Time for a Brew?

Hello.

Today's card for Whimsy uses a Meljen's image - Cinnamon Harvest Mug.  I'm not sure about Cinnamon/Pumpkin etc type coffee but I liked the image!  This is a holiday weekend here in Glasgow but we have builders coming round this morning, so I can see us camping out in Costa/Starbucks/Tim Hortons for the day!

Pumpkin Pie

Hello.

Today's card for Whimsy  features a lovely Crissy Armstrong image - A Girl and Her Pumpkin.  I thought I'd try and make it look like a photo as I've seen so many photos on social media of folk collecting their pumpkins!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.
 
Time for a new challenge Sweet Stampin' and our theme this time is Favourite Colour Combination.  What a struggle this was, couldn't decide on my favourite colours, couldn't decide on an image to use and then I saw a Tracey Hey reel on Instagram using these colours and I thought about the Stampin Up paper Elegant Soiree which I used to love and decided to go with that.

Will Your Anchor Hold?

I wasn't sure I was going to share this card I made using the anchor from Some Odd Girl's Mr Octopus Whimsy  set.  When I first saw it, it reminded me of the Boys' Brigade hymn Will Your Anchor Hold and as I'm an ex Boys' Brigade officer I decided to make a wee card to remind me. I saw a friend shared the words of the chorus earlier and so I decided I would come and share this today.

Gnome. I Don't Know What Day of the Week it is Either

Hello.

Today I've got a birthday card I made for a friend using the Vera Lane Studio Girl Gnomes set.  Wasn't going to buy them until I had a moment of inspiration when I had been struggling to make her card!

The Last of The Summer Wine (well, watermelon)

Hello.

So we're almost at the end of August and before my Whimsy  cards move to Autumn/Halloween and Christmas (shhhh) I thought I;d share one last summer card.  I decided to try and give Millie a watermelon base with a bite taken out of it, I had to use scissors as the cardboard didn't taste very nice!

Beach Day Hugs

Hello.

It's very much a BOGOF today with my cards Whimsy  I made the first card using Teddy and had some paper left over so thought I would make another wee card with the left overs (also the card with Teddy shows you that you don't need to use Chirstmas sentiments at Christmas!)

A Giraffe and His Cake

Hello.

Just a wee birthday card today using Dustin Pike's Whimsy  Giraffe Cupcake image.  I decided to turn him round and just have him peeking in the side of the card and the sentiment that comes with the image was just perfect to do in a bigger size.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.
 
Time for a new challenge Sweet Stampin' and our theme this time is Firsts. I made the 1st birthday card but one of the Sweeties had also done a 1st birthday boy card so I decided to do a Baby's 1st Christmas.  When I went to watermark the card I discovered a card I made for a friend leaving work for his first day in a new job so I'm sharing that too (his version wasn't censored!)

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Hello.
 
Time for a new challenge Sweet Stampin' and our theme this time is Doodling. 

I should explain, this came about as a result of a background I wasn't happy with, threw to one side and did something else, then had a look at it again and decided to do something with it, then.... whilst looking in my drawer of things I've made I decided I'd pull out all my Tracey Hey stuff that was just lying in there (that was the same shape) and make a book... so it's a book of envelopes, not all of the pages have doodling, but there is doodling in there I promise. 

Oh and I might start book #2 now!




















I wrote a list of all the sets I used but I can't find it and at the moment I'm suffering from covid so will come back and confirm.
