got sealed in that envelope !! it would totally have freaked me out lol!!

Today I must crack on with the never ending chores to finish and this stairs and landing need finishing just not managed to climb any ladders for last few days,phone ringing appointments been altered and changed then cancelled when you have been sat waiting annoying becuase uh it time out of my life with other things I could have done.

Happy Saturday

The first card is a birthday card for my Niece and 2BW1 stone again,this is using Hanglar& stanglar stamp and colouring with crayons I enjoyed doing it
The second is from the Cyber crop from last week Vicki`s challenge,you know them magnets we pick up from places to stick on your fridge ,then we purge and throw them away,well the challenge was to alter one,this was fun and Vicki always comes up with some get ideas
I used the crafty secrets pad and the Granny image was from the new Craft secrets journalling booklet,but blow the journalling could not help but use this image reminds me so much of my childhood and days spent baking and icing and eating that horrible mix from the spoon[liked it at the time!] Just think though with all the eggs raw in that mix and we spooned it into our little mouths oh.......... mind you we never hailed much

Happy birthday TJ

Well I really should have done this sooner,Happy 5th Birthday Darling Son
This card was made using cherryarte paper and a few bits and bobs from my stash
Vicki`s challenege "throw me a curve" worked so well I could kill to birds with one stone the challenge and the birthday card for my son,it is loud and bright[for me anyway lol!] He liked it though. I cannot believe how fast the years have gone geez............

Men Cards

The men Cards made over last day one is from my DS for his grandad that is the decoupage with the grandad sat in the chair. My birthday Card for my father is the shirt one,I was so un sure about the colour of this I used chatterbox papers and the lid was some plastic I had saved knowing one day it would come in from something I bought!! The ace of hearts card is ,the father`s day card ,this was some HOTP papers I had begging to be used up and the Cards I printed on some cardstock leather finish using the Prima Rue88 digital paper and I inked the edges and layered up on double sided tabs to give it a bit of depth....... So some card idea to share...........
Another miserable Day plenty of rain so humid,But I have plenty to do in the chore field,but wanting to re arrange some scrap stuff along the way and also wanting to play..........
until next time,enjoy your day...............don`t forget double click to enlarge for a better view of the pictures
