Still not too sure about it but it is a bit more of my paper stash used up and another card in the box!
Happy Wednesday to all
Love Bex x

Over at Basic Grey Challenge site there was a recipe. Which I think I have followed! Papers used are Stella Ruby
And the fab challenge blog that is Penny Black Saturday Challenge asked us to use a frame. Now I would have loved to make a frame for an image - but lets say me and craft knives do not get on! So I opted for a framed sentiment using a slide mount (Small cheat I guess!)
Now I am off to watch TV, chill out and get an early night ......... all this relaxing this weekend has me totally chilled out!

First up the very talented Sue over at the JB Forum challenged us to make something "clear". Her samples were stunning - a card, a LO and a mini album which can all be seen HERE.
I have acetate here but never made a card using it - a very simple one from me, I may try again and be a bit more adventurous!
Second up there is a challenge to use "Polka Dots" over at Caardvarks. Quite pleased with myself as I have used up some scraps of really old paper - the mountain is gradually reducing ........ should be gone by 2012 :)

So moving on, firstly for Grace - a Pic of Maisie this evening trying to help me craft. Instead with her head on my craft desk staring at me I feel "watched"! I should never have moved my room round and given her access via the bed!
So what have me and my helper made today?

I absolutely love PB Stamps and have decided that as I only have a few I obviously need to go shopping and buy some more!
It's a hard life :)
Thanks for the challenge girls and I hope to join in more often - once I have been shopping of course :)
Love Bex x
Second up a sketch from Di Hickman - a very simple little card from me as I was using up some scraps of plain card.

I spotted a FAB sketch over at Caardvarks
The sketch is from the very talented Becky Fleck - I just love her sketches, they always work out unlike the ones I attempt to create!
As for an update in Bex Land ........ let me see..........
Work - I had the Annual Directors store visit yesterday, really loved the fact the Store Manager was off so it was down to me to give the right answers! Lets say I tried my best and I am still alive and no screaming phone calls today over anything so hopefully work is still OK!!
I am off this weekend and plan to play in PJS all weekend - so far I am doing quite good at this crafting as opposed to just working in 2009 if I do say so myself!

But I am still on my crafting mission to play in the evenings rather than do work stuff ......... not sure how long it will last, my brain is still ticking with a long list of stuff to get done!
Anyway, first up I found a challenge blog called Stamp Something which hopefully I will be able to play along with as I like my stamps :) The challenge this week is to use something new - so new stamp bought yesterday! It looks very much like the leaning tower though, I think it may be me cutting it out slightly wonky rather than the design of the stamp itself!
And second up I have just played making a few cards using up paper .... I really am drowning in so much of the stuff. And yes one of my New Years resolutions is to gradually work through all the 6 x 6 pads and loose sheets of paper I have mounting up here. So I thought I would ask the girls over at the forum to join in and see if they could use some old stuff up!
Apologies for such bad pics but it is so hard this time of year to get good ones when you are out of the house 12 hours a day!
And now I am off to have a wee blog hop, and then off to bed as I am in work early tomorrow ........ no rest for the wicked and all that :)
