Love is a Battlefield

You'll be pleased to hear the urge to do housework has passed!  I am back to normal again ;-)

I got completely abandoned by mojo recently & asked Susan to give me a random word that I had to get inspirations from.  The second one she threw at me was...unicorn which I interpreted very literally!  Very proud here as I used up some very old paper, the backing is Brilliant Blue from Stampin' Up & the paper pieced body is a velvet paper.  Ideal for a little one as they can actually stroke the unicorn 'fur'.

So if you fancy a bit of paper piecing this week, come & join us at Sweet Stampin'.

Thought I'd join in with a few challenges too:

Come and Get it - It's a Girl Thing
Crafting when we can - One for the girls
Cupcake Inspirations -

Thanks so much for dropping by,

A Galway girl and a perfect night

I need lots of cards made in a short space of time at the moment and the Freshly Made Sketches team always inspire me so I've been waiting for the new sketch to appear today!  Well I haven't been sat by the pc waiting, I actually did some housework to keep me occupied.  Alright, I was forced to do housework so as to avoid being caught in complete chaos by a house guest.  But then that weird thing happened where I actually started enjoying myself & wanted to carry on!

To add to my productiveness today, it's the first time I've used this Sheen Douglass die of a loosestrife flower.  I read something recently about all flowers having meanings & so I looked this one up.  Apparently it means 'peace'. 

There we have it, I'm off to lie down in a dark room until the weird housework urge disappears ;-) but I just want to join in some lovely challenges first:

Shopping our Stash - Punches and/or Dies

Have a great day folks xx

Just wanna dance the night away...

Over at Sweet Stampin' this week we have a 'Mellow Yellow' challenge.  Truthfully, your yellow doesn't have to be mellow.  It can be a bright as you like !

Every time I see yellow cards, I promise myself I'll use more's lovely & cheery but I still forget!  I think I might go make another one while it's on my mind!

I used a lovely image from Stampin' Up's Simply Soft set and some spotty paper also from S.U. 

Participating in some lovely challenges:

Come and Get It - In the Garden
Dragonfly Dreams - Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes
