from caryn

And my final award is from Ida, who is so sweet and said some really nice things about me and Denise being her boss at PFP :)

PIF from Ida

about PIF:
The whole thing started with the movie "Pay it forward". The role model of Haley Joel Osment, gives a great deed to another person. The only attach to the one who receives it, is that he/her has to promise to give something that matters to others. A simple demand, that may not be as simple that it sounds? Someone has now taken this principle further, and made it into a gift. The rules are simple - everyone can join, and only 3 rules have to be fulfilled:
1. You must have your own blog, so that you can spread the message.
2. You must like to make others happy.
3. You must ship your 3 gifts within the next 365 days.

Ok this award is going to

  • Michelle - who’s birthday I missed (slapped hand)
  • Linda - who’s birthday I missed (slapped hand again)
  • Natalie – who always gives me gorgeous awards :)

So you girls should be getting a little something in the post, I don’t know when but I have got 365 days :)

DT card Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

This weeks challenge at SCSC is "In the Jungle" and was set by the lovely Wendy (Secret crafter Boss) I had slight trouble with this one, as I couldn't work out what animals I had in stamps which lived in the jungle, I did want to do a hippo but Dave told me they lived in water, so I decided on an elephant, Tarzan rode an elephant in the jungle didn't he :)
The elephant is papermania and is coloured with ProMarkers which I should mention and never have (DOH!!) that they were bought from Wendy at Secret crafter, Dave went to Wendys house and bought the whole set for me last year :) which I thought was extremely nice of her been as he was a total stranger and a bit scary looking (only joking). Anyway the papers are DCWV and the doodling was done my yours truly :)
Please go and take a look at the rest of the DT work, they have made some gorgeous cards as usual :)

Thank you for looking, hope you all have a nice weekend

You're the Best!

I made this card for a friend who helped us out with a few odd jobs :) The image is High Hopes "Carpenter Ant" and is available from Tracy at "Dies to die for", I have coloured him with Promarkers, I had no idea what colour to do him so used most of my warm greys. The papers are also available from Tracy, they are Doodlebug Bazzill "Dragonfly" a gorgeous colour and the pattern paper is Daisy Bucket "Mind your Manners". Tracy has lots of new goodies arriving all of time so it is always good to go check out her new listings on her website. The sentiment is papermania.

DT card Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

This weeks challenge at SCSC is "bling" chosen by the lovely Jill, I decided not to do a card for this one and did a sketch book instead, I love sketches but never remember them so I have decided to print them off, put them in my book and then there will never be an excuse not to make a card :)
I have used all K&Co papers and embellishments, the butterfly has gorgeous stones on which you can not see properly and so do the flowers, the wording is also K&Co, sorry about the photo again, anything that has a little bling on does not photo well for me :(

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, hope the weather does not dampen it for anyone :)
