Hello peeps yes I'm still around as it seems I havent made a card for a challenge in ages.  I've seemed to lost my mojo at the moment but am hoping it will find its way back to me asap.  My dad is on the mend and is looking alot better after his operation.  I have been taking my mom and dad food shopping on Saturdays which is a bit of exercise and change of scenery for my dad.  Seren went away for 2 weeks at Easter to the Bahamas with her Daddy to see her Uncle, Auntie and 2 cousins which was a good excuse to get my hall, stairs and landing painted as having new carpet on the stairs and landing in a few weeks time!

Over on Christmas Challenges (with Sketches) they are holding a DT call so I have made my next card for that.

I have used one of favourite Tilda stamps called Angel Tilda and coloured her in with promarkers and gold glitter on her wings and halo.  I cut her out using one of my circular nesties.  The dp used is a selection from Magnolia and the cardstock and ribbon is Real Red from Stampin Up.  The sentiment is from The Snowman Christmas Sentiments set, red adhesive gems from Hobbycraft and roses from wildorchidcrafts.

Can't believe how the weather has got colder compared to the beautiful weather we had last week!!  I'm off to Southport on Friday till Sunday with my boyfriend which he well deserves the break as he has been working very hard as late as he is self-employed!!  Also Seren is off to the Bahamas with her Daddy to see her Uncle, Auntie and 2 cousins for 2 weeks on Friday so I have booked the day off work Thursday to get her clothes sorted and also take my Westie Timmy on his break at my parents house.  My dad was allowed to leave hospital last Wednesday (even though he had his quadrupel bypass the Monday before) as they needed the bed!  I visited him on Saturday which he looked pale still and has still not got much appetite for eating and tired with the medication but after what he's had done its not surprising.  

Anyway I've got 2 cards for you today - Christmas Challenges (with sketches) is themed White on White with a coloured image and Papertake Weekly Challenge 66 has a lovely sketch to follow.  I have made the second card for my God-daughter Isobel whose birthday it is next Tuesday.

I have used Bear with Star from Lili of The Valley and coloured in with promarkers,  gold Sakura glitter pen for the star and Crystal Ice Ice Stickles on the hat.  Cardstock is Whisper White from Stampin Up which I also used for the punched snowflakes using my Martha Stewart punch.  For the dp I embossed 2 types of design onto plain white cardstock with my Spellbinders embossing folders.  Ribbon from my stash, sentiment from The Snowman sentiment set and pearls from my stash.

I used one of my stamps from Lili of The Valley and coloured in with promarkers.  Cardstock is Regal Rose from Stampin Up as is the ribbon.  I used Butterflies and Patchwork dp from Nitwit Collections Essentials Butterfly Kisses.  I used my bow-easy for the bow and added pink pearls from Kaisercraft.

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter.
