Is There A Doctor In The House?

Hi guys, I'm a little later than usual with my post for
so apologies for that!  We travelled down to Ipswich today and I haven't had the chance to get online to post this.  I really should be more organised and have it scheduled!
This challenge is #18 and this time it's an Office Supplies/Job Related Challenge.

We have as always got some fab sponsors for the challenge and they are

I picked a fab digi image from Digital Delights and he's called Doctor Dan.  I thought he was just right for the job related part of the challenge and I've added a few staples for the office supplies part.  He was great fun to colour and think he's well suited to these bright colours!

Let's Go Fly A Kite

Evening all, thought I'd pop on and share an extra card with you this week.  I went down to the papercraft show in Hull last weekend and bought a few bits and pieces and then I was in the Range and spotted a First Edition Paper Pad reduced.  I loved the colours so decided to buy it.  It worked wonderfully with some of the items I bought at the show so though I might as well pop it on my blog as I was so happy with how it turned out.  
Hope you like it too x

Strawberry Cream

Afternoon all, hope you are well today. Fancy me being back again with another post! The reason is it's time for another challenge over at

The Challenge today is Summer Food.  We have four amazing sponsors who are

As always just click on the images and they should take you to the stores.

I picked a sheet from Whoopsi Daisy for my image, could just imagine her sharing a lovely strawberry cream tea with her little dolly.  I love Strawberries in the summer and we sometimes go to one of the pick your own farms for them.  Nothing better than having them fresh.  Not exactly the weather here today for a cream tea, we've been out shredding lots of branches (in between the showers) and it's just started thunder and lightning.  Hubby has some help now so I've been able to come inside and catch up on other things.....think my timing was perfect lol.

This is my card :

Christmas In August!

Hi folks, it's Friday again which means it's time for a new Challenge over at
This challenge is sponsored by 

This time our challenge is Anything Goes which means you have free reign to make whatever you want.  It doesn't have to be a card, some of the talented DT members have done a teapot, hat, and a pencil holder.  I stuck to doing a card as I thought it was about time I made a start on my Christmas Cards!  I know it's only the 1st of August today but believe will creep up on you lol. 

Had a hectic weekend last weekend, was in Scarborough to see Boyzone (swoon!) and then on Sunday it was Veterans day at our local park.  We had an amazing day, watching battle re-enactments, listening to a band and watching flypasts by some WW2 Planes.  Having a quiet one this weekend so hopefully can recharge my batteries.  We're going to be busy shredding branches but I'm also hoping to make some time for card making.  Hope you all have a great weekend! x

This is my card - it made me think of one of the heartwarming Christmas Movies that are always on Sky nearer Christmas - The Christmas Gift.
