Papertake "set"

I am so pleased that the candle and card I made for my friends 60th has matched the challange for this weeks papertake. I want thank Zoe Robson for publishing the instructions for the candle on the Pink Petticoat blog, it took me a couple of attemps to get it right but I am really pleased with the result. I used a PP image from the Lola Occassions set and the papers are from the new Sweet Sundea set. I hope you like it, please leave a comment if you do. Best wishes, Lesley

This is a one of my boys Randal, who is doing what I should

You may be wondering why I have two cards for the Willow Sketchie Challange, well as you maybe can tell, I am getting older and also in my youth I was a blonde, so I have just had a geriatric blonde moment or may two. Will try to do better in future. Love Lesley

Hi, this is my card for the first Willow Sketchie Challange. It does have something that is not quite flat, the image and the sentimet. There is also some doodling around the image and on the sentiment. I hope you like it, thank you for looking, Lesley

If anyone can give me any advice on taking a decent piccie it would be much appreciated. Thanks for looking, Lesley

Cute Card Thursday

Thank you to everyone who has posted a comment on my blog, I really appreciate your king remarks. Life has been a bit hectic in my househole this week. My brother ans sister in law have come for a visit (they live in France), they stay with my mother who lucky lives just next door to me. But the electricity went down for 24 hours on Monday so I had everyone in mine. Mother had to stay the night as it was too cold for her to go home, so all in all it's been a jolly time. My neighbour is about to have an op for a hernia so I made this card hoping that it will do for the Cute Card Thursday Challange as it has two metal brads. The image I double embossed but I think there must have been some specks in the embossing powder, that is what the marks are. It's a complete change from the usual cards that I do. I used the Crafters Companion mens CD and the stamp from their Men's unmounted rubber stamp collection. I think I like girly cards best. Post a comment for me, thanks

Hearts and Flowers

I decided this morning to create a card for the Papertake Challange this week, which is Hearts and Flowers, just right for Valentines. I do seem to be a bit monochromatic with my colouring, I think I need to be a bit more adventurous. Drop a comment it would really be appreciated.
