Baby Stepper Card

Afternoon peeps.  Just back from one of our Christmas Craft Fairs with The Brionni Trust, and we managed to raise £73, not to bad for a few hours work and that it wasn't very busy.  One down and one to go tomorrow.  Just posting this while having a well deserved cup of coffee and swithering whether or not to head up to my table for a wee play.

Had a great day yesterday at the Hobbycrafts Craft Show in Glasgow.  Stocked up in all my essential items and managed to grab a couple of bargain buys at the same time.  Surprised myself though - I never indulged in a must have purchase *note to self* must try harder the next time! .... lol.. 

Now, I warned you all I was into making Stepper cards - and there's another one, a boy's christening card.
The main image is a diecut image from Lili of the Valley.  The little teddy bears & ducks are cut from funky foam by Sizzix Paddle Punches and decorated by using Liquid Pearls and a black marker.  The challenges covered are:-

Golfer's Glory

Morning peeps.  How is everyone.  Sorry I have not been on as late, I have been up to my eyes in reindeer, snowman & ghost poo!  The Brionni Trust has two (yes two) craft stalls next weekend on Saturday & Sunday so I'm manicly trying to make items to help fill the table.  I had plans to make so many other gift items but have quickly ran out of time...... * Note to self * Start making gifts for next year in January

Barry is doing really well after his operation last week to is going back to work tomorrow (Monday).  He had a quiet celebration for his 40th birthday as wasn't really up for a big bash.  This is the stepper card I made for him since he is a keen golfer.

The digi image is from Kenny K, coloured with my whisper pens.   The diecut trophy & fence shapes are from stash as is the metal stars. Metallic confetti is recycled  from last year ( My 40th\) .  The Scoreboard I made designed myself off the computer.  The challenges covered are:-

Don't Mess with my Tu-tu

Afternoon peeps - Yay! - It's the weekend - Whoop Whoop! Hope you are all looking forward to it.  I am playing Nurse Nancy this weekend.  Barry had an operation on his nose yesterday (which was also his 40th Birthday) and has been discharged today so I am at his beck and call for the next few days until he is back on his feet.  I am hoping to get a few hours in for playing though - fingers crossed.

This card is one I had made a week or so ago but never got round to blogging.  I am loving making stepper cards just now.  The beautiful decoupaged image is a Paintbox Poppets one from Crafter's Companion.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Sentiment printed off computer and the pearls are from stash.  Tools used are the Script embossing folder from Cuttlebug and Marianne Creations Swirl Diecut.  The challenges covered are:-

Paperplay Challenges  -  Simply Cute
Totally Gorjuss  -  Anything Goes

Apologises for not being on Blogland for a while,  for a wee change I've had a diary full of night outs so not had much chance for a wee chance to play at my table.  I have also been doing a few commissioned cards for peeps which I can share with you all when I can get the chance...

Also we nipped away on a weeks holiday to Lanzarote which was great.  We needed a week to relax and enjoy some kind of sunshine.  Was a bit of a shock to the system though landing back in Glasgow to freezing weather ..... brrrrrr ... heating straight

So this weekend I have been looking forward to getting all sticky and covered in glitter easy pleased me!  Last week was a week of 70th Birthdays with Barry's mum and my mum hitting this milestone. This is the Easel Card I made for Maisie, Barry's mum to mark her special birthday.  

The sentiment was printed off the computer, Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Gems, peeloffs & ribbons are from stash.  Tools used are leaf punches, embossing folders & Oval Nesties.  The challenges covered are:-
