Meljen Madness

Hiya everyone.  I'm soo excited that the children return to school tomorrow - looking forward to a bit of R and R time lol.  Some of you may have noticed I've been AWOL from recent DT challenges - thats because I've had to take a week off from my DT commitments to help me get the children ready and spend some quality time with them.  Like most parents I've been working and juggling the headache of childcare but then Ethan started to play up a little with it all so needed to nip that in the bud.  Touch wood, he seems to be settling down and went to his friends house this morning as reward for good behaviour so I've taken full advantage by making some cards for various challenges out at the moment.

For the first one, rather appropriately, I've used Meljen's Designs' Teddy Bear Teacher.

Making this card felt quite cathartic - couldn't stop smiling - I'm probably not the only parent counting down now to the new term starting judging by these challenges lol.

Creative Card Crew - Back to School
Fussy and Fancy - Back to School
Allsorts Challenge - New Beginnings
Just Cute Bears - Lets Go Dotty
Incy Wincy - Back to School

My second card is Meljen's Rodeo Boy

I've some gold glamour dust here and some sparkly gold twine I found in my stash which I've used to make a kind of lasso.

Create for Fun - Sketch (just noticed I put the sentiment in the wrong place sorry)
 Papertake - Just the One (Lasso) 

My third card is made with Meljen's Apple Beary Fairy.
