 cards and then forgot to put them on the challenge blog so I missed the challenge post. They will be used as a half time reminder post instead. Oops!

Anyway, here are my creations using the Oliver and Amelia Ahoy set.

Here are the prizes for this month

Whimsy Stamps (5 digi's)

Hope you can join us this  month! 
A whole month to enter means you can enter more than once so get crafting.

 Don't forget to pop over to the DT girls' blogs to check out their wonderful creations!

Thanks for looking... have a great day!
