November update!

I sure do let weeks go bye without thinking about my poor neglected blog... My quilting and knitting have taken a back burner, but I am still working on some projects...I've recently restarted a hand pieced hunter star project, and promise to take some photos soon...

As usual, I am always working on cards and paper crafting projects...here is another collage of many items I did for challenges on the Flying Unicorn forum... The owner, Alda, is always hosting challenges each month with excellent giveaways, check it out here...

I also decided to enter this tag in a challenge on Scrapbooker's Anonymous to use 7 or more ribbons on a project...I have one that is turned into a rose, one glued to the tag and 5 at the top of the tag!

I also was invited by a lovely friend to join another great site, that I am just getting to know...Bella Creations 
Here is a card I made for the Voila ink! group on the site...it needed to use Crimson, White and Gold colors and inking...I used a stamp and clear embossing powder to stamp the butterfly script stamp and then inked the background with fired brick distress ink and sprayed it with autumn maple crimson starburst spray from Lindy's Stamp Gang...

My oldest girl, Aine has just turned 9 and we threw an X-Factor Pizza Party for her...here are some photos from the party...lots of craziness!
