Celebration Time

Morning peeps.  How lovely has this weather been?  It feels so weird that just a week or so ago  we were in the minus degrees and now we are in the twentys - Scottish weather!!  It has put me in the holiday mode for jetting off to Corfu tomorrow morning.

We, the charity, had a fantastic night last night at our Race Night with over £1000 raised.  I on the other hand was not so fortunate I had seemed to pick all the donkeys and they are still running .... lol..  

This is a commissioned card for one of the girls at work for her daughter who has her First Communion today. The beautiful image is from Sugar Nellie, isn't she just adorable.  The diecut bible I bought from ebay.    Gems, peel offs and sentiment was stash.  The tools used was Nesties and an embossing folder.  The challenges covered today are:-
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and see you all when I get back.

Clean & Simple Stock Cards

Back again, this time with a sample from a batch of cards I had done for stock from The Brionni Trust as we have a stall coming up at The Scribblers Picnic, Stirling on the 17th June and panic has started to set in.  I have used the same layout on all of them with different images and colours on each.  

Ideal for this has been Stickeroos from Penny Black.  I also used for quickness (is that such a word?) has been sticky ribbon.  Please don't scrutinise my faux stitching too closely as there are one or two dodgy bits! To help jazz-up the plain card I have used my Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The challenges covered are:-

Step to it!

Morning all, Sunday already, it seems to come round quicker and quicker every week.  Got quite a few crafty jobs to  finish off today so I should really get cracking and then hopefully I should a little play of my own. Trying to cram everything in this weekend as next week we are off on holiday to sunny (hopefully) Corfu, a beautiful island.

This is another commissioned card I was to do,  for a Rangers supporting couple - hence the red, white and blue theme.  The stamp, First Dance, is from Sugar Nellie.  The heart backing paper is from Papermania. .  The  silver heart buckle is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Other tools used are Swiss Dots embossing folder and Nesties.  The challenges covered are:-

The Sun has Got His Hat On .....

Hip, Hip, Hip, Hooray!!!  ...... It feels such a long time since we have seen the old so the washing machine is on double time trying to get it out on the line to dry before he disappears again behind some big black clouds.  Even Barry has hurried out to try and tackle the wildness (aka the front garden) - I've tied a bit of string to his waist just in case he cannot find his way back out Oh, I am cheeky!

This goose stamp from Penny Black I've had for ages and I still think it is one of my favourites of theirs.  The circle sentiment stamp is from Lili of The Valley.  The piece of ribbon is recycled off a set of pyjamas it was wrapped around.  The backing paper is from my scrap drawer.  The challenges covered this morning are:-

Back In Action...

.... well, hopefully thanks to Lesley (aka Pinkles Dreams).  After a long time suffering with Blogger/Internet connection issues she suggested switching to Google Chrome instead of Internet Explorer and - fingers crossed (and toes) - it has worked and I can get back to normal -  Hip hip hooray!!!!!.

While I have mentally been throwing the computer out of window lol,  I have been busy making quite a few commissioned cards which all funds go to The Brionni Trust.  We have got  a busy time coming up for the Charity with a Race Night on the 26th May and then we have a stall at the Scribbler's Picnic, Stirling on the 17th June - we will have to get cracking making some more cards for stock for there as it a great day and lovely to see some regular faces.

Well, enough babbling on and get onto some crafting.... this is one of the commissioned cards I had to do on my list which is for a 21st Birthday.  The image is a Kenny K digi stamp coloured with my watercolour paints.  I had a little problem as I don't have promarkers, copics etc... so when colouring the printer ink on the stamp starting to bleed - oops - fingers crossed it is not that noticeable.  The stripey paper is from DCVW and the CD is an old recycled one.  The musical notes on the CD are peeloffs and the metal star is from stash.  The challenges covered are:-

Morning Madness

Good morning, good morning, good morning to everyone.  Hope you all are enjoying the weekend - especially if you are off for the Bank Holiday Monday.  Sorry I have not been on as of late, I don't know if it is me or Mr Blogger but I am having great difficulty in loading up sites, so slow and they keep not responding  (I am starting to get paranoid - hehehe).  So hopefully in a couple of hours time I would have actually posted this!!!

This easel card is a commissioned card for someone at work.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Embossing folder, I think is from Craft Too.  Diecut swirls are from Marieanne Creations.  Also used was my oval Nesties.  Ribbon and pearls are from stash.  The challenges covered today are:-
