Male Golfing Card

Afternoon peeps, trying to cram some crafting in today amongst other jobs.  Have done this male card using some decoupage I had made but not popping onto anything.  The challenges I have covered are Cards for Men - "Outdoors", Our Creative Corner - "Masculine Birthday" and Magical Crafts - "Black & White & Another".

It is quite a simple card with using black peel-offs for the sentiments and extra golf embellishments.  The Design Paper is from a Papermania Inspiration Paperpack..

Pussycats...... Strike A Pose!

Morning folks, the weekend again, where does the days go!  I am surposed to be getting organised for my holidays, ie. ironing - yuk! but instead I have sneaked to post this ..... he..he..he.

This card is for my of my closet friends whose birthday is a couple of weeks away.  I have included the challenges at Cute Card Thursday - "Someone Special", Stampavie & More - "Pink", One Stitch in Time - "Going Dotty" and Penny Black Saturday - "Flowers".

The image is one of my favourites from Penny Black, I have tried to 3D it too.  I popped some stickles on to just it a bit of sparkle. The design paper, I think, is from the English Paper Co. and flowers are from stash.  The quote is from DCVW.

These are some pics to my two wee babies, Onyx & Jazz enjoying some sun in the garden.  Don't let them kid you on - they are not as angelic as they

Holiday Countdown On.....

Evening peeps, hope you are all having warmer weather than we are at the mo - need to dig out all my jumpers out the cupboard again..  lol.  Trying to wind down for my holi-bags (a week on Friday) but I still need to do a few cards and time is running out - FAST!!!!!  I have used the fabulous sketch by Clare over at Moving along with the Times and both Cute Card Thursday and Stampin' for the Weekend have the theme "Male".

I used one of the fantastic range of boy's stamps from Lili of the Valley.  The DP is from a Papermania Inspirations pack.  I made the playstation symbols with a mixture of Nestie's and free-hand (you can tell which ones.... lol).  The sentiment is a rub-on.

Hoping to do a little more playing this evening after dinner and tick a few more of my list for people.

New Baby Card

Afternoon folks, lazy day for me today.  The Race Night went really well and we managed to raise over a whooping £1200 - isn't that fantastic!!!!!  Never got home 'til late last night so had a well deserved long lay.  The only problem now is that I have a dozy head on for the rest of the day ("what's new" I hear you all

So I have done a none-taxing-the-brain card, keeping it simple - which suits me just fine.  Very handy for me as across as Ooh La La their challenge is "Minimalist - white space essential".  I also covered Totally Papercrafts - "Stitching" and over at Creative Inspirations it is "Celebration".

The pram stamp, I think, is from Anita's and the blue gingham paper is from scrap drawer (cheated and used two pieces - the join is hidden under the image - hehe).  Sentiment is a blue peel off  popped on ovals cut out by my Nestie's.  The little ducky is a brad from stash.  Decorated the pram with some Stickles to give it a bit of sparkle.

Home Alone Sunday

Afternoon peeps, hope you are enjoying your May Weekend.  I am working tomorrow but I did have a really good day meeting up with some girly friends for lunch and a few glasses of wine and a chat - a few more drinks later and a visit to the local nightclub I toddled in at 2am this morning!!!!! Haven't done that for years - and must say, I still got those moves for the dance floor!!!!  lol

Barry has headed out up to Dundee, for the football end of year dinner and is staying over so I am home alone - Yippee!!!!!!!  - more dancing around the room!!! - lol.  Peace and quiet to play, play, play. 

This Penny Black image is just purr-fect for a guy's card.  The DP is from a paperpack I picked up in Stampaholics, Perth (which is a great Aladdin's cave) and used my oval Nestibilities and peel-offs (yes, printer still broke)
