Chocolate Hangover?

Morning.

Can you get such a thing as a chocolate hangover? I can't say that I have one, having only had a tiny bit of chocolate yesterday.  Hope you had a lovely day yesterday.  We spent it with family and had a most enjoyable time and a lovely Easter Sunday dinner.

I saw this image on LMMS the other day and, like Ava, decided I needed to have him. Thankfully Scott decided he needed it to send to his great aunt as a thank you for the Easter eggs she gave him and Craig otherwise poor Cuthbert would have been lying unloved in a box,

Game Boy - With Apologies to His Mum

Hello.

Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made for one of Scott's best friends. I've used the Saturated Canary image Gamer but I cut him out so I could make my own background, rather than using the lightsabers from the image. 

I've based everything on Evan's room - well, ish. He's now made his mum go and buy a Star Wars poster exactly like the one in the photo and wants a yellow cushion to go with his orange one. Sorry Jill!!

Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas At Sweet Stampin'

Our theme this month is 

Cute Christmas

Boy did I struggle with this. I didn't want to revert to using James the Bear which I so often reach for when doing cute. So then I had a brainwave and spent two hours looking for a set of stamps last night.... didn't find them till I was going to bed but managed to start this card at lunchtime and finish it off tonight. Talk about scraping under the wire.....

Ski Sunday (on a Monday)

Hello.

I have had an extremely unproductive evening. I started out to make a DT card but couldn't find the stamps I wanted to use and spent two hours looking for them. Found the matching dies but the stamps are nowhere to be found. 

This is a work birthday card from last year, it was for one of the guys who is extremely fond of the outdoor life - loves skiing, climbing etc.
