I have used the lovely Claudia from Sugar Nellie, embossed with my Cuttlebug folders, backing paper is from DCWV, flowers and sentiment tag from stash and finishing off with a little sandal charm.
Sorry it is a short post, hope all is well and hopefully back on soon.

Forever Friends Sketch

Good afternoon to one and all, hope you are having a jolly Wednesday. This is me just started to play after being blackafronted by my Wii-Fit. Thought I better go on it today as I knew I hadn't been exercising for a wee while. Well, I could just tell by the tone of it's voice it wasn't happy with Had not been on it for 119 days! Didn't think it had been that long! So feeling guilty I did very single exercise that was open, so now that my heart rate has gone down and the beads of sweat have disappeared from my brow I managed to do this little card for the Forever Friends Challenge, it is a lovely sketch from Emma.I love black and white at the moment so I decided to try and use up some of my scraps as my scrap folder is choc-a-bloc.

Colour Create #13

Afternoon again folks, I am so enjoying my day playing today. Watched the London Marathon, had to clean my specs at least half a dozen times listening to people's reasons, boy, makes you realise how lucky you are and how brave they are. Now I am onto watching a recording of the Formual 1 Grand Prix, had to wait on Baza getting in from the golf and him making the brunch.
I have had a go at the Colour Create Challenge, the colour combo this week was Orange, Green & Brown with the optional challenge of making it for a male. It was set this week by the lovely Jo, Boots the Monkey, check out her blog, her work is amazing.
On this card I have used the Clare Curd's stamps from Papermania and the backing paper from DCWV.
Thanks for peeking.

Creeping In..........Hello everyone

Sorry I haven't been on for a long time, I seem to have had a bit of a hectic week or so (either that or I have been abducted by
You don't have any nights out for as long and then they all come along at once. I went to the local Italian for a meal with the girls from work, unfortunately the waiters aren't the kind that swoo you off your feet, for starters one of them is Spanish and another Greek/Croatian (yeah, work that one out!) so they didn't have the usual Italian patter and secondly they are a bit......emm....mature if you catch my drift. Nevertheless, the food is amazing and lets face it, that is why I was Then the following night, Baza's Football Supporter's Club had a fun raising night at a local hotel where his nephew was playing in his band. They did really well but I did feel a bit out of place with all the "groupies" there, really felt my age plus I didn't know half the songs they Came home with a sore head... Gosh really showing my age now!!.. Then, the following day it was my Birthday!... so I had a lovely day, apart from working, but I got a red neck, that Baza sent me flowers at face was scarlet when the delivery guy handed me them right in front of the customers - total beamer!
Baza & me don't do birthdays, we do "Birthday Weeks" so most of this week I have been pigging out on takeaways and having one or two extra glasses for wine. It is also meant that I am to be waited on hand & foot but somehow that didn't happen to much this year - don't know if maybe I had been too my a me the the washing, ironing, hoovering, dusting, tidying, polished, gardening (if only that part was
So hopefully this is me starting to get back into some sort of routine again. This evening I have managed to make a card for the Just Magnolia challenge. The theme is Pink & Green so hopefully I have managed that.
I have popped the Tilda image onto a couple flowers from Poppicrafts, diecut swirlies from Nestibilities and the backing paper is from the Fantasy Range from Dovecraft.

Good evening everyone, can't believe that is us half way through this week already - time does fly! It is nice to potter about in the garden now that the nights are drawing out.

Charisma Cardz #13

Good afternoon everyone and I hope you are all fine and dandy. Gosh, I can't believe we are into April already, doesn't time fly. It is my day off today so the housework is done and now I can play!!!! I should really be in the garden, tidying it up and making it a bit presentable but instead I have the house to myself until Barry comes home from work so I am enjoying every moment - even the pussycats are out catching mice.
I have started with a fabulous sketch over at Charisma Cardz. I apologise in advance for the quality in the photos, it is dull and overcast here - typical, on my day off.
The sentiment does say "Birthday" - I wish I could take better photos. The image, I think, is a Rachel Ann Miller (but don't quote me on that) and flowers and brads from stash.
Speak soon.

Evening Peeps - 2 challenges

Evening all in Blogland, hope everyone is well. I must apologise for not being a good blogger at the mo. I promise I will get better, too much other stuff going on. I have managed 2 little cards so far this week and hopefully after posting this I am going to sit and attempt another while watching the footie with a nice glass of red.
My first one is a colour challenge from Magnolia v Stampavie, it is to use Black, White & Red with the option on Grey. Great Combo - especially as I had to do a male 30th Birthday Card for one of my friend's partners who's party we are going to on Saturday - so I will have to be on my best behaviour - Boo Hiss!

I used Edwin which has been lovingly coloured by Lesley & her magic promarkers. The backing papers are from my stash of DCWV papers (which never seem to go down like a peas pudding pot). The photo, I'm afraid, doesn't like my sentiment at the bottom very much but it reads "Celebrate Today".
My next card is for one of my good friend's Laura, who's birthday is only a couple of days after mine. I just could not resist to use one of my new Anya stamps which I HAD to have. I have used the brilliant sketch from Mojo Monday for this one.

Again DCWV papers, a bit of cuttlebug swirl embossing and gems & ribbon from stash.
Sorry it is such a short post and hopefully be back on soon.
