I do so love pretty…:)
I saw that my time made easy has now started  a challenge blog:) I do love Lauren’s templates, i’m just ‘lazy’ when it comes to all the cutting I know that i have me cricut expression(which i never use) I did have the 1st version of sure cuts…hmph..until provocraft did another update to machine which made the sure cuts not work :( So since then i haven’t really used it, i have loads of lovely carts i just find it too time consuming…lol I’d rather just cut sumats with me cuttlebug! Anyhows when i saw yesterday what the colour challenge was, IVORY,LIGHT PINK,LIGHT GREEN & RED i simply had to join in with the challenge as it’s me fave colour combo *apart from the red bit…lol, i don’t usually throw the red in there* A couple of weeks ago i saw a lovely bird cage that Debbie had created using one of Lauren’s new templates. I really did love the look of the template, but there was no way i was gonna sit cutting that lot out…lol So because i wanted to join in with their challenge and because i loved the cage i decided to buy sure cuts 2 so as i could by the template and then get the cricut to do all the cutting for me…hehehe! So i’ve actually used me cricut! *Can’t remember the last time i used it..6mths/12mths…sumats like that…lol I have taken the pics in me kitchen and it is very bright in there today. I started out creating this with Mother’s day in mind…but now that i’ve finished it , i think it’s too pretty to part with and think it needs a place in me craft room instead…haha I also created a card to go with * I’l just give her the card* hehe

I managed to ‘throw’ a bit of red in there without too much trouble…lol The SHABBY TEA ROOM challenge is ‘bingo’….no not the game, you have to choose 3 in a row..or if ya brave all 9! Pop over there to see what i mean. I’ve actually used 7! The only ones that i haven’t used are buttons and brads ! *I can’t believe that i haven’t used any buttons…lol* Many thanks to they shabby tea room girlies for selecting my entry for last weeks challenge as one of the ‘hounarable metion cups of tea :)*
Over at LETS CRAFT AND CREATE their theme is ‘Mum’s the word’ so you are to create something for a mum/special lady etc. So hope this counts as i did THINK about creating something for mothers day when i started this, but i just love it too much to give it away :) …and as they say…It’s the thought that counts…hehe! It will just look pretty in me craft room, think i might fill it with flowers or lace :)
