I have been asked to host the ABC challenge over on the DoCrafts forum, so pleased to be asked. however, not ever hosting anything before I was a little nervous, but everyone over there is sooo lovely. needn't have worried at all. However, this is my contribution to my own challenge 'w' for wedding.

Well it's been a quiet week here, hubby been away on a motorbike week in Cornwall, leaving me and the kids to fend for ourselves lol. Not sure if I was mad to let him go or a saint lol. Either way, he's back safe, and had a good time away from the hum drum of a heavy work load!
This card is for Docrafts ABC Challenge Card 'V' - V for 5, so 5 layers, 5 gems and 5flowers.

New banner & Header

I would like to show off my new header and side banner that has been designed for me my a lovely lady called @ngie (JustAng) on the DC website forum! What a lovely lady for doing this for me and for so many others as well. A true star! Thank you sooo much @ngie! I am getting a little better with all this blogging lark, no expert by any shape or form, but its getting easier each time lol.
Meeting a friend for coffee and taking the mutts for a nice walk this morning, fresh air and a good gossip! Can't beat it for clearing the head! Hope you all have a good day...might get time for a little card making later on in the day so hopefully a new creation will appear later. Bye for now. Jo.xx.

Fished out a Penny Black stamp that I hadn't used in a while to make the next couple of cards. I have realised that I don't have that many stamps, and I am fed up with using the same ones, so I feel a shopping spree coming on with a good crafting friend in tow I think! Can't wait for Ally Pally or the NEC so will have to source a good day out locally.

Hoping today is going to be just as nice, I am off to Mum's with the kids for lunch (must be good). here is one of the cards I made yesterday!

Up really early again today, was supposed to finish this card last evening but caught up watching telly for a bit, unlike me as I am not a telly freak at all. finished card this morning. Going to the local garden centre today for the last bits and bobs for my hanging baskets, would noramlly have done them before witsun week as we are normally away in the caravan for this week, but this year decided not to go and therefore it has thrown me a little and I am behind with my bedding plants, don't quite know the logic in that lol, but that's how it is! lol.

another dc challenge card, it had to be a square card, with either 4 square of 4 circles on it each with a stamped image. Not overly sure if I like it, and I think I could have added something more to it, but hey ho, I'll get good eventually I hope!
