The yearly piggy card!

Hello :o)  I have a midweek post for a change, maybe I'll be back to daily posts one day, you never know!

Here's my 'yearly piggy card' - one of my mum's friends loves pigs, so I make a pig themed card for her each year (suggestions for next year's image gratefully received!).  This one's a wee bit bright, but Petunia's got her sunglasses on so she's fine lol.

Stamp - Petunia in Love - Stamping Bella
Colouring - copics
Papers - Sunshine & Happiness - Simple Stories
Stitched frame & flower dies - MFT die-namics
Banner stamps & dies - Whimsy
Doodlebug enamel dots, twine & gems from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - use patterned paper
Dream Valley - square cards only

Thanks for popping in :o)

Sweet Stampin' - children's birthday

Happy Saturday :o)

I really must get into the habit of blogging regularly again - I have cards to blog, but just forget to do it!  It's become a once a week thing, instead of a daily one... must try harder!!

Anyway... our challenge at Sweet Stampin' for this week is 'children's birthday', and I've no idea how I ended up with a girly one as I actually needed a card for a boy, but never mind lol.



I've used all older stash on this one, apart from the image which I just couldn't resist - she's called Helga Hippo and she's from Polkadoodles.  The papers are Forever Friends, sentiment is Paper Smooches and the die is Memory Box... image coloured with copics.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Cutie Pie Challenge - all creatures great & small
Crafty Catz - anything goes + optional spots & stripes
Polkadoodles - anything goes

Thanks for popping in :o)

60th Birthday Fancy Fold

Happy Saturday :o)

I found some photos of cards that I must have forgotten to blog... here's one that I made using Crafter's Companion goodies when I was on their DT.



It was made using the Big Score board and was nearly 12" tall, so I had to alter an A4 envelope to fit it!  Products were mostly from the Birthday Party range.  I can't remember what the fold's called, if it has a name... any ideas?

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - make it masculine
The Male Room - off the edge
Crafty Cardmakers - for a special man/boy or Father's Day
Pile It On - fancy folds

I haven't updated on the dreaded diet thing for a while, so for anyone who's interested, I've now lost 31 lbs... slow and steady, I'm in no mad rush lol.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Sweet Stampin' - for Dads or Special Men

Hello :o)

I'm a bit late with my Sweet Stampin' DT card, as it was our 10th wedding anniversary this weekend and I just didn't manage to squeeze in blogging.  Our theme for this week is 'for Dads or special men', so I made Pav's anniversary card using a fun new stamp I bought recently...


It comes with a few different sentiments... I've just repeated the 'love you' one.  It's also huge, so I adapted a 6" square card to fit it.  Coloured with copics (badly, as one of my pens started to run out halfway through colouring!), the papers are scraps from an old My Minds Eye pad.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - anything goes
Crafty Cardmakers - special man/ boy or Father's Day
Addicted to Stamps - animals
Crazy 4 Challenges - repeat 3 times (stamped 'love you' 3 times)

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)
