Sporty 13th


A commission for a sporty 13 yr old. He likes swimming, sailing, surfing and rugby and supports N/ton Saints.

I started by Googling  some free images and added them to the postcard template.
The BP was made by reducing the image opacity in graphics prog
The scroll is printed on some really cheap parchment like paper (Home Bargains 49p per pad) - edges distressed

Sentimental Sundays #130 - easel card

Birds or Animals at CACB


Birds or Animals
(no people or insects allowed for this one)

This challenge has given me a good excuse to make a LO featuring my favourite little pup, Jacques, my DD's 'guard' dog. 
He is a Shorkie and 5 years old. He may be tiny but he has a BIG personality, loves going fishing and taking anyone willing on very long walks.

Most of the elements here are from the Traditional Christmas Scrapbook Kit except the frame (metallics collection) and bookplate (cream dream) all can be found in Crafty Ann's shop here

We do hope you will be able to play along with us for this challenge. As usual the DT have done a grand job and you can see their samples over at CACB

If you pop on over to the Crafty Ann's Digi Shop you will find there is now a FREEBIES Section where you can grab something for free.  Whilst you are there you might like to check the rest of the shop as some kits have been reduced in price.

I'd also to enter the following challenges
Tanda Teaser - anything Christmas
Whimsy #53 - traditional Christmas colours
Artistic Inspirations #16 - anything goes

Thank you for stopping by

All buttons and the ribbon from stash.

The mat is an inked up Imperial M-bossabilities folder and the photo, layered on to a nestie floral oval is fixed with foam pads.

Monochromatic Birthday


Phew!! I've had a few hectic weeks - I just recovered from my holiday and then had a weekend away for a family wedding - then spent two weeks minding DD's business, the grandchildren and pup - and now got my dear auntie to stay for a week which will be a pleasure but probably not leave me much time to make cards or tend the blog.

This 'creation' is for a friend and quite CAS for me.
Papers - Papermania
Die cut - nestie floral oval
Seam binding ribbon
Pearly button

Unstampabelles #17 - monochromatic
The Pink Elephant #174 - punches/dies

Tic Tac Toe at Crafty Ann's


The topic for this fortnight has been chosen by Kym

~~ Tic Tac Toe ~~

use three items in a row horizontally, diagonally or vertically

I have chosen the bottom line and used the pink abstract pattern for the main BP which I lightly over-stamped with TH flourish stamp using Sugar Pink DI in two corners.
I then used pale brown embossed dots paper, roughed up and sponged the edges - did the same with a piece of music paper and also curled two corners.
Both papers can be found in the shop.
I've had the pretty lady stamp for yonks and can't remember where I got her. She  has been languishing for too long and needed to get out into the world again :)
She has been glued to a Spellbinder oval and this is fixed on to the music paper  with foam pads


The charm, lace, seam binding ribbon and pearls from my stash.

You can see my lovely DT buddies fantastic samples over at CACB 
It will be lovely if you can join us for this challenge and play Tic Tac Toe with us
