Save The Children Challenge

Morning folks....a quick question.....have you managed to make any cards yet for the Save The Children Challenge over at Simply Create....NO and I don't need three guesses at what your excuse might be....the weather has been too nice to sit indoors and craft or you are too busy watching the tennis on TV and nobody is more guilty than me...just couldn't gee my ginger and get into the crafty groove yesterday....I had great plans but they all went pear shaped....it's becoming a bit of a regular occurrence in the cubbyhole...so after the sun went down I set to work...had to be something simple so that I could craft and watch tennis at the same time and great news that Andy Murray is through but oh dear what happened to Andy Roddick.....still can't believe he's not through to the next round....but fair dos...he was well and truly outplayed by Mr Lu.
So I sat and stamped....coloured and cut out keeping one eye firmly on the action and churned out another batch of cards....I do hope you will try and make some cards for this very worthwhile cause....and remember there are 3 - £50 vouchers or £50 of goodies waiting to be won and one of them could have your name on it.

This must be one of my all time favourite Penny Black images....but he can look a little lost on a bigger card but these cute little scalloped cards from Craftwork Cards are perfect  and hey does he remind you of anyone...but playtime is over...time to crack the whip and get Mr Mojo back to work.   Catch up with you all tomorrow...it's a very special day over at Chez Kath and I wonder what will be on my workdesk tomorrow morning.
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: just had a message from Jacqui.....the event on Saturday has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances and will now be held on 4th September.....I was so looking forward to my day out on Saturday but the good thing is.....it gives you all plenty of time to get some cards made

Hi Kath

These are super cute cards.

I am guilty as charged with not joining in.... but my excuse is I didn't know about it. In this case though ignorance is not bliss and I will get cracking to get something created.

Hi Kath

You've shamed me - I too have not made any cards - when I read your earlier post about it I thought "oh I must make some for Jacqui" and then oh dear time goes by, things slip from your mind blah, blah, blah and well I don't have any other excuses really. SOOOO I'm making a note on a bit of paper that is on my desk to make some cards - I'll keep you posted on how I do (promise)!!!!

He looks if he could do with a cuddle Kath, he makes such an adorable card. Dash it, was so looking forward to Saturday, mmmnnnn, what can I do instead I wonder! Yep, have been crafting and watching tennis at the same time to, although eyes more on the tennis. Cards made, who knows might add to the collection. See you soon. nnalorac.xx

Love this card, the dog image is so cute!

Kat said...

Hi Kath, what great cards. Still not done mine yet. Been cleaning all morning so I could ask my friend round to craft tomorrow and not look as if I never cleaned lol!

Disappointed the event's been put back to September but I'll organise that day off now. Won't do any harm to have this Saturday off too.
