Bit of a disaster!!

Hi all and woohoo its Saturday again so a lazy day for me, well as lazy as it can get with two kids lol This week over at Allsorts the fabulous Brenda has the theme of cream, gold and a hint of red. Great I thought, that'll be another Xmas card for the box, so I got to work yesterday making it, left it to let the stickles dry and went off to make the kids snack. When I came back diaster had struck!!! My little monkey had reached over from his high chair and grabbed it and was gnawing away on a very soggy corner, he had also scrunched it up a few times too so it was beyond help!! I could have sworn he wouldn't have been able to reach it but I think my son may have super human skills I don't know about lol I didn't get a piccie of him with the card in his mouth and his cheeks sparkly with stickles but I got this one of him this morning, he has just mastered pulling up to stand up.....oh dear won't be long til he's!!!

Sadly I didn't have the time to make another as I was being taken out last night for a treat with a good friend. We went to see Ed Byrne, the comedian, he was hilarious and my face was aching afterward from laughing :o) A good night for sure

So I hope you will head over to Allsorts and join in the lovely theme this week, and be sure to blog hop round the rest of the DTs blogs cos they have made some stuning cards.

Spots and Stripes

OK OK who took it? The last week has gone by so fast I am sure someone has stolen it!! How can it be Saturday again already?

Well seeing as it is Saturday again that means Allsorts time :o) This week it is the fabulous Debs turn to set the theme and she wants to see spots and stripes on your work. I made this card for my brother's birthday, the little happy birthday and the top layer with happy birthday were actually a gift tag on one of ian's birthday presents last year!! the spotty layer of paper is a scrap of funky hand paper from the salt and pepper range, buttons are papermania I think :o) The picture doesn't show it too well but the bottom half of the card has embossed stripes using my score board.
Well my idea of getting some challenge card done this week has obviously gone by the wayside, hopefully I will get to do some this week :o)

Bingo Time!!

Saturday again already......where oh where are the weeks going? This week over at Allsorts its Bingo time! I had never see this type of challenge before but its fun lol
This is the bingo card, you have to choose a line either vertical, horizontal or diagonal and use the three items to make your card! Simples as we say in our house!! I chose the line with brads, buttons and punches
Our fabby sponsor this week is Robyns Fetish Digital Stamps and more and they provided us dt girls with papers or images. I chose thie see saw image and made this card for one of my childminding girls who has her 3rd birthday coming up. The paper, buttons and cardstock are SU and I used my punches for the flowers are little swirly thingys. The brad is in the middle of the see saw and it means the seesaw actually moves up and down, I thought little Emily would like that! I promise there are two buttons on the card, they are holding the easel part up, but they blend in a bit too much so hard to see in the piccie.
Hope you'll come join us this week :o)

Ribbon: SU
Pearls: from stash

Ugh another cold and misty day here in Kingussie. It's quite chilly too.

Card for Papertake Weekly's theme of three of a kind as it has 3 pearls :o) It was made for the birth of little Maisie for Nicky's inlaws as this is their first grandchild. Sorry the picture isn't the best, must have had the camera on the wrong setting, ah well you can still see it :o)

Saturday, 9 October 2010 titles and meet Maisie :o)

It's been an exciting week in the Panda household this week. My step son Nicky and his wife LeeAne were expecting their little bundle of joyon 27th September, well the little mite was obviously very comfy and warm and didn't arrive until Wednesday 6th October, so meet little Maisie.
Some of you will remember the complicated family we have here, I have 3 step kids, Sarah 38, Tara 36 and Nicky 26. Being 35 myself I obviously had nothing to do with the girls childhoods lol but I have brought Nicky up since he was 10 years old. So although Ian my hubby has 7 grandchildren, Maisie is really the first one to feel like my own grandchild :o) And what a beautiful girl to have as my first granchchild she is a wee stunner. Here are a couple of wee pics for you .

Both taken yesterday so 2 days old.

So onto my card for this week:

It is my week at Allsorts this week and I have asked you to take inspiration for your card/item from a song title and I can't wait to see all the diufferent songs you like :o)

My card has an image from a baby themed font on the pc, paper is Papermania, brad and pearls from stash, yellow cardstock is SU. I made this card for my daughter in laws sister as it is her first time being an aunty. I also made cards for Nicky's in laws as this is their first grandchild and also one for Nicky's mum, I got a bit carried away lol Sadly the pics I took of the grandparent cards were blurry as I had the wrong setting on so I can't show them. I will be bak in the week with the card I made for Nicky and LeeAnne.
