A couple of Good Luck cards

Happy Sunday peeps! I have had the very good fortune to work with two wonderful student teachers this year, both of whom are going to go on and become fantastic teachers and although I'm going to miss them both so much next year, I wanted to wish them both loads of luck when they leave us next week....sob..sob...!! So I made a couple of Good Luck cards for them and decided to use blog challenges to help me! This week over at Anything Goes they have set the theme of Buttons and Bows in Monochrome. Now, something I need to get off my chest.... I hate buttons! I passionately hate using buttons on my projects!!! I look at other people's cards and LO's and think "Oooh, that looks gorgeous" but when I try to use them......pants! grrr!

I came to make the brown tones card and I practically held my breath when I stuck the button on - I thought "There.... it's on - walk away...!" LOL!!! But when I came to do the blue tones card, I just couldn't bring myself to stick another button on - sorry - I faced my fears once, but I couldn't do it a second time! LOL!!!

So there y'go - two Good Luck cards for two lovely ladies - now, which one do I give to who???? LOL!
Have a great Sunday - hope the sun is shining where you are! :o) xx

Anything Goes & Just Magnolia

Hi folks and Happy Sunday! Very short post from me today.

Over at Anything Goes this week you're asked to make something Pink & Cream and include pearls and lace, and Just Magnolia have this fab sketch by Mina, so I've combined the two challenges and produced this:

Hope you like! Thank you so much for stopping by and I wish you a very happy week ahead!

MDUC Flowers

Late again!! I had intended to get this photographed earlier in the week but life just keeps ticking by and stuff isn't getting done! I cannot believe it's Friday already and the half term break is almost over :o( I've still so much to catch up with but today is going to be a chill day - it's too glorious outside to be racing around doing work, and hey, I am meant to be on holiday! :o)

So here's my offering for this week's Magnolia Down Under theme which is flowers - can you spot any on this! LOL!!!! The castle is a template which I dug out because that's our topic theme when we go back to school and I was playing with it to see if it was child-friendly enough, and I think it definitely is!

That's my lot for now - thanks for stopping by and to all of you who leave me lovely comments, I cannot thank you enough, I really appreciate them!

A Brand New Challenge Blog!

Hey, there's a new blog on the block - Anything Goes! Brilliant!! And their first theme is to make something with wings and use the colours Blue, Yellow and Brown! So here is my offering:

It may not look it because my photography is pants, but the spotty bg paper is meant to be the yellow part of this deal - I couldn't go for the really bright 'in-yer-face' stuff because it just doesn't work for me, I'm not a vivid colours person so I hope this is OK for the challenge!

I cannot believe that it's Wednesday already - the whole of yesterday was spent shopping for b'day pressies for my youngest - oops! That reminds me - I need to book a cinema trip..... must dash! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! :o) xx
