Don't Look At Me That Way......

Morning.

I'm here to share the Father's Day cards I made for the boys to give Andy.  My friend said that they were brilliant and I had captured both boys perfectly.  I think that's it now, I'll never be able to top that.  Bought cards from now on!!

Summer of Sport



Started on Thursday for me - it's the World Cup.  I love the World Cup and try to watch as many games as possible.  There have been 4 so far and I have seen all for (or at least bits of the 2nd one as I was at work and had it minimised in the background!)

So my card today is a football themed one - bet you're suprised eh?! Football Al is playing for Brazil, the team that Scott has tipped to win.... and he's wearing Couthino's boots and is kicking a World Cup football. I'm nothing if not thorough.

Hello again.

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

This time our theme, set by the lovely Chris, is

I didn't manage to use a Bugaboo image (our lovely sponsor this week) but I did manage a nice bright cocktail! Could just do with one of these right about now  - the sun is over the yardarm somewhere in the world right?!

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've used an favourite old stamp for this one! I've teamed her with a LOTV Stroppy Sentiments.  I've paper pieced her dress but I've added a wee spot of shading to it too, first time I've tried that.

Fantastic Day


Good morning.

Now if I was really organised, I would be sharing all the beer cards today.  But I'm not so there's just the one... for now.

A work birthday card and for a change I didn't use a square card *keels over*.  Kept it fairly simply but I actually really like this one.

Sad Face


Hello.

I have suddenly realised how many cards I haven't shared with you! Don't want to be running at the last minute at the end of the year to get them all out there... I thought I had turned over a new organised leaf. Clearly not.

This is a card I made for a friend leaving work so it was one for us all to sign! He's still very much missed around the office.

Time For Tea Designs Card

Hello again, I'm back with my Time for Tea card for today.

Sorry about the blog post title, I couldn't think of anything snappier! I asked my friend who came up with "Don't Do It" and Scott who came up with "Jimbob McFluffles" and then when I said it was for a wedding card he suggested "Jimbob McFluffles Wedding".....

I've used an image from the new wedding release and it's called First Dance. I've cropped them down as I wanted to try and make the groom look like he was wearing a kilt....well, I tried ;) The sentiments are available in the full wedding collection.

I love paper piecing - and now I've discovered paper piecing with digi paper on a digi image I love it even more.

This one however, has not been done that way and I printed the image over a scrap of this black polka dot paper.

Try Defying Gravity

Hello.

A couple of weeks ago some friends and I went through to Edinburgh to see Wicked. What an awesome day we had and the show was absolutely amazing. When I saw this Faery Ink image of Elphaba I knew I had to make cards for the friends I was with.

I used my scene hill die but vertically rather than horizontally to try and mirror the Wicked poster.  It was such a fun card to make!

Queen's Man


Hello.


Last night we were so proud and honoured to be at the City Chambers for the presentation to 84 Queen's Men of the Glasgow Battalion of the Boys' Brigade.  The Queen's Badge is the highest honour they can achieve and there's a lot of hard work and dedication go in to gaining it.

So proud that Craig was one of those Queen's Men and I made him a card to celebrate.  I just used a colouring page of the BB emblem but I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out.


And a couple of photos of the night.

Shake Your Tail Feather


Hello again.

I'm back with my Time for Tea card for today.

I've used the new release for my card today - so versatile. 

This wee chick is out for a party! I've added a tail feather for her to shake too - no birds were harmed in the use of this feather.

Age and Glasses of Wine

Should never be counted!

Is it really only Tuesday? Really?

What an awesome weekend just gone.  The much anticipated trip to see Wicked was awesome and the whole day was just fabulous with brilliant company.

This is a card I made for my brother in law back in January... oops!  The photo isn't that great, but I liked the card so thought would share it anyway.
