Catching Up

Hello!

I hate this part of a holiday. The part where you come back from glorious weather with 2938923 loads of washing and it's chucking it down at home so you can't dry the aforementioned loads of washing. 

Back to work tomorrow for me although Andy has another week off - we've had to split the childcare this year, but the good news is that the boys and I are off for another wee break in a couple of weeks :) 

So, to today's card which is one of the many Father's Day cards I made this year (7 in total) this one was for my friend's son to give his Dad.

You'll see this image appear again (although not teamed with a panda!). The background is embossing paste with a brick wall stencil.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

This week our theme is

Red Hot Summer

That's a laugh eh?! Schools stopped on Wednesday and it's been raining every day since!

And here is my card, which actually is much brighter irl - it looks a bit dull in the photo! I've used a Mo Manning image and I wanted to make it look like he was actually shooting so I used a water droplets stamp from Inkylicious on acetate and then glossy accented them. The frame is double 3d'd on top of the image but you're not going to really get a sense of that from the photo.


Challenges I'd Like to Enter

To Be Or Not To Be....

Hello

Just a quick post as I'm really supposed to be finishing the packing! I have lots to share but I have just simply run out of time this week - I have Father's Day cards and Teacher's cards galore so I guess they'll just need to be a tad unseasonal and I'll catch up when I get back.

This is one of the Teacher's cards that Craig asked me to make for his Drama teacher who was leaving at the end of term on Wednesday. 

I've used a Make it Crafty image for the stage and the lovely Cass discovered this image for me which went perfectly - up till that point I was using something else which I wasn't terribly convinced by but when I saw this Tiddly Inks image I knew it was perfect for what I was after!

Make a card or other craft project using a Sugar Nellie image and this prize could be yours.

(remember the Sugar Nellie image - that's essential!)

I've used the fabby image Sweet Tea for my card and I've paper pieced her cup using some polka dot paper. This was a birthday card for a friend and the dotty cups reminded me of our fabby crafting weekend in Carlisle back in January.

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

Song Lyrics 

It's up to you how you interpret this - use a song lyric on your creation, be inspired by a song lyric etc....

We went to see Black Stone Cherry last week and so I decided to use one of my favourites from the gig as my inspiration. It's called Peace Is Free. I was hoping that in the Little Yellow Bicycle set that there was the word Peace but sadly there wasn't so I had to make do with Love Ya!

This is the chorus which inspired me.

Don't you bring your sadness down on me
When peace is free
There's a sun up ahead brother, waitin' on me
Can't you see
