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 be.lol
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 Willow Sketchie Challange. I have had a few problems taking a decent picture, for some reason it just wont come out right and time is running out as I have left it to the last minute. If anyone can give me any advice on taking a decent piccie it would be much appreciated. Thanks for looking, Lesley

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

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.
