OK are you ready to enjoy a bit of a challenge and a chance to win a scrummylicous prize and help to raise funds for BBC Children in Need?
It's super fun and super easy to join in. All you need to do is................
Make a card with something Yellow
The yellow representing Pudsey bear you see! You can use bears too I guess if you wanted more of a starting point that's up to you! It would also be great to see something completely different so think outside the box and off to the left a bit, get inventive and make something different while you're making a difference!
The only other thing I ask is that you pop along to the BBC Children in Need fundraising page and make a donation of a £1 (or more if you want to!) when you've joined in.
Once you've made your card pop it on your blog (or you can email it to me if you don't have a blog to put it on and I'll post them here) and post a comment to let me know you've joined in so I can compile a list of all the entries here, keep a count on how much we've raised and enter you into the competition too!
Lets have lots of fun and raise lots of yummy pennies too!
So here's my something yellow card..........
I made a yellow felt flower and used lots of yellow Bazzill and some yellow Love Elsie paper. See, so you can use as little or as much yellow as you want as long as there's something yellow on there we're good!
I guess you'll want to know what the prize is? Well it's a super yum pink polka dot All My Memories mini tote 2 filled with Autumn Leaves stamps, Petaloo Blossoms, some of the new Queen & Co felt fusions, pink glitter marker, cardmaking kits and papers and loads of other yummy bits you'll love and just want to look at and stroke and coo over! :-D
The closing date for the competition is Monday the 26th of November. The winner will be drawn at random from all the entries so everyone has an equal chance of winning!
This competiton is now closed
Have lots of fun and if anyone has any questions let me know.

The corrugated card I used is a yummy pink wavy corrugated one I've had in my craft stash for an age and finally found a use for! I also made the first cut in my new Love Elsie papers. I used a bit of Noel and and bit of the Zoe ranges. I also used Heidi Swapp letters and a bit of inking and doodling. Really simple but I like it!
I'll defo be using all the Noel papers for Christmas cards it's v cute!
P.S Stop by again before Friday for info on a very special competition I'll be hosting! You might want to start hoarding some yellow stash now, that's all I'm saying........

Here's my card for this weeks dare to make a friendship card with circles! I used a circle punch to make the flowers with some patterned paper offcuts and Bazzill then added a bit of doodling.
This one's for all the DMCers. Thank you for so many fabby dares and congratz on your one year birthday! Wow, how fast has that year gone eh! The first dare I joined in with was the sewing on a card one, I'll dig it up from my blog it's here somewhere.......

I used my Bampop Hello bot stamp, some SEI paper and plain card I've doodled on to make the frame.
Then I also did the little extra this week. I just love Christmas holiday time so my word I picked was love and this is what I made.....
It's felt with a doodled boarder and a felt Christmas tree I cut and embellished with some gem brads. The love word bit is some lush Love Elsie fabric paper.
Thanks for the dares girlies!

I really enjoyed this one even though it was a bit of a toughie! :-D
I used purple ribbons and ricrac for the must use purple bit. I tore up a bit of corrugated card for the must tear something bit and for the holey bit I punched some holes in the front of my card and through the holes I've embroidered some little gold stars so when you open them up they're on the inside too. Other bits I used are a chipboard star I painted and covered with glitter and a verse of one of my favorite hymns "We Three Kings of Orient Are".
I like how it's turned out and I wouldn't have worked this combination if it wasn't for the Dare so thanks girlies!
Thanks for another mega fun dare DMC's!

The diecuts are the letters that make up the happy birthday bit. They're Colorbok ones that I bought a million years ago. The rest is all hand cut using my own template.
Thanks for another fabby dare DMCers! I've just been peeking at the fluffy challenge so I'll have a go at that one later, can't wait! :-D

All the buttons are stitched on the background paper. I glued on a bit of lace round the edge because it just needed something and a frame didn't look right so I settled for the lace. The message is just printed out.
I was thinking this card would be great to send to another crafter as they'll be able to chop off the buttons to use again! And I defo know they would even if they said they wouldn't lol, well I would!
Background paper is Making Memories, buttons are a mix up of new and vintage ones from my stash. Thread is embroidery thread along with lace from my local haberdashers.
Thanks for another fabby dare!
If you're bored this week pop along to the Crafty Templates blog and check out the competition. All you need to do is make a shaped card with a birthday theme. I've got a Basic Grey Periphery kit to give away as a prize and there's some lush buttons in there too along with some of the papers, diecuts and some yummy ribbons and lacy bits too, it's defo TDF stuff!

Our special boy passed away this morning. I wanted to put up a tribute to him because he was so loved and so special to our family. he really loved everyone he met and everyone loved him to bits. He was an absolute angel, so loving to everybody he was not a cat like any other he really loved people. I always used to say he had some doggy DNA in him somewhere because he'd do stuff that doggies normally do like run to the door when you opened it, follow you everywhere and wag his tail when he was happy. He also seemed to know every word we said to him. If you'd ask him to do something he'd do it. He also used to invite himself to the neighbours BBQ's, he loved a good BBQ and used to follow his nose till he found one and beg for a bit of sausage or burger, which he always got away with because he was such a cutey with it! He'd do a cute doggy begging thing putting his paw on your lap!
