Catchin' Up!!

Wow, it's been a really busy week for me. I have been crafting a little but haven't had the time to participate in my favourite challenges :( However, I do have some DT work, challenges and a DT call to share with you today.

First up is my Stampin' for the Weekend DT project. Yes, SFTW are back with a bang and this week we have a colour combo of Orange, Brown and Leafy Green

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp.

Heidi is again giving away a fabulous $25 spending spree in the Simon Says Shop!

I just loved this colour combo and here's my project:

I made these recently in a Christmas theme and I can't get enough of them... guess what my family will be getting this Christmas, lol!!

We have two very talented guest designers this week. Sue and Jerusha. Don't forget to check out their blogs, along with the rest of the SFTW design team.


Next up is my PDD Friday which I combined with the challenge on Magnolia Down Under, who asked for Buttons!!

I was given this gorgeous Tilda with Lollypop by Laura from Crafty Angels for doing a small favour for her. She knew I was just just dying to get my hands on this cutie, and I couldn't refuse.  Thanks Laura!!!

This month our product focus on Pezzy's playgroup is grungeboard, so I used a big swirl on my card. I painted it with Picket Fence crackle paint and then added stickles to give it some sparkle. It took all night to dry, but hey, it was worth it!! ;)

I recieved some very exciting news from Marti this morning... The new Skittles will be available to buy from Pez-A-Doodle Designs from tomorrow.

For Fall/Halloween there are two styles of pumpkins, purple spider, green web and yellow candy corn ones.  The Christmas skittles are a two part snowman, green holly, red ornament and blue snowflake. Eeek, so much to choose from!!!

Please do pop over to the other ladies blogs to see what they've been busy making! Link on my sidebar ;)


Last by not least, here a just a couple of simple baby cards that I made for a friend this week. The ribbon on both of these cards was given to me by Fiona, who thought I might find some use for them.. well I did!! lol.


PaperPlay Challenges DT call!!

Unfortunately, due to family/work commitments, Dei has had to stand down as DT member from PaperPlay challenges. This does mean that we have a place to fill and I have opened up a DT call on the blog until Oct 21st. Full details are on the PaperPlay blog. :)

Well that's it from me for now. I have 2 children's birthday parties to attend over the weekend but I do hope to sneak in some crafting time too!!

Happy Crafting
