ICS Challenge

What a hectic week so far. Father in law has been rushed into hospital with rapid dementia and seizures. We have been in out of hospital for the last 4 weeks but finally they have admitted him to a ward. Work is a nightmare the child I look after at school has come back to school this year like the devil child. ( I am sure I will be hitting the bottle soon!!!) And finally I am having to do all the homework with Holly and  things round the house due to husband flitting to and fro from the hospital. So hence the lack of cards on my blog recently. Hopefully all will sort itself out soon.
On to my card this week for ICS challenge. Please take a look at my other DT members cards.

I have used:
Stamp - Sugar Nellie Manga Girl # 2 and The Greeting Farm - Butterfly Wishes (sentiments)
Promarkers to colour
Scrap paper and Linen Thread.

Many thanks for taking the time to look at my card.

Dressing Up .....

 What a windy day I think autumn is definately here. Most of Holly's apples have been blown off her apple tree today and those that haven't I picked off before they got bruised and battered. Her tree was laiden with apples this year the most I have seen since she received it as a christening present back in 2003.
On to my card for today. This is the card that I made for Holly's school friend Mackenzie for her 8th Birthday. I used the sketch from ICS this week as my inspiration.

Close your eyes, make a wish & blow !!

This is my card for the ICS challenge this week. I had a bit of a diseaster as I read my email wrong and the image I used below had been printed out for next weeks challenge not this week. Ooops!! So I had to hurry and make this card before my deadline. That will teach me not to read my emails properly. I thought it was only fair to use the image provided by the sponsor as they were sponsoring us too and not one I already had. Then whilst under pressure the following words came into my head "Close your eyes, make a wish & blow!!" This was a memory from my past (well not that long ago) of what I do when I pick a dandelion seed head. So with out further or do here is my card sponsored by In Style stamps

The Sketch

 I used:  Digi image - In style stamps & My Minds Eye - Dandelion stamp
Scrap paper, hessian from stash
Woodware punch - flowers 2 sizes
Promarkers to colour
Own sentiment

Thank you for taking the time to browse.
