squeezed in a bit of crafting this afty!

The boy was asleep for a while after lunch so I whipped through to my craft room (I had tidied it this morning lol) and was able to make a couple of cards before he woke :o)

A baby boy card using an image that was gifted to me aggeeees ago and I just found it lol, the paper is Funky hand from Craft the Year Away, ribbon scrap is Crafty Ribbons (who else lol)


Sweet Stampin ~ Anything Goes

Oldie but a Goodie ~ One for the boys

I came accross the Less is More Challenge while commenting on my CAS theme entries this week and thought I would have a wee go as the sketch looked great, the wee birdie stamp in one thats been in the drawer for a long time and I have no idea where it's from, the sentiment was printed straight onto the card :o)


Less is More ~ Sketch

Totally Gorjuss ~ Birds of a feather

Keeping it simple....

......a bit like myself lol Over at Allsorts it is my turn to set the theme and I decided on the Clean and Simple style. If I'm honest I love it when others do it but when I try it myself I have to stop myself adding to it, you know a wee ribbon here, a couple of wee flowers or something and then 30 secs later its no longer CAS lol Today's card is a perfect example...I was trying to add a bit of ribbon to it before I slapped myself and stepped away from the craft room before I ruined it :o)

I've used Funky Hand's Happy Happy Birthday yet again, I am just loving it so much! The card base is printed straight onto the card, the image is precoloured and I have layered the foam and THAT IS IT...............surely it just needs just a wee smidge of something?????


Simon Says ~ Dies to Die For
Truly Scrumptious ~ Clean and Simple

So head over to Allsorts and keep it simple for me :o)

One for the men.....

I decided to challenge myself and use the Just 4 Men collection on the Happy Happy Birthday cd. I always struggle with men's cards, but to be honest when I saw the gorgeous scrummy papers and the digi stamps on the cd it was easy peasy!!

The card was made with a ready coloured digi. The buttons are also from Funky Hand. The wee scraps of ribbon are from Crafty Ribbons, sheer puff dots (who else lol)

Next I used the bunting template to make a DAD banner. The beers and Happy Birthday are both digis from the cd. The beers have been heat embossed with white powder for the froth and the glasses have glossy accents on. The letters are also from the cd......basically the only thing not on the cd is the flowers and ribbon and pearls lol The ribbon is again from Crafty Ribbons :o)


Fab n Funky ~ A Hard theme (hard for you to make)

Crafty Ribbons ~ Anything Goes

Back tomorrow with my theme for Allsorts :o)

Funky Hand makes

The fabby dabby Happy Happy Birthday cd is well and truly on sale!! woohoo!! Anice was on Create and Craft twice last Thursday and sold lots and lots :o) I just realised I haven't shown my makes for the new cd so thought I would show them over the next couple of days

First up I used the cake box template with different papers and made this cake :o) When I made the first box I could just imagine using them as party boxes for Lily's next birthday party.

Each box is from a different paper and each has a ribbon "filling" and some candles and flowers on top.


Daring Cardmakers ~ How many candles? How perfect was that lol

Die Cut Dreams ~ Flower Power (at least 5 flowers)

Naughty Panda again!

Tut tut late again............

Got some visitors staying for the weekend so I am all over the place lol I am sure you know how it is :o)

Anyway this week at Allsorts it is Nicola's first turn to host the challenge and she has set "recycling/altering" as her theme. I saved this box from a Christmas gift I received knowing it would make a fabulous alterable item :o)

I have used the brand new Happy Happy Birthday cd from Funky Hand, it is on sale now and is a really great cd to use, as always the papers are delish and there are new templates and digi stamps.

I hope you will join us and get recycling :o)

Saturday again.....seriously how did that happen?

Hmmmmm where has the last week gone? Seriously I feel robbed lol Anyway over at Allsorts we are looking for Flowers and Swirls :o)

I found this piece of vellum in my scrap drawer and thought the swirls would fit the theme perfectly, a couple of nestie layers, a few flowers from my stash and a punched flutterby and rub on sentiment and all done.

My card fits the Flutterby theme over at Daring Card Makers

Hope you'll all fine some time to join us, bet its a popular theme :o)

Get Funky time :o)

My turn to Get Funky today and Paula's fabulous theme of At the Seaside got me remembering going to the beach with my gran and grandad. My brother and I would try to be the first to shout "first to see the sea" when we got to the top of the hill that led down to the seaside. My gran had one of those old fashioned stripy deckchairs so I had a wee bash at making one lol A few straws and brads and a strip of Rainbow Stripey Stripes et voila a deckchair for Our Betty! I bet that Betty has her arm stretched out summoning a gorgeous waiter to bring her a cocktail lol

I also made a card for the theme, we all love to see the sun at the beach so I made this cheery card with the Craft the Year Away cd.

Hope you can join in with the Get Funky challenge, you have until the 14th :o)
