Hello, I hope this post finds you all well. It's been a busy week as I have worked every day as we have a bit of a project on after a spell on part-time furlough but I am finally getting around to posting a card for this weeks challenge over at Allsorts where the theme is Any Real Animal or Creature.

It's official, I am a rubbish blogger but in my defence Blogger was changing my letters around and making up a new language which wouldn't have been possible for anyone to understand.
Anyway I am here now to dust the cobwebs off my blog - yet again - and start to share my cards for this months challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2
I am the sponsor this month and we have a cute bear stamp and some Lili of the Valley Artpad images as a prize as well as a guest DT spot so it's well worth an entry.
Here is my first card for this months challenge

Well my intentions to post more seem to have failed for now but here I am back with my design team makes for May.
We had a new challenge start on Wednesday at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2, hop over to check out Kathies sketches if you love sketches as much as we do.
We are sponsored by Polkadoodles this month and I used some photopolymer stamps which I had in my stash.
Here are my cards
Card 1 using sketch 206
This one used images from the set Hello Friend along with some old Craftwork Cards papers and purple glitter card from my stash. I have coloured the daisies with pencils which seem to be my go to for colouring at the moment and then embellished with Stickles Twinkle. I might add some more gems to this before I use it for Happy Mail in a Facebook group I belong to.
For my second card [which followed sketch 207]
I have used the stamp set Having a Giraffe and some Jungle Dreams papers which I bought from The Works last year aand are great for animal themed cards. I finished my card off with some twine and a few Card Candi, I don't use those very often but have loads and they seemed to work well for this card.
Thank you for visiting and any comments you are kind enough to leave

So after months of nursing my old laptop along (I have had more blue screens than I ought to have had recently and having to plug it in all the time wasn't really all that conducive to portability) I have finally bitten the bullet and replaced it. Hopefully (and don't hold your breath Kath) this means that I will be blogging a bit more often, well that's the plan anyway and I have certainly made plenty of cards that I can share. So let's get on with it (and thank you for sticking with me so far).
Today I am sharing a card commissioned by my lovely neighbour for her sister, the brief was that she lives on a farm. I immediately thought of one of my favourite Penny Black stamps and this is the resulting card.
