CAS Crimbo Card

Yes, you read it right, Christmas in June....Urghhhhh!!!  Now its only 180 odd days to go until the big day is upon us again so I have put on my girl guide hat (and woggle) as I am going to 'be prepared' this year for a change, well that's the plan anyway....lol..

This is a very quick and simple card.  The cheeky wee penguin stamp is the very first stamp I bought.  Circles cut out with my Nestibilities.  Mounted on some scrap black card embossed with my Snowflake folder.  I put some silver border peel-offs amount the top and bottom of the black panel.  Card is finished off with a peel-off sentiment.  the challenges covered are:-

Sun? ... Where are you?

Good morning from a very wet and damp Wee County.  Weird thing is this climate change, as it is hard to believe that the southern parts of the country are having a heatwave and drought while us, just up the road are still living in our wellies and macs ....lol...  I think it is safe to keep the BBQ in the shed for yet another year  - yay!, I hear you all say, no food poisoning!... hehe.

The thistle stamp is one a bought from a craft fair years ago so I'm afraid I don't know the maker.  Tartan papers from stash as is sentiment, ribbon and card candys.  Tools used were my Snowflake embossing folder and square nestibilities.  The challenges covered are:-

Gone fishing

Good evening peeps hope you are all well.  It's a soggy Wednesday here in Central Scotland, not a great surprise to be honest, it would be nice to see what the sun looks like from time to time though...lol .... My suntan from my holi-bags is fading fast as it is being washed away, never mind only 10 weeks until we are away again - this time to Rhodes - can't wait as I love Greece.

Managed to have a wee play at my table tonight while Baza is upstairs in his 'games room' playing on the playstation and talking to his cyber-pals.  The image is from Lili of the Valley, papers, sentiment and brads are from stash.  Tools used are embossing folders and square nesties.  The challenges covered are:-

The one that got away...

..... well, my lost post never returned.  It is still up there in cyber-space floating around.  Not being a technical type of girl I have no idea how to get it back so I thought it best just to re-post a picture of the card.

The decoupage woman is from Paper Nation.  The backing paper from Little Claire Designs.  Sentiment printed off computer.  Other tools used are Sizzix alphabet 'Mano Tango',  Hexagonal & Oval nesties.

Wedding Card


Good afternoon peeps, hope you are all having a lovely weekend in Blogland.  The middle of June and I have had to pop the heating on - where is summer!?!  - it is wet and windy here in Central Scotland.  Such a shame too as alot of the local towns and villages close by are having their Gala days today and tomorrow. 

The Brionni Trust have a stall at the Scribbler's Picnic in Stirling tomorrow and I am seriously thinking about popping out this afternoon and getting myself a pair of wellies! - come rain of shine it is always a fun day there and local reports are that Gamu (from the X Factor) is singing on the main stage.

I've have chance for a wee play at my time and made this wedding card.  The diecut bride & groom have been in my stash from year dot mounted on rectangle Nesties embossed by my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.   Flowers, silver heart & pearl buckle are from Wild Orchid Crafts, swirls diecuts are by Marianne Creations and leaves are punches.  Sentiment, silver ribbon & pearls are all from stash.  The challenges covered are:-

Celebration Time (Come on)


Good evening to all my Blogland buddies.  I must apologise for not being on a while, been a wee bitty busy of late with holidays, 40th birthdays,  helping fundraising for The Brionni Trust.  But now my social calender is slowly returning back to normal (i.e. empty ....hehe) I hopefully should be back to posting regularly again. 

I was asked a few weeks ago to make a graduation card for someone qualifing to become a Podiatrist.  This City Girl stamp is from Whiff of Joy, coloured with my "the works" paints.  The little feet are made with a Sizzix Paddle Punch and handmade the scroll.  Sentiment printed of the computer and zig-zag border done with MS punch.  The challenges covered are:-
