I'm Late, I'm Late....

Morning.

Today's cards are a couple of cards I made for work with something else in common....

They're both belated cards. Oops.

The first is one for which the birthday happened while I was on holiday and I hadn't managed to make it before I went.

Choices Choices!

Morning.

Did you enjoy your extra hour in bed this morning or did small children or pets put paid to that idea?!

This is a birthday card I made for my friend's daughter (in July). Was just after I got my SNC and I was experimenting making a shaped age card. Think 8 was probably the easiest!


Couldn't make up my mind which image to use so I used two.

Friday Fabulousness

Morning

It's Friday and I have a fabulous card.... well, the word fabulous is on it. It may not be a fabulous card!

This is a card I made for my friend's birthday in June. Can't believe we were born in the same year and she was 50 yet I was only 29 in April.....

Teaching Crazy Cats

Morning.

Still sharing things I made some time ago. 

This is the end of term gift and card I did for Scott's teacher. Yes, I know it was at the end of June.......

The teacher Scott had in P6 was his favourite teacher. Ever. No other teacher will ever come close! 

It seemed appropriate to share these today as this evening we're off to a Primary 7 (I think that's year 6 to the English amongst you) transition meeting at the high school! My baby is growing up.

I can't remember what seller I bought this cut file from on Etsy but I wanted to try and make it look like a blackboard.

Bring On The Dancing H̶o̶r̶s̶e̶s̶ Unicorn


Morning.

Monday again. And nearly the end of October! Sheesh, it'll be Easter before we know it. You thought I was going to say Christmas didn't you?! Aye, well, that too.

Today's card is a nice cheery card for a Monday morning. Who could fail to smile at this sweet little unicorn I made for my boss' niece's birthday.

Magic Wands

Morning.

Do you ever wish someone would wave a magic wand and all the housework would be done? Yeah, me too!

Maybe the little girl in this card could use Teddy's wand to and do my tidying for me..... 

This is one I made for a friend's niece earlier on in the year and has just never been shared. Not even sure why, cos she's actually quite cute.

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

Favourite Colour Combo

Our sponsor this week is Live and Love Crafts.

I'm not sure I have a favourite colour combo. It really depends what I'm doing or what I'm making - so I went with a male card cos those are my favourite!

This is one of the birthday cards I made for Andy. This is the one from Scott - love this Saturated Canary image of a boy and his rhino (the rhino is Andy's favourite animal!).

Kept it fairly simple and just added a funny "sentiment".

A June Wedding (in October)

Morning.

A wee wedding card to share this morning. I was asked to make this ages ago (as you can see from the date but you know I never like to share things until months later!!). The brief was white, silver and a bit of dusky pink. I think this is dusky pink but they all look the same to me!

Leaving On A Jet Plane

Morning.

This is a card I was asked to make for a family emigrating to Canada.  I wasn't really sure which way to go so I printed a flag and a map and used some travelly things I had in my stash.  The suitcases are from Tiddly Inks.

All You Need Is Love

Morning.

It's half term here so the boys are off school - I have today off work but then that's me till Christmas. 

Craig arrived back late last night, tired but happy having had a fabulous break in London.

Today's card is one I was asked to make based on a birthday present for a friend's mum's 70th. It's a tree containing the names of all her grandchildren.

The tree was cut on the Scan N Cut and I used the MB Precious Hearts die to cut the little hearts.

Now That's Magic

Morning.

So yesterday I shared a card I had made for one of my friend's daughters. Well, this card is the one I made for her other daughter (in February....)

It seemed appropriate to share today as Craig is on his way back from his weekend in London but before they come home they are spending some time at the Harry Potter Exhibition. I'm not jealous at all. Oh no.....

Chin Chin

Morning.

A nice wee card to start the weekend with one I made for a friend who's niece was 21. I wanted to use Stamping Bella's Cosmobella and thought this was the perfect opportunity to do so. I went for a blue and white combo which I love!

Thursday Blues

Morning.

More from the archives this morning.

A couple of christening cards I was asked to make earlier in the year and both times I used this Digi Stamp Boutique cutie. 

Now that Lili of the Valley have brought their wee christening stamp out in digi form I bet I'll never be asked for another christening card!!

Birthday Buffalo

Morning.

An unusual card this morning - came from a request from one of the girls at work who wanted a card with a buffalo on it for her Dad, who's nickname is Buffalo Bill! Thank goodness for children's colouring pages which is where I found this chap.

I've partied him up a bit by giving him a party hat and some balloons and a wee birthday present!

Fill In The Blanks

Morning.

Back to Monday again! 

Today's card is an anniversary card I made for friends. However, they could actually use it for someone else as I forgot to write anything in the inside!

Just a simple card though but I really like it.
