Baby Boy Stepper Card

Good evening peeps, hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.  My lost post has never turned up - so must be lost in Cyber-Space for ever more ..... sometimes I think I end up there too.... hehehe.

I really enjoyed making this card as a had chance to experiment and play with this card, as I had never made the little baby booties as a card box before.  Also managed to get any excess aggression out by using my Sizzix duck & teddy punches and hammer... lol.

The woman and baby image is from Whiff of Joy.  Gingham paper was from stash and sentiment was printed off computer.  Other tools used where Nestibilities, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, blue chalk ink for colouring round edges.  Liquid pearls to decorate ducks & teddies.  The challenges covered are:-

Lazy Sunday Afternoon

Afternoon my good friends.  Deceided to have a very lazy day today.  Barry is away for the day and night, so wonderful peace and quiet - braw!!! So I can just plod about the home doing my jobs (and cards) at my own pace.  And with just me and the pussycat's later on ther will be no fighting over the TV changer ....hehe. 

This is a clean and simple card just using some white pearlesent card.  I used by new Marianne Creations Butterfly diecut and decorated it with some clear gems.  Other tools used were my Cuttebug Swiss Dots and Divine Swirls embossing folders and a Martha Stewart Border Punch.  The white ribbon and sentiment are from stash.  The challenges covered are:-

Bonjour! .........

....... I'm afraid that is about my limit of my French.  I am hopeless at learning languages, it literally goes in one ear and out the other!!  We are heading to Greece for our holidays in a few weeks time and the phrase book comes with me every time as I can never remember the basics from one year to the next.

The Gorjuss Girl image is from Sugar Nellie, coloured with watercolour paints.  The Designer Paper is from K & Co.  The Eiffel Tower & suitcase diecuts are from stash, as are the camera brad and air mail stamp.  Sentiment circle stamp is from Lili of the Valley.  Tools used were my new Marianne Creations diecuts.  The challenges covered are:-

Which Doctor?.........

Well, I rather liked George Clooney as Dr Ross, or Richard Chamberlain as Dr Kildare, but I like my favourite still has to be David Tennant as Doctor Who  (although Matt Smith is doing a fabby job at the moment too!!!).  I'm more a Sci-Fi geek freak than a slushy smooth talker fan and I would like a wee hurle is the T.A.R.D.I.S. anytime to face the Darleks or the Cybermen.

I have had this stamp from Whiff of Joy for ages and finally have managed to make a card with him.  Quite a simple card with lots of embossing with my Cuttlebug folders using up some plain white and blue card stock. Inking round the edges with a red chalk ink. I don't have a Get Well sentiment stamp so used some peel-offs.  Other tools used was a Martha Stewart border punch and Oval Nesties.  The challenges covered are:-
