Welcome to my Blog!

Hello Crafters! Crafting is my escape into my own little world full of ideas. Some of my best creations are produced in the early hours of the morning out of my craft cupboard …. hence ‘Open all hours’. Plus, as I have three lovely small children, often, evenings, weekends and late at night is the time when I can concentrate on making cards.

Cute Card Thursday Challenge 51

Hi everyone,

I love this week's sketch, and because it's a sketch it saves me having to think about the layout too much, which speeds things up a bit! Although my five year old little girl slowed things down as she wanted to make a card of her own. It takes her about five minutes to colour the image and then she wants lots of goodies out my craft cupboard! Anyway I got there in the end, so this is my entry for the weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge...

Colour Create Sunday Challenge - green, orange and yellow...

Hello everyone,

Here's my entry for this week's Colour Create Challenge, green, yellow and orange.
Well, the weekend's nearly over and it's back to work tomorrow, so I shouldn't really be up late crafting, but you know what it's like once you start! Hope you all had a fun weekend.

Penny Black Challenge - Recipe 3,2,1

Hi everyone,

Wow, I couldn't believe it when I saw that I'd won the draw from last weeks challenge, I had to do a double take, lol! What a great start to the weekend. Thank you so much to everyone on the Penny Black Challenge Team.

I got up early this morning and did this week's challenge so I could get all the mess out the way early, I'm not a tidy crafter! So here's my entry for this week's Penny Black Challenge... Have a great weekend, and thanks for looking, from a very happy blogger, Michele x
