TV Tuesday

I love the TV on a Tuesday.  Holby City followed by a night of CSI, what more could this girl ask for?  Something nice to eat of course.  So what was on the menu tonight?  My favourite go to recipe of the moment, creamy linguine with lemon and olives.  It's a fabulous Slimming World recipe that heats up well the next day too.
So whilst watching TV - a little crafting of course.
This first card was inspired by challenges at:
One Stop Craft Challenges - make your own designer paper
Card Positioning Systems - sketch challenge
Tuesday Taggers - all that blooms
A Spoonful of Sugar - Floral delight
I loved making my own patterned paper for this card with my Papertey Ink stamps.  How cute are those flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts - beware if you go shopping there, you'll be spoilt for choice!

This second card was inspired by challenges at:
The Pink Elephant - recipe challenge - the colour red, scallops and a bow
My Time to Craft - Xtra special - it's going to a friend to let them know how special they are.
I love this little scalloped card.  The stamp and the papers were from a Scrap-a-gogo greetings kit.  They're fabulous little kits that let you try a little bit of all the new papers and bits and pieces.  As it's rained here all day the little umbrolley is just the perfect image!

I hope you're week is going well and that the rain didn't get you too wet today.
