I'd also like to enter these into the paper shelter challenge blog... theme is red, gold and green.
and Simply Create Too where the theme is Christmas
Thanks for taking the time to look and to comment.

Field of Dreams

On SPA this week, we are remembering with POPPIES. Here is my entry, I've used the poppy image from The Octopode Factory which I layered up on the card, and I've also made a poppy to wear using the same poppy image, but layering it up and spritzed it with glitter.

On a lighter note, here is my little Myrtle (she IS tiny although not as small as Petrie) pretending she is a meerkat. This is her fave past time.

TFL Have a good Sunday!

These ATC's are for the Challenge up your life prompt of Friends

What is Sweet?

On Deep Ocean Challenge the prompt is 'what does sweet mean to you?' Whenever I hear the word sweet, I must admit my mind just pops up with the scene in Dude, where's my car, where the two guys have had tattoo's and one says sweet and one says dude. It's highly amusing.

Here's my ATC for this challenge blog.

Gothic Arches

Over on Kris Dickinson's blog she is doing a weekly gothic arch challenge, I haven't made many arches for quite a while and so I thought I would have a go, this week's theme is 'green' and here are my 2 arches! Hope they are ok, as they aren't the traditional gothic arch shape.

is the theme on Take a Word this week... I have made a couple of ATC's and even hand sewn on them! (impressed aren't you? lol)
I'd also like to enter these into the Simon Says stamp 'buttons' theme (they are faux buttons but still buttons) and also into the totally papercraft challenge of 'stitching'
