Baby Card

Back again, this time with a recycled image (off an old shop bought birthday card) and re-using it to make a baby girl card.  The rub-on lettering, brad buttons & ribbon are all from stash box.  I am trying like mad to use as much 'stash' as possible because the craft fair at the SECC, Glasgow is on at the end of this month and I know I will have to practice my justification of "But I need it!"  The challenges covered with this card are:-

Birthday Card

A very good afternoon to you all.  Hope everyone is having a good weekend and for those who are on school holidays - good luck!!!  Sneaking on this morning with a birthday card I've made for my Auntie whose birthday is coming up soon.

The images are all Penny Black. DP are from DCVW - different paperstacks, ribbon and flowers are from stash. The challenges covered on this card are:-
Looking forward to just sitting at my table and playing, hopefully will come up with a few things rather than doing my usual of paper shuffling and replacing and general faffing around

My Girl, Lollipop

Hello again peeps,  PJ's are still on but housework is done... lol.  My list of cards still to do is not doing down any as I keep remembering others that are not written on my calendar... lol.  On the good side, more excuses to play - yeah!!!.

This is a little decoupaged card made today for a friend's wee one with this little girl I found in my box and I used up some card scraps.  The challenges covered on this card are:-

Get Well Soon

Good afternoon to all you lovely followers.  The weekend is here again and a chance to spend some time playing - woop woop!!!  I should really be popping to the shops to get Barry's birthday present (I'll do that tomorrow - have to get  my priorities right.  lol).  Now that the nights are getting longer I should hopefully be spending some of my evenings up at the table being creative  - never seems to work out that way though!!

I got a lovely surprise at my work yesterday, the courier delivered back the laptop all fixed - another woop woop!!! so I can blog again.  Even though we have the PC upstairs, it just didn't feel right - strange I know, but again, I am a bit weird full stop.

The image is one I have but I have no idea from it came I'm afraid.  The DP are from Papermania.  Sentiment printed off on computer.  Flowers and card candies are from stash.  The challenges covered are:-

Charity Update - We did it!!!

Just to let my lovely followers know that last night's Charity 10th Year Anniversary Band Night for the The Brionni Trust went wonderfully well.  It was a great night and a fantastic turnout.  The people where brilliant, we could not have done it without the help of so many folk.  As I said yesterday we were hoping to raise last night about £1600 to get us to our goal of £100,000 over the last ten years - well, we exceeded all expectations and the rolling total is now a staggering:-

                           over £101,000.......... Fantastic!!!

I can't believe it!!!  The generosity of everyone is truly awesome and every single penny raised is so appreciated by so many.

Laptop Crisis!!!!

Yep - I have done it again and broke the laptop.  I should know by now that electrical appliances and myself don't mix! ... lol.  Took the laptop to the repair shop on Thursday and it is "kaput" and I have lost all my photos from holidays & cards etc... Lesson to myself to start putting them on discs.  So I am using the PC upstairs.

I have not done as much crafting as I had hoped this week as been decorating and doing jobs in the garden and even they didn't go to plan...... with broken lights, freezer and ripped lino.

Anyway, I have managed to make a something.  Decided to get the heat gun out the cupboard to have a wee play and this is the result.

The embossed image is a stamp I think from a Do-crafts Goody Bag years ago.  The Snowflake embossing folder is used and I patted a cats eye chalk ink pad over it.  Ribbon and sentiment is from stash.  The challenges covered are:-
This afternoon I am busy helping making up food for a buffet for tonight.  We are holding our 10th Year Anniversary Charity Band Night on behalf of The Brionni Trust.  It will be a terrific night with a local band playing.  We are hoping to raise about £1600 tonight to get to our target of £100,000 since we started 10 years ago.
