That's Catitude For You

Hello.

This card was originally supposed to be for Sweet Stampin' for the paper piecing challenge but I ended up using something else!  Thought I should probably share it now otherwise it'll just lie in the folder.  And that's not the catitude to have is it?

How Could You Forget?

Hello.

There are times when you just forget a birthday.  This year for example there has been no need for a diary.  We haven't actually gone anywhere!

I've combined a LotV boy image with a Vera Lane image so that it looks like he's carrying a box.  Maybe that's why he's late, the box was too heavy.

What a Balloon

Hello.

I saw the challenge over at Fezziwigs for interactive cards and decided I'd have a go.  I'm not sure what I had planned, but I know this didn't turn out like I planned! I think I'm happy with it though.

What's French for Deja Vu?

Hello!

I am laughing as I decided I'd share cards in a rota - one from the start of the folder and then one from the end.  So when I came to write this post I realised that it's using the same image as yesterday.... what did I tell you about James and his big sign?!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

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

This time our theme is Pets. Again, I've got two cards this week - this is the result of having a dedicated crafty space!

This is the first one I made for our lovely Abi's birthday.  I found a fab font so I could spell the word Genius...

At the last minute I decided that as nearly all the Sweeties had cats on their cards that I'd do another pet too.  I struggled for a wee while and thought I was being ridiculous but then I remembered this lemonade stand stamp and my Snoopy stamp......

Not Your Wedding

Hello.

I shared some lockdown birthday cards I'd made, but this one is for a wedding that unfortunately didn't take place.  I used the idea from one of the birthday cards I had created.

Good Friends, Good Books

Hello.

This is the result of a wee play recently.  I say recently but I'm not actually sure when I made it! 

I've combined some Vera Lane Studio images to create a wee scene and then I noticed that one of the flowers from Tracy Evans' Happiness and Nature set looked like it might do as a lampshade....

One Hump or Two

Hello.

Thought it was appropriate to share this on a Wednesday as it's hump day.....

A card for a wee girl daft about all things Egyptian.  I've used the Paper Shelter Cleo image and paper and Krista Smith had this fab camel in her animals set so I had to pair the two!

Be Your Elf

Hello.

Coming to you today from my new crafty space! We decorated the dining room recently which was where my craft stuff had lived and when it was all done up I decided I didn't really want it all in there any more so it moved through to the bedroom and this weekend I had some IKEA furniture delivered so I now have storage and a desk right at the window and it is fab! 

I decided to celebrate by making a Christmas card.... well, actually this had been in my mind since I saw the challenge at Fezziwig's Festive Frolics was Santa's Helpers and I thought it had been a while since this wee elf had seen some ink.

Going Round in Circles

Hello.

Is it just me? Do you do that too? I find it hard to finish one task before starting another and then I'm just going round in circles.

Today's card is from earlier in the year.  It was a die I bought from a friend and thought I'd use it on a fairly simple birthday card.




I'll come back and fill the details in later ;)

No. You're Weird.

Hello.

A nice wee dragon this morning.  I found the card when I was clearing out some stuff in preparation for my new storage and desk which is going to provide me with a much needed craft space.  Can't wait to be up and running again soon.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

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

This time our theme is Anything But a Birthday.  I've got two cards this week.  One is slightly stretching the theme..... 

Made this one for a friend but it was late so I decided to make it not a birthday card.... This is actually the card that inspired me to make the other doodle card for SS a couple of weeks ago using the Vera Lane digi stamps!

This next card is the anniversary card I made for Andy.  It was our 20th wedding anniversary on Wednesday so I thought it would be good to mark it with some numbers.  He's not convinced about the 2 amazing children bit though....

Flower Arranging Mice



Hello.

A much nicer more calming card today in soft spring like colours..... thought I'd better share it before winter sets in, or I could have left it till next spring.....

I've used one of the LOTV Simply print sheets for this and added a LOTV sentiment (and a wee bit of my own as this was obviously late).
