Left On The Shelf

Well the toys are on the shelf...

I love this wee stamp, it's so cute! This is a card I was asked to do for someone leaving to have a baby. I wasn't sure if I should put a baby on it - even though they knew the sex of the baby it just didn't feel right so I went for this instead.

This week our theme is

Things That Go Round

I've gone for records. They go round.... 

I love this new LOTV image and I decided I'd look for a jukebox colouring page so I've teamed her with that. Cut out a few record shapes using a Spellbinders die and there you have it.

FabNFunky Challenge

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

This time our theme is

Create a Background/Use a Background Stamp.

We're sponsored by Little Miss Muffet for this challenge who very kindly gave the DT some images to play with.

I had a LMMS image I bought ages ago, for no other reason than I loved it but actually had no reason to buy, this challenge however, was the perfect opportunity to break out Chester :) 

The card has now been claimed by Scott who loves monkeys and wants it in a frame!

Peeking James

Hello.

What could be better than a James the Bear card? A card with 4 James' on it?! This is a card I made last year for a wee girl in Scott's class. I suspect she's had another birthday since!

Wedding Blues

Morning.

Did you have a good weekend? Was it sunny? We had rain all day Saturday and yesterday the sun came out again and it was lovely!

On to today's makes. This is a card and gift I made for a wedding reception we went to recently. The invite had touches of blue so that's what I went with.

This is the frame I made using the SNC. I was quite pleased with it - although not particularly pleased I couldn't get a decent photo!

I Solemnly Swear......

Morning!

Did you watch the Eurovision last night? It's always a strange affair but I think I preferred it when they sang in their own language and I had no clue what was going on!

On to today's cards. A couple of Harry Potter cards I made, one fairly recently and the other one back in February.

I used my SNC for this one and a Harry Potter cut file and I downloaded a Mauraders Map which I went over with some Vintage Photo DI.



This next one I used a colouring page of the Slytherin crest. I was originally going to do a card with just the crest but in the end decided to make it look like robes!

Mmmm.Cookies

Morning!

Do you like cookies? 

This is a card for one of the guys at work who really likes cookies.... I used a free SNC file to make the Cookie Monster's head and used a chocolate chip cookie stamp to give a background, and a sneaky extra cookie just for the Cookie Monster.

A Pack of Cards

Morning.

Not so much a pack, but 4. These are some of the birthday cards I've done for the site guys at work. 

I tend to just do something general unless I really know the recipient! Balloons and beer seem to feature a lot though!

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

This week our theme is

Cats and Dogs

I went for a dog for this challenge, but I've just had another thought of how I could have approached this challenge!! Bit late now though eh?

I love this card - this image is adorable. And what better thing than to immerse yourself in a bowl of raw cake!

Slàinte Mhath

Hello. 

At last it's Friday and it's the weekend and time to chill! I hate these 4 day weeks. They always seem longer than a 5 day one...

This is a card I made ages ago for a friend. I tried to make the mat for the beer look like it was a bottle cap - I cut the shape out on the SNC and then used a circle die to emboss the edge.
