Hobbycutz Challenge

Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Hobbycutz

This week our theme is

Buttons Galore

Our sponsor this week is All Dressed Up Stamps

I've used a Medium Decorative Swirly Strip from Hobbycutz and I wanted to make it look like flowers on it so I used some wee dotty buttons as the flowers. This is one of these cards which isn't what I started out to do but I like the way it's ended up!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

This week our theme is

Take Flight
(birds, balloons, aeroplanes, butterflies)

Our sponsors this week are Crafty Ribbons.

Now I really was going to do a card with a butterfly. Honest. I was. However, my imagination took me down a slightly different road and I've ended up with this..... mad or inspired, you decide!

Phew!

It's hot! 

I know. It's Glasgow. It's July. I can't believe I said that either!

So the children are out playing and I thought I'd get up to date with comments and scheduling blog posts when I found some cards that I haven't yet blogged so apologies, this one is nearly a year old but it was a wedding card my friend asked me to make for her Brother in Law who was getting married last year. I think this is the last time I used this couple for a wedding card as I discovered that having no image and just going for a classic look was a good look for a wedding card.

Pistols at Dawn

Morning.

You may be wondering about the title of the blog post today. Well, yesterday we spent a very enjoyable day with family in Linlithgow including a water pistol fight in the garden which was a lot of fun!

Today's card is the last teacher's thank you. Definitely. Well, maybe. I can't see any more. 

This is the one I made for Scott's teacher (he had two). I've got to say of the two cards I made for Scott's teachers, the other one I made is probably my favourite!

On That Note

Hello again.

Thought I'd come by and share another teacher's thank you card - one more to go after this (I think....) This is a card I made for the music teacher who was retiring at the end of term - she had also been Craig's teacher when he was in Primary 5. She'll be sorely missed at the school. This Digi Stamp Boutique image just seemed to fit the bill perfectly!
