Have been a really naughty blogger this week and not posted since last Saturday. The main reason for this is due to the fact that I haven't made any cards as have been so busy with a few things and life got in the way.(Decorating, job interview and birthday to name them) - Did have some success and purchased this M.I.M.I.craft tote for the princely sum of £39.00 plus p/p. It is second hand but is 'as new' and considering that they are retailing at £118.00 think I got a bargain.

Will try and post this week (life permitting)

Just love this cricut cartridge - papers are Alissa from Bo Bunny and text is from Beyond Birthdays cartridge. Another nice and simple card.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 48

.... What's black and white and red all over..... a newspaper! - this is the joke I can remember from being a child ..... and this card is very appropriate for the local football team - although I have to admit I absolutely hate football!!
This week's challenge called for black, white and another colour.
Nice and simple, no patterned paper today - card is actually a strawberry colour but not photographed very well - is bazzill bling- image is garden poems, ribbon from stash.

FUNKY HAND design call

Well I thought I'd give this a go. Over at Funky Hand they are looking for a new member Saw this call on Kath's blog (love her work). The criteria is to showcase what you think is your best work in this post.

This proved difficult and was not sure which cards to choose. Over time my style has changed (and hopefully improved) so here are a mixture of old and new. Fingers and toes crossed!

Rock on!!

Aren't men and boys so difficult to make cards for?? and this was no exception as the recipient is aged 12.

Papers are from D.C.W.V. 12"x12" Rockstar and bazzill bling, guitar, skull and rock text cut from cricut Indie Art cartridge. Other text from cricut Plantin Schoolbook.
Guitar parts glittered with stickles black.
The paper actually looks pink in this photo but it's just a trick of the light.

A girl can never have too many shoes.....

I haven't done one of these for almost a year but was asked to make this for a christening. Quite enjoyed this one....... but don't want to make another for a while as they take FOREVER to put together.
Card was bazzill, alpha cuts from cricut 'New Arrival' , doodelbug heart shaped buttons and ribbon from stash.
The tag has been left blank for the giver to add a personal sentiment.
