Not Quite Straight

I'm so late with my card today! I've been having such a busy time this week that I didn't manage to make it in time! Lot's going on as we have a family wedding tomorrow morning and so was busy with last minute shopping and preparations, my brother, who is on holiday here from Australia, is staying with us, there are also our aunt, cousin and his wife from USA who came over for the wedding and also my son is sitting for his O Level exams, so I'm the one taking him for these! Phew!! Even writing them down is making me tired !!!

Anyway, is my card for today which I made for the new challenge that started today at 

The theme for this week is

I wasn't really sure what to do to tell you the truth, and being so busy, my mojo just wasn't helping at all! For my card I decided to use this darling image Uh Oh from one of our sponsors this week, Stitchy Bear Stamps.

Our second sponsor is Marianne Design and the winner gets these two lovely stamps.

Hello everyone, hope you are having a nice day :) .. as for me ... I've just returned from work and remembered that I still had to check my credit card accounts, which is what I did!!! only to find out that I had a twice late payment fee plus interest of course!!!! grrrr I hate this ... well, definitely not a good week as MIL was also taken to hospital this week and she is still there! Doctors say it's nothing serious but still not nice on an 80 year old. Besides that, next week we have a family wedding, so we're hoping she'll be out by then.

Anyway, it's Wednesday today, so time for a new challenge at 

The theme for this week is 

Thought this card that I had just made was perfect for this theme! My lucky day, as I was so busy having FIL over for dinner while she was in hospital, that I didn't have time to do anything else!

We are this week sponsored by Kenny K and the prize is 3 digi images.

Cats and/or Dogs

Hello everyone. I'm so late today with my card! We are very busy at the moment at the office that I had to stay overtime again, and so as soon as I arrived home today, I quickly rushed off for my Bokwa class arriving just in time! Phew!!

Anyway, better get on with my post as it's so late already and I do still have an ordered card to do for tomorrow ... 

So here is my DT card for this week and the challenge at

Hello everyone, how's your week going.. For me it's a busy one as hubby is doing some painting in the house and so I got a big mess everywhere. Today he even ventured in my craft room ... yikes!!! It really needed a paint job but I am not looking forward to put everything back in place.

Anyway, it's Wednesday today which means that it's time for a new challenge at

The theme for this week is 


Ooops .. I hardly ever use buttons on my cards.. but I managed to add three on my card.. fake ones which I did with my Martha Stewart punch.

The image that I used is one of my faves from Lili of The Valley, which I colored with my promarkers. 

I love how it turned out... with the buttons :)

Clean and Simple

Back from my Bokwa class today and oops .. I remembered that I still hadn't put up my post for today! My son has been using the laptop non stop in the evenings (taking breaks from the studying for his O Levels) so I am ending up not having any time to use it myself!!

Anyway, so better get on to my card now as it is already so late and tomorrow I have to wake up very early to do my run! I will soon be participating in another marathon, next Sunday, but this time just a 10 km one.. Looking forward to that :P

So here is my card now.. a Clean and Simple one for the new challenge that started today at

For my card this week I decided to use this gorgeous freebie stamp from a magazine to make another Mother's Day card. Mother's Day in Malta will be celebrated in May, so I'm still making them at my leisure.

I of course colored it with my promarkers, the sentiment stamp is from Simon Says and then I just embossed a border and added two punched butterflies.

We have two sponsors this week.

Dr Digi's with a prize of two digi images of the winner's choice

and Crafty Ribbons, offering a £10 voucher as a prize.
