Still a lot of love around!

Many of the crafty challenge blogs are concentrating on love themes atm (obviously, with Valentine day drawing close).

For tonight's card I used the Dawny's sketch 8, the new one today on Papertake Weekly:

I used a download from Pollycraft, so this fits their challenge 8: love.

Mixed Media Monday's current challenge is 'romance', so this is OK for that.

Caardvarks new challenge is to use hearts, which are included on this card.

The challenge 47 on My Time to Craft this week is 'a little birdie told me' ... and there are two little birdies on this card.

And, lastly, challenge 21 on BG this week is 'Let's mix it up!' I always enjoy the BG challenges with the opportunity to use some of my favourite papers and this week I've mixed up Cupcake papers (those used for the main background) and Scarlet's Letter papers (for the strip on the left and the panel behind the stamped image) for this challenge.

Karen's blog candy

I was really surprised when I learned that I'd won Karen's blog candy and this morning I received it:

Thank you, Karen, so much for a lovely selection of crafting goodies.

BF inchies swap

Postie brought me my inchies today from the swap on BF. They are fab-a-roo!! Thanks so much to all the girls on BF who swapped and to Karen for organising and sorting.

These are great!

4th folder 4th picture tag

A few days ago I was tagged by Karen 'to take the 4th folder from your picture file and then blog the 4th picture. (Sorry, Karen, that I've taken while to do this).

When I remember to do so (which isn't as often as it should be) I transfer photos to memory sticks, so this is the 4th picture in the 4th folder on one of those sticks.

It was taken during a day out to London with our DIL and three girls, seen here with 'Grandad John' outside Buckingham Palace:

Not a terrific photo, but one that brings back memories of a happy day out.
Now I'm supposed to tag five others to do this, but, as this has been doing the rounds a bit, I think I'll just say that if you haven't done it, please grab the tag now and let us see your picture - please leave me a comment with a link so I can come and have a look.
