Special Day

Good morning everybody.

Welcome to a brand new crafty week!
I hope I have lots of energy to plough into fab creations - one never knows!

I have had a very quiet weekend though. 'He who works' came home with his usual bag of washing and no prezzies for me....I keep asking for them but for some reason I don't get them- he reckons he's working hard and has no time to buy them. Any excuse!!!!!! Bless him!
We did have the birthday tea on saturday for the son-in-law. We went to Tesco for birthday nibbles - £54 later (Hahahahahaha) we came home!
Why does food have to be so darned expensive>? We all would be much better off if we didn't have to eat!

On to the card-making then :

I decided to use my Sizzix tag die and then distress it with Tim Holtz antique linen ink pad and then the Spellbinders label die for the sentiment.
In fact, this card developed over the afternoon! I had in mind a distressed card and ended up stamping, embossing and colouring too!

I'm entering it into the following challenges :-

Scrapology - Theme - Mothers Day/Special Lady
The Stamping Boutique - Theme - Punch/Die-cut
Challenges 4 Everybody - Theme - #38 Anything Goes
Feeling Crafty Challenge - Theme - #25 Dies/Punches
Cardmaking and Papercraft - Theme - Mothers Day

Good evening everyone.

I haven't updated my blog for a few days now - I decided to have a change and organise some photos for scrapbooks that need doing.
Found several online photo processing websites who had great offers on. I managed to buy 145 prints for about £6 including delivery - result!
I'm quite looking forward to doing the scrapbooks - my crafty mojo did take a downward swoop lately and I think that was because I was overdoing it - spending too much time using my brain!!!! (yes, I know that's difficult to believe!) but it's true. It becomes very cerebral (check me out for using a big word...) when you are having to think of several designs a day - poor you, I hear you say. HAhahahahaha, yeah right!

However today, before we held a birthday tea party for......wait for it.......drum roll please.............my son-in-law who was 34 yesterday!...yes, I know......I made a card for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blogspot - Sketch 43.
The bunny in the plant pot is such a cute image from Somebunny to Love which I coloured with good old Spectrum Noir markers and the little flowers I sprinkled with pink glitzy glitter but they don't look as sparkly on the photos.

Busy Bee - That's Me!!!!

Afternoon everyone.

First off, let me tell you I hate those days when everything happens at once; those days when you could have done to stay in bed. The reason why i'm whingeing is because this morning just went belly-up. House phone and mobile ringing in unison, door-bell, visitors.......grrrrr! Every other day this week, nothing will happen - so why does it have to all go off at once? I just cannot cope!

So, I did eventually sit down in my 'sanity' room and make this card to enter into these challenges :

Less is More Wk 159 challenge - Theme - Masculine

Artistic Inspirations - challenge #79 - Theme - Anything Goes/Masculine.

I hope it's suitable for both challenges!
