What Time Is It?

Morning.

I'm so ashamed that this little card has been languishing around so long that I've actually made another birthday card for the recipient since then! Oops.  This was an order and I think, it's the first, and only time I've used this lovely Simply Betty image. I really need to use her again cos she's fab.

Halfway through the week. Already?! I know, scary isn't it.

I Wanna Be A Superhero

Morning.

Writing the blog post title brought back memories of holidays when the boys were younger at Scarborough where the DJ used to play a song called I Wanna Be A Superhero all the time. Every. Night. 

Today's card features a small superhero... well, ish. Although according to Mr Incredible superheroes shouldn't wear capes so maybe he's not an actual SH.  

I made this card for a friend's wee boy who's birthday it was last weekend.  I used the MFT Superhero stamp and die and I've paper pieced all of his clothes. Such a fun colourful card to do.

After All This Time? Always.

Morning.

Isn't it cold?! Still, I'd rather have the cold than the pouring rain.

So today's card - which I put on last week as the card for today now takes on a different significance given the horrible week it's been. First of all David Bowie and then Alan Rickman, both particular favourites of mine, it's been a particularly sad week.

After the Harry Potter wedding card I was asked to make a birthday card, but this time with just Hermione and in a similar style to the wedding card. It's kind of the same but different.

A Hug of Bears

Morning.

I'm not sure if that is the collective name for bears. It should be though.

Continuing my clear out this is a card made almost a year ago when I went to a friend's for a crafty weekend. We each took a project for the others to do and the materials to do. This was one from one of the girls. A swing card maybe? Can't remember the technical term.




 I can't really remember any of the important details so I'll leave you for now!!

Some news for you this morning, I was asked to join the DT over at Fab N Funky Challenges so today is my first challenge with them.

This time our theme is

For A Child

We're sponsored this week by Inky Impressions and to break me in gently I was given this fab image to work with. This is Goalie Christopher.

I've coloured him up in the colours of the Hibs goalie. Now, I could keep him for Scott's birthday but that would be way way to organised as his birthday isn't till June!

Carpenter Joe

Morning.

How are we doing this morning? 

Today's card is one of the cards I've done for work. I've used a Tiddly Inks image called Carpenter Joe for this - which is appropriate for work as there are a lot of joiners! I've paper pieced the plank of wood and have die cut Happy Birthday using the same paper.

Morning.

Goodness me, wasn't that a quick weekend.

Today's card is a birthday card I made for my friend's daughter at the end of November. I've used Blossom Loves Balloons - I ended up using this because I wanted to use my balloon dies! I've stamped her and made sure when I die cut the balloon that Blossom's balloons were sticking out.
