It's A Man's World!

The challenge on CCT this week is to make a card for the man or boys in your life so I've used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps which I like to use for male cards.

I've coloured him with Brushables and stamped his bow tie a second time, cut it out and 3D it with foam pads. Papers are from Pink Petticoat and c.s. is Bazzill. The sentiment is from Autumn Leaves and the brads are from my stash.

Very quick card and a quick posting from me today as not feeling 100% - got a splitting headache which I can't seem to shift and the boys just won't stop talking!!! The weather here is awful....it's been pouring down with rain today and had to pop up to Dorchester this morning to get some more Sansodor (only shop that sells it in my area) as I tipped mine over the dining room table yesterday.....TWICE!!!! Just hoping the day is going to improve. On a brighter note, hope to finally get our loo fixed tomorrow as the Plumber should be bringing the part which is needed.....yes, still having to use buckets of water to flush it!!! Hoping to catch up on my blogging tonight (if my head improves).

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
