Allsorts Challenge week 11

This is my card i am entering for this weeks challenge over at Allsorts where the lovely Dawny p has done this sketch and we also have to work to the theme Marshmellows and chocolate. So my card is therefore pink/brown/white.
I have used my gorguss girls which i have masked to give the threesome although i have to say this is the third time of doing it. My copics seem to be drying out and they ruined my first attempt, the second attemp i tried something else and again it got ruined so for the third attempt i used my water colours and i am not happy but gave up in the end(defeated). Anyways a basic card for me think i have lost me mojo a little and also suffering from whiplash due to someone ramming into my car at the weekend quite hard (didn't realise it was so painful) so i blaming it on that (lol). Anyways i don't think it'sto bad a job and at least i have managed to create a card.

Dotties World Frame IT Challenge

This is a custom made card for my usual customer. I really enjoyed the challenge and have used my all time favourite for male cards and that is George. He is so versatile and so talented at all the sports and jobs he has (he he) and always suits my card designs perfectly. As usual my camera has let me down and doesn't do my work any justice and if it wasn't for the 3d view photo it would just look plain boring flat but it is raised. This ties in niceley with this weeks challenge over at Dotties world(i think) where Tara has chosen Frames for the challenge this week, hope that the frame fits with this.

Completely devastated

Hi Everyone
As you all know i started back to work as a fulltime Dental Nurse after landing myself a brill job. I was so proud of myself for getting this post after not nursing for 11 years and this was my first interview so i was chuffed to bits. Anyways i have done two days work and love it and they love me, but that is short lived as i have now had to tell them i can no longer do it due to childcare costs. I cried myself to sleep last nite as i am iam completely devastated. There seems to be no childminders in my area that will pick up and take to school and the after school clubs just want to rip me of off charging £10.50 per child for 2 hours minding so it would cost me £9 per morning, £21 per after school and £30 for my 21/2 year old son for nursery per day. Can anyone else justify this. So the only way i could possibly work would be to leave my husband and then i would be paid so many benefits etc and childcare would be paid and free school dinners. It is so wrong. Any one can you advise i so want to go back to work and no i cannot qualify for tax credits as my hubby works. So what shall i do? I have lost all will power to do anything as i just keep hitting a brick wall and just can't seem to get stuck into a card to cheer me up either.
hugs a very upset Debra

WOJ GDT card/Creative card crew

I am the Guest designer this month over at WOJ
and this is my version of this weeks interpretation of the recipe for 3 patterned papers, 3 flowers and 1 ribbon. I love these new gorgeous stamps and have used all three to create this beautiful wedding card. I am also entering it for the challenge over at creative Card Crew
where the lovely Tasha has chosen wedding as the theme for this weeks challenge and this fits in just nicely. I have stamped the images and layered up using the paper piercing method and used flower soft for the very first time and i am now addicted to the stuff and will be ordering some more lol. hugs Debra
