This weeks challenge on the Daring Cardmakers blog was an unnatural one. We were asked to make a card using a colour not found in nature, for example purple elephants, or red lions. So naturally i made a card with a pink fox!

This weeks challenge on the Daring Cardmakers Bloglis to create an Alice in Wonderland inspired card. I am a HUGE fan of over thing Alice in Wonderland so jumped at the chance to take part in this challenge, especially ad i knew i had the perfect stash. For my birthday last year mum brought me some Alice in Wonderland toppers amd papers from Debbie Moore so i dug this out and decided to use a Mad Hatter topper to make this card.

I dont know about you but i have love hate relationship with auto correct on my phone, it loves to torment me and i generally hate it for this! But just as i sat down to start writing this blog post showing you another one of my recent layouts I noticed a spelling mistake on my title. Granted I could have quickly gone and corrected this, took another photo of it and then blogged it and you would have been none the wiser, but In all honesty I cant be arsed to that so you'll just have to deal with it! This layout I made for the May sketch challenge on Sketchy Scrappers which was set by Elaine.

So since my craft filled week of 3 layouts and 1 card made in a week i have since made...nothing! Yep normal service has resumed with work, etc so I've not had a chance to sit at my desk other than to watch a couple of episodes of Pretty Little Liars on Netflix in the morning when I've been on a late shift! Before I go one to share one of my recent layouts, has anyone seen Pretty Little Liars? Oh my god I love it but I cant keep up with the twists and turns! I could write a whole blog post about the programme and my theories but I wont! Instead this os the first layout I made during my return of the mojo week.

I had a productive week crafty wise last week, completing three layouts and one card! The card i made was for last weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge which was to make a great outdoors, woodland inspired card. I immedietly thought of woodland critters and remembered some diecuts I had from Fancy Pants True Friend collection.

You know how you're waiting for a bus and then three arrive at once? That's how it is with birthdays for me at this time of year, I have noone to make birthday cards for then three friends decide to have their birthday's within a week! I managed to find time a few weeks ago to get organised and make some cards for them. This first card was for my friend Kelly. For this card I used papers and die cuts from Paige Evans On My Heart collection.

Monday rolls around again, the weekend is over. This weekend was a weekend of car shows, racing and one last training walk before my sponsored walk on friday. On saturday we went to Japfest at Donington race circuit to watch another round of Time Attack. I dont think I've been to Donington since i was a kid, unless you count going to a sunday market there one time after a friend had passed her driving test! It was nice and easy to get to only an hour and a half down the M1 and all in all it was a good day deite it feeling some what more rushed than normal so they could evict the boy racers before a bunch of screaming girls came in to watch Little Mix who were playing there that evening. I'm not going to lie i was tempted to hide in the loos so i could sneak into the concert! Yes I admit it, my name is Jess and I like Little Mix! A Little Mix fan who was finally part of the JDM club as i finally managed to get my hands on a Bride rucksack complete with racing harness straps! Trust me when you go to these shows you see these everywhere!
