Well Done

Just when I thought I had a very long list of cards to make already, another occasion comes along which requires a card.  I don't mind this one though as it is for a cousin who has just graduated with a 2.1 from Sheffield in Leeds.  She hasn't had the best of times but has done so well.  I wish her every success in the future too.

I will enter this card into this weeks Cute Card Thursday (fly like a bird), Passion for Promarkers (song- 'Congratulations', by Cliff Richard) and Sweet Sketch Wednesday (sketch) challenges.  Again I am addicted to DigiStamp Boutique...!

Party, party!

My friend Beth gets married in a few weeks time and I was asked by the chief bridesmaid if I would make some invites for the hen party.  Unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time lately and so we agreed that I would just make an invite for Beth.  This is the card that I made this weekend....

I will enter it into this weeks Pollycraft challenge (anything goes- an old Pollycraft image that I have never used before- shame on me).

The owl and the pussy cat

Or maybe not....  but it is a birdie out of the window at least!  I fell in love with this DigiStamp Boutique image when I was in Australia and couldn't wait to get home to use it.  This is my second card.  I like the way you can make it your own.  In this case I have combined it with another set- `little birdie told me'- released last year.

Many Thanks

I made thankyou cards in bulk... not that it saved me any time (why can't I stick to a simple design??).  I like this stamp though- another recent purchase.
I will enter these into this weeks I love Promarkers challenge.

Fizzy thanks

Another thankyou card.  This time using a Fizzy moon stamp that I treated myself to a few weekends ago.  I will enter this into this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I love Promarkers challenges.

Flower Frenzy

I so want a weekend/week/month just to craft my heart out and relax.  Not going to happen...  I did try and make the most of yesterday afternoon though.  Feel like I am constantly playing catch up at the moment.  I have a list of cards as long as my arm to make.  This weekend the challenge was thankyou cards for birthday presents.  (My birthday was a month ago and so the cards are well over due :-(.)
I love this DigiStamp Boutique set of images and want to get them all out...  in time it will happen.
I will enter this card into this weeks I love Promarkers (anything goes), Pollycraft (anything goes- whoopee Pollycraft has re-opened!  I will used Pollycraft images in future challenges), Passion for Promarkers (at least 5 flowers) and Sweet Sketch Wednesday (sketch) challenges.

A childhood friend got engaged the other week and so, even though we don't keep in contact (our parents do), I thought it would be nice to send her a card.  Another Digistamp Boutique image in action- am I addicted??

Father's Day

I had to make this card today for next Sunday.  Good chance to use the DigiStamp Boutique image that I bought in April in Australia too.
I will enter this into this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday and Hobby Cutz challenges.

Thankyous to some special guys...

I wanted to make each of the guys in the group I worked with in Deakin (Australia) a 'thankyou' card.  Tiff, my supervisor, is back in the Uk for 2 weeks and so I am hoping she can take them back in her case.  If all else fails I will post them.
Inspired by Paula's announcement to reopen Pollycraft I have used some cogs and critters images.  Still have to get my hands on some of her new releases...  maybe in a few weeks time I will go shopping, when things have settled down a little here.  Too many busy weeks coming up to spend time crafting :-(.  All good stuff hopefully though :-)

I will enter these cards into this weeks Hobby Cutz challenge (masculine).


Wow it has been a long time since I have been able to spend time at the weekend making cards with my regular stash.  I was itching to get my PMs out last weekend but jet lag just didn't allow it.  Got a pile of cards that need making too- only made a small indent so far.
It is my turn to set the monthly challenge on CMLI too.  I chose the theme 'home and/or away'.  These are two 'home' cards that I made using Digi Stamp Boutique images (had to have a battle to get my printer to work again after 5 months...).
