Monday Card

What a busy drizzly day. On the plus side Mawgan made lasagne for dinner, the new door is being fitted tomorrow and our new shower should be here by lunchtime. (the old shower developed a fatal wiring burnout).

I have made a quick challenge card;

This is the sketch they set and here is the card I whipped up

I had to quickly make a card as my youngest only reminded me at dinner that it was her friends birthday.

And since she would have left for the birthday meal before I got home from work tomorrow it didn't give me much time.

Well, Pancake day tomorrow and I made sure I had some maple syrup in the cupboard ready.
As well as some blueberries :-)

Back again soon

Share that Loved Up feeling

Hello again,

Yes, I'm back again. I really have been crafting my heart out recently and I have another card to share.
I have based my husbands valentines card of the Colour Q challenge

Colour Q Challenge # 279

I loved the idea of using newspaper in my creation.
I have used a mix of dies - Xcut Loveheart and Tattered Lace Kaleidoscope Corner (cut in S.U.Basic black & Real red cardstock). The newspaper is our local telegraph. The sentiment stamp is WMS compact sentiments.

Inside I used this cute Fizzymoon stamp.
I coloured in his love-hearts with Promarker ruby.

I hope you have all had a lovely valentines day.

Big Hugs

Busy Busy Birthdays

I am looking forward to the end of February. Birthday after birthday and Valentines day....Aaaaaarrrrgh!
I am still working on my sons 21st birthday card, but at least I have now finished my sis-in-laws card.
My inspiration for her card came from the sketch on
I liked the simple clean lines and decided to stick close to the challenge sketch, plus I just bought a couple of Gorjuss stamps at the weekend and needed to use them

I am quite pleased with how it came out. Carole (sis-in-law) and I normally send each other cheeky/sarcastic cards, so I thought I'd shock her by giving her a mildly girly card this year. The flowers were made with Tattered Lace dies, the ribbon was out of a new top (god bless hanging ribbons), the sentiments (inside also) are from Clarity stamps, colouring-in was done with ProMarkers and the cardsstock is S.U. Daffodil delight and Slate grey.

The insert paper is a very old printable papers I almost forgot I had. It came very close to being deleted. I'm afraid I can't remember the design or make.

I also got a very pleasant surprise yestarday. My dear friend Debs (DebsGems) sent me a beautiful card/letter, which I will share when I've taken a picture of it.
I really need to get all these cards finished first.

Goodnight all

Bit of a challenge

A little bit on the chilly on the way to and from work today.
At least it's finally starting to get lighter in the evenings.

I decided to make another challenge card and

was the perfect challenge for another male colleagues birthday card. (I'm in charge of birthday card for our section.) He's a little football mad
I decided B&W with a tiny bit of colour would be the best way.
This little chap is LOTV Super Striker, I used various Cool Grey Promarkers, layered some SU grey and black card, plus two small pieces of yellow and red card.
The football has dimension as I double stamped the image then cut the ball out, placed it image side down in my palm and rubbed my finger over the back. I added two small foam pads and pushed the edges down.
Now I just have to hope it's a hit at the office.

Very busy day tomorrow so I shall sign off for now
Back soon

A quick Hello with a challenge card


Goodness what an absolutely mental month January has been. I can't believe it's already over.

Not to worry though, back to the important business of crafting.
I have a few items to share this evening, firstly a birthday card. A masculine birthday card! But also a challenge card

This is one of my favourite stamps from LOTV and I think I have found the perfect way to get a giggle from it.

He does have a lovely puzzled look, so the question marks were a must. Note I have double-stamped the one above his head

The letter tiles are from Clarity stamps and the Question mark is a very old See-Ds stamp.

I have also gone back to making amigurumi, I saw a gorgeous pattern for a kokeshi doll and just had to have a go.

I put a AA battery in the photo to give an idea of size.

I still need to add the keychain to her hair-bun

Well it's time to turn in, work is bound to be hectic in the morning

back soon with a work in progress

Buffy xx
