It's That Bag

Hello.

Yesterday's post had the present I sent to a friend.  Today it's the card.  Now the bag on the card was just a wee joke.  When it was my "29th" birthday party I bought a new bag (not dissimilar to this) and Lorraine kept trying to steal it....

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

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

This week our theme is 

Use Your Scraps

Isn't this a great theme?  Don't you have loads of scraps - I know I do.  and I really did use scraps (you can see her dress has a wee bit of white showing on a sleeve because I didn't have another bit of the spotty paper to use to paper piece her!)  I have since framed this and sent it to my friend as a birthday gift.  Hope she's got it by now.






Thanks for dropping by today. 

Remember to drop by Sweet Stampin' and see what the rest of the Sweeties have been up to! Perhaps you could have a go yourself, don't forget to stamp now ;)

Scooting By

Hello.

Today's card was made for one of the girls at work's son's birthday and he was getting a black scooter and red helmet for his birthday - I found an image of a cycle helmet and printed to cover the party hat this wee LotV boy was originally wearing!

FabNFunky Challenge

Hello again.

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

This time our theme, chosen by the lovely Neva is

Add a Doily

This was one of two cards I made towards the end of the year and although I hadn't actually seen the themes of the last two challenges here at FnF both of my cards fitted! How happy was I?  And you can't really go wrong with James the bear can you?!

Football Is Life

Hello.

Today's card is for yesterday's card recipient's little brother..... His birthday was only a couple of weeks ago.  Look at me getting all up to date..... (NOT)

Quite a simple card as I simply added the image to the digi paper and coloured him in.  I really like this though.

I've Got Your Number

Hello.

I've decided to blog all the cards this week that have numbers on them (I've actually got more than a week's worth of cards so I might get bored of this idea before I finish!

This is one I made for my friend's daughter at the end of November.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

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

This week our theme is 

Journals/Albums/Frames/Keepsakes

I thought I'd try something different for a change.  I've kinda gone for a journal page - if you put recipes in a journal that is.  I think it's a great idea, but I'm not sure I'd ever actually use it - I'm far too messy a cook.

No. You're Weird....

Hello.

I mentioned before that I got some Alpaca Pals stamps for Christmas.  In the week between Christmas and New Year I discovered that I'd made 297 cards during the year..... so I couldn't let that go and had to make another 3 to take my total up to 300! Trouble is that now my friends want me to aim for 350 this year....

This is one of the 3 cards I made to take my total to 300.  I love this one.

Variations on a Theme

Hello.

A few birthday cards I made last year all featuring a football shirt.  I am not keen on either of these teams as we're a Hibernian supporting house!

The first one is my favourite.... but only cos it features Hibs in the cheeky sentiment.  They all feature the same football shirt from Just Inklined.
