Monday, Monday, Monday.......

Oh Mondays are horrible things aren't they? I'm trying not to wish my life away, but Mondays are just pants!

I thought I'd cheer myself (and you) up with a bright little something I made at the weekend for a lady at work whose birthday is coming up. I've made this for everyone to sign, so it's not really so little- it's A4 sized!

She likes dogs- I found that a bit difficult to work in until I coloured them pink and green!

I'm entering this into the Totally Gorjuss challenge- to use string,
and the Stamping Sensations challenge- all creatures great and small.

Robot pirate anyone?

Another day, another card commission, another one for a Jake! What are the odds? I went for a pirate robot on this one.

Distressing the edges was fun, but it's kinda time consuming! The skulls are heat embossed with white powder.

Thank Crunchie.....

..... Friday's been a looooong time coming this week! I'm a teeny bit shattered, which unfortunately has a knock on effect on my creativity! Ah well, it's Saturday tomorrow, so a crafting day is planned, yippee:)

Last weekend I made a commissioned card for a lady at work- it was for he nephew, and by all accounts it went down well, always good to get a nice bit of feedback.

It's 8x8 inch square, and I went for a really sweet little boy from Lili of the valley.

I'm entering it into the Lili of the valley Ideas to inspire monthly challenge- Anything goes
and the Simon Says Wednesday challenge- to use a rubber stamp

A shabby challenge for A Little Bit Crafty

Wow, these months are knocking along quickly........

Time for a new challenge at A Little Bit Crafty. 

A Little Bit Crafty DT Blog

This month we'd like you to show us your shabby creations. I'm not sure I've cracked the shabby style- although this certainly isn't neat and tidy, lol.

It's another little notebook for my craft fair- I used the fab little ghost stamp from one of our sponsors this month- the fabulous Octopode Factory. I've got him in rubber, but he's available, along with oodles of Lily's other wonderful creations in the Octopode etsy shop

So, if you do shabby much better than me (not difficult.....), get on over to the challenge blog and show us your stuff!

I'm entering this into the Corrosive challenge- cute and creepy
