Silver Wedding

Morning.

Today's card is a card for Cass (of Crafty Cabin fame) and her husband who celebrated their silver wedding when we were away on holiday so I had to wait until we came back to deliver it. I went simple with white and silver.

An L of A Card

Morning....

Well, no, it's not really but it was for someone passing their driving test! I have realised how many bear cards I have to be shared. And here is another one although this time I've made him a grey bear!

More Bears....

Morning.

Remember the other day I shared the PB bears and said they'd come to my rescue again... this is the card I had planned to be making when I remembered about the CASS DT card!

This is a card I made for my friend's daughter and it's the one we gave her. I've even given one of the bears a JoJo Bow. Have you seen these things? They're the size of small planets!! So glad I have boys!!!

Fore!

Hello.

Goodness I've just looked at the time!  Bit of a late one this evening.

Today's card is one I was asked to make a few weeks ago.  

I've used the Just Inklined Golf Bag for a golf themed card - perhaps I should have left sharing this one until the Open starts at the end of the week... never mind.

As always it's Anything Christmas Goes

The PB Bears came to my rescue (as they so often do!)

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, I'm back from my holidays in Sunny Menorca - who switched the heating off? Got to be honest, I'm missing the sun and the cocktails! 

So, back to business - it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

This week our theme is

Christmas in July

I've gone for James the Bear - you can't really go wrong with James! Kept it simple though and just gone for the same shades.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' - I've scheduled this post as we're off in the sun on our holidays so fingers crossed Mr B is playing the game and has actually published it!

This week our theme is

As you can see I went for the macarons rather than the colours.... wonder why that was?!

Better Late Than Never

Morning

A wee last post before we go away on our hols. We'll be up really really early tomorrow morning so I think a post will be the last thing on my mind.

These are a couple of belated cards to share today both work ones (although to be fair, I wasn't actually asked for one of them until after the birthday but it seemed to good an opportunity to miss to make a funny belated card)

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

Stars and Stripes

You need to look carefully to see the stripes, but they are there!

This was a card I made for the wee girl next door. I bought this LOTV fairy set when they had a sale on recently and thought this one would be perfect for teaming with the Happy Birthday border punch I found when I was tidying up!

Shhhhhhh

Morning.

I'm not here. I'm packing......

OK, I am here, and I am chilling with a cup of tea and the Gilmore girls even though there's still loads to do before we go away on Monday.

I've used a Stamping Bella for today's card which was one for someone to give her friend for her birthday.

Socks!

Morning.

Something a little different today - well, different in that it isn't a card.

This is a frame I made for Craig a wee while ago (and to my shame, it's still not hung in his room). He'd seen one just like this when we went to ComicCon and he asked if I could make him one so I went on a Google search for Dobby colouring pages!

Perhaps today is the day. I'm trying to tidy the house, while packing for our holidays (we're away Monday) so I might just find a wee space to hang this in his room!

Fab N Funky Challenge

Morning.

It's time for another challenge at Fab N Funky. This time it's hosted by our lovely Wends.

This time our theme is

Christmas

We're sponsored this week by All Dressed Up.

I've used Shepherd Boy for my card. Kept it fairly simple and if I'd had a different shaped star I would have changed it for that but I'm happy with the way it turned out.

The End of An Era

Hello.

Today marked the end of an era for our family, it was the last day at school before the 7 weeks of the school holidays begin. However, this was also the last day at primary school for Scott as he goes to high school in August. I can't believe it - the time has gone by in a flash.

So today's card is the card I made for his teacher.



School Boy - Tiddly Inks
Sentiment - Digi Stamp Boutique
Copics
Stitched Rectangles - Memory Box

And here are some photos of the boy himself. The first is first day to last day and the second is after school finished and he came out with his shirt all signed by some of the children in the school (not just the Primary 7's!)




And another wee card to share, I made this for a friend's daughter to give her teacher - but they don't finish until tomorrow (although it's unlikely the teacher is going to be reading my blog!)



Thank You Teacher - Digi Stamp Boutique
Copics
Letters - Memory Box
Stars - Memory Box


So that's it. 7 weeks of the holidays are upon us. Pass the gin!

A Can Of..... Flowers

Morning

A little flowery card to share today. One I was asked to make for a special birthday (but without an age!)

Oops

Hello.

Are you basking in the heat or are you just a little on the warm side? This is so unusual for Scotland!!

So yesterday was Father's Day but I completely ran out of time to do cards for Andy so I had to buy some. Oops. However, I did make one for an order for someone....

Fab N Funky Challenge

Hello again

It's time for another challenge at Fab N Funky.

This time our theme is

Vintage

We're sponsored by The Paper Shelter for this challenge and they were kind enough to give the DT a couple of images to use. I've used Charmingly Hippy for my card. Now I'm not sure that a '70's inspired card actually qualifies as Vintage but there you go!

I've actually tried to recreate all the dodgy wallpaper covered jotters from school and believe it or not, I actually like this, for once!
