MAWTT - Monsters and/or Aliens

 Hello... Good Morning! it's the turn of Team B at

and our lovely Tanja has chosen a theme of

  Monsters and/or Aliens  
Whether they be cute or scary... we would like your creation to have some! :-)

I've used a very cute Bugaboo Stamp... I've paper pieced a couple of the monsters and balloons... then coloured the rest with Chameleon Pens.... I really enjoyed making this card.

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's wonderful Monster/Alien creations, and join us for this fun challenge!
Closing date is 6pm Wednesday 3rd August 2016
Three entries per person, but please no backlinking. 

Thanks for all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate them!
Hope to catch up with you all soon! 
Love and hugs

Sunburst Sunshine!

Sorry it's been a while since I last posted.... home life seems very busy... and when I do get a bit of spare time, often I feel really end up reading and then usually fall asleep!

I had a couple of days last week when I felt bit brighter, but the weather was really dull, so thought I'd create my own sunshine with a couple of Sunburst Cards! :-D

My lovely blogging friend and Teamie Christine recently made a beautiful card here
So I took inspiration and thought I would have a go at making one... or two even...

Gorgeous Papers: Basic Grey - Picadilly
Sentiment: Freebie with magazine
Flowers: Bo Bunny

Isn't it strange how you can only see mistakes once your cards are photographed and uploaded! ;-/ 
I love the contrast of colours between the card and patterned paper on the second card... but I realise now that it was a huge mistake to use  a paper pattern with lines on! they fight against the sunburst pattern.  Gonna have another go at one of these with Christmas Papers...will make the strips a bit wider next time.

My daughter has just got back from beautiful Crete... think she brought some sunshine back with her as it's been a lovely day here today! :-)
Mum and I went round to see her flat the other weekend. It's a really nice apartment.. very light and airy. She made us both a lovely lunch and tea and jam scones for dessert! Yum Yum. 

Thanks for all your comments... I really do appreciate them!
Love and Hugs
