Yikes, is it my turn again?

Hey kiddles,

OLW will be a little late – should have it up late tomorrow.  We got hit pretty hard with The Plague and are only now returning to our usual pink glowing selves.

I am not forgetting the favourite fives, I hope to have those up for the last three challenges by Sunday night.

OLW79 – Stamp, Stamp, Stamp (Stamp, Stamp)!

Hola kidlings,

I am a little behind here, but I will throw out this week’s challenge now and post my card and the five “cards of the week” by tonight.

The challenge this week is to make a one-layer card using as many different stamps as you can. You must use at least three;  more is better!

Have fun with it and see you later :)

And now, it’s later, so here’s my card. I used six, count’em, six different stamps!



I used:

Other: SU! markers

OLW77: Happy Birdie!

Well, hello there bunnies!

I am finally back in the swing of things and am ready to do host a OLW!  Thanks so much to Susan for doing all of January – doesn’t she just totally rock?

It was my friend Allison’s birthday yesterday and she has a thing for birds.  And owls.  And bunnies.  And a variety of other feathered and furry things, but I decided to just go with bird.

So, this week, the challenge is to make a one-layer BIRTHDAY card incorporating a bird (or birds).

Happy Birdie

I Smell a Birthday!

A very happy birthday to the queen of OLW!

Oh my goodness, real life intrudes again.  Sadly, I will not be able to do OLW this week.

I do hope to at least tidy up some loose odds and ends by next Wednesday.

Hang in there :)
