Creative Card Crew

Morning everyone.  Had a fantastic time at the Craft Fair over the weekend and will pop on a couple of photos of my goodies.  Was at a Christening yesterday and this is the card I made for Eilidh and since the challenge over at Creative Card Crew is "Children & Babies" it is quite apt.

The bear image is from Sugar Nellie Homegrown range, the teddies and balloon are diecuts and the backing papers are from DCVW Spring Stack.

Simon Says............

Evening all,  typing this with a sniffling nose and a sore throat,  me thinks one is getting a cold so I am popping this on before I forget and then trotting off upstairs with a hot water bottle to my bed before I pass it on to you lovely lot.

This is another christening card I was to make and I used the lovely sketch by Dommi over at Simon Says.  The image is from Magnolia and papers are from DCVW Spring Stack.

My Time to Craft

Hello again,  the challenge over at My Time to Craft is "Quick & Cute".  This is for my step-father, who is 70 today, we are popping up to visit this evening as they have been away for a few days.

I have used an image from High Hopes stamps, they are so cute.  Coloured with watercolour paints and then chalked background.  Paper is from K & Co.  Peel-offs coloued with black marker pen & Nesties have been used


Moving along with the times

Across at Moving Along With the Times it is "Anything but a Card" so I thought I'd better show you one or two things I have been upto while not blogging.  Trying to think off differnt ideas to do for the Christmas Stall is not easy.  They usually come to me in the height of summer and then when it is time to put them into practice then "poof"  they have disappeared from brain!!!  So far I am upto my eyes in Snowman Poo!!!

Used a stamp from a Hario clear stamp set,  Nesties and clear bags and tiny Marshmellows (Yuk!, don't like them myself!!!)

Also I have been making bookmarks just using stamped images, and stuff out my stash to decorate them.  The bookmark template is taken from the Book-a-trix Board from the Glitter Girls.

I have on my list still to do is Reindeer Poo, Decorated Candles, Gift Voucher Wallets, Keyrings, Phone Charms.......oh..........and some

Any other suggestions of items is very, very much appreciated as the old grey matter has been tested this year!!!!

Morning everyone.  No, I have not fallen through the centre of the earth or been abducted by Aliens but I feel I have been missing something - and it is YOU LOT!!!!!!! hopefully I will have a bit more time to play.

This is one of the commissioned cards I have to make a christening coming up (again all funds go to the Brionni Trust).  I have used a Gorjuss Girl image from Sugar Nellie, Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder, paper is from stash as is ribbons & flowers.  I am just waiting to find out what wording they are wanting on the front which I am going to pop on the lower left hand side.  I combined the following challenges into the card:-

I am off out this afternoon to prepare a buffet for the band gig we are having for the Trust tonight.  My culinary skills are not the greatest so I think I will be placed on the cheese butties! the washing up!.

Truly Scrumptious

Afternoon everyone and I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  Sorry I have not been on much but been making stocks of cards the the Christmas Charity Sales,  they are coming around fast and so scared that we havn't got enough made.

Having a time out as I have some birthday cards to make this month for family members.  This one is for Bazabing whose birthday is this weekend coming and we have a "birthday week".

The sketch over at Truly Scrumptious is fantastic with the added challenge of "doodling".  The image is from Papermania's Clare Curd range.  Papers are from K & Co "Hopscotch" range.
