Let's Hear It For The Boy

Morning, a wee Sunday earworm for you....

So it was a friend's big birthday through the week and his wife had arranged all manner of surprises - a video with lots of folk (some famous, some not so) and the music playing in the background was Let's Hear it For The Boy.

There was a surprise party on Friday (although it also contained a suprise gig by one of the birthday boy's favourites Findlay Napier). A good night was had by all.

And this is the 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

I Wish I Could Fly

So rather than a fairy or an aeroplane which is what I would normally use I've gone for a dragon.... well it has wings and it flies.....

This is a birthday card I made for a friend!

I've just use some distress inks to create a background and stamped some swirls and the sentiment in black. I stamped the stars using London Fog so they were a bit paler. The dragon is a Sweet Dixie die that Scott liked and asked me to buy....


Sentiment - Paper Smooches
Swirls/Stars - can't remember!
Dragon - Sweet Dixie
Numbers - Quickutz

Better Late Than Never

Hello.

For a short week that was quite a long one! 

So I meant to share this the other day but it went completely out of my head.  We went for Easter Sunday dinner to friends and I made an Easter card (late on Saturday night when I decided I needed to!)

I've used a Digi Stamp Boutique image and merged it with another DSB image (the sign, which I've paper pieced and typed in a sentiment).

Hello.

I've realised how many unshared cards I have. I'm not sure how I've managed to do that, I was clear but somehow they've all built up again!

So here's a card from the tail end of last year which was for one of Scott's friends.

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas At Sweet Stampin'

As always it's Anything Christmas Goes.

I know it's only April, but I might have found my design of Christmas card! This was so easy. And could be quick. If I started now. But you know me, I won't......

I used Colour Cloud ink to colour the base card and used a new die I got a few weeks ago at Sincerely Yours. Simples.



Sentiment - Just Rite Stamps
Shooting Star - Will check make of die
Colour Cloud Blending Ink

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

Mellow Yellow

So lots of yellow on your cards this week please!

This is a card I made for a friend to give her step mum. She asked for yellow roses so I think I fullfilled the brief. Another friend really likes yellow on cards as it's a nice happy colour - I'm not so sure about using it tbh!

Rose Die - MFT
