Really liked this weeks Sketch on Sketch Saturday. I really love the LOTV paper pads, they seem to be my first choice for most of my cards recently. The patterned papers are LOTV Bonnets & Bowties. The image is also LOTV Woof You. I've used a Die-namics Faux Crochet Border for the centre piece. The sentiment is also LOTV. The background plain paper on the card is from a paper pad I bought from LIDL. I'm really surprised how good the paper is. The choice of colours are varied and the quality of the paper is excellent.

The challenge at Sentimental Sundays is add sparkles, blings and buttons. I've used Mo Manning digi image Birthday Fairy Lee. The papers are First Edition Sweet Owl. I've added glamour dust to her wings, the buttons are from my stash, and the sentiment is a Lili of the Valley.

I didn't have a clue what image to use this year for hubbies valentine card. I was just looking through folders on my laptop, and one folder is called Digi Images, and I spotted this little fella called Puppy Love. Perfect. I haven't a clue where I got it from. I've gone for a blue theme which is not a traditional valentine colour but I thought I'd be different. The papers I've used are LOTV NitWit Collection Bear Necessities. I wrote the sentiment on the tag, and the heart button is from my stash. I've used the sketch from Seize the Sketch #13, and Cute Card Thursday is Lots of Love.

I was gutted when I read that Arlana was unable to carry on with the challenge blog Sweet Sketch Wednesday. A big cheer though, as Sally Dube has taken over the reins, hence the name Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2. I've used Fairy Dust Tilda. The papers are Forever Friends Kraft Notes. I've paper pieced her onesie with matching papers, and added Glamour Dust to the wishes. The sentiment is computer generated.
Love this weeks sketch at Sketch Saturday. I wanted the numbers to stand out and I think the style of this card has achieved this. I covered the numbers in LOTV paper pad Always & Forever. The pink card is from my stash, and the flower is a Spellbinders Die-D-Lites Blooms 3. The sentiment is also LOTV.

I've decided to try and keep a knitting diary this year. I really enjoy knitting but there are times when my neck just won't let me. The amount of UFO's (unfinished objects) I've got on the go is quite frightening. Fingers crossed that a few of them will get completed this year. I love knitting childrens clothes as they don't take long to knit. My friends little boy has had quite a few knitted cardies off me and every time I've forgotton to take a photo. I actually remembered to take a photo this time before I handed over this little jacket. I bought the pattern and wool (Sirdar Snuggly Snowdrops Chunky) from Black Sheep Wools. A brilliant wool shop in Warrington. So here's my first of the year. Next time I'll try and tidy my desk before I take a photo lol!

Every December, John meets up with a cycle club he is a member of, and they all dress up as Father Christmas and cycle round Delamere Forest in Cheshire. I don't know what came over me, but I suggested to John how would he feel if I joined him, but ofcourse, on our tandem. He was really pleased that I had suggested it, so costumes had to be bought. Because John takes the lead on the tandem (also known as the Captain), he purchased a Rudolph Costume. The only down side was that we had to get up at 7 on Sunday morning. It was a good day, but it was tough work trying to cycle through mud as the tandem is quite heavy, and by the end I was absolutely knackered.
