Morning peeps and I hope that you are all OK xxx

We’ve had a rather eventful few days with internet probs, my tenosynovitis making an unwelcome  come back (grrr!!!) and various other minor stuff. But hopefully we are all OK now.

I am taking things very easy re my wrist so I’m keeping the wordage on here down to a minimum for a few days as typing really does make it worse.

So before we catch up with last week's missing in action cards, the winners of my little giveaway last Monday are ……

Doc1-1 Doc 2-1 Doc3-2

…. 24 is Suzi Q, 4 is The Cook and 16 is Pauline C

Well done to you girlies and if you could ping me a quick e-mail with your snail mail addies, I’ll get your stuff out to you sooner than soon.

Hugest of thanks you to everyone who left me a comment xxx

OK so here’s my cards from Thursday and Friday.

Firstly our theme over at the Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge is

A Few Of My Favourite Things

Well, this changes like the wind with me, and at the mo I am into the black and white and red thing. So rather than doing just a card, I thought  I’d do something a bit different. It is still a card but it also doubles up as a little calendar.  If you made up 12 images and bound them at the top, you could make this into a flip over type of calendar if that makes sense.

I used the oh so  fab  cute squares cute squares again so no colouring involved and once again it’s very quick and easy.

The papers are Pink PetticoatGingham, which I LOVE (you probably guessed that!!) and I used my fave PATP eyelet lace punch as well which you can get from Tracy over at Dies To Die For.

The gorgeous blooms are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

So that was Thursday.

Now onto Friday and we’re heading over to join the Just Magnolia girlies and as it’s our special monthly challenge, it’s an Anything Goes theme with the option of adding some sparkle.

As my wrist was starting to hurt, I kept the colouring down to a minimum on this. I also have lost the lost of colours I used – doh – but there weren't many and it’s the usual basics plus some RVs and Cs peeps.

The pretty papers are of course Pink Petticoat  and once again I used the PATP eyelet lace punch

I added some bling round the outside edge of the image and in the corners. The sentiment is cut from a Pink Petticoat sentiment ribbon and I just made it into a little tag :)

So that’s my catch up complete.

I’ll be back tomoz with a bit of Papertake-erie, so I’ll see you then. Have a good day and hope you are all keeping warm in this freezing weather. More snow is on it’s way I gather – booo hissss!!!!

Hugs to all xxx
