Wednesday Woes

Morning.

I've started my annual clear out of my folder early this year as I always end up abandoning the idea! Or maybe I'm just late for spring cleaning.

Sorry about the quality of today's photo.  This is a card I made ages* ago as a thank you to some of the gentlemen in our church who did some work for the Anchor Boys and the officer in charge wanted to send them a wee thank you card. I've made the boy look like he's wearing his BB polo shirt and his grey school shorts. He's also sporting a red cap as the Anchor Boys Boys wear red sweatshirts.

*last year I think

A Sloth of Bears

Morning!

Yeah, I didn't know that either. The collective noun for a group of bears is a sleuth or a sloth... so a sleuth of bears a whole group of wee detective bears wearing deerstalkers and smoking pipes..... Sorry, I took that too far.

So that leads me neatly on to today's card (well, some months ago's card). A friend asked me to make a card for her Dad's 60th. I think I've already shared the one from the kids but this is the one from her.

I broke out the Penny Black bears again cos they're just great for putting messages on cards and not having to faff about matching papers and stuff.

You May Say I'm A Dreamer

Morning, hope all is well with you today.

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments recently. I'm going to try this evening and get back round your blogs :) 

You may remember a while back that I won the lovely Fi's bloggy candy which was £10 for Handmade Bliss and that I bought Bree Loves Buttercream.... well, I couldn't just buy one Tiny Townie could I?! No. I had to buy this one too :) Dorothy Is A Dreamer.  I used this for a birthday card for my friend's daughter a couple of weeks ago, I love this image.

The Last Gasp

Hello.

Yet another weekend has gone wooshing by and here we are at Sunday evening and I haven't done half the stuff I intended to! There's always tomorrow.....

It's been a lovely day here today and it would have been quite the perfect day for replicating this card only it didn't quite happen as planned. This is a birthday card I made for a friend recently.

Rocking and Rolling

Hello.

How's your week been? I have been meaning to blog all week but somehow the week has just slipped away from me.
