Hope the weekend has started well, it has been a busy few weeks here for me, so a bit of a lack of blogging time. I have been making the most of spending time with my daughter before she heads off to start a new adventure in two weeks. She did really well in her A levels and will be studying Mathematics at University of Hertfordshire. Massively proud of her, at what she has achieved but am obviously feeling emotional about her leaving too......we have had lots of shopping trips, coffee shop afternoons, walks out with the dogs and movie afternoons! Will miss her enormously, but if I'm honest our bank account could do with a little recovery time, lol

Ok, so I'm not entirely sure that Monochromaticalness is actually a "thing" or indeed a word, but we'll go with it, as it I think it sums up the new Crafty Friends Challenge
the theme is

we have three lovely sponsors:

We were lucky enough to be provided with some adorable images from our sponsors for the team to play with, I couldn't resist Daisy Mae from Angie's Digital Stamps.

Happy Monday to you.....hope you had a great weekend!

So, it's Inspiration day with the current Cutie Pie challenge, and if you hop on over to our "A Little Extra Cutie-ness" post, we have some amazing cards to share with you....and also some very special guests too

our theme for the current challenge is
Work, Rest or Play

we are sponsored by our lovely friends at 

who are offering a wonderful prize to our winner
and also, very kindly provided the most adorable images for our team to play with
but not only that....several member of the PG design team also agreed to be our Guest Cuties for this month too....we are delighted to have you with us and thank you for making such amazing cards for this challenge!

My card features:

  • Spellbinders die
  • sentiment used Piece by Piece font
I have made this card for my son who will be 16 in September....not entirely sure how this can be as it seems like just weeks ago I came home from hospital with this chunky lil' baby, and now he is head and shoulders above me! Very apt image for him as he is X-box mad, has a habit of leaving discarded food lying around, and is followed all over the place by our dog, Daisy!

Cheerio till next time xx
