Helloooo.......It's been a not so sunny Sunday unfortunately, so after a bit of a lay in, (unheard of for a very long time lol), we all got up around 10-15!! I know I certainly needed the extra few hours, ha ha.

I started to think about the last two week's worth of 52Q's, but just didn't get any further than that. I know by now, that this week's will have been announced, so that makes me three weeks behind, nevermind though. I'm going to plan this week, what I need to do for them.

So, I started to make a card, about 2.30 of which I still haven't finished as I didn't really have any particular plan/design to start with, so I took a fair while. I think I left it about 5pm, (I know, I can hear you saying OMG lol) and thought I'd try again next week, if I get the time. I always say walk away and go back to it later on. Doesn't always work for me though, lol.

I did finish off a card I was making for a colleague in work, who did me a very kind deed, so it's basically a 'Thank You' card for her.


Hero Arts - Dahlia Blossom stamp
Hero Arts - 'Thank You' Tag stamp
Bazzill Bubblegum cardstock, punched at 2 sides using the Fiskars Threading water punch
Misc - wooden flower (I think though it may have been from Mad About Cards, years ago)
Misc pink mini safety pin
Ribbon - Valencia
Inks - Color Box (Petal Point) Arboretum in Magenta
Marvy Matchables in Orange

I've also popped a couple of pics on of the recent swap I took part in on Bubbly Funk for April. The theme was to have a white background with an image of a bird on it. Need to get started on May's now, lol.

Names in no particular order (LOL!!):-

Hazel, Tracy, Leigh, Nicky S (MHK)
Suzie, TraceyR, Hazel, Karen
Ali, Beth (ME), Nicky S, Paddy
Janice, Carol, Joanne, Gez

Materials used for my bird inchie were:-
Hero Arts Sketched Birds Set - LL1195
Bird - Dove C4691
Inks - Mary-Dee Grueing Blending Blox - Shades of Turquoise on Glossy card
I did another bird for a second set, but have forgotten to photo it, so will do that next week.
There's a few extra photos than I would normally upload, but after going to a car rally a few weeks ago, I took quite a few photos, (have been having a break from photography for a couple of months), so going to the rally seems to have renewed my mojo, lol.
That's all for now and thank you for popping along. XX
