Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 20

The challenge on SSC this week is:
"BEARY Special"
A project using a bear!
Well - I don't really "do" Bears and my heart sank! - LOL - so dramatic!
Anyhow not one to give up - I suddenly remembered I have some Forever Friends stamps -so dusted 'em off and this is the card I made.

All papers and stamps are Forever Friends.

Well that's the weekend over - off to watch some TV with the family - I wonder if they remember who I am!

Work tomorrow! Must admit, I do enjoy my job - I work with some very special people!


Sketch Saturday 64

Here's my take on this weeks sketch!
Papers used - Polka Doodles Sugar Birdies CD, as is the cupcake stampie.
Cherries and greeting are from U-mount Cupcakes.
All done with glossy accents! YUM!

Note to self - must stop this obsession with cupcakes!

Off to finish another project!


Penny Black Saturday Challenge 62

This weeks challenge is to use the colours:


I decided to alter the front of a jotter notebook (was a Tescos Jotter Pad)- 2 work colleagues have birthdays next week - I wanted to give them something homemade! So, here's 1 present! You cant see it very well but it says "Wishes" at the top! Must improve my photography skills!

Papers used - Nitwit Collections - Winter Wishes
Stamp - from "Bubbly"
Letters - from Pink Petticoat, Tiny Typed Alphas
Ribbon - in my left-overs stash ( I am trying to use up all my off-cuts - impossible - its huge - cant throw anything away!)

Bye for now!

Dont try new ideas when you've had a drink............

Well - now here's a story - I found a tutorial on You Tube for this card and wow - I love it - however this is not what I was saying on my 3rd attempt! Completely made a total and utter mess!

I will use it again - now I have the knack!
Heres the inside of the card when folded out and I decorated the back also

I have entered this card into two challenges:

Stamping for the weekend no.11 - Days gone by
Polkadoodles - to make a card with at least 2 folds!

Papers used - Papermania Boutique by Jesse Edwards
Stamps used - flower and butterfly set of foam stamps from QVC, sentiment from Elusive Images at Graphicus
Pearls are from Kanban

Until later!
