My friend Emma asked me to make this card for her as she couldn't find a suitable card for her friends Bob. The papers are all Graphic 45, A proper gentlemen range and the hat inside is also cut from those papers. I don't normally enjoy making mens cards but once I got started I liked this one, hopefully Bob liked it :)

She's having a pamper party in my sister's hair salon so I thought I'd do her something very posh and grown up to go with her 'grown up' party. The stamp is the greeting farm and papers are just some plain cardstock I've had lying around.

The theme is punch it, I don't have many punches so there's only the one little bit of 'punching' so fingers crossed it counts!!! I'm definately going to have to invest in some more tho cuz it makes the card look even prettier :)
I've used a magnolia stamp, papermania buttons, the sentiment is a stamp from unity. Once again I've been completely useless and have no idea where my papers are from :(

While I was there I put together my card for the challenge at http://www.cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/. The theme this week is mono mania; making a card with shades of the same colour.
I've used a magnolia stamp coloured with my promarkers, papers are making memories, buttons are papermania and the sentiment is a stamp I borrowed off Katrina at our little get together this evening.
Hmmm, now what to do with the rest of the evening??? Danny seem's firmly settled infront of the xbox (again) so it looks like I'll be doing some more cards :)

Anyway, the theme of the challenge over at http://www.aspoonfullofsugarchallenge.blogspot.com/ is one for the boys so here's my handywork.
I've used a magnolia stamp of edwin and customised him to turn him into an old man by drawing a little moustache on him. Not too sure what my background paper is but the polka dots and diamonds (or old mans socks as I like to call it) are my mind's eye.
Well it's time for bed, my book's calling me to be finished!

Here's the card I've made using the sketch at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com/.
The image is the from the greeting farm and the paper is making memories (I'm learning).
Anyway Danny is still playing his new computer game so it doesn't look like I'll be watching a film anytime soon :( Oh well, looks like it's off to bed with a vampire book instead, so it's not all bad :)

I've had a very busy day today, we took the kids out for a walk to town fo an hour and it ended up lasting 6!!! Oops :s
On the plus note, today's been quite lucky for me, I picked the winner on the grand national and won my first ever blog candy (Thanks Grace, can't wait to get my hands on it). I'm beginning to wish I'd bought a lottery ticket now tho!
I was going to go and watch a film now I've finished my card but Danny bought a new computer game today and is completely engrossed so looks like there's more card making to be done - the joys of being computer game widow :)

I decided to be adventurous today and make a card for my first ever online challenge, now to figure out how to actually link my blog to the right place!!!
I've used the sketch over at http://sundaysketchandstamp.blogspot.com and am also adding it to the challenge at http://anyoneforanya.blogspot.com/.
I've used a C.C. desgns digi stamp and coloured it in with my trusty pro markers but have absolutely no idea what papers I've used (I tend to lose track as I have to keep them well hidden from my little terrors).
Oh well, time to clear away now I've finished crafting for the night and then I think it's time for a well earned bowl of chocolate triffle :)
