What Do You Think?

Hello


It's Friday and it's the start of the October school holiday here. 

This time last year Craig was getting ready to go to London with the school! What a quick year that's been.

Perhaps that's what today's card is thinking about? Or not? Who can say?

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

Distressing

Not actually sure if it refers to the card or the making of the card, which I found very distressing.  This card, was in fact, in the bin - where I threw it in a fit of pique cos I decided I couldn't do the theme at all!

Anyway, here it is.

Sisterly Love

Morning.

It's Friday and this time next week the boys will have started their October week holidays. Seriously, where is the time going?!

This is a card I made for my friend's daughter to give her sister.   I've used the Faery Ink Sisterly Love stamp.  When I saw this I thought it was absolutely perfect, especially with the bow as the girls are known to wear these daft JoJo bows. You know the ones, they look like small satellites.  Anyway the card went down well with both sisters so that's a bonus!

Bubbles!

Morning.

Are you feeling bubbly? Yeah, me neither. It's Monday!

This is a birthday card I made for a friend to give her husband. I used the LOTV Congratulations set - think if I'd thought about it properly I would have made one of them bigger and the 40 smaller. Never mind though!

Hidden In The Wardrobe

Morning.

Thursday already and almost the end of September.  I really should start thinking about my Christmas cards..... maybe next week....

Today's card was one I made for a friend for someone leaving work to have a baby.  Thought I would try and create a baby's wardrobe with these Cuddly Buddly images.  I'm not sure how successful it was as I didn't really get a proper photo!

#Awkward

Hello.

A wee quick card with a stamp set I bought recently. I didn't make the card until too late, just so I could use this. Well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Big Sentiment. Small Cake.

Morning.

I suppose I could have gone the other way and that I could have made the cake big and the sentiment small.... but it worked for me this way.

This is a work card I made recently. It's always difficult to make cards for folks you don't really know!

A Cup of Love

Good morning.

An anniversary card to share today - one I made for friends' who have their anniversary in August.  Last year I sent them a card and I completely forgot to write in it so am hoping I remembered to do so this year.....

I used my very favourite DSP which was a wrench but it needs to be used, it can't be saved forever!

Dabbing is Life

Morning!

Can you believe we're halfway through September already? Our local shop has started to display Christmas treats and I saw mince pies in the supermarket the other day (but wasn't allowed to buy them!)

This is one of the birthday cards I made for Andy. This one is from Scott who will dab at every opportunity so when I saw this Little Miss Muffet image I thought it would be perfect.
