Favourite Sport?


Its time for a new challenge at As You Like It
Our fab sponsor is


This fortnight's challenge theme is your Favourite Sport (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Ok so the only sport I do is swimming!
I have been on Holiday in Cyprus for a week and was really good and managed to swim my 3 days from my 7 while I was there...


But I took some crochet with me too!
Can you guess what I am making?


So Now you know I love swimming the only problem is....
I do not own any swimming stamps,

Doh!sooooo I have decided that my favourite Sport stamp I do own is this House Mouse stamp called House-Mouse Cling Stamp - Tee Time
he is soooo cute and soo so easy to colour, using Spectrum Noir and although you can not see it in the photo I dotted the ball with glossy accents so its bumpy.


Here are some challenges I am playing:


Addicted to Stamps and More - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - We're Going Dotty
Cardz 4 Guyz Something Starting with B - Brown & Ball (golf)
Creative Card Crew - Clean and Simple

Hugs me :)

Whats your Favourite Book?


Its time for a new challenge at As You Like It
and the theme is 
Favourite Book Inspiration (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Our fab sponsor is
Wild Orchid Crafts


Hmmm this is a difficult challenge for me because I was not a great reader due to being dyslexic and still am not a great reader of books... but when I had my son I started trying to read aloud children's books....  I think did enjoy reading books and short stories to him and also to the children when I worked in a nursery school and one of the stories I found and enjoyed working on is  The Hungry Mouse
The Story is short and a little funny its about a mouse who had a very bad time finding food, the ending is a little (cough) ermm Sad/fun
so I was inspired to use a House mouse image and this one with the mouse and cheese was just right. the sentiment I have made on my PC and the image is coloured with Spectrum noir pens.
I thought I would play a few challenges too!


House Mouse Challenge - Holidays - Christmas 
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Furry Friends
Addicted to Stamps - Clean and Simple
One Layer Christmas - Anything goes with optional twist: Green - (no twist this time)
Sparkles - Christmas Animals

Have a great week hugs me x
