Judo who's birthday it is ? ...

Sorry I know it's a really bad pun ! 1 card 3 challenges.
1. Colour create - Colour combo of Kraft, Blue, White and the option of texture.
2. Friday Sketches - This great sketch.
3. Stampavie and more - A boys birthday card.
The image is a Mo Manning one of fav's at the minute. The card is SU and scrap card off the back of a pad. I've added texture by embossing and by using grossgrain ribbon with binding tape.
The sentiment is hand written.

Can't Fink ....

of a title. Any suggestions ? I've made this not so scary dino for 2 challenges.
1. Basic Grey - Animals.
2. Stamp with Fun - This fantastic sketch by Saphira.
I've used BG Ambrosia paper and put it thru my CB and then inked it. The buttons have got Hang 10 fibres thru them.
the image is Whipper snapper I think and the card is papermill. My sentiment is from a little £1.49 set.

I made it to my craft room ...

And made this card for 4 challenges and my friends birthday. The pic isn't great so my apologies.
The 1st one is Cupcake Crafts where the challenge is to go "Girly Girly". Number 2 is over at A spoonful of sugar to follow their recipe of "3 papers, 1 ribbon, 3 flowers and 3 buttons". Next it was a dash across to The Pink Elephant and "Birthdays", then I just made it over Simon Says to gather a bit of "Shabby Chic".
The image is a Gorjuss girly, the papers, card and sentiments are SU. I hand punched the flowers and inked the edges. The gems, ribbon and buttons are all from my stash.

Thanks for dropping by, feel free to comment. Please call again soon visitors are always welcome.

Morning ...

fellow bloggers. I'm hoping to get some serious crafting done over the weekend as I'm back to work on Sunday. BOO HOO ! (She whispered as her boss looks at her blog sometimes).

Well it's decided to rain here today and its wet and very cold. Just what I need when I'm off into town to do some errands. Never mind I'l cheer myself up with a card magazine.

Thanks for sticking with me, I've had some lovely comments and mails. THANK YOU !

Well what a day ...

I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers to make this Mario card for DS's 6 th birthday.
The image is off tinternet and everything else is from my stash and from my bit box, which I'm trying to work my way thru'.
I haven't done anyway near as much as I'd like cos we had a powercut and it blew my monitor when it came back on. You can imagine what colour the air was around here.
Fortunately we had a spare one which hubby sorted out when he got home.
Ta for taking a look and hope you'l call again soon.

Oooooppps !

What a very naughty blogger am I. I promised myself I'd be more attentive to my blogland friends, and here I am not posted since the 4th of Jan.

My apologies, but in my defence I've been extremely productive doing my brothers Wedding stationary. It's getting there and I'l share some picci's later.

Today is challenge day for me, so be prepared for a few posts later LOL !
It's the school run and then nose to the grindstone, well craftroom. I can't wait !

Well thats me for now.

Get your sunglasses out ...

for this card I've done to cover the challenge over at Just Magnolia, which is this fantastic sketch. And, Colour Create where it's the colour combo of Lemon and Lime with the option of Spring/Summer flowers.
All bases covered me thinks and I've rotated the sketch to accomodate my gorjus Tilda.
This card is made totally with bits n bobs from my card/paper bit box, and from my stash. The flutterby's are punched using my Chrissie pressie from DS.
Ta for taking the time to call by and have a look, please feel free to leave a comment. Pop back anytime, visitors are always welcome.

My favourite 5 cards ....

That was so difficult choosing just 5 of my favs as I've got so many. I'm off now to do some crafting WOOHOO ! Well it's got to be better that watching Ben 10 for the 4th time today LOL. And hubby has taken himself off to bed as he's not too well, and not self inflicted either. Poor soul.
Back in a while. T T F N .
