Oldie But a Goodie at Catch the Bug

Oldies But Goodies!


Hi, it's 'Oldie but a Goodie Thursday at Catch the Bug, time to feature some of Bugaboo's earlier images, I made this quick card showcasing this little cutie, Girl Side Peeker she so remind me of my sister when she was a little girl. I'm sending it to her to cheer her up, her rheumatoid arthritis is playing her up at the moment, she's in a lot of pain and can barely hobble around the house. She's waiting to have some kind of nuclear injection in her knees which will hopefully ease the pain and improve her mobility, I'm hoping the appointment comes through quickly. 
Thanks for visiting, hope you have a good day.

June challenge at Sweet Stampin' Christmas


Good morning, it's time for our June Challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'... that means we're halfway through the year...already, I think someone must have stolen a large chunk of it!
This month I made a circular card (it does stand up, I cut a small piece off the bottom inside the card to give a straight edge to balance on). The stamp is one of a set from C.C. Designs, Snowman Kids, coloured with copics and fussy cut to stand inside the snowflake die cut, which I cut from glitter card. I added a bow, stamped sentiment tag and some little bells.
If you want to get ahead with your Christmas makes, this would be a great time to join us! There's more inspiration to be seen over on the Challenge Blog, so why not hop over and take a look!

I'll be back in a bit with another card!

Shhh! It's a secret!


Good afternoon, a quick post from me to share the card I made to enter the current challenge at Aurora Wings - Joyous occasions. I made a birthday card featuring the sweet Primrose Elf, which I've cropped slightly. Colouring medium is copics, papers are 'Chalkboard' (Craftwork Cards), very old flowers from stash, sentiment banners hand cut and hand written.
Thanks for visiting, have a lovely evening.

A most splendid birthday!


Good morning and happy weekend, our challenge theme  this week at Sweet Stampin' is 'Father's Day'. I'm sharing the card I made for my husband's birthday ...his birthday is in June as is Father's Day...he LOVES June.  our son and daughter do not!!!
I used a fabulous set of stamps from Hobby Art to make my card, hubby is a keen cyclist so these stamps really appealed to me! I stamped the focal image and coloured with copics, stamped it again and cut out the sentiment banners, attached them over the originals using Pinflair glue to add a bit of dimension. I stamped the bottle 3 times , coloured with copics and cut those out too. The pocket watch is die cut and I added a couple of wooden cogs. The gorgeous steampunk background papers are 'Alchemy' by Kanban...I've hoarded these for quite a few years! His birthday was yesterday and he loved the card!
My teamies have made some fabulous masculine cards to inspire you this week, why not hop over here and take a look .
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend

Oops!


OOps! Should have scheduled this post before I went on holiday...but didn't! I made this card using the beautiful Butterfly Flower Corner which is this week's new release at Bugaboo.
Check out the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog to see what the DT have made with this beautiful Flower Butterfly Corner.
I decided to keep my card very CAS as the image stands alone, all I added was a stamped sentiment.
Thanks for visiting, have a beautiful day (even if it isn't your birthday)
Hopefully, I'll have time later to visit and catch up on what I missed whilst enjoying myself in lovely sunny Dorset!
