MAWTT - Hazel's Sketch and Some News....

Hello... good morning! I hope you are all doing ok... we have a new challenge for you over at..

Moving Along With the Times 

and our lovely boss Hazel has created this fab...


So we want you to follow this simple sketch... lots of scope to create ... you can rotate it or flip it... just as long as we can see the sketch on your card! and we really look forward to seeing all your fab entries! :-)

(closing date of this challenge is 8pm BST Wednesday 5th June 2013)

and we also have an announcement!

 this is going to be the last challenge with MAWTT for a while as we are taking an extended Summer break.... The team works really hard and just needs some time out to recharge their batteries....

but the good news is....

MAWTT.... will be back..... :-)
(Sue says in Arnie Schwarzenegger Voice!)


Thursday 3rd October 2013 


(so please keep the date in your diaries for our relaunch)
but I will remind you.... 

But we still have one more challenge to go!!.... and we would love to have you all join in ... it would also be lovely if you could find time to visit the Design Team girls at  MAWTT  ... to see all their gorgeous cards ....and to give them some love ..... xx

I thought I would make a nice bright and cheery card!... and as you can see... I'm still going through my pink phase!! LOL this gorgeous Mo image was a freebie on Mother's Day... So adorable!!

Dies: Memory Box - 'Corner Bow' and 'Precious Hearts'
Flower: Bo Bunny - 'Blush Daisies'
Nailheads: JosyRose
Sentiment: computer generated...

Coloured with Promarkers and Copics

Ah well... I found this post quite hard to type up... I know MAWTT is returning but I will miss it so much... but I'm sure when we return in Autumn ... we will all be revitalised and gosh... it will be time to start on those Halloween and Christmas Cards!! Yippee!! my favourite time of year!! ;-))

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

SweetStamps - 'Flowers' 
Fab'n Funky - 'For the Girls' 
Simon Says - 'Anything Goes' 
By the Cute & Girly - 'Flowers'
Creatalicious Challenges - 'For the Girls' 

The forecast says rain for today! so perfect for staying in and crafting ! ;-)
Not long until weekend... and hopefully the weather will be a bit brighter by then!!
Take Care
Love and hugs

This is so gorgeous Sue. I adore the image and your colouring and layout is awesome as ever. I was annoyed with myself as I missed out on this freebie. I went into to Mo's and saw it but I hadn't got time to do my order then, when I next went in to get it along with others I want to order it was no longer a freebie.
