Moving Along With The Times Challenge


Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Moving Along With the Times.

This week our theme is the sketch below. This is our last challenge until 8th January so you have plenty time to enter!


Here's my take on the sketch - I've altered it slightly because I've put the two corner elements on top! I'm sure the Boss won't mind - it's Christmas,she might not even notice ;) 

This is a card I made for a friend's daughters to take to their cousin's Frozen themed birthday party! I hope the birthday girl liked it.

Golden Years

Hello from a wet and miserable Glasgow. Oh, sorry, cold, wet and miserable Glasgow!

A few weeks ago I was asked to make a couple of Golden Wedding anniversary cards for a couple who were having a party to celebrate although the actual date wasn't until yesterday so here I am sharing these cards with you today.

The second is a variation on what I've done before but I used a corner nestie for this first one and I think it looks really effective - although if I'm honest it was a complete pain trying to get the little bits out of the die (oh she of little patience!)

Moving Along With The Times Challenge


Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Moving Along With the Times.

This week our theme, chosen by our lovely Red, is

Christmas Climate (so if you're in a cold country for Christmas then a snowy, wintery card and if you're in a warm country then Santa on the beach!)

I've used a Digi Stamp Boutique image which I bought after visiting one of my lovely bloggy friends Sue's blog. She's good at making me buy images, cos I see the beautiful cards she's made and I want the image! The bear reminds me of Scott's teddy bear so this might be a card for him (Scott, not the bear).
