For Dad

Good Morning,

What a lovely day today - bright sun shine - I've even managed to get my bedding on the line which is blowing beautifully ( funny how it is only us females that say anything like that ?).
I have a day or two off from work for appointments but managed to make this little cutie card.

I've always loved seeing animal card that other bloggers have done, but never really taken to them myself until now -  so cute.  Hopefully the shading of the fur looks ok.  Don't you just love those brads too - I totally forgot I had them but think they are apt for the tool box theme together with my new embossing folder.

Challenges:-
Lils Little Fairies - Sketch.
Whimsey Challenge - Distressing.
Cute Card Thursday - Animal as the main focus

Hope you all enjoy your day in whatever you are doing.
Hugs
Thanks for popping by.

Spring has sprung.

Hello there,
What is the weather doing? such a mixed bag of affairs - hopefully you are all coping with whatever is being thrown your way.
I've taken the week off from work, and have been in my skirts and woolies to! I managed to have a play after a few weeks off blogging due to work commitments! ...
I cut down a 6"x6" card with my deckle edger, cut out three memory box flowers and laid them down instead of using backing papers. I used fruity colours and complimented it with the fruity coloured ribbon. The image is LOTV. Her wings have been stickled, but doesn't show very well in the picture. The clouds have been chalked.
Challenges:-
Stamp and Create - Spring
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Passion for Promarkers - Whatever the weather.
Crafts and Me - Bows and Butterflies.
I love Promarkers - Springtime.
Simon Says - Favourite Tool (mine is the cuttlebug)
Whimsy Inspirational Challenge - Use ribbon on your card.
Lili's Little fairies - Ribbons and Bows.

Short and sweet today,
Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs
