Fab N Funky Challenge

Morning.

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

This time our theme is

Anything Goes

First Day

Hello.

Well that's it, the silence is golden. The children are back at school. Not that they're that noisy tbh but there is a certain silence descends when they go to school for the day, it's a pity I have to go to work and I can't make the most of the quiet...

This is the card I made for Scott starting S1. I've used a Polkadoodles image and kept the card fairly simple. I've simply used the school colours to back it.

Last Day

of the summer holidays today.

This time tomorrow we'll have two children at high school! 

Where does the time go.... so it seemed appropriate to share a couple of baby boy cards as it doesn't seem like any time since they were babies - and here they are at the start of S5 and S1.

Clever Clogs

Good morning.

So we're almost at the end of the school holidays, only today and tomorrow to go and they're back to school.

Tuesday was a big day in our house as it was results day.  Poor Craig had to wait until the postman arrived with the precious envelope just before 2pm to find out how he'd done in his National 5's.

He got.....

5 A's
2 C's

So proud!! 

So here's the card I made for him.

Packing A Punch

Morning

Happy Thursday. Nearly the end of another week. Nearly the end of the summer holidays. I'd say nearly the end of the summer but I think that was a few months ago now.

Today's card is one I made for one of the guys at work - wonder if you can guess one of his hobbies from the card.....

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas At Sweet Stampin'

As always it's Anything Christmas Goes

I've used one of the new Christmas Lili of the Valley images - Christmouse Pudding and kept it fairly simple.  I'm not sure this is really the sentiment for the card but I couldn't find one in my stash I liked better! Typical eh?

Silver Wedding

Morning.

Today's card is a card for Cass (of Crafty Cabin fame) and her husband who celebrated their silver wedding when we were away on holiday so I had to wait until we came back to deliver it. I went simple with white and silver.

More Bears....

Morning.

Remember the other day I shared the PB bears and said they'd come to my rescue again... this is the card I had planned to be making when I remembered about the CASS DT card!

This is a card I made for my friend's daughter and it's the one we gave her. I've even given one of the bears a JoJo Bow. Have you seen these things? They're the size of small planets!! So glad I have boys!!!

Fore!

Hello.

Goodness I've just looked at the time!  Bit of a late one this evening.

Today's card is one I was asked to make a few weeks ago.  

I've used the Just Inklined Golf Bag for a golf themed card - perhaps I should have left sharing this one until the Open starts at the end of the week... never mind.

As always it's Anything Christmas Goes

The PB Bears came to my rescue (as they so often do!)

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, I'm back from my holidays in Sunny Menorca - who switched the heating off? Got to be honest, I'm missing the sun and the cocktails! 

So, back to business - it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. 

This week our theme is

Christmas in July

I've gone for James the Bear - you can't really go wrong with James! Kept it simple though and just gone for the same shades.

Better Late Than Never

Morning

A wee last post before we go away on our hols. We'll be up really really early tomorrow morning so I think a post will be the last thing on my mind.

These are a couple of belated cards to share today both work ones (although to be fair, I wasn't actually asked for one of them until after the birthday but it seemed to good an opportunity to miss to make a funny belated card)

This week our theme is

Stars and Stripes

You need to look carefully to see the stripes, but they are there!

This was a card I made for the wee girl next door. I bought this LOTV fairy set when they had a sale on recently and thought this one would be perfect for teaming with the Happy Birthday border punch I found when I was tidying up!

Shhhhhhh

Morning.

I'm not here. I'm packing......

OK, I am here, and I am chilling with a cup of tea and the Gilmore girls even though there's still loads to do before we go away on Monday.

I've used a Stamping Bella for today's card which was one for someone to give her friend for her birthday.

Socks!

Morning.

Something a little different today - well, different in that it isn't a card.

This is a frame I made for Craig a wee while ago (and to my shame, it's still not hung in his room). He'd seen one just like this when we went to ComicCon and he asked if I could make him one so I went on a Google search for Dobby colouring pages!

Perhaps today is the day. I'm trying to tidy the house, while packing for our holidays (we're away Monday) so I might just find a wee space to hang this in his room!
