The Best Day

Morning.

Thursday already AND it's the last day of November!!! Not long to go until Christmas so I should really do something about organising myself.....

The elves will be here tomorrow on their annual visit from Santa, think they might be reporting me for being naughty. I haven't done a thing towards preparing for Christmas.

So, this is a card from earlier on in the year when my friend asked me to make a card for her sister in law.

A Star Is Born

Morning.

I was asked recently to make a baby card.... and would you believe it, it wasn't for a boy :(  However, it did give me an excuse to buy this lovely stamp from All Dressed Up.

Where Are You All Coming From?

Smurfland perhaps?!

Some cards to share today, all made for the same person! 

First Papa Smurf (yes, it was a request!), then Wolverine and finally a rock card!

Edited to add.... I've discovered last year's card for the same person I didn't share. Now that's really running behind.

Keep Calm. Drink Wine.

 Hello.

Normally on a Sunday evening, this is exactly what I'm doing!

Not this Sunday however, in a bit of pain with a sore neck so don't really feel like having a wee glass of anything.

Just a Bit Behind

Hello.

So, just a bit behind..... this is a Christmas present I made for a friend's daughter. Last year's Christmas present..... however, today seems like an appropriate day to share it as we're going to a fundraiser this evening for the gymnastics team.  See you thought I just threw all this together with no thought but no, it's all carefully planned*.....

*it's not

I cut lots of acrobatic shapes on the SNC and created a word art.

Fab N Funky Challenge

Morning.

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

This time our theme is

Inspired by Song/Book/Film

We're sponsored this week by Dr Digi

I've used Metal Mick and my song is For Those About To Rock - AC/DC.  This was made for a guy at work - we both enjoy heavy rock music and have now taken to taking over control of the radio on a Friday for "Rock Friday".  The card is specially nice to share this week in the wake of the death of the legend that was Malcolm Young.

Mainly Flowers. And a Butterfly.

 Morning.

Apologies for all of the photos in today's post! As you know I'm spring cleaning my cards to be shared and I thought I would share all of these at the one time as they're all for the one sad reason.  They're all sympathy or thinking of you cards.

I Can't Bear It....

Morning.

Monday again. 5 weeks today and it will be Christmas day...... I should really do something about getting organised!

Speaking of organised..... one of these cards is almost a year old - and the other isn't that far behind it. These were made for a girl leaving work and then for the baby she had a few weeks later. 

The wee bear was cut on the SNC - isn't he cute!

Buttons - MFT
Stitched Rectangles MFT
Safety Pin - Sweet Pea

And this baby card is a replica of the one I made for Jackie's first son, but she never got the card (long story but not my fault!) so I thought I'd use the design again.

Passing Out

Morning.

Is it a bit chilly where you are? There's been a noticable drop in temperature!

Today's card is one I was asked to make for recently for someone passing out of the army.  I've cut the soldier using the SNC and googled for the picture of his regiment!

Music In World Off


Morning

Continuing the Spring Clean! A couple of cards done with Brushos today, so much fun to be had in that little pot. 

I've used Visible Image stamps for both cards. I love playing with the Brushos and haven't done for ages so will need to do it soon but have so many other things that need doing first!

A Load of Balls

Morning.

Today's cards is one I made for the Boss! I found the idea on Pinterest - although as far as I remember there was no sentiment about birthdays being a load of balls.... 

I embossed some card using Swiss Dots and then cut circles. Made the pot and printed a golf score card. An old Quickutz Golf Tee die came to my rescue for the front of the card just to have something to go with the sentiment.
