Happy Father's Day...


 Morning folks!

I have been kind of quiet for a bit, been so busy with work and my dad and lost my mojo a bit...was just getting worn down with everything however things are settling at work and I have newbie joining the team on Monday so things will be less hectic....and I am getting back on track.

I am looking forward to my first event in over 2 years and I am so looking forward to it....my 5th and last time of the Eagles at Murrayfield.....yay!

Anyway it's time for another challenge over on the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog.

This time we want to see your masculine cards or Father's Day cards.

I always struggle with male cards so I had a look through my stash and found this fab stamp from Stampin Up...it doesn't need much colouring so perfect.  I also die cut the words and layered them up so they stood out and then added a couple of gems.

Pop over to the Sweet Stampin Challenge blog to check out what my teamies have made.

Hope you likey!

Sending Happy Thoughts...

 


Morning folks,

Its time for the mid month post over on the Stamping Sensations Challenge Blog.

This months sponsor is Oakwood Archer who are giving away this lovely prize...


Doodles in Bloom which is stamps, dies and a stencil.

I have made my card using Altenew Beautiful Day...one of my many favourite stamp sets.  I stamped each of the layers with ink to give a bit of depth, then die cut the flowers and leaves and layered them all together.  I left one of the images uncoloured as I thought it looked a bit funky.  I added some splodges and sequins...oh and the sentiment.

Pop over to the Stamping Sensations Challenge Blog for more inspiration.

I'm off to work now...with yummy cheesecake since it's my birthday...


challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - layer it up
Crafty Calendar - anything goes

Friend...


Morning folks,

I am here today with my card I made for Allsorts Challenge....yes I have been asked by the lovely Brenda to take a guest spot, today being one of them.

The theme is to use your favourite stamps or dies...now I do have many favourite stamps so it was a hard decision on which to use but eventually I decided on this little leaf stamp from Simon Says Stamp - Be kind. I do love it, it's so simple to colour.  Today I stamped and coloured with watercolours, I did use blue and green and then tried marbling them a bit and I also added in a bit of silver watercolour...its hard to see that in the photo.  I added some shading around the leaves and some splodges and sequins.  Oh I saw a card that had a wee paper strip which I thought was quite funky so I added the stripey paper to finish off.

Sending some happy rainbows...


Morning folks,

My post is scheduled so hopefully it posts correctly.  I'm away for a wee glamping holiday this weekend, hope it doesn't rain....my card is kind of appropriate if it does ha ha!

It's time for a new challenge over on the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog and the theme this fortnight is:

"rainy days and rainbows"

I do love a wee rainbow stamp.  I have used some stamps from concord & 9th with umbrella and rainbows...they are from different s but I like that you can mix and match.
