A Can Of..... Flowers

Morning

A little flowery card to share today. One I was asked to make for a special birthday (but without an age!) 

I've used a DigiStamp Boutique image and kept the card fairly simple. You'll even notice I've put some butterflies on it. Not pink ones obvs.

Oops

Hello.

Are you basking in the heat or are you just a little on the warm side? This is so unusual for Scotland!!

So yesterday was Father's Day but I completely ran out of time to do cards for Andy so I had to buy some. Oops. However, I did make one for an order for someone....

Fab N Funky Challenge

Hello again

It's time for another challenge at Fab N Funky.

This time our theme is

Vintage

We're sponsored by The Paper Shelter for this challenge and they were kind enough to give the DT a couple of images to use. I've used Charmingly Hippy for my card. Now I'm not sure that a '70's inspired card actually qualifies as Vintage but there you go!

I've actually tried to recreate all the dodgy wallpaper covered jotters from school and believe it or not, I actually like this, for once!

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge

I've used a LotV fairy and stuck her in a cupcake...as you do!

Lots of Birthdays

Morning

Lots of cards to share this morning - all ones I have made for folk at work, so I tend to go for just general happy birthday ones. Starting to run out of ideas now and it's not like I only have to send one birthday card per person! Google here I come!!!










Thanks for dropping by today.

White Rabbit Syndrome....

I'm late, I'm late....

I'm so late in sharing this card I think the recipient has now had her 12th birthday! Or if it not, it's quite soon.

I used the birthday party invite as inspiration and have featured it on the card. The party was one in a recording studio so this Saturated Canary image was absolutely perfect.

Left On The Shelf

Well the toys are on the shelf...

I love this wee stamp, it's so cute! This is a card I was asked to do for someone leaving to have a baby. I wasn't sure if I should put a baby on it - even though they knew the sex of the baby it just didn't feel right so I went for this instead.

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

Things That Go Round

I've gone for records. They go round.... 

I love this new LOTV image and I decided I'd look for a jukebox colouring page so I've teamed her with that. Cut out a few record shapes using a Spellbinders die and there you have it.

FabNFunky Challenge

It's time for another challenge at Fab N Funky.

This time our theme is

Create a Background/Use a Background Stamp.

We're sponsored by Little Miss Muffet for this challenge who very kindly gave the DT some images to play with.

I had a LMMS image I bought ages ago, for no other reason than I loved it but actually had no reason to buy, this challenge however, was the perfect opportunity to break out Chester :) 

The card has now been claimed by Scott who loves monkeys and wants it in a frame!

Peeking James

Hello.

What could be better than a James the Bear card? A card with 4 James' on it?! This is a card I made last year for a wee girl in Scott's class. I suspect she's had another birthday since!

Wedding Blues

Morning.

Did you have a good weekend? Was it sunny? We had rain all day Saturday and yesterday the sun came out again and it was lovely!

On to today's makes. This is a card and gift I made for a wedding reception we went to recently. The invite had touches of blue so that's what I went with.

I Solemnly Swear......

Morning!

Did you watch the Eurovision last night? It's always a strange affair but I think I preferred it when they sang in their own language and I had no clue what was going on!

On to today's cards. A couple of Harry Potter cards I made, one fairly recently and the other one back in February.

I used my SNC for this one and a Harry Potter cut file and I downloaded a Mauraders Map which I went over with some Vintage Photo DI.



This next one I used a colouring page of the Slytherin crest. I was originally going to do a card with just the crest but in the end decided to make it look like robes!
