HI Girls, Anything Goes at Anything Goes this fortnight.....

I've had a great day today, the kids and I went to a forest afternoon, organised locally.  We made dream catchers, made rabbits and cats from clay, built dens, made name tags and generally had a great time.  Having only recently moved to a new village it was great to meet other Mums from the same village and be able to chat and mingle whilst the kids did their thing.  So, thats new friends, tired kids and a stress free environment.  Absolutely fantastic.

Wow, what a lot of you entered into the spirit of Easter last fortnight at Anything Goes.  The rest of the fab dt team and I have been having a great fortnight looking at all your brilliant work.

This fornights challenge is anything goes.

Our challenge for this fortnight is a nice easy one
"ANYTHING GOES AT ANYTHING GOES"  let your creativity run wild!!
This challenge will run from today Tuesday 3rd April 2012 to Monday 16th April 2012.  

Here's my memory book for this challenge. 

I made this for a friend of my sister in law to give to her Sister.  She loves gardening and birds.  The Book is made from Craftcard, envelopes and cards.  The edges have all been inked with TH walnut distress ink.  The gorgeous edging is a Woodware punch.  The papers are Kanban Oxford.  I have used  Papermania Urban Stamps and PaperArtsy Stamps together with a few others I have in my stash.  

The book was bound and finished off with a TH birdhouse, tied with ribbons from stash and a few embelishments from an old necklace.

It's Cutie Pie time again and Tim loves his cupcakes

Hi everyone, today's a great day, the sun is shining and I had a fantastic afternoon with my gorgeous son. We went shopping and finally managed to get him some "Skylander" characters.  Not to mention that at thirteen he already knows exactly how to order his coffee in Costa.  (A man after my own heart - lol)

Today's challenge over at the Cutie Pies has caused all of the DT a real headache.......... I mean .......... how can a girl possibly choose a single ................. yes a single favourite cute stamp.  JUST ONE ......... and only one..............  you have no idea how hard it was, but I am hoping that you soon will.........

Go on pop on over to the Cutie Pie Challenge and join in.   It's been great fun making this card for this challenge.  Anyway here's some detail about the challenge ...

something you fall in love with!

Anyway for my card I chose to use the fabulous Timmy Tiger with his cupcake for my friend's birthday card.  So here's timmy in all his splendour.....

Tim has of course been coloured with promarkers.  I then layered his onto squares nesties.  The card has been folded back on itself and I have added a home-made stick pin tied with a chiffon ribbon.  The badge was from a scrapbook kit I had for christmas.  The beads for the stick pin were from my stash.  The sentiment is from Kanban and the papers are First Edition.

I must confess that I had to have a cupcake after colouring this one in............ so go on pop on over to either Teddy Bo Towers or to Digital Delights and find yourself a new favourite, or you could recyle an old one.  All the DT are waiting to see what you come up with ........ who knows we may even discover some new fantastic stamp which could become our favourite.

Hugs for now.
