Doesn't Time Fly - The Last in The Trilogy

Hello.

The last one that's properly old.  Well, some of the others might be as old, but you won't be able to tell really as they're not for specific times of year, like this....

Doesn't Time Fly

Hello.

My tardiness has reached new levels - the next 3 cards I'm going to share are months old! Especially this first one. I think it might be 18 months old.

Better late than never?!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.

This week our theme is 

Bright and Beautiful

I've got two cards this week as they're both bright - not sure beautiful is the word but I couldn't choose between them so you're getting them both.

The first is a thank you card that I was asked to make for a girl at work's wee boy to give to his nursery teachers as he left to start school!

This second one is the birthday card I made for the much missed boss of Sweet Stampin' Abi. I spent ages trying to get the flowers the way I wanted them and I'm still not sure they're right! I'd be rubbish at flower arranging.

As always it's Anything Christmas Goes (this time with the optional theme of trees)

I've used the fabulous Tree Lot from VeraLaneStudio which I've paper pieced to make a fairly simple card. I love it though.

Your Fabulous is Showing

Hello.

Ever realised how many cards you make in a year?! Yeah, just starting to realise it's quite a lot now that I'm trying to share them all.  I think if we don't have new year until March I'll probably get through them (and that's with some that you won't ever see blogged!)

This is a card I was asked to make for someone's sister.  Love this Krista Smith image.

Sweet Stampin Challenge

Hello. Blogging this from my phone as I sit trying to defrost from being at Scott's football match. Brrrrrr.

Today's challenge at Sweet Stampin is Make Your Own Background. I was inspired by Snoopy calendar for last Friday. How do you tell a pumpkin that Halloween is over for another year..... I've made the backing by adding lots of one of Vera Lane's Jack O'Lantern images

Floating By


Hello.

You can tell it's got to that time of year where I've discovered that there are millions of unshared cards and I'm tidying up can't you?!

These two are from work birthday cards in January and February.  Thought I'd try a floating card for a change.  I followed a blog tutorial, but it's so long ago, I can't remember where I got it!

My creature is quite small - unless you also count Frankenstein's monster as being a creature in which case I think we're good! 

This is an image I bought recently when Craftin' Desert Divas were closing.  Wasn't really very sure what to with it but now I've done this one I've had another idea *rolls eyes*

Tea. And Cake.

Hello.

Tea and cake, what could be better!

This is the birthday card I made for Cass at the end of August. And we always have tea and cake at the Crafty Cabin!

I've used this fab Vera Lane Tea Girl image which I've combined with a row of cupcakes!  This was a variation of a card I'd made a couple of weeks before for a friend who had asked me to make a card for her friend's new house! The brief for that was quirky, purple hair.... 

I added the words and cake to the sentiment and it's only if you look real close you can see it's not the same font.

I've combined one of the Besties stamps for this one and given her a mustard coloured hat which was how the recipient looked in one of the photos I was sent! I think if I was doing this again though I'd use the VLS Tall Town set of images rather than the Tiddly Inks town but I do like how it looks.
