A flowery Elephant

Morning Folks!
This week, the new challenge at Passion for Promarkers is nice and easy:
FLOWERS
Here's my card using one of my favourite Bugaboo stamps called Spring Elephant 1 which you can find here


 I used some old LOTV papers from their Bowties and Bonnets collection. I'm getting reluctant to cut into my LOTV papers that I have left because I know they are sadly no longer available, which is silly really because I probably have enough papers to last me for the next decade!


I added some flowers, ribbon and pearls from my stash and finished the card with a die cut sentiment fron Craftwork cards that I bought years ago at a craft show.

Bad Kitty!

Afternoon Folks!
This week, the new challenge at Passion for Promarkers is right up my street :

4 LEGGED FRIENDS  

I used a PB stamp that I got for Christmas but hadn't seen ink until yesterday - there don't seem to be enough hours in the day lately!! It's called 'a little bird...' and it reminds me of the Sylvester and Tweety Pie cartoons I watched as a  kid!!  Anyway, here's my card

I do hope the feather's aren't the last traces of Tweety Pie!


Love the sentiment which came with this set:

Something a bit different ...

Happy Weekend Folks!
Have you got anything nice planned for the weekend? I'm hoping to dry out after a really miserable wet week here in Hampshire! Felt like I needed a snorkel and flippers waiting for the bus this week! 
As we are mid way through the month, it's time for our new theme over at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. This month, Helen would like to see projects with 
NO PATTERNED PAPER.

I've gone off on a tangent this month, no paper at all - just some wool!! This is a crochet  labrador I made as a gift for a work collegue who retired recently - she's hoping to spend more time with her 2 chocolate labs! I only started learning to crochet at the end of last year and it has become an addiction!! So many things I want to try, I just need more hours in the day!
 Apologies for the dull pictures, I had to photograph it before leaving for work last Friday - I only managed to finish him in the nick of time!
I got the pattern from the Edward's Menagerie Dogs book by Kerry Lord. He is made with a 4mm hook and Hayfield bonus DK yarn.
Pleased to say my friend was thrilled x
