Slow down....

Bloomin heck, Monday's nearly over already! Last Thursday I was sooooooo looking forward to 2 weeks of nothingness, but I haven't stopped for two minutes yet and it's already Monday! Never mind, I've had some fun - I've managed to get a few tags made in advance and a couple of cards. First up is a card I made for this week's Just Magnolia challenge - the theme is to make a card with more than one fold, and this is my offering

Gatefold Inside
I did actually make a card for last week's sketch challenge too - it was the first time I'd taken part in these challenges, but sadly I didn't get round to photographing it in time but what the heck, I'll show it anyway!! :o)

Over at Sweet Pea Stampers this week our theme is "Fairies live at the bottom of the garden" and I made this little box to show off my painted image.

I've decided I'm going to have to take a crash course in photography - I'm really not impressed at how my photo's are coming out these days but I don't get what it is I'm doing wrong!
Well that's my lot for today - I hope you're all having a good holiday and if you're feeling a bit at a loose end, why not get yourself over to Sweet Pea Stampers or Tag, You're It! and have a bash at one of these fabulous themes :o)
Thank You for stopping by! :o) xx
