Coloured Stamp!

Hello again,
Have managed yet another card this morning for these challenges

Outlawz Tuesdays colour challenge
Crafts Galore Encore Challenge - Stamp image

As you can see, I've made this quite simply.
I've used Spectrum Noir Markers to colour the cutest wheelbarrow of flowers stamped image!

Good morning peeps!
Another beautiful day! ~Too cold to sit out in the sunshine though, which is just as well as I only realised yesterday that I no longer have any garden chairs! You know the ones I mean - green, plastic, tacky?
Yep, those! Not that I'm bothered just yet but I do know my daughter has 2 in her garden and the other 2 (there were 4 originally) have been damaged over the winter in the winds, so I might have to go on a rescue mission and 'steal' em back from her!
Or I could just go out and buy 4 more!!!! I'll wait for 'him who works' to come home and we can go and buy some together - Aaaaaah, I hear you it's not a romantic thing to do. I don't drive and I'm not carrying chairs home either!
He does have his uses, bless!!!
On to todays mission - well, I made a card last night for a challenge at Outlawz challenges - coffee & friends

Sunny Tuesday Morning!

Hi all.
Well, I didn't quite get around to posting anything else on here on Sunday or even yesterday (monday!).
So I am going to make up for it today by sharing 2 cards with you which I have made to enter a couple of challenges.
This first one I am entering into the challenge at Outlawz Challenges - Alcohol markers challenge
as I used my fave Spectrum Noir markers for the yellows and outling the bee and wording in black.
I think this little bumble bee is uber cute! I bought the image from Pink Petticoat as there are some really cute images for sale (i've bought quite a few!!!!)

Sweet Bee!

My second card is fun and funky! I subscribe to a site called Paperprintables where I found this fab scooter to print out.
I coloured this with Spectrum Noir and layered it onto generic paper and card.
I'm entering this one into the challenge again at Outlawz Challenges - CAS Sunday
I hope it fits the criteria - there is alot of 'white' space and minimal embellishments.

Sunday x

Good morning everyone. :)
I hope you are all well and feeling great on this rather overcast sunday morning.
We had a fab time with our second Christmas day yesterday. The restaurant San Marco really does deserve a link in this blog! It was brilliant!!!
It is the second time I've eaten there and both occasions have been marvellous. Can not fault them at all. The food was delicious,served promptly and the staff are so attentive. Wonderful.
After indulging my very naughty appetite (The Diet God will be aiming his sword of fury right at me right now!) we left and headed back to my daughters house for Christmas drinks, games and nibbles later on.
Pass the parcel went down well!!!!
It was so much fun but we didn't quite get around to playing charades as we all talked so much that time slipped happily by and all of a sudden, it was time for bed! Some of our party needed their bed more than others and they are paying for it this morning!!!! Hahahahaha x
I must admit, I feel absolutely drained - rich food and extremely potent cocktails do take their toll on my already knackered body and even though i wasn't at all drunk I wish I had been then I'd have something to blame this tiredness on!!!
Never mind!
I'm off to make a coffee so I will pop by and write a few more pithy offerings later.

Thank you!

Friday at last eh?

Hi everyone!

Hope you all have stuff planned this weekend - for a change, I do!
As you may remember my mentioning it in another post, we are having Christmas again tomorrow!
So looking forward to it!  Expecially the lunch at San Marco - simply gorgeous food!
I've baked the cake, iced and decorated it, made mince pies (half already eaten) and wrapped a pass the parcel up for a party game!!!
Yes, we will also be playing charades!
Christmas isn't Christmas without charades and plenty of booze to make you think you're the best actor on earth and deserve all the Oscars!!!

So, for today, here is my card for the challenge over at CAS- Colours and Sketches #64

Good morning all,
Today has been much quieter than yesterday - thank goodness! Don't think I could cope with another one like that for a while!
I sat down this morning to make another CAS card.
This time it is for the challenge at Outlawz challenges - Ladybugs which I follow on my blog.

Here it is -
