She Passed

My daughter passed her driving test.....WOO HOO!!! 
She's never been a girly-girl and really does like fuss so the challenges at

 Crazy 4 Challenges - #324 sketch

I knew what to make, something simply and clean and slightly understated - just like she'd want
 I went through several different fonts to find the one I thought best suited this modest celebration. I carefully added a tiny amount of black ink to the edges of the L-plate befroe I ripped it, purely to make it stand out from it's white background. The road is some textured black card with a chalk pen to make the road-markings.
The inside had a bit more of congrats from us to her.

Back soon

Christmas Funk

We have a great challenge for you this week at

and this week our lovely sponsor is

and this weeks theme is 
It's never too early 
especially if it has a little twist

I had just a small piece of blue glitter card left but it was just enough to create the pull-out sentiment tag. 
The Bugaboo Snow-globe Ava digi stamp is simple and sweet, but it lends itself to a cas card too.

Fab'n'Funky Time again

We have a great challenge for you this week over at

#292 Male Birthday

This week our fabulous sponsor is
who is offering the winner 2 digis of their choice.

So without further ado
  This is Psychedelic Sid, isn't he great.
It's odd though, he really reminds me of someone but I just can't seem to put my finger on it

This was a very fun stamp to work with, I found some Neon Sharpies...yes NEON!
Some bright Doodlbug paper I had in my stash
A simple design with maximum colour impact but still masculine.

Well, I applied for the Analyst Supervisor job at work and there's only 2 days left till interview day.
 I can't remember the last time I felt this nervous.
All I can think is to just go in and be me and if that's not enough then that's not enough.
Still doesn't stop the nerves though.

Back soon with more cards/crafts and hopefully pleasant news.

See ya for now

Friday was a bit of a sad day at work.
Although we had known our Manager was leaving it didn't make it any easier.
I made his card and managed to get loads of people to sign it.
I would have joined in with last weeks "Fab'n'Funky Space Race" but I couldn't risk him seeing his card before the presentation.
Why would he see you cry? Elementary my dear Watson, the cheeky beggar reads my Blog!! LOL
(Hello trouble, ice-cream with the family at Bluebells in a couple of months?)

But look at this scary bunch
A great night was had by all.

I'm definitely joining in this week so keep your eyes peeled

Back soon

Another masculine birthday

Well that's another birthday taken care of and I think he liked his card. The ladies will soon start having birthday at work, so back to frills and flowers soon. But for the moment it's just been the men.
I'm entering this card into the
I have used one of my recent-ish purchases from LOTV
 Sorry my photo isn't too good but I only remembered to take a piccie as I was on my way out of the door.
I like this stamp because it's ageless.
And the little dog is quite cute too.
I used a simple and reasonably clean design so the image could be the focus of the card. The corner foliage and Happy Birthday are from the Tattered Lace starter pack.

Back soon with another card that I can't share till after Friday.

All Creatures Great and Small

Hello again,

this week at Fab'n'Funky Challenges we are celebrating "all creatures great and small" with our sponsor

And here is a very sweet digi stamp called "Having Tea"
 I decided on a fairly simple design because I didn't want to take the attention away from our little friends.
An oval die, I felt, gave the best frame shape for this image. Gives it a coziness.
I just added a few simple die-cuts and a two-tone ribbon.

Back soon with more
