A busy weekend...

I've been celebrating being on half term holidays by being super busy it seems. I've been crafting like crazy but most of it I can't share yet, but these things were just for me.

First up is my contribution for the Daring Cardmakers Blog challenge for the theme circle of friends. I used polka dots paper (circles) and a bumble bee with doodled dashes to show where he'd been flying - in circles! and it's a card for a friend who is 'the bees knees'.

And then, because I liked the bumble bee so much I used the ladybird from the same set to make a birthday card, I've had a special request for cards so this is one of them.


(Paper - The Shabby Princess, Ladybird - Jacque Larsen, Paperfrill - Doodlebug, Font - CKTailor Sloppy, Ribbon - Pandura)

(Paper - The Shabby Princess and Pink Petticoat, Cupcake element - The Shabby Princess, Paperfrill - Doodlebug, Font - Typical writer)

(Paper - Lettering Delights and Pink Petticoat, Paperfrill - Doodlebug, Heart element - Meredith Fenwick, Font - Typical Writer)

The two smaller cards are for the same special request and they will be going in the post this week.

Saturday was spent doing a spot of hairdressing for my Mam in the morning and then shopping in Newcastle in the afternoon, the shops are starting to look quite festive so we had several detours to visit Christmas departments.

Today we went for a walk in the woods looking for signs of Autumn I took my big girls camera with me and Mam took my little one and we spent a happy hour wandering through the trees, we spotted one squirrel but we made so much noise stomping through the leaves that we scared him off and he was away jumping through the branches before I had a chance to snap his photograph.

I hope that squirrel was a red one, we don't wnt those nasty grey bullies encroaching on one of the last little bits of red territory! You've got some great woodland shots there - the lighting looks fantastic!
