Celebrate!

Hello.

Goodness, what has happened to the evening? I was full of plans but somehow the night has disappeared.

Today's card was one I made as an order for a 70th birthday. I struggled to think of what I was going to do and then I remembered I had this Saturated Canary image, perfect for a celebratory occasion.

Monster Birthday

Hello.

Just a quick post tonight as I wanted to share this card as I'm starting to fall behind in the old sharing department and I'll end up blogging cards that are months old just after Christmas....

This is a card for a friend at work who's birthday it is today. He loves cake! And biscuits and sweets. 


Stamps 
Cake Monster - Pollycraft

Colouring Medium
Copics

Just before I go, it seemed like an appropriate point to share some birthday photos - Donny's wife made my birthday cake. Isn't it awesome?! I've also sneaked in a photo of the four of us. Sorry about that ;)

18th Birthday Beers

Morning all.

Hope you're well. 

Today I'm sharing a card I made for one of the guys at work. Guess how old he was ;) I used this fab Mayzy Art image which I got just before Mayzy closed her shop. I kept the design fairly simple and not too fussy - I printed the barmaid a bit bigger than I would normally as I only wanted to use the top half of her!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

You're not going to believe this but this is a Team Abi week and I'm joining in.... because this week's theme is....

I know... right. So, here's the warning. Look away now. I'm not keen but I decided to challenge myself a few weeks ago when I decided I couldn't do girly cards. And I was right. If it hadn't been for this week's theme, little Odette may never have seen the light of day.

Our sponsors this week are Wild Orchid Crafts.

A Lady In Waiting

Hello.

How's your week been? 

We just moved offices last Friday so this week has been all about settling in to our new place and today was all about one of the girls stopping for maternity leave! She only has two weeks to go so hoping we don't have long to wait for news.

This is the card I made for her using the Saturated Canary Overdue image.

Morning.

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

Things With Wings




We're sponsored this week by Lacey Sunshine.

Now unfortunately I have completely missed a week and it was only when I went to check something I realised I hadn't made my DT card. However, all is not lost, as I had a card I hadn't shared lurking.

This is a card I made for a girl at work because we missed her birthday and then she went on holiday for a few weeks so was a bit late getting to her!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

This week our theme is

Tags - make or use one

We're playing along just for fun this week.

I've made a tag, which could double as a bookmark! In fact, I might use it as my bookmark as I'm reading an actual book at the moment instead of my Kindle.

I had a brilliant idea for this challenge. Unfortunately I told myself that lie that I would remember what it was.... and guess what?! Yeah, I can't remember what it was. Oh well, never mind. You can't go wrong with a Gorjuss Girl!

Seriously? How Long Does It Take To Write a Blog Post?

I think I started this on Friday... or perhaps even Thursday!!

However, we were slightly busy with party goings on at the weekend and then I was a bit* under the weather on Sunday after the party.

*understatement, only just recovering now.

So today's/last week's card is one which I made for a party Scott was going to. And you'll notice that the photo is the wrong way round and I was going to change it but never got round to. Then Scott wrote the card with the sentiment along the bottom instead of at the side! Pfft. The monkey wasn't supposed to be on his side!!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

This week our theme is

Add A Number 

This is in honour of my "29th" birthday tomorrow *coughs* 

My card was on order from a friend for her son to give his Gran who's birthday it was last weekend. 

I was told she liked baking so I've gone for a Pretty Grafix Baking Boys image and teamed him with the Digi Stamp Boutique Celebration Cake. I can't remember where the Recipe of a Birthday stamp is from. It might be Dreamees. When I was putting the card together I thought some stray "chocolate icing" would be good so I used Visible Image Ink Spots stamps to look like dropped icing.

Our sponsors this week are Stix 2.

Celebration Cake - Digi Stamp Boutique

Hello.

Here is my weather forecast for the next two weeks.... rain. The schools stopped for their 2 weeks holiday today so you can guarantee that's the rain on until the 18th April!
