Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' and I am gatecrashing another Team Abi week.

This week our theme is

Back to School

Now ours went back to school on 13th August (now before you tell me that's early can I just say that we stopped on 24th June so we had 7 weeks of holidays so please don't feel the children have been hard done by) so I'm a little belated in sharing these and I had fully intended to do so before now... but well... I haven't. I made loads more than this but they're all variations on a theme. They're not so much back to school as first day of school.

So here we are. A boy version (for my wee 'nephew' Callum) and a girl version I made for my friend to give someone but as the card was for her starting the same school as Scott I am sharing that one.

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.

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.....

The Last Leg

Hello!

Well, the summer holidays are nearly over. And I'm not sure it's actually been summer for very long! 

I'm trying to bring a little sunshine with tonight's card which is a card I made for my friend's daughter to give her sister.  I think I actually bought this image last year to use for the same girl and then used something else instead!!

Up!

Morning!

Gosh, it's August! Already. How did that happen?!

So, that's the first week back at work done. Survived, relatively unscathed ;)

This card is a new home card I sent to friends recently, and if you can have a belated new home card, this would be it. They moved ages ago!! 

Cased this from a card I saw on Pinterest, which I stupidly didn't pin but it's based on the film Up with the balloons carrying the house. I've embellished it using a cloud embossing folder and some cloud dies!
