MSE challenge 'Moving'

Have finally got round to putting a card together for the current challenge on MSE. Have been spending waaayyy too much time browsing all the lovely stuff for sale over on the crafty groups on Facebook, spending money and not actually getting much crafting done oooppps! This time on MSE it was Padster's challenge and she set the theme of moving. As soon as I got these Smirk papers I knew I would have to use the space invaders or mah mahs as Phoebe calls them lol! Here is my entry;

I used this weeks sketch from Cute Cards Thursday as I think it is a great sketch although I have moved the text. I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;

My poor lil girlie has been suffering with her teeth again so haven't been getting much sleep all week. Finally got my brain working yesterday and made a card. I decided to follow the current sketch from Cupcake Craft Challenges as I have never done a sketch before. Just so happened that I have just got the Dovecraft Piece of Cake papers so it fit perfectly! Also got a really good idea to decorate the inside, might get round to it at some point. Think it turned out quite nice, despite Phoebe asking what everything was and moving everything I put down lol!

Fizzy moon

Lastest card that has taken me nearly all week to finish! Using Fizzy Moon paper and topper, with some pearls and paper flowers. Happy Birthday sentiment was from Forever Friends 'Pink Parfait' but I think it goes well on there. Can't really see it on the pic, light was rubbish but it does say happy birthday :)

MSE challenge

Got my DD Phoebe to draw the challenge winner this morning.

Congratulations Paddingtondoo! Will look on the MSE list to see if your details are on there and get your prize out to you on Monday.

Then Phoebe wanted me to take a piccie of her little sister so it could be fair so here it is :)

Have been very busy today, sorted out my crafty bits ready for all my new stuff I ordered last night. Have come to a decision that I need more drawers to hide everything away! Either that or move house so I can have my own room :) Made some muffins with Phoebe aswell, turned out really nice aswell! (Anyone who knows me, knows that me and cooking do not go well together) But despite that, they tasted gorgeous!

Only one left now, might need to make some more! :)

Had a go a colouring in some digital images for myself. Used normal colouring pencils for the first bear and watercolour pencils for the second. Haven't used them since my Art A-Level 10 years ago so it's been a while lol! Thought I would give it a go and think they turned out ok.

Just got to find out somewhere to use them now.

Anniversary card

Over the weekend, I made a card for my parent's anniversary. I raced to get it finished as I thought it was on the 8th Aug but then found out it is not until the 18th!!! Ooooops, never mind! Got it out of the way now lol! Here's my finished attempt, not sure if I'm 100% happy with it. Think something looks missing but can't think what so going to give up trying :)

My first gatefold

Here is my first attempt at a gatefold card, I think it turned out quite nice.

 It looks a bit crooked on the first photo but it's not! Think it's just a dodgy photo :) Added some coloured gems onto the top of the cake's icing.

Finally got pics up!

Finally got round to getting pics up onto the computer, only took my a couple of days lol! Thankfully my LO seems like shes on the mend. Even attempted to eat something today!

Here is the card that was my inspiration for my challenge theme on MSE,
Went for an all blue look with some new Dovecraft papers I bought off ebay.
