Christmas Lights...

This card uses a great stamp I have had for ages
Its a complete set of men stamps and sentiments and they are all great fun
 I have coloured him using my spectrum noir pens
Then mounted him on to some scraps of paper I had 
The paper is double-sided so I just used the off cuts to frame the image and the sentiment
Quite a quick and simple card really but I quite pleased with it
I have been making lots of wedding bits so the cards have taken a back seat
I am in the middle of doing the bouquet and needed a break lol

This card is for the following challenges:

Wedding Invites


I have been doing lots preparation for my daughters wedding whilst I am off work recovering
 from an operation and unable to drive and having to rest - which I do badly!
Most I cannot show you as the wedding day is not until 30 September
But as she sent all her invitation out early in the year I can show them
She doesn't like lots of white space so it was quite challenging working out her invites
They had decided the colour is to Cadburys Purple and when they got engaged at Gator World last year it after doing a zip line through trees so they wanted a tree
After quite a few goes this is the final design.
The tree svg file was one I brought from Esty 
and the little cat and dog a pre-coloured image from Sassy Cheryls.  
I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut everything including all the little images.
Then all I had to do was put them all together and put inside the details
The tree was carried through into the words inside
I think it worked out ok and they where easy to put together as there was only three layers and
most importantly they where really pleased with them
which is all that matters to me.

This is being entered into the following challenges

Toilet Rules

I saw a Toilet Rules sign in a local department store and thought it was funny so
I set out to make a plaque for our toilet to remind people of the rules.
I then decided that I didn't really want anything on the walls
 so decided to decorate the toilet seat!
I know its not a card but I hope people do not mind
I have used vehicle grade vinyl so that it will stand up to cleaning
I then designed what I wanted the rules to be in the Make the Cut software
Finally cutting it on my brother scan and cut

Adopted Dad


This card was made using a kit I brought in the sales in The Range last year some time
I have decoupaged the Dad bit and cut the sentiment out of the paper
I love the papers that come with this kit as they look so life like
But that means I struggle to use them as I like them so much
Is it just me who has this issue?

No Cracks about your age....



Wow how has time flown since I last blogged
I am now back home after looking after the cattery and
 then we went on holiday to the Lake District with our family

and I am one of the rare crafters that cannot craft in a mess!
Anyhow back to some cards a last:
This card uses a lovely stamp from the Oldies collections
The sentiment in the yellow part is also from the same set
The below sentiment is done in word and printed

Live Life In Full Bloom


This card I made using my new tonic stamp press
It was really just playing
The stamps are Card-i-o stamps and the inks are also tonic
Was quite impressed with the results
I liked that if an image didn't stamp properly I could just re ink and do it again
so the piece was not ruined - not bad for a play around
